We have always stayed in motels on all of our travels, but this being our tenth anniversary and ten years since our last trip to Asheville, we wanted something memorable. I had started looking into "bed and breakfast" lodging, when I ran across the ad for this motor court.
The cabins are 70 years-old with uneven floors and nothing is square. The cabin smells of smoke from the wood-burning fireplace. The road leading up to the cabins wasn't paved but gravel... and we loved it all!!!
The cabins are kept immaculately clean. Our cabin had a fridge, ceiling fan and excellent A/C (not that it was needed). I spent a large part of my time on the porch enjoying the rocking chair and a glass of ice tea.
The staff was friendly, helpful and engaging. We hope we didn't slow them down from doing their jobs, we loved talking to them. Even though you feel you're in the middle of the woods, with all of the trees and wildlife, it's actually only 10 minutes from downtown Asheville.
If you like a little "character" and a laid-back atmosphere, you'll love the place. Just understand you're getting a little history with all it's quirks and character.
