Perfect house for a multi-generation vacation; large family room, with tv, games & gas fireplace downstairs; spacious great room with sunny views of mountains, comfy furniture & wood-burning fireplace upstairs. Fabulous kitchen with every kitchen tool you could ever need!
Great for a winter stay! Only 20 minutes to Cataloochee ski area; 30 minutes to Asheville with great restaurants, galleries, movie theaters and shops. The house is located in a lovely rural area, surrounded by farms & great views; but convenient to grocery store and pharmacy when needed. Loved having the washer & dryer for nightly drying of wet ski clothes!
Would have rated this 5 stars except for the uncomfortable sofa bed as the bedding in the "4th" bedroom. We had brought our own air mattress and were very glad we did. Other than that, this was a perfect vacation home!
This is an absolutely picturesque area a short distance from Asheville and we delighted in the charm and sparkling accommodations we found at this home. This is not decorated as a typical rental, but exudes the feel of a loved home with the hallmarks of a decorators eye. It is quiet, private and fully furnished. The owners provide a book which details all the local restaurants and sites, as well as any questions you might have about the house. We could not have been happier with our choice and hope we have the opportunity to stay there again. Just terrific!
We traveled with our two boys (13 and 9) and my parents. It was the perfect two family house. We had a wonderful common space on the main floor where we could all visit, eat, and enjoy the views. The downstairs space was perfect for us and the boys to spend time at late in the evenings.
The description of the house is accurate. The house itself is very well-maintained and clean!! We were able to find anything and everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. There was not a thing we would change.
The owner was fabulous to work with from the first inquiry all the way to the conclusion of our stay. They have provided a wonderful place for families and friends to vacation. We look forward to our next stay here.
When arriving at the home, my family and I were very pleased with the accommodations. I traveled with my husband and 3 children (ages 9, 6, and 6). We traveled to NC to attend our church camp meeting at camp Junaluska. The camp is approximately 10-12 minutes traveling by car. There are many local attractions within 20-45 minutes (Asheville, Cherokee, downtown waynesville,Maggie valley).
The house was very clean and easily accessed. The main floor has a study (with queen pullout bed), master bedroom (king), 2 bathrooms, kitchen and living room. Fire burning fireplace was on the main floor and gas burning on the bottom floor. To get into the home there are 3 steps. The rest of the main floor is friendly to handicap needs. The kitchen had all the amenities you require. Very pleased with the gas stove. Large propane grill on the deck made for nice grilling.
The bottom floor is very nice for the kids. 2 twin beds in 1 bedroom, queen/king is present in the other bedroom. 1 bathroom is present downstairs. Large TV is present downstairs and the Wii we brought was easily connected. A pull out sofa is in the downstairs family room.
We were very pleased with our stay and would recommend this to all who are considering a trip to western NC.
We had a wonderful time and much of it was because it felt like a "home" and not a "rental". We were 2 couples along with my 88-year-old mother-in-law. One reason I chose this home was because she would not have to climb more than 2 steps on the porch in order to get into the house. My husband and I were in the master suite on the first floor and she slept in the study/bedroom and had her own full bath also on the same level. My sister and husband had the entire downstairs to themselves which is comprised of a bedroom with a queen bed and one with 2 twin beds along with a full bathroom and a very large den complete with sofas, games, and a hugh TV. The garage is also on this level. (Somehow I misunderstood and thought there was a queen bedroom upstairs instead of the study with a sleeper sofa. I really think the sleeper sofa is better for children as opposed to adults.)
The home was very clean, beautifully decorated and had everything we needed. We quickly settled into a routine of leisurely mornings drinking coffee and tea sitting outside on the upper deck and enjoying the vibrant fall foliage followed by an outing and lunch and then in the evening eating dinner, relaxing and playing cards at the kitchen table. The home is surrounded by trees which are gorgeous. As the week progressed, the leaves began to fall and we could see that in the winter there will be a view of the distant mountains.
Irv could not have been more accommodating. Early on I inquired about a television upstairs because my mother-in-law does not do steps well. He told me there was a small one in the kitchen but he put one in the study which was perfect for her. Also, there was a problem with the kitchen TV and Irv and my husband talked several times and were able to resolve it. The owners were very solicitous to our every need and it was evident that they care about the experience of their renters.
As for our daily outings, there are so many places from which to choose. We ended up going to Brevard (30 minutes from the house) which really does have white squirrels; the Biltmore Estate (30 minutes) which was amazing; Dollywood (1 1/2 hrs) surprised me because I really enjoyed it; the Bush bean visitor center was a surprise we found on the way to Dollywood; and downtown Waynesville (10 minutes) had shops and restaurants. The Ingles grocery store is great and a few minutes’ drive from the house is a convenient gas station, cafe and minimart.
I would love to return again.
We can't say enough to properly reflect what an enjoyable stay we had in this home. As frequent visitors to the Waynesville area, we have had numerous different accomodations and, without question these were the best by far. We have never seen a rental so well equipped for day to day living. Needless to say our stay for four weeks was memorable; we got to have several friends and family visit us from Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maryland and Florida. Everyone remarked about how nice the house was. We want to thank Irving & Cindy for allowing us to enjoy their lovely home.
