              While enjoying your vacation above the clouds, at Eban's Mountain Escape, you can spend your time in adventures such as white water rafting, Blue Ridge Parkway and lunch at Pisgah Inn, North Carolina Arboretum, Fine Arts Theater, Looking Glass Falls, Folk Art Center, Craggy Gardens for Hiking, River Arts District or enjoy the Asheville Brewery Tours.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2010

              About the owner: We built this home as our own and hope to make this area our full time residence in the future. We currently live outside of North Carolina, however, most of our family is located in the are and would love to share this very special home with you.

              Why the Owner Chose Asheville:
              This home is located next to the Navitat zip line and is just a short drive to most attractions in the area. You can enjoy the night life of downtown and be back in the mountains in just short drive.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We always enjoyed the mountain view, but there is really something about being at Above the Clouds. Our conversations linger just a bit longer and our dreams are a bit bigger when we spend time there. There is really something special about being above the clouds.
