About Tammy Capps

Tammy is from North Carolina and has directed non-profit youth programs and a local AmeriCorps program. She is currently starting a new business called Senior Care Management of WNC.

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!

Beautiful views and adorable cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our experience here. The views are beautiful and the cabin is so cute. We will definitely be returning in the future. Loved sitting in the hot tub and looking at the stars. The cabin has such rustic charm and had everything we needed. Any questions we had during our stay were promptly answered by Tammy, she was delightful to rent from and takes pride in her property and it shows.

Perfect autumn getaway in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

A perfect getaway in a dreamy cabin! The cabin was perfect for two people. We wandered into Asheville for a day but we really enjoyed just hanging out at the cabin with our dog! All you need is your clothes and any food you may want to bring. The cabin is clean and fully stocked. Thanks for allowing us to use the cabin for a fall getaway. We hope to be back!

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.
