About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Appalachia at its best. A mountain cabin re-created within the basement (first floor, ground level) of my home for your pleasure. Private entrance(s), covered deck/patio, open deck, great view, very private setting.

The location has an East-West orientation, with beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Great place to sit, relax, and enjoy your favorite beverage.

The cabin is fully self contained. It has its own kitchen, bath with shower (no tub), and a small living/dining area. One bedroom with a king size bed.

Centrally located between I-40 and I-26, on Busbee Mountain, the property borders the Biltmore Estate and blends in with the Blue Ridge Parkway at an elevation of 3,346 feet.

Well behaved pets are more than welcome!

Easy booking online or with the owner using check or credit cards.

About George Stanley

I am retired. I enjoy my two cats, Olly and Geo.

I retired from the Community College System and enjoy meeting people, thus the rental.

I enjoy traveling and finding neat places. I hope I have created one here.

George Stanley purchased this apartment in 2007

Why George Stanley chose Asheville

I had a half -finished basement when I purchased the home, which I separated from the house upstairs. I envisioned a downstairs cabin so others could enjoy the beautiful mountains as I do.

What makes this apartment unique

Living on a rural mountain and bordering the Biltmore Estate Property, there is an abundance of wildlife - turkey, deer, pheasants, bear, raccoons, generally all sorts of wildlife. I have pictures of bear in the yard and in close-by trees.

At an elevation of 3,346 feet, the cabin overlooks a huge valley. The valley is often filled with fog, creating a beautiful sunrise at eye-level.

Wonderful Mountain Escape!

  • 5 of 5

The Stanley Cabin was great! Perfectly located off 40 between Asheville, Chimney Rock, and the blue ridge parkway. Your literally in a cabin overlooking a beautiful view. The owner George was a wonderful host. Very knowledgeable about the area. We are already booked to go back in the fall. My wife and I along with our two dogs Lexie and Maggie would highly recommend.

Cozy & accommodating

  • 5 of 5

Perfect getaway with my husband and two small dogs. Usually we don’t stay in an attached unit because our dogs are old and we like our privacy, but glad we made an exception for a long weekend getaway. The unit had everything we needed & it was a 15-

20 minute drive to everything. You’ll want to skip this place if you are uncomfortable on narrow, winding roads & I wouldn’t recommend driving a car. Also, it’s similar to apartment living, in that you can hear walking above you, but nothing obnoxious. George, the owner, was very hospitable without encroaching on our vacation time. We definitely hope to return.

Great little cabin in the mountains!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Cabin is small but has everything you need. I'm sure the view was amazing but it was totally foggy the whole weekend. Highly recommend!

The owner was very nice and helpful. The view is amazing for sunset and sunrise. Make sure to bring some food so you can cook and just relax for a day. Would highly recommend this property.

Fantastic get away retreat

  • 5 of 5

Loved our cozy cabin. It was exactly as advertised and well off the beaten path. If that is what you are looking for, this is the place to stay. George was extremely hospitable and gave us all the space we needed. We had ice the night before we were to leave and George offered us plenty of options including putting our vehicle at the bottom of the hill. Since no one was due to come in the day we were leaving, we decided to ride it out in the cabin which he was fine with. Incredible views, even in winter. Now that we've done a winter stay, we'll be planning one for the other seasons. Thanks, George.
