Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday home in Asheville - Hart House

House, 6 Bedrooms + Den, 4.5 Baths (Sleeps 18-20)

This luxurious mountain retreat, nestled in the Cane Creek Valley of the Blue Ridge Mountains, on the immediate outskirts of downtown Asheville, offers a relaxing and invigorating escape.

The Hart House is luxury.

Hart House:

Be outrageously spoiled by the amenities of this exquisite & enchanted home: multiple Great Rm/Gathering Rms, Chef's quality kitchen with quality cookware, king & queen beds with sumptuous bedding, multiple wood burning & gas log fireplaces, high speed internet connection, 46 inch HDTV with surround sound & premium stations, flat screenTVs in every bedroom, big movie library, kid’s indoor playroom and outdoor play equipment, and so much more!

It is a warm, inviting home rather than just a 'vacation rental house.' Frankly, it feels like 'your home' from the moment you arrive. We are LOCAL OWNERS taking exquisite care of our property & are available anytime to see to your needs. We make sure the home is exceptionally clean, well maintained & ready for you just relax & unwind.......


The Hart House is secluded at the end of a small, private drive, surrounded by 100+ acres acres of lush forest, horse farms, cattle ranch and horse grazing meadows. It has 6 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, with about 4,500 SF. Surprisingly, although this home is just 5 miles from Interstate 26, 10 minutes from the airport, only 20 minutes from downtown Asheville and 10 minutes from the shopping village at Biltmore Park, this picturesque estate home is quiet, private and in an enchanted world of its own.


The inviting & open feel of the main living room with wood burning fireplace, rich wood floors, and attractive and comfortable furnishings will embrace you with its warm ambiance. You are right off the kitchen and casual dining area, so that everyone can be a part of preparing meals, sharing time together, and simply gathering in front of the fire.


The Great Rm is flanked by an exquisitely designed, warm and inviting Den, where relaxation takes on a whole new meaning. A gas log fireplace, hardwood paneled walls (reclaimed from the Sears Tower), and beautiful, comfortable furniture, create an ambiance to melt away the world around you!


The delightful, chef's quality, eat-in kitchen will charm you with the beautiful cherry cabinets, wood floors, comfortable bar stools, and casual dining area. The 3 ovens, extra large refrigerator and awesome amount of counter space will make you smile, and the top quality cookware will please any chef! This cook’s kitchen is set up with everything you need for preparing meals at home. The knives are sharp, there’s a multitude of quality cookware, coffeemaker and even a coffee grinder for your freshly brewed coffee. There’s an assortment of basic spices and pantry storage for your groceries.


Beautiful furnishings, fireplace, and tasteful surroundings. Grab a book & curl up on the couch!


Formal Dining Rm, right off of the kitchen & Living Room. Affords the ability to entertain in a more formal atmosphere, or simply have room for additional guests.


The quietly elegant master suite will embrace you in rich restful comfort. You will feel like you’ve been transported to a beautiful spa! Feel pampered by the ultra plush King Bed with sumptuous bedding, beautiful tables, armoire & dresser, lovely décor, and hard-wood floors with area rugs. The generous windows with view of the lovely grounds offer plenty of natural light. In addition, this generous-size king suite offers a large walk-in closet and private bathroom with a large tile shower and jetted tub.


The four (4) guest bedrooms with rich colored carpeting, will spoil you with either a king bed or luxurious queen beds, 400 count sheets, cloud soft blankets and elegant comforters. The beautiful furniture and décor in these rooms are pleasing to the eye and spirit. You’ll sleep well here! Just up the connecting hallway is a large 'bunk room' done in rich color tones. Linens are always provided, with fat fluffy towels.


For children, there is an indoor brightly colored bunk room/playroom filled kids’ books & games, soft blankies and comfy twin beds with comfy couch & a big screen TV. Outside, there is an extensive cedar playground set with swings, slide, and fort with covered roof. We have games, and also have a large DVD movie library & high speed Internet wireless connection and phones with free local service so you can stay in touch! For infants we can provide a 'pack-n-play', and have a rental agency that can provide everything and anything you might need for your vacation.


You will be captivated with all the private outdoor space! There are decks with plenty of tables and chairs, a spacious & expansive front porch that oozes Southern charm and has a gorgeous view of Burney mountain. An extensive children’s playground and a large level lawn area for running, playing and entertaining. A campfire pit and complimentary s'more makings add an element of fun! The back of our property borders a private estate and the side yard borders a 20+ acre cattle ranch. It’s hard to believe you are only 10 minutes from the Interstate,and 20 minutes from downtown Asheville in this secluded, enchanted oasis!

We promise you a very clean and well maintained home that is thoughtfully furnished with your every need in mind! We happily invite you to experience the luxurious & delightful Hart House for yourself! You deserve to vacation where you can relax, unwind, absolutely be spoiled!

