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!

This rental was a beautiful home at the VERY top of a mountain. The drive up the mountain was admittedly not for the feint of heart, but was exhilarating and added to the overall excitement of the weekend. The spectacular views from the top of course more than warrant the drive, but renters should be cautious if inclement weather is expected.
The home itself is truly beautiful and very well stocked. Everything, including electronics, cookware, beds, firewood and whatnot were all of fantastic quality and well kept. (ie. Bose, blu-ray, etc.) You can tell the owners take pride in this property.
We were surprised to find a fantastic ping pong table, and foosball table in the basement as well, which certainly made the men in our group happy.
This rental would be absolutely perfect for a large family getaway.
A beautiful house with even more beautiful views! Simply AWESOME! The owner was fantastic. Everyone in our group was just blown away. I can't imagine a better place to stay. If I could give it 10 stars I would! Can't wait to go back!
Our stay was absolutely wonderful! This house has everything you need (games, movies, kitchen supplies, etc.) and the most amazing view! The pictures do not capture the depth and beauty of how much you can see from the house. Yes, it's a steep climb up but so worth it! We will definitely stay here again!
My sister stayed here two years ago and couldn't say enough about the view. Well, she was right! We didn't leave the mountain top! The view is out of this world. You are literally surrounded by mountains!The cabin was perfect. The rooms were perfect. The fireplace was grand. The kitchen had everything we needed. And the owner is readily accessible! She does everything she can to make your stay perfect.
Cabin was as described and very comfortable. Views were unbelievable! No complaints! The only surprise was the steepness of the road going up! If you met someone coming down on the narrow roads, it would be a little tricky but we'll worth the drive! Drive can be a little intimidating but again, we'll worth the drive!
We have been doing girls weekend for 8 years and this is THE best house we've had! The house was clean, the beds were comfy and the house had plenty of room for us not to feel on top of each other. There was one problem... we didn't want to be in the house or for that matter, leave the house. The outside view was spectacular and stunning! We spent as much time on the deck as the weather would allow. We felt like we were on top of the world! Love the fact there are no trees blocking our view and you can see mountains from the front and back of the cabin. Great house, great time with friends, will definitely be renting this one again!
