AMAZING VACATION! AMAZING GET AWAY!

I have to start by saying WOW! Pictures could never do this place justice.
This was our very first time renting a home. Someone else's home. So we had no idea what to expect. The owners of the property were extremely helpful and kind. They made sure all our questions were answered and that all are needs were met. The house is MAGNIFICENT! A true gem hidden away in a small town. Every detail and comfort was thought of. The huge vaulted ceilings the two sided fire place. The love and care that is put into this home is evident. You can't help but feel at home. To look out the window and see a herd of cattle is indescribable and it is quite amusing how when you walk down the path they stare at you quite intensely.
We were a family of 13 ranging in age from 60+ to 7 every single one of us had a phenomenal time. If you want to just get away, disconnect, relax and take in the outdoor this is your spot. We will definitely be back. Oh and where else can you go and see a baby calf be born right in front of you? AMAZING!!!

Wonderful lasting memories made!

A great place to make some wonderful lasting memories! The house was well appointed, comfortable and a perfect fit for our family of eleven. To be able to fit all eleven around the table to share a meal, reminisce, and celebrate being together is a cherished experience! The property and house are breathtaking - no detail has been overlooked. We enjoyed fishing, visiting with the animals, and just relaxing on the deck that overlooks the pastures, the large pond, and mountains. We visited Asheville, Lake Lure, and Lake James all within a 30 - 35 minute scenic ride of Double Down Ranch. The Owner of the property was a delight to work with, making sure our every need was met and then some! This was truly one of the best rental experiences we've ever had. We look forward to returning to Double Down Ranch in the future!

My family and I spent a week at the Double Down Ranch. The house was spectacular, very spacious and set up to handle a large group of people. The kitchen was furnished with everything you could need to prepare great meals. The kids loved feeding the horses and fishing. It is a very tranquil setting, feels remote, but is within reasonable driving distance to many hiking trails and other tourist attractions. Elizabeth was very easy to deal with and I believe truly tried to make our stay pleasant and memorable. Definitely a great place to stay!

Double Down Ranch was absolutely fantastic. The house is spacious, beautifully decorated and filled with everything you will need for any length of time. There is so much to enjoy right on the property. The kids loved being up close to all of the animals. They really enjoyed fishing in the private lake.
There are many activities to do in the surrounding areas. We enjoyed horseback riding, gem mining, zip lining, Grandfather mountain, The Biltmore, & Lake James. We had a fantastic trip & made great memories at Double Down Ranch. We would love to come back again.

Our stay at Double Down Ranch was a TRUE family vacation. Not only is the property a perfect place for a family get-away...with horses, goats, cats, fish, cattle and 200+ acres to hike, what's not to love...but the ranch home itself is a very special place. We (a family of 5) went with another family of 5 and a family of 3 and had more than enough room! The house is warm and inviting in design. And as if all that was not enough, we had cornhole, games, movie, music and the best part...bonfires and s'mores! The location is perfect for day trips to Asheville and Lake James but we never left the property! A truly specal vacation and we will be back.
