This architect designed split-level cabin, 'Mountain Laurel', is situated on a ridgetop at an elevation of 2900 feet at Gateway Mountain, a 3000 acre gated nature preserve and mountain residential community. (see Gateway link below.)

The cabin is nestled on almost four acres among large wild mountain laurels surrounded by a hardwood forest with pastoral valleys and distant mountain views.

Be warned though, the drive to get to the home is STEEP! We were in...

Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review - it is much appreciated. Tim and I are glad you enjoyed the property. When we first bought the house, the drive up intimidated me a little too - we are from Florida after all - now I don't even think about it. You should see it in... more

Overall, we had a great long weekend in this cabin outside of Asheville. It was a bit of a drive, more than 30 mins to downtown Asheville, but we enjoyed the downtown area and the zoo.
