This modern, dog friendly retreat is a converted shipping container situated at the entry to our 125 acre mountain top retreat which backs up to Pisgah National Forest. Enjoy all the best hikes on the Blue Ridge Parkway just 4 miles away and then head 25 minutes into Asheville for all its amazing food, music, and beer. We provide the luxury of electricity, heat and air conditioning, with a little taste of being off grid with an outhouse and an outdoor solar shower bag.

The space
Wake up to the crisp outdoor air amidst the trees! Hike our nearby trail along the creek or drive 4 miles to the top of Mount Pisgah and enjoy some of the best hikes on the Blue Ridge Parkway! Kick back, build a fire, make some s'mores, play some records, pick up a book and enjoy being in the woods.

Our semi off grid cabin has the luxury of electricity mixed with the delight of still feeling like you're camping! Cell service can be limited (a quick walk up the hill a bit will get you cell service if needed). We provide a comfortable queen size bed, an electric single burner stove top, a mini fridge, a water dispenser for drinking and cooking, coffee maker, a pour over/coffee press option and an outhouse that is emptied weekly. Rinse off using our year around camp solar shower in the outdoor shower space (weather permitting). The glass garage door on the front of the cabin opens to a wooded view and has a bug screen that can be rolled up and down. During the summer there is a mini split air conditioning unit to keep the space cool. During the winter, the mini split heater will keep the cabin warm (*if calling for below freezing temps please bring extra blankets to be sure you stay toasty warm at night)

CORONA VIRUS UPDATE- We are requesting guests bring their own bedding including pillows/queen size sheets/blankets or sleeping bags. We are spraying down all surfaces in the cabins with a bleach solution and taking the necessary precautions to disinfect the cabin. We will have bedding available for your use if you cannot bring your own stored under the bed. We are providing disposable dishes and silverware for during your stay.

We love dogs and know how hard it is to find a place that allows them to come on vacation with you! Potty trained, well behaved dogs of any size are welcome! Bring their crates and beds. They will need to be left in a crate if left indoors without you there.

Our calendar is up to date and open a year in advance. If you can't find the dates you want, check out our other cabins in the area by clicking on our airbnb profile!

Where you’ll be

Upper Hominy, North Carolina, United States

Our gated property backs up to Pisgah National Forest and is situated at the very end of the road. We have 2 other off grid cabins on our 125 acres...but they are all isolated from one another. If you drive 4 miles up to the Blue Ridge Parkway, you will have access to some of the best long range views, hiking and swimming holes in the area. Check for Parkway road closures in the winter...although that's the best time to go hiking up there when no one else is there! Grab a sunset dinner at the Pisgah Inn or drive into Asheville and enjoy the amazing food, music and beer scene!

Catch the Friday night drum circle at Pritchard Park in downtown Asheville, float the French Broad river in the summer, visit the Biltmore house, Tour New Belgium and Sierra Nevada Breweries. Mountain bike in Bent Creek, Mills River and Dupont. Find swimming holes! Go fly fishing. Hike to the top of Mount Pisgah or Black Balsam. Go to the monthly Pun Battle. Ride the Lazoom tour. Hit up Navitat's zip lines. Look up the Downtown After 5 and Riverlink summer music series. Enjoy touring all the breweries. Go on the Riverarts art stroll. Shop on Lexington Avenue and support my favorite places like Tops and LP's. Have drinks on the patio at the Grove Park Inn. Catch the sunset at one of the many roof top bars like Hemmingways.

I was born and raised in Asheville. I lived in California for 10 years to go to school and work a little and then I got smart and moved back home to Asheville to practice dentistry with my father. My fiancé and I love camping, biking, running, working on our farm, playing at the lake, and going on backpacking adventures. We are foodies and have eaten just about everywhere in Asheville so if you need advice on where to go, we are pretty hip to what's good. We have 6 Airbnb rentals. Four of them are off grid glamping cabins on our 125 acre tract of land that backs up to Pisgah National Forest just outside of Asheville. We have another creek side cabin in the same area that is a normal home with a sweet back yard claw foot tub. One rental is at Edisto Beach in South Carolina, which is one of the last non-commercialized beaches left on the coast. I have been told that Airbnb is my hobby and I have to admit that they are right! I love dreaming up ideas for cabins and spaces. It’s been so fun for me to do and I’ve loved getting to see people enjoy our places. Follow us on Insta gram under Pisgah Highlands.
