About Iris, Manager

We love Asheville & visited for many years. We fulfilled our dream building a vacation home in the mountains & want to share this beautiful home with others so they may enjoy the sounds of nature away from the hustle & bustle.

Iris, Manager purchased this house in 2002

Why Iris, Manager chose Asheville Area

The unit is at the end of a road almost to top of mountain on concrete road where you will experience peace & quiet with the sounds of nature. Enjoy nights on the deck viewing millions of stars.

What makes this house unique

Secluded BUT not remote with easy access to many area activities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a very pleasant stay, the unit is very cozy. The fall leaves & the mountain views from the deck are just gorgeous! The deck is perfect to enjoy the calm & the sounds of the surrounding nature. This week was so relaxing, our family really enjoyed it. We hope to come back soon. Thanks to Iris, the manager, for being so helpful in making this happen so smoothly for us.

Beautiful retreat in the NC mountains

  • 4 of 5

Just finished a girls' weekend at this beautiful house in the NC mountains. We had a wonderful time and the place was absolutely perfect. What a beautiful view off the back porch, and the fire pit was a nice touch as well. We were a bit surprise by the steep and curvy drive up to the house... would recommend a smaller vehicle than an 8 passenger Suburban for that climb! Kitchen was well stocked, though we were a bit disappointed in the limited toiletries and cleaning products in the unit. Overall, the house was very clean and just about what we expected.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent a 5 day family vacation at the Tranquil Blue Ridge Mountain Retreat. We rented both floors and had 10 adults staying at the house. The house was great. Very clean and well appointed. The kitchen was wonderful and had everything you could possibly need. We enjoyed sitting out on the decks in the mornings and the evenings. We used the grill to cook out and had dinner on upper deck one evening. The fire pit on the lower deck was great at night. We visited several breweries, went to a baseball game, played golf and fished during our 5 day visit. The road to the house is a little bit of a challenge, but it is certainly worth it. Iris was great to work with. We will certainly come back again in the future.

Gorgeous views and great location for hiking

  • 5 of 5

The house is nicely appointed and quite comfortable for our party of 6 (four adults and two children). The only disappointment was the lack of a yard to play in, but the local park was less than a mile away so we had options for the kids when they wanted to play after-dinner catch or run around. The proximity to great hiking (Triple Falls, Catawba Falls, Chimney Rock) and Biltmore made it a perfect place to stay for our week in the mountains, and the deck's lounge chairs and tables and chairs made it the perfect place to watch sunrises and sunsets as well as offer additional dining space. There is also a grill that made dining al fresco a must.

The house is very clean and comfortable--great beds and plenty of seating. The driveway is very steep, but our rental minivan had enough power to make it up the hills. Iris, the manager, was responsive and informative. We are familiar with the Asheville area having visited many times before, so we knew that our favorite restaurants would be a fifteen minute drive or so, but there is an Ingles grocery store (and a Starbucks) within five minutes and again, the hiking spots we were looking to visit were easily accessible. A great temporary home! If our party had been any larger, we would have needed to rent the downstairs portion of the house, but again, our party of six had plenty of room.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The overall finish and amenities were nice. The steep driveway was paved, which made it a nicer climb to the top. Great views!! Only drawback was that it was difficult to know from the ad, but the place was a little cramped for 7 people. Otherwise a great place.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

House was beautiful, well-maintained. Manager was easy to communicate with and gave great directions/recommendations. Plenty of space for (9) adult women. Only complaint is that there weren't any sponges to wash dishes! :)
