Elevacres is a like having your own private resort on a mountaintop. It is perfect for family vacations, receptions, and family reunions**(see note below).
There is a large sparkling SWIMMING POOL with a HOT TUB beside it.
Secluded on all sides, our ten acres of beautiful rolling high meadows provide gorgeous long-range views down the valley.
The swimming pool provides for a wonderful addition to any vacation. It is extremely fun to be able to swim under the stars in a warm pool even when the nights start getting a little chilly. If you want to get really warm you can jump into the beautiful hot tub beside the pool. You will really enjoy this. The pool and hot tub are not open during some of the colder months, so make sure to call and check before you book.
As renters you are welcome to all of the surrounding 120 acres that is owned by our family and extends all the way to the top of the mountain. These mountains have a great combination of forests, high meadows, rock faces, and creeks that will provide for lots of exploration on foot or horseback (we do have a two horse stall mini-barn for your horses).
We also have a large concrete pad set up for half court basketball, skating, skateboarding, and kid cars and bikes.
There is a huge lawn that is great for weddings, receptions, BBQs, badminton, volleyball, frisbee, baseball, or whatever else you can think of.
You may find it hard to leave Elevacres during your vacation to visit the other sites around Asheville. But if you do venture out you will find that we are in the perfect location. Located about twenty minutes from the Biltmore House and less to downtown Asheville, NC Arboretum, malls, and antiques, you will also get a ten minute headstart on everyone headed to nearby elk watching, Ghost Town Theme Park, and downhill skiing.
We still live in the Asheville area and we plan to move back into this house someday when the kids are raised, so we take very good care of it. You will not find a cleaner or better maintained property than Elevacres.
**There is another smaller vacation rental property further up the mountain (out of sight and hearing), so we can accommodate large groups.
Four adults and three active boys stayed at Elevacres for Spring Break and we could not have been happier with the accommodation. We would definitley come back. What we loved:
Fantastically stocked kitchen with every pot and pan needed, sugar, etc. Everything was labeled, and he even had a drawer with all the appliance manuals labelled
Big Backyard for running and playing
Two large dining tables - one for gaming and one for eating. ;)
15-20 minutes to Downtown Asheville - and Asheville is GREAT - food/brewpubs/Biltmore we found it all to be wonderful. Highly recommend Sunny Point Cafe for breakfast. Delicious!
10 minutes to very nice grocery store
Being able to see the moon from my bedroom window
Seeing the sunrise from the front porch
Hot tub, Jacuzzi Tub, Huge MBA Shower. Double sink in the 2nd bathroom.
Covered back porch
Farm noises are the only noises
Crisp fresh clean mountain air
Wonderful host who was available for any questions
Little (very minor) quibble:
The range was older and the oven took quite some time to heat up if you didn't also use the cooktop. the cooktop was gas, but wasn't quite as responsive as I am used to. Still they both cooked fine once the proper temp was established.
I was very impressed with our stay at Elevacres, it's even nicer than it looks in the pictures! It's private, great for extended families and not a bad drive to Asheville. It was very comfortable, and great for families with children. We had a great trip!
I rented this house for my daughters 16th birthday party. We just rented it for the weekend.
We had a party Saturday for her friends and Sunday for the family. The pool and hot tub are fabulous. We loved everything about the house. Everyone who came loved the home and how beautiful the scenery is. Thanks Kevin
I've rented here before and each time it has been perfect. The house is large yet open. The huge deck is perfect for reading, lounging and eating. The pool is crystal clear, sparkling and delightful. Try sitting in the hot tub one summer night and watching the fireflies light up the surrounding trees. You'll feel close to nature yet close to all the amenities of Asheville too.
We stayed at Elevacres for 4 nights. The house is about 15 mins from Asheville, and is very comfortable, living room seating for 7 or so, and there is also a sitting room. Hardwood floors, a well stocked kitchen, a nice backyard with a playset for the kids. There is a beautiful pool, but it was closed for the season. Beds were very comfortable, stylish, well kept home. There is a ping pong and air hockey table in the basement. Very nice retreat, beautiful views. Would like to go again in the summertime when the pool is opne.
Just had a wonderful stay at Elevacres with my dog and other good friends! Between the huge private yard, the wonderful views, the heated pool and hot-tub, the hiking trails and peace and quiet, we never really wanted to leave. If you have to venture out, supermarket is 10 mins away, Asheville 15-20 and the stunning Blue Ridge Parkway (Sam Knob/Balsam) is about 40 min drive. Kevin was incredibly gracious and responsive and the home was exactly as pictured. It's not a cabin, but a real home with all of the modern conveniences. Would stay again without hesitation!!
Large private swimming pool in the back yard, 120 acres of private hiking and exploring, large onsite concrete pad for half court basketball, skating, skateboarding, or kid cars and bikes, two nice creeks on property for exploring, 2 stall horse barn for your horses and plenty of acreage for riding.
