About the property

Amazing views, close to downtown, beautiful new house and property

IF YOU DON'T SEE THE DATES YOU WANT, CONSIDER OUR OTHER LISTING! #685155. It is on the same property, and is virtually identical!


This home has an open floor plan, lots of light and hardwood floors. The house is clean, modern, and comfortable.

The master has its own bathroom, a queen bed and large windows that look out into the woods and gardens.

The upstairs has two bedrooms. One has a queen and a daybed that opens to make two twins. The other bedroom has a queen and a double futon. The upstairs has a full bath with a tub/shower that is shared between the two bedrooms.

The living room is open to the kitchen and dining area and has a sectional couch and comfortable chairs.

The kitchen is brand new, modern and has all the basics you should need to cook and enjoy meals while staying here.

The dining area has a long table (center leaf can be removed if you want it smaller) and seats 8 comfortably but is capable of seating 10. We provide folding chairs to add to the seating capacity.

The covered porch is quite literally another room! It runs the length of the house and is 10 feet deep. There are rockers, adirondacks and a table that seats 6 comfortably and 8 if you squeeze.

Outside we have a patio area with a beautiful copper fire bowl and boulders for sitting around the fire. A short distance from the house is a picnic area that provides spectacular long range views. You will not want to miss this! We also have a loop trail that is about 1/3 mile long, plus some gravel roads for walking.

About Steve and Louise

We bought this farm in 2010 and just 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 2010

Why Steve and Louise chose Asheville

I moved to the area 20 years ago to attend college at Warren Wilson College. I had to leave 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 home with fantastic views! Definately would stay here again.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for our gurls’ trip! House was imaculate & had everything we needed. The views were wonderful. Arrived to find a dozen fresh eggs waiting in the in the refrigerator. Even our accompanying 2 year old was taken care of with portacrib, high chair, bed rails & baby gates! The layout is very open so we were able to enjoy each other’s company all the time as well as places for the 18 & 20 year olds to get away for their private times. Location was perfect! Close to everything yet secluded. Definately hope to stay there again.

Gorgeous View!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been more pleased w/ this property. Our favorite feature was the gorgeous view from the front porch! We felt like we were out in the country, yet we were just minutes from downtown Asheville. (My husband and I took Uber home from downtown one night and it was $12.50).

The home was spotless and plenty big for five adults. We really enjoyed the cozy fireplace. We would definitely stay here again!

Great country home

  • 5 of 5

Our family (6 adults and our 7 month old granddaughter) spent the week together at this home. The home was super clean and well stocked upon our arrival. The kitchen was well equipped. We did a lot of cooking. The beds were very comfortable. The views from the back porch were fantastic of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The neighborhood bear visited the yard 3 times during the week. We would recommend the home and would return for another visit. Thanks, Steve and Louise for a great stay.

Wonderful week

  • 5 of 5

This home is in impeccable condition, very clean with a nice open floor plan. The deck is very large and has amazing views of the mountains. The kitchen is well stocked with nice appliances. Close proximity to grocery store and downtown. We thoroughly enjoyed our week at this lovely gem of a home nestled in the mountains.

Everything We Wanted for Our First NC Visit !!!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation home deserves all of its 5-star reviews. It was extremely clean, beautifully decorated, very spacious, with a wonderful back porch and gorgeous views. Tons of clean towels, dishes, utensils, and starter supplies. The location was terrific - hidden in nature but close to conveniences (grocery store, drug store etc.) when needed and just a short drive to Asheville. For us, it was a perfect blend of being out in the "country" but close to cultural activities in Asheville and being "connected" (when needed) through cable and wifi. We were so impressed with Steve and Louise's communications: they sent check-in instructions at just the right time before our arrival and encouraged us to contact them with any questions or concerns during our stay. When we did ask a question through smart phone text messaging, response was almost immediate. Our trip highlights were Biltmore, Omni Grove Park Inn, Chimney Rock State Park hike and Blue Ridge Parkway Drive. We wish we could have stayed longer ! We hope to visit again :)

Very comfortable, well-stocked house, great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice home. Spacious, well-lit, tastefully decorated. Beds were very comfortable. Stocked with everything needed. The view from the back porch is beautiful. The location is very good--easy to get to downtown, Blue Ridge Parkway, food shopping. All in all a very nice rental and an easy experience.

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.
