The cabin is definitely cozy (read: small, about 15 by 20 feet) but charming and unique and full of old timely character balanced by the right modern amenities (fans, flashlights, electric kettle, etc). Just don't expect much in the way of cooking facilities, and do expect a short walk to bathhouse/running water. Great getaway spot for a couple. Ben was great, flexible, helpful, discreet.

Beautiful spot, easy drive to Asheville. Perfect little escape if you want to hang around, or if you want to only sleep there. Short walk to the bathroom which is very nice as the photos show. Chickens were pretty quiet and although we didn't take advantage of taking some eggs, it was a cool offer to have! Would definitely stay again!

This place was amazing!!! I can't say that enough! Ben was great about communicating and letting know the ins and outs of Asheville! He answered all out questions. And we even got fresh eggs out of it! Can't beat it. We will be back!

Ben was very accommodating and attentive. The cabin itself was close enough to Asheville but away from the city, comfortable for the two of us. Quaint and homey is how I would describe it. The bathroom is a separate structure from the cabin, short little walk away but good to know. They have chickens and Ben was kind enough to share their eggs. That was a nice touch.

After a busy week of work with a friend, this relaxing place was absolutely perfect for us! It was nicely secluded, but not too far away from anything we needed. Ben & Will were amazing hosts. Ben stayed in contact throughout the stay, but still left us to do our own thing, and even left us some fresh eggs from their chickens for breakfast. This quaint little cabin had everything we could have ever needed, and a bunch of cute little touches that really made it feel like my own home. Next time I'm in the area, this will be my go-to stay!

I had an amazing stay at Ben's cabin. His property is gorgeous and the cabin is even better than it looks in the picture. The bathroom is separate from the cabin, but a short stop away and very clean and modern. Ben is highly communicative and offered restaurant suggestions for Asheville. Ben's place would be perfect if you're looking for a solo or romantic getaway!
