Guestbook comments from the manager

Loved, loved, loved the kitchen, especially the island, and open floor plan. It was great having a TV in each room so we could separate if needed. The property is beautiful. We appreciated having the firewood if needed. It was also nice to have wifi

Great Space

Close enough to town but feels secluded in the mountains! We love the spaciousness for several families to share!

Great house, great loacation, upscale touches

  • 5 of 5

The house was amazing! It was the perfect size for our 6 adults and one child plus our dogs. It was close to Asheville but had lots of privacy in the woods. The bedrooms were huge, bathrooms amazing and there were lots of upscales touches. The only issue we had was having to leave! We would have stayed forever!

Absolutely fabulous family weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We just checked out today so I wanted to write this while it was fresh on my mind. We rented this house for 3 nights in January 2017. 6 adults and 4 children. The house was very well appointed, they thought of everything! The kitchen was very well equipped, there were even spices for use if needed. My only suggestion would be to have a couple of sponges there, a new spatula and maybe 1 more serving bowl. But really, they even had a crock pot there. The fridge is a generous size, and the kitchen island was a great gathering spot for all.

Outdoor/Garage area: The hot tub is huge and was always at 102 degrees. The fire pit was great and we made a fire two nights. (Firewood available down the street) The garage had a ping pong table and we used it a few times and had a lot of fun. We did not take advantage of the hiking trails around the property.

Inside/main living areas: Ample dining space. Living room has cozy leather furniture that reclines. Wifi worked- it was slow at times but probably because we had several devices going. We did not use the fireplace in the living room.

Bedrooms: 4 ample bedrooms, the master was HUGE and had an insanely large bathroom! 2nd bedroom was a nice master, 3rd bedroom basic but nice, 4th bedroom with queen bunks was perfect for the kids, and the common bathroom had nice high ceilings.

Cleanliness: overall the house was very clean. No issues here

Driveway: this property is off a main road, the driveway is rock/dirt. Shouldn't be an issue 98% of the time. We had no problem at all getting to the house, I could see how a snow day may make access a little more difficult. It took us about 15 minutes to get to the Biltmore and 20 mins to downtown. There is an Ingles grocery store close by if you need necessities.

We had a great time and wouldn't hesitate to rent this house again. We really enjoyed our stay here!
