Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Elevacres is a like having your own private resort on a mountaintop. It is perfect for family vacations, receptions, and family reunions**(see note below).

There is a large sparkling SWIMMING POOL with a HOT TUB beside it.

Secluded on all sides, our ten acres of beautiful rolling high meadows provide gorgeous long-range views down the valley.

The swimming pool provides for a wonderful addition to any vacation. It is extremely fun to be able to swim under the stars in a warm pool even in early fall when the nights start getting a little chilly. If you want to get really warm you can jump into the beautiful hot tub beside the pool. You will really enjoy this. The hot tub is open year round. The pool is open from May 20 through October 1, and, of course the rental rate is much different when the pool is open, but there is a way to extend that time a little bit (for up to two weeks before opening or two weeks after closing), by paying a pool season extension fee.

As renters you are welcome to all of the surrounding 120 acres that is owned by our family and extends all the way to the top of the mountain. These mountains have a great combination of forests, high meadows, rock faces, and creeks that will provide for lots of exploration on foot or horseback (we do have a two horse stall mini-barn for your horses).

We also have a large concrete pad set up for half court basketball, skating, skateboarding, and kid cars and bikes.

There is a huge lawn that is great for weddings, receptions, BBQs, badminton, volleyball, frisbee, baseball, or whatever else you can think of.

You may find it hard to leave Elevacres during your vacation to visit the other sites around Asheville. But if you do venture out you will find that we are in the perfect location. Located about twenty minutes from the Biltmore House and less to downtown Asheville, NC Arboretum, malls, and antiques, you will also get a ten minute headstart on everyone headed to nearby elk watching, and downhill skiing.

We still live in the Asheville area and we plan to move back into this house someday when the kids are raised, so we take very good care of it. You will not find a cleaner or better maintained property than Elevacres.

**There is another smaller vacation rental property further up the mountain (out of sight and hearing), so we can accommodate large groups.

Fun!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time playing in the game room and exploring the mountain! The kitchen is big and the tv room is comfortable and cozy. The beds are very comfortable which made for great sleep! I called and texted Kevin a couple of times over 4 days and he always answered or responded. Downtown Asheville is close and easy to get to! I hope to be back later! Oh, and the hot tub was fantastic!

I'm so glad we picked Elevacres for our Christmas trip.

  • 4 of 5

The house was more than I had expected. It was beautiful, clean, organized and very comfortable. The Christmas tree made it feel so cozy and the kids enjoyed opening their gifts next to it. We all enjoyed playing ping-pong and air hockey and a little bit of leftover snow from the previous week was an awesome touch! I would love to see this place in the summer and get to enjoy the pool! I would, and did recommend Elevacres to my friends.

An awesome adventurous stay in the mountains!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the weekend at Elevacres and had a great time. Although the weather was terrible (glad we have a Subaru) we still made it there. Kevin was super nice and even plowed the driveway for us before we got there. When we arrived at 10pm he was still there clearing the snow. We chatted for a little while and then he left. And then the next day he called to make sure we were ok. The house was very clean and everything was labeled in the kitchen. The property has beautiful views especially when everything is covered with snow. We would love to return sometime in the future so we can use the pool and hot tub.

The home was a huge part of the vacation fun

  • 5 of 5

Our group had 4 children ranging in age from 5-7. This house was perfect! They loved the hot tub, the game room and running up and down those beautiful rolling hills. At night, they loved bunking together. As adults, we enjoyed how well stocked the house is and the gorgeous views.
