About Sherri Mansell

My husband and I have 4 children ages 12 - 25 and live in South Florida. We have vacationed in western NC for over 25 years where my parents have a home.

Sherri Mansell purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Sherri Mansell chose Asheville Area

We chose this location in Black Mountain because it's a very quaint town with great restaurants and so close to the city of Asheville with airport, universities and culture events.

What makes this cabin unique

What we love best about our property is that we are located in the mountains surrounded by nature but have the luxuries of home and only 10 minutes to the grocery store and other amenities.

Great Vacation!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had the greatest time at the Preserve cabin! We loved staying there. It was so spacious it allowed us to take another family along with us. The cabin was beyond clean. It really had everything we could have asked for. The property was Awesome! We loved taking hikes along the trails on the property. I even got to relax and hangout in the hammock and read. After hiking and running around all day, the jacuzzi was a super plus! The location is perfect. Asheville was so close and there were so many fun activities around. We ended up going Zip Lining and another park for a TreeTop Adventure. The whole family had a blast and everyone participated. It is the perfect vacation for all ages. (My kids are 11, 14 and 16) We loved going to town which was 10 minutes away and we had really good meals. We loved the Ale House and they had a band playing great music, it was fun. In addition to eating out, we also enjoyed cooking in your kitchen because it has everything. I even needed a blender for one of my meals and you had it in the cabin. We really enjoyed both staying in and going out to eat. I was concerned before we got there that we would not have internet but your wifi worked perfectly so when I needed to work on my computer, I was able to get through everything quickly without problems so I could go back and enjoy my family on our vacation. It is a beautiful Cabin. It was a Great Vacation and it was because we stayed at the most perfect place! The HighRock Preserve!!!!!! We can't wait to go back!!!!

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed yourselves! Yes, Western Carolina has activities for children and adults of all ages. Nothing better than luxury living surrounded by nature! Today I saw a family of geese in the pond.

Our two familys (5+4) had a wonderful time. The cabin has all of the modern amenities, and the sleeping accommodations are very comfortable. The property is also really nice, especially the outdoor firepit. There are a couple of nice trails on the property - perfect for younger kids because they're not very long. If you are looking for longer/more aggressive hiking, do some research to find some local trails.

Owner's Response: We enjoy hearing that our guests had a wonderful time and enjoyed the trails on the property. If you are looking for longer trials, we recommend Chimney Rock or Montreat trails, both 20 minutes from our property as well as many others in the area.

Luxury Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

The Cabin is a beautiful home that will exceed your expectations. Every amenity needed was provided.. The views from the home are amazing and it fills with natural light in the mornings. Grocery stores and restaurants are close by, as well as the Biltmore and other attractions in downtown Asheville. On the property there are beautiful walking trails, creeks, a large pond with island and bonfire pit, a hammock and more. I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a peaceful vacation in a quiet, natural setting. Sherri and Larry were very hospitable and available for questions at all times.

Wonderful Time at Highrock Preserve

  • 5 of 5

While the weather didn't cooperate for the whole long weekend we had no complaints about our stay at Highrock Preserve. The cabin is situated in a private cultural-de-sac overlooking a beautiful pond. While we didn't get a chance to use the fire pit (stocked with firewood) we still enjoyed ourselves. The cabin is lovely and well stocked with all we needed. Having rented at other places around the country we have certain things we expect and all those things were in place at Highrock. Enough Paper towels, Toilet paper, dishwasher soap to start off which we could replenish once we went to the store , shampoo in the bathrooms, gas for the grill and a grill that is in good shape and some spare lightbulbs for any that blew. It is the little things that count. And the hot tub was clean and worked fine. WiFi was good, TVs worked fine. So we had no worries and could sit back and relax. Good instructions on how to handle trash. We had a lovely time sightseeing (Biltmore, Grove Park Inn, Folk Art Center and the Arts District and antique stores). Next time we will do the outdoor stuff like Chimney Rock when it is raining.

And a word about the road in. While a little worrisome at first (it is steep and curvy in places) by the 2nd day it was no big deal. In the gravel put the vehicle in low gear and go. You will be fine and the cabin waiting for you at the end is awesome!
