This wood-cabin style school bus conversion is a beautiful space to spend a weekend (or longer) in the Blue Ridge Mountains, just a 15-20 minute drive from downtown Asheville NC. The bus is located on a 1 acre homestead and micro-farm, with ducks , chickens, bees and plenty of fruit, vegetables and mushrooms growing at various times throughout the year. Whether you want romantic or cozy or a fun get away with the family, this bus will add a little extra special to your trip.

The space
This school bus conversion is insulated with sheeps wool and finsihed with sustainably harvested lumber from New York pines. On the outside it looks just like a school bus, but once you step inside it feels like a log cabin complete with wood burning stove.

Guest access
The homestead / microfarm has a main house with a family of four living year round. The bus shares a driveway with the main house, but is at the back of the property in it's own seperate area. You'll have full and private access to the bus.

Other things to note
Note: This property does not have wheelchair access, you ascend the steps of the school bus to enter.

Note: The maximum floor to ceiling height is 5 feet and 11 inches, with a gradual slope to either side of the bus. We have had tall people stay and not be bothered by this, but please be aware that you'll be very close to the ceiling if you are much above 5'9". We consider this fair warning for tall people.

Note: The shower until is VERY small. It's functional and the water is warm, but it's very much a TINY HOUSE SHOWER!! Please see pictures for context.

Location

Leicester, North Carolina, United States

We are based in Leicester NC, which is pretty rural despite our close proximity to Asheville. We live two doors down from the library and are actually working with them to install a Leicester Library Giving Garden. Behind the property is the Community Volunteer Fire Station on a large piece of county land. We have neighbors but it is generally quite, especially at the back of the property where the bus is located!
