Secluded mountain property on a private road with a few neighbors. Really you can't even see the neighbor houses. You'll feel like the whole mountain is yours.
There is no public transit to the home. Flying Squirrel Cabin is on a private unpaved mountain road; medium grade to semi steep so front wheel or 4 wheel drive recommended. Travelers from airport-please rent accordingly.

About the Host, Jb
I'm JB the one on the right and DuMont is my partner. We love the Blue Ridge and Smoky Mountains. One of our favorite hobbies is vintage trailers! If you come stay in Flying Squirrel you will see the 1951 Spartan trailer in process of renovation. Its here on the property. I promise not to work on it while you are staying here!
We would be thrilled to have you come for a stay and enjoy the Newfound Mountains and Asheville area. There are so many festivals and activities you may not be able to do everything in one trip. Even though we're from Michigan we still say, "Come on down !"
