What saucystargazer and QuilterChick said...
and, agree that the couple acres itself puts the situ out of the OP's initial budget.

Also, unless one is back in a very remote area, or has several acres, the shooting
range is difficult too, simply from the aspect of 'room', safety and neighbors unless
one is very remote, or has the acreage. All of which is precluded by the 'budget', imo.

In western NC you can not buy a new single wide with no land for under $30,000. Thoes kind of log cabins you have pictured are kit homes & last I saw they start at $75,000 just for the home then you have to find land to put it on.

I just searched land in Buncombe, Haywood, Henderson & Madison countes. There are over 1000 lots on the market. when I narrowed down the search to just private, wooded, level & with views, 1 to 2 acres. That search brought up 2 lots. 1 is 1.67 acres for $40,000, the other is 1.04 acres for $49,000. both of them in Buncombe county.

My suggestion is that you look in North GA, or east TN. Land is much cheaper there.

Look a little further away from the typical mountain regions and you might find something.People in certain counties of WNC think their area is solid gold....

We are in Rutherford County,we have mountain views and none of the issues,land is useable,and you don't have to deal with the hordes of people closer in to the mountains.

I have seen cabin shells on small acreage(1 acre or so) listed for $75,000....

And by and large those properties are still listed.

Did a search of properties on acreage and found an old 2bd 1ba home(not a cabin...) on 5 acres for $59,900.

I think you can find it for $50,000 if you go way further out. I think I've seen them in my neck of the woods, but I'm in Hiawassee, GA.

Red face I saw land the other day for $10K - $25k per acre, just depends on how much you want to buy.

If you put another $35K with it, you can have a small cabin. So, it is possible to get a small cabin for $60K .
