Mountain Cabins in Asheville
There is no better spot than Asheville for taking in the natural and historical sites Western Carolina has to offer, whether it’s a trip down the Nantahala River, world renowned by kayakers and white-water rafting enthusiasts, or a hike out of nearby historic Bryson City into the Smoky Mountain National Forest. Mountain biking, hiking, world-class trout fishing, canoeing, tubing and swimming are a few of the outdoor activities to be explored and enjoyed in the area. The mountains around Asheville comprise one of the most bio-diverse ecosystems in the world and butterfly watching is one of the secret pleasures of the region. Over 175 species can be found in the Western Carolinas, and it is not uncommon in spring to come on clouds of these beautiful creatures sunning themselves in a patch of sunlight alongside a path in the woods.
Whether re-locating, looking for a second home or retirement home or a change of pace within this vibrant city, nothing says Western North Carolina more authentically than Asheville NC cabins. Found both in the city and in the surrounding countryside, this style has been part of the region for centuries, hearkening back to the original settlers of the area. The style still has great appeal in the ubiquitous large-beamed porches, great for taking in the cool mountain air and scenery, and the cozy wood finished interiors. Brought into the 21st century, Asheville NC cabins or Asheville Mountain Homes are now available in everything from rustic to contemporary, and can fit to every individual’s means, taste and purpose.
Planned communities designed around this style of home have full ranges of amenities and conveniences, from pools, parks and play areas to hiking trails, in-ground utilities and fully-paved and maintained roads – all nestled in wooded, natural environments. In keeping with this convenience-in-nature style, homes themselves have everything from wood burning stoves to wet bars, granite counters and stainless steel appliances, all ensconced in warm cabin style. Individual properties in the city and surrounding countryside run the gamut from simple to sophisticated, all in keeping with this inimitable Western Carolina heritage. With acreage, on riverfront or ponds, with mountain views or lawns or nestled in the woods, cabins of all shapes, sizes and levels of investment are available, ready to fit to the needs of any buyer.
From the Biltmore Estate to the Firestorm Cafe, from the Sequoyah National Golf Club to the Great Smoky Mountains, Asheville is a tremendous range of natural beauty, cultural resources and creature comforts. No dwellings reflect this breadth of down-home warmth to eye-catching sophistication more fully than Asheville NC cabins – in the woods, in the mountains, in town or in a planned community. For those thinking of moving to the area, or for those thinking of re-locating within the area, there is a perfect cabin, one that will speak to the individual while wrapping him or her in the great history, culture and nature of the place.
