Brand new log cabin cottage in the heart of Apple Country! Located 15 minutes from downtown Hendersonville and 25 minutes from Asheville. This cozy cabin sits about half-way up Banks Mountain with beautiful views and peaceful nature surroundings.
Adanvdo (Cherokee for "heart" or "spirit") was built out of an inspiration to share the beautiful mountain on which I live. Built with the "tiny home" concept in mind, it provides everything one could want in a cabin while only taking up a 300 sq. footprint. There is a custom-made Murphy bed with a queen Casper mattress for great sleeping, and a loft with a double mattress for children or an extra guest. A small closet with hanging bar sits beside the murphy bed. All bed and bathroom linens are provided. An additional loft sits above the front porch where you can store your luggage and other gear. The cabin is furnished and decorated for comfort, warmth, and charm. For those with chemical sensitivities, I clean and wash linens with Norwex products which are chemical and scent-free.
There is a fully furnished kitchen with a 5 cu. ft. refrigerator (bigger than your typical hotel refrigerator), a 2 burner ceramic stove, and a toaster/convection oven. A new gas grill sits on the back deck to give you more cooking options. There is a 3 seat bar in the kitchen area for eating and food preparation. I keep the kitchen stocked with some condiments, teas, and coffee. All you need is a bag of groceries!
A flat screen TV is mounted in the kitchen area on a swivel arm for easy viewing from the living area or the kitchen bar. I don't have cable TV here on the mountain, so I have provided a DVD collection for movie time.
Step outside of the French Doors onto the back deck with access to a hot tub, nice rockers to soak in the view, a gas grill for a BBQ, and a fire pit area below the deck with a beautiful hand-made log bench.
My home is next door, but I am a quiet person (who works) and you will be given the utmost privacy.
I have recently rescued a Beagle/Walker mix dog who is very friendly but cannot go outside of my yard due to an invisible fence. If you wish to pet him, please come all the way onto my sidewalk and he will be happy to give you some kisses :) He is only out when I'm home.
Accès des voyageurs
The cabin sits on my property and you are free to explore this quiet mountain neighborhood which has a road you can walk to the top of the mountain. There are a few permanent residents and other vacation homes, but all spread apart to give you a feeling of seclusion.
Échanges avec les voyageurs
I can be available to give you suggestions on hikes, attractions, and great restaurants around the area, or I can give you total privacy. I work part-time but am always available by phone/text.
Check-in is after 3PM on the day of your arrival, and check-out is by 11AM on the day of your departure. Your parking space is directly in front of the cabin.
NO smoking allowed inside and NO pets allowed. I have a cat who wanders the property but I am keeping the cabin pet-free for those who have allergies. Fires can be made in the fire-pit after checking with me for instructions and fire hazard conditions. Please take good care of the cabin so others may enjoy it as well. If you have any special requests, just let me know.
I'm an avid outdoor person who loves hiking, gardening, and traveling. I lived in Thailand for a year teaching English and was able to travel around SE Asia. My favorite destination was Bali, Indonesia where I was able to stay for a couple of months.
I have a private practice as a massage therapist in Hendersonville, NC. The work I do is called Myofascial Release Therapy and I enjoy my work and my clients.
I love to meet new people and other travelers. This is one of the reasons I decided to become a host on Airbnb. I like to help people make the most of their trip and give them tips for exploring the area if they need it. At the same time, I can give my guests complete privacy if this is what they prefer. I make an effort to communicate this with my guests when they book so everyone is comfortable.
