About Frank Dixon

After retiring from a 33 year career in sales management/ marketing, we visited our oldest 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.” (We built a cabin on the property and moved into it). Soon to follow, came our youngest daughter, Farris, and her now husband Danny. In 2009 their daughter Alyssa arrived and in 2015 Haley was born, making this a true family business.

Frank Dixon purchased this house in 2011

Why Frank Dixon chose Fairview

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, more remote 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, a Lotus Pond, horses, chickens (enjoy fresh eggs), donkeys, goats, 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 (downtown is only 15 minutes away).

Wonderful mountain getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The house was in beautiful location! The owner payed attention to every detail - fresh eggs, freshly baked bread, robes, firewood, comfy beds, well-appointed kitchen - I could go on! Sleeping on the swinging beds on the screened porch was so nice, listening to the waterfall and nature noises. The fluffy blankets on those beds kept us warm on cool nights.We had a wonderful girls weekend, staying mostly in Fairview since there are so many great local spots. I am only disappointed that we couldn't stay longer to enjoy the house even more!

Adorable and Quaint

  • 5 of 5

The Cove at Fairview is a gorgeous little quaint farm that far exceeded our expectations! Frank provided us with a dozen eggs, a fresh loaf of bread, a tour of the property, introduced us to all of his critters, and all the little necessities needed for a "home away from home" getaway! We truly enjoyed- and got the most use out of- the hot tub! The area is nice and quiet and has a wonderful view of the stars at night! We will definitely keep his property at the top of our list, should we ever find ourselves back in Asheville!
