GREAT HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
The house was fantastic. Even better than than the pictures show. House is a 15-20 min cab ride to downtown Asheville and there was no problem getting a cab to the house despite it's relatively remote location. If you want to go downtown all the time, then maybe this house isn't for you. But if you don't mind a cab ride and want to have a little more privacy and enjoy the nature then this house checks the box. The previous reviews didn't disappoint as Frank supplied us with fresh baked bread and wonderful eggs upon arrival. We had a great time, I'd recommend this house for all types of occasions.

GIRL'S BIRTHDAY WEEKEND

Girl's Birthday Weekend
  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic weekend getaway at The Huntley. The home is beautifully furnished and the beds are heavenly, especially the swinging beds on the porch. It was a cold weekend, so the fireplace was cozy. Frank was very accomodating and recommended Rebecca, a local masseuse, who came to the house and gave us massages. Best massage I have ever had. This was a wonderful "staycation" for us.

NOT KEEPING UP THE PROPERTY

  • 3 of 5
When this house was new, my daughter stayed here and gave it a good review. However, 3 yrs. later, the property is not being properly maintained. Don't get me wrong the property could be very nice with a few changes. When we arrived the first thing we noticed was how dirty the outside area was, and this is a shame because there is a wonderful outside fireplace, but the cushions on the furniture were so worn and dirty, they weren't usable. All needed to be replaced. The wrought iron furniture was rusting. The lid on the hot tub, was in shambles, and the tub itself did not look very clean. The inside is nice enough, but light bulbs were out, shower heads were flimsy, floors in the kitchen area weren't clean, overall it needed a really good cleaning. Also, there are no closets for clothes in the house. However, I will have to say that the kitchen itself was equipped much better than any place I have stayed in the past. The owner is a very nice gentleman, and the warm bread was a great addition upon arrival. Fresh eggs were good to. I would not recommend going during a rainy season because the back of the house backs up to a large hill which shows signs of giving way. Definitely, a retainer wall needs to be built behind the house. The screened in porch, as well as the waterfall were wonderful additions. All in all we had a good stay, and with some maintenance issues being addressed, this could be a great vacation spot. I forgot to mention that if you have several vehicles, you will have a hard time finding any way to park them. There is only room for about 2 cars and then it is very hard to turn them around. Driveway needs some work.

TREETOP OASIS

  • 5 of 5
Several family members (5 adults) rented this charming house while in Asheville for a wedding. The house is nestled in a quiet hillside neighborhood but is completely private. All of the amenities listed exceeded expectations. My favorite part was sleeping each night in the swinging beds on the screened in porch, with the sound of crickets and the nearby waterfall to lull me to sleep. Frank, host, gave a great welcome (complete with freshly laid eggs) and a thorough run down of all the house's bells and whistles. The only oddity is that there are no closets in the house. Overall it was an amazing stay and would highly recommend this home.

PERFECT GIRL TRIP HOME!

  • 5 of 5
We 5 women from Oregon have nothing but praise for The Huntley and Frank's hospitality!
The house smelled wonderfully of fresh baked bread upon our arrival, and we feasted on the fabulous eggs provided. The screened in porch was perfect for our evening card games, and we fell asleep to the sounds of the waterfall.
We loved the lush bathrobes and towels, the well stocked kitchen, and Frank's willingness to arrange horseback riding (also 5 stars with Annie!), tickets for the Biltmore, and more.Everything was as promised in the description, and we would highly reccomend any of Frank's properties. ( He gave us a tour of 2 others.) It was easy driving to tourist destinations in all directions.
Plus he was just a phone call away when we got lost!
Hope we can return again some day.

BEAUTIFUL HOME IN THE MOUNTAINS

  • 5 of 5
A group of friends from Charleston came to Asheville for a weekend getaway. The house was awesome in pictures, but even better in person!! The beds are so comfortable, kitchen is equipped with everything you could need, and the hot tub is amazing. As an added bonus, we were greeted to fresh bread and farm eggs, which were both excellent. We enjoyed our weekend stay and plan to be back again!!
