Property description

This 1700 sq. ft. house was our home for ten years until recently, when we built a larger home about three miles away. So we are close enough to be available when you need us, yet far enough away to give you the privacy you need. The house sits on almost an acre, so you're not shoulder to shoulder with neighbors. The back yard is mostly secluded, especially on the back porch, where the hot tub is located.

Willow Haven is just 15 minutes from the Biltmore Estate, 7 minutes from the Asheville Airport and the WNC Ag Center, 5 minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway, 25 minutes to Black Mountain, and 20 minutes to Hendersonville.

Comments from some of our guests:

'We were quite surprised at the luxuriousness of your home. We couldn’t have had a better experience at a B&B or hotel.' Dana & Jay

'Ed, Thank you for a beautiful home. We had a GREAT week. God bless you all.' Bob & Sheri

'We especially enjoyed the mountain view from the living room window. The hot tub was fantastic.' Nate and Allie

'This is a lovely gathering place for two families. While here, we visited the Blue Ridge Pkwy, the Arboretum, and the Biltmore Estate. Tonight we are headed to Mt. Pisgah to see the snow. Of course the change of seasons was spectacular!' Diane

'Thank you for such a wonderful place to stay. The view is wonderful. It was such a blessing to enjoy our trip. Thank you again and may God bless you. Prov 3:5.' The Wright family

'Loved every minute of staying at this lovely home. Beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We'll be back.' The Baskettes and the Markels

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: After working as missionaries in Zaire, Kenya, and France for 9 years, my wife (Sheryl) and I (Ed) returned to the States and purchased Willow Haven in 1996. We lived there for 12 years. After adopting 3 children, the house began to feel a bit crowded, so in 2007 we built a new house about 3 miles away and began renting Willow Haven as a vacation rental. I also own a small family electronics business in which we design and assemble printed circuit boards, so if you need any pc boards...

Why the Owner Chose Asheville:
Willow Haven is 13 miles from the entrance to the Biltmore Estate, 4 miles from the Asheville airport, 4 miles from the Western Carolina Agricultural Center, and about 12 miles from downtown Asheville. It is on a smooth, comfortable, paved road, easy to drive, not steep, does not require a 4 wheel drive except in unusually bad weather, and is just over a mile from I-26, exit 37, where you can find groceries, plenty of nice restaurants, and movie cinemas. Even though there are other houses around, it is pretty much secluded, especially on the back porch where the hot tub is located, so you don't have to worry about neighbors being able to see you. Very homey and comfortable.
