In 1862, farmer-turned-soldier Pvt. Riley Ray enlisted in the civil war. He survived, returned to the area and began building this log cabin in 1864. In 2017, his descendants sold it to us and we're sharing it with you! An extensive rehab, a pristine setting and modern upgrades guarantee a memorable stay in a piece of rare American history. Only 20 mins. to downtown Asheville, 2 miles from Bent Creek State Park and river tubing, and 10 minutes to the airport and Sierra Nevada. This. Is. It.
