Easy access (1 minute) off Interstate 26. Enjoy the peaceful backyard setting from a rocking chair on your private porch. Watch our entertaining chickens as you have morning coffee in the bright and cheery breakfast room. Relax in the cozy ambiance of this restored oak log cabin that is fully furnished with all you should need during your stay with us. Staley's Respite guest cabin is located in the back yard of the owner's primary residence. Separate driveway/access. Pets considered / $60 fee.

The space
Relax in a restored oak log cabin with king loft, 1.5 baths (shower/no tub), fully furnished kitchen, breakfast room & den. Enjoy gorgeous sunsets from a rocking chair on your private back porch. Easy (one minute!) I-26 access to make getting around town effortless. Jotul woodstove makes for wonderful Winter evenings around a fire. Enjoy fresh eggs from the backyard chickens, Kangen/alkaline water, & fresh veggies from Summer garden. Unlimited Wifi, Charter cable. Separate entrance & separate parking from hosts in main house. The cabin owners have a friendly golden retriever, a wirehaired pointing griffon, and a 12 year old daughter that play in shared backyard. Mini-splits in den, kitchen, and loft for both heating and air conditioning. The cabin is 1/2 mile off Exit 15 of I-26 which goes straight into Asheville. Easy to get to. 10 minutes to Navitat Canopy Tours (coolest zip lines around!), 10 minutes to French Broad River, 15 minutes to Blue Ridge Parkway, 12 miles to Wolf Laurel Ski Resort and snow tubing, 8 minutes to great restaurants, art, clubs, people-watching, etc... in awesome Asheville, 5 minutes to quaint downtown Weaverville or Mars Hill, location of Mars Hill College. Hiking opportunities all around from 15 minutes away.

We have nice (close proximity) neighbors to the right of our home, nobody on the left that you'll see, and there is a nice neighborhood across the street that has good hills for walking exercise. Jupiter Rd. is a fairly busy county road. Pay attention when exiting the driveway.

We are upgrading to a king sized bed with latex mattress to allow our guests a more spacious and natural-material sleep! Current photos show a queen bed. We will switch out beds (and photos) late April 2020 after our Winter guest departs.

Guest access
Full access to the backyard cabin and backyard portion of owner's yard.

Other things to note
Uber from our cabin to The Orange Peel Music Hall (central downtown Asheville) is on average $23 for UBerX and $38 for UberXL.
Uber from our cabin to the Asheville Airport is on average $37 for Uber X and $61 for Uber XL.

** As of 5/17, we have had several unfortunate accidents with guest's dogs killing our chickens, so we have removed the pet friendly status and will only accept pets with a convincing conversation from pet-owners about your diligence with overseeing your dog in the yard. A $60 pet fee will be added after the booking goes definite. Our chickens are enclosed in fencing but they are visible and tempting to curious dogs, so please be a responsible pet owner when letting Fido play in the yard.

Location

Weaverville, North Carolina, United States

We're located on a county road (Jupiter/Barnardsville Exit) that allows us to feel like we're out in the country to some degree, yet Weaverville is 5 minutes away, and Asheville is 10 minutes away. We have a great neighborhood across the street where we can walk the dog and get some good hill exercise!
