This was a great place to spend the weekend with all my friends. It has a full kitchen, Xbox One, ping pong table, hot tub, and plenty of space.
Wow, the Asheville Cabin is the perfect mix of a mountain getaway that is 10 minutes from downtown! My family stayed here over a long weekend and found the relaxation we were looking for and also got to experience Asheville. As we drove up to it we passed the beautiful Grove Park Inn and due to the warm weather, we noticed lots of people playing golf and just down the street we found a great walking path around Beaver Lake! We didn’t feel like going out after traveling and ordered speedy delivery from Asheville Pizza, hit the spot!
The house is fully stocked, has 3 bedrooms and 3 ½ baths, plenty of room for everyone but still feels like a cozy cabin where everyone can gather together or have some time to their own in the sitting room, great room, or game room inside and coffee on the deck with only the sound of the birds saying hello was just what we needed.
On Sunday, we found Saint Eugene’s Parish, less than 10 minutes away… a happy welcoming place that even treated us to a pancake breakfast! Monday we explored downtown… Doc Chey’s ramen with local trout is a must try! Mast General Store has a candy section that reminded me of the penny candy as a little girl… fireball anyone? We ended the day at the French Broad Chocolate Lounge for a Salted Caramel Liquid Truffle drink that is making my mouth water as I write this.
Asheville is a funky small city that we have only started to explore; we will definitely be back and hope the Asheville Cabin is available!
OK, went on vacation, but didn't want to give up my favorite things like coffee, beer, pizza, and running. Staying at the Asheville Cabin was perfect! Was able to do a hard (or an easy) run then go get a bagel, great coffee from Edna's, and get back up to the house before my latte got cold! Relaxed in the awesome sitting area. Really relaxed in the outdoor hot tub!! Lots of cute touches like the furry chair and nice fire pit! Oh, nice tech touches as well with USB ports in the bedroom outlets and a spot for my Apple watch! Awesome mountain retreat with all the luxuries of the city!
We had the best stay at the Asheville Cabin over New Year’s weekend! It is tucked in the mountain above the Grove Park Inn and the 10 minute drive from downtown was beautiful with many houses fully decorated with holiday lights. The house is surrounded by trees and it was unusually warm so we were able to relax on the deck and were amazed at how quiet it was but so close to the grocery store, coffee shop, downtown, The Biltmore, amazing restaurants and arguably some of the best microbreweries in the country.
The house is perfect for a couple with large master suite, with large jetted tub and shower in the bath. It also has a sleeping area nearby with twin/full bunk for family with small children. The main floor has a large but cozy great room with stove which was perfect on the few nights it did get chilly, and TV to watch the Ball drop and fireworks around the world. Fully stocked kitchen which we used for breakfast and lunch, the sitting room was the perfect place for coffee/wine and conversation. We took advantage of all the great restaurants and ate dinner at Avenue M, Posana, Juicy Lucy’s, Luella's Bar-B-Que and Sunday Brunch at Tupelo Honey Café! We didn’t stay long enough to need the washer and dryer but great to find a rental with one available.
Downstairs we found two additional bedrooms, bathroom and another TV space that we didn’t need this visit but would be perfect for other couples or a place for the kids to hang out. We understand the owners have plans to do some upgrades down there this winter and can’t wait to see the end result! Happy New Year to all and we will definitely be back to the Asheville Cabin with family and friends as it is perfect for a couple’s getaway and large enough for a family gathering!
