About Ted Riskin

Fell in love with Asheville, Fairview, and this house, and had to buy it. Renovated it to add the Fairview Vacation Pad. I live downstairs on the main level. On the lower level is the supplemental apartment along with my workspace, which I use for my therapy practice and to offer workshops in Holotropic (and other) Breathwork and Core Energetics. I specialize in couples therapy, so feel free to inquire about possibilities for transforming your relationship while on your vacation.

Ted Riskin purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Ted Riskin chose Swannanoa

Asheville is the perfect town - big enough to entertain and feed you well, but small enough to be easily navigable. Fairview is the perfect access point for Asheville - an easy 20 minute drive from almost anywhere in town, but more affordable, cleaner, and more beautiful. The house was built with love and quality by a contractor who moved in with his family after completing it.

What makes this apartment unique

You have a private apartment without being stuck on your own in some cabin in the boonies. You can rent just the main 2 BR apartment, or you can add the downstairs supplemental apartment as well (additional cost is half of the main apartment). Staying downstairs involves climbing several flights of deck stairs to join the guests in the main apartment.

Girls Whitewater Kayaking Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I participated in "Creek Week", whitewater kayaking the NC creeks during the spring. Ted's place was only 20 minutes out of town and it fit our needs perfectly! We used the hot tub to soak our sore muscles each night with our glass of wine. We enjoyed the peaceful setting from the deck, took advantage of our kitchen (even though we're not good cooks), sunk into our comfy beds and loved all the gadgets Ted had available to us. Ted was very attentive to our needs and allowed us our private space as well. I loved the little touches he did as well - the Whole Foods soap, dishes I would use at home, the bathrobes rocked, the lights he has installed throughout, the big screen tv, movies, music and much much more! Thanks Ted!

girls weekend

  • 5 of 5

3 BFFs stayed at this VRBO and were very impressed. Hot tub with snow flakes falling as we enjoyed the ambience on the back deck. VERY comfortable beds.... great big screen TV with options for Netflicks, cable, DVD, wifi etc.

Many DVD's on hand to select from. Full kitchen with everything you would need. Beautiful views of the woods and mountain tops. 2 of us elected to experience Ted's Breathwork session in his professional studio. It was incredible!

I highly recommend experiencing this gorgeous setting!

Wonderful stay in a beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

I would like to thank Ted again for letting us use his house for our family's little vacation to watch the fall foliage. The house is beautiful and fully equipped with everything we need. We enjoyed waking up every morning, sipping coffee (by the way, the coffe tastes really good, smell great, and concentrated, not like an average Americano from a Keurig), looking out the window where all the trees were changing colors into red and yellow, having our family breakfast and then take a hike in the surrounding area. We also enjoyed the hot tub and the grill, which are ideal for cool/cold weather.

The house is within 20-25 mins driving to Asheville, which is very charming and offers many dining options. The house is also about 15-20 mins driving to many grocery stores, especially an Ingles where you can find almost anything you need to cook for the family. All in all, a great and relaxed stay.

Just perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Myself, my husband and two sons age 15 and 10 stayed at this rental from a Thursday to Mondayin mid October , and we wish it could have been longer because it was so lovely in every way.

The property is perfectly situated, only 20 mins from Asheville, it's part of a gorgeous house and property. The owner Ted seems to have thought of everything, it is compact yet perfect and comfortable and spotless. We felt so at home and enjoyed the beauty of the apartment as well as the surroundings, the opening of windows to let in the lovely cool fall air, we were all so glad we picked this place. Ted is super friendly and warm and helped us with his restaurant recommendations and even stayed up really late to greet us on the night we arrived. Also, much to my delight, I ralised through his website that Ted is also a psychotherapist specializing in many modalities , one of which is holotropic breathwork. I was very pleased to be able to do a session with him in his wonderful downstairs space of transformation before we left and I treasured the experience, he is kind, warm, knowledgeable, it was an amazing experience which I would love to repeat. All in all, a great stay at a great place with a wonderful owner, to top it off , we realized we had forgot a play station game and a dvd that my sons really liked and he promptly posted it to us.

Definitely me and my family would love and plan to return here to this transformational place some time, hopefully sooner rather than later!!!

My partner and I stayed in the supplemental apartment for ten days. It has a private entrance, the apartment is simple clean and elegant. The owner pays attention to detail. For instance, the shower has a tiled mosaic design, and there's a full sauna, with redwood interior. We were very comfortable, the place has a lovely, intimate feeling. The apartment is situated on quiet mountain road; a beautiful setting.