About Mary Hart

Having grown up in North Carolina, I moved to Alaska at the age of 21, where I lived and worked for 19 years and where all 3 of my boys were born. We moved back to NC in 2003 and lived in Hart House as a family until 2011. With 2 of my 3 boys away at school, my sons and I no longer needed such a big space but did not want to part with our beloved family home. So, the decision was made to move into a smaller property and offer Hart House to guests who wanted to experience a wonderful western North Carolina retreat together in one house - not in a hotel. It has been more rewarding than we could have imagined to know that groups of families, friends, business colleagues and wedding parties have come together to enjoy the Asheville area and the home that we love. If you are reading this...I hope that we can make your stay in the Asheville area the best that it can be!!

Mary Hart purchased this house in 2003

Why Mary Hart chose Asheville Area

Hart House was purchased as a family home because I wanted to live, work, and raise my children in the Asheville area. Western North Carolina is beautiful, the people are genuine, the culture is outstanding, and there is more to do here than there is time in which to do it. It is wonderful to see people from other places enjoying the beauty and character of the Asheville area!

What makes this house unique

My favorite things about Hart House: sitting in front of one of the fireplaces on a winter's night; cooking for groups of friends or family - 3 ovens and lots of counter space make it SO much easier; sipping a cup of tea on the front porch on a peaceful, warm Spring morning; roasting marshmallows around the campfire pit in the lower yard; grilling dinner on the back porch while enjoying a glass of wine and music with my family and friends.

Hart House - luxurious Asheville Vacation Country Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Hart House celebrating my Dad’s 90th birthday!

He was so pleased that we could enjoy such a beautiful home where we could all stay comfortably. The facilities were great. We cooked all our meals at the house…kitchen was well equipped and there were plenty of plates, table service and glassware. Refrigerator was a great size and at one meal I think we used all 3 ovens – perfect.

The downstairs rooms are nicely set up for group conversations and the kids loved the swing set. Beds were comfortable, too. Several members of our group did the “lazy-mans river tubing" on Friday…and enjoyed it!

What a marvelous place Hart House is! We recommend it for family gatherings.Thanks again for a great place for a wonderful event!

wonderful family reunion venue

  • 5 of 5

We recently had a family reunion at the Hart House. Family members ranged in age from 71 years to 16 months. Amoreena was very helpful with every inquiry and the house and its surroundings made for a beautiful and comfortable setting. The great room, kitchen and covered back porch were perfect for meals and gatherings of the whole family, yet there was plenty of space for individuals and small groups to spread out and find a quiet nook. We made good use of the games in the cabinet next to the fireplace and the swing set and basketball hoop on the grounds. The kitchen was well appointed with all we needed for preparing and serving our meals. The bedrooms were great and the bathrooms were spotless with plenty of towels. We also appreciated the feeling of being in a quiet rural setting, yet minutes away from grocery shopping, restaurants, natural parks and Asheville's great offerings.

A great house for a family get together

  • 5 of 5

A great house for an extended family get together. Beds were very comfortable, Plenty of bathrooms, a great front porch, patio, and back yard. The first floor had many rooms for the family to spread out. I have rented many houses and condos, and when it says the kitchen is well stocked, they mean it. Plenty of quality pot's, pan's, mixing bowl's, cutting knifes, plates, silverware, wine glasses, and beer glasses. Even had a cabinet full of spices.

We were very pleased that Mary allowed us to bring our Golden Retriever. He had a good time running in the back yard, and being with the family.

We would do it again the next time we were in the area.

The perfect wedding venue

  • 5 of 5

The Hart House was nothing less than perfect for our small wedding. Mary was graciously hospitable, and made us feel right at home as soon as we arrived. The house was set up perfectly for our intimate wedding and we were sad to leave such a beautiful estate. We will be returning for family reunions in the future. We highly reccommend this rental for any occasion.

Great Place for a Girls' Trip!

  • 5 of 5

The Hart House is beautiful and the grounds are lovely. The house was immaculately clean and the local popcorn that awaited us was delicious. The house is spacious and well equipped and I would love to visit again in warmer weather to enjoy more of the property. Amoreena was very helpful and easy to work with. I would highly recommend this house for large groups who want to spread out a bit.

Breathtaking wedding weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Mrs. Hart was literally the most wonderful person my family and I have ever met. Indeed - no exaggeration. My husband and I wanted a small wedding with only about 40 guests, with a place large enough for his family to stay from Indiana and mine to come from 3 hours east in North Carolina. We held our ceremony and reception on the grounds and had an incredible time. The landscaping on the property is impeccable, and we had over 50 people in the home at one time, with room for catering, cake cutting and dancing on the patio and in the kitchen! It felt like home, was cozy, beautiful, and despite a bit of rain as our vows were said, we had the perfect, most beautiful day. You can't put a price on worry-free, pristine accommodations for guests, and the personal touch of being able to drive up to the House and get a personal tour prior to the wedding day. Mary is WONDERFUL. WONDERFUL! She made the most beautiful day of my life FLAWLESS. I think we'll do anniversary's there, too! Asheville is only a few minutes away...
