Cabins and Vacation Home Rentals
Live like a local with a short-term rental in Asheville. Whether you want a cabin in the woods, a mountaintop retreat or maybe a condo in downtown Asheville, you'll find it!
But there's one thing to keep in mind with short-term rentals-- city laws prohibit whole homes from being rented on a short-term basis within city limits (excluding certain zones.) So, you are more likely to find a short rental a bit outside of town or a homestay in town where the owner rents out a room or two. That's not to say there aren't short-term rentals available on sites like AirBNB, but some may not be quite following the rules...
Cabins are my preferred way to stay in a mountain town! While you'll have a bit of a drive to get to the downtown Asheville area, you can't beat the morning views. Even a rainy day in Asheville is infinitely better from a cabin than a hotel room.
As far as what part of the area you should look for cabins, we recommend checking around the Black Mountain area or north of Asheville near Mars Hill. You could also look for cabins in Candler (west of Asheville). One of our favorite barbeque restaurants is in Candler-- Doc Brown's BBQ.
Lake Lure is also a beautiful area. You'll have about a 45 minute drive to Asheville from there, but it's a gorgeous and relaxing setting for a getaway. Check out our Lake Lure day trip itinerary here that includes a hike on the Bearwallow Mountain Trail.
Campgrounds & RV Parks
The Asheville area has a ton of great campgrounds and RV Parks close by. Whether you are looking to rough it in a tent, go glamping in a family-friendly dome or park your RV for a while, you'll find a place for you in Asheville.
We'll do a deep dive on this one day but wanted to mention a few good options for each to get it started.
As far as camping goes, the Lake Powhatan Recreation Area & Campground borders the 6,000-acre Bent Creek Experimental Forest and is a great place to stay. There are campsites for both tents and RVs and they also offer glamping. We love the hike around Lake Powhatan which is easily accessible via the campground. The campground is only 20 minutes from downtown Asheville and is near the NC Arboretum.
For RV parks, there are a few on the river (Wilson’s Riverfront RV Park, French Broad River Campground) and some that are just off the interstate (Bear Creek RV Park off I-40 and Wilson’s Riverfront RV Park off I-240 near Carrier Park.)
And lastly, hostels are a great way to visit Asheville on a budget. Two that we know of are Sweet Peas Hostel located downtown near High Five Coffee and Bon Paul & Sharky's Hostel in West Asheville. Both are in great locations!
