About the property

House - 3 Bedrooms - 2 Baths - (Sleeps 6)

Do you want to relax & enjoy one of the best long-range views in western North Carolina? Yes, those photos are taken from the house!

Do you want to be in the woods and in a safe, private wooded setting but still be close to town? The Asheville area has a lot to offer, but you might not want to leave the house.

The home is an up-to-date, very well-kept, very well-equipped, comfortable, spacious, two-story home in a private mountain community just 13 miles/20 minutes from all of Asheville's charm & attractions.

It's easily accessible year round, but still secluded. The elevation of the house is 3,450 feet and affords one of the area's most spectacular long range, year round views.

Enjoy the view from the 1,000 square foot, multi-level, wraparound deck, the hot tub, or from inside the home. Set on three quiet, wooded acres of mountain laurel, rhododendron, oak-leaf hydrangea, blackberries & many other native species.

The house is full of artwork and craft from local and regional artists and from the owners' world travels. There are dozens of pamphlets and books describing the many things to do nearby including The Biltmore Estate, The Blue Ridge Parkway, some of the best and most famous hiking trails in the world, and all the wonderful food, art, and music Asheville has to offer!

The deck is huge and that's where the views are. There's a hot tub, a grill, lounge chairs, Adirondack chairs, and a dining table and chairs. You may never want to leave the deck. It's perfect for morning coffee, evening cocktails, or al fresco dining.

Asheville has excellent food of every type, many live music venues, art museums and galleries, antiquing, and every type of shopping. Local craft, art and music are easily accessible. Asheville isn't too big or too small. It's just right!

The driveway to the house is a little steep in two spots, at the entrance which is paved, and about halfway up the driveway. It's a safe, well-maintained gravel driveway. Every type of vehicle is able to get up the driveway easily. A four-wheel drive vehicle is not required except during heavy snow or ice storms. Check to reviews and you'll read that it's not an issue. If you have questions please contact me.

About David

I'm recently retired after working 17 years at Emory University in Atlanta in the Communications and Marketing division.

I was born and raised in Jacksonville Florida, but I've in lived several places in the US and a few places overseas.

I currently split time between the Asheville area and Atlanta. My family has been coming to the NC mountains for almost 60 years and I have family in the Asheville area.

I'm a potter and printmaker.

David purchased this house in 2002

Why David chose Fairview

I bought this house because the views are spectacular, the area is beautiful, and it's nestled in the woods. It's very private, but it's also close to Asheville which has always been a fun, interesting and creative town. There are some many outdoor and indoor activities in the area.

What makes this house unique

This is a magical, private, rejuvenating place. It's amazing how absolutely quiet it is. It's beautiful and comfortable in all seasons.

It's our vacation home, too so it feel like a home, not a rental.

We've been renting the house for over 16 years and some of our guests have been coming back every year for over 10 years, which should tell you something about the place.

It's amazing to be in a place with fast WiFi, hundreds of TV channels, but also feel like you're in a private, quiet wooded environment.

One of the Best Rental Homes

  • 5 of 5

This rental was fantastic-- warmly furnished and well-equipped. Most vacation homes I've rented in the past just had the bare minimum, but David's house had everything we needed in the kitchen, bathrooms, laundry, and bedrooms. We spent a lot of time around the fireplace and in the hot tub. David was communicative and kindly accommodating before and throughout our stay here. He helped us native Floridians troubleshoot some unexpected snow and ice. The location is beautiful, and close enough to Asheville and Black Mountain for trips to town.

Amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cabin and the views were beautiful. My son loved the Jacuzzi. The cabin had everything we needed. We even saw a bear cub in the front driveway. So cute! The cabin is very convenient to Asheville and Black Mountain. We also went to Waynesville. Love the small towns. Everyone is so nice. David was quick to respond to us. Thanks for a great trip to the mountains.

Spectacular view close to Asheville

  • 5 of 5

David, thanks for letting us stay at your house. It was all I hoped for and more. The views in the mornings with the clouds below us made it hard to leave to go exploring Asheville and Biltmore. Great location, great view, great house. It's wonderful to stay a in place that is fully stocked with all the comforts of home. Five days was not near long enough, will be looking to visit again soon. Thanks Ladd

Torn between enjoying the view from the house and the character of Asheville

  • 5 of 5

Along with the great view the house was well equipped with plenty of extras (hot tub, wood stove, etc.). This is a fabulous place and well supported by the owner who responded to our inquiries immediately. Would book it again and recommend it for others.

The only issue might have been the lighting - especially in the kitchen where the overhead is very low. Also be a good idea to prepare new tenants for the drive to the house. If you are coming at nightfall for the first time the rise and turns of the road are quite unexpected. Of course this is the cost of being on top of a mountain with a spectacular view!

Vacation in Asheville

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at David’s place. Everything you would need for your stay is provided in this beautiful home and setting. Coffee in the morning on the deck, watching the clouds move through the valley was our ritual start to the day. Anyone looking for an easy drive to Asheville or all that the areas has to offer, this is the place to stay.
