Escape to the peace and comfort of this lovely mountain retreat! A newly remodeled special find located on a spacious acre offers all the comforts of home. Enjoy a fully-equipped kitchen, game room with cable TV, Wi-Fi, air hockey, and more. Storage building (12X24) available for bike and kayak storage. After biking, hiking, or enjoying the area attractions you'll relax and savor your dinner on the back porch with beautiful mountain views! You're within minutes of endless waterfalls, Dupont Forest, Pisgah National Forest and Brevard. Excellent road biking along the French Broad River on well known Talley Road (only 300 yards away) is easily accessible from the house. Restaurants, gas, and grocery nearby.
This home has given our family a perfect place to raise our kids and enjoy the peacful mountain setting. We have loved being so close to nature and all that Dupont and Pisgah National Forest offers with it's endless hiking/biking trails and waterfalls.
After moving we have recently remodeled our special find and would like for other families to enjoy the same relaxing retreat that we've had.
OK we appreciated the ability to get the house last minute and for only two days - thank you. I have rented through VRBO many times and would consider this house expensive for what you get, that maybe due to the last minute short term nature of our visit. If you want a hot tub, it may be worth the extra expense, but we did not use it. After reading other discussions about lack of dryer, I searched it out - there IS a dryer - in the garage.
The house is a small three bedroom with one bath, small kitchen and a game room. Small screen CRT TV been a while since I have seen those. Clean house but tired looking, could use a lighter paint job and better kitchen towels, something that actually drys dishes - not those synthetic things.
There is a nail that sticks up in the middle of the hallway - be extra careful if you take your shoes off. The tile in the bathroom sticks up 1/2- 3/4 inch with no molding - watch your toes.
Pleasant stay for us two old folks for two days, any longer we may have gone to a hotel.
We thoroughly enjoyed this place! We were gone most of the time hiking and then to Biltmore but the nights were spent in the hot tub on the deck and we slept very well in the king size bed! We didn't have the kids with us this weekend but there is certainly enough space to bring them next time!
This place is beautiful and very close to Pisgah and Dupont Parks. The hot tub was soooooo nice after a long day of hiking.
Very nice small home. We enjoyed the home, and the hot tub was a plus!
Comfortable accommodations with easy access for us to Brevard and Flat Rock. Excellent communication with the owners.
We were surprised to find that, although the agreement says that there is adequate cell phone service, we had no cell phone service at all. The description of the property stated there was a washer and dryer but there was no dryer. There were minor repairs that needed to be made, i.e. replacing missing/non-functioning lightbulbs including the hallway light and repairing the stoppers in the bathroom sinks. Renters are asked to put dishes in the dishwasher and turn it on before leaving. We had difficulty in starting the dishwasher and had to unload it and wash, dry and put the dishes away just as we were getting ready to leave. There were no directions. Having set aside one afternoon during our entire vacation to just relax, enjoy the view and read on the deck, it was rather jarring to hear a loud power tools and smell gas for about 45 minutes when the landscaper came to trim hedges and clear leaves, forcing us to retreat inside. Had we known he was coming that afternoon, we would have changed our schedule. There was a broken window (the outside pane of a double pane window) with shards of glass on the outside windowsill.
When we notified the owners of several of our concerns, they said they were aware of the broken window. They volunteered to refund our money and suggested we go to the Hampton Inn several miles away. Our purpose had been to enjoy a quiet vacation home but we checked with Hampton Inn and there were no rooms available for that period of time. After we let the owners know about the hotel, they never replied.
On the positive side, the home is furnished nicely and there is beautiful landscaping. It is conveniently located for hiking and sightseeing at the waterfalls and is about 45 minutes from Asheville. A grocery store, Walmart, Belks and several restaurants are not far away. Most of the problems we encountered could have been avoided with some routine maintenance and communication.
