About Ted Riskin

Fell in love with Asheville, Fairview, and this house, and had to buy it. Renovated it to add the Fairview Vacation Pad. My wife and I live downstairs on the main level. On the lower level is the supplemental apartment along with my workspace, which I use for my therapy practice and to offer workshops in Holotropic (and other) Breathwork and Core Energetics. I specialize in couples therapy, so feel free to inquire about possibilities for transforming your relationship while on your vacation.

Ted Riskin purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Ted Riskin chose Asheville Area

Asheville is the perfect town - big enough to entertain and feed you well, but small enough to be easily navigable. Fairview is the perfect access point for Asheville - an easy 20 minute drive from almost anywhere in town, but more affordable, cleaner, and more beautiful. The house was built with love and quality by a contractor who moved in with his family after completing it.

What makes this apartment unique

You have a private apartment without being stuck on your own in some cabin in the boonies. You can rent just the main 2 BR apartment, or you can add the downstairs supplemental bedroom as well (additional cost is about half of the main apartment). Staying downstairs involves climbing several flights of deck stairs to join the guests in the main apartment. but you have complete privacy from the rest of your group, too!

Great weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Ted was a fantastic host and his property was just what we were looking for. We came to the area for a guys weekend, Ted met us at the car in the pouring rain to show us in and give us a quick tour. Beds, bathroom, kitchen, etc...everything was in great shape and made for a relaxing weekend. We were able to easily catch Uber's into Asheville as well. I would definitely recommend this property for someone looking for something right outside of Asheville.

This is a Spectacular place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Ted's place is well designed with all of the latest technical updates. Wait until you see the colorful light display in the kitchen - it really adds to the atmosphere of the place! The kitchen is well stocked and everything in the whole apartment feels new. Ted is very helpful and accommodating. Even though the apartment is above his house, it feels completely private. The hot tub, and the view are to die for. The TV set up is super advanced and because of that was a pain for us to manage at times. My advice - when he gives you instructions on how to use the TV/DVD/Music system, pay attention, then try it yourself, and ask him to show you again. I fought with smart remote and the TV the entire time! But when I finally did get it to work my whole family really enjoyed watching netflix pics on such a huge amazing screen. The drive to asheville is super easy. If you are staying out of town, Ted's place is the real deal.

Beautiful rental, scenic location

  • 4 of 5

The place and setting are beautiful. Unfortunately, the hot tub did not get past 85 degrees & I believe this problem is being addressed. It was immaculate, and the kitchen had all you needed to make a nice meal. The washer and dryer are a plus! I would change out the couch to something more comfortable, although it looks nice, its not very comfortable. We enjoyed our stay there and would recommend it! Ted and Jeannine were very pleasant and easy to deal with.

Owner's Response: We are really sorry about the hot tub malfunction. It has since been fixed. Unfortunately, I had to be out of town that weekend, or I might have been able to resolve the problem sooner. As for the sofa, we have received a few comments that it is not very comfortable, and we are actively looking for a replacement that will fit into that space.

Absolutely Amazing. Better than expected. Host Outstanding.

  • 5 of 5

I came into town for 3 nights, for continuing education classes.. Took me about 15 minutes or so to get to downtown Asheville. Very easy drive. The owner was very available and accommodating. He was thorough with instructions on all his fun gadgets in the property. The lights were bonus. lol a fun little addition that you can choose to enjoy or not. The hot tub was amazing after a long day of studying and night at the brewery. Something that I especially loved that I didn't see mention of was the tiny twinkling lights in the trees at night. I still don't know if those were hung or some sort of a light illusion.. All I know is that they made me feel like a pixie in a tree house :) The beds were comfortable, the entire place was immaculately clean and the location was far enough off the beaten path to relax in the quiet.. but close enough to enjoy all that Asheville and surrounding areas offers. I cant wait for my next excuse to book here.
