About Michael White

This home is owned by Steve and Henrietta Holbrooks. We are native North Carolinians and have always held a deep love and appreciation for the Blue Ridge Mountains. We've hiked many of the area trails and never missed a chance to tour the Blue Ridge Parkway. We've had great times camping there with our children and other families, sharing adventures and making memories. Now, as 'empty nesters', we've taken up kayaking, traveling, and gaining an appreciation of the culture & history of the NC Mountains. We stayed in Knob View for the first time in August 2013 and fell in love with the home immediately. The long range views along with its serenity and tranquility were so unique. We also have friends who stayed with us who, after experiencing the area, purchased land and built a vacation home nearby (VRBO #865183).

Michael White purchased this house in 2014

Why Michael White chose Asheville Area

Asheville has always been one of our favorite destinations. The area offers something for everyone. There's a vibrant arts culture with artisans and performers that bring the downtown to life after dark. It has beautiful architecture, fabulous shops, restaurants, and a booming craft beer industry. For those who prefer smaller towns, Black Mountain and Weaverville are popular destinations nearby. There's the Biltmore House, Gardens, and Winery which are a must see. Those who enjoy watersports will find a canoe/kayak outfitter just 20 minutes away on the French Broad River. And of course, the natural beauty that surrounds you explains why The Blue Ridge Parkway has been the most visited 'park' in the US every year since 1949.

What makes this house unique

Knob View Retreat offers the perfect retreat following a day exploring the Asheville area. It's only 15 minutes from downtown but seems 'worlds away'. We enjoy the privacy and quiet, you can hear the birds chirping, the squirrels rustling through the leaves, and the wind blow. At dusk the sunsets over the mountain range are to die for. At night the crickets will sing you to sleep. And of course there are mountain views everywhere you look! Ahhhhh

Best retreat tucked high up overlooking the turning trees.

  • 5 of 5

The house seemed brand new! It was clean and fully equipped. Found all the kitchen items we needed, enjoyed the BBQ, the hot tub, and ping pong table. Beds were comfortable and absolutely loved relaxing out on the deck. We hope to be back again!

Great spot for a girls getaway

  • 5 of 5

Perfect home for our annual girls getaway. Loved our time on the deck with the beautiful views; started & ended each day there! Highly recommend you arrive before dark as the road can be tricky on your first trip.

Serene Mountain Hideaway with Incomparable Views

  • 5 of 5

This well-appointed and equipped house provides 180 degree views from 2900 feet high in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The owners have thought of everything to make you comfortable. The house is tucked away in the treetops, and the views from 2 decks allow you to watch the morning mist and sun dance between the many peaks, and the sun sink behind the mountains in the evening. No hotel could ever provide these views from this height. The 3 en suite bedrooms are perfect for couples traveling together. Asheville's restaurants, galleries, breweries, shops, and music are only a 15 minute drive away, and it is really worth staying in this beautiful home in Swannanoa where you can start and end your day with unparalleled serenity and never-ending views.

Fantasic views and accomodations!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect house for 3 couples. Beautiful mountain views with easy access to downtown Asheville. Each bedroom has a full bath for added convenience. Balconies and hot tub are wonderful. Make sure to arrive during daylight as the initial drive up the hill to the property can be rather intimidating in the dark. Would definitely stay again!
