Overview

About the property

2 1/2 bedroom, 2 bath, Mountain Views, Hot Tub

If you are looking to spend time in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains look no further!

This peaceful getaway is nestled between mature pines and wooded lots at the end of the paved driveway. From the front covered porch you can relax in the wooden rockers and watch the morning sunrise while you enjoy your coffee or listen to rain on the tin roof. At night there is nothing more relaxing than watching the moon dance with the stars from the 5-person hot tub on the back deck.

This property has all the amenities of home. Including, a fully stocked kitchen, which includes new stainless steel GE appliances (Glass top range, refrigerator, microwave oven, and dishwasher). The kitchen is stocked with almost every amenity one could wish for including a Keurig coffeemaker, a Kitchen-Aid mixer, high-end stainless steel pots and pans, and table settings for up to six people. We make sure this kitchen is equipped as if it were our own.

A starter supply of coffee and tea are provided. Starter supply of tissue & toilet paper, paper towels, bath soap, dish soap, blow dryer and many other amenities are available so you don’t feel pressure to immediately stock up on supplies. There's also an electric fireplace so you do not have to bother with wood or the smell of smoke yet still enjoy the ambience of a warm flame.

This home sleeps five adults comfortably with two bedrooms (both with new queen size mattriesis) and a multi-purpose room with a futon bunk-bed.

There is also a Bowflex complete fitness system located in the home. The Bowflex is the top-of-the-line machine and comes fully equipped. There is also a set of adjustable Bowflex dumbbells, workout manuals, CD, and I-Pod stereo system for use by the tenants.

Other amenities include Maytag Neptune washer and dryer, back deck patio set, rustic picnic table, two car garage, carport, and a small fenced in area with a doghouse for your furry companion. There is also a large pet crate available if needed.

No matter if you prefer spending your evenings sitting on the porch, listening to the wildlife and watching the sunset or lounging on the leather sofa watching cable TV (or DVD) and surfing the web over the Wi-Fi this home will ensure peace and quiet. This is a Great location for every season of the year and every hour of the day!

This beautiful cedar siding home is located just 25 minutes from downtown Asheville North Carolina. Within a 15-20 minute drive you can access the Wolf Ridge ski slopes, golfing (Mount Mitchell or Mountain Air), zip lines, the Blue-Ridge Parkway, gem mining, white-water rafting, horseback riding, and some of the most amazing hiking trails you’ve ever meandered. We hope you will fall in love with this home as much as we have over the years.

About Chris Cain

My partner and I grew up in the mountains of Western North Carolina and Eastern Tennessee and fell in love with the area. I am a professor and my partner is an engineer. We have two daughters and feel so blessed to own property in what we both know to be the most beautiful open place we have ever visited. We love Asheville and hope you find as much joy in this house as we have over the years.

Chris Cain purchased this house in 2005

Guestbook comments from the owner

My colleagues and I have tried to work at hotel conference centers before, and had some success, but this location brought a whole other level to our synergy and productivity. The house is nestled in the trees and the quiet atmosphere is a perfect place to relax and re-energize. The layout of the house allowed for several different work spaces when we needed to divide tasks, but also allowed for us to meet in a comfortable common area. We all had our computers connected to Wi-Fi and were able to get so much accomplished! The owner is incredibly easy to work with and responded to our questions quickly. When we looked at the cost of a hotel conference center meeting room plus the cost of our hotel stays, this option was significantly more economical. We were able save money with our food budgets as well. The kitchen is well-equipped for food preparation. I also liked that it's within about a 10 minute drive into Burnsville where there are some lovely little shops and restaurants. The grocery store has a Starbucks! We will definitely be choosing this location again for our future work retreats. I'm even planning on using it as a family vacation spot.

A gem, a little off the beaten path

Beautiful house set in the woods!

  • 4 of 5

The house is very cute, well decorated with all amenities you can ask for. Cell phone reception is spotty but they have good wifi so you can still communicate if need be. Hot tube was very nice and clean. Lots to do near by with the blue ridge parkway and Asheville not far away. Very nice community with everyone waving and saying hi when we went for walks in the mornings. Highly recommend.

Very Clean and Welcoming

  • 5 of 5

We spent five days and enjoyed every moment of it. The place was clean and well stocked (kitchen and bathroom) for our stay. The kids enjoyed the outdoors and the house. The neighborhood was quiet and friendly. Will definitely stay there again.
