Description

Built in 1947, this unique log home offers a perfect spot for a restful retreat from the noise and hustle of daily life. Arrive by the long, mysterious drive way (drive slowly) and wander the acres of green, sloping lawn and orchard. With proper gear and a good sense of direction, enjoy a short walk in the woods. From the deck watch bunnies run across the grass or gaze out to the mountains. Curl up with a good book. On a clear night, watch for falling stars far from the light pollution of the city. Black Mountain, Asheville and the Blue Ridge Parkway are only minutes away. Camp Rockmont (site of the LEAF Festival) is only a few hundred feet. This property abounds with quiet, privacy and character

Notes: 4 x 4 is not required; please, drive in and out slowly. The last part of the driveway ascends slightly. At points, vehicles with low clearance may scrape bottom. The entrance to Camp Rockmont is a few hundred feet beyond our driveway. For star-gazing or other outside activities, please do not use linens from inside the house. Food should NOT be left outside.

Carrie's Escape includes:
WiFi, Roku TV, gas grill. outdoor fire pit

Carrie's Place is a very comfortable cottage conveniently located between Black Mountain and Asheville. Great views and quiet at night.

Awesome stay! We're definitely coming back!

The property was clean, well maintained, and surprisingly well stocked. Beds we're made, towels were laid out, there were great instructions everywhere on how to use things, and there was even some bread for us to eat. Our kids loved the swing in the front yard, and we loved the yard and mountain views from the kitchen table. We were really impressed with Greybeard Rentals and we'll use them for all future mountain vacations.

Quiet, bucolic setting with great access to local attractions

We enjoyed being in North Carolina the last week of March. We were able to go and do all the things we had planned: disc golfing, hiking, visit to Arboretum, driving the Blue Ridge Parkway, visit to Cowpens, SC, meals & walks in Asheville, going up the highest peak east of the Mississippi.

6 girls stayed here for a weekend getaway. The house was perfect for all of us. It was clean and there was plenty of room for all of us comfortably. The house was difficult to find, but that was partially because we were arriving late at night. The neighbor was kind enough to point us in the right direction. Our one complaint (and this doesn't really pertain to the house) is that there are no ubers or lyfts in the area. We had to drive a few miles out to a Walmart to get an Uber to get to Downtown Asheville.
Manager response - Response from Greybeard Rentals
I'm glad you had a great weekend getaway at Carrie's Escape! Sorry to hear about the trouble finding the home - we generally recommend that guests arrive to any of our rentals during daylight hours as navigation can be difficult in the mountains at night. Sorry about your trouble with Uber and Lyft access. Both do service Black Mountain to downtown Asheville on a regular basis, so I'm not sure why none were available. Come back again soon!

Best holiday ever!

My husband, sons (21, 18) enjoyed the best family Christmas vacation ever! CE was the perfect setting—beautifully rustic, clean, extremely comfortable. We enjoyed warmth of wood stove, playing games, napping/reading comfy furniture. Outside we grilled hotdogs, made somores on the fire pit on deck, took long walks in the beautiful woods, and traveled to downtown Black Mountain and notable nature trails. In winter, you can observe houses and private spaces where families with low wealth make their home. However, this did not make me feel uncomfortable or unsafe. I was happy my sons observed how many families live in contrast to our urban setting. CE is secluded from view of others with open fields, woods, pasture close by, and open/dark space in which to observe the stars.

I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at Carrie's Escape! It's a great home with a lot of privacy. So glad you enjoyed the stargazing and time outside as well!

We stayed here over Thanksgiving. The kitchen was very well stocked for cooking anything. There were basic spices available also. We brought some of our own pans, but did not need them. Our only complaint was the wi-fi/internet seemed to cut out at times, but it did not stop my college age kids from being on their phones. A discount card to the local supermarket was available and was an unexpected bonus. That saved us a few dollars.
Manager response - Response from Greybeard Rentals
I'm glad you enjoyed the stay! I've relayed your note about the wifi to maintenance so we can look into it. Sounds like a great time!

We had a lovely stay at this charming log cabin! It was the perfect combination of a rustic escape in the mountains with all the amenities of home. The property was beautiful and our boys loved playing in the large yard. The cabin was tastefully furnished, clean and comfortable (other than than a few visiting bugs and spiders). The location was convenient and felt like a remote escape in the woods while being only 15-20 minutes from Asheville.

We come here every year, and every year we love it! Such a nice, cozy cabin, but also plenty space to spread out if you like. The kids (and adults) loved the new swing! We like how private it is but still close enough to Black Mountain and Montreat. Everything was clean, the kitchen was well stocked.

Very clean cabin, with plenty of space for the 4 of us. 6 would be comfortable, too. Surrounded by a very large well maintained yard and trees to afford privacy. The neighborhood area outside of this space is poor and rundown, but you don't notice that when at the cabin. If you are a snob, you wouldn't like it. Recommend a GPS to get places. Close to Asheville. I liked the old-time feel to the place. Reminds me of a cabin my parents would have built and furnished. Would like to stay here again. Management friendly and helpful. Loved the Brazilian restaurant in Asheville. We spent all of Saturday at Biltmore Estate. Hiked in the mountains another day. We stayed just 2 nights, but wish we had stayed a week, there is so much to do and see. Loved the quiet, country atmosphere. I would stay here again.

I'm glad that you had a good stay! I hope the road didn't put too much of a damper on the vacation. Thanks for staying with Greybeard!

This is our second year staying in this cabin and we have been so happy with our stay both times. It has a cozy feel but is also spacious for our three families. We enjoyed hiking in the woods and walking around Black Mountain. The Dynamite coffee shop is close by and a great option for good coffee and a relaxing atmosphere. The grounds are also nice for playing outside. The kids enjoyed collecting pine cones and going on "expeditions" in the woods. In the evening we enjoyed reading and doing puzzles by the wood stove. We will be back next year for sure!
