About Tony and Birgit DiBartolo

Our family moved to Asheville a year ago full time when Tony retired from the restaurant business. Four years ago, we purchased a cabin in NE Asheville so that we could have a place to visit and bring our dogs. We knew that we would have to rent it as a short term rental to be able to afford to have it. It's has been so successful that since then, we have purchased 4 more vacation rental properties and now devote our time to renting and maintaining those properties. We enjoy the communication with travelers and being able to provide a great place to stay in Asheville that's pet friendly, convenient and reasonably priced. It's important to us that our guests know that we do everything we can to make their vacation memorable. After all, we want you to keep coming back!

Tony and Birgit DiBartolo purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Tony and Birgit DiBartolo chose Leicester

We fell in love with the property before we even entered the house. We think the grounds are amazing and peaceful. That the house was so rustic and charming was a bonus.

What makes this cabin unique

The previous owner recognized the uniqueness of the property and went to lengths to maximize the appeal of the grounds with a waterwheel and small waterfall. We built a firepit/gathering area near the water features and have created an outdoor space that is beautiful and peaceful. The custom built log cabin (built in the 70's) feels like it was built in the early 1900's and has so much rustic charm.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house. As advertised. Perfect for family of 4 (2 teens). So many extras -- best of all the welcoming bottle of wine! Would definitely recommend and hope to stay again in the Spring/Summer when it's not so cold!

Wonderful Cabin Outside of Asheville

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great stay at this charming cabin! It had all of the amenities to make us feel at home and was very clean and well-maintained. We really enjoyed the close proximity to the great restaurants in Asheville and local attractions. We will definitely visit again.

Cozy cabin in a winter wonderland

  • 5 of 5

During our stay the area experienced an unexpected amount of snow. Beautiful scenery, though it limited which local shops and attractions were open and available. Fortunately, this cabin had plenty of fun and entertaining activities to keep everyone occupied and happy. The owners were very helpful and accommodating to our weather-related travel delays. The local Ingles grocery store was only a few miles away and had everything we wanted. Would definitely stay here again if traveling to the area.

Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was adorable and the cleanest we have ever stayed in. It seemed private and quiet but was only a short drive to downtown Asheville and plenty to do there. The owners checked in to make sure we had arrived safely and had everything we needed. Would definitely recommend and stay again. We thanks!

Cozy mountain home just as described in VBRO. Serene setting in the farm area but close to town.

  • 4 of 5

The owners were extremely helpful, communicated well, and pleasant. Our only suggestion would be a larger hot water tank for showers. Definitely would return

Cozy, clean cabin with a great fire pit, and perfect distance from West Asheville!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. The cabin is very comfortable. The front porch is so nice and relaxing and a perfect reading spot. And my favorite part was that there were lots of wonderful books in every room! Oh, and there is a great Ingle's right down the road. Terrific location!
