About Teri

I love our home in the mountains. It's a great house for entertaining family and friends and so close to Asheville, Hendersonville and Tryon and all of their great festivals! We love our dogs and the house is pet-friendly (with pet fee/agreement).

Teri purchased this house in 2006

Why Teri chose Asheville Area

Saluda is a fantastic town. You can walk around and shop, eat, listen to music, play at the playground - you can zip-line at The Gorge, go tubing & kayaking, fly fish or go to several waterfalls close by...there's no end to the activities.

Saluda is only minutes from the new Tryon Equestrian Facilities, Hendersonville Apple Festival, the Biltmore House and Grove Park Inn in Asheville.

What makes this house unique

Best of all, I bought this house from the former Mayor and it is in the heart of downtown. You can enjoy all of the activities by walking out your front door.

I love to fly fish and the fishing is just minutes away and is really great yearound. Let me know if you need a recommendation for a Guide!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such a great time here. Our "Camp Mimi-Ga" with my 3 grand children (Aubrey Ella, 15; Claire, 14; and Cooper, 13). and Sheila, the grandmother. Zip lines and walks, and great meals in town, and hikes and just a great place for us all to be together. Looked for the Sh_____ Falls but had lots of fun & adventures on the way. Loved Saluda , the friendly town, great restaurants, etc. etc. Thanks!

Wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at this property. There were 10 of us (5 adults, 3 college kids and 2 children) and we all had a bed and plenty of room! The kitchen is spacious and the outside deck is a great place to read a book. The bed rooms are all large (with the downstairs bedrooms being ex-large). Someone had commented that the downstairs was musty but we had no problem with it. My daughter who has allergies stayed downstairs and didn't have any issue. The town of Saluda is adorable. We hiked, visited the Biltmore house, visited Hendersonville and strolled through Saluda. I recommend this house 100%!

Well set-up for family

  • 4 of 5

The house worked out well for our family's with separate bedrooms and living areas on the two levels. It is an older house situated among several other homes within walking distance to downtown and most restaurants. Being just two miles from the interstate made it easy to get to Asheville (45 min) and Charlotte (1 1/2 hr). It would be nice to have had the fireplace functional as the nights were cool. However, the house was ready when we arrived and our damage deposit was returned within a week of departing. So no complaints from us.

Owner's Response: The fireplace is functional but since the thermostat and fireplace are upstairs, if you use the gas fireplace, the central heat and air will turn off when it gets warm upstairs and that leaves the downstairs too cold. The HVAC system is only 2 years old and heats the house very well!

The Saluda house was okay.

  • 3 of 5

We had a group of 7 ladies for our family girls trip. We had booked a house in downtown Hendersonville and they sold the property so we had to find something else. I was glad we found this house, but it wasn't exactly perfect. The outside porch and family room were a good size, I'll grant that. But there were 2 doors (one up and one down) that were sealed or nailed shut. They were main entrances off the family room and stairs. That was disconcerting, to say the least. And the central staircase was very steep. We were worried about my 87 year old mother going up and down them. If the baby in our group had been walking age, we would have been worried. And there were a few annoying things - like the bar stools around the table had legs that kept falling out; plus I think every door in the house squeaked. The two beds in my bedroom downstairs were so loud and creaky you could never sneak out of bed in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom without waking up your roommate. Also, the directions to the house - if there's a house number we never saw it. Maybe some more precise directions would help, plus a house number or mailbox somewhere. Maybe we are too picky, but I don't think we would stay there again.

Perfect Horse Lovers Getaway not far from TIEC, Harmon Field, and FENCE

  • 5 of 5

My Mother, daughter, sister and two Aunts rented Saluda Avalon May 11-14, 2017 as a launching point for our girls getaway Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC) adventure! My daughter and her pony were competing at the TIEC this past weekend, and this house was the perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle of the show grounds, and an easy 16 minute drive (exactly!) from the TIEC facility. It was so nice to be able to have the option to cook meals at "home" rather than pay the expensive horse show restaurants prices. It was also incredibly special to have a safe, comfortable place to relax and visit together.

The beds were incredibly soft and the kitchen was well appointed. There was plenty of room for all six of us to have our own beds and the home is quiet and nestled into the side of a hill with only a few (very quiet) neighbors. I highly recommend renting this home and especially recommend it to any equestrian visitors who may be showing at TIEC, Harmon Field or at FENCE. The house is a very short (5 minute) walk from a great pizza place and a 10 minute walk from our favorite restaurant in town (the Purple Onion!).
