3 SUITES WITH PRIVACY AND GREAT MOUNTAIN VIEWS NEAR ASHEVILLE

Asheville House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Come to Knob View Retreat and enjoy a relaxing vacation in this beautiful home with views out every window. The home has 3 bedroom suites, each with private ensuite bath and closet, perfect for the extended family or couples who enjoy vacationing together. Two of the suites have their own private covered porch to enjoy the refreshing mountain air and views and those glorious sunsets.

The house is located in the Blue Ridge Mountains at 2900 feet elevation within a small mountain community containing only 7 houses on 70 acres.

Privacy abounds and so does the wildlife (please don't shoot the turkeys that wander through).

Enjoy a relaxing stay on the porch or drive just 12 miles to downtown Asheville and enjoy shopping and restaurants in the 'Paris of the South'. The town of Black Mountain is just 9 miles in the other direction. Spend a day at the Biltmore Estate (13 miles) or go hiking on any of the miles of trails just minutes away. Want to drive the Blue Ridge Parkway? An entrance is just 10 minutes away.

Our house has beds to accommodate 6 adults or combination of adults and children totaling 6 people. With advance notice we can arrange for a crib or pack and play. No more than 6 people.

The last mile of road to the house is a gravel road which climbs 400 feet in elevation. A 4 wheel or all wheel drive vehicle is not necessary but would be helpful. Front wheel drive vehicles with a low gear will get you there. Electric and hybrid vehicles with a CVT transmission or other transmissions without a low gear or other low HP vehicles are not advisable.

I am a real estate broker serving the WNC mountains area. Previously I served 9 years in the Army and spent 20 years writing computer software. We have lived in the Asheville area for 10 years and love it here. This house was our personal home until September 2011 when we moved into the second home that I've built. We love this home so much we decided to share it with others as a vacation rental. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did the 5 years we lived there.

Michael White purchased this house in 2006

We didn't buy a vacation rental, we converted our own home when we moved. We built our home in this location because it is a beautiful site with privacy and mountain views but yet just minutes to everything one needs.

I enjoy the privacy and quite, you can hear the birds chirping, the squirrels rustling through the leaves, and the wind blow. At dusk the sunsets over the mountain range are to die for. At night the crickets will sing you to sleep. And of course the mountain views everywhere you look! Ahhhhh

Mountain Trip was Fun even for the Steep Journey Up to It

  • 5 of 5
My group had a great time catching up in this mountain house. The view and quality of the house was very nice. I would definitely look at renting again since it was a good price for what you're getting once you're able to reach the house and the owners were pretty responsive and honest.

Recommendations for future guests: First, there was literally not a single thing wrong with the house at all. I felt like this is worth noting. The road is definitely about 3 miles of gravel road up a mountain. If you stay on the gravel, you shouldn't have a problem. I drove a 2 door Honda Accord up it twice with front wheel drive only, but I have some experience driving up gravel hills. There is space in the driveway for about 4 cars if you squeeze them in btw. Some of my friends tried to go up some dirt, non-gravel roads somewhere on that mountain when they were lost trying to find the house. DO NOT DO THAT. Not sure where they were on the mountain, but it was definitely a road not meant to be driven on (almost got a 4 wheel drive SUV stuck). Luckily they gave up and assumed it wasn't the correct way and backed up (the path forks about 2-3 times before you get up to the house, but my GPS was pretty accurate up to the final fork like .8 miles away). Not a large complaint once you get there and settled in, but I could see people having trouble with it. We went during a beautiful 70 degree day, so no big deal for us and would deal with it again. It probably would've been pretty stressful if it was raining or something and trying to navigate it, though.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay and found the house to be a good value. I would like to correct some items in your review. First there is not 3 miles of gravel road, it is 1 mile. The last "fork" (actually a turn onto the road with a street sign) is not .8 mile, it is 800 feet. Finally, I send very specific directions so guests do not have to rely on GPS as GPS can lead you astray.

We had such a lovely time at Knob View. Could not have imagined a nicer vacation. Awesome view, beautiful home, and first class amenities. Everything went smoothly, as easy as pie. Thank you, thank you, thank you, for allowing us to experience life in the mountains with all the area has to offer.

Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Traveled from Florida to spend an enjoyable long weekend with friends from Greensboro. We had a great time and the house was perfect. It allowed us (3 couples) to have privacy, when needed, as the home essentially has 3 on-suites. The home is nicely appointed with comfortable beds and the kitchen has everything one needs (nice appliances, dishes and cutlery). The views are spectacular. Don't worry about the road up, it wasn't as bad as you might anticipate. One couple in our group drove up in a Camry and made it! I will certainly stay here again if I get back North!

Awesome cabin

  • 5 of 5
My sister and her friend come down from the north and I come up from the south to spend a week together. This cabin was a perfect home base for us. Having 3 full bathrooms is a plus. The views from the deck are amazing. The cabin is very clean and well stocked. Having read past reviews we were nervous about the driveway but it posed no problem at all even after some heavy rain. We give the cabin 5 stars and are looking forward to coming back sometime next year.
