About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Appalachia at its best. A mountain cabin re-created within the basement (first floor, ground level) of my home for your pleasure. Private entrance(s), covered deck/patio, open deck, great view, very private setting.

The location has an East-West orientation, with beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Great place to sit, relax, and enjoy your favorite beverage.

The cabin is fully self contained. It has its own kitchen, bath with shower (no tub), and a small living/dining area. One bedroom with a king size bed.

Centrally located between I-40 and I-26, on Busbee Mountain, the property borders the Biltmore Estate and blends in with the Blue Ridge Parkway at an elevation of 3,346 feet.

Well behaved pets are more than welcome!

Easy booking online or with the owner using check or credit cards.

About George Stanley

I am retired. I enjoy my two cats, Olly and Geo.

I retired from the Community College System and enjoy meeting people, thus the rental.

I enjoy traveling and finding neat places. I hope I have created one here.

George Stanley purchased this apartment in 2007

Why George Stanley chose Asheville

I had a half -finished basement when I purchased the home, which I separated from the house upstairs. I envisioned a downstairs cabin so others could enjoy the beautiful mountains as I do.

What makes this apartment unique

Living on a rural mountain and bordering the Biltmore Estate Property, there is an abundance of wildlife - turkey, deer, pheasants, bear, raccoons, generally all sorts of wildlife. I have pictures of bear in the yard and in close-by trees.

At an elevation of 3,346 feet, the cabin overlooks a huge valley. The valley is often filled with fog, creating a beautiful sunrise at eye-level.

Fantastic get away retreat

  • 5 of 5

Loved our cozy cabin. It was exactly as advertised and well off the beaten path. If that is what you are looking for, this is the place to stay. George was extremely hospitable and gave us all the space we needed. We had ice the night before we were to leave and George offered us plenty of options including putting our vehicle at the bottom of the hill. Since no one was due to come in the day we were leaving, we decided to ride it out in the cabin which he was fine with. Incredible views, even in winter. Now that we've done a winter stay, we'll be planning one for the other seasons. Thanks, George.

Great

Lovely rustic cabin. George was the perfect host and we really enjoyed meeting him. Busbee Mountain Road is not for the faint of heart but don’t let it deter staying there!

The pictures and description did not come close to conveying the extraordinary beauty of this spot.

  • 5 of 5

I called our host as we were approaching the property and we were met by George as we pulled into the custom parking spot. He had turned on the lights and the apartment was warm. It was the perfect place to bring my friend visiting from Sweden because we were quite literally amidst the mountains with amazing sunsets and vistas of 360 degrees. The cabin was equipped with everything we needed and two nights were barely enough to begin relaxing. Part of the charm was learning from our host how he had found and then built this home and B&B.

Fabulous Mountaintop Cabin with Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

My family and I made a quick trip to Asheville to visit Biltmore. I wanted to be able to see the beautiful fall foliage from my rental and this house did not disappoint. The views are breathtaking! George is a kind and wonderful host. His cabin contained everything we needed, including a full kitchen. My only regret is that we did not stay longer. We will definitely visit again!
