Hendersonville house description

*** WE OFFER A ONE MONTH RENTAL AT $1850 PER MONTH (4 wks). HOWEVER, THE VRBO INSTANT QUOTE SYSTEM DOES NOT CALCULATE CORRECTLY. IT OVERCALCULATES.

Nestled against a gentle ridge, Crab Creek House is situated in a beautiful, sylvan habitat and mid-way between Hendersonville and Brevard, NC. This welcoming, one-level, cedar-sided home overlooks 1100 feet of Crab Creek, a native NC trout stream. It offers privacy and charm for your North Carolina mountain getaway for up to 4 overnight guests, including children.

You'll find a modern, well-equipped kitchen featuring a 'country' flair. It is equipped with everything you'll need during your stay. The dining area has a large bay window where you can watch for wildlife while eating your meals. The living room is inviting and tastefully decorated. The leather sofa is great for naps and comfortable chairs along with a few antiques add to its eclectic style. The natural stacked stone fireplace reaches up over 14' and in the Fall and Winter months, the gas logs add to the home's ambiance and create additional warmth and coziness. Two master bedroom suites, each with a private bath plus a third bedroom and adjacent bath, provide wonderfully comfortable sleeping options for guests. All 3 beds are queen sized. The home's split-plan layout provides complete comfort and guest privacy.

Crab Creek House is situated on 5 acres of woodlands and overlooks an additional 2 acre pasture-like area. Crab Creek runs around or through the entire property, joining Mill Creek at the driveway bridge. If you're lucky, in season, you'll spot a brookie or rainbow trout. You might even surprise a blue heron. Follow the walking trail that follows the creek to 'Marley Park', the creek-side gathering spot which offers a fire pit, benches and picnic table. Marley Park is a great spot to build a fire and enjoy the cool evenings of the mountains with your favorite beverage. Or, kick back and hang out at the house, dig out that book you packed and planned to read while on vacation, curl up on the couch or pick a chair on the front porch, and start turning the pages. There is plenty to do and see....or keep that promise you made to yourself, and simply do nothing.....that's the great thing about vacationing at Crab Creek House.

This is the very special spot you've been looking for! Make Crab Creek House your 'base-camp' while you explore all the area has to offer. The location is perfect and provides convenience to local and regional attractions and community events. This is the perfect spot for your vacation or seasonal getaway. This house for all seasons will not disappoint you.

                  Car: Necessary

                  CRAB CREEK HOUSE, located almost exactly half way between Hendersonville and Brevard, NC, is a non-smoking property. Located on a primary state road, access is excellent but just far enough from town to offer a private, country setting. CRAB CREEK HOUSE is not located in a subdivision and sits privately on a knoll in the woods about a tenth of a mile from the road. The location of CRAB CREEK HOUSE provides perfect and convenient access to the region, as well as its many community activities and events.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  About the owner: Larry and Donna Knott moved to the mountains of Western North Carolina from Hernando, MS (just south of Memphis, TN). When Larry sold his business, Donna, a native to NC, said 'let's go to NC!' Larry, a Memphian and retired stained-glass artisan, previously owned and operated a commercial stained glass studio in the Mid-South region (MS/TN/AR) . After relocating to Hendersonville, Larry opened and operated a second studio. He enjoyed being a 'gentleman glass artisan' until October of 2012, when he finally decided he was 'done'. He has since become interested in wood projects and has the opportunity to investigate whatever peaks his interest. He and Donna love for folks to drop in and visit. Donna loves gardening and decorating. You'll find her involved in hands-on projects of all types. Crab Creek House reflects her personal decorating touch and flair. They both love to entertain and enjoy spending time with friends. They are truly enjoying the opportunity of finding new friends in the guests of Crab Creek House. Larry is also an old 'street-rodder', at one time owning a nationally ranked '34 Ford 3-window coupe.

                  Why the Owner Chose Hendersonville:
                  We purchased Crab Creek House as our personal home, after more than 5 years of searching Western North Carolina for our little piece of heaven. We looked at, and researched numerous areas in the region, but the Henderson and Transylvania County areas stood out for they provided 'four seasons' and weather which nears perfection. Even on warmer summer days, the nights cool off and frequently a sweatshirt or jacket is needed for comfort. Another plus is easy and convenient access to Asheville and The Blue Ridge Parkway. The moment we turned into the driveway of this home, we knew 'this was it!' We had to have it. It is an awesome spot and everyone who visits shares our sentiment and departs with an full understanding how it stole our hearts. Crab Creek House was our personal home for several years until we decided to share it with others, via VRBO. The one-level home is a cedar-sided and situated on 7 wooded acres, overlooking Crab Creek. The property is covered with mountain laurel and rhododendron. There are rock formations, too. It is 'gently' removed and quite private, yet convenient to everything. Its location makes it a perfect 'base camp' for exploring the region and sightseeing. We believe this home was waiting to choose us....not the other way around! It will capture your your heart as well, just like it did ours! We'd love to share it with YOU! An absolutely beautiful spot, convenient to everything, and a one level living area which can be unusual in the mountains. Because we are old-fashioned and Crab Creek House being our personal home and not a typical rental cabin, we choose to not participate with VRBO's direct-booking system. We want to 'meet' you and have the opportunity to have a 'conversation' either by email or phone as part of confirming your reservation. So give us a call and/or shoot us an email via the VRBO website. We will be delighted to answer your questions and tell you about Crab Creek House!
