About Tammy Capps

Tammy is from North Carolina and has directed non-profit youth programs and a local AmeriCorps program.

Both Carmen and Tammy work to be good stewards of the land, these mountains and our mother earth: growing our own fruits and vegetables, preserving them for the winter, recycling and composting all garbage,trying to reuse instead of buying new when possible. Efforts are always made to buy local and American made products.

After a great deal of planning and hard work, Carmen and Tammy are excited to invite you for a luxurious, romantic stay in our new cabin!

Tammy Capps purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Tammy Capps chose Asheville Area

Tammy and her ex-partner, Carmen planned and built this cabin with their own two hands, while continuing to work full-time. It took two years! Starting with the goal of building a cabin with a small carbon footprint and utilizing green building techniques the two women started the project. WOW, what a project! A local builder got us off to an amazing start. With lots and lots of hard work and the loving support of our families the cabin was completed in August, 2012.

Why the property? Tammy spent most of her childhood in this area and fell in love with the beauty and majesty of these mountains in the Pisgah National Forest at an early age. When looking to move back to the area and purchase a home in 1991, she would only look at homes in the Candler/Upper Hominy area believing this to be the most beautiful community in the Asheville area. Twenty years ago Tammy began to clear land and landscape the 4-acre property. The project was worth it, as it is now a mountain oasis beyond belief.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin provides all of the modern comforts in a peaceful wooded setting at the base of Mt. Pisgah. The fall and winter views of the mountain through the large glass windows are spectacular. The wooded canopy of oaks, poplar and maple cover the mountain view during the summer months, and provide cool shade for relaxing outside on the deck or patio.

The cabin was built so that passive solar would assist the heating and cooling. In addition, NC made eco panels, rostra block and other sustainable products were used as our building materials making it very well insulated, so it will use very little energy. The tankless water heater and radiant floor heat are also eco-friendly ways to conserve energy while allowing our guests to try out these new 'green' products out for themselves.

The 100 year old oak barnwood posts and inside trim throughout the cabin took several months to pull rusted nails, plane and refinish. The wood was purchased in Candler for $100.

The cabin is centrally located to so many diverse day-trip activities. There is something for everyone here!

Perfect place to get away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I loved our stay here. The cabin was perfect for just the 2 of us to un-plug and un-wind for a few days. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!

Cute cabin in quiet area

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our experience. The cabin was very clean and had everything we needed. It's a great place if you want a quiet and peaceful getaway. It's not overly convenient to stores, Asheville and other areas but it's perfect if you want an escape.

My only slight issue was the driveway. We got stuck and took us several attempts to get out due to the steep slope and muddy areas. I had read that this could be an issue in the winter but didn't realize it would be in the summer as well.

Overall, my husband and I really enjoyed our stay.

Great getaway

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I loved the cabin - the driveway and parking...not so much. It was a great place to get away from the crowds. The parking was difficult to negotiate.

Wonderfully quiet and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful area just far enough from Asheville yet close enough to be a part of everything. Great drives and hikes with fantastic views all close by.

Quaint, Quiet, and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was far away from other people that you never had to see strangers, but close enough to experience the local atmosphere of downtown Asheville. The cabin had everything you would need to cook and some more amazing features beyond that. Would definitely recommend staying here. A perfect place for a romantic retreat.

Map

Car: necessary

Only 16 miles from downtown Asheville our cabin is located beside the Pisgah National Forest.

Hiking trails are abundant only minutes away on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

March to November you can enjoy breakfast at the Pisgah Inn on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

A favorite downtown shopping spot in Asheville, Hendersonville, and Waynseville is Mast General Store.

Our favorite restaurants are the Admiral and Curate', you must make reservations early though.
