Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a very pleasant stay, the unit is very cozy. The fall leaves & the mountain views from the deck are just gorgeous! The deck is perfect to enjoy the calm & the sounds of the surrounding nature. This week was so relaxing, our family really enjoyed it. We hope to come back soon. Thanks to Iris, the manager, for being so helpful in making this happen so smoothly for us.

Fun With the Girls

Beautiful view, very clean, had everything we could have wanted or needed. A little drive into Asheville and the Biltmore, but great for relaxing and catching up with old friends. Iris (manger) was very nice and helpful.

Peaceful inside and out

  • 5 out of 5
This is a very nice, well-built, attractive 3BR home. The house is just a short drive from the airport and from Highway 25--one of the main routes into Asheville with every kind of store, restaurant, etc. that you could possibly need along it. The house itself is in the woods on the side of a mountain. The driveway is steep but paved and we had no trouble getting up there in a regular, full-sized car. You can park right next to the front door and it's just 3-4 steps up into the house, then everything is on the same level. In addition to the jacuzzi bathtub there are two walk-in showers, one with a seat, so the house is appropriate for someone with limited mobility (as we had in our group). There is a huge deck with a pretty view. We cooked out on the grill and ate on the deck whenever we could. It's very peaceful out there in the evening.

The house was extremely clean and neat. The property manager, Iris, told us that pesticides had never been used in the house, that the all cleaning products were green, and that although linens were washed in a lightly scented, eco-friendly detergent, no fabric softeners, air fresheners, or other fragrances were used in the house. No pets, no smoking, no fireplace. Although every person reacts differently, I think it could be a safe house for people (like me) who are sensitive to fragrances and chemicals.

The interior of the house is attractive, well laid out, with high quality furniture and fixtures. Everything we needed was there--lots of towels, dishes, silverware, pots and pans, cooking utensils, whatever--there were enough glasses and pillows for an army, I think. The master bedroom and second bedroom beds were very comfortable. The third bedroom has a single bed and a trundle bed that would be great for kids, but I'm not sure adults would be very comfortable in there. We didn't use the pull-out couch, coffee maker, or TV, so I can't comment on those.

There is a separate unit downstairs that was occupied while we were there, but we only heard the tenant one time. It certainly was not a problem. Iris was friendly and helpful and showed us around and how everything worked when we arrived. Overall a very pleasant place to stay.

Great stay for seeing the Asheville sights

  • 5 out of 5
Very clean and up to date property, reasonably close to the Biltmore (15 min) and Asheville (20 min). Although it is lacking some amenities we would look for in a mountain retreat (hot tub, fireplace), it was a great value for the price. Comfortably slept my family and in-laws (4 adults and 2 children). Highly recommended as a place to lay your head to visit the sights, but not necessarily as a destination in itself.

Beautiful Cabin in the mountains close to Asheville, NC.

  • 4 out of 5
My wife and I spent 5 nights and 4 days in this beautiful mountain cabin. Everything was top notch, nice kitchen, two beautiful updated bathrooms. The only constructive criticism I have is that there are no fireplaces and the beds need to be replaced with modern type comfortable beds. The ones there are old and creaky. I slept on the floor one night because my back hurt so much from no support. About the fireplaces. When I go into parts of the country that are in the cool and cold mountains one of the things I like to do is sit by a fire, either inside or out. This cabin has natural gas, so having fireplaces inside and out that are maintenance free should be easy to do. However, I understand that this may be the owner's preference. Please let me restate that the cabin was beautiful and well maintained. And very secluded if that is what you are looking for. If not having fire places doesn't matter to you then this place is perfect. The manager was very helpful and very easy to contact during our stay there. The reason for 4 stars is the uncomfortable beds, not the absence of the fireplaces. Otherwise, this is a 5 star cabin.

Owner's Response: So pleased you enjoyed the unit. The owners try to think of everything. The comfort of guests is very important to the owners & are replacing the mattresses. Guests comment how cozy the unit is even without a fireplace (no natural gas to this area only propane). We look forward to having you as guests again soon to try out the new mattresses.

Beautiful Weekend Getaway with a Dear Friend & our families

Beautiful Weekend Getaway with a Dear Friend & our families
  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful weekend staying at your place. Iris was very helpful when we arrived and helped with our questions upon arrival. She also showed us around the place and let us know where items were that we would need for the weekend. The drive to downtown Ashville is an easy drive, but does take at least 20 mins. It is only a 1- minute drive to the outskirts of Ashville. We were hoping for a shorter drive to Ashville, but this was a doable drive allowing us to still have a great view of the mountain side when we woke up in the mornings. I would recommend staying at this vacation home. The house was also a nice layout and provided all we needed for our weekend stay in the mountains.

Owner's Response: Pleased you enjoyed this lovely home & its location. It is an easy 10 mile drive to Asheville & Biltmore Estates. During heavy traffic times it may take more than the 15 minutes. I always suggest staying off interstate I-26 as it gets backed up. Route 25 is a 5 lane highway & an easy way to go to Asheville. We look forward to having you as guests again soon.

Just perfect!

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful stay last May in this beautifully appointed, impeccably clean home! The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms were gorgeous, and the kitchen had everything we needed! The very best part of all, though, was the huge deck and the peaceful view! It was my birthday, and the owners even provided a bottle of wine! My father is still talking about this beautiful home. I highly recommend this three bedroom, 2 bathroom home. We can't wait to come back ourselves!
