Default What is the best area to buy land for a cabin?

I am wanting to buy land in WNC and build a cabin in the future. What is a good area to look? I would like tall trees, river or lake near by. I would prefer a lot in a subdivison but it's not nessessary. In your opinion, what would be a good city/subdivision?

Sorry I didn't include price range earlier.....my bad. I'm thinking about 100K price range. Also thinking around 2 acres.

I would research online and make a few trips here to make your final decision. IMO, I haven't visited a 'bad' place to live in the mountains!

That should be doable, just not right close in to Asheville. Check out all the surrounding counties, make some visits when you can, and best of luck!

I'd check out the Lake Adger area

Crazy as it may sound, check out craigs list for Asheville, which includes much of western NC, for property for sale. I've been watching it myself since we'll be moving soon, and have found many deals for less than 100k that should fit the bill for you.

You'll have no problem at all finding what you're looking for in Ashe County. There are a lot of riverfront neighborhoods in Todd, Crumpler, etc...
