SPECTACULAR MOUNTAIN VIEWS FROM THE FRONT PORCH ROCKERS AND BACK DECK HOT TUB

Wolf Laurel House Rental Photos and Description

2 1/2 bedroom, 2 bath, Mountain Views, Hot Tub

If you are looking to spend time in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains look no further!

This peaceful getaway is nestled between mature pines and wooded lots at the end of the paved driveway. From the front covered porch you can relax in the wooden rockers and watch the morning sunrise while you enjoy your coffee. At night there is nothing more relaxing than watching the moon dance with the stars from the 5-person hot tub on the back deck.

This property has all the amenities of home. Including, a fully stocked kitchen, which includes new stainless steel GE appliances (Glass top range, refrigerator, microwave oven, and dishwasher). The kitchen is stocked with almost every amenity one could wish for including a Keurig coffeemaker, a Kitchen-Aid mixer, high-end stainless steel pots and pans, and table settings for up to six people. We make sure this kitchen is equipped as if it were our own.

A starter supply of coffee and tea are provided. Tissue & toilet paper, paper towels, bath soap, dish soap, laundry soap, blow dryer and many other amenities are available so you don’t feel pressure to immediately stock up on supplies. There's also an electric fireplace so you do not have to bother with wood or the smell of smoke yet still enjoy the ambience of a warm flame.

This home sleeps five adults comfortably with two bedrooms (queen size beds) and a multi-purpose room with a futon bunk-bed.

There is also a Bowflex complete fitness system located in the home. The Bowflex is the top-of-the-line machine and comes fully equipped. There is also a set of adjustable Bowflex dumbbells, workout manuals, CD, and I-Pod stereo system for use by the tenants.

Other amenities include Maytag Neptune washer and dryer, back deck patio set, rustic picnic table, two car garage, carport, and a small fenced in area with a doghouse for your furry companion. There is also a large pet crate available if needed.

No matter if you prefer spending your evenings sitting on the porch, listening to the wildlife and watching the sunset or lounging on the leather sofa watching cable TV (or DVD) and surfing the web over the Wi-Fi this home will ensure peace and quiet. This is a Great location for every season of the year and every hour of the day!

This beautiful cedar siding home is located just 25 minutes from downtown Asheville North Carolina. Within a 15-20 minute drive you can access the Wolf Ridge ski slopes, golfing (Mount Mitchell or Mountain Air), zip lines, the Blue-Ridge Parkway, gem mining, white-water rafting, horseback riding, and some of the most amazing hiking trails you’ve ever meandered. We hope you will fall in love with this home as much as we have over the years.

Guestbook comments from the owner
My colleagues and I have tried to work at hotel conference centers before, and had some success, but this location brought a whole other level to our synergy and productivity. The house is nestled in the trees and the quiet atmosphere is a perfect place to relax and re-energize. The layout of the house allowed for several different work spaces when we needed to divide tasks, but also allowed for us to meet in a comfortable common area. We all had our computers connected to Wi-Fi and were able to get so much accomplished! The owner is incredibly easy to work with and responded to our questions quickly. When we looked at the cost of a hotel conference center meeting room plus the cost of our hotel stays, this option was significantly more economical. We were able save money with our food budgets as well. The kitchen is well-equipped for food preparation. I also liked that it's within about a 10 minute drive into Burnsville where there are some lovely little shops and restaurants. The grocery store has a Starbucks! We will definitely be choosing this location again for our future work retreats. I'm even planning on using it as a family vacation spot.

My partner and I grew up in the mountains of Western North Carolina and Eastern Tennessee and fell in love with the area. I am a professor and my partner is an engineer. We have two daughters and feel so blessed to own property in what we both know to be the most beautiful open place we have ever visited. We love Asheville and hope you find as much joy in this house as we have over the years.

Less than expected.

