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 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.

Spacious Getaway minutes to Asheville

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at this spacious home in early February. We were concerned about the mountain roads with the weather & Kevin the owner was nice enough to put our minds at ease & offer to take us up if we had any problems. It really wasn't bad, we're from FL & not use to driving in snow & ice conditions. Cooked a lot and loved the new grill that was on the back porch. Well furnished with most items you need and the games & magazines were great to keep you busy. The furnished full size toiletries were a nice surprise. The home was in good condition, but just needed some cosmetics (painting) or I would have given it a 5. Nothing to spoil a good time by all though. Asheville & the Biltmore are close by & enjoyed hiking & viewing waterfalls in Pisgah National Forest nearby.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Everything was wonderful, we really enjoyed our stay! Not having to worry about bringing linens and things is a relief, and the amount of space in the house is outstanding. The view is wonderful as well!

Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

We had eight folks here for a winter weekend and the house was perfect for our trip. Very clean and comfortable, really well-stocked kitchen (and astonishingly detailed labels!), really comfortable beds and couches! It's just 15 minutes to downtown, but sitting on the rocking chairs on the porch with a beverage in hand, horses down the hill and stars overhead, gave us our rural mountain retreat after a night downtown. Kevin was responsive and really helpful (even trying to get the hot tub running for us in February!) -- this is a great find, we hope to return!

LOVE LOVE LOVE

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 10 ladies celebrating my sister getting married in March. The house is beautiful on the top of a mountain. Kevin supplies almost everything and has everything labeled so it is easy to find. The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of room for all of us to congregate and talk. 2 living rooms 2 dining tables. The rooms were all a good size and bathrooms were big. Towels were also really nice. We will defiantly be staying here again with our families. We were less than 10 minutes to the grocery store and food. Less than 30 minutes to the Biltmore Estate, where we spent our day. Uber also comes to the house so that was a bonus. Thank you so much we really enjoyed our stay.

Nice Family Trip

  • 4 of 5

Six of us stayed at the home for a 50th Anniversary Trip. We toured the Biltmore and spent some time in Downtown Asheville. The house was clean and comfortable. My Mother in Law wants to plan a trip back in the summer with the Grandkids!

Wonderful week

  • 4 of 5

Sorry to respond so late. We had an amazing time at Elevacres. It was wonderful to have a private pool and total privacy outside. Then our 2 grandchildren could be very loud and we're not bothering anyone. It was great to hike on the property and to visit the animals next door. Kevin, thank you for your attention to all or calls and questions. And, sorry again. We got home with a copy of your "Anne of Green Gables" book which we will return if you send us an address. Ugh. Grandchildren!
