Exceeded ALL of Our Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Google Maps gave us a little trouble when first finding the place but once we found it, our impression of the house only became more and more positive. The house was VERY clean upon arrival, Bob was sure to communicate often and while we didn't need any special accommodations he was more than willing to help in case we did. The views are absolutely breathtaking and its seclusion really helps you to relax and unwind. While I don't know the next time my group will be in Asheville, I can assure you this location will be the FIRST place we look to rent.

Fantastic home with gorgeous views

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time at Bob's place in Asheville. We couldn't have asked for a better location to spend our time. We were just secluded enough to feel private, but close enough to civilization to not feel inconvenienced.You won't find a better place than the deck to sip coffee or an adult beverage and get lost in the beautiful mountain scenery. Mr. Spear was vey accommodating as well. We will definitely be returning in the future.

Excellent location, Very nice home.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. We wanted a place away from downtown but not too far away that it would be a hassle to go for dinner/entertainment, etc. This home fit the bill perfectly. Close enough to downtown - 15 minutes or so, but secluded location made you feel 100s of miles away. The home itself is very comfortable, has a nice deck with a mountain view. Grocery store and other conveniences only minutes away. Blue Ridge parkway very close. Would highly recommend, and hope to return to the area.

The owners are very responsive to questions and made us and our pet feel very welcome.

Great location, even nicer than it looks, plus dog-friendly

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I come to the Asheville area as often as we can. We always look for a place with a great view of the mountains, but this was the first time we found that within the city limits. It was wonderful to be able to easily go out to dinner and not have to contend with a long, winding trip back up a mountain in the dark. The house is also right near an entrance onto the Blueridge Parkway, grocery stores, and gas stations. Perhaps the best part was being able to have our small dog with us (I wish more renters would allow this). The house itself was new, everything was clean and worked fine, and the kitchen was reasonably well-stocked (I'm a recipe writer by trade, so no place will have everything I could want, but I was able to make do, which is more than I can say for most rentals.)

There are a few things potential visitors should be aware of: it's a pretty steep climb up the stairs, and I wouldn't recommend it to people with hip or knee problems; to get to the laundry room, you have to go outside down the stairs, and around to the other side of the building (we had clothes that took several cycles to dry and had to make that trip up and down a few times in the dark.) Finally, and this is personal preference, but the bed seemed overly soft and sloped toward the middle; if you have back troubles, you might have problems. Overall, though, it's a beautiful place, with two nice bathrooms, and I would stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I agree that the rental, because of the stairs, my not be for people who have trouble with stairs.The bed is only a few years old but there are some many types, it is a personal preference, Next time you come we can take off the padding we put on top of the mattress. Just let us know. Thanks Bob and Cathy
