This two story log cabin was originally built in 1820 by Eli Reeves, an Indiana furniture maker. In the fall of 2015 it was moved log by log to our farm and was restored to feel like you stepped back in time but with very special touches. If these logs could talk!
The first word most guests say is "wow" and we worked hard to earn that.
We set out to create something special that would stand out to share with guests. Come experience this piece of history and make some memories of your own.

The space
The main level of the cabin has a living room that includes a queen sofa bed, stone wood burning fireplace, dining area, half bath and a kitchen with all the modern appliances not available in 1820. The first floor ceiling height is quite tall at over 8 feet which is very unusual for a cabin of this vintage. It has several windows on each level to aid in natural light as well as seeing the beauty of the surrounding woods. The second floor bedroom includes a queen bed and a twin sofa bed. The modern bathroom addition has a tiled stall shower, soaking tub, stacked washer and dryer, toilet and sink. The cabin logs are all original and the windows, doors and fireplace are in their original location. The cabin is in a private setting with a front and back porch for enjoying a close in mountain valley view with a creek, sheep, chickens, llamas and cows.

Guest access
The cabin is located on the property where we also live yet is a private distance from our home. We are happy to share the grounds around the cabin, at the pond and below the house, but ask that you respect our privacy and not explore around our home. I am happy to arrange a time for a personal visit with the animals should you desire this, otherwise, you are free to enjoy the animals from the fences.

Other things to note
The cabin is located at Hobbyknob Farm, a working fiber farm. That means our animals are raised and sheared to produce fleeces used for crafts.
We are four miles from Weaverville North Carolina and 12 from downtown Asheville. Easy year round access and just two miles from I-26. The property overlooks a 2000 acre Young Life kids camp and is adjacent to a 500 acre cattle farm. We are close to the Blue Ridge Parkway, Navitat Zip Line Tours, and endless outdoor activities like fly fishing and horseback riding and hiking. ( books and brochures in the cabin) Endless back roads for motorcycle and bicycle rides. Take in a minor league baseball game. Attend the many festivals and art tours our area is known for.

We realize that our dogs are a part of our family and often travel with us. Therefore, we allow WELL BEHAVED dogs. We prefer only ONE but will consider 2 if you discuss with us ahead of time. YOU MUST TELL US ABOUT YOUR DOG WHEN YOU BOOK, BREED, BEHAVIOR, ETC. We have our own dogs and many animals so you must keep your dog on a leash anytime they are outside. I do realize that some dogs are so well trained that they will stay with the owner or respond quickly to commands and may be off leash a bit. PLEASE let us know at the time of reservation that you are bringing a pet. We have a pet fee of thirty dollars that we have to collect separately from the airbnb payment. If you have a dog that gets anxious when you leave please consider bringing a crate. The wood in this house is very old and we would be very angry if a dog chews up window sills or scratches up doors and floors. It will effect your review and there will be a claim made through airbnb should this happen. YOU MUST KEEP YOUR DOGS OFF THE BEDS AND FURNITURE. WE SUPPLY OLD TOWELS IF YOU CANNOT DO THIS OR YOU NEED TO CLEAN UP YOUR DOG.

The cabin is located towards the end of a valley on a public road that dead ends at a Young Life Camp. On the road in you also pass a large Polled Hereford Cattle Ranch. Close in mountain views, pastures and animals are your view. We live in a vacation wonderland. Easy to find activities or the chance to sit and relax and catch up on spending time with the special people in your life. We love it here and want to share Western North Carolina and our spectacular 196 year old restored log cabin with our guests. We want you to leave with memories that last forever.

We, Daron and Elizabeth, are excited to share this old log cabin and our lovely mountain valley with you. We moved to Weaverville from Atlanta 19 years ago when our daughter was 14 months old and never looked back. We love the interest in local food, independent restaurants, arts and outdoor activities the area has to offer. I particularly love looking at the mountains as I drive around.
