About Steve and Louise
We bought this 40-acre farm in 2010 and finished building the vacation rental September 2013. We are so excited because having a farm with a vacation rental has long been a dream of ours! We have a small herd of French Alpine dairy goats and plenty of chickens at our home on the other side of the property.
Steve and Louise purchased this House in 2013
Why Steve and Louise chose Asheville
I moved to the area 20 years ago to attend college at Warren Wilson College. I left for 5 years to attend graduate school in Seattle, and though Seattle was a wonderful place, we couldn't wait to get our family back to the area. We have now been back since 2002 and watched this amazing town burgeon into a fun and popular tourist destination. This property is one of the few of its kind: a large parcel of land within 1 mile of Asheville city limits and only 10 minutes to the center of downtown.
What makes this House unique
This property is unique because you have access to beautiful spaces indoors and out. You also have access to woods and meadows, trees and views. It just depends where you decide to spend your time while you are here. This house is also unique because it is situated on a farm, yet it so close to downtown Asheville and Biltmore Village. There are very few properties that can boast this fact. Most larger tracts are much further away or on steep land. This land is rolling and great for exploring. Also, our land virtually backs up onto the Blue Ridge Parkway land, just look at the map. The entrance to the Parkway is only about 2 miles away and is the entrance where the Folk Art Center is. This is a great place to visit while you are here. There are hiking trails both on the Parkway and at Warren Wilson College, which is only a few short miles away. We also have some short trails here on the property.

Beautiful view. Perfect location.
We wanted a cabin/house with a view. We also wanted a place that was only 10-15 minutes away from all the action. This spot was perfect! 10 minutes from beautiful hikes on the Blue Ridge Parkway. 12 minutes from downtown restaurants and hot spots.
Comfortable beds. Rocking chairs on the porch. Ultra modern appliances. We had absolutely everything we needed.
Beautiful, immaculate property and very well equipped. You have the feeling that you are miles away from civilization but are, in fact, only a 5 -10 minute drive to restaurants and grocery store. Owner very pleasant and responsive. Would definitely recommend.
I rented this home for a team retreat and everyone had enough room, everything they needed! Steve and Louise are awesome hosts, gave some great ideas for dining in the area as well.
We really enjoyed our stay in Asheville!
The property was amazing - very clean, tidy, welcoming and equipped. The views were beautiful - we didn't want to leave. The property owners were awesome - offered us recommendations before and during our vacation. We couldn't have picked a more perfect place to stay. It's close to downtown Asheville and to the Biltmore as well as close to plenty of hiking, waterfall exploring and vista viewing. Definitely plan to return!
(Grown) Family Mountain/Ashville Vacation
The property and house are wonderful - Everything we hoped to have in our vacation away.
The views from the porch are extraordinary. We spent a great deal of time between our excursions on the porch reading, talking, and eating.
There were 5 adults and we had plenty of space. Space to be together and to be apart.
We enjoyed making a fire in the outdoor fire pit 2 of the 4 nights. All wood, fire-making supplies, and forks for S'mores were provided.
Plenty of games provided. Kitchen was very well appointed.
The communication and helpfulness of the owners was excellent. We lacked for nothing.
The only "wish" we had for this property was a slightly larger shower in the master bathroom. It was a bit tight and we are not large people. That said, the shower would never keep us from not coming back.
Make sure to walk down and have a snack or drink at the picnic table on the lower property. The view is amazing.
Lovely, restful setting!
This property is located within 10 minutes of the HEART of downtown Asheville, yet is on the edge of a 40 acre property and a few short minutes from the entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway. The setting is rural, but not remote. The house itself is in a cleared wooded area and gets a lot of light.
We are within a couple miles of restaurants, a drugstore and a large supermarket. We are also close to many trails for hiking including the Mountains to Sea Trail.
