Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this house, which has amazing views, well stocked kitchen, extremely comfortable beds and linens, very nicely decorated. There are 2 master bedrooms on the main floor which made it comfortable for our parents (they didn't need to deal with stairs), there is a very large grand master bedroom upstairs and 2 other guest bedrooms upstairs. The house is a gem and within 10 minutes to the Asheville airport, Biltmore Park, the Blue Ridge Parkway and Sierra Nevada.

Perfect for a lovely Asheville getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time renting this place for my friends and kids- it’s the perfect sIze for a big group with great communal space. Feels far enough away from the busy city but close enough to get you anywhere you need to be in 20 minutes. The renters were excellent communicators - we will keep coming back!

Lovely home in The Cliffs

  • 5 of 5

The home is exactly as described. We enjoyed our stay and found the home very comfortable and the owner was very easy to communicate with. The kitchen had every modern convenience and the home's location makes it easy to get to any and all of the Asheville many destinations. The only complaint is that the TV is very difficult to figure out, even with the one page of typed instructions on how to operate it. We didn't end up using it. Although, I can say, that I have no doubt that if I had contacted the owner, she would have walked us through on how to use it. We just didn't bother as we didn't have a lot of need to watch TV. Other than that one small thing, I would recommend this property :)

Beautiful home in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family visited Asheville for our sons graduation. Our party of 8 adults which included 2 sets of grandparents needed adequate ground floor access. This property exceeded our expectations. The two ground floor level master bedroom suites were spacious. The upper level master was SPECTACULAR. We also appreciated the additional two bedrooms adjacent to the upper level master. This is a gorgeous property and we would definetely consider renting again.
