                                My girlfriends and I have stayed in several rental properties over the years and found this property to breath taking. The journey to the house is like going around a mountain - loads of fun. At the end of the road is this well loved home. that is warm and inviting; the views are amazing. Best of all, it is within minutes of Asheville and the surrounds which makes it the perfect retreat after a day of touring. There are grocery stores nearby as well as a wonderful Chinese Carry out and Italian restaurant. The owner was very easy to deal with, providing prompt responses to any questions. Security deposit was returned promptly. We would highly recommend this property.

                                My wife and I stayed a week with our two daughters. The house is very nice and comfortable, with spectacular views from the back porch. The area is very peaceful and relaxing, but just a short drive to Asheville. We did day trips for hiking and sightseeing, and always looked forward to returning to Chestnut Forest. The kitchen is very well done and stocked with useful kitchen utensils. David was extremely helpful and a pleasure to deal with.

                                My wife and I have rented this wonderful retreat twice...each time for two weeks. I guess it was just dumb luck finding this place, because I cannot imagine anything much better. The home is spacious, well designed for up to 6 people, decorated with many unique items you might find in your own home. The kitchen is well equipped and there is a very nice gas grill on the side of the home. The most appealing part of the house has to be the large deck and hot tub with a view that is quite hard to describe. Sitting in the Adirondack chairs or at the outdoor table one can see for miles over green blue hills of thick forest, full birds and other wildlife. Often I would get up around 7 and take a cup of coffee and a book outside. The temperature was typically 60-65 degrees and the mountain birds would be singing delightfully. I could pass an hour or two simply enjoying the view or reading my book and sipping coffee...incredibly relaxing. My wife and I have enjoyed this home and Asheville so much that we are considering purchasing a second home in the area where we could live in the summers, but it would have to have a setting and view similar to this home.

                                Actually, the picture from the deck doesn’t really do it justice. Before we even unlocked the door, we walked around to see the mountain vista and it was truly beautiful. Then we tried out the Adirondack chairs and almost didn’t get up. During our stay, we enjoyed everything from wine and appetizers to coffee and bowls of cereal from our personal front row view of the mountains. We watched the fog rolling up the sides of the hills, the hawks playing in the draft of rising warm air, and listened to the pileated woodpeckers calling to one another and the nest of baby chickadees chirping away in their cozy house. Each night the hardest decision we faced was whether to eat at one of the many restaurants in town or pick up something from Ingles supermarket on the way back to the house and enjoy the privacy and the view. Be sure to stay enough nights to do both and maybe even bring a pre-made dinner from home to make it easy. As far as eating in town, make reservations before you leave home if you want to eat at one of the more popular restaurants. A few places won’t take reservations but do take call ahead seating which will put you at the top of the list when you arrive. A tip for parking downtown: if you use the parking garages, they give you the first hour free and cost 25 cents/hour less than the street meters so don’t sweat it if you can’t parallel park. We originally made reservations at the Grove Park Inn but changed our minds and rented this beautiful home instead. It was definitely the right decision for us since we really enjoyed having all the amenities and privacy of home plus the beautiful view and just a 15-20 minute drive to downtown Asheville. Thanks for a great vacation, David, and for your help with directions and restaurant suggestions. We will definitely come back!

                                We rented this home for a family reunion. We found the décor of the house very warm and comfortable. The beds were really nice, the kitchen well equipped. The location is serene and peaceful - the only noise was the birds chirping and the hot tub running! The views are phenomenal, I think the on line photos are nice but the view is actually more beautiful than the photos. The grille on the deck is also well equipped and enjoyed using it. The hot tub was great to soak in and enjoy the view. The main floor bathroom is simply gorgeous. Our families had a fantastic time and we are sure that this home played a great role in our experience. The Owner, David was great to rent from and we surely would rent again from him. The location is great, only a short drive, scenic drive to downtown Asheville. Good restaurants are nearby – we enjoyed “Piazza Pizza” (great pizza that could hold its own in Chicago), “Nachos and Beer” was good Mexican food. For breakfast we especially enjoyed “Tupelo Honey”. We found a great coffee/chocolate shop in downtown Asheville (French Broad Chocolate Lounge) and the Oaxaca hot chocolate was incredible. We also took the micro brewery beer tour (Asheville Brewery tour – say hi to Critter our tour guide for us) – visited Piscah, Highland, Wicked Weed, and Green Man, and a moonshine distillery (Troy & Sons). All of the stops on the tour were highly enjoyable. Of course we also visited Biltmore which is quite a house too.

The views were just as beautiful (if not better) than the photos. The accomodations were spacious, clean, and well maintained. Great attention was paid to the details - from scented soaps to high quality cookware - everything you could want was readily available. The location is ideally situated in the mountains but within 20 minutes of Asheville. Lots to do or not do - the choice is yours. If you are looking for a luxurious home to get away from it all this place is ideal.

                                What a wonderful Thanksgiving week! We arrived the weekend before Thanksgiving to this wonderful, and beautifully maintained, mountain retreat. A binder of information specific to the house awaited us. Area attractions and businesses were also listed for our convenience. We started a fire , propped our feet up and started to unwind. The home and surrounding yard are meticulously maintained. The owner was readily available should we have needed help or information of some sort but, truthfully,all of our needs had been anticipated and we did not find anything lacking. The home is located centrally to all that we wanted to do... from hiking trails along the Blue Ridge Parkway, to visiting Asheville. The deck with hot tub provided glorious morning and evening vistas to sit back and enjoy. The kitchen is a cook's dream! Everything you could possible need was provided, and all was of good quality. Information books, and pamphlets,specific to the area are available in the home, which also has wifi for those who wish it. I have rented numerous mountain retreats over the years and I can say, without doubt, this home exceeded my expectations in every way. And I have pretty high standards! My husband and I agree this was the best mountain vacation, by far, due in great part to this property. Our 20 something daughters agree..... the best vacation yet!

                                I have just returned from a great week at this welcoming home..this was difficult year for me..I had suffered a huge personal loss.. arriving here I immediately felt like I came home. Every room of the home has been meticulously maintained and is decorated beautifully. EVERYTHING has been thought out so you can arrive and never need to worry about a thing. All the info you need is in 1 binder..read and relax for the balance of your time away.. Beds are comfy,Cozy! You have amazing veiws from many windows in the ho use and even better veiws from the deck.. I hope to visit again.,this was my first trip to the mountains., I NEED to come back and experience every season here.. While staying at the house we did dome sightseeing around the area. I had some really amazing meals in downtown Nashville.e but the highlight of my visit was simply relaxing in the house., enjoying the veiws and the peaceful atmosphere of this home!!

                                I fine it difficult to say something the previous reviews haven't said already. We have stayed in western North Carolina every year for the past 10 years. This was our 3rd time at David's house and without a doubt is the best in every category. The house is just 10 minutes from grocery stores, gas stations and restaurants in Fairview. And you can be in downtown Asheville in 20 minutes or less. The house is ideal: it makes you feel like you are home, except for the view of course! We won't consider another rental when we return to the Smokey Mountains next time.
