update for a four day stay

  • 3 of 5

clean and well maintained property. kitchen is well supplied with utensils for all cooking. beds were comfortable and well stocked bathrooms had plenty of towels and toilet paper. but short on Kleenex.

we had a major beginning problem in that there was no water supply in the house. I called the contact information number and she called back in a short time period. we had to wait for a few hours until the service man was able to show up to fix the issue, but I had to assist in the home by giving him feedback on the water flow as well as push and pull the levers to get the water flowing in a proper manner. I had to traipse the stairs numerous times in this process, and if it had not been me present in the home, the repairman would have had to employ a second person to assist in the water recovery. It took five hours to have enough water available to flush the toilets. we had no water problems after the fix.

the second major issue - the wifi was insufficient in the house. and it did not work for the last two days at all. if advertised- it should have worked.

Suggestion - mirrors should be placed in all bedrooms, esp because on the second floor there are 3 bedrooms that share one bathroom.

Perfect place to stay. Exactly how it was describe

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect. The rooms were spacious and everyone was comfortable- 16 people. The drive to downtown Asheville is only 25 minutes and cost $27-$35 for an Uber. Uber and Lyft drivers had no problem getting to the house even though it is secluded.

We'll definitely be back!

Beautiful and Well Equipped!

  • 5 of 5

This home was the perfect accommodation for our group of 12 adults and 4 babies and a child. We took full advantage of the 3 fireplaces, hot tub and kitchen. We especially loved the giant kitchen table with a huge lazy Susan. It made meals so easy and fun! It was convenient to downtown Asheville and the views were stunning. Highly recommended!

Amazing!! Perfect for our couples getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The house is exactly like it is described but the pictures of the views don't do them justice. We had six couples staying in the house and it accommodated us perfectly. The kitchen was fully stocked and we grilled out one night. The hot tub made the November chilly nights enjoyable and it was nice to have two areas where you could watch tv. We were all SEC football fans so the owners even added ESPN for us so we could watch specific games. It was an easy drive into Asheville but honestly half of us stayed at the house all day Saturday to enjoy it. We would all return in a heartbeat to this property. The management company and owners were fantastic!

Zoe and Bruce- Thank you for sharing your home with us! We had the best time!

view is amazing and the house is gorgeous

  • 4 of 5

Everything was super clean. Other than a small plumbing issue that didn't even register on our radar, everything was amazing. It's a place where you can feel like home. It was an amazing venue for our wedding too.
