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 place for a weekend getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 9 friends stayed at the Earthberm house for 3 nights and it was a dream! The house was roomy, clean and inviting and contained everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The view is gorgeous as well!

Owner's Response: How fun to have you all here! I met the 1st 2 girls that arrived and they were so sweet and excited to be in Asheville for the weekend. Looks like you really enjoyed the outside fire bowl and thanks for leaving the fire starter! We will try to keep that in stock.

Beautiful views, well stocked kitchen, very comfortable stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent weekend stay. 6 adults fit very comfortably. We really enjoyed the beautiful view, the hot tub, the close proximity to Asheville and that the kitchen was well equipped for cooking.

My kids and I loved it. 2 living rooms with a large kitchen and dining area and lots of sleeping room with TVs in every room was great for the family. We enjoyed the hot tub with mountain view and cozy fireplace.

Loved our stay

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! House is in a very quiet area, and we enjoyed the peace and relaxation. We came to the home with the lights on, music playing inside and fresh flowers on the table, great touch. We took advantage of the hot tub, fireplace, hammock and movie channels. There is a steep drive to get to the house but we didn't have an issue getting up/down it. Location is close to Asheville, took us about 15-20 minutes to drive to downtown. Our dog loved the outdoors and being able to run around without close neighbors. Thanks again!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the sweet review. Glad we were quiet for you. We do have workers doing projects daily onsite, but try to keep mowing, etc. for when guests are gone. If laying in the hammock and you hear a weed wacker...please call the office and let us know it's nap One of my pet peevs is vacationing and leaf blower starts up at 7am...won't ever happen here. Steep drive is short and paved so a bit easier than gravel. Come back and see us.

Perfect for families!

  • 5 of 5

So many great things to say about this rental! First, the location can't be beat. Close to everything, but you feel like you are way out in the country. Amazing views and sunsets. Plenty of room to enjoy the outdoors without leaving the property. Second, the house itself had the perfect layout for families. One level, 2 separate TV rooms (adult/kids), well stocked kitchen (we cooked every night), large table for family dinners, clean huge hot tub, fire pit, TV with every channel, on and on. We had 2 families, 5 kids between us under 5 and have already decided to make it a yearly trip. Rob was so friendly and brought us more firewood when we asked where to buy more (love that fire pit)! Loved that the house was open, lights on, music playing when we drove up... So inviting!

Owner's Response: We love that you all had a great time! It is the perfect house for families as well as groups for Women's gatherings and such. The design allows 2 families or folks who arrive for a wedding that may not know each other well to share the house and have privacy. Rob and I are excited to see you next year...maybe we will have snow for the kids next time! Holly

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
