Very comfortable just like home

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this property. Nancy and Jose are excellent hosts. Couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay. Came up to Mars Hill to escape the warm weather and to get a glimpse of the fall colors. We will be back soon. Thanks for making our stay so enjoyable.

Great home in a great area

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for our family to stay. The house is very comfortable and extremely clean. The price was very reasonable (especially when comparing with cleaning and other fees). And the area was beautiful- secluded without being too far from Asheville. We had a wonderful time!

The house was extremely clean, neat, well furnished and obviously well kept.

  • 5 of 5

The property is convenient to Asheville but far enough away to experience quiet mountainside evenings. The nightly display of "lightning bugs" in the trees was pure splendor! It is a perfect environment for a family desiring the flexibility of enjoying meals together at the house or adventuring to the nearby towns for hikes and waterfalls.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this property. House was extremely clean and well stocked and Nancy was more than welcoming. Response time is quick with questions and the fresh muffins were a hit! If we are back in the area we are definitely going to stay here again.

Great Ski Trip!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time staying at this property. If touring the Mars Hill, Laurel Valley, Weaverville, or Asheville area then check out this rental. It is a clean, well maintained 3/2 with a garage and has been perfect for my needs on two trips to the area. The owner responds quickly and everything is as advertised. I had another great stay in the area and will definitely rent again if the property is available.

Very very nice home in an awesome setting!!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful weekend we had staying at this Mountain home in Western NC. Following Mars Hill baseball this is the PERFECT location to the campus. It's not far from the interstate but far enough that you feel and see the mountain views all around. Nancy was wonderful and very accommodating and her communication prior to arrival was wonderful. We are looking forward to going back again to enjoy this home. The only downside was the satellite TV did not have ESPN which is a must when you have a 'sports family' but to many this would not be important. The only other thing we would have enjoyed was WIFI but they do not have access to this due to the location of the home. These 2 things would not keep me from returning, because it was such an awesome place. Thanks for everything and hope to see you again Nancy.
