About Frank Dixon

After retiring from a 33 year career in sales management/ marketing, we visited our eldest daughter Etta and fell in love with Asheville. We moved to the Asheville Area in 2002 and lived in the house that became our first rental, “Our House.” Soon to follow, came our youngest daughter, Farris, and her now husband Danny. In 2009 their daughter Aylssa arrived, making this a true family business.

Frank Dixon purchased this house in 2011

Why Frank Dixon chose Asheville Area

We fell in love with Asheville and all it has to offer. We then decided to share the beauty of the Asheville Area and the hospitality of the Smokey Mountains with others. “Our House” and “My Roundette” were on the property when we originally bought it. Both have since been remodeled. We then purchased additional land and built “My Place,” “The Huntley,” and “The Garden Cabin.” “Log Gap” and “Prayer Ridge” were both bought at separate locations. Both were extensively remodeled.

What makes this house unique

The benefit of staying at “The Cove at Fairview” is the unique experience. Each home offers you a different experience in small ways – outdoor fireplaces, swinging beds, and a fifty mile view are just a few. Also, enjoy waterfalls, Koi Ponds, Lotus Flowers, horses, chickens (enjoy fresh eggs), native plants, & flower gardens.

By staying here, you are nestled into all of the beautiful natural settings in this peaceful cove.

While being very private and close to nature, you are still afforded all of the conveniences of technology and are located near all this area has to offer. Truly a place to come and renew yourself. Kick back, relax, and have a true retreat or a wonderful place to land after an exhausting day of fun.

Beautifully decorated - very well maintained property located in between Asheville and lake lure

  • 5 of 5

Photos accurately depict the property located in a private neighborhood well off the hwy - you will not see or hear any neighbors - it was a nice touch that owners provide a thorough guide to local activities and dining which we consulted often during our stay

Excellent Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at the Huntley House! Great location, perfect house. We loved the screened in porch! The kitchen was also a wonderful place to cook. Frank was an excellent host... the homemade bread and farm fresh eggs he provided made for a delicious breakfast. We'll definitely be returning soon.

Fabulous vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

The Cove at Fairview was an amazing place to spend a week. The location was perfect! We were able to explore downtown Asheville, spend the day at the Biltmore, rent a pontoon boat on Lake Lure and explore the beautiful countryside. We arrived to the smell of fresh bread and the house was spotless and comfortable. The swinging beds were the perfect place to relax as the sun came up in the morning and set in the afternoon. Frank was so friendly and knowledgeable. He had wonderful suggestions and was happy to give us tour of the property. It was a great family vacation and we hope to return.

Great Family Summer Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Location, Location, Location! This property is a Home Run. Our family flew from Las Vegas, as my brother in law & his family came from Florida. This property is tucked away on a hillside, surrounded by North Carolina's beautiful nature. But don't let this fool you. You will be 15-30 minutes away from Everything! We visited the Biltmore, went white water rafting on the French Broad river and explored Chimney Rock & Lake Lure. Our children loved this house. We played pool, relaxed in the jacuzzi and they had fun looking for insects and worms. The house was very well stocked with coffee, fluffy towels & spa like robes. One of the nicest vacations we have ever had.

VRBO Review

  • 5 of 5

Wow! I can not say enough great things about this house! We stayed for a bachelorette girls getaway weekend and had a great time! Frank really takes the time on the small details including farm fresh eggs, baked bread, and a robe for every girl to lounge in. This house was conveniently fully stocked with everything we could have needed dish soap, laundry detergent, firewood, lots of kitchen utensils and more! We had a great time in Asheville and it was very easy getting back and forth to town. I honestly can not say one bad thing about this house, it was just perfect!

Fabulous and Fun!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation home was clean, well-equipped, and obviously well cared for. The design of the Huntley was perfect for my adult children who needed their space, and the hot tub and pool table were popular with my family. Frank welcomed us upon our arrival and left fresh eggs and home-made bread, which were delicious. He remained available by phone to answer any questions during our stay. I will definitely rent from him again when I return to Asheville. He takes pride in his properties.
