If you’re ready for a cozy cabin escape, Wrong Way River Lodge & Cabins in West Asheville, N.C., offers the outdoorsy charm you expect from a cabin in the mountains but without the seclusion.
Opened in September, the “urban cabin campground” is a new kind of lodging option that blends the outdoor access and nostalgia of a campground with the amenities of a hotel and the unique experiences of a short-term rental.
Located on the French Broad River Greenway, Wrong Way boasts 16 A-frame cabins designed in the “Scappalachian” style – combining Scandinavian minimalism with Appalachian craftsmanship – as well as a communal River Lodge.
Each cabin sleeps up to four with a queen size bed, queen-size sofa bed, full bathroom, private deck, mini-fridge, microwave, electric kettle, heat and air conditioning and high-speed internet. There’s no TV because you’re there to have fun.
