Property Details

Updated: May 22, 2015
Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Beautiful views and rolling hills, Cabin Cove Farm is owner operated and located right on the edge of Asheville's city limits in it's farm community, Leicester. Elegantly situated on 5 acres abound with wonderful county smells and sites, Sharon and Tyler have been renting their cabin to vacationers for 14 years and have a thorough understanding of how to help make your vacation the one to remember! Though it feels like you are in the country, you are only 15 minutes from downtown Asheville. It is midpoint between Asheville, Waynesville, Hendersonville, and Maggie Valley. It is in an ideal location to see the entire mountain area.

The vacation rental cabin on the farm is a modern day hand-hewn hemlock log home that gives you the feel of the rustic yet allows you the amenities of modern life. It sleeps 6 adults comfortably. There is a sofa bed in the master bedroom so adding two small children to the group is possible to allow up to 8 guests.

The cabin is on a llama, Alpaca, and goat farm on 5 acres. The animals are like pets to us so they enjoy interacting with our human guests. No interaction is allowed between our guest pets and our farm animals. Our guest pets have lots of room to run, we have a 3/4 acre fenced in yard for them to run free in. We also have a swingset for the 2 legged young ones. There is a game table in the basement for those rainy days. In the basement is also a craft corner that is fully stocked with craft supplies for the young ones to express their creativity. Sharon teaches craft classes to the guests in our cabin on request and for a fee. You can also schedule a Reiki treatment. Obtain fresh organic eggs from the chickens on the farm; Gloria, Josephine, Rosemary, and Penelope.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Sharon & Tyler,

Thank you for sharing your cabin & farm with us. We loved the goats, alpacas & llamas. We also loved the evening serenades from the frogs & the firefly light show. Thank you for making us feel so welcome.

Amazing Month!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you so much to Sharon & Tyler for opening their home and sharing their farm with us. We stayed for a full month and would have loved to stay longer. Sharon & Tyler are gracious and wonderful hosts and the animals on the farm are sweet and welcoming as well. Sharon taught me more about fiber and how to felt so that I can develop a new venue for my love of fiber. This cabin is perfect because you are in the country but only a short drive to enjoy all the wonderful restaurants and galleries that Asheville has to offer. It is the perfect mix for those of you who want to relax, experience the area and just take time out to enjoy life! I'm hoping to be there again next year for even longer! Thanks again!!! Sue & Tim, and the furry gang.

wonderful family getaway

We had an amazing time at Cabin Cove! So much so that we are already planning a possible family trip with extended family members. The house was beautiful and animals were quite friendly.

From the Owner

Cabin Cove Farm is magical. Most everyone who comes to stay with us find it quiet, refreshing, comfortable, rejuvenating. There is lots to do here on rainey or snowy days, or even sunny ones. There are the animals to love on, crafts if one wants to, hills to climb for exercise, gameroom in the basement to keep kids - big or small occupied, hot tub to bask in under the stars, hills to sled down in the snow, and the list just keeps going on depending on your imagination. Or you can just snuggle up with a hot chocolate or coffee or beverage in front of the fire in the fireplace and just stay home.
