Turn down a private road & check in to the handmade modern tiny house w/direct water access to the river and short paddle to Lake James. Floor to ceiling windows,gas stove, separate bedroom and bathroom. A fire to decompress after a day of hiking or just listening to nature. 20m to Black Mountain, 36 miles to Asheville. 5 mile drive to Marion for whatever you need. No WiFi/cableTV. 3 sit top kayaks and 1 paddleboard for guest use until broken by guests.

The space
leave the insanity. The house is very comfortable and modern with a cabin feel. It has a gas stove. Separate bedroom with nice queen mattress. Bedroom has tv with a dvd player, no cable. Perfect for adventure seekers who want to truly experience tiny living in the woods. A couch that folds down into a bed and a teeny tiny sleeping loft that has a firm full sized mattress. The tiny is in a serene tree covered private lot close to Marion. Marion is a quaint historic town with a motto of "Where the mountains meet main street". There are endless hikes and waterfalls to explore. You can boat on Lake James, paddle down the Catawba or build a fire and make some smores. There isn't wifi and cell service is spotty depending on your carrier. This is meant for folks trying to get away and detach. You will leave recharged. Two public boat docks within five miles and plenty of space to park your boat. If you want to take a break from it all and connect with nature in a very unique, comfortable way, then this is it.

Where you’ll be

Marion, North Carolina, United States

The river is peaceful to sit by with the firepits roaring. There are two firepits on the 1.6 acre property available for use. BYOW (bring your own wood or collect it). The town of Marion is 3.4 miles away with some great restaurants and local shops if you get sick of the woods.

Home base: Charlotte. Airbnb host/avid guest since 2011. Live for traveling, meeting new people, experiencing local culture and laughing. I tend to lean towards airbnbs in unique setups in great places that are affordable. I get recommendations from my hosts and share my favorite neighborhood spots with my guests because I think it is more fun to experience local life wherever you go. Isn’t that the point of travel?
Motto: TRAVEL NOW the future is promised to no one. You will NEVER regret it!
