About Katie Wisniewski

I prefer not to have any of my personal information or photo on my profile

Katie Wisniewski purchased this house in 2006

Why Katie Wisniewski chose Asheville Area

We have vacationed in the Asheville area over the years and we love everything the area has to offer, to include white water rafting, hiking, skiing, mountain biking, great casual dining and shopping.

What makes this house unique

Our property is a great place to hike the acres and surrounding nature preserve, watch the beautiful sunsets from the back porch and relax away from it all, yet still close enough to town.

Beautiful view of the mountains (smokey mountains) early in the morning from the deck.

  • 4 of 5

The house was clean, beautiful view of the mountains off the back deck, quiet and not hard to find or drive to. It is close to a grocery and other amenities. Very nice for the whole family you have your privacy and be together as you choose. We seen a deer, many different birds and heard coyotes one night during our short stay.

We used the house for our son's wedding (at a local Vineyard) and hosted a group of people. We had many activities during our week stay taking us in and out of Asheville, but despite the 25-35 min drive, and the winding roads climbing up to the rental, we felt the remote location was exactly what we wanted and it proved to be just that. The drive into town is lovely and without difficulty. The climbing roads are not difficult, and for those not used to it provide a local experience to be enjoyed. The view from the deck is definitely the highlight to this rental and was our "entertainment" rather than tv/dvd's (provided). It was a blessing to sip our coffee in the morning and our wine in the evening while watching the hawks and other birds, or enjoying the sunrises and sunsets and clouds (Smokey Mountains) rolling in and out. It was pure nourishment for one's soul! The fall foliage must be breathtaking and we talked about returning during that season sometime just to enjoy it with that view.

The house itself was clean and well stocked in most ways. The spacious master bathroom was wonderful on the main floor and the upstairs rooms, 2 of which have window air conditioning units, provided adequate comfort for our guests. There is room in the upstairs hallways if hosting a larger family or groups for air mattresses, which were provided, but not used. We loved that the house had both a den and family room, as well as a great washer/dryer in the basement to use. We did not use the pool table in the garage, but it was a nice area to be enjoyed for those interested.

Thank you "Paradise Peaks" for a lovely stay.

Dear Katie-We loved our stay at your Mountain Home. Wish we had more time. The night lightning bugs put on a spectacular show. The house was everything the description listed. Very scenic roads to the home. All appliances worked and the AC was great.

Thank You,

The DeMays

The house was beautiful with incredible views. We wanted a quiet place to celebrate and it was perfect and then driving into town was not difficult or too far. Definitely would recommend this place to anyone and plan on staying there for future visits.

Very nice, especially the views!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this for our daughters wedding and mini family reunion.

Although it rained a majority of our stay, we enjoyed watching the clouds roll over the mountains in the distance.

The seclusion of the property offered peace and quiet of nothing more than birds singing.

Value, great

Location, fantastic

Memories created, priceless!

You owe it to yourself to look at this property.

Excellent Experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I decided to visit this property for an anniversary get-away, and were very happy with how everything turned out. First, the property is situated on the top of a mountain, which offers a tremendous view as well as privacy. There were paths that allowed for relatively short but scenic walks. We ended up seeing a wild turkey as well as a doe.

Secondly, the home itself was spacious and comfortable. There was a large deck with a latched door, so our two dogs could enjoy the fresh air without running off. We also enjoyed the deck; we used the grill and spent time relaxing. The interior was charming, and the master bedroom is large and on the ground floor, which was nice.

Lastly, there were some great amenities/entertainment options. In addition to the gas grill, the owners offer a huge selection of DVDs as well as a pool table in the basement. The only complaint is that the DVD player in the living room was a bit antiquated and didn't work (or at least we couldn't figure it out).

We would definitely return to this property again, and would highly recommend it for others to enjoy as well!
