About the property

Exquisite 5 Bedroom 5 1/2 Bath English Country Estate On 117 Beautiful Acres

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.

Amazing unique property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Wintersun! The house and grounds are beautiful and were perfect for our group of 5 couples. The house is beautifully and uniquely decorated by the owners. Judy, one of the owners, met us soon after our arrival and was responsive to all of our needs. I would note that unlike a previous renter we thought the TV and seating area were fine for watching a college basketball game and the Super Bowl. We hiked the beautiful grounds several times and some of our group enjoyed the frisbee disk golf course as well. The back porch is outstanding with great views of the sunset each evening. The location is perfect with quick access to grocery stores and about a 15 - 20 minute drive to downtown Asheville. We can't wait to return next year!

Beautiful place and surroundings. Easily accommodates 5 couples. You won't want to leave. Lay claim to the master bedroom before others do.

A beautiful , charming estate

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely enjoyed every minute. There was nothing lacking for anything one could want. The house is tastefully and elegantly decorated and immaculately clean. We all hope to return again next year. It was great getting to meet Judy and she was always there for any questions.

Surpassed Expectations

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed all over the country in over 40 VRBOs and this place was AMAZING. We took our entire team of employees here for a year end celebration and for 2017 planning. It snowed the night we got there and it could not have been more magical. The land is beautiful and we only saw a fraction of it. Our team kept calling it the mini-Biltmore because we felt transported into a different time period. Judy was super helpful and we HIGHLY recommend having a meal catered by Celine and Company! We had 9 of us total and had PLENTY of space. Everything was clean, well taken care of, and all the fireplaces made the experience extraordinarily cozy. Was the perfect place to celebrate and be inspired for the new year. Thank you Judy for sharing your tiny piece of heaven with us!!!

Beautiful and lovely just not suited for our needs

  • 3 of 5

It was 9 of us and we found the inn absolutely beautiful! Our weekend centered around football and watching the bowl games . There was one tv in the entire inn and not enough space and places to sit to watch tv comfortably. We also had trouble using the ovens. They are not made in America !

The grounds were beautiful and hiking was good! Would come back to stay if we were coming to Asheville for another reason.

Wintersun is an experience ! It will leave a lasting impression in your heart and spirit . Amazing !

  • 5 of 5

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 !
