Swannanoa Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Beautiful secluded 1 bedroom apartment with private entrance and dedicated off street covered parking. Centrally located - only 10 minutes to Downtown Asheville and Biltmore Estates, 5 minutes Blue Ridge Parkway, 15 to 20 minutes to Lake Lure, Chimney Rock, Black Mountain

Fully equipped kitchen and dining area provides you the opportunity to enjoy light snacks, four course meals or a romantic take out for two. There are several major food stores close by for your shopping ease.

Wake up slowly and drink in the fresh mountain air with your morning coffee or tea. With the Mountain View and being nestled by trees at 'Holly Haven', these serene surroundings invite you to linger a little longer for a second cup.

Just relax in the cool NC Mountains or if you want to see the sites, you'll have a long list of activities to choose from as we provide literature in the apartment for your leisurely perusal. Nearby are very popular 'must see' film landmarks:

*Lake Lure - Original 'Dirty Dancing'

About Susan Hinz

As a world traveler having vast experience with staying in different types of accomodations, I wanted to provide the best of all worlds in Holly Haven. Creating a 'home away from home', Holly Haven has been designed to be a destination for traveling souls desiring a relaxing atmosphere.

Susan Hinz purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Susan Hinz chose Swannanoa

I've found all the natural beauties and open mindedness of Europe in Asheville! From the moderate climate, waterfalls and abundent nature to the cosmopolitan restaurants, ecclectic and down to earth people, Asheville area has it all in one place.

What makes this apartment unique

Peace, serenity and a retreat into nature at Holly Haven. So many activities are nearby or just stay in and get lost in the sweeping vista views of the mountains for hours.

Holly Haven was the perfect place for a weekend getaway weigh my husband. The accommodations were cozy, well priced, and BEAUTIFUL! I'd recommend it to any couple, and we will definitely be staying there should we ever visit Asheville again.

Wonderful Environment!

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at Holly Haven for 5 nights. It was very clean and spacious. The coffee pot gave out the second day I was there and they had a replacement to me within hours! For those wanting to spend a good deal of time in downtown Asheville, you just need to know that it's about 20 minutes from Holly Haven. I personally liked the separation and didn't find the drive time a problem at all. The kitchen had all that I needed, the bed was comfortable and they had great wi-fi service.

Clean, Easy, Quiet, PERFECT

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay at Holly Haven. As usual the apartment was clean and neat. Easy drive to Asheville. The property manager is fast and eager to answer questions. We will always stay here for any trip to the Asheville area.

The space does NOT feel like a basement apartment - great windows for an open feeling. The property owner even left fresh baked banana bread- so kind!

Holly Haven: A wonderful place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time in the Asheville, NC area..our first trip there and really enjoyed our stay at Holly Haven. The apartment was easy to locate, super clean and the furniture in the living room and dining area was very comfortable. The kitchen was also very well appointed and we were able to cook a few meals in our apartment on several occasions. The property manager was very attentive and we enjoyed the fresh-baked banana bread upon our arrival after 10 hours of driving. We also really liked the Amish fireplace on those chilly mornings and evenings. The drive to downtown Asheville was never more than 18 minutes and we were very close to the Biltmore Estate for our afternoon tour which was amazing!

My only negative was the queen bed, which we found to be very soft and not very comfortable. Other than that one issue, we would gladly come back to visit and stay at Holly Haven.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review and so glad you enjoyed the Asheville Area and your stay at Holly Haven! Please let us know your bedding preference the next time you book and we can remove the queen size 'pillow top' layer from the mattress to make it less softer for your comfort. Our guests comfort is always our number one priority!!

Couples Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Over the Thanksgiving holiday my girlfriend and I stayed at this property. It was located atop a small hill secluded from the main road and we found it warm, inviting and clean. The owner even left fresh baked banana bread! There were basic kitchen utensils (plates, cups, pots and silverware) as well as a microwave, coffee maker and toaster. We really enjoyed our stay there - the Amish fireplace was great to have for the early morning chill. It was only about 20 minutes from downtown Asheville and several minutes less to the Biltmore Estate; ten minutes from the entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway. We would recommend this property to anyone who was looking to get away for a relaxing weekend in the mountains.
