Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Elevacres is a like having your own private resort on a mountaintop. It is perfect for family vacations, receptions, and family reunions**(see note below).

There is a large sparkling SWIMMING POOL with a HOT TUB beside it.

Secluded on all sides, our ten acres of beautiful rolling high meadows provide gorgeous long-range views down the valley.

The swimming pool provides for a wonderful addition to any vacation. It is extremely fun to be able to swim under the stars in a warm pool even in early fall when the nights start getting a little chilly. If you want to get really warm you can jump into the beautiful hot tub beside the pool. You will really enjoy this. The pool and hot tub are not open during some of the colder months, so make sure to call and check before you book.

As renters you are welcome to all of the surrounding 120 acres that is owned by our family and extends all the way to the top of the mountain. These mountains have a great combination of forests, high meadows, rock faces, and creeks that will provide for lots of exploration on foot or horseback (we do have a two horse stall mini-barn for your horses).

We also have a large concrete pad set up for half court basketball, skating, skateboarding, and kid cars and bikes.

There is a huge lawn that is great for weddings, receptions, BBQs, badminton, volleyball, frisbee, baseball, or whatever else you can think of.

You may find it hard to leave Elevacres during your vacation to visit the other sites around Asheville. But if you do venture out you will find that we are in the perfect location. Located about twenty minutes from the Biltmore House and less to downtown Asheville, NC Arboretum, malls, and antiques, you will also get a ten minute headstart on everyone headed to nearby elk watching, and downhill skiing.

We still live in the Asheville area and we plan to move back into this house someday when the kids are raised, so we take very good care of it. You will not find a cleaner or better maintained property than Elevacres.

**There is another smaller vacation rental property further up the mountain (out of sight and hearing), so we can accommodate large groups.

Our stay/

  • 4 of 5

Aside from a few minor issues upon arrival, all were taken cate of in good order. The property is outstanding and the home is spacious and comfortable. The children had a great time at the pool and the hike up the mountain side is invigorating and challenging. Neighboring horses and cows add to the outdoor atmosphere.

Elevacres is a rural paradise

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, well laid-out, well furnished, well supplied house in a quiet private valley near Asheville. Everything was clean and perfect, including the large pool and mowed field. My grandchildren had a great time. Our friends visited us for an afternoon and shared dinner and the house easily handled 20 people. Six stars out of five.

Relaxing , beautiful environment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Elevacres for a week in late June and had a wonderful time. The scenery is quite striking, with both near and long range views of the western NC mountains. The house is spacious and well equipped, really didn't need to bring anything other than groceries we wanted. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool and hot tub. My 7 year old granddaughter absolutely loved chasing fireflies in the big back yard almost every evening. Asheville and all it has to offer is a short drive away. We did a trolley tour, some sightseeing on the Blue Ridge Parkway, and spent most of a day at Biltmore House and Gardens. The property owner, Kevin, was very friendly and accommodating. Overall great vacation!

Beautiful and Private!

  • 5 of 5

The highlight of this location is the heated pool and hot tub! You have total privacy on top of a hill with the pool and hot tub in the back of the house with a big flat yard with nothing behind you, but woods. House was extremely clean. This is great for a family or couple's retreat. Looking forward to returning again in the future. Thanks Kevin!

Beautiful property, relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely well kept property. Mattresses were good quality and we all had a good night sleep. Owner provided nice fluffy towels. Property is just lovely! We hope to visit again soon. One word of caution for others - if you arrive after dark, pay close attention as the drive is narrow and winding.
