We stayed in this tucked-away treasure in April, 2011. This beautiful Charleston-style home is perched on a mountainside 20 minutes outside of Asheville. It is loaded with charm from the inside out. Each room is decorated with a lovely mix of eclectic furnishings, including antique and contemporary pieces. The open floor plan is perfect for entertaining and socializing. The kitchen is well-equipped with everything you need to prepare a simple meal or Thanksgiving dinner. The master bedroom is very spacious and has a very comfy bed. The attached bathroom is modern with a large tiled shower. The second bedroom is roomy and has two comfy twin beds. There is a huge porch that extends across the front of the house and a large screened side porch that is perfect for taking in the views and catching a glimpse of a donkey, cow or camel, if you're lucky. Brian, the owner, gives great attention to detail, including our favorite snacks. He is friendly, easy-going and attentive. He and his wife have a nursery and farm on the property with the most unusual trees and animals we have ever seen! This home exceeded our expectations and we look forward to our next visit!
