About Owner/Manager

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.

Owner/Manager purchased this house in 2012

Why Owner/Manager 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have so enjoyed our time with our family at this beautiful mountain home! The view is spectacular and the house very comfortable with all the comforts of home. Seldom does a place exceed expectations, but this one did. We will certainly comeback is we can! Frank was a wonderful host.

Beautiful view, quiet escape

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Prayer Ridge. We were two couples from New York City, and arriving to fresh eggs and homemade bread was such a treat! The view is absolutely stunning, and I loved sitting on the porch in the evenings, taking it all in. The kitchen is fully equipped for meals in, but the locations is also great for heading to nearby spots for delicious local food.

Frank is a great host, and we would absolutely return to Prayer Ridge!

A few notes for future travelers:

1) The drive up can be a little intimidating - it's 3 curvy miles up on a very steep incline. Just a heads up.

2) Two of the three bedrooms are adjoined and don't allow for much privacy between them. One of those rooms has the best view in the house, so if you are a group, you might want to decide in advance who is sleeping where!

3) It's going to be significantly cooler up on the ridge than in town. Take this into account when packing.

4) The hot tub is great but can really only comfortably seat 3 people. 4 is possible, but it's going to be leg soup.

5) When you are at the house, you are sort of "confined" to the property. This means no exploring, wandering, etc. This was not a problem at all for us, but it might be important to know if you are looking for that!

Frank is *not kidding* when he tells you that The Local Joint has the best breakfast. It is outstanding.

The "K" Reunion -2016

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the Prayer Ridge House in a rainstorm - but that didn't dampen our enthusiasm for the house, the view or any of the amenities! What a view! The road is narrow and uphill & winding, but the journey is well worth the destination!! Don't miss this location if you are in the Asheville, NC area!!

Beautiful view, above-and-beyond hospitality

  • 5 of 5

We loved Prayer Ridge and enjoyed our stay. The farm-fresh eggs and baked bread were delicious! Frank set us up with discount tickets to the Biltmore and arranged a horseback ride for two of my party. He also made a special effort to show my 8-year-old niece and us his farm animals and baby chickens. The hot tub on the deck was relaxing with a beautiful view. The house was stocked with linens, dishes, cutlery, pots and pans, dishwasher, clothes washer, dryer, Wi-Fi and satellite TV, a few condiments and other necessities. What sold us most were the personal touches that is all but obsolete in today's world!

Nice and quiet

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing stay. Frank and his wife had bread baking and a dozen fresh eggs from their chickens waiting for us upon arrival. Nice house and fantastic views from every side of the house! Frank set up horseback riding for us and we had a blast. The people were very friendly.

Beautiful and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Nice clean, quiet, and cozy place to stay. Frank and his wife definitely have gone the extra mile to ensure comfort and suggest so many great local things to check out. There's so much to see and do, I just wish we could have stayed longer! Guess that means we will have to come back, oh darn!
