Asheville, North Carolina
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. Quiet surroundings allow our guests to experience the woods and all her creatures with no distractions from the noises typically found in a city or from traffic.

The cabin features two bedrooms, two baths, and a family room with a sleeper queen couch. On the upper level is the large open living, dining, and kitchen area, with a woodstove and an outside deck with a gas grill; the master bedroom with king bed, bathroom and walk-in closet. On...

We have stayed at numerous locations in and around the Asheville area and this is by far the best location yet! What an amazing view, a bit of a climb to get there but it is well worth it! Lynne and Tim have made this little cottage in the clouds a home away from home with all that you need and more. Thank you for sharing your little piece of heaven we can't wait to...

This is a beautiful home. I stayed with my parents, my husband, and my 2 children. The home has been equipped with thoughtful touches such as soaps, lotions, pantry items, coffee, laundry detergent, etc. There were games, puzzles, movies, and books. The view is gorgeous! Be warned though, the drive to get to the home is STEEP! We were in a minivan and did fine (in a lower gear). If you stay you should make...

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...

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. I would definitely recommend both LAB for lunch/dinner and The Blackbird for brunch. Like others said, the drive up the mountain is steep, but not impossible. The directions Lynne provided were spot on. If you are planning on bringing...
