About Rachel Friel

I am a native of Western North Carolina. I returned to this area 12 years ago to raise our children after living in California for many years.

Rachel Friel purchased this house in 2017

Why Rachel Friel chose Asheville

We looked for a long time before finding a property that was what we would want in a vacation rental in the Asheville area. This house has all the charm and privacy of a remote location while only 8 miles from downtown. There is plenty of room to spread out and lots of outdoor space to enjoy.

What makes this house unique

We love the location as well as the privacy. You feel like you are in a treehouse when you look out the wall of windows in the great room!

Awesome house

  • 5 of 5

Loved our weeekend in Asheville. This house was perfect for us. Only 15 minute drive to downtown and other places we wanted to experience in Asheville. Such a nice house and so peaceful. Will definitely stay here next time we go back to Asheville.

Great house for a large group

The house was beautiful! We had 9 people, and there was enough room for everyone. Rachel was very responsive and accommodating, and we definitely enjoyed our weekend in Asheville.

Great Home

  • 5 of 5

We ended up getting around a foot of snow during our trip so we decided to shovel the snow off the driveway. When we were done, the owners stopped by and told us they had just called someone to come clear the driveway. They ended up canceling the service and refunded us $100 towards or rental. Great home, with great owners
