Quirky Luxury: Unique, Eco-Friendly Vacation Cabins in Asheville

Sometimes shaking off the routine and ordinary parts of your life will allow you to discover your playful, worry-free self. A change in perspective can provide renewed energy and reinvigorate your cheerful spirit. And what better way to start fresh than with a vacation getaway? Carolina Mornings has a handful of unique, eco-friendly vacation rental cabins that will help you kick off the new year right by directing your vision down a new path.

Find Yourself at Amethyst Creek Cottage

Does the idea of a round cottage decorated in funky, yet tasteful, modern furnishings sound interesting? Nestled in a little clearing in the woods, Amethyst Creek Cottage is so much more than you might expect, with its wrap-around deck and inspirational touches, like the view from the Tempurpedic king-sized bed. If you need some serenity, maybe to meditate or start a personal project, this the destination that will satisfy your quest for soul searching. (Plus there's wifi if you need to stay connected.) Eco-Friendly features at Amethyst Creek Cottage include recycling, low flow toilet, Energy Star appliances, low-VOC paint, fresh and tightly sealed weather stripping, eco-friendly cleaning products, energy efficient doors and windows, and recycled paper products.

Inspirational Escape

Ever fantasize about walking off into the woods and discovering a really authentic mountain log cabin? A stay at Momma Bear isn't exactly roughing it (there's DirectTV and a modern fully-equipped kitchen), but it is an authentic 1880's log cabin with hand-hewn logs and antique decorating, including a sturdy iron bed and cozy patchwork quilts. Build a roaring fire in the fireplace and settle in for a stay in a true winter wonderland! The mountain views at Momma Bear are extraordinary! Eco Friendly features at Momma Bear include recycling, reclaimed materials (framing, insulation, fixtures), recycled materials, and re-purposed hardwood floors.

If you're in need of total escape from the modern world to give you a chance to decompress, Slow Living Cottage is the perfect spot for you. This wilderness paradise is only 15 minutes from downtown Asheville, and yet you'll feel like you're a million miles out. A real treat for bird watchers, Slow Living Cottage has many special touches that give it that quirky luxury, like the fire circle next to the hot tub and the bedside window seat where you can watch your troubles drift away.
