This property has two cabins! Located just a few hundred feet from the Blue Ridge Parkway. The log cabin was moved so the parkway could be built. This is located near the Linville Falls, the Linville Gorge, the Linville Caverns, and the Linville Winery. This would make a great Airbnb. The second cottage was built in 1929. Located on .44 acres in Newland, North Carolina. Main cabin, one bedroom, two bathrooms, and 773 square feet. $195,000

From the Zillow listing:


Own a slice of history just a few hundred feet from the Blue Ridge Parkway! The original cabin-a TRUE log cabin-is over 200 years old and was moved to its present location in 1926 to make room for the construction of the Blue Ridge Parkway. The upstairs loft currently holds one single bed and one twin bed. An addition was constructed on the rear of the cabin in the 1970s in order to facilitate a modern kitchen and bathroom. The rear deck was refurbished and expanded in 2017. The partially finished basement-part of the 1970s addition-features a second full-bathroom and houses the furnace room. A detached cottage, built in 1929, stands behind the log cabin. It is an old “camp-style” cottage which is being conveyed with the property and is deemed as being of little value. That being said, the cottage could certainly be refinished to a livable state without tremendous difficulty. Very near to Linville Falls, Linville Caverns, Linville River Gorge, the Linville Falls Winery, the Pisgah National Forest, and the Blue Ridge Parkway, this is a perfect full-time or part-time retreat for wilderness lovers, or a great rental/investment property.
