About Tim & Lisa Wightman

We love Asheville & visited for many years. We fulfilled our dream building a vacation home in the mountains & want to share this beautiful home with others so they may enjoy the sounds of nature away from the hustle & bustle.

Tim & Lisa Wightman purchased this house in 2002

Why Tim & Lisa Wightman chose Fletcher

The unit is at the end of a road almost to top of mountain via concrete road, where you will experience peace & quiet with the sounds of nature. Enjoy nights on the deck viewing millions of stars.

What makes this house unique

Secluded BUT not remote with easy access to many area activities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a very pleasant stay, the unit is very cozy. The fall leaves & the mountain views from the deck are just gorgeous! The deck is perfect to enjoy the calm & the sounds of the surrounding nature. This week was so relaxing, our family really enjoyed it. We hope to come back soon. Thanks to Iris, the manager, for being so helpful in making this happen so smoothly for us.

Beautiful Views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic weekend at this location! We rented both upper and lower levels. We had plenty of space for everyone and in the evening really enjoyed sitting on the porch with the view while cooking dinner as a group. The kitchens we well equipped and the decor and amenities were above and beyond. Everyone raved how great they slept. and the new bunk bed room was so neat! Everone wow'd at its rustic décor and siding barn door. It seemed like everyone had a tempurpedic mattress , even on the pull out couch. This was wonderful after a nice day going to the local vineyards and checking out Sierra Navada Brewing company. This rental will not disappoint. I would recommend this location to anyone. Thank you for sharing your lovely house!

Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the entire house and had a wonderful stay! The house was very clean & had everything we needed. We loved having a fire each night after being active during the day. It is a great place to stay for visiting downtown Asheville, hiking Chimney Rock Park & tubing on the French Broad River! Also, the owners & manager were all very quick to respond any questions/concerns. The manager was very helpful as she provided a lot of information about the house & recommended places to visit. I would recommend this rental to anyone!

Very peaceful and very clean unit!!!

  • 5 of 5

I and the rest of the family felt like we were at home. Great location not far from Ashville. Stores in Fletcher were great for all those last minute needs. Even the local neighbors were great. The owners were great to work with and staff great as well.

Upon our return home I asked my granddaughter what did she enjoy about most about the trip she said, "the best part of the trip was being with my family".

Thank you Tim and Lisa for helping me accomplish my mission.
