Overview

Asheville House Rental Photos and Description

House - 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s) - 2 Baths - (Sleeps 7-9)

This charming 1700 sq. ft. house was our home for ten years until recently when we built a larger home about three miles away. So we are close enough to be available when you need us, yet far enough away to give you the privacy you need. The house sits on almost an acre, so you're not shoulder to shoulder with neighbors. The back yard is mostly secluded, especially on the back porch, where the hot tub is located.

Willow Haven is just 15 minutes from the Biltmore Estate, 7 minutes from the Asheville Airport and the WNC Ag Center, 5 minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway, 25 minutes to Black Mountain, and 20 minutes to Hendersonville.

Comments from some of our guests:

'We were quite surprised at the luxuriousness of your home. We couldn’t have had a better experience at a B&B or hotel.' Dana & Jay

'Ed, Thank you for a beautiful home. We had a GREAT week. God bless you all.' Bob & Sheri

By the way, Asheville has some fantastic restaurants of which most visitors are not aware. A couple of our favorites are a fine dining restaurant specializing in German and Italian cuisine and a smokeless pub that has an Irish music jam session every Sunday night and Irish/English food. When you arrive at Willow Haven, you will find a list of our favorites along with directions and phone numbers for reservations.

About Ed Mathis

After working as missionaries in Zaire, Kenya, and France for 9 years, my wife (Sheryl) and I (Ed) returned to the States and purchased Willow Haven in 1996. We lived there for 12 years. After adopting 3 children, the house began to feel a bit crowded, so in 2007 we built a new house about 3 miles away and began renting Willow Haven as a vacation rental. I also own a small family electronics business in which we design and assemble printed circuit boards, so if you need any pc boards...

Ed Mathis purchased this house in 1995

Why Ed Mathis chose Asheville

Willow Haven is 13 miles from the entrance to the Biltmore Estate, 4 miles from the Asheville airport, 4 miles from the Western Carolina Agricultural Center, and about 12 miles from downtown Asheville. It is on a smooth, comfortable, paved road, easy to drive, not steep, does not require a 4 wheel drive except in unusually bad weather, and is just over a mile from I-26, exit 37, where you can find groceries, plenty of nice restaurants, and movie cinemas. Even though there are other houses around, it is pretty much secluded, especially on the back porch where the hot tub is located, so you don't have to worry about neighbors being able to see you. Very homey and comfortable.

As Good As It Gets

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a more comfortable, convenient or accomodating place to stay. This home was beautifully and comfortably furnished with a fully stocked kitchen, and a comprehensive movie and book selection for adults and children. Ammenities included a big screen TV, hot tub, outdoor hammock, living and family rooms, two bathrooms and the most amazingly comfortable master bed that I have ever slept on!!! Our hosts provided information on a great selection of local stores, restaurants and activities. In addition, we were able to extend our stay for an additional day with very little notice. We were absolutely thrilled with the experience, and will always choose renting a vacation home over staying in a hotel in the future. We will, without hesitation, request this home again if we journey to North Carolina.

A Lovely Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our weekend in Asheville was lovely. We arrived two days after significant snow and Ed had the driveway plowed and ready to go for us. We brought our dog and he loved playing in the snow. Ed was very easily accessible for questions and concerns. The hot tub and hockey table were great. Plenty of dishes, pots and pans for cooking. We spent more time at the house then downtown! Thanks for everything Ed, we really enjoyed our stay!

COMFORTABLE...WONDERFUL BEDS!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We visited North Carolina to celebrate my aunt's 80th Birthday (3 sisters and Mom...cousin joined us a few nights). This house is convenient to Ashville, Hendersonville, and Saluda. Relaxing in the hot tub each night was AWESOME! The beds were WONDERFUL...kitchen well stocked! I would rent this home again in a heartbeat! Thanks for offering such a warm, CLEAN and cozy home!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words! Yes, we lived in that house for 12 years before building a new one, and we've tried to keep it pretty much the way it was when we lived in it. Glad you enjoyed it. You're welcome to come back any time! Ed

Nice and Relaxing

We spent the weekend there and we had a nice and relaxing time. Everything was so cozy and very clean. It makes you not want to leave the house. Can't wait to return for another lovely visit.

Very nice place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed our week at your vacation rental. It was exactly as your advertisement said it was.

It had everything we needed, and the price was excellent. For the price of a hotel room, we got three bedrooms and a hot tub in a pleasant, residential neighborhood.

I would heartily recommend it to anyone!!!!
