About Ken Cross and Patti Sharp

Ken moved to the area in 1982 from Florida, and Patti arrived 10 years later. We met in 1996 and have been together ever since. In 2007, we bought our West Asheville home on the top of our Knob because of the spectacular view and privacy. Ken retired in 2008, and Patti is semi-retired. Patti is a part-time potter and has her studio in the basement of the home. Ken enjoys photography, and we both love to travel and are scuba divers. We love to host our guests at The Top O' The Knob Chalet, and hope to meet and help our guests learn more about Asheville. We've been doing this for two years and are starting on our third year as hosts. Love to have you stay with us!

Loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised to see our room in Asheville. It was very clean and spacious. The bed and bedding were sooo comfortable. We especially enjoyed sitting on the porch for our morning tea and our evening glass of wine. Patti’s flower garden is beautiful.

Very comfortable and quiet

  • 5 of 5

If you’re looking for a place away from the business of the city but close enough to visit this is an excellent choice. Ken and Patti are great host and provide everything you need to make it a wonderful stay.

Quiet Sanctuary

  • 4 of 5

This little 'cabin' in the midst of a crowded neighborhood turned out to be a beautiful suite. Very comfortable and private place to take some much needed rest!

Owner's Response: Tony, thank you for your review. We're glad you enjoyed your stay. This would be the first time anyone referred to our neighborhood as being crowded though. One of our strong points is that we are nestled back on a private one acre parcel of land, but only about 5 minutes from minutes from everything in the area. Thank you again for your review. Ken and Patti

A much-needed getaway

  • 5 of 5

Top `o the Knob was the perfect getaway for us. Ken and Patti were very knowledgeable about the Asheville area with great suggestions for local restaurants and things to do around town. They were wonderful about answering our questions. The room was so spacious with a nice master bathroom, walk-in closet, sitting area, and a very comfortable bed. The setting is so peaceful with a great view of the mountains from the porch. We will definitely tell our friends about this wonderful place. The driveway is a little scary at first (and easy to miss the first time), but one gets used to it quickly. Thank you Ken and Patti for a great stay!!

Relaxing and Revitalizing

  • 5 of 5

Patti & Ken's property was just what I needed. I had to get away from the craziness of everyday life in Sarasota, Florida and spend time reflecting and grounding myself and Top O' The Knob was just what the doctor ordered. Lovely landscaping welcomed me to my private chalet suite. Patti and Ken invited me in immediately to walk me through the property and give me some great advise on things to do. I had unseasonably cool weather during my stay, but my hosts were ready to recommend some amazing indoor/inclement weather options. I was traveling alone, so it was wonderful knowing that I had friends next door should I need anything at all. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and came back to my everyday life rejuvenated. This place was perfect. Quiet and peaceful and just minutes away from the excitement and quirkiness of downtown Asheville. The spa tub was amazing, the bed was the most comfortable I've slept in and every thing I could have needed was already available. I cannot wait to return with my husband. Thank you Patti and Ken for such a memorable experience!!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Suzanne, what a wonderful review. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay. You left the room almost as clean as you found it. We hardly knew you were here. Please come back and visit us again sometime and do bring our husband. Call ahead before you book because we give a discount for return guests. We would love to have you come and visit us again. Glad you got home safely. Very nice to have met you. Ken and Patti
