My wife and I wanted a place to stay within 20 minutes of Asheville. We fell in love with the look of the rustic outside of the cabin, but with all of the modern luxuries inside such as electricity, AC, bathroom with shower. Pisgah Brewery is only a mile or two away. The spiral stairs are not a problem unless you have mobility issues. Although there's not a view of the mountains, the view and sounds of the woods puts you in the middle of nature. This was great for a romantic getaway to celebrate our anniversary. We are planning on bringing the kids on our next family trip to Asheville.
There is a nearby boys summer camp that has a rifle range. Honestly, we could not even hear the echo when inside. It really didn't both us when we were outside. They only used the range during the day when we were off in Asheville. It could bother people without a tolerance for noise. More
