This property has been in our family for over 130 years. On October 30, 1999, we (Katherine, Gary and Roberta - your hosts) began remodeling our childhood home. A lot of time and love has gone into making our house a “home away from home” for visitors. We hope you enjoy your time with us as much as we have enjoyed the life experiences we have shared here. We also hope that you will be able to know the same peace and tranquility that we feel when you come to “Rocky Ridge.”
The majority of our past guests have commented on the close proximity we are to everything in the Asheville area as well as the cleanliness we strive to maintain for our guests.
Rocky Ridge Retreat is perfect for newlyweds, retirees, or the small family on a budget. Spend your vacation enjoying all that Asheville and the surrounding areas have to offer. No matter whether you are coming for the cool summer breeze, the brilliant colors in the fall, to enjoy one of the arts and music festival, skiing, or just to get away for a relaxing weekend, you will find Rocky Ridge Retreat close (or within a short driving distance) to wherever you want to be.
Mrs. Bear and I recently spent a few days among the mountains in Asheville, and we agreed this cabin surrounded by trees was the perfect location. On day one, we drove up to a cute white picket fence lining the driveway, and we were greeted by cute flower gardens leading up to the porch. We were very excited that we would have our own private cabin. As we entered, we were blown away by how spacious a two-bedroom cabin could really be. There’s plenty of room for the whole family to mingle, and the master bedroom just seems to go on and on as you enter the sitting area and turn the corner.
Once we got settled in, we decided to check out the property. There’s a neat old barn that’s fun to explore, and lots of open space to stretch out my legs. The wrap-around porch has plenty of seating and a nice, big grill if you want to spend some time there. Unfortunately, we had a bit of rain, so we spent a lot of time inside. Thankfully, the gravel walkway made sure the mud stayed out of the house and out of the car.
Everything about the place was convenient and comfortable: on-site laundry, a big, spacious Jacuzzi tub, plenty of towels for the whole family, and easy access to most of Asheville’s attractions. A lot of Asheville’s highways can be winding and confusing, but getting to this vacation rental couldn’t have been easier. One exit and one turn got us to the front door without much effort.
We had such a great experience, and we can’t wait to get back to this comfy cabin in the woods!
