Beautiful views and great location!

  • 5 of 5

Wife and I had a wonderful anniversary trip to the mountains and loved our stay here! Wonderful location and close to everywhere we wanted to go while being far enough to feel remote and private. Would definitely recommend!

Nice Mountain Views

  • 2 of 5

Since I often rely on reviews I felt obligated to post mine. This rental does have nice mountain views, is private, and is close enough to town. However I would not rent this home again for the folllowing reasons. Although this home has 2 and a half baths, there is no bathroom upstairs. There you will find a loft with 2 twin beds and one full size bed by taking a spiral staircase which is a nuisance. The beds were comfortable, yet bed linens are uninviting and the overall decor of the home is antiquated. We also found the seating in the kitchen uncomfortable as the kitchen counter chairs are quite worn. Seating for 4 is choppy at best. We were also disappointed that the fireplace was not working. Also if you prefer bar soap, bring some as only a small amount of body wash was available in the master bathroom. This home would work best for a couple as the master bedroom/bathrooms are on main floor.

Owner's Response: Wow never got a 2 star. Don't know what to say. Maybe the they didn't look at the photos. We are in the process of getting the fireplace fixed. Anyone not renting this based on this review please read other reviews.

Fantastic location, great views, peace & quiet

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful visit to Asheville. The house was perfect for us and we loved the location with views of the mountain. It is also convenient to downtown and the Blue Ridge Parkway. Bob was very helpful and courteous. We'll be back!

Quaint, secluded with beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

Off the beaten path, but well worth the 10-15min drive to get downtown Asheville. The house is secluded on the side of the mtn overlooking the BlueRidge Parkway.

The house is nicely furnished with fresh towels, linens and even some spices/coffee!

Bob politely checked in on us and gave us some suggestions for nearby hiking (although a walk up the Fox Den road is quite the hike alone!)

Looking forward to coming back next Fall!

Nice home with good location

  • 4 of 5

We liked the size of the home and location best. Owners were nice. The views out of the windows are great and the back deck was nice to drink coffee on in the morning. Note: (this place is not facing the sunset) Spiral staircase was a challenge if you had to use the bathroom in the middle of the night. Kitchen was well stocked but not as clean as I would have liked. Pretty dusty throughout the home. Grass needed to be cut as the weeds were up to my knees almost.. Not as secluded as I hoped but it was a nice home overall and the bedding and bathrooms were nice. Good for the price. None of this would effect me from reserving again, this is just stuff I noticed...Pet friendly was a great plus! Overall, 4 out 5 stars. 🙂 Good value.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Sorry about the grass it overdue and my landscaper forgot to put in on his schedule. If ever you find a problem with the cleaning please let us know as we respond quickly to those problems. You don't have the sunset but the sunrises over the mountains is nice.

Relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Great location! Quiet, beautiful view, yet easy access to grocery store and downtown! We found all of the amenities that we needed for our stay, and the house was clean and tidy! Our boys stayed in the upstairs loft without any trouble, but I can see where adults with some wear on the knees might struggle with the spiral staircase after a night or two. we enjoyed our stay in Asheville!
