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 :)

Nice little hideaway to escape to

  • 5 of 5

The place was AMAZING! My boyfriend and I took our dogs up here for NYE. McRae met us and gave us the rundown on how to use multiple things around the house. There was a GINORMOUS Christmas tree up still, which was absolutely gorgeous and really added to our holiday get away. McRae had also just set up the WiFi and cable, so we were able to relax indoors and still feel like we weren't cooped up because of the FREEZING weather. Great place for dogs, too! We were able to let our dogs off-leash and run around to their heart's content. If you want an escape to a truly beautiful and comfortable place that's within a quick driving distance to Asheville, look no further!

True Definition of Southern Hospitality! Simply Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at house on the holler was nothing short of amazing. I will get into details of the property, however, I first need to speak about our amazing host. Mr. Roberts began by texting us detailed directions. Upon our arrival, Mr. Roberts welcomed us with open arms, gave us a great tour of the property and the amenities available in the house. He treated us like family. He left cookies and cakes in the kitchen for us to eat. He had shampoo, soap, and other toiletries available to use. On the last day of our stay he set up a bonfire for us to light, along with a decadent apple bread pudding made fresh by him!!! He gave us recommendations on what to do during Christmas and where to go. I have to say Mr. Roberts completely outdid himself with the gigantic Christmas tree that was beautifully decorated in the living room. The tree made our Christmas a very memorable one!

Now on to the property itself.It was amazing! Very spacious with an open floor plan. The house is a little secluded from other homes, which we enjoyed very much. It was spotless!! My mom is a clean freak....not a speck of dust!!! The kitchen had all the utensils needed to create a 6 course meal! Mr. Roberts allowed us the use of his spices and anything we could get our hands on. As a matter of fact he encouraged us to explore his home and become familiar with his trinkets! There was cable TV, books, games, you name it the house on the holler had it. We planned to visit Asheville more often, however, the house was so amazing we couldn't get enough of it!!! Which is why from now on we will only stay at this house. The scenery was amazing! Overall, I would have to say that if you are thinking twice about booking this house....don't, you will not regret it. You may never want to leave! I can go on all day about Mr. Roberts and house on the holler, however, I feel like these words will not do it any justice!! 10 STAR HOSPITALITY!!!

Private, cozy, well equipped cabin

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay, perfect for a couple's getaway. The house is situated so that you cannot see any other house in any direction, so it is very private. The main room which consists of the living room, dining room, and kitchen, has a wonderful open feel and is suitable for entertaining up to 8 people comfortably. The kitchen was very well equipped, complete with convection oven and gas range. The porch is wonderful for sitting and sipping coffee in the morning overlooking the land. Our dogs enjoyed running around on the hilly meadow in front of the house as well. The bed was also very comfy and had lots of big fluffy pillows. And while we only spoke on the phone, McRae was an excellent host who made us feel right at home and made sure we had what we needed. We will definitely be back!

Amazing, utterly amazing.

  • 5 of 5

This place is everything we could have ever wanted. We will absolutely be coming back and most likely stay longer. McRae is such a pleasant and hospitable host. The property is beautiful and private, and the views are incomparable. A little piece of my heart was left at this cabin.

Simply unforgettable.

Beautiful Private getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Had a great weekend getaway here . Property is very private/secluded and dog friendly. Owner was attentive if needed but not overly so. Bed was very comfortable and home has a nice eclectic feel with everything we needed for a getaway. Will definitely return.

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.

The property is located in a rural area surrounded by neighboring farms off of a well maintained State owned gravel road. A car is necessary, Uber and taxi service FROM Asheville to the Holler is also available.
