Awesome views!

  • 5 of 5

This is a modern way to feel like you are living in the woods. We didn't see a bear but did see a turkey! Owners are very responsive to questions and we would love to stay here again. I will never be able to say enough about the views!

Convenient Location & Cozy

  • 5 of 5

Very close to Tunnel Rd, so getting around was simple. The mountain views were astonishing and the trail near the house, though steep in some areas, is very nice. On the first morning, we saw a bear passing through the backyard and there was a flock of turkeys that frequented the area when we were there. We also saw a ton of ladybugs, which seemed to be getting inside somehow when the weather warmed up a bit (however, this didn't bother us any since they were only downstairs near the windows and harmless!).

The rental unit itself is peaceful and cozy. It was stocked with the essentials and was pretty clean. My only complaint is that the toilet paper left in the bathroom was thinner than tissue paper and certain areas in the bath upstairs (toilet, counter) could've been cleaned a little better. Overall, this rental was still much nicer than any hotel I've stayed at and is a great option for anyone looking for a relaxing place to stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. The TP is a septic safe that is why we use it. I will pass on the cleaning details to the cleaner that should not happen, sorry. When the weather get cold the ladybugs want a warm place.

Nice Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

The accomodations were just as described. The duplex was very clean and close to Asheville, the Biltmore, the Blue Ridge Parkway and other places of interest. It was very quiet with beautiful mountainous views which were much enjoyed as we are from the Midwest. It was a great "home away from home".
