Description of the Asheville vacation cabin rental
Riverview Retreat at Riverside Escapes! A beautiful new log cabin located directly on Section 8 of the French Broad River just north of the city of Asheville awaits you. Fully appointed two story cabin with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths and lots of special custom touches. The cozy great room is warmed by a river decor centered around a river rock gas fireplace and opening onto a huge deck with a bubbling hot tub overlooking the river. The huge second floor 'treetop' master suite features a private balcony overlooking the river, a king size bed with copper covered bedside tables, walk in closet with stacking washer/dryer, a private coffee station, and magnificent river views! The main floor bedroom and bath offer easy access and a fun river fishing theme. Bathroom luxuries include custom tile showers and granite sinks. The campus offers free WIFI internet access so you can sit by the campfire or lay on the hammock and check your email!
This beautiful cabin sits on a four acre riverfront parcel with a private footbridge and a private island. You're invited to fish the French Broad and cook your own catch on a firepit grill, or just sit in the Adirondack chairs and watch the blue herons fish. Bring your bike and enjoy the level ride along historic Old Marshall Highway. Catch some rays on your private deck. Spend evenings by the campfire toasting s'mores and listening to the wildlife serenade as the sun sets into the mountains. After sunset, watch the fireflies light up the mountainside across the river. Day trip to kayak, whitewater raft, tube the river, hike or horseback ride. Explore history with a visit to the Biltmore Estate, Grove Arcade, historic downtown Asheville or the Vance Birthplace. Drive the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway and have lunch on top of Mount Pisgah.
This is the only property on the French Broad River with an accessible private island. Yet, we're located just 15 minutes from Asheville city limits, 10 minutes from Weaverville, and a few minutes south of the historic town of Marshall. Riverside Escapes lodging and grounds are also available for weddings and other special events.
*Note; while we love pets, this is a pet free cabin.
**3 night minimum rental unless within 7 days of check-in, then 2 nights will be considered

Area Information
Riverside Escapes offers the only island vacation rental in the area and one of just a few riverfront homes. Guests are encouraged to walk the swinging bridge, fish from the shores, sit by the riverside campfire, and generally immerse themselves in the incredible natural beauty of the property. There is something for everyone here. For the more adventurous type, our island cabin offers the feel of remote camping, but none of the hassles. For those seeking more luxury, our mainland cabin has all the comforts of home and more with a hot tub, custom tile showers, coffee bar, wireless internet access, and more.
The French Broad River is a spectacular river meandering through a spectacular town. 'Broad' is a descriptive name for this large, majestic river which is largely unspoiled by development. Yet, just down river, Asheville offers all of the excitement, arts, fine dining, nightlife, and eclectic culture that anyone could seek. The Blue Ridge Parkway, Appalachian Trail and so many other natural gifts are just a short drive away. Madison County offers some of the beautiful whitewater rafting locations, unspoiled mountain land, and even snow skiing in Wolf Laurel. Our location is ideally located just north of Asheville and south of Madison County. It is truly the best of both worlds.
