About Christine Ritter

We are a semi retired couple who loved coming up to this area for over 18 years. We came up from Florida to see the leaves change 20 years ago and fell in love with the beauty of this area, so had to own a home. We just love our home. and so do all the people who rent our home year after year. It is soooo gorgeous and soooo special. Most of our renters are part of our family now.

Christine Ritter purchased this house in 2003

Why Christine Ritter chose Hayesville

We fell in love with this town and this subdivision so we hand picked this perfect view and I designed our home so that each bedroom would have its own bathroom. This area is just gorgeous and so perfect. Like a potato chip, you cannot just come up one time, you must do it over and over again. We just love it as do our long time renters. some are like family to us they have been coming back for so many years.

What makes this house unique

The view, the view ,the view, it is incredable. I often go out on our back porch in the middle of the night and look over the lake and at the billions of stars in the sky., it is sooooo relaxing and we are close to everything. We love the small towns and the activities around us too. We are also low on the mountian so we have easy access. We also are on a paved 2 lane road with a circle driveway. So no scary roads. We also have TV's in all bedrooms now too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

LOTS of room to kick back and relax. Loved that every bedroom had a king size bed and full bath too. The deck runs the full back of the house with amazing views! Has everything you could want in cookware and utensils. The homeowner even keeps a few staples on hand. I would highly recommend this home to anyone who wants to get away to the mountains with access to various great day trip locations and the ability to fish, boat and swim in the warmer months. Wish we could have stayed longer.

MY idea of camping...200% better than a hotel, rustic cabin or infringing upon family or friends!!!

  • 5 of 5

💖�Chrissy's Xanadu is by far the MOST perfect By By Best vacation property we have ever had the pleasure of leasing. Views from the gorgeous porch were lovely but home was not too high on a mountain to suffer 'white knuckle driving' to get to it! Paved drive was steep but not a problem for our car nor nerves. Kitchen utensils and cooking equipment were 200% MORE than adequate. Textiles were luxurious and comfy; more books, movies, toys and games than we could have used had we been there for months! This is an absolutely beautiful and comfortable home and Christine was extremely easy to work with. We initially were booked for fall of 2016 but 2 emergency heart surgeries were required before we could recuperate enough to travel in April of 2017. Owner is a most accommodating and helpful property owner. We cannot recommend THIS mountain jewel highly enough and will surely be back to visit once again in the future!!!! Thank you Christine!!👍�

Wonderful Views!

  • 5 of 5

Chrissy's Xanadu is a wonderful home in the mountains. Christine was extremely easy to work with and very quick at responding to our concerns and questions. The home is beautiful and very comfortable. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you need. There is easy access to many restaurants and activities in the area. The views of the lake and mountains are stunning and we saw some incredible sunsets. We will return.

Owner's Response: I really enjoyed having you rent my home and felt like I knew you with our emails back and forth during your visit. Also glad that you enjoyed my recommendations for places to eat too. Yes the sunsets are amazing, along with the sun rises in front of my home. I work very hard to make it a very special home to enjoy. So glad you enjoyed my home, and hope the weather is warmer the next time you visit.

Christine's home

  • 5 of 5

The home, its location, the view, and everything about our stay was wonderful. There were six of us and all agreed that we had never stayed at a more beautiful place. The home was furnished way beyond any other place we've stayed at over the years. We met the owners and they were like we'd always known them.

Got to go back

  • 5 of 5

We stayed only one night, what a mistake. I wish we could have stayed longer before we got to the house but after being there, we didn't want to leave. The view from the back deck is great. The house had everything that we needed and was very comfortable for my family. We will definitely be back. We are glad that we found this place.
