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 in the hot tub or 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.
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.
The property is well maintained and has a pretty good view of the mountains. The pictures on VRBO are accurate to the views. The hot tub was a nice feature to relax after a day of hiking at nearby DuPont State Forest. The owners were easy to work with. We never had to contact them for any issues but I get the impression they would respond quickly if ever needed.
We really enjoying staying here. The house was so charming and perfect. It had everything we needed. It was so peaceful and relaxing , but it was so easy and quick to get to town for shopping, restaurants and day trips. My husband really enjoyed the hot tub., and so did I after doing one of our several hiking trips.
I especially loved the flowers and flowerbed with the bird feeder. We sat out in the morning drinking our coffee and watching the birds. I even managed to catch a view of a white squirrel--quite exciting!!!! We would book this place again . We did not have any children with us, but this would be a nice place to bring some. There was a room just for them with a TV, vide games, air hockey table and board games. They thought of everything.
We really enjoyed our stay in this house and would definitely rent it again in the future. I can see this being a great place to stay during the fall color season.
We really enjoyed the house last week. It's exactly like the pictures and better. Couldn't have asked for a better location - minutes from Dupont State Forest and the excellent bike trails there. We divided our time between relaxing the quiet peace of the house and hot-tub and the bike trails. It was a fabulous week.
For those reading the comments and planning your stay, the K-cup coffee machine was replaced with a more regular coffee maker.
Perfect location for a Pisgah/Dupont bike trip--15 minutes to Dupont. Property is very well-maintained, clean, and comfortable. Our 14, 12, and 4 year old had a great time playing air hockey and throwing frisbee in the huge backyard. Highly recommended!
