Why Liz chose Asheville

We loved everything about mountain top living. It took several years for us to find that perfect spot and we personally designed and built our Sunset Ridge Craftsman style home. We feel like we are on vacation any time we are here and know you will love it too! We are so close to everything including the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Biltmore Estate. We have repeat customers who love the rental and convenient location. We have been in the area for 19 years and enjoy what Asheville and the mountains have to offer. Events galore & places to explore! Even Highland Craft Brewery within 10 minutes!

What makes this house unique

You will enjoy comforts of home with incredible mountain top views, sunsets, and close to downtown with an easy drive. We are just minutes away from downtown Asheville, Blue Ridge Parkway, Black Mountain, Lake Lure, Chimney Rock, town of Biltmore and the Estate, Cherokee Indian Reservation & Casino, flying in a hot air balloon, hiking, mountain biking, waterfalls, horse back riding, swimming in a mountain lake, listening to the symphony, antiquing, visiting downtown, going to a festival, or taking a drive on the Parkway, And More!!!!

Wonderful property, driveway problematic for wussy drivers like me

  • 5 of 5

The view is what sells this property. A deck with a hot tub runs the full-length of the house, with wonderful views of the mountains and sunset. The kitchen is small, but well-equipped and the bar in the LR helps with counter space. My bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in. The only drawback - and it won't be a drawback for everyone - is that great views mean you need to get to higher ground. I am not an adventurous driver and my backing-up skills suck. Therefore, the drive to the house was OK in daylight, but something I'd never attempt at night or in bad weather. OTOH, I don't think any guy I know (and a lot of women) would even blink at it. Owners live in unit above, but it is very private.

Owner's Response: We are so glad Carol had a wonderful time! What a great hot tub on your own private deck overlooking the mountain views! We have many visitors that stay several times a year. Our calendar fills up fast! Unfortunately we can't change the mountains and find a few people from flat areas are sometimes uncomfortable driving in the mountain areas. We have beautiful views of the night stars because there are not many lights. The driveway is paved. There is dim lighting to guide you and motion sensor lights to greet you when you park. A turn around is available at the bottom of the drive and a separate space at the beginning of the driveway that is provided for drivers that do not wish to park next to their door or if weather is bad. Renter chose not to use it. People usually do not have a problem and we rarely have bad weather as we were voted one of the best weather areas in the country! Only a couple light snows that lasted 2 days this winter! NO need for 4 wheel drive at this property as the main road is gradual and paved up the mountain. Many mountain homes have slightly sloped driveways. It is very important to always ask owners about anything you may be fearful of during a stay in any area. We do have other rentals available we own with short flat driveways that also have great views! We are always happy to provide info. The kitchen is a galley kitchen stocked with a large separate pantry. Many cabinets in kitchen are empty so you can store your items. Large double sink. There is a picture available on our site. Thanks!

Already planning our next stay!

  • 5 of 5

Although I am writing this review months after our stay, I would venture to say that it's a good thing because I've returned to this VRBO listing as I plan my 2nd stay at this lovely home, and hence, decided to write the review that I should have written months ago!

All the amenities are there, the views into the valley are amazing from the relaxing hot tub or from the table on the deck as you enjoy brunch, the drive to Asheville is just short enought to feel convenient but just long enough to feel secluded from the "city", the interior is very clean, new and very comfortable, the bedding is fabulous, and the personal touches (like a stocked pantry-except for coffee) make you feel right at home. We didn't get to enjoy it, but there is also a great firepit waiting for some marshmellows to be roasted!

Unlike other VRBO's we've stayed at, this unit is connected to the owners' home, but this did not bother us at all. We saw the owners once during our stay and it was to tell them how much we were enjoying our stay. They were very respectful of our privacy and I couldn't even tell that they were there.

Again, I'm here to plan my next stay (and we've stayed at a handful of other VRBO's and B&B's in the Asheville area), and that speaks for itself. Thanks for a great stay!

Owner's Response: Thanks Kristen! We love to have return customers! Since the units entrance is on the opposite side of the house we rarely see our guests. We are glad it feels private. Any suggestions are always welcome on things that may be needed for future guests! We provide wood for the fire pit and hope Kristen gets to use it next time during her stay! Enjoy the mountain views! Liz

Great Vacation_Great Place

  • 5 of 5

My Family (me, my wife + 2 teen daughters) stayed at Liz's :Sunset Ridge the week after Christmas.

What a wonderful place to stay; very clean, comfortably decorated and has every comfort of home; my wife especially liked the comfortable blankets. The fireplace was awesome, the views during sunset were superb and the cabin is located perfectly to Asheville + Chimney Rock.

We have already recommended Sunset Ridge to several of our friends.

My family has said more than once, after we left - "we wish were still vacationing at Sunset Ridge".

Thanks Liz for sharing your rental with our Family.

Wonderful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved this rental.....very clean and comfortable. The beds were wonderful. It was very nice to sit in the hot tub after a day of walking. Although we didn't really use the kitchen it was fully stocked. Loved sitting on the spacious deck relaxing with some wine and enjoying the view. The drive to the house was interesting at first but we didn't have any problems in our mini van. After the first day we figured out to back into our parking space and it was much nicer driving straight out. We saw Liz and Tony outside one day and they told us we could pick some veggies from their garden. Don't pass up on this is definitely a 5 star rental!

My husband and I are now concluding our two week working vacation and Sunset Ridge has been perfect! Liz's attention to detail has anticipated every need! The views are wonderful and the house is well appointed. Although we thought we would go to Asheville every day, it's so relaxing here we stayed "home" most of the time although Asheville is convenient. Great restaurants in Fairview. Also enjoyed cooking on the deck here and using the hot tub. We HIGHLY recommend Sunset Ridge for a relaxing vacation close to Asheville.

Wonderful Vacation at Sunset Ridge !

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 2 kids and I had a very good vacation at North Carolina. We drove up from Miami for 14 hours and it was worthy. The cabin is very well-maintained by the owners. It has everything you need and is very comfortable ( especially the beds ). We visited Dupont Forest and enjoyed its beautiful waterfalls. Also, went to the Biltmore House, gardens and Winery ( very interesting and beautiful ). Finally, we went to Liville Cavern. After each trip, it was very relaxing to get to the cabin and enjoy the mountains view and sunset. I will recommend this place to friends and family. Thanks Liz for your attention !
