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.

Perfect for an Asheville Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

From first inquiry to check out Frank was an amazing host! He even helped us out when our truck got a nail in the tire. 10 stars to Frank!

Fairview was the perfect location for our trip. We spent 3 days exploring town and we had no problems catching an Uber or Lyft.

House was super clean and all the beds were comfy! Be sure to spend at least one night grilling out steaks from Hickory Nut Gap Farm and grab some bacon for Breakfast! amazing.

Breathtaking

  • 5 of 5

This property is better than the description. The owners have thought of everything. I would certainly recommend this property. It is close to town but far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet. This was a family vacation with adult children. Lots to do in Asheville and it was nice to come back and build a fire in the outdoor fireplace. The owner provides wood, but if you run out you can purchase more. I would highly recommend this property.

Had an incredible time. Frank was a great host and made sure we were well looked after. The place is beautiful and so peaceful! Close to everything and the hobby farm close-by was so pretty - the animals were happy to see us! We will definitely be back if Frank will have us!

Amazing home with lots of attention to details

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 5 women staying 3 days for a "fall getaway". The house was perfect for our trip. Great location about 10-15 min to downtown Asheville. the house is gorgeous. We arrived to the smell of fresh baked bread and Frank gave us a quick tour. He brought a dozen eggs from his farm which is worth a quick stop to see the animals and koi ponds. On the lower level is a bedroom and bath. Just outside of that is an outdoor fireplace and a pool table. On the mail level is the beautiful kitchen and living room with wood burning fireplace and a screened in porch with 2 swinging beds (we loved these even with the chilly nights we were snug in the extra blankets that were available). There is also another patio with a gas grill that is situated across from the waterfall fountain and a great place for evening wine and star watching. Upstairs there are two full sized beds on the landing and the master suite We loved the extra attention to detail, the bathrobes for the hot tub were a big hit. Frank was the perfect host, got us discount tickets to the Biltmore helped us with the firewood and was available if needed. We would all highly recommend the Huntley or any of Franks other properties.
