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.

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.

A Perfect Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My cousins and I loved our stay in the mountains. The house was large enough for all of us and yet was cozy and welcoming. We loved the swinging beds on the screened porch, the hot tub, the fully equipped kitchen, the generous supply of towels, and so much more. We were close to shopping, hiking, and entertainment. Wonderful cabin!

Perfect!

The house was amazing and the owner really paid attention to detail! Fresh eggs and homemade bread were just the beginning! Great linens and fully stocked kitchen. The hot tub was ready and the fireplace had wood. Will be booking here again!

Location, Location, Location - Exceeded our Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Perfect locations for all of activities. We really enjoyed the Biltmore tour (we purchased our tickets through Frank and saved money). The Hop on and Hop off Trolley Tour of Asheville is a must and the restaurants Frank recommended were delicious. We drove the Blue Ridge Parkway to Blowing Rock. The location of The Huntley is close enough to go down to Chimney Rock and Lake Lure. We also did some shopping in the outlying towns like Hendersonville and Black Mountain. We are already planning our next trip.

Peaceful retreat !

  • 4 of 5

Frank and his family do an amazing job of making you feel welcomed. And yes, the farm fresh eggs DO taste much better than those from the supermarket. My only negative was one of the rooms upstairs was more like a loft and I didn't realize that. But we were too tired and fell fast asleep. Also, the roads leading to the house are in need of repair. Several deep and long potholes that need to be addressed. Other than that, Frank and his crew provide everything.

Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

The rental is exactly as described. It was very clean and very comfortable. Beautiful, quiet location. Hot tub was awesome. Frank is very gracious, responsive and helpful. We had never been to this part of North Carolina and were so pleased with our accommodation choice and location. Convenient to Asheville. LOVED the host's recommendations for horseback riding (very close, friendly people, beautiful ride), a local eatery (The Local Joint, you should try it!), and Asheville eateries. Saved $10 each on two Biltmore tickets, by buying in advance through Frank. We have rented through VRBO for years, and this was an excellent experience.
