Our family (7 people, ages 8-72) gathered from VA, MD, and IL to celebrate Thanksgiving, 2012. This house was lovely - especially because it was warm enough to make a lot of use of the porch with the amazing view and charcoal grill for the turkey! The kitchen is well-equipped and things seem mostly to be new. Location is great - isolated, but only 30 minutes or so to Asheville, and about the same distance to the amazing Chimney Rock. One caveat - the road to the house is steep and a little daunting the first try - but none of us had 4 wheel drive and did fine - not sure we'd want to tackle it in heavy rain or snow!
Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We're glad you had some quality family time over Thanksgiving; hopefully being at Grandview made it all the more enjoyable. The Thanksgiving turkey is done on the grill at our house too, Yum! You're right about things seeming new, the majority of it is brand new. You're also right about the road. To gain over 1200 feet of elevation in the 5 mile drive from town takes some steep parts, fortunately it's two lanes. To our guests who visit during the winter months (for the true mountain experience) we recommend having 4WD/AWD. I'm sure you agree that, upon arrival, it's well worth it!
Our best to you and yours this holiday season,
