Fantastic house!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay at Abundant Joy! Even the name was perfect for the occasion! We are six sisters who needed a break from reality and all met for the weekend to hike and relax. The house was close to everything we needed and wanted! It was well stocked with THE MOST COMFORTABLE BEDS AND PILLOWS!!! We will be making this our annual spot from now on! Thank you so much, Luanne!!!

Great home, beautiful view of the mountains!

  • 4 of 5

The house was in a great location. Very comfortable for 8 people. Needs a few minor touch ups in the home but besides that the house was very nice, clean and modern.

Owner's Response: Hi! Thanks for letting us know that a jet came out of the jacuzzi and that a hanging rack came out of the wall in the closet when you hung clothes on it. The rack was already fixed and the replacement jet has been ordered. We take great pride in keeping things tip top. We appreciate your review!

Very spacious and comfortable!

  • 4 of 5

My family spent Thanksgiving in Abundant Joy. It was very comfortable and spacious! We had everything we needed to prepare our Thanksgiving dinner. Enjoyed the fireplace. Plenty of wood available. The owner provided everything for s'mores. Nice treat! Some of us enjoyed the hot tub. The home was very clean. Would stay here again.

Perfect mountain weekend!

  • 5 of 5

It was the perfect house for a girls weekend! The house has it all - relaxing hang out areas, pool table, nice kitchen and very comfy beds. Downtown isn't too far away either. We will definitely be back!

Beautiful and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The house has a beautiful view and is quite private. The kitchen was spacious and had every utensil you could possible need. The bedrooms were large and had luxurious bedding. There was lots of room and linens downstairs for even more guests to sleep on extra memory-foam mattresses and couches. The town of Brevard was a quick drive away. I would definitely stay there again.

Relaxing fall vacation

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was very spacious and comfortable. The beds were very nice and I tried out one of the portable full-size mattresses and it was so nice that I decided I wanted to get one of my own. The towels were very soft and extra nice. We were a small party of three and the house could easily accommodate three times as many people and not feel cramped. The fire pit was great and so was the hot tub. I had a hard time getting my husband out of the hot tub-it was a big hit. The place was clean, the owner responsive and it was definitely a place we would come back to. We liked that the house was close to Brevard so that driving in for dining or shopping was easy but far enough away to enjoy the quiet outdoors.

Our favorites this trip: nearby breweries-Brevard, Sierra Nevada and Oskar Blues. Restaurants-Square Root and Marco's. Sweets-Bracken Mountain Bakery and Downtown Chocolates. All of the Pisgah Forest waterfalls are scenic-I think I have seen most of them. Pottery-Mud Dabbers Pottery has a large selection of local pottery.

I would definitely recommend this place to people I know.
