This is one sweet spot!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house to celebrate my mother-in-law's 80th birthday at the beginning of August. We had fabulous weather and the large yard along the creek/river provided lots of room for day guests to join the festivities.

The house was clean and very comfortable. The kitchen is a large and well appointed which made food prep and clean up a breeze. The location also offered easy walks into town, parking, and yet a feeling of private and secludedness.

It with be at the top of our list for our next big gathering.

Thank you so much.

Hot Springs Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Great place for a family get away. Plenty of yard for children to run and play. Enjoyed fishing and playing in the creek. Relaxed in the Hot Springs' hot tubs. Loved local restaurants especially breakfast at Smoky Mountain Diner. Walking back in time at Gentry Hardware. The grandkids loved the trains going by and the engineer waving at them. Kitchen perfect for preparing large meals. Hamburgers and steaks on the charcoal grill. Enjoyed the fire pit - s'mores on a stick. Interesting history of Hot Springs - "German Internment Camp Hot Springs". Owner Chris going above and beyond to return granddaughter's "tiny baby" to Colorado. Please make the effort to stop and stay in beautiful Hot Springs. Thanks Chris and Amy for opening your beautiful home.

Beautiful Historical Home!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED this property! It was perfect for our family's 3-day trip to Hot Springs! Although the home is in downtown Hot Springs, it feels very secluded. Not only is the house beautifully decorated and stocked with everything you need, but the property is stunning, with beautiful Spring Creek running beside the property. Thanks Chris, this is our new favorite place! We look forward to our next trip and sitting by the firepit listening to the creek. Jack, Carolyn, Brownie and Ashley Rogers

incredible getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is an incredible property -- right in Hot Springs but with the privacy and serenity of being away from everyone and everywhere. We loved dipping into the river in the back, sitting around campfires and grilling. The house itself is wonderful -- lots of space and lots of amenities. We were fortunate to have great weather, but had it rained the whole time, we'd have been happy in the house.

Marvelous property, beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

Brought a group of friends for the Wild Goose festival at the nearby campgrounds and this house was absolutely wonderful. I've been renting homes from VRBO for ten years and this is in my top 3 favorites and would rent again without hesitation. Very clean, perfect amenities, backyard is amazing.

A Beautiful updated house on a creek side setting.

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful setting for family and friends. Lots of room with a beautiful modern kitchen and dining area. The huge back yard is great for games or just a relaxing on the deck. The pictures on the net are exactly what you will experience in the house. Bring your Croquet set. Grocery shopping is very limited so plan on stocking up prior to your visit. You will not be disappointed with this house and it's beautiful surroundings.

Hot Springs is a historic small mountain town located where the French Broad River crosses the Appalachian Trail in western NC. The Appalachian Trail actually goes right down the sidewalk through town. It is mostly surrounded by National Forest and features the only natural hot springs in the state of NC. Outdoor activities are abundant including rafting, kayaking, hiking, backpacking, mountain biking, fly fishing, smallmouth fishing, muskie fishing, horseback riding and most can be done without getting into a car. The town is also located about 45 minutes from the vibrant downtown of Asheville, featuring many outstanding restaurants, art galleries, live music venues and more.
