Newly constructed one bedroom home in the heart of Madison county. Located twenty five minutes from either Asheville or Hot Springs, this eclectically designed modern home is a calming retreat.

This home is located on 52 private acres with rolling hay fields, hiking trails with beautiful mountain views, and is home to a civil war cemetary for you to explore.

If you choose to dine out there are many accessible restaurants whether you explore historic downtown Marshall, Hot Springs, or downtown Asheville.

The property is located within minutes from white water rafting, hiking, and zip lining as well as a 500 acre horseback trail riding farm . . . And you may find a garnet or ruby near the old mines!

The bedroom has a king bed with Egyptian Cotton sheets and big fluffy goose down pillows. The living room has a quality queen pull out and an additional air-mattress for extra comfort. Lots of extra pillows, and blankets, quilts and comforters.

The Kitchen was designed by the owner-chef-catererand is fully equipped with cooking utensils, cutlery, pots & pans, glass and stemware, serving pieces, Blue Willow China, antique silver flatware and linen napkins. The dining area seats 8 comfortably but can accommodate 10 plus 3 at the bar.

House in the Hollar

  • 5 of 5

Let me start out by saying this place was everything I hope that it would be. It is definitely a house in the holler. The house itself had its own charm. The kitchen was great, it had everything that you could possible need to cook and 4 course meal. The openness of the house made it feel like everybody was still together whether you were in the kitchen or listening to CD's in the living area. The house was very clean, the kingsize bed was awesome and very comfortable. It made getting to sleep very easy. I loved the balcony!! Every morning we could go out on the balcony and watch the deer as they grazed down in the holler or up on the side of the mountain. It truly made my time off well worth it. I would most DEFINITELY give this place 5 ***** stars. Not to mention the owner McRae is one of akind. He is the most sweet guy, he went out of his way to make sure that we had everything that we could possible need. So if you are looking for a place to just Get Away, I highly recommend the House in the Hollar!!!!!!!! And McRae we will definitely see you again :)

The little house was great. Clean, nicely decorated for Christmas and homey. We brought our puppies with us and they loved walking over the hills.

Lovely and remote, but still close to tons of fun!

  • 5 of 5

Why are you still reading reviews? Book McRae's lovely home at once! It's comfortably and stylishly designed and decorated - a great place to live and rest and lounge and play for as long as you're able! The kitchen is fabulously appointed, and the open design allows for entertaining and being together. The property is beautiful, and wonderfully isolated - at least 1/4 mile off of a gravel road, and then another good ways to a paved road. We were grateful to just be able to open the door and let our dog roam! Asheville is only a scenic 30 minute drive away, and there are tons of great hikes in the area, including local timber roads which your host will guide you toward. McRae is a kick - warm and welcoming, and thoughtful to the nth degree... He had English Muffins and other foodie odds-and-ends waiting for us upon arrival, and he provided additional sheets and blankets, candles, flowers out of his own garden, and even a turkey roasting pan for our Thanksgiving meal! Ask him for all the local dish - he's happy to provide! We'll absolutely return next time we need a peaceful stay in the greater Asheville area. Thanks McRae!

The house in the holler was wonderful. The pictures don't do it justice. A perfect place to relax

  • 5 of 5

McRae was Great. He welcomed us when we arrived, made sure we had everything that we needed and gave us a quick tour of the wonderful property. He has thought of every detail ( fresh flowers, toilet paper, shampoo etc were provided). McRae has spent his life in the hospitality industry and it shows. If you are looking for a place to get away from it all and relax this is it. 25 minutes from downtown Asheville's great food, music, and shopping. Can't say enough good things about our weekend at the house or McRae. Looking forward to visiting again in the near future.

Marshall is a quiet little town. There are two coffeeshops-Zuma serves breakfast and lunch and the other, Sweet Monkey is open for dinner, too. They are closed on Tuesdays.

This part of the world is renown for its artists and craftsmen and there are regularly studio strolls at Marshall High Studios on Blanahassett Island, in Marshall. There are also regular concerts at the Madison County Arts Council and Zuma hosts a regular Thursday night bluegrass jam which is overseen by Grammy-award winning fiddler and local legend, Bobby Hicks. The Depot is another haven for bluegrass music lovers.
