Overview

Swannanoa House Rental Photos and Description

2,800 sf treehouse, 7 private acres.

Perched high on the side of a mountain at the end of a pristine, forested drive, with tree lined views from every room.

An amazing natural stone wall welcomes you to a beautifully decorated living room, offset by a wood burning fireplace visible from the living and dining areas.

A separate dining room makes you feel as though you're suspended into the trees, proving an amazing view. A large dining table provides seating for up to 10.

The master bedroom on the main floor features a king bed, large flat screen television, and a master bath with a large tile shower, double sinks, granite counter top and two walk-in closets. A second bedroom features a cozy king bed and large flat screen tv, and shares a full bath with a third bedroom with a twin daybed which converts to a queen bed.

A large family room is located on the lower level/walk-out basement and features a wood burning stove encased in a large brick fireplace, comfortable queen size sofa bed, and 55 inch flat screen Smart television.

A fourth bedroom is also on this floor with two twin beds, which can be pushed together to make a king, as well as a full bath with a tub/shower.

All four bedrooms have wonderful tree line views. Just lie in bed and enjoy the view.

Enjoy preparing meals in the fully equipped, gourmet kitchen, which includes full size, stainless steel appliances and lots of great cooking equipment. A pub table with two chairs sits at one end of the kitchen – because we know everyone loves to be in the kitchen.

The large deck is complete with a gas BBQ grill, patio chairs and an outdoor dining table and is completely private for the perfect place to relax while you listen to the sounds of the creek flowing down the mountain.

A don't forget to take in the view from the fantastic new hot tub - it's great!

(While no smoking is allowed inside the house, we provide sand buckets outside should you wish to smoke on the deck).

Completely furnished for style and comfort, the house will accommodate up to 10 people.

Get the best of mountain, luxury living and the fabulously, eclectic and fun Asheville vibe!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was a great house. I would recommend to anyone. Was perfect for 3 couples, everyone had their own room and bathroom and privacy. Hope to rent again for future trips to Asheville!

Wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time celebrating my niece's 30th birthday at this house. There were 9 adults and the house was great. The owners have thought of everything. The towels were thick and there were plenty of them, everyone commented on how comfortable their bed was, the sheets were wonderful. The owners provide washing pods, coffee is complimentary. The house is immaculate and the views are beautiful. We had a small glitch with the circuit breaker and we lost power an hour and a half before the Super Bowl! I called the owners and they walked us through resetting and we were good to go! I highly recommend this for a getaway. Would love to come back.

Everything Was Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Can't go wrong with this place. Beautiful house tucked in the mountains. Feels very private, but your are only minutes away from grocery and 15 min from downtown (close enough for taxi service if needed). We loved the hot tub and wood burning fireplace. House is very nicely decorated and immaculately maintained. Will visit again. Hopefully soon.

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house for 3 nights for a birthday celebration. There were 8 adults. We have done many VRBO rentals and this is one of the best. The owners have thought of everything! The beds were so comfortable, the linens were amazing, there were plenty of towels. They even supplied coffee and creamer and laundry detergent. We had a power failure right before the Super Bowl and I called the owners, they answered immediately and walked us how to reset the breaker. This house has beautiful views and feels remote but there is easy access to a nice grocery store. The fireplace has great draw and is beautiful. Over all a great experience and another great family memory for us. Thank you.

Perfect Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great stay at the Asheville Treehouse. Highlights were family meals at the large dining table, the super comfortable beds and linens and the coziness of the home. It was perfect for our 4 kids and 4 adults. We had plenty of space and the location was great. The owners were kind enough to give us some local insight via email before we arrived and we took a few of their suggestions. We would definitely stay there again!

Fairview Forest is an exclusive, private community on the side of Arrowhead Mountain, 15 minutes from downtown Asheville.

Local coffee and fresh baked goods, fresh cheeses and more, can be found at Troyer’s Country Amish Blatz, just at the bottom of the mountain. And if you’d like an espresso, venture just a couple of miles further to Mountain Mojo for even more fresh baked goods and self-serve savory foods. You’ll be 5 minutes from a major grocery chain (Food Lion), as well as great food at The Local Joint, Piazza, Trout Lily Healthy Mini Market, and Pizza and More on 74. A complete list and menus will be waiting for you when you arrive.

Asheville offers so much! Incredible galleries, the best dining, arts, and live entertainment, the Blue Ridge Parkway, and the world famous Biltmore House and Gardens and Winery and Grove Park Inn & Spa and Golf Resort.

Other area attractions and activities include the quaint town of Weaverville, the 435-acre North Carolina Arboretum, the Pisgah National Forest (mountain biking, swimming, hiking), horseback riding, balloon rides, skiing at Wolf Laurel, relaxing at the historic Hot Springs Spa, Harrah’s Cherokee Casino, Chimney Rock Park, Grandfather Mountain, the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad, and, of course, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

We’ve also got lots of personal favorite spots in the area we would be happy to share with you.

In winter months, a four-wheel drive is recommended in case of snow.
