Welcome to Abner's Cabin! Come stay with us at our quaint and charming 1928 cabin and enjoy some good old Southern Appalachian hospitality. Situated on two private acres less than 10 minutes from downtown Asheville.

As its largest city, along with its central location in the southern Appalachian mountains, Asheville has become the nerve center of the area simply known as 'WNC' (Western North Carolina). Set in the beautiful French Broad Valley, which flows northwest to the Mississippi basin, Asheville is surrounded by the highest mountains in eastern America, some of the oldest in the world.

The temperate climate enjoys four distinct seasons, with comfortable summers, mild winters, early spring and panoramic fall colors. The geographic features, combined with the climate, allows the area an abundance of outdoor activities from hiking to fishing to skiing and golf. A vibrant downtown Asheville offers a cultural diversity hard to find anywhere else in the US. Asheville attracts internationally known artists and is home to artists of world renown in every genre. Shops, antiques, artist's studios and restaurants, from local grills to fine dining, are all a part of what makes Asheville unique.

So...just here for a few days or for a little while longer? Remember, a whole lot of nothing to do is fine and relaxing too! Almost anything you would want to do is here or nearby (ok, there's no ocean, check out VRBO for that, y'know?). Situated between the Smokies and the Blue Ridge, Asheville makes a great home base. From Boone to Brasstown, Mt. Pisgah to Mt. Mitchell, you can get there from Abner's Cabin.

Come stay with us and see why we think our southern mountains are one of the most beautiful places in the country to visit.

“Appropriately described”

Reviewed 20 Aug 2016

Cabin is very clean and certainly had adequate amenities. Nothing fancy. Although it had 2 bedrooms and a sleep sofa I think that more than 4 people would be very crowded.It is 7 miles from downtown Asheville so once we returned to the cabin after a day of sight seeing we seldom left. Did not find any good walking trails around the property so primarily walked our dog in the long driveway. Enjoyed the horses and the scenery from the back deck. And of course the wonderful mountain air. I would recommend it to someone who enjoys camping.

“Awesome Stay”

Reviewed 1 Jun 2015

My sister, her husband, my husband and I stayed for a long week end and had a wonderful time. The cabin was just what we wanted, nothing fancy, just quaint with almost everything we needed. We ate dinner outside the first night (we put the kitchen table on the driveway) and went into Asheville the second. The weather was wonderful so we were able to walk along the French Broad Saturday. One of us forgot a shirt so Saturday afternoon we went into Woodfin (?) and did some shopping. Then back to the cabin for afternoon relaxation followed by drinks and munchies. We still had plenty of time to go to downtown Asheville (only 10 minutes at the most) for dinner and entertainment. This weekend offered a little bit of everything and it was awesome!

Response from the owner Ellen, Thank you for the kind words about our sweet cabin. Yes, it is not fancy and brand new but as you said it is quaint and comfortable. Just what one should expect from a nearly 100 year old mountain cabin. We hope that you keep us in mind for future stays in the area. Leslie

“Awesome Getaway”

Reviewed 5 Jan 2014

Abner's cabin was exactly what we were looking for during our asheville a area vacation. Situated between asheville and Weaverville the location was convenient. The bed was comfortable and the amenities were nice.

“Relaxing and Quiet Rustic Cabin with modern conveniences”

Reviewed 20 Nov 2013

Very quiet and relaxing visit in this rustic cabin with modern conveniences. The cabin had a very homey atmosphere with great amenities. The location was in the country, yet close to asheville for our visit to the Biltmore Estate and close to the Blue Ridge Parkway to view the changing leaves. We were able to bring our dogs, who loved it too. Mostly, we enjoyed sitting in the rocking chairs on the front porch and relaxing.
