Why John Virkler chose Asheville Area

I bought property in Asheville, because the mountains are beautiful and relaxing. It has quite a variety of great restaurants for a small city, lots of golf courses and a lot of adventure for my teenagers.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We thought the cabin was absolutely perfect! We definitely plan to return with friends. It is the perfect distance from town but still being in the mountains. I loved that it had all the amenities so we didn’t have to worry about a single thing on our honeymoon. The large TVs with built in DVD players, having tons of dishes and everything just working great made it so we could just relax and not have to keep running out to look for stuff. Thanks for the perfect cabin!

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with another couple and had a great time. The cabin interior is updated and very homey. The cold weather was great for enjoying the hot tub. We called an Uber to take us into town so we could enjoy the breweries without having to worry about driving. We got an Uber very quickly and it was a pretty cheap ride (less then $15 each way). We also visited the Biltmore another day and that was also very close. Would definitely stay here again!

We had a wonderful honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

We actually didn't get to stay in the Hummingbird Cabin because of some snow difficulties, but our stay in the blue house right up the street was amazing. The place had everything we wanted and we ended up coming at a perfect time to get some snow and also just some beautiful days. They made it very easy for us to enjoy our stay and even when we were late getting out of the cabin they were very kind and understanding. Overall, my wife and I had an amazing experience.

Hummingbird is stellar!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this collection of Asheville cottages - and it continues to be a favorite stop of ours. Hummingbird is an oasis of calm, relaxation, and nature - with lots of upscale amenities and close to Asheville and Black Mountain attractions. Wonderful beds, sofas, dining equipment, free coffee, showers, hot tub, and places to sit and relax outside - adjacent trails to hike on the combined properties. Only disappointment was that no bear waddled by as we were eating our breakfast - as happened on our last visit!

HUMMINGBIRD, GREAT STAY!

  • 5 of 5

My bachelorette weekend took place in Asheville, and we decided to stay here at the Hummingbird Cabin. This cabin was beautiful, convenient to downtown and the Biltmore house, and had plenty of room (which says a lot since there were 8 girls in one cabin). Can't wait to come back and stay here again!
