In the woods and close to town

  • 5 of 5

This is a nice little rental house! It has a great view of the mountains and is fairly private. The location is awesome if you want to have that nature/woods feel but be close to Asheville. Grocery etc are also very conveniently locate. This place has all the amenities to make for an enjoyable stay. We would stay here again!

beautiful view, good location

  • 4 of 5

Clean, comfortable home in a great spot. Out in the hills but easy access to town and shopping.

The downstairs comfortable but I found my loft bed too soft (no one else in my party complained about beds.) could have used more towels. Also, and important, spiral staircase to loft a challenge to my older bones . Upstairs perfect for kids.

The owner was always available to respond to questions.

Would readily return if I was staying in the downstairs bedroom.

Comfortable, secluded home in the woods

  • 4 of 5

Overall the home was adequate for our family needs but did not really excel in a noticeable way. The home was clean and well maintained with the exception of some ants near the fireplace. Portions of the street and all of the driveway are steep and gravel and could be difficult in the winter. Hosts were helpful and accommodating.

Loved the view

  • 5 of 5

We chose this rental for the view, location, and dog friendliness. The view was almost as good as those on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The views from the deck and through the picture window were amazing. The location could not be better. It only took 15 minutes to get from the house to downtown. Not only could we bring our chocolate lab, but the owner even provided doggie care on the day we were driving over to the Smokies. An unexpected delight was the owner. Bob was very responsive to our requests, immediately took care of a few issues, and is just a very nice man. We definitely will be coming back. One of the best vacations we have ever had.

All aspects of the cabin weere extremely nice and accomodating.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the cabin. It was just like being at home with everything available for anything we needed. One in our party had a knee problem which made the steps quite a challenge. My grand daughters especially liked the loft where they slept. I was the only male with 5 females and we didn't even run out of hot water!
