Why Stephanie Joy Johnson chose Mountain Home

WHY THIS PROPERTY: I am passionate about living in these awesome Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina and adore sharing my vacation rental homes with guests who come to experience our area’s mountains & towns. I take exquisite care of my properties and am available anytime to see to your needs. I make sure each home is exceptionally clean, meticulously well-maintained and the hot tub sparkling with fresh water. I have lived in Asheville, North Carolina for many years and find great joy in discovering more and more reasons why this is the BEST PLACE IN THE WORLD TO LIVE! Asheville is consistently in the “Top 10 Places To Live” according to almost any criterion published! It’s a diverse multi-cultural blend of mountain folk and cosmopolitan society set in a dramatically beautiful mountain setting. It is my heart-felt desire to provide gorgeous welcoming homes in spectacular settings and to share this town with you!

What makes this Cottage unique

With all the special touches, I promise you that my vacation rental homes will feel as though you are staying at a friend’s warm inviting home rather than a 'vacation rental house.' You'll appreciate the tasteful decor and thoughtful care my homes reflect. Each home has been lovingly remodeled, elegantly furnished, beautifully decorated and thoughtfully accessorized with special amenities to pamper you including massage chairs, hot tubs, high speed wireless Internet, king beds with sumptuous bedding, HDTV’s & DVD's, movie libraries, quality well-equipped kitchens, fireplaces, central heat & air conditioning, washers & dryers and much more! Unique to my homes are all the amenities offered for babies and children. There are cribs, pack-n-plays, strollers, high chairs, baby bath tubs, stuffed animals & blankies. Older children love to play on the outdoor playgrounds with forts, slides, swings, climbing walls, etc. plus games, books, toys, kids DVD movies and more. Kids of all ages love to roast marshmallow at the firepits. My homes are easily accessed, right in-town, close to grocery stores, restaurants and shopping. No winding mountain roads to get lost in or long drives to town. The homes are in peaceful, lush vacation spots where you can relax and feel at home. Rather than dealing with a third party management company with limited business hours & knowledge of a home, you can deal directly with me, the owner. I am available to you 7 days-a-week, anytime between 9 AM and 7 PM and after hours for emergencies. I know my properties intimately because I have personally had them restored, remodeled, furnished and equipped. YOU are my full time business! Because I live locally, I am available whenever you call. Email me for my web address to see all 10 of my vacation homes. Take a virtual tour at AshevilleVacationHomes.

The owner was so helpful and available if we needed any additional information or assistance. We would highly recommended this property to anyone because of the perfect location to everything in the area.

                                                                  Cozy home away from home with everything you need!

                                                                  Cara P.Naples

                                                                  We evacuated Naples Florida for Hurricane Irma and rented a home from Stephanie..... our home away from home was perfect for our family of four plus dog. The house was well equipped with everything you would need and more as all we brought with us was our clothes. Our boys loved the swing set and our dog enjoyed the spacious back yard. Thank you so much for everything! We will definitely be back to the area....

                                                                  Great stay in cozy, secluded cottage

                                                                  Mary Ann A.

                                                                  My husband, our dog and I had a wonderful weeks stay at Rose Cottage. Everything we could have wanted was provided and more. The owner has thought of everything and has left clear instructions for appliances, electronics,etc. She also called to check that all was well.

                                                                  The house itself is nicely furnished, very clean and comfortable. We really enjoyed the hot tub. The kitchen was the best equipped I have ever seen in a rental . The restaurants in Hendersonville are very good and 10 minutes away. We enjoyed Postero, Renzo's and Mezzaluna. We hiked on trails in Chimney Rock, on the Blue Ridge Parkway and visited small towns like Saluda and Tryon, as well as visiting Asheville. We definitely would stay here again.

                                                                  Gorgeous, clean & well maintained!

                                                                  The location is ideal for privacy as well as not too far away from area attractions.

                                                                  In addition to the gorgeous home, we absolutely love the pool, hot tub, fire pit and large backyard. Our 11 year old son and 2 year old chocolate lab were outdoors most of the time!

                                                                  Thanks, once again, for making this another memorable vacation!

                                                                  A little piece of magic hidden in the woods!

                                                                  Valerie S.

                                                                  What a magical time my family had at the Rose Cottage! We were there for 2 weeks and the first week had our grandchildren with us. Everything at the cottage suited the kids from the million toys and stuffed animals stocked in the playroom to the play set in the backyard to feeding the neighbor’s horses apples each morning to making s’mores at the fire pit! For the grownups it was sitting by the pool (too cold to go in on this trip) with a glass of wine, cooking out on the great grill, of course the fire pit and s’mores, and enjoying the total quiet as the cottage is surrounded by woods! The pictures of the cottage on the website are absolutely accurate . . . it is lovely inside and out, and the home and grounds were very clean and well kept! Once you drive down the path to the house you become immersed in a peaceful and wonderful atmosphere! When we posted pictures on Facebook of some of our adventures, several friends asked about the cottage, which we of course highly recommended. Thank you so much to the owner Stephanie who was the epitome of customer service . . . she provided excellent communication and information before, during and after our stay!!
