Gorgeous, well maintained home!
Thank you John and Georgina for the use of your beautiful property! Space was ample, the view was breathtaking, the hot tub was a perfect touch. We arrived and it was spotless. The notes provided on how to get in and operate everything were detailed. Other reviewers have stated that there were not enough kitchen utensils, pot/pans, tools etc. We did not find this to be the case. We had 8 people with us and cooked most of our meals there and did not find the kitchen wanting for anything. A few notes from us on how things could be improved: We were led to believe that there would be a dishwasher but upon arrival found it to be out of order. It would have been nice to have a heads up about this especially since there were no dish sponges left for us to do the dishes with. Paper products were very scarce. We had 8 people and the toilet paper and paper towels were pretty much gone by day 2. These are two very nit-picky things and of little consequence when looking at the grand scheme of our lovely mountain stay. Thanks again and have already recommended it to others!
Thank you for your review Michael. We're glad you enjoyed your stay and the spectacular view from our home. We apologise for the dishwasher not working during your stay and for not giving you prior warning. This was a communication error between us and Lowes. One of us thought the new dishwasher had been installed. Oops! There will be a new one installed this week. We do provide a starter supply of toilet tissue and paper towels, they generally last a couple of days, giving guests enough time to purchase more if needed. We hope you'll consider staying with us again.
Great location! Beautiful views and wonderful home!
A rainy weekend but a fabulous house. Well appointed and clean and cozy!
Thank you for your review Nancy.
Beautiful and Relaxing
The house is very nice and clean. We stayed with our family for a few days and enjoyed the view.
Thank you for your review Kristyna.
Spacious house close to Asheville and hiking
This is a large house with 3 bedrooms, high ceilings, living area etc. The views are nice, and it's a very convenient location. The house overall is clean, but could use updating. We've rented many vacation homes, and are always impressed by the little things provided by the owners or left behind in the kitchen by other guests -- basic spices, containers, a few staples in the pantry. This house has none of that. It did meet our needs for a home base near Asheville, but if I go back to the area, I might look for another place.
Thank you for your review Michelle. We do provide the basic necessities in the home, spices etc. Perhaps you couldn't find them? A three star review is out of character for this spectacular home with beautiful mountain and river views from the back deck.
Beautiful Views, Homey, and So Relaxing
We loved our Christmas stay at the Long Range Mountain Views house. As others have said, the house is super comfortable and the views are wonderful. The fireplace and the stonework is a work of art. We loved it so much we had a hard time going anywhere else. Being able to include our dogs in our Christmas vacation made it even more special. They even had a Christmas tree set up for us! The place was immaculate and had most everything you would want at your fingertips. Georgie was so helpful and accommodating. I can see that a couple of upgrades here and there would add to the home but we will definitely go back hopefully a couple of times this year. We would highly recommend this home.
Thank you for your kind review Bonnie. We look forward to having you back.
The property is nice, however, there were a few things that would have made the stay much better.
We cooked Thanksgiving dinner here, and found the kitchen utensils to be super disappointing compared to other homes we've rented. It was hard to find different utensils, and there were very few, very old utensils to cook with. Also, the only kitchen cleaning supplies that were available were a couple of bottles of Clorox wipes, which were dried up. We had to go purchase more supplies. The loft upstairs was unbearably hot, and super hard to comfortably sleep in. The overall property is nice, but compared to other properties in the area that we've stayed in that were much less, we were not as impressed.
Thank you for your review Kelly, however it does seem out of character for our home to receive three stars when compared to other four and five star reviews we've received. Hot air does rise, so the loft get's a little hotter than the other bedrooms. The fan has a different setting in winter to assist with air flow out of the loft. There are more cleaning supplies in the laundry cupboards to refill any items that are running low. The review just after yours mentions how well stocked the kitchen is - even so, we check everything regularly so will make sure everything is in good working order.
The Long Range Mountain View home is located 7 miles from downtown Asheville with easy access to I26 and Merrimon Avenue and only 5 miles to the quaint town of Weaverville. Weaverville has a lovely assortment of restaurants, cafe's, live music, nature walks, Lake Louise and an eclectic artistic scene. The road to the house is part paved and part compact gravel and has a mild incline - a beautiful drive year round, but especially in the fall. A grocery store, pharmacy, Pizza Hut and restaurants are only minutes from the house. There's plenty of parking for four cars.
