Why Nikki chose Leicester
We were thinking one day that we would love to have a place that we could just get away from our everyday busy lives, somewhere we could be away from the noise and commotion. After thinking we would like to look in the Tennessee a life long friend told us to explore the Asheville area and wow did we fall in-love quick. After going and looking around the area and staying in many hotels we thought, why not find a place we can build and not only have a place where we can call our own litte piece of paradise but also a place we can share with others where they can experience the same beautiful landscape we fell in-love with.

DO NOT BOOK THIS PROPERTY IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR PRIVACY!!!
My family and I booked this property in October to stay the week of New Years for 6 days. While in route we were told the dryer was broken, and we were not allowed to have any fireworks for the holiday. Ok, annoying but could deal with that. Upon arriving on a very steep drive way in the dark we had no exterior lights to unload our vehicle and had to use our phone lights. When we entered the home we immediately thought it was strange there were no blinds or any way to cover windows in the main living area. A few hours into our stay we started receiving messages that we had too many people in the house and their cameras and property management team picked up on it. WEIRD!!! I paid a lot of money to rent this property for 6 days and we packed up and left after staying less then 48 hours. They also tried charging another another 2 nights on top saying we were in violation of our contract. I'm sorry but they are in complete violation of my families privacy, and especially with children! If the owners and property management team is this strict about this property then they are clearly in the wrong business, and should not be renters. DO NOT BOOK THIS PROPERTY, I would not want anyone else's family vacation ruined like ours was.
***The owners and VRBO have done nothing to compensate us, or make any of our huge concerns right so beware when using this site to plan vacations!!!***
The listing indicates the driveway is steep! All of the guests we've had have enjoyed not having blinds or curtains blocking the mountain views. Blinds are on ALL bedroom windows of the home. Most, if not all home owners/rentals have security cameras as a protection. Once check-in is confirmed the cameras are disarmed allowing guests their privacy. This guest booked with 2 adults only listed on the reservation and had 8 people in the house. The listing states it is a max of 6 people. The other reviews speak for themselves, everyone has had positive and pleasant experiences. It's important to read details of listings and agreements before booking a stay.

Very great stay! House was exceptional
Greatly enjoyed our stay.
Wonderful home and view!
My husband and I just got back from a week trip in Asheville and stayed in this beautiful mountain home. The home itself is very nice, but the views are what makes it OUTSTANDING. The homeowners have a lower and upper deck and we spent many morning and evenings. soaking in the beauty and quiet around us. We even saw a few deer in the morning from the dining room windows. Just keep in mind that you are staying in a mountain top house and to be prepared by shopping on the way in and know that the town of Leicester is not just a few minutes away and Asheville is a bit further. However, the quiet and the views make this such a wonderful retreat.
Originally, we had reserved a RAV4 from the airport. However, after reading the reviews and hearing from the homeowners, we upgraded to a 4x4 and we were very glad we did. The actual driveway of the home itself is steep but well maintained. The main gravel road up to the few homes on this mountain top is what was in disrepair and really required the advanced vehicle. We hiked most days and saw lots of waterfalls. Did the wine tour of 3 vineyards. All were very nice but the view from Point Lookout Winery was by far the best. Enjoy!
We had a great time and the property was beautiful. I will say that if you have a front wheel drive vehicle you can get up the drive but if it is low to the ground it is very difficult. I have an impala and was able to get up the drive but was worried about scraping the bottom of my car so we did rent a 4wheel drive truck while staying at the property. I don't believe the owners have any control over the drive up to the house as I think it is a county road. Other than that the stay was amazing and the house is clean and gorgeous. Great communication from Nikki.
