|Minimum Stay||2 - 3 nights|
Welcome to your very own piece of paradise in Asheville, North Carolina where you will enjoy your time away from the cares of this world. Located on a 135-acre gated estate, wintersun sets itself apart from other mountain homes.
As soon as you drive through the gates, you will pass a rushing trout stream, drive through a lush green valley, cross over the bridge by the trickle down ponds, pass the horses playing in a mountain meadow and drive up and away to the fern and flower-bedecked verandah, which offers a comfortable seat and a breathtaking view.
The environment is a contrast in expansiveness and intimacy. From the verandah, mountain ranges recede into smoky blue shadows, while on the arbor side the stone garden climbs 50 feet flanking a 24-foot waterfall surrounded by an enclosed lawn.
Inside the elegant country home are spacious rooms furnished with oriental rugs, antiques, huge stone fireplaces, books galore, with deep chairs and sofas for leisurely pursuits. All of Wintersun's bedrooms are beautifully appointed with fine furnishings, designer fabrics, lush linens, down comforters, private baths, cozy seating, and fireplaces, with fabulous views of the blue ridge mountains.
From the moment we entered the gates , our excitement was building for seeing Wintersun . Each memory I have of this beautiful home is etched in my heart . Our annual family reunion could not have been more special because of Wintersun . It's magical ..serene ..beautifully decorated and furnished and truly an experience worth having to share with those you love . The owner , Judy Carter , is also wonderful . She answered my questions and gave me good advice for our time spent in Asheville . I had the pleasure of meeting her upon our arrival and I thank you for your time . I will return in the future because my family and I agree that Wintersun must be experienced again in our lives with those we love . Thank you Judy for sharing your beautiful home with us !
No words can describe the Wintersun, you must go and stay. My family and I stayed this past week and actually cried as we left, we did not want to leave. The home is absolutely beautiful, from the moment we stepped into the home we were speechless and just tried to take in this beautiful amazing home. I want to thank you to Ms. Judy who is the owner of this fabulous home, thank you for making us feel at home and for all you did. Looking forward to staying there again soon. Laura
I gathered with a group of 6 other friends from high school for a weekend getaway to celebrate our 50th birthdays. Wintersun was PERFECT!!! It is gorgeous, spacious, clean, and comfortable. We had a great time and really enjoyed the veranda spaces, the views, the fireplaces in every room, the sound system, and the hiking trails. There was even plenty of room for parking. Judy was fabulous -- communicating with us in advance, providing written information, and being there to welcome and greet us upon arrival. There was not a single hitch or problem. I would not hesitate to return. It was convenient to the airport, downtown Asheville, and the Biltmore, as well as several grocery stores. I am just delighted with the entire experience.
Words or pictures cannot describe the beauty and charm of this magnificent home. I organized a reunion of 9 people that have been getting together for several years and everyone was thrilled about this pick. We have stayed at many different beautiful places but, the consensus was this property was the most unique and grand. It was a great time of year to visit the Biltmore and enjoy the Christmas lights and the best part was how close we were, yet felt like we were in our own little world with all of the surrounding acreage. Judy could not have been more accommodating.
We absolutely loved this house! It was a perfect place for our girls weekend! It was close enough to Asheville (15 minute drive) but far enough away to have no traffic or congestion near us. The house was beautiful and there was enough room for the 8 of us to spread out. Our favorite part of the house was the porch that overlooked the mountains! Would book for a weekend again!
From the moment we drove up the long driveway to walking in the house the first time we were in vacation heaven! The house is huge, very beautifully decorated with incredible views. From waking and having coffee on the veranda, heading out all day to great places to hike (Chimney Rock, Grandfather Mountain, Dupont Park), touring Biltmore, NC Arboretum and Asheville, then back in late afternoon with appetizers and wine on the front porch or in the waterfall garden and then dinner in the formal dining room we couldn't have asked for a better vacation. Would highly recommend and Judy couldn't have been a better person to deal with the whole experience. Looking forward to coming back in the future!
