This property is our newest offering for relieving stress by connecting with nature while surrounded by trees, yet staying only 10-20 minutes from many of Asheville’s popular attractions. It is also only 25 minutes from the entrance to Pisgah Forest, land of waterfalls! The Cottage at Sleepy Gap is a great home base for adventurers and romance seekers alike. The house is surrounded by forest so you can soak up your "nature fix", connect with your mind in a quieter state, and unplug. Relax. “Hear” the quiet. Ahh….
We have lovingly renovated and decorated this 1000 square foot cabin that is perched on a hill in the forest on land that borders National Forest of the Blue Ridge Parkway to create a peaceful place to unwind. While away from it all, you can still enjoy modern conveniences such as high speed internet and central heat and air, and rest assured of your comfort in our new king sized bed, drink our filtered water, and know that we use green products to clean the house. Snuggle up in our daybed overlooking the tree canopy and read your favorite book. Explore our path into the woods to our yoga and meditation platform perched by a moss covered boulder. We have paid attention to every detail to make this a dreamy getaway for a romantic escape, or a place to unwind after some adventuous exploration.
Seeking Adventure? The Cabin at Sleepy Gap is conveniently located near adventure destinations such as the Arboretum, Zen Tubing on the French Broad River, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Hard Time Trails for hiking and mountain biking, and just a 20 minute drive to downtown Asheville. The increasingly popular "Disneyland for beer lovers", Sierra Nevada, is only 15 minutes away. Brevard, a mecca for bikers, hikers, Oscar Blues Brewery and waterfall lovers, is just 30 minutes away.
Things to know before you book: While we have a phone land line and high speed internet allowing FaceTime and texting, cell phone service is not reliable here. Also, our driveway is a fairly steep gravel road, so we suggest you have four or all wheel drive to get up the hill easily. We’ve had all kinds of vehicles up here that don’t have those features - it’s just more challenging that way. This is a place for people who enjoy peace and quiet - if it’s nightlife you want, this is not the place for you - we have downtown Asheville places for you guys! This one is for peace and quiet.
