Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Mary's home was cozy and very comfortable , and as a host....she was the best . Quick 30 minute drive into Asheville, and some good restaurants closer in Weaverville and even Mars Hill. The kids had a great time tubing and hiking , and we found a great rock climbing gym nearby. Thanks Mary for a wonderful Stay - we'll be in touch to come back in June when we can see the fire flies off the back porch.

beautiful and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay over Christmas weekend. The cabin is private yet close to the ski slopes at Wolf Laurel and convenient to Asheville. We loved how clean everything was, it was spacious yet cozy, fully stocked with everything we could need, and decorated beautifully. The view is amazing and I think would be worth the trip to see it in each season!!! I cannot say enough about how special this cabin is to visit and I truly hope we can return.

Amazing property and location

  • 5 of 5

The host shows amazing hospitality from the beginning to end. I felt like I’ve known her forever! The property is on top of a mountain with some amazing views. Inside boast some of the best architecture I’ve seen that’s hand made and built. After reading about the property before booking, I wouldn’t have expected the archetectural perfection that I walked into. The amenities were amazing and to be able to have thanksgiving with the family, we wanted for nothing. Anything you need is in this place and the host would accommodate if it isn’t. The space is very open and spacious, great for families. Well situated where the sun hits it just right. Very well heated and the sun provides the natural heat it needs. All in all, I have to say I couldn’t have chosen a better cabin to spend Thanksgiving with th Family. Thank you Mary for being a great host.

We had a wonderful weekend at The Jennifer!

  • 5 of 5

The Jennifer cabin was the perfect place for our mountain weekend away this past weekend. Mary is such a warm and welcoming hostess and made sure everything about our stay was perfect! The cabin has such a “home away from home” feel, and the views from the floor to ceiling windows are absolutely beautiful - especially with a great back porch area - such a delight for early morning coffee! We enjoyed the fire pit area in the evenings and nearby hiking trails for daytime activities. We were also able to enjoy nearby Downtown Asheville for an arts festival and live music. It was such a wonderful weekend, many thanks to Mary and her beautiful home!!
