Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

This elegant home features vaulted ceilings, hand-crafted rock-work, and wormy chestnut furniture made from refurbished barn wood. There are three indoor rock fireplaces which were hand-crafted by a local artisan (some wood provided). While you relax around the fire, enjoy wireless internet connection. Soak your worries away in the 170-jet hot tub on a rock pavilion with an outdoor fireplace. Watch TV on a 60' flat screen TV with Blu-ray and Surround Sound.

“Our House' is nestled in a mountain cove, with a distant year-round view of Little Pisgah Mountain. Nourish yourself in this peaceful cove while you enjoy the hospitality of the Smoky Mountains. The Cove at Fairview is conveniently located – just 15 minutes to The Biltmore House, 15 minutes to downtown Asheville, and 10 minutes to the Blue Ridge Parkway. Fine dining, local festivals, and mountain vistas are some of the local attractions our guests enjoy.

The Game Room has something for kids of all ages – a Brunswick pool table, HD-TV on a 40 Inch Flat Screen, foosball +. The fully-equipped kitchen features granite counter tops, a cooking island and a wine cooler. This home is always impeccably clean. Outside, there are many places to sit and enjoy the vibrant flower gardens and the woods. There are horses, chickens, and Koi fish- if you feel like visiting the animals. Fresh eggs provided.

About Owner/Manager

After retiring from a 33 year career in sales management/ marketing, we visited our oldest daughter Etta and fell in love with Asheville. We moved to the Asheville Area in 2002 and lived in the house that became our first rental, “Our House.” (We built a cabin on the property and moved into it). Soon to follow, came our youngest daughter, Farris, and her now husband Danny. In 2009 their daughter Alyssa arrived and in 2015 Haley was born, making this a true family business.

Owner/Manager purchased this house in 2002

Why Owner/Manager chose Asheville Area

We fell in love with Asheville and all it has to offer. We then decided to share the beauty of the Asheville Area and the hospitality of the Smokey Mountains with others. “Our House” and “My Roundette” were on the property when we originally bought it. Both have since been remodeled. We then purchased additional land and built “My Place,” “The Huntley,” and “The Garden Cabin.” “Log Gap” and “Prayer Ridge” were both bought at separate, more remote locations. Both were extensively remodeled.

What makes this house unique

The benefit of staying at “The Cove at Fairview” is the unique experience. Each home offers you a different experience in small ways – outdoor fireplaces, swinging beds, and a fifty mile view are just a few. Also, enjoy waterfalls, Koi Ponds, a Lotus Pond, horses, chickens (enjoy fresh eggs), donkeys, goats, native plants, & flower gardens.

By staying here, you are nestled into all of the beautiful natural settings in this peaceful cove.

While being very private and close to nature, you are still afforded all of the conveniences of technology and are located near all this area has to offer. Truly a place to come and renew yourself. Kick back, relax, and have a true retreat or a wonderful place to land after an exhausting day of fun (downtown is only 15 minutes away).

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for a wonderful week at “Our House!” Our 50th anniversary was special to be here & share it with our family.

Amazing location, beautiful views could not ask for a better vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Frank was amazing - super responsive from the beginning and very accommodating. The house has all the amenities you could want for a family vacation spot. It was serene and far enough outside of town that you felt like you were in a secluded mountain spot, yet close enough to town to go in whenever you wanted. There was tons of space (we had 6 adults), and Frank provided awesome insight into the area, where to eat, activities etc.. Beds were super comfy and the decor is very charming. Killer views from the expansive deck, especially in the evening while grilling. Lots of cool history with the property as well.

Great family and friends get away!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as described and pictured. Frank was very thorough in his pre-stay tour. We loved the fresh eggs and bread. The koi fish, chickens, and other animals were a hit with the kids. Thank you for a great get away!

My husband and I planned a 35th wedding anniversary trip for ourselves and our adult children. I researched fun places and together we decided on Asheville. With little knowledge of the area, I used VRBO to help pick our lodging. I needed 4 bedrooms to accommodate everyone and that can be difficult to find. I was so impressed with the reviews from The Cove at Fairview and especially "Our Home". Planning our trip was made easier with all the suggestions from Frank! He greeted us on our arrival and went through local restaurants and attractions. Fresh bread and eggs were provided along with an orientation to the house. The house was well stocked for our convenience and very clean! It was easy for our family of 7 to uber into Asheville. This was a special trip and Frank helped to make it even better! We hope to come back in the future!!! Thank you!!!!!

Over the years we have stayed at almost all of the homes at The Cove at Fairview. The fact that we keep coming back should tell you something! Frank is always a gracious host. It's a great place to relax and explore all that the Asheville area has to offer. It's perfect for inter-generational family gatherings.
