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 hot tub is open year round. The pool is open from May 20 through October 1, and, of course the rental rate is much different when the pool is open, but there is a way to extend that time a little bit (for up to two weeks before opening or two weeks after closing), by paying a pool season extension fee.

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.

Great getaway!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great trip to Asheville and our stay at Elevacres was what make our trip! My husband and I took both sets of parents are there was plenty of room for everyone including our two dogs. Elevacres is nestled at the top of a hill with beautiful view of the mountains. It has a great sized deck partly covered too! For us it was the perfect location we wanted to be in the mountains but still able to get into Asheville easily. Plenty of seating for 6 or more in the dinning areas and living areas. The whole house was clean, the kitchen was well stocked and labeled. We would love to come back again!

Beautiful home with wonderful view

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family and dog! The view was beautiful and the location was close enough to Asheville, which we visited every day of our stay. The house is fully stocked for cooking, the hot tub was always hot and the pool was too. The owner was very responsive and truly cares about his guests who stay.

Ideal retreat for extended family When the leaves turn it should be gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

Well kept. Ultra clean. Everything kitchen-wise you need for meals on site. Three bedrooms for the adults and a "bunkhouse" room for the grandchild who loved having a bunkbed. We did not do any meals out of the house as we had two Corgis and a three year old so the closest supermarket, Ingles, had everything necessary Large property gave everyone running room. The pool was cleaned while we were there and it was a big hit. It's every bit as inviting as the picture Midtown Ashville was 20-25 minutes away; Waterville is 20-25 minutes the other way and it's a cute downtown too with easier parking.

A " good" negative: slow wifi and limited data. Kept screen time to a minimum, so we ended up playing games, going for walks, and having conversations!. If you intend to do work here however you may need an alternative plan

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for those kind words! I am glad you had a good time. I'm delighted to say that we finally got a much faster internet service available right after you left and I just had it installed yesterday! That has been one of the sacrifices from being in the beautiful private setting before, but now we have fast internet too! Sorry to spoil your "good negative"!

Perfect place for a girls weekend

  • 5 of 5

Wanted a place to host a girls weekend with dear friends from graduate school. Kevin's place fit the bill to a tee. The hot tub and heated pool were amazing! So many open places for fellowship with friends. The house was great with the most gorgeous sunrise right out the front window every morning. Would come back and visit in a heartbeat!

Great views!

Very nice house. Great pool. Had some trouble with Internet and TV which the homeowner adressed right away. Guest bathroom needs a little TLC.
