About the property

3 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath Home on 250 Private Acres with Beautiful Views!

We welcome you to Plumlea Farm - a vacation home that you'll truly remember long after your stay has ended!

This charming home on 250 private acres is located only 18 minutes from both Asheville and historic Hendersonville and offers some of the most breathtaking views you'll find in the area. You'll enjoy close proximity (maximum 20 minute drive) to wonderful area activities and sightseeing such as the Blue Ridge Parkway, Biltmore House, Biltmore Village Shopping, Downtown Asheville, Hendersonville Town Square, Chimney Rock, hiking, mountain biking, fly fishing, golf, kayaking, and many superb Asheville restaurants (numerous brochures detailing popular local activities, restaurant menus and maps are in the home for your convenience).

Our location is absolutely ideal during leaf season with gorgeous views from every window of the home! Plumlea also has a sizable covered front porch which offers a peaceful area to enjoy bird watching, spot a wild turkey or deer, read a book from our extensive library or simply take in the breathtaking views and relax in our rocking chairs.

You may also choose to spend your time hiking on the expansive private acreage with great long range views of both Mount Mitchell and Mount Pisgah.

For your reading pleasure, hundreds of books await, including popular fiction and nonfiction titles, books on the Asheville area and an extensive selection of Civil War and WWII history books. In the mood for a good movie or board game? We have over 60 popular adult and children's DVD titles and a number of fun family board games.

The comfortable living room easily seats six with a couch, loveseat and 2 recliners. The living area flows into the dining room with formal seating for six. Just down the hall is our cozy den where you'll find a queen sleeper sofa next to the half bathroom. This room is perfect for an extra guest or babysitter to enjoy an area of their own with doors that close from the hallway for added privacy.

Our fully equipped kitchen contains a dishwasher, refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven, programmable coffee maker, a full array of cooking utensils and spices and seating for 4. Additionally, one of the unique features of our home includes direct access from the kitchen to the screened-in porch for casual outdoor dining with seating for 4.

Whether you're up for an exciting and on the go vacation filled with many unique activities or simply a quiet and relaxing time away from all the hustle and bustle of everyday life, you'll find your ideal retreat at Plumlea Farm.

Downtown Asheville and the Biltmore House are both an 18 minute drive down Route 25, along which you'll pass many restaurants, lots of shopping and great family activities. You can enjoy a vacation of complete relaxation or one that's packed with activities - our location offers the best of both worlds!

Great house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The property feels isolated enough that you can enjoy a little solitude while still being mere minutes away from amenities. Plenty of space and a well-stocked library (books and DVDs) will ensure guests of all ages will have something to do on a rainy afternoon or after a day of exploring the Blue Ridge Parkway. Insider tip: if you are traveling with small kids, be sure to check out Jack Rusher Park in nearby Arden. (It has one of the best outdoor play structures they'll ever see.) We will definitely be staying here again!

Wonderful Vintage Updated Home...This home is lovely. It is represented truthfully on VRBO.

  • 5 of 5

There were 3 of us in our group and we visited Asheville in June of 2017. We would highly recommend this rental to you. The home was very clean, roomy, and well represented. We loved it. We spent considerable time on the screened in porch just enjoying the peace and quiet, and the lovely view. We especially enjoyed the extensive windows in the living room and dining room. There were lovely views from every room. Plenty of beds and bathrooms for everyone. The owners were very easy to work with, very responsive in a timely manner. We had a couple of special requests and they accomodated us with no problem. Please give this rental a try. You'll be glad you did.

Most relaxing vacation we've had in years!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 stayed in this lovely home for a week and had the most wonderful vacation. We researched multiple properties before booking and our entire family agreed that we made the right choice by renting this one. The owners couldn't have been more helpful as we planned our vacation and offered great restaurant and hiking trail recommendations before we arrived. The home is perfectly located because it's close to Asheville, Biltmore House, Blue Ridge Parkway, etc. yet secluded enough that it's super peaceful and quiet when you return after a long day of activities. We also loved the size of the home - perfect for a family of 4 to all have our own space and beautiful views that can't be beat. They have a huge DVD library of popular videos that we enjoyed at night. Overall, this home is simply amazing!

A wonderful retreat to the country; in a peaceful woods setting. Yet only minutes from Asheville but

even before Asheville many wonderful local restaurants.

The house was set up as if it was your families other home-well stocked and complete kitchen and

games,movies and books. All amenities as promised.

Owners were responsive and welcoming.Best rental ever.

A peaceful interlude

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I have just left this lovely home. What an amazing weekend we had. The house is interesting, comfy, and cozy. Love the rooms, family photos, history, and incredible views. From the rockers on the front porch, to the screened in patio, to the Windows inside lending to watching the wildlife, we enjoyed every moment. We all would highly recommend this home in its quiet setting and look forward to returning.
