I moved to Asheville after living in NYC for 11 years, Originally from Chattanooga, TN, I needed to come home to the south - but not just 'anywhere' would do after the Big Apple. After doing a lot of research and visiting Asheville a number of times, I knew this would be my home for the rest of my life.

Gwen Croft purchased this house in 2011

After living closer in West Asheville, I decided I really wanted to experience the meaning and have a closer relationship with the mountains. I had been looking for the right property for a couple of years. This one just knocked my socks off the minute I saw it. The air felt clearer, my spirit felt lighter - it just felt like a place that I could share with friends, but enjoy solitude.

The mountains have their own personality. Their 'mood changes daily, sometimes hourly. Sometimes the sky is clear and the sun reveals every nook and cranny with its clear light. Other times, especially in the mornings or after a rain, interesting shapes of fog and mist hang over the mountains. It's just a delight to experience the subtle yet perpetual changes the mountains provide.

WONDERFUL ESCAPE!

  • 5 of 5
My son and I needed a weekend to spend together before moves out of the country. We could not have found a better place to stay. The house was spotless, the views were amazing and Gwen went beyond the call of duty to make our trip everything we needed. It was just far enough from Asheville to fill remote and private, but it was a short drive into town. We walked all over Asheville and checked out all the breweries! I would love to stay here again and would recommend it to anyone.

Owner's Response: Thanks Gay! I enjoyed meeting you - a fellow Keller Williams agent. I hope we meet again soon. Good luck to your handsome son in his move to New Zealand.

MARCH GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent a long weekend here and thoroughly enjoyed what Gwen had to offer. The entire apt was beautiful and clean with updated appliances and furniture! The tv set with many DVDs and Netflix was a wonderful addition. It was wonderful having a kitchen well stocked with with plates, cups and plenty of serving utensils. We really enjoyed grilling and enjoying our meal with a wonderful view of the mountains. The view was marvelous even though we had a lot of overcast days. We were away from the city far enough to view the lights only at night from the deck, but close enough that we had easy access to get to everything. We surely will try to come back if we decide to visit Asheville again!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind review!

While I lived there, I found that sometimes the overcast days were as interesting as the clear days. I spent a great deal of time just sitting on the deck and watching all the different "moods" of the sky and mountains. If it had just been a little warmer for you, I'm sure you would have enjoyed that a lot too.

Just to clarify, this is a 3 story home, not an apartment. I use to rent the downstairs (lowest level and completely separate) and lived in the top 2 levels. I recently moved and started renting the main level with one bedroom full bath and half bath (which accommodates one couple) and will soon be adding the second bedroom and full bath on the top floor which will accommodate two couples sharing one kitchen, living room, 3 decks and all.

I still have the downstairs unit and have it rented for the entire month of August, but the upstairs is available during that time. I haven't figured out a way to show all that in the rates yet. Still working through that.

But rest assured, when you stay at my Mountain Vista, I will do everything possible to help you have a very happy visit!

I"m so glad you enjoyed your visit Becky and hope you and Cliff will be back soon!

WINTER RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Gwen's Mountain View Retreat in the middle of January with the hopes of seeing snow (my fiance' is a native Floridian and has never seen snow). We arrived and were pleasantly suprised by the breath-taking view from the front porch. The accomodations were comfy, and the whole unit (thankfully) warmed up quickly when the heat was turned on. Location-wise, we were only about 10-15 minutes from Downtown Asheville and maybe 15-20 min from the front gate of the Biltmore Estate. During our stay it did actually snow, both at the house and in the city. But a word of caution to anyone not familiar with driving in the snow, the road to get the house has one section that has a bit of a steep grade, so make sure your vehicle has some kind of traction control to make the ascent a little easier. There was a about an inch or two of snow on the ground and we made it with just a little difficulty in a 2013 Malibu. Other than that we had a wonderful time, we definitely hope to make it back to see another season!!

Owner's Response: Glad I could make that snow happen for you ;-) Of course, there is always some risk driving in the snow. Luckily, when it snows around here it doesn't stay for very long at all, as you noticed. Here one day and gone the next (and sometimes the same day!). Do come back and see the fall colors or the clear, crisp summers!

GREAT VIEWS

  • 4 of 5
The view from the room was SPECTACULAR! Sunrise was gorgeous!! The house was only 20 minutes from anything in Asheville that we wanted to do, which was good because we spent the second day out of the house due to some heating issues that were being attended to. Owner was really quick to respond to our need for help with heat at the house and made sure we were informed of progress during the day. It is definitely a great place to go to escape the rush and is set up off of the main roads. 100x better than any view you would get at a hotel.

YOU MUST RENT HERE

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed here for our anniversary and it was great. The condo was everything listed and more. The condo comes with everything you need for a peaceful get away. We wanted to relax and see the town and this place does both. It is very easy to get to, near the interstate, and very close to just about anything in Asheville. Also, the views are amazing. Our first morning we saw 2 hot air balloons take off! The sunrises and sunsets are amazing. I have been to the mountains before and these views are by far the best I have ever seen. You must rent from Gwen!
