Absolutely perfect getaway !

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at sunset on our first night and we were so excited to walk out on the deck for the most serene view ! The views are stunning and worth the 20 minute drive up the mountain ! The cabin exceeded our expectations with size , cleanliness , and function . The kitchen was completely stocked and a joy to work in . We used the main level bedroom as the master , and the beautiful bathroom and shower was delightful. Our adult children shared the upstairs bedrooms . The dining table was perfect for our card games. We loved our coffee and wine on the deck and hot tub . Next time in Asheville we will definitely love to stay again ! Thankyou for sharing your beautiful home .

Paradise in WNC.

  • 5 of 5

This is our fourth or fifth stay at David's house. We wouldn't keep comomg back if it wasn't the best place to stay in the Asheville area. We have rented other properties prior to finding David's listing and thisis by far the best. We will continue to stay here every time we come to Asheville, and so will you after you experience this little bit of paradise!

Mountain Bliss

  • 5 of 5

The first thing that caught our attention is how completely submerged you are in the mountain experience at this rental. The house is in a very well thought out, restricted "development" high up in the heavily forested Swannanoa mountains just southeast of Asheville. You have to look carefully to see the few other houses tucked away along the mountainside. Clearing of trees and grading has been kept to a minimum. This particular house has an incredible view of the surrounding mountains and valley below. There is minimal traffic or noise. Lots of wildlife. While is Asheville we normally drive to remote locations to go hiking, but running/hiking along the very narrow and quiet "roads" that wind through the mountains in this subdivision (lots of straight up and straight down running/hiking) was very close to that experience and so we were able to spend more time enjoying nature and less time driving around trying to find it. The house itself is comfortable, modern and with the South face, holds heat very well. The weather was cool for this time of year but we were very cozy in the house. The hot tub and deck, with incredible views, provided hours of laid-back entertainment. The owner was very responsive. Our drive to downtown Asheville was right at 20 minutes. The driveway to the unit is rather steep and takes a little skilled maneuvering, (this seems to be the case with most houses in the development), but this helps to keep the houses private and allows for minimal disruption of the mountains, but we do think this should be mentioned. Our Prius was able to handle it. If remote, natural mountain beauty floats your boat, we highly recommend this rental.

Wow - just great!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Mountain House March 8-12 and had a most wonderful time! I brought my daughter and friends. The most beautiful aspect of this house is the gorgeous view. We were lucky to have every season those 4 days. David has thought about everything and we enjoyed all aspects of the house, from the porch, fireplace, hot tubs and just the views. It is in the very small details that sets this house apart - robes in the closets, enough towels, washer/dryer, the art, well stocked kitchen, puzzles and games, plenty of firewood and kindling - loved it and can't wait to return again! Now the drive down the road in snow can be a bit of a challenge but manageable.

Spacious Mountain home near Asheville for a family or group of friends.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed there with my family (5 adults) over Thanksgiving week. My kids are avid rock climbers and the climbing in the area is top notch. The house is near the Blue Ridge Parkway, so there is access to scenic drives and some great hiking trails. The house is large, clean, and well provisioned for a full crew of 6. Thanksgiving dinner was not an issue as the kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, full stove, and dish ware for 6 or more. Quality appliances including microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, toaster oven, and full refrigerator with ice maker. Washer and drier is nice to have for the week. Loved the decorations in the house. You can tell that the owner(s) love this place. Spacious 3 bedrooms. Great heating. Large kitchen table for playing Yahtzee and laughing.... The family room is big enough for all with DVD, Cable, and WiFi for all the relaxing downtime. The deck is huge with chairs for relaxing and reading during the day, and a great hot tub for staring at the stars at night. The house (actually it's a home) is almost at the top of the mountain and ther are maybe 4 neighbors within the stretch of a city block. You can't see or hear anyone. Very private. Very quiet at night. For being a mountain hideaway, its very near shopping, dining, and downtown Asheville. All in all a very pleasant place to relax and have fun for the week with family or friends..... (p.s. there is an indoor fireplace, but because of the wildfires at the time, I didn't want to start a fire. So I can't review it, but it looks great and well used..)
