Those guests with fishing license can request fishing rods with their cabins. The most popular species covered on this site are the Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout, Brook Trout, Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Muskie, Catfish, Crappie, and several species of Pan fish. Those guests who would enjoy kayaking can call me to take them upriver with the equipment for a fun trip back to the cabins. Of course if you are not into fishing or boating you can still enjoy the river just setting on the deck of a cabin or one of our lawn chairs next the river banks and watch the geese, ducks, and blue heron play and feed in the river.
This is the only resort in Asheville with the distinction of being a member of the French Broad River Yacht Club* where the motto is “One Man’s Inner Tube is Another Man’s Yacht!” Get in touch with your inner tube. Guests at Asheville River Cabins have these comfortable yachts available to them at all times during their visit at no extra charge. Of course if you are going to have a Yacht Club you also need a golf course. Guests are provided with their own set of two wedge golf clubs with a small bucket of balls and a five (5) acre three (3) hole golf course for practice of wedge shots. Yes sir folks, as we say down South…”Your in high cotton now!”
In the evening you want a small campfire by the river, no problem we have fire pits available. You have a group of friends, a reunion, a wedding party, and want something special for the evening to remember…I can build you a bonfire that will knock your socks off.
Our Special Location
What we offer on site is only part of what makes Asheville River Cabins special, our location is ideal starting with the fact that we are located across the river from the Biltmore Estate so if you took a trip down the river to Asheville you would go through the Estate and a few miles down actually see the House itself from the river.
However, if you are driving and turn right out of our entrance within two miles you can be at the NC Arboretum where there are walking and hiking trails. Visitors from across the world enjoy exploring the Arboretum’s exhibits and 65 acres of cultivated gardens, including one of the finest, most unique bonsai collections in the United States. At the Arboretum is the entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway at Milepost 393.6: from there you can drive 15 miles up to Pisgah Inn Restaurant for great views and a great meal.
Other restaurants can be found only two miles away at Biltmore Park Town Square a development by one of the heirs of the Biltmore Estate. It’s like a first rate miniature town with half a dozen great restaurants, more than a
dozen theatres, Barnes & Noble, and other brand stores as well as a modern YMCA with an Olympic pool and total
fitness center (if your interested let me know I can sometimes get guest passes to the Y). Just a few hundred feet up
the road from Biltmore Park you’ll find a very nice modern Ingles Grocery Store with anything you could want for
your retreat back to nature at Asheville River Cabins.
