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.

Comfy and convenient

  • 5 of 5

This private, quiet mountain retreat is only about 15 minutes from downtown. Also nearby are the neighborhood grocery, restaurants, and the Blue Ridge Parkway. The house is well furnished and easy to settle into. The second story loft that functions as the second bedroom is quite spacious, easily accommodating the two single beds, double bed futon and TV. Bob, the owner, is very helpful and quick to respond to queries. My husband and I have thoroughly enjoyed our stays there and do hope to return soon.

Cozy, clean, perfect base for our spring cycling camp

  • 4 of 5

Stayed at this house in the spring of 2016. It was the base for the spring training camp for a group of three cyclists. We would'he had room for another one or a couple - the house is small but well agenced. Acess to the garage (for our bikes) would've made it absolutely perfect. It still worked out well with the bikes in the laundry room. Nice area, excellent stay, we had a good time. The short steep ramp on the access road was our little training challenge.
