Overview

About the property

Nice Cabin With 3 Bedrooms 1.5 Bath Off Private Drive Sits On Bee Tree Creek

Escape to this quiet cabin located on the pristine waters of Bee Tree Creek coming directly off the watershed with your own private bamboo forest. In less than 15 minutes you can be in either downtown Asheville or Black Mountain as it sits directly between the two nestled in a valley near Warren Wilson College. The property backs up to miles of hiking trails, mountains and vistas but is 5 minutes from groceries , Starbucks and 10 minutes to the Blue Ridge Parkway. In the 1950's this property was part of "Camp Singing Waters".

The newly remodeled modern rustic cabin has 3 bedrooms( 2 down and 1 up) with queen size beds and plenty of closet space. There is a full bathroom with large shower on the main floor and a half bath upstairs. There are living rooms on both floors with a reading room upstairs with a small sofa. There is also a futon couch that would hold a child or 2 upstairs.. The dining table seats six with additional seating on the adjoining screened porch. The kitchen has all your basic cooking needs with a dishwasher. There is a washer and dryer for your convenience. The living room has a flat screen tv with a dvd player and a good selection of movies. We have free wifi so you can connect with our hdmi cord to your laptop and watch your netflix etc. if you have them (no cable). We also have a house phone with unlimited long distance since your cell reception may be spotty although texting seems to work ok. The front of the house has a large screened in porch that comes directly in from the parking area with no stairs. It faces the creek and bamboo forest as does the living room and kitchen area via french doors. The back of the house and the 2 downstairs bedrooms look up the mountain into miles of wilderness. The upstairs bedroom has a large dormer window that looks down on the creek and bamboo forest. You will cross the creek and disappear into an acre of large bamboo with manicured paths. If you are looking to escape from it all, yet be close to it all, this is your place.

Also, please check out our new listing next door VRBO number 1284900 if you need a little more space, the cabin is unavailable, or you have too many people for one house.

About Christopher Eckart

Brian and Chris Eckart (brothers) have lived in the area for several years and love camping in their motor homes. Both own vintage campers that they live in as well on the adjacent property to cabin when in town. When they discovered this land it had a magic that they just had to share. After much hard work they created a fun, beautiful, and relaxing refuge from the busy world. Both are semi retired. Brian is an artist with his art on display and for sale throughout the cabin. Chris is the entertainment director and the better looking of the two.

Christopher Eckart purchased this cabin in 2013

Truely a slice of heaven on earth.

  • 5 of 5

When booking this cabin we had no ideal where exactly the location was. Upon arriving we were so excited to see such a lovely setting.

The cabin itself was clean. We really loved the screened in porch. Sitting on the porch you are able to hear the creek.

Yes, there is a creek in the front of the house with a rock bridge taking you into a forest of bamboo.Such serenity.

Relaxing in the hammock with the water running by was so relaxing. As well as the fire we built at night by the creek.

The cabin is centrally located between Black Mountain and Ashville, both just minutes away.

We enjoyed our visits with Mack the cat. He welcomed us upon arrival and every morning.

Chris the owner was available when needed to answer all our questions.

WE WILL DEFINITELY BE COMING BACK!!

Terrific Get-a-way!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week at the cabin, and had a wonderful time. The location is perfect, only about 15 minutes from Asheville and only 10 or so minutes from Black Mountain. I'm not big on crowds, so after a day at Biltmore, it's nice to get away to the solitude of this place - so peaceful! The cabin is also convenient to Chimney Rock and Catawba Falls, which were both spectacular! When our adventuring was done, we enjoyed the relaxing sounds of the creek that runs through the property. We were pleasantly surprised by a nearby hiking trail that made morning walks with our dog very convenient. Magic, our enthusiastic Labrador, also made some pup friends and enjoyed running along the creek gathering up sticks. The kids enjoyed crossing the creek to the bamboo forest, and made friends with the children staying next door. Wifi was very good on the property - we brought our Roku device, and it plugged easily into the TV so that we could watch movies. There was also a large stack of DVDs in case you want a quiet "movie night". We had last minute friends in the area that wanted to visit, and Chris was a very gracious host. We will definitely make this cabin our preferred place to stay when we are back in the area!

Relaxing cabin

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was quaint and comfortable. Our kids six and two loved the creek, hiking and the bamboo forest. The cabin feels secluded but close to everything. Chris one on the owners was more than helpful. We will definitely visit again.

Cute Country Cabin ... with all the amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing Christmas in this cozy, comfortable oasis. We had plenty of space for three adults and three kids to spread out. The natural surroundings are lovely, and the house itself was perfect for us. We especially appreciated the well-stocked kitchen with an ample supply and selection of dishes, cooking equipment and appliances. The owners (who might be the nicest people in the world) really thought of everything including the little things like lots of outlets, plenty of extra linens, and everything down to the last light bulb in perfect working order. They really care about the house and taking care of their guests! We hope to visit here again!! A++++++

Casual and comfortable cabin

  • 5 of 5

For our family of three adults and two little children, the cabin is a nice place to stay and play, offering privacy and peace and quiet. A good getaway, off the beaten track --- but only about a ten minute drive to I 40 which conveniently takes you wherever you want to explore. A few quiet places inside and outside where you can read or talk. Clean. Thoughtfully planned hospitality. Artwork by one of the owners brightens this creek-side cabin.

The most amazing combination of relaxation and centrality to all of Asheville's offerings!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is beautiful and spacious, in such a calm, peaceful location. We immediately felt right at home. Our entire family, from Grandparents to toddler loved the stay, there was absolutely something for everyone. The walking trail is wonderful, coffee on the screened in porch in the morning and a beer on the porch in the evening is perfection. The creek and lush green surroundings provide such a relaxing back drop for your stay, I didn't want to go home! We will most definitely be back!
