About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths (Sleeps 13) in beds, plus option of additional.

This beautiful two story round house boasts almost 4000 sq. ft. of living space, perfect for large groups of people. The home is located on 5 1/2 acres nestled in the woods with unique wildlife and foliage and is also close to shopping, hiking, sight seeing, the Blue Ridge Parkway and the famous Biltmore House. The home has an open floor plan with 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, hot tub and large game room.

Upper Level:

Located on top floor is the 1st master suite, wrap around kitchen, dining and family room. The Master Bedroom includes a king bed, couch, recliner, 50 inch TV and huge on-suite bathroom. There is a half bath located near the foyer. The family room has a full couch, love seat, recliner, and 60 inch TV. Dining with this large open room offers ample seating with a large dining table and bar seating near the kitchen accommodating up to 14 people. The beautiful kitchen is fully furnished with everything needed to cook and dine in. Just off the family room is a screened in porch with seating allowing visitors to escape and enjoy the outdoors. Just outside and near the screened in porch is a gas grill with utensils. Step outside the family room or master to a hot tub located on the back deck, offering the perfect opportunity to star gaze. A large fire pit has been added with benches constructed from tempers taken from our wooded area. I usually make an effort to lay a fire that is ready to be lit. Plenty of logs available. In the heat of summer, bugs spray is a necessity.

Lower Level:

Down the spiral staircase to a game room with pool table, foosball table, exercise equipment, and 60 inch TV. Off this game room are two bedrooms, one with a queen size bed, and the other with a queen size, as well as a twin bed. Each bedroom has its own vanity sink. A full bath with tub-shower is between the bedrooms. Also, on this level and separated by the full laundry room, is the second master bedroom, containing a king bed, queen bed, and bunk beds. This bedroom has large windows looking out into the back yard and wooded area. A full bath with the shower is included off this room.


38 Rocky Ridge Rd., as described earlier, seems far removed, but yet is very near an area bustling with business. Just drive up our private driveway, and you will be among country homes, hotels, and other businesses. Located within walking distance, you will find the new Asheville Outlet, a popular new grocery store, multiple restaurants, gas and convenience stores. Its just a five minute drive to Farmers Market, N.C. State Arboretum, with its beautiful walking trails, or the entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway and only a 15 minute drive to the historic City of Asheville, Biltmore House, and newly developing West Asheville. Breweries have brought anew interest to Asheville, and surrounding towns.

About Bonnie Smart

Independent lady, caregiver, always!! After retiring from Nursing Career, have found a new mission. My wish is to create a pleasant, and peaceful get away for my guests. Have a parcel of wooded land that has revolved, over the years, into a beautiful escape from hectic life, but yet just less than 1/2 mile off our private driveway, one finds themselves out in the world within walking distance of all things convenient.

Bonnie Smart purchased this house in 73

Why Bonnie Smart chose Asheville

Unique in that it was bordered by The Biltmore Estate Property. We had a barn with cow pasture on one side of Brevard Rd., and an Elementary School and small country church on the opposite side of Brevard Rd. My children could walk to school, play up and down the street with all the neighborhood children without a worry. Later, a large grocery store, within walking distance was constructed which provided 2 of my children with employment from an early age.

The house is very well set up and was a great place to celebrate a family wedding. Great deck and hot tub. We really enjoyed the house and plan to return for a family reunion.

Owner's Response: Dear John Metz, Dealing with you and your family was delightful. You were so quiet that we hardly knew you were around, and when you checked out, we found the home in very good order. Thank you for staying with us. Please come visit with us again! Sincerely, Bonnie

Pictures can't do this place justice!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time staying at this incredible home. The rooms are HUGE and feel brand new. The house came stocked with everything we needed (towels, kitchenware, games). The backyard is beautiful & spacious. While it was a bit too wet for us to build a bonfire, we enjoyed many games of touch football out there :)

Best of all, the location could not have been more perfect: 15 min uber to downtown, the airport, Sierra Nevada and Biltmore Village.

Bonnie was extremely accommodating & quick to respond. Would 1000% stay again!

Great House in Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Bonnie couldn't have been nicer or more welcoming. Our group of friends enjoyed the open floor plan of the house and its close proximity to downtown Asheville. The fire pit wasn't included in the pictures listed for this property. But, there is one, and it's wonderful.

I highly recommend this property for future trips to Asheville, especially when you are looking for a mountain cabin feel without having to travel far to get to downtown restaurants and bars. Within the first night we had spotted several white squirrels and deer.

Wonderful house, wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

The house was large and roomy enough for 14 girls on our 11th Annual Girls' Weekend!! We ubered into town both evenings and it all went very smoothly! Plenty of towels, comfortable beds and very clean! We want to come back next year. Asheville was so much fun, Biltmore Candlelight Tour was beautiful as it was all decorated for Christmas.

So much more than could've imagined!

  • 5 of 5

Pictures just can't do this "haven" justice! So much space and comfort for our large wedding gathering. A wonderful location for my family from WI*MI and FL to "meet in the middle" .

Bonnie was very accommodating both when we arrived and were heading out. So near to so much, yet felt like so far away from it all! We ALL Loved it and would love to return one day❤️ NC has So much to offer!

Thank you Bonnie
