This house was built for a family member to live in, once the owners pass away. We are, however, renting it as a vacation rental until the house is needed full-time. So this house will eventually be used/lived in full-time.

Tammy purchased this house in 2011

This house wasn't bought, but was built new in 2011. The power was turned on June 2011. The area of Arden, where it's located, is south of Asheville and only 5 minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway, 10 minutes to Asheville City Limits and 25 minutes to the Biltmore Estate. So it's close to two major attractions!

Yes we have wildlife at Chestnut Cove! Deer frequently come through the yard, as well as through the corn field below the house. Also, you can look at the beautiful horses next door, listen to birds during the day rocking in the rocking chairs on the front deck or listen to tree frogs from the hot tub at night!

FABULOUS RETREAT.

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have stayed at Chestnut Cove twice. The house was very clean both times. The kitchen is well stocked with cookware and utensils that you might need to fix a meal. We fixed several meals each time we stayed. We ate breakfast several times on the front porch and watched the sun break through the fog. While the house is not totally secluded, there is a lot of privacy. There are no neighbors in back and the neighbors to each side are not close. The front porch is fabulous in the morning and evening for watching deer and the resident horses. We will definitely rent this house again. It is a short drive to a lot of hiking trails, shopping, and grocery stores.

WONDERFUL RENTAL

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I decided to visit family near Asheville and found this house almost instantly. The biggest draw at first was that it was only a few minutes from where my mother lives but were very impressed with the house once we arrived. Everything was clean and in great condition. A circuit ended up blowing due to lightning one night and was repaired early the next day while we were out. There was no incovienence to us at all. We will likely be making this trip every year or two years and will likely be staying here again.

PERFECT PLACE FOR A GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I and our twin 1 year old babies recently stayed here for 5 nights. It was a perfect place to relax! The home is beautiful and spotless! Its very easy to feel comfortable here. After a 14 hr drive from NY it was such a relief to walk into this home!We were so happy to be able to pull into the attached garage to unload our truck instead of being in the pouring rain. Once in the house we felt like we were the first people staying there- everything was clean and perfectly organized. The recliners in the living room and the bed in the master bedroom were super comfy! The house is in a perfect location for visiting all the surrounding attractions. Its set way back off the road with a beautiful view! There are even horses in the field next to the property and an occasional deer passing through the corn. The house has a kitchen with most everything you would need and there is a grocery store approx. 2 miles from the home. The house's front proch is a great feature. It has a hottub and part of the porch is covered which made it possible for us to enjoy the view even during the rain (it rained everyday on our vacation at least for a little while). I can't even count how many times my husband and I said how thankful we were to be in this house instead of a hotel room!!! The open concept of the home is another great feature especially with small children. We would definately recommend this property to anyone who was planning to stay in the asheville/hendersonville area and we can't wait to go back!

AWESOME PLACE, HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT.

  • 5 of 5
My mom, cousin & I stayed for 5 nights. We loved it. The house was clean, and what was indicated on the initial contact from the ower that was supplied was correct. We loved the peaceful relaxing time we spent there. Close enough to the attractions but far enough away to actually relax. We spent mornings on the porch (awesome porch) watching the sunrise and the deer. Most days we saw deer, and three out of the 5 days we saw two baby deer playing in the backyard. I also saw a bob cat in the lower field the last night we were there. And if you are into watching birds there were alot of birds to see. I highly recomend this place. I hope someday to go back to the area and stay again. It was like a home away from home. Great place. We also recommend the Moose Cafe at the Farmers market. They had great home cooked meals. And the pizza place not far from the place has awesome ribs.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your compliment about the house being clean and I am so glad you all had such a good time. Yes, Chestnut Cove is centrally located being closer to Asheville but not a bad drive to Hendersonvill. So you can relax at the house but be close enough to the action to get to it in a short time. The wildlife there is quite abundant and is rather amazing to have in a developed area. I'm glad to hear Avery's Creek Pizza 'n Ribs was good - it's one of my family's favorite "down the road" eateries. I do hope all my guests will want to return to Chestnut Cove in their future. It's one of those rare "to itself" kind of places.

