Nestled along Shope Creek bordering the Pisgah National Forest, this cabin rental in North Carolina is immersed within the verdant forests of the Blue Ridge mountains but within a short drive into Asheville’s vibrant downtown scene.
Designed and built by an Asheville based couple, the simple design is well adapted to the wooded landscape with rustic clapboard and industrial style metal cladding and a back to basics silhouette.
The two story open plan interiors combine living and dining areas with a fully equipped kitchen. There is a bright and cozy master suite for two and a loft space ideal for kids accessed via a ladder.
Relax and dine alfresco on the expansive covered terrace with a roaring fire, or take a dip in the hot tub under the stars.
There’s a fire pit for cookouts or s’mores roasts, hammocks for lazy naps under the trees, and benches along the creek for enjoying the mountain views.

Loaded with character, downtown Asheville is home to the vibrant River Arts district filled with galleries and museums, historic architecture and iconic landmarks with an ever expanding culinary and microbrew scene. Stylish and a bit trendy, at it’s heart, Asheville is still a mountain town spawned from very traditional roots. It’s location next to the famous Blue Ridge mountains lends the city a gorgeous natural backdrop with vast areas to explore including nearby Pisgah National Forest and Chimney Rock State Park. For winter sport, you are within a forty minute drive to Wolf Ridge and Cataloochee ski areas.
And of course the crown jewel of the area is the stunning and vast 19th-century Biltmore estate built by George Vanderbilt. Considered the largest private home ever built in the US, it’s a Gilded Age gem of over 250 rooms on over 8000 acres with a magnificent collection of artwork by masters like Renoir.
