What if you charged your soul as often as your cell phone? This one is for the artists, nature seekers, and those that want or need to be disconnected from this busy world. Wonder what it would be like to be completely off-grid? Electricity from the sun? Water from a well? A hot shower under the stars?

Soak into the calming sounds of nature, catch your dinner steps away, hike the miles of trails, and enjoy the wildlife on your own piece of 30-acre paradise.


The space
Wake up to the breathtaking, calming river views just steps from the cabin door. Hike around the rock cliffs, hike up to the ridge to watch the sunset over the views, venture along the riverfront, or take a trip just 12 miles to the Blue Ridge Parkway for a serene drive and ample hiking options. Take a quick day to trip Asheville or Boone to visit the breweries, restaurants and hiking, if you ever want to leave!

The cabin has two bunk beds - both have comfortable queen sized beds on the bottom bunk and 2 twin beds on top, a small refrigerator (you may wish to bring a cooler with ice for perishables or for additional items that won't fit in the fridge), outdoor charcoal grill, a flat top grill, propane "camp stove" (outside use ONLY), and a wood stove for heat if you're feeling off-grid. There is no bathroom inside of the cabin, but an "outhouse" 10 feet away. The spa-like, spacious, outdoor HEATED :) shower is just steps away from the river. The hot water is provided by a tankless hot water heater and the well provides the water!

We know you're wondering about the outhouse situation... The restroom/outhouse features a compostable toilet system that is very efficient and easy to use. There is NO SMELL and it is extremely clean. We understand this may be new to you as it is to us, but trust us, being 100% off-grid and engulfed in nature make the worries and conveniences of the modern world drift away. There are very clear instructions on the door.

Top off the night with a nice glass of wine, or roast s'mores on the patio fire pit. At Ace's Place, you will not only enjoy the breathtaking views and the melodies of nature but also unwind to the sound of the North Toe River just steps away from the Cabin. Firewood provided!

There is running water in the cabin and in the shower, and of course river water, but we recommended bringing your own drinking water. The well water is NOT potable.

Ace's Place is equipped with WiFi (Verizon Hotspot) and a TV with streaming services included. But feel free to hide the password and the remote; it is our hope that this provides a much-needed escape from the world and that you will enjoy being off the grid.

We LOVE dogs like family and we know firsthand how hard it is to find a place to vacation with them. Potty trained, well-behaved dogs of any size are welcome! Dogs CANNOT be left unattended in the cabin (for their safety). Please pick up after your dogs as a common courtesy.

Keep in mind this is secluded acreage in the mountains where there WILL BE wildlife of all kinds. We have seen turkeys, deer, raccoons, and neighbors have seen bears and bobcats.

Also, bugs are to be expected! - this is not the Ritz.
