NOT MANY VIEWS LIKE THIS LEFT! 10 RANGES, ALMOST HEAVEN 3000FT

Old Fort House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

We named our mountain home “Almost Heaven” because when we are there, that is exactly what it feels like to us. At 3,000 feet in elevation, we are close to the stars at night, to the clouds by day and we are witness to gorgeous sunrises and sunsets all year long. When the summer heat is burning up the low lands we have fresh, cool breezes and even sweater weather in the evenings. We look out 40 miles to Mt. Mitchell in the north, ten mountain ranges to where the sun sets in the west and 60 miles to a flat line in the south. We are surrounded by nature, astronomy and meteorology, yet we are a short 35 minute drive to Biltmore House and the excellent restaurants of downtown Asheville, and 20 minutes from Black Mountain and its quaint shops, restaurants, and gigantic grocery stores. We hear the wind in the leaves and catch the sweet smell of Rhododendron and Mountain Laurel in the springtime; we pick wild blackberries in the summer and listen to songbirds all day. We frequently encounter deer, wild turkey and even bobcats, yet we live in a modern, luxurious home with a gourmet kitchen, satellite TV, instant hot water, wonderful beds and mattresses, and windows everywhere to frame the beauty that is all around us. Our home is built for both togetherness and privacy: the family room has a monumental stone fireplace surrounded by leather sofas, the covered side porch serves as an outdoor dining area, the basement offers ping-pong and Foosball tables and three-quarters of the home is surrounded by decks and rockers – while every one of the four bedrooms has its own private porch for personal conversation or quiet reading time away from the larger group. It is the best of all worlds: natural, yet very civilized; remote yet convenient; private yet communal. It is Almost Heaven. We would love to share it with you!

Keywords: House, beauty, 3000 ft, views, Mt. Mitchell, sunsets, vistas, waterfall, Easy drive to Asheville. Private, modern, luxury.

Spectacular

  • 5 of 5
Spend a lovely week week there with my fiancee and 3 kids. Plenty of room. The views were truly spectacular! Well furnished and equipped. Amazing home in a wonderful gated community. Close to Black Mountain, Chimney Rock, Ashville, Biltmore, horseback riding, hiking, etc. The recommendations and information from the owners about dining and activities were spot on. This was our first time in the area, but certainly will not be the last! Exceeded even my high expectations!

Perfect view

  • 5 of 5
By far the best views around. Cabin was great though there were some internet issues but tht didn't matter at all. Don't try the drive in winter weather way to steep but at any other time it's worth the drive up the mountain.

Great Family Spring Break Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful mountain home with breathtaking views! There was plenty of room for my family of four and my parents. The kitchen was well equipped and my seven year old daughter enjoyed the Ping pong table and foosball table in the basement. The owner is really easy to work with. There's so much to see and do around this area.

NOT Almost Heaven, this IS Heaven

  • 5 of 5
This was our best VRBO experience ever! The home was perfect in every way. The kitchen was better equipped than my own home. The view---OH MY GOSH. This is the place Christmas card makers come for the perfect setting. The ONLY drawback was the steep drive in. Excellent roads until the very end, but I would not want to be there if there was any prediction of icy weather. Large, comfortable, clean, well maintained inside and out in every respect. No short-cuts in craftsmanship, furnishings, or equipment. Be aware that the drive to Asheville can take the better part of an hour.
