About the property

House, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Wineberry Lodge is a two thousand square foot home with open floor plan, 5 bedrooms and 3 bath. 2 bedrooms with their own baths are on one end of the house and 3 bedrooms with a shared bath in the hall are on the other end. Kitchen, dining and living room are in the middle.This home has hardwood and tiled floors and the gas fireplace warms you in the winter months. Wineberry is located in a small neighborhood on 50 acres of privately owned land in a quiet cove adjacent to Brahma Ridge Event Center. Enjoy a picturesque view of mountains and horse pasture from the sunny front deck. Relax on the private shaded back deck with grill and seating area. The house is not new, but is kept clean and well stocked allowing you the freedom to have family, large groups and pets without having to watch their every move for fear of making messes.The road to Wineberry is not steep and 4WD is not required. Snow removal and trash removal is handled by the owners. Conveniently located seven miles from I-40 (last 1/4 mi on mountain gravel road) and 11 miles west of downtown Asheville (via I40), but right in the heart of nature.

Also located on the 50 acres is Earthberm House (see VRBO listing #142227) a 3bd/2bath home and Catwalk Cottage (see VRBO listing #143424) with 2br/2bath & sleeping loft. Brahma Ridge Event Center (specializing in weddings, corporate retreats and health and healing workshops..) lies on the other side of the property and offers over 40 acres of private hiking, a pond with a large deck, gazebo and firepit for individual use as well as group events.

Guestbook comments from the manager

You guys were amazing! We appreciate you checking on us each day. Salting and shoveling our porch and giving us snow updates. The house worked perfectly for our family. Thanks for everything and GO TIGERS!

Oh and thanks for leaving up the live Christmas Tree for our after Christmas gathering!

good house .. great price

  • 5 of 5

House felt bigger in person nice open floor plan. We had 12 people but still had enough towels coffee mugs est. House was clean..owners were nice to deal with.. Fully stocked kitchen..check in was a breeze and the price was amazing! Down side detour on the way (obviously not owners fault) and it was a 40 dollar cab ride for 6 downtown but it wasn't a big deal for the money we were saving booking this house. We enjoyed our stay thanks again

Owner's Response: So glad you liked the house. It is amazing how big it is inside when from the outside it looks like a ranch style home. We work hard to be sure you have enough towels, coffee mugs, plates and other items. It does help us when you reserve that we know what is important to you, so asking for a lot of coffee mugs up front made me count before you Thank the folks that came before you who filled out our info sheet about what is needed in the home...we really listen to those comments. Detour is over! We now have a new bridge at the corner of Billy Cove and Beaverdam Rd. Hope to see you again soon.

Good spot not far from town....

  • 4 of 5

The house was great, however did smell like previous guests were allowed to smoke inside. All one level, so good for my grandmother who does not do stairs well. Not quite as isolated as I thought, however due to rain we did not get to explore the property like we wanted to.

Owner's Response: Sorry to hear it smelled of smoke...we DO NOT allow smoking inside the house. Please always let us know about things like that. I check the house after it has been cleaned before you arrive and must have missed it. Some times I do notice the smell of cooking at that house since there is no hood vent above the island where the range is. We live onsite and open the house to fresh air even in winter. Happy Grandmother was able to get around in the open floor plan. There are about 5 steps from the parking area onto the deck. The house is in a small neighborhood with 6 houses, but you can only really only see 1 house from the front deck. Driving in you pass 3 houses to arrive at Wineberry. Walk out the back door, down to a dirt road and come over to our event center to hike on the logging roads and enjoy the pond with fisheys for the kids to see.

Wedding Party's Pad

  • 5 of 5

Our wedding utilized all three cabins that Brahma Ridge has to offer. They were exactly what we were looking for--close to Asheville but still tucked quietly away from the hustle and bustle and much more homely and relaxing than staying in a generic hotel. With multiple cabins spread across the venue, the capability of having immediate family members stay on site during the wedding festivities was truly a great way to come together as one and we thoroughly recommend Brahma Ridge as the perfect venue for the outdoorsy couple. Holly and Rob do an amazing job at making guests feel right at home.

Wineberry Lodge is a very spacious cabin with a large combined kitchen and living area that everyone congregates in. Also, with a larger bathroom off the front bedroom, it was very convenient for a large number of people getting ready at the same time (bridesmaids/groomsmen). In the morning, you can take a cup of coffee and relax on the front porch, or go for a hike to the main grounds. A very quiet and cozy place off the beaten track.

December Trip

  • 5 of 5

My family (three kids under 4 which included a newborn, Grandma, wife and I) all stayed at Wineberry Lodge this past December. We were traveling to the Polar Express in Bryson City (about an hour away). As other reviewers mentioned, it was exactly what we needed and what I had hoped for. The house is very spacious and the multiple bedrooms with large kitchen/dining area was essential. It did not take long to get to downtown Asheville. We arrived late at night and didn't have much time to explore but I am looking forward to returning when warmer. The owners were friendly and accommodating. I would definitely recommend to anyway with a large family and plan on returning soon!

Plenty of Space For A Large Group To Stay Comfortably

  • 5 of 5

My whole family stayed at Wineberry Lodge for our wedding weekend and it was exactly what we were looking for! The house is surprisingly spacious with FIVE bedrooms - the front master bedroom and bathroom with a big nice tub were perfect for my grandparents who have mobility issues, the back bedroom with a queen bed and bathroom was perfect for my parents, and then there are three bedrooms on the other side of the house where my brother and sister-in-law and their four kids were very comfortable. Lovely outdoor space - a big porch and a front yard (with a hammock). Plus the living room/dining room area ended up being a space where we all sat and talked as it had enough seating for everybody and we could all be together. Beautiful, serene, peaceful, this house is an oasis in the mountains. Holly and Rob (the owners) are so great - helpful and non-obtrusive, knowledgeable and experienced but laid back. If going for a weekend trip to Asheville, this is not too far away (15-20 minutes to the heart of downtown) and would be absolutely perfect if you're looking for a mountain retreat! Was perfect for our wedding and would be a great house for a (large!) family or group of friends to rent for a fun Western North Carolina vacation!

Mother and 3 daughters

  • 4 of 5

My Mom, my 2 sisters and I had a wonderful quiet weekend at a very clean and well taken care of house. The yard and flowers were beautiful. All of my questions were answered prior to arriving at the rental. Even though this property was off the beaten road it was still very easy to find. Would recommend this house to friends. We were here to see the Biltmore house which was very close and easy to get to. This was my second stay at the property.
