Overview

About the property

Three Bedroom, Two Bath & huge game and TV room With Incredible Mountain Views

Picture yourself sitting on the glassed/screened in porch at sunset, overlooking the Smoky Mountains, sipping a glass of complimentary wine. It does not get much better than this summer, winter, spring and fall. Our three bedroom two bath country cottage has all the modern conveniences and the charms of the country. If you are a couple looking to get away from it all or a multi generational family having a holiday get together, Bella Vista is right for you! The main floor has an open plan great room with a fully stocked large kitchen for preparing great meals for family and friends. In the summer spring and fall you will find pots filled with fresh herbs that are there for the picking...even tomatoes too! We have a lovely dining area with an antique farmers table and a large comfy living room with a gas fireplace and satellite TV,(although the view from the windows and the the glassed in porch with four rocking chairs off the living area provide great scenic beauty)...there are two bedrooms on the main floor with Queen beds, master bedroom has a bathroom with shower and tub. Lower floor has a bedroom with twin beds and a game room/satellite TV set up... gas heater, Ping Pong table and Pool table with plenty of room for the family. We have stocked the house with books, games, puzzles and DVDs for those nights you just want to stay in. There are three decks off the house, all with panoramic views; upstairs has a wood and charcoal burning grill and downstairs is a gas grill, fire pit and comfortable adirondak chairs for sitting and enjoying the view and the fresh air. There is a side lawn with fruit bearing trees if you are lucky enough to be there in season. We installed a brand new washer and dryer when we renovated in 2013 and the house is fully air conditioned in the summer (although you will want to throw the windows open for the crisp cool summer evenings) and furnace for the winter. This is a four seasons rental, we are set up comfortably for 6 people although we could sleep 8 ..all linens, toiletries, dishes, pots and pans and other essentials are provided...the cupboards are filled with spices, oils, vinegars, mustards and other mainstays to start you on your cooking experience. We have thrown great dinner parties and barbecues for friends and family.

About Richard Eisen

As a south Floridian, my husband spent his childhood summers in the Smokies, and always felt drawn to the area...I am a native New Yorker and had never been to the area until I married Richard 13 years ago...we had come up to the area 3 times before renting for three months last summer...we fell in love with the Hendersonville/Flat Rock area and decided to find a place of our own. We spend our winters in South Florida and now will be spending a lot of time in NC...it is a dream come true having this incredible house with a $5 million dollar view...and having the ability to share it with other like minded people.

Richard Eisen purchased this house in 2013

Why Richard Eisen chose Asheville Area

We spent a few weeks looking for a house, and we were beginning to think we were never going to find what we wanted...nothing seemed right. As we were about to look at another property, we had an unexpected detour in the road...and had to go out of our way...when we saw a small For Sale By Owner sign...we followed the road, saw the view and said this is it...and two weeks later we owned it...it was meant to be. We think everyone who stays here will feel the same...fresh clean mountain air, beautiful vistas from almost every room...and sunsets too magnificent to describe...the house is an open plan home with lots of light. There are hiking trails, golf, theater, shopping, dining nearby...no shortage of things for the whole family...and great dinners to be had with sunset cocktails on the closed in porch overlooking the valley and at least 7 mountain ridges

What makes this house unique

The house is on a paved road, maintained by the county and the state, it is 3000 feet up and quite private, but minutes away from Hendersonville and Flat Rock and the Blue Ridge Parkway and Pisgah National Forest...and a half hour from Asheville and the surrounding parks and recreation areas.

Charm and comfort

  • 5 of 5

We stayd at Bella Vista for five nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.Every detail is thought out, be it the soft and plentiful bath towels, the large dining table where we were able to sit around to eat and play games, the rocking chairs in the sun-room where we sat to watch the amazing sunsets! The well equipped kitchen meant we could cook up a storm in the evenings and the barbeque was a great asset. The peace and quiet was welcome and we all were able to relax in clean,fresh and beautiful surroundings.

Already Planning Our Next Trip

  • 5 of 5

My mother, sister, and I stayed here last weekend. We had lived in Asheville fifty years ago and have always loved the area. We truly enjoyed staying at Bella Vista. The extra touches made it feel like home. The view was amazing as we loved the porch. Richard and Andrea did a wonderful job of making things easy. The coffee in the morning, the gas grill and even the bottle of wine were amazing touches that made it feel right. We hope to avail ourselves to their hospitality again soon. It is a great base to visit Asheville, Hendersonville, and Brevard. We even made it up to Little Switzerland . It was a great short trip, with packing alot into it, while still being able to relax and enjoy nature. Thank you, Richard and Andrea.

Beautiful Setting

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Bella Vista very much. The house was comfortable, attractive, and clean and just right for our family of 4. We took full advantage of the beautiful mountain views during morning coffee and the sunset hour. We rode and hiked in DuPont Forest, had lunch in Brevard, shopped in downtown Hendersonville, read books, and completed a puzzle! The only suggestion is to add foam toppers to the mattresses to make them more comfortable. Thank you for a nice spring break weekend!

Great place, beautiful views - everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

Owners were very responsive from the initial inquiry through to check in / out. Detailed info pin the house, welcoming approach, etc.

This place feels like home. Large, clean, nicely decorated, and everything you need.

The house is only 10 - 15 mins to downtown Hendersonville for walking, shopping, etc. Everything very convenient. State and national parks / forests for hiking are close. And end the day with a sunset from the covered 3- 4 season porch facing west. Spectacular.

You can't go wrong with this place. Thank you for opening your home!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! The view is what attracted us to this home. Consider coming again in the fall when the view is made more spectacular by the fall foliage,