  • 2 of 5
Area around Burnsville is lovely. We were hoping for a quiet week but neighbors below us decided to mow over the first two-three days. So difficult to read or work cross words or even speak to each other on front porch! House was clean. Place needs some maintenance- handrail along front & back steps wobbly. Back deck wearing out. Could use a paint job. Kitchen NOT as furnished as many others I've been at. Could use a scissors, a griddle for pancakes, and a regular coffee pot. Two pillows on bed in master bed room were disgustingly dirty! Mattresses in both bedrooms not in good shape. Re-tiling of bathrooms & kitchen are a nice update. Good T-V. Not here, but always nice to see a listing of what channels are available.
We would not recommend this house to others.

Owner's Response: Sandy,
We are very disappointed that you did not find our vacation home more than satisfactory. Guest satisfaction is our top priority. We have not had a negative review since we started doing this over a year ago and take our guests comfort very seriously. We make every effort to ensure that our guests feel at home. Regarding the mattresses, please note that the master bedroom has a fully functional Select Comfort mattress that can be adjusted to accommodate any desired level of firmness and is clearly noted. We did have our housekeeper inspect the pillows and agreed that they could be replaced (this has already been done). All of the kitchen amenities were listed in detail on our online listing. These could be viewed prior to renting if you had special needs. The NEW stainless steel appliances and premium Kitchen-Aid mixer and Keurig (which does have an attachment for regular coffee) along with everything else have all been very well received with other guests. The wooden decks were recently stained and evaluated for safety. This happens once per year. Also, there is a channel guide located in the welcome packet on the coffee table. This packet clearly states that if you find ANYTHING less than satisfactory to please contact us as soon as possible so that we can make our guests as comfortable as possible. In this instance we did not hear from you during your seven night stay. We have tried to contact you via phone and have not received a return call. We would appreciate an opportunity to discuss this stay directly.

Great mountain property. Very clean and well stocked. We enjoyed the front porch and back deck for cool morning breakfasts. Hot tub was a bonus.

Very Enjoyable!

  • 5 of 5
I would stay here again. This is a great location. Not far off the main road but far enough that you do not hear or view traffic. A peaceful view from the front and back porch with great sounds of birds and the wind in the trees. The landscaping is very nice as well. You can view the mountains while in the hot tub. The home has modern comfortable furnishings and everything you could possibly need. The home also has nice appliances with instant hot water and good air quality....NO SNIFFLING OR SNEEZING AT ALL and 3 out of 4 people in my family have allergies. This property is great for spending time on the Blue Ridge hiking, paddling, fishing, or shopping for art in the local area or going to Asheville as it is only ten minutes of easy driving to the interstate. We will stay here again.

Great Getaway!

  • 4 of 5
I went to Whispering Pines as a part of my birthday trip away from the city and to ski at Wolf Laurel. The house was very clean and had everything we needed to enjoy ourselves. Fully stocked kitchen and bathrooms were perks-as well as the hot tub. That hot tub was SO relaxing and to be able to look up at the stars at night while in it was an extra bonus. The property was nicely located about 20 minutes from the ski resort and 10 minutes from town to get anything you needed. The view was awesome too! Christ was great with answering questions in a very timely manner, which was a great thing :) I would recommend this to anyone in the area and love to come back in the future. Thank you!

Whispering Pines

  • 5 of 5
Whispering Pines is the perfect private getaway to watch the fall foliage finally fall from the trees. The guinea hens came to visit and complain every day. It even snowed while we were in the hot tub. We were able to take in a college football game in Mars Hill on a beautiful Saturday afternoon and we were able to sample restaurants both in Mars Hill and Burnsville. We also visited Spruce Pine (we recommend the Tropical Grill) and Mount Mitchell State Park. We enjoyed it here so much that we stayed an extra week. Chris is great to work with.

Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5
My spouse and I stayed here for a quiet weekend together before the holiday hecticness. We greatly enjoyed our stay to say the least. Whispering Pines is modern, quaint and has all the ammenities you could think of when traveling away from home (fresh towels, mixers, cups, trash bags, etc. etc.) The hot tub was very relaxing especially since it was cold and my hubby even took advantage of the workout equipment too. Owners are very good to work with and respond to inquiries quickly! We would definitely recommend Whsipering Pines to family & friends and hope to go back for a visit soon.
