Cozy 200 sq ft, off-grid, creekside mountain retreat on 28 acres in the Smoky Mountains. No electricity or plumbing- 'glamping' at it's finest! A quiet getaway just 30 minutes from Asheville, NC. At 3500 ft. in elevation, it's mild during summer days and cool at night. The dark sky’s of Yancey county make for amazing star viewing. Cabin has ample solar lanterns and is well stocked w wood for fire-making. Relax and disconnect in this unique, comfortable space. Pets welcome for an extra $25 fee.

The space
The road turns to gravel 0.7 miles before the cabin, and is not a problem for any car or truck. However if there is snow or ice on the road, it becomes difficult to travel on. We reserve the right to cancel dates depending on the weather.

Guest access
There is another house on the property- about 300 feet up the hill. It’s used only occasionally by us- you will not run into other guests there.

Other things to note
The bathroom is a new Port-a-John, about 40 feet from the cabin. It is cleaned weekly. We have a portable camping shower you can fill with warm water and enjoy outside- in warm weather or the creek is a refreshing rinse!
There is no Wifi and the Verizon signal is spotty. Calls and texts are usually not a problem. Blue tooth speaker is available in the cabin.
The cabin is fully stocked w cooking/eating wares, all linens, wood for fire, and ample solar lights for a dreamy night time experience.

My husband and I built this sweet little cabin 30 min North of our home in Asheville, North Carolina. We use it to unplug and reconnect with nature. The dark sky in Yancey County gives amazing star viewing, the creek is calming and the views in all directions are tranquil. We are road cyclists and enjoy the beautiful roads and minimal traffic in this part of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Feel free to contact me for ride suggestions!

We live 30 min away in Asheville so you will not likely see us. However, we are available via message and phone if anything comes up or you have specific questions. I will send tips, info and area hiking suggestions about a week before your stay.
