Fantastic experience all around!!!

  • 5 of 5

Could not have been happier with the rental property! The house was extremely clean, well supplied and beautiful! The owners were also great with communication and I have no doubt that if we did have any issues they would have been addressed and resolved quickly. Highly recommend the house and owners of the property! We have rented multiple times across North Carolina and this experience has been one of our best! A++++

The cabin was so quiet and peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in the cabin. It is close to plenty of places to eat and shop. Just a short drive to the Biltmore village. Mr. Bob made sure we had everything we needed. Most of all we enjoyed our good night's sleep in the very comfortable bed. We would rent this cabin again anytime.

Clean comfortable perfect location for Asheville

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed an amazing view when we first got there. The location in proximity to Asheville was wonderful it took us 10 minutes to get to downtown and all of its wonderful restaurants. We saw a turkey and her little turkey babies just be bopping through the yard, and then there was mr. Rabbit who came by every day to nibble on grass. Most of our time was spent enjoying the many things to do in the area but it was really nice to come home to the turkey in the bunnies.

Great Spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday weekend at Bob's cabin. The location is closer to downtown Asheville (~15 min.) than one would think. We arrived with a toddler and an infant, and the toddler's favorite part of the whole weekend was the spiral staircase - we helped her go up and down the stairs, and it never presented a safety issue. The views were also a highlight.
