About Rob Denton & Holly Berry

When hosts Holly Berry and Rob Denton first saw this secluded cove they realized they had finally found the perfect natural setting to host a myriad of gatherings and memorable moments. They worked to add comforts and amenities that are in harmony with the countryside surroundings, that create a haven for people seeking solace and tranquility. Come laugh and mingle under the stars and dance alongside the sparks of a crackling camp fire at Brahma Ridge.

Rob Denton & Holly Berry purchased this house in 2005

Why Rob Denton & Holly Berry chose Asheville Area

Only twenty minutes from all the downtown Asheville happenings yet this property feels so secluded.

What makes this house unique

The house received its name, Earthberm House, due to its construction - built into the side of the mountain. The all-on-one level is very comfortable for wheelchair guests.

Four-person hot tub outdoors under the stars!

Great house and location for two military families meeting up for long weekend

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location and lay out of this house. There were 4 adults, 3 kids and 2 dogs for 3 nights! It is not a typical cabin in the woods type of house and it is older but DO NOT let that deter you.

The location is great and the kids LOVED playing outside and hiking around the property! The hot tub is always a bonus with kids. :)

The view from the house is AMAZING!!

It is a very private setting which we all loved!

The indoor fireplace and fire pit made the weekend even better. Firewood was provided but we did have to split the logs.

Holly and Rob were just a phone call away.

Honestly we had the best weekend with our friends.

Short 10min drive to huge grocery store and restaurants and outlet mall.

30min drive (very easy and direct) to Biltmore and Sierra Nevada brewery

30min drive to hiking BUT you can take short hikes on the property too!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your time at our Earthberm House here at Brahma Ridge! We loved hearing the kids giggles while hiking around. Yes, the house is not new (built in 1980) we work hard to be sure it is clean and comfortable. It attracts families that want a nice place without having to watch the kids and pets every move. Hope to see you again real soon. Holly

Beautiful house with a fantastic view of the mountains

  • 5 of 5

My husband and i and family recently stayed at the Earthberm House while our daughter was getting married on the Brahma Ridge Event Center property. We loved it there. It was very convenient because we were very close to the wedding festivities, It was huge and accommodated up to 8 of us comfortably. The views of the mountains were breath taking also. We highly recommend this house as it had everything we needed and if we didn't see something the Brahma Ridge owners Holly and Rob were very helpful and got what ever we needed. And ... they were a lot of fun! Holly even helped me out at the reception with fastening my sandals! I'm sure that wasn't in her job description but she did it. i would highly recommend this house for your next vacation rental. Patty and Mark

Weekend girls getaway

  • 5 of 5

We booked the Earthbern house for a bachelorette weekend getaway and everyone was extremely impressed with this property! Plenty of space, well-stocked kitchen, gorgeous views of the mountains, and we loved the hot tub! The owners are very responsive and easy to work with. Would absolutely stay here again on our next visit to NC. The driveway up to the house is quite steep and made me very glad we took a vehicle with 4-wheel drive!

Everything about this property is awesome, the owners, the views & lacking nothing. Lots of space for family or girls get away. We are here to scout vendors for a destination wedding, already booked the venue & then find out they do weddings here as well. Even though we have almost everything booked somewhere else we have had the offer to talk to Holly because she is a wealth of information on putting together weddings. One of the girls here is planning to come back to Earthberm for a family vacation. I don't see how anyone could ever be disappointed with this rental.

Did not want to leave!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were in awe of the views from the front patio, wow. We enjoyed the peace and quiet of the area, the birds, the fresh air and the billions of lightning bugs at night. This home is the perfect place to stay with plenty of room for the whole family and we loved the fact that it had a complete suite at one end of the house which was great for those who wanted to stay up a lot later than the others!!!!! The approach to the property is breathtaking also. You will NOT be disappointed with this beautiful place. Thanks Rob & Holly.

Family Getaway

  • 3 of 5

The earthberm house was a good stay. It was clean and provided exactly what we were looking for - a home in the mountains near Asheville where we could have a small family reunion. Good for kids and the hosts were very gracious. The firewood provided was a nice bonus. The rate and location were good. The only word of caution is that the pictures portray the property in the best light possible and that the property could use some updates in the bathroom, ceilings and bedrooms.

Owner's Response: Thanks Bill...we really enjoyed having your family as our guests. Loved playing with all the kids in the meadow and campground (my Grans included). I appreciate your feedback and have replaced the air vents plus some ceiling tiles. We have painted 2 bedrooms and scheduled bathroom painting for next week. Replaced all comforters in bedrooms and added flat screen TV's w/ Genie boxes from Direct TV. It is so important to have good feedback from our guests.
