We named our mountain home “Almost Heaven” because when we are there, that is exactly what it feels like to us. At 3,000 feet in elevation, we are close to the stars at night, to the clouds by day and we are witness to gorgeous sunrises and sunsets all year long. When the summer heat is burning up the low lands we have fresh, cool breezes and even sweater weather in the evenings. We look out 40 miles to Mt. Mitchell in the north, ten mountain ranges to where the sun sets in the west and 60 miles to a flat line in the south. We are surrounded by nature, astronomy and meteorology, yet we are a short 35 minute drive to Biltmore House and the excellent restaurants of downtown Asheville, and 20 minutes from Black Mountain and its quaint shops, restaurants, and gigantic grocery stores. We hear the wind in the leaves and catch the sweet smell of Rhododendron and Mountain Laurel in the springtime; we pick wild blackberries in the summer and listen to songbirds all day. We frequently encounter deer, wild turkey and even bobcats, yet we live in a modern, luxurious home with a gourmet kitchen, satellite TV, instant hot water, wonderful beds and mattresses, and windows everywhere to frame the beauty that is all around us. Our home is built for both togetherness and privacy: the family room has a monumental stone fireplace surrounded by leather sofas, the covered side porch serves as an outdoor dining area, the basement offers ping-pong and Foosball tables and three-quarters of the home is surrounded by decks and rockers – while every one of the four bedrooms has its own private porch for personal conversation or quiet reading time away from the larger group. It is the best of all worlds: natural, yet very civilized; remote yet convenient; private yet communal. It is Almost Heaven. We would love to share it with you!

Fantastic cabin!! The pictures were fabulous, but it's better in person! We had a great vacation

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect- the cabin was clean, roomy & had the most spectacular views! It was more than expected. The drive up the mountain was well worth it ( be prepared to cook meals & bring groceries) the kitchen was beautiful & well equipped, the beds were super comfortable- we'll definitely stay here again!

Views are surreal. Perfect getaway location.

  • 5 of 5

Four couples enjoyed our weekend in this home. The kitchen provided all the items we needed for cooking meals in. The deck was large enough for us to all enjoy the views and our company. The property was clean, well maintained and comfortable. We hope to be repeat renters!