A GREAT HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
This house was wonderful. Everyhing we needed, expected the house to have, was there. It was extremely clean and came across as well maintained. The photos of the house were good, very accurate. Didn't do any extensive cooking, but what the kitchen offered was adequate for us. We were near Hendersonville and found the drive to Asheville not bad. The hot tub was great! After time out and about all day kind of chilled after being out in rain was wonderful. Having the garage made a difference with us due to all the rain we had while there. Other reviews for this house were accurate as well. There are signs here, but we've stayed in plenty of other vacation rentals and found some there too. We kind of take them with a grain of salt. There was just the two of us, but I think with the floor plan of this house even a family would be comfortable. We are keeping this house in mind for when we can return to Asheville. We definately will recommend this house to our friends who visit Asheville regularly.

GOOD BUT......

  • 2 of 5
First I'll say the place was clean and quiet, and the master bed was very comfortable. You'd think the rest wouldn't really matter, wouldn't you? But it's all the other "little" things that added up to us deciding we'll never stay here again.

First of all, we should have known what to expect from what we saw during the booking process. We had to send 100% of the rent up front, no contract to sign (which would have protected us too), and after sending payment, a FIVE page email was received which detailed everything we were required to do, and also the things we weren't allowed to. Upon arriving at the home we felt like we were back in sixth grade at camp and the camp leaders had signs up everywhere to control our behavior. Around this house were seventeen signs of what NOT to do, or orders of what we were supposed to do. Yes, seventeen, and at least half of them were framed and hanging on the wall. My favorite was the one explaining what the fan in the bathroom was for, and when/how it was to be used. There were not enough towels in the home for the two of us to use during our three day stay, we had to run the washer once. For each of us there was one bath towel, one washcloth, and one face towel. That's it! NO OTHER towels were in either bathroom. Speaking of bathrooms, the second bathroom didn't have any towels whatsoever, and there wasn't even a roll of toilet paper on the roll. Really? They can't even equip each bathroom with basic essentials? Ok, on to the kitchen. The dishes in the cabinet were for the most part ALL dirty. Each glass we used had to be inspected first and rinsed out. This is what happens when the guests are REQUIRED to put all the dishes back in the cabinet before departing after their stay (or be fined a cleaning fee). People are in a hurry to leave and don't want to go to the effort to suds up a few items, so they likely get the quick rinse and put away. The common protocol from all the other homes I've rented is you load and run the dishwasher before you leave, and the owner/cleaning crew puts it away. The cookware was absolutely disgusting!! NONE of the pans were acceptable to use, but we found an 8-inch skillet that didn't wasn't caked up with old food residue that we were able to cook a few things with. There was no cookie sheet in the home, not even a broiler pan. If you're going to stay here, bring ALL the cookware you need including knives, cutting boards, pans etc.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your initial compliments. I do not know who set the precedent vacation rental owners and managers accepted deposits. Deposits actually keep one person from being paid in full for time supplied in full. We are unlike the hotel industry which makes profit on daily volume. Vacation rental owners receive only a few reservations per month. Guidelines convey expected treatment for a house and protects the renter in that respect keeping them from being charged for the abuse of something otherwise. Being of a certain age or financial status does not place you above being given or following guidelines, and means nothing concerning the approach in respectful treatment of anything. If you are capable of writing such an angry review on truly minor things, when all else was fine, and you chose not to call the managers, you have no right to verbally crucify the managers for a situation you chose not to give them the chance to rectify. Therefore, it is obvious to everyone reading your review that you wanted to complain. My phone number is located on my listing, confirmation and at the vacation rental. Stated plainly on the confirmation is a list of provisions, also to contact me if you need anything. No amount of money obtains perfection. Even from the most expensive hotels and vacation rentals eventually some guest some time is going to find something that needs tending and replacing. To not understand and not accept that is naive. If I failed to notice something left behind by the dishwasher or past guests, I apoligise and know it would never be left on purpose. Confirmations are extensive due to a whole page of helpful websites, helpful list of nearby places to eat, and other helpful information. A lot of things in life are subjective. My word and other positive reviews state the contrary to what these past guests wrote. There are now new dishes, glasses, frying pans, silverware, new bigger cutting board, pots already there were in new condition. Frying pans were worn, not dirty. One phone call would have fixed everything. I really do not bite, really, and I do care that all my guests have a pleasant stay.
