About Susan Hinz

As a world traveler having vast experience with staying in different types of accomodations, I wanted to provide the best of all worlds in Holly Haven. Creating a 'home away from home', Holly Haven has been designed to be a destination for traveling souls desiring a relaxing atmosphere.

Susan Hinz purchased this Apartment in 2011

Why Susan Hinz chose Fairview

I've found all the natural beauties and open mindedness of Europe in Asheville! From the moderate climate, waterfalls and abundent nature to the cosmopolitan restaurants, ecclectic and down to earth people, Asheville area has it all in one place.

What makes this Apartment unique

Peace, serenity and a retreat into nature at Holly Haven. So many activities are nearby or just stay in and get lost in the sweeping vista views of the mountains for hours.

                                                                  Very clean. We had everything we needed including privacy.

We had a lovely, long weekend in the North Carolina hills and are already thinking about next year. Holly Haven is a great place to stay!!

                                                                  P.S. Thanks to the owner for the delicious homemade banana bread!!
