                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Nicole V.

                                                                  We had a very nice experience. House was awesome and in a great spot! We felt like we were secluded enough to have privacy and amazing views but close enough to get to town quickly. Bob made everything very easy from arrival, things to do in the area and even telling us about the icy road conditions. My 2 year old son and our dog had a blast outside around the house and we had an awesome time exploring what Asheville has to offer. We want to come back and visit in the Spring or Fall next time. (Our car didn’t make it up the mountain in the icy road conditions) We will stay witn Bob again at this location or at one of his others! Highly recommended!

                                                                  Very Nice and Easy

                                                                  Doug T.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Jillian A.

                                                                  We really enjoyed Bob's place. It was exactly as expected. The one thing we didn't expect was that Asheville would receive almost a foot of snow. Luckily, with 4WD we didn't have many problems and could enjoy the winter wonderland views afforded to us. It is close to a grocery store and shopping and not difficult to get downtown. Bob responded quickly and was in constant contact. Would rent again!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Nice Mountain Views

                                                                  Susan C.

                                                                  Since I often rely on reviews I felt obligated to post mine. This rental does have nice mountain views, is private, and is close enough to town. However I would not rent this home again for the folllowing reasons. Although this home has 2 and a half baths, there is no bathroom upstairs. There you will find a loft with 2 twin beds and one full size bed by taking a spiral staircase which is a nuisance. The beds were comfortable, yet bed linens are uninviting and the overall decor of the home is antiquated. We also found the seating in the kitchen uncomfortable as the kitchen counter chairs are quite worn. Seating for 4 is choppy at best. We were also disappointed that the fireplace was not working. Also if you prefer bar soap, bring some as only a small amount of body wash was available in the master bathroom. This home would work best for a couple as the master bedroom/bathrooms are on main floor.

                                                                  Wow never got a 2 star. Don't know what to say. Maybe the they didn't look at the photos. We are in the process of getting the fireplace fixed. Anyone not renting this based on this review please read other reviews.
