Great location with a lot of space.

  • 4 of 5

Great location with a lot of space. We did not even use the second floor, which has 3 beds. It's about 8 minutes from downtown. Highly recommended.

My husband and I plus our two dogs stayed at this rental for a week this October. The location was wonderful, high enough up the mountain to get excellent views, but not so high as to worry about making it up there! The proximity to downtown Asheville, Blue Ridge Parkway, NC Arboretum, Black Mountain, Highland Brewing Company, everything we were interested in doing was only 15-20 minutes away. It is also close to the Western NC nature center, and the Folk Art Center of the Southern Highlands Guild. Really can't say how fantastic the location was, we felt like we were "away from it all" but the grocery store, gas station, and entertainment was closer than expected. The owners were very quick in responding to e mails, also a couple of times during our stay we called with questions and they shockingly always answered the phone right away, it never went to voicemail once. The rental has a wonderful fire pit, well equipped kitchen, everything was clean and comfortable. A really neat spiralstaircase to get into the upstairs loft. Beautiful hardwood floors, poured and polished concrete counter tops, a spacious master bath. Laundry room, everything one could need. We will definitely be back!

Another fantastic week at this wonderful home. We have privacy and such a wonderful view. I spend ever morning and evening on the deck watching the sun rise and fall. We have rented from these owners 4 times and were completely happy each time. Bob is always ready to help if needed. Thank you 😊򒠠folks for such a positive rental experience for 4 straight years. Hope to be back again next year.
