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).

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 lovely time in your mountain house. Great loction, minutes from downtown. We enjoyed our evening walks through the town, dessert at The Cafe and shopping on Main street. Off the beaten path is the Triple Falls in Dupont State Park, which was just beautiful and cool, refreshing water for the heat of the day. Thanks again. We'll see you next time!

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!

Awesome vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Avalon with another couple of adult friends and their infants. We had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed the quick walk into town to grab groceries. There are some pretty cool little restaurants and cafes, and a thrift/antique shop. With a zipline tour and other adventurous activities nearby there's sure to be something for everyone. After living in the city for years, it was strange to not hear your neighbors in the morning - what a relief!

With the awesome location, flexible sleeping arrangements, and lots of nearby activities this rental is well suited for just about anyone.

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Teri absolutely made our first experience renting a home on VRBO a positive one. She was attentive and answered all our questions promptly. Our family members, both young and old, felt right at home spending quality time together. The kitchen was well stocked with all the essentials from pots and pans to salt and pepper, making it easy to prepare breakfast just like at home. The large deck and the swing were a hit with the kids. There was also a hammock available for use. We enjoyed browsing the quaint little shops and stopping for a bite at the Purple Onion.

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Avalon! There was plenty of space in the home and the porch was great for grilling and outdoor activities! The house is in walking distance of downtown Saluda where we could walk to lunch or dinner easily. Upon arrival the house was very clean and well maintained! Teri was very helpful with our check in process and answering any questions that we had. Green River Barbecue in downtown Saluda was great for lunch and both Sierra Nevada Brewery and Southern Appalachian Brewery were within 20 minutes of the property and made great day activities. I would definitely recommend Avalon to friends and family and return for another vacation!
