Capture the Sunset. Make memories! Relax on the deck with a drink and your loved ones while watching absolutely stunning sunsets over the beautiful Appalachian mountains. Spend your vacation in this spacious house on the side of Sunset Mountain, overlooking Asheville. We are 3 minutes from Asheville, 10 minutes from The Biltmore Estate, 4 minutes from The Grove Park Inn and all that Asheville has to offer.

One cannot find a more convenient location in the Asheville area.

This home will accommodate a large party without feeling cramped. It has an abundance of off-street parking, is very private (yet close) and is located on the original carriage road from Grove Park Inn to the Seely Castle. Seely Castle is just across the street and is the castle that Fred Seely (E.W. Grove's son-in-law) built after he finished construction

on the Grove Park Inn.

(king bed in upper and queen bed in lower) both with separate entrances, fireplaces (gas in main level and wood burning in lower) in both master bedrooms, 2 additional bedrooms (queen bed in both ), a private office, workout room with weight equipment, an 8 person hot tub, a spectacular sun room (great for swinging and reading), an attached garage, a very large fully equipped kitchen and remarkable western views of sunsets and Mt Pisgah.

We are pet friendly (with responsible owners - fees based on size) and have a fenced dog run. There are large decks on several levels with an outdoor gas grill (on the main floor level deck).

Washer/dryer, linens furnished, flat screen TV and DVD in livingroom, TV's in bedrooms with cable, phone and Wi-Fi internet.

There is an abundance of off street parking for many vehicles and decks and gardens that go on forever.

The North Carolina region

Located 1.3 miles (5 minutes or less) from downtown and on the same road as Grove Park Inn.

We are 10 minutes from Biltmore, 10 minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway and on Sunset Mountain with a westerly view. The cabin is on over an acre of property and there is an easement between us and the closest house. It is a quiet, private neighborhood with no really close neighbors. The cabin is located within the city limits so we have public water, sewer and priority street maintenance.

This makes it ideal for a vacation house!
