Guestbook comments from the manager

We booked this property in order to spend a long weekend showing our two foreign exchange students the Asheville area. Turned out to be a delightful accommodation, first class, with all amenities. We did not get to enjoy the fire pit with our girls, because it wound up snowing that night. But that led to them building two cute snowmen. Our hosts are simply wonderful people. We would definitely stay there again!

Comfy, cozy!!

Comfortable and cozy. Diane and Dick thoughtfully provided breakfast food, and the kitchen was very well equipped. Beautiful art, quiet and serene, and within easy distance of everything we wanted to visit. Chris and Ronny

Simply Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

I just returned home from an amazing 5 day stay at Dick and Diane's beautiful home and the first thing I wanted to do was make sure I wrote a review. I arranged a Girl's Trip a few months ago with 4 of my friends, and when I was looking for homes to rent, I kept coming back to Dick and Diane's house. Something about the look of the house drew me in and once I sent the link to my girlfriends they all agreed this house was the one! When we arrived Dick and Diane gave us a tour of the house and it was even more beautiful than we anticipated. I am an Artist so I appreciate beautifully decorated homes. Diane's Art just memorized me the entire time I was there, in fact I can't wait to hang the piece I will be ordering from her soon. I couldn't help it! I just had to have her piece "Franny's Flying Circus".. The house is decorated in her work and it just captivates you. Besides the look of the house, the comfort is amazing as well. Oh that kitchen!! It is fully stocked with everything and anything you will need to cook and bake. We had breakfast at the house each morning and would you believe we didn't have to purchase a thing for breakfast! When we got there Diane and Dick had it all stocked for us: coffee, creamer, eggs, milk, orange juice, bagels and even a really yummy blueberry coffee cake.. it was so nice to have these items and not have to go out shopping for them. Instantly I knew I would feel at home during our stay. I travel a lot and I have never had anyone purchase breakfast items before. What a nice gesture! The bedrooms are great and the beds are super comfortable. It was nice having a bathroom in our room and one in the hallway.. We never had to wait to take turns. We utilized every room in the house on different nights .. we played Scattergories in the book room one night and chatted in the living room on the next night and swam in the pool on our last night. The pool is awesome and warm! We sat around the fire pit in the outside garden area most nights, it was truly just a wonderful. Dick and Diane's gorgeous pups greeted us quickly in the mornings and they are just the sweetest dogs ever! Dick gave us some information on the area and some magazines so that we can plan our days. They were both so warm and friendly.. it was like staying with your family and we loved that. Thank you Dick and Diane for being such gracious hosts. I can't wait to come back with my Fiance' and enjoy your home a little more.

Great comfort in Asheville!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 6 wonderful nights at Diane and Dick's beautiful home. They were so hospitable and gracious, and we felt so comfortable there. The house is filled with Diane's wonderful art, and that artistic feeling carries through the home. The house has all the comforts to satisfy anyone. This was the best vacation rental we have stayed in. We hope to return someday.

So Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

I recently booked this property for a girls get away weekend. The owners are on sight but their quarters are divided to assure privacy for guests and home owners. They were quite wonderful to talk to and extremely helpful. Diane's art is quite beautiful and I really enjoyed the house décor and only wished we could have stayed much longer. The driveway is on the steep side and parking is a little tight. I drive a Honda CRV and was fine getting in and out but a larger vehicle may want to consider street side parking. The kitchen has absolutely everything and we really felt quite at home. I hope to visit again very soon!
