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

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.

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.

Perfect hideaway in the hills

  • 5 of 5
The Fairview Pad was the perfect getaway for my husband and me. Ted has thought of every detail. We ate breakfast each day at the apartment before heading out. We used the hot tub while staring up at the full moon. On our final night, we broke out the gas grill and prepared steaks for dinner.

My mother-in-law has recently moved into an assisted living facility nearby. Our visit was somewhat stressful because of health situations with her, and it was so nice to come back to our woodland hideaway each evening.

One morning, I needed to catch up on emails, so I set up my laptop on the deck and the wi-fi signal was strong and steady. Working with that beautiful view didn't feel like work at all.

I initially booked the supplemental room intending to stay only the weekend for a workshop in Asheville but the location, accommodations and nature setting were perfect and I decided to stay three more nights to enjoy them all. Ted is a personable and flexible host who makes himself available while at the same time providing as much privacy and quiet as one needs. Getting to and from Asheville venues was easy and quick -- I would definitely book again."

We loved our stay with Ted. The apartment is brand new, including so many amenities, comfortable bed, 3D TV, with a gorgeous Blue Ridge Mountain View. If you want comfort, natural beauty and an easy ride to Asheville this is the place to stay!! Loved the colored lights too!

HAPPY AS A LARK

  • 5 of 5
Is it possible to feel love in your surroundings? Yes it is. I found myself feeling so comfortable and taken care of because everything was perfect, the privacy, quiet, beauty all exemplified by wonderful accommodations, ranging from organic cotton sheets, to a gorgeous full kitchen, with a bay window overlooking the tops of the mountains, beautiful detail given to everything, including remote control lighting of art work to set the mood... I don't want to give it all away, you must experience this for yourself. This owner cares that you have the best possible stay.

Beautiful, modern oasis and caring host

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I wanted to vacation Asheville, but stay closer to nature. This vacation rental ended up being the perfect spot! It's a 15-minute drive from downtown and a 10-minute drive from the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Ted, the owner, lives downstairs and is super helpful. We arrived to some welcome gifts and a very organized guide to the house. It's clear that he has put a lot of thought into small details to make guests comfortable. For example, here are some of the amenities that my husband and I took liberal advantage of:

- beautiful deck with a grill, table & chairs, and hot tub that I think seats up to 3 people
- amazing kitchen with gorgeous views of the forest and plenty of modern appliances (dishwasher, toaster oven, microwave, coffee pod machine, decent quality knives, and lots of pyrex storage containers)
- washer & dryer with completely customizable settings
- HD television with a good sound system
- ipod docks in both bedrooms
- salt rock lamp with dimmer (these seem to be all the rage in Asheville)
- organic linens & eco-friendly cleaning supplies
- modern thermostat with a de-humidifier function (though we didn't need that in early May)

We also brought our 5-month-old daughter, and she loved it.

A few local tips...

If you enjoy seafood, Cape Fear Seafood sells fresh fish & shellfish on Fridays and Saturdays. It's supposedly caught from the NC coast and delivered overnight. They sell it from a stand next to Trout Lily Market on Rte 74, which is a 10-minute drive from the house.

We tried a few casual restaurants in Asheville. Our faves were White Duck Taco in the River Arts District, Laughing Seed Cafe in Central Asheville, and Sunny Point Cafe & Bakery in West Asheville.

We went on a couple beautiful hikes to Craggy Gardens on the Blue Ridge Parkway and Catawbah Falls in Old Fort. The former is a short and easy hike. The latter is lengthier but extremely rewarding. Both have amazing scenery. We recommend the book Five-Star Trails: Asheville: Your Guide to the Area's Most Beautiful Hikes.

All in all, we had a wonderful trip. Would definitely recommend this vacation rental to our family and friends.

Great Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5
I found this place on VBRO and was very pleased with my stay. The apartment is adjacent to the main house and is very clean, fairly new and as shown in all the pictures. The bedrooms and very good size and there is another bedroom in the basement for larger groups which we chose to rent. Plenty of room for the family with all the cooking appliances if needed. Kitchen and the living room are one unit so it can get a little cozy at times for larger groups but plenty of sitting area. Place is close to everything including Asheville, Biltmore, Blue ridge parkway and Cherokee casino. The owner Ted is very accommodating and available if you need anything since he lives in the main house next to the apartment. Place also includes a nice and relaxing hot tub which is outdoors. Was a fun vacation for our family and the place was just right to relax with all the attractions close by.
