About Sam & Laura
This house has been a home to us for many years and we have loved every minute of it. Now that our children are grown and we have downsized to a smaller home nearby, we would like to share the beauty and peace of the mountain with our guests. My wife teaches at a local university and I work in quality control for a national corporation with offices in this region. We love nature and enjoy hiking the fantastic trails in the area. We also love to travel, especially to Italy. We like to make our guests comfortable and be there whenever they need us while also giving them their space and privacy. We are only four miles away if they ever need anything.
Sam & Laura purchased this House in 2003
Why Sam & Laura chose Fairview
We love the tranquillity and beauty of the mountain. In every season there is something beautiful to witness. The chance to be so close to the natural world has been a great blessing to us and has enriched our lives in ways that cannot be expressed in words.
What makes this House unique
The chance to watch the changing view of the valley and distant mountains, to hear the wood thrush in the morning and evening, to hike the trails and be in the natural world, while also having easy access to downtown Asheville, the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Biltmore House, Cataloochee ski resort, white water rafting, and all of the other great attractions in the Western North Carolina mountains has been one of the best things about life on the mountain.

Amazing views! Clean and comfy
Wonderful views. House was very clean and spacious. Towels provided we're large and soft. Beds very comfortable. We all enjoyed our stay!!
Wonderful house with fantastic view!
We had 2 families stay at this beautiful home and thoroughly enjoyed our time here. We had plenty of room, and it is one of the most well stocked homes we’ve rented. Enjoyed morning coffee and evening dinner on the expansive porch. The yard and ping pong table were great for the kids. Sam and Laura were great hosts and checked on us to make sure we had everything we needed. Everything was very clean and comfortable and conveniently located near everything. We hiked, biked, visited the Biltmore and enjoyed a couple of dinners out in Asheville. We were close enough to get to anything within 20 or so minutes, but perfectly secluded to enjoy the feel of being up in the mountains. The Fairview community was perfect. This is a place we would definitely come back too!
Awesome house, hosts and location
We had a great stay, and hope to be able to repeat the experience in the future. Sam and Laura were on top of everything. The house is huge, clean and in good shape. Playing a little foosball in the basement was a fun break from just marveling at the gorgeous views for the multiple decks. We spent a good amount of time driving to places in Asheville. which was always under 30 minutes away. We got "comfortable" driving up the steep roads, leading to the very steep driveway, which lead to the beautiful home. Thank you for a great stay. I higly recommend this Asheville Mountain Haven.
Had an awesome time on our family vacation!
We had a wonderful time sharing memories in this home. The views from this home are breathtaking. There is so much to do in the surrounding areas. We would definitely return for another family vacation.
Great location for a family vacation... large home, secluded location yet close to Asheville.
Our family spent a week in this home and it was perfect, better than I imagined. The pictures do not do the house justice, I would actually suggest they have new pictures taken and posted!!!! We knew we were in for a special time when we walked in to find fresh cut flowers on the kitchen and dining tables! We were a family of 7 adults and a 10 month old but there was never a time that we felt on top of each other or that we needed to find our own space. Between the four different seating areas on the wrap around porch, with amazing views, there were four different seating areas inside the house, not to mention that two of the bedrooms are very spacious and have seating areas and private outside areas as well. The owners were very attentive and helpful. It was a chilly week and they came to restock our firewood supply and did a trash run for us. If there was a need they could meet I know they would do it, and happily. The driveway was not difficult to navigate and there is plenty of parking space to turn around so you aren't backing down the driveway. Also, the roads up the mountain were not narrow or scary, even for this "flatlander" from Florida!
The kitchen is well stocked and there are plenty of linens. They had sample shampoo, conditioner, lotion, toothpaste, and mouthwash in each bathroom so if you forgot something you didn't have to rush out get anything. There are plenty of spices, olive oil, and the like so do a full survey of the kitchen before you go out and purchase groceries.
The only regret we have is that we didn't spend more down time enjoying the house and each other playing games, reading, and sitting around the roaring fire.
This will definitely be a home we hope to return to with family and friends in the future. The location, views, and spacious yet cozy feeling are just what you want in a vacation home near Asheville. The attentive owners were the cherry on the top!
Amazing views in a very spacious house!!
Great 4 bedroom escape with two master bedrooms and plenty of great views! Main level has kitchen, living, dining, and two fireplaces. Upstairs has master and two guest bedrooms. Basement has additional master and ping pong and foosball tables. The thoughtfulness of the owners was great - multiple pack and plays for those with kids, soap, shampoo, toothpaste, and mouthwash with the linens in the bathroom. House is up a steep hill with switchback roads, but it’s worth it when you get to the top and see the view. Amazing wraparound porch on the main level, and private porch for master sweet upstairs. Overall a great place with owners who were willing to do whatever necessary to make the stay exceptional.
