About Renee LS Cruz

Renee works in the healthcare field and I am the Performing Arts Director of LEAF Community Arts (LEAF Festival). We have two beautiful young daughters and a pair of fine mountain dog. We have dedicated our lives to the service of others and are grateful to be able to now welcome guests to experience the beauty of all this area holds.

Renee LS Cruz purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Renee LS Cruz chose Mars Hill

Our beautiful cabin is located just 20 min from Asheville - 2 min off of interstate 19. We chose this home to be able to enjoy the lush beautiful mountain property, explore outdoor adventure in dozens of regional recreation areas, and have quick easy access into the all Downtown Asheville offers.

What makes this cabin unique

The space is filled with unique cultural relics. Rare instruments, authentic Cherokee crafts, and ceremonial art can be found throughout. All aspects of the cabin from creating to decor are all placed together with intention and care. The land and space are also a lifelong project for us - as we take each day to continue to evolve it for the pleasure of all who visit.

Unique styling for a daylight basement

  • 3 of 5

This home was very clean and generally well appointed. A few items needed were shades for windows and doors, luggage stands and sound deadening. The noise from the family and kids living upstairs was apparent every time someone walked across the floor above us.

Owner's Response: Its important to share, that this guest did not accurately read the posting for this home and had assumed upon arrival the entirety of our 5500 Sq ft. estate was theirs. The disappointment was clear and their was little receptivity to the vast amenities provided after that realization. The Journey's End takes up the entirety of the lower half of our home. Although we have reinforced ceilings, carpeting above, a sound proof reinforced door, and 4 sound machines operating continuously - there is minimal noise to be anticipated. We have acquired a luggage rack and an 18 ft. retractable room divider that completely blocks lighting in the studio room per this recommendation. We are exceedingly responsive to feedback and mindful of ensuring that we meet and exceed our guests expectations. However, it is of great importance to ensure that the description of our rental, its amenities, and our house guidelines are all taken into consideration before deciding if this rental is best for your family. We sincerely appreciate this consideration and look forward to continuing to elevate our guests experience here in the mountains of Western North Carolina.

A beautiful, quiet setting a little outside of Asheville.

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful location is just outside of Asheville. It's quiet, comfortable and has all the amenities we needed for our stay. We also discovered Weaverville, which is close by, and enjoyed the small-town atmosphere there. The apartment is spacious and the pictures don't do it justice, in my opinion. The Murphy bed is very comfortable and small details like night lights and extra blankets made our stay even better. If you are a late-sleeper, you might want to sleep on the pull-out sofa as there's no curtains or blinds on the French doors in the bedroom. However, you wake up to a great view there. The kitchen is well-stocked with supplies for meal preparation and the ice maker was nice to have for filling water bottles before hiking. The bathroom has a very nice shower with extra jets and the hot water heater provided plenty of hot water, quickly. We will definitely stay here again! Thank you!

GREAT stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Journey's End for 2 nights and it was absolutely wonderful! It is a VERY clean rental and has all the ammentities you could ask for (we would suggest a full length mirror however). It is a very spacious rental and the bedding is very comfortable.
