A perfect getaway from the hectic pace of life, an opportunity to experience nature on stage and a great place to entertain family and friends or just enjoy a romantic interlude for two.

Best vacation home ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

17 of my friends rented for 3 nights this past weekend for my 40th birthday. This house is so warm and comfy and truly has everything you need. Wonderful bedding, pillows, blankets, soap, towels and everything you could ever need in a kitchen. Cleanest home I have ever ever rented!! The only recommendation I have is that another full size fridge was so very needed for three days with of food for such a large group. We also had a mini bus from The Trolley company come pick us up and take us out. Thank you Laban and Zoe for all your help and for a great trip!

Totally worth it...!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing House, as well as amazing Management! The house is huge and breathtaking. Every details was taken care of so that you as a guest did not have to worry about anything. We had a family reunion of 15 people with kids and all, and even with 15 souls in there, it never felt crammed. The house has everything you can possibly need and more, and the location is breathtaking. We were hoping for snow during this season (being december) but did not get any, however if you go there and there is snow, I highly recommend all-wheel drive to get up there since the access road is steep and could get slippery... by the way, its the last house on the road at the top of the mountain! In summary, this place is well taken care of, clean and very spacious, beds were very comfy, and for a large group it is just perfect. Ohh and thank you mgmt for getting us discounted tickets literally the day before we needed them. They go out of their way to help and it shows.

Wedding weekend in Asheville

  • 5 of 5

Unbelievably beautiful home on mountaintop! Family gathered to celebrate our daughter's wedding. Zoe thought of everything, fully stocked, does not feel like a rental but rather more like home! We even walked in to find a Christmas tree! Beautiful decor, comfortable beds, nice towels and a fully stocked kitchen. We wish we could have stayed longer to esp enjoy the fantastic view!!! Would highly recommend!

Absolutely Amazing

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Berger's home for our wedding weekend in October. Their home was the perfect size for accomodating our bridal party and a few other guests (16 total). The steep drive up to the home just builds anticipation, it's worth it for sure. When you arrive, the views are absolutely stunning. I grew up in Asheville and this home by far has the best views I've seen. Everything was meticulously maintained, it felt comfortable and was perfect for entertaining our group. Words cannot describe how impressed we were. Icing on the cake was our visit from Cosby, the neighborhood dog. I had read previous reviews where other guests had mentioned him, so happy we got the opportunity to love on him too! He guided us up the road and hung out for a few days. We are so thankful for the memories we have while staying at the home for our wedding weekend and cannot wait to come back!!
