Welcome to our (320sf/29m) rustic cabin. We live 23 minutes to Asheville and 7 minutes to the quaint river town of Marshall. Folks love our place for the homemade character of the cabin, mountain views and unique hilly garden setting. It is perfect for couples or a single traveler seeking minimalist simplicity. Doggies welcome too!

Un-plug from the complexities of modern life while enjoying proximity to major sights, starry night skies and a sunrise over our gardens.

The space
Rustic elegance, a notch above 'glamping'. Our cozy 2 floor cabin is, on top of a hill overlooking our 'home hill' of 2.5 acres covered in young fruit shrubs and nut trees. On the first floor is the kitchen, small dining area and porch. Upstairs is a full-size bed and reading nook with mtn views. The kitchen is stocked with cookware, an electric burner, spices, oil, and a water heater (for coffee or tea), small fridge, and drinking water. The water system is rustic, but it works well. Fill up your own water from the spigot nearby. The cabin has a pit latrine (dry toilet) and a camp shower, using propane tank to heat the water. Wi-fi is weak to medium strength depending on your device but can be gotten with persistence from deck or window, and parking area

In cold weather, there is a space heater and a wood cookstove, the cabin is tight and heats easily in winter. There's a garden fence that doubles as a pet enclosure (Yes, your doggies are welcome!) a fire ring for enjoying the nighttime out-of-doors and a few interesting walks and steep trails around the neighborhood that we have helped developed.

People have booked our cabin for romantic getaways, for personal writing, reading and music retreats but mainly for it's awesome proximity to hiking and culture. Many folks come to get a feel for staying in a tiny home and for the botanical appeal of our hillside gardens.

During your stay

We live with our three girls a close walk down the hill and will be happy to meet and greet if we're able to. The neighborhood is full of friendly people and we often have visitors out for a walk. The cabin stands alone but is definitely part of a shared environment, because we do gardening up around the cabin and because of the nearness of our good neighbors. This gives you the choice of a social environment, but also the solitude of a hilltop hideaway with a fenced enclosure. During the late Spring, Summer and early Fall, we are are cultivating veggies, flowers and fruits up around the Cabin, but only during the day between 10am-sundown. We make a point to give guests total privacy in the morning and evening.
