About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6 Adult and 2 kids)

This is the perfect home for a quiet, relaxing getaway but with all kinds of toys to make it fun for the entire family. Peace and quiet with all the luxuries of home and more. Read a book on the wide porch on rockers or a glider. Or have lunch on the porch watching the crazy hummingbirds fight for domination of the feeder. All with a view to die for. The view down the valley changes often from clear to a river of clouds. Enjoy your own personal spa with the 6 person Hot Tub.

You find yourself surrounded by the beauty of nature as you drive to the top of this mountain along a creek with beautiful waterfalls, just above Chimney Rock. When you arrive you will find a wonderful refuge from stresss. The home resembles an Irish or French mountain home with stone walls, grape trellises on the hillside and berries throughout the property. Enjoy rocking on the front porch, where the mountain views are breath taking or relax in the private hot tub while marveling at the night sky. Or enjoy a quiet evening at the old stone fire pit on a secluded conversation terrace that will make you feel like you went back in time.. Smores anyone? Take a leisurely stroll through our quiet neighborhood or enjoy more challenging mountain trails. The homes, in this neighborhood, are close enough for comfort but far enough from each other for privacy. We now offer 180 degree views from the front porches. There is a new stone wall and private fire pit area to enjoy the beautiful night sky.

Recently we added an exciting Projection 100' Theater Game Room with Bluray DVD.. The kids won't mind the peace and quiet outside with the Samsung Home Center with surround sound. The home has something for everyone.

The house was completed in 2008, so it is still new and well kept. You can enjoy the peace and quiet of this home for less than many inns or resorts, and there is room to bring the entire family if you want to. The house sits on approximately 2 acres of land, and there is plenty of parking space. The main level features a kitchen with stainless steel appliances and white oak floors. The living room features a big screen HDTV with a Samsung full surround sound and a bluray dvd player. Enjoy the gas log fireplace in the winter and the cool mountain breeze as you open the windows in the summer. The master bedroom is also on the main floor and features a king size bed with large windows overlooking the mountains. The lower level has two bedrooms with a queen size bed in each, along with a futon in the downstairs den area. The Entertainment Room and home theater is on this level. We recently added INTERNET WIFI.

If you prefer to see the sights there is lots to see. Nearby attractions include Chimney Rock Park where shops abound and streams flow. Lake Lure boat rides and the beach area are sure hits for all ages. Hendersonville is only a short drive away, and Asheville and the beautiful Biltmore House and Gardens are only 25 minutes away. A short drive to Black Mountain is a must for antique lovers. There are several great restaurants in the area, and many types of entertainment are sure to be found.

Can be rented with Sunrise View to accomodate larger groups, Just a short walk down the road

About Bill Blackerby

We love to travel. Our son is a studio engineer and our daughter is about to start college so we hope to have more time at the Autumn View. We fell in love with it the first time we saw the view. One of the best we have ever seen.

Bill Blackerby purchased this house in 2010

Why Bill Blackerby chose Asheville Area

The home is right in the middle of so much Ashville and the Biltmore, spectacular Lake Lure, Black Mountain for antiqueing and music and historic Hendersonville yet it is so private and removed. AND THE VIEWS ARE TREMENDOUS.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy coming to our mountain home to rest and unwind from the hustle and bustle of day to day activities. We enjoy cooking out and sitting around a nice fire. The hot tub is very relaxing! With High Speed WIFI HDTV and a Samsung Audio system for the rest of the time. SA full home theater to keep the family entertained with movies on a 100' screen

A wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here June 20-23, 2017 to visit the area, go hiking, and see friends. Autumn View worked very well for us. Bill and Lea, the owners, were very easy to work with and quick to respond. The house was clean, modern, and well-appointed. In addition to the hot tub, there's a fire pit (which was set up to use, 'tho we didn't have the chance). One of our favorite things was dining and relaxing on the balcony. Though we don't visit to watch TV, the upstairs TV has a wonderful sound system (we didn't try the downstairs projection TV).

Here's a few things that potential renters may want to know... It's a steep, 3-mile climb from Alt-74 to the house, and paved until you turn at the end. This means it takes a little while to go anywhere, but the town of Chimney Rock is quite close, and nearly empty in the evenings (business there is driven by the state park). The info says there's wifi but it's not high speed, and boy, is that the truth. It's so slow as to be unusable but we had good cellular reception on Verizon. The house is not entirely private - there's a road in front and two houses across the street (the road and one of the houses are shown on the pictures in VRBO). Also, one of the pictures on VRBO shows a house with two balcony levels - that's a different house. Upstairs in the dining and great room area there are no curtains or blinds on the windows. This yields a nice view but can feel a bit exposed.

There's a lot here we did not have the opportunity to use, such as the entire downstairs other than the hot tub. There were books, games, and a few DVDs. In short, we had an enjoyable stay and would certainly consider Autumn View again if we're in the area.

Owner's Response: David Thanks for spending your getaway with us. Sorry about the internet but it is absolutely the best we can get. We tried Hughes but although faster it was very inconsistent. We are constantly looking for other sources. The picture that looks like two balconies is taken from the fire pit. The upper is a balcony the lower is a porch where the hot tub is located. As far as the ride up most people have said it is enjoyable. There is one steep section near the top but it is hard to get to any house near the top of a mountain without some steep stretches. Being paved all the way up and maintained by the county it has never been an acceas problem. Thanks again Looking forward to having you back Bill and Lea.

Beautiful Weekend Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

The view was awesome especially with 8 inches of snow we had when we were there. The house is very spacious and has everything you need already there except the food you need. The beds have memory foam mattress toppers that are so comfortable, I'm in the process of purchasing one myself. The house is in a great location with Asheville not being far away if you want to visit the city and also there are plenty of outdoor activities such as Chimney Rock and Lake Lure very close. Last but not least, the owners of the property are super nice and helpful and you can tell they really cherish their property.
