About the property

Town House with Bedroom, full Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Home Again – finally! A quiet, easy get-away with exceptional short AND long-range views.  The mountains provide a sense of comfort and history--at least seven ridges are visible from the deck. Sunsets provided nightly. Home Again is a place to pause, to enjoy the soft breezes, to rest and relax. Unwind in the therapeutic hot tub with its jets and underwater lights--magical beneath the stars!  Sway in the hammock or kick back on the deck and gaze at the mountains. Walk or sit in the gardens --there are glorious flowers -- annuals and perennials, shrubs and hedges, colorful red maples, scarlet oaks, sweet gums and hickorys, colors almost beyond belief set in mountain stone rock work. You'll hear lots of different birds, may see wild turkeys and red tailed hawks, and will feel the nearly constant, gentle wind on your face. A solar-lighted path escorts you to your suite, which opens into nearly 1,000 sq.ft. of fully carpeted, upscale living space. The Queen size bed cradles you with a down comforter and Egyptian sheets; French doors separate your bedroom and living area. Enjoy the refrigerator, microwave, and coffee pot. The rich, full bath has soft, fluffy white towels and colorful beach towels for hot tub use. Home Again - a perfect vacation retreat offering a truly beautiful experience. Home Again is waiting for you. Downtown Asheville and Biltmore Estate are only minutes away, as are I-40, I-240, the Blue Ridge Parkway. Home Again is also minutes away from the Veteran's Hospital and the Mission Hospitals. Come Home...

About Jeannie Murtagh

There are both short and long range views of the mountains and the suite is surrounded by woods and a pasture. It is so private and peaceful. Since the suite, hot tub, and deck face west, visitors enjoy the slow sunset over the mountains every night. And at night, you can hear the owls talking to each other.

Jeannie Murtagh purchased this townhome in 2004

Why Jeannie Murtagh chose Asheville Area

I feel so nurtured being in the mountains and it is beautiful beyond words. It's experiential! There is nature everywhere, a cow pasture on the ridge (no cows right now), trees, woods, gardens, expansive views of the mountains. Sometimes the wind whistles and trees make their rubbing noises!

What makes this townhome unique

The incredible serenity and peace while sitting in the gardens and looking out at the mountains. It soothes my soul. And it's close to everything.

My husband and I came here for our honeymoon, and it was beautiful! The location was conveniently close to everything, but you still feel really secluded. Highly recommend!

What a view

Couldn't have been more pleased with our stay. Waking up to that view every morning makes you never want to leave. Comfortable bed and nice relaxing hot tub. It does not get much better, thank you for everything. I hope we can stay again in the future.

Peace and Quiet with an Spectacular View

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

Jeannie, the host, is warm and friendly with a great sense of humor. Her property is the large bottom floor of a hillside townhouse with its own deck and patio. A full size hot tub is just outside the door. Everything was clean and the bed was pretty comfortable, the chairs in the living room area a bit less so. Kitchenette in the bedroom consists of coffeemaker, microwave and mini fridge, no sink, range or grill, laundry off the bedroom, bathroom a short walk down the hall. Rock stairs from the driveway leading down to the unit are a bit dicey at night but OK with a flash, there is a railing. It's peaceful and quiet with a great view of the wooded mountains. Very convenient to Asheville, 15 or less minutes to downtown. I'd stay there again but probably not in the winter because it's a rather steep twisty drive up to to the property.

This was the perfect place for a weekend getaway! She seriously has everything you could possibly need readily available. The unit was the perfect size and the hot tub was great! It is in the perfect location as well. You can see the mountains and you're only a 15 minute drive to Asheville.
