Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday townhome in Swannanoa - Home Again

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.

Relaxing mountain getaway, with a view!!

  • 5 of 5

This property is wonderful! It's quiet, peaceful, clean and overall just a great place to rent. The owner, Jeannie, welcomed us when we arrived, offered us beers. The accommodations are great. The place is extremely clean and well maintained. The bed was very comfy and there was every comfort available. We were only able to use the hot tub once but it was perfect. The hot tub overlooks the mountains and was great to relax in. Asheville is a great town and we can't wait to come back!

Loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

While planning our trip to the Asheville area, we initially thought we'd find a hotel downtown, close to the many great breweries. After looking through the VRBO postings, we were struck by the pictures on Jeannie's site showing the view from her deck. We decided to take a chance, and we could not have been more thrilled! Her place was impeccably clean, the rooms were larger than we expected, and the view could not have been any better. We woke up our first morning to a beautiful view of the mountains with the valleys filled with clouds. It made for some of the best photographs of our trip. Drinking coffee on the deck with that view in front of us was good as it gets. Jeanie herself was a delight. She never intruded on our privacy downstairs, but was friendly and outgoing when we ran into her in the driveway. We can't recommend this place any more strongly, and will use her again if we return to the area.

Amazing Views and Awesome Owner!!!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location a short drive from the parkway and from downtown Asheville. Perfect Views over looking the valley! House is seriously on the side of the mountain and the hot tub was amazing! We went for a quick romantic getaway and I would go back in a heartbeat.

Astounding

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot describe the relaxation and serenity felt here. The place is much more spacious than what the pictures seem and is perfectly clean and air conditioned. The views were immaculate and the stars make you consider your purpose in life. If you're reading this and haven't rented the place yet, you confuse me. 11/10 would and will stay again.
