Beautiful Views!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house with a large group of friends for the weekend while whitewater rafting in the area. The home was perfect for our needs. The deck is huge, with plenty of seating and tables to accommodate a large group. The views from the back of the house are beautiful! The pictures do no do it justice! The kitchen was well stocked and had everything we needed to cook for a large group. The pool table in the garage was a bonus as well. The house was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. I would definitely recommend this house.

Breathe taking views!

  • 4 of 5

The house was spotless! Katie had thought about everything. No need of taking anything for just in case. This house has lots of towels, shewts, pillows,, pots , pans, etc. We were a party of 7 and fit very comfortably. We ran into two issues..1. The distance tu places such as Gatlinburg was a long drive about 1.5 hr.... the drive to the house is intimidating at night. So we cancelled some planned trips to avoid risk. And the other wad not having internet connection with enough speed to check my emails, log intro school our work sites. Had to drive to McDonald's to complete some task. That was very disappointing.

The morning views were just amazing!

Paradise Peaks is really a paradise

  • 5 of 5

The place's name actually matches its character - it is a little paradise! The views are truly breathtaking and wildlife is close (deer, wild turkey, rabbits, and owl in distant). We were impressed how clean, modern, and well-organized the place is. We had fantastic time and hope to return in the future.

Fantastic View, Great Furnishings, Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

This place is awesome for a couple days away. The views are outstanding, the accomodations/furnishing exceed expectation, and even the drive to Asheville is not that bad. Be prepared for the 1-way gravel road and steep gravel driveway, but once you're there you won't want to leave.

The peaceful retreat of your dreams

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful, restful, calming, home. If you are looking to get in touch with nature, and find peace and serenity, this is the place for you. This home has been very recently renovated and is beyond comfortable with every need being met. It's also a very short ride to downtown Asheville if you are looking for some town time. Katie is the perfect hostess, and her home will feel like it is yours too. Do not miss this gem; you will not be disappointed. We've already booked again for next year. Thank you, Katie and team, for making our stay a fabulous one!

The house is absolutely beautiful with such a spectacular view ! I love sitting out on the deck that over looks the incredible mountains. If I could stay forever I would.

Besides the spectacular view the house is so inviting and warm and beautifully furnished ! It is so clean and charming ! I would highly recommend staying here if you plan on visiting the Asheville area !
