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

Amazing and suitable for an eight women get away!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in the dark and it was a shining beacon after a long day of travel. It was all lighted up and welcoming. Our group has rented many houses together and this, by far, was the best. It had everything stocked for us like toilet paper enough to last us a week, a hairdryer under every bathroom sink, liquid hand soap for each sink, liguid dish soap and dishwasher soap and even all laundry supplies. Rob the caretaker was ever so helpful even building us a fire one night in the pit. He came out immediately to fix a blown circuit. The beds were so comfortable with plenty of pillows and blankets. We loved the semicircle island that seated ten. We can't say enough nice things about the place. It was close to Asheville but so secluded. The driveway was bumpy and a little adventurous but manageable for us women. If we were in the area we would certainly rent it again. There is nothing we can say negative about the property.

Wow! This is the most awesome house for a mountain getaway. We went for three days with My father and mother in law and husband's sister, husband and children. Fun from the get go!! House is fully stocked for all your cooking needs. Plenty of room to relax together or with the entire family!! Hot tub is outrageous fun.. Left with plans of going same time next year. Truly fell in love with this place..

Comfortable Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable accommodations hidden away in the mountains, large wood burning fireplace, outdoor fire pit, and good grill. Big Kitchen, great flat screen TV, good bedrooms and bathrooms, and plenty of room overall. Quiet, clean, and comfortable. A family of Bobcats outside our window on the last day was icing on this delicious cake.

The house was gorgeous, just as pictured and so clean. We had every amenity we could have needed or wanted. This was perfect for our girls trip, we each had our own room, everything appeard to be new or rennovated. Be aware that although it's not far from downtown it does take a good 20-25 minutes due to curvy and winding roads. We found so many wonderful restaurants in Asheville although parking was difficult so you may want to add an additional 5-10 minutes if you are going downtown. We had a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend to others!

I couldn't imagine anything better!

  • 5 of 5

There isn't too much more I can say that isn't already said in previous reviews. This house is perfect. The mattresses are comfortable. The fire pit and hot tub were perfect. The distance to town was great. I could go on and on. One of the best properties that we have ever stayed in away from home. I will definitely return and recommend to many others.

Amazing place!!

  • 5 of 5

As many of the other reviewers have said, this house is amazing! Better even than our expectations - the second we walked in the word out of everyone's mouth was "WOW"! I could go on and on about the house, but just read the other reviews! :) We came to Asheville just in time for the snowzilla blizzard (not planned) and ended up getting snowed in for essentially our entire trip. While this isn't what we had planned (the house being only 15 mins from downtown Asheville we were going to go into town every day), we were totally comfortable. We had stocked up on groceries, the property manager was excellent about keeping us stocked with wood for the fireplace, and since there was satellite TV we were able to watch movies in between playing cards and games. The owner was so helpful, from the very beginning straight through to the end with anything we may have needed or if we had any questions. We will most definitely be back and we've bragged about it to all of our friends!
