Ash Grove Mountain Cabins & Camping: (www.ash-grove.com).
They are located about 15 minutes from our meeting place heading toward Brevard. (1/4 mile from 276) They have one, two, & three bedroom cabins – splitting costs would make these possibilities. The “glitch” is that there is a 3-night minimum on weekends in the summer (Friday is considered weekend.) . It looks like a really nice facility – they provide microwave ovens, etc. Check out their website.
