Stayed here in May, as lodging closer to downtown is considerably more expensive. This place has a comfortable, farm-like feeling that you won't find closer to the major attractions of Asheville. We enjoyed the cats that roam the property and really felt blessed to have the opportunity to sit quietly on large rocks down by the stream in the evening and have a few drinks under the stars. The stream water is ice cold, and as the sun goes down in the evening, the large river rocks hold incredible warmth which makes for a cozy setting. The property manager was more than accommodating and gives sound advice about getting around in the nearby towns. These cabins are suited to nature-lovers and antique-lovers alike. If you like that old-time, pioneer feeling, you'll enjoy it here. If you prefer more posh and contemporary accommodations within walking distance to downtown, this may not be the spot for you. Also, if you enjoy spending evenings indoors watching TV and surfing the web, this is not the place for you. There was wi-fi on the hilltop by the office, but that's not the point of staying at these cabins. This is a "BBQ, sit-on-the-front-porch, read-a-book on the swing, pick-fruit at random, daydream in the grass" kind of country place. It's a bit of a drive to the major attractions or good food, but a great value for the price. My only advice is to bring a couple of your own towels, as you may want/prefer more towels or different towels than are provided. Overall, the place feels like home and is a great stress-reliever. I don't have children, but I could see this as being the perfect place for kids of all ages! Lots of space to run wild, explore nature and just be an active kid! Also, this place is VERY KIND AND WELCOMING TO PETS. Your pet will love it here!!!!!!!!!
