Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this house, which has amazing views, well stocked kitchen, extremely comfortable beds and linens, very nicely decorated. There are 2 master bedrooms on the main floor which made it comfortable for our parents (they didn't need to deal with stairs), there is a very large grand master bedroom upstairs and 2 other guest bedrooms upstairs. The house is a gem and within 10 minutes to the Asheville airport, Biltmore Park, the Blue Ridge Parkway and Sierra Nevada.

Great weekend in Asheville

We rented this home for a long weekend with old friends. It is very comfortable and convieniently located in lovely Cliffs with easy jumps to Asheville, Hendersonville and Waynesville. The home is spacious and and well appointed with a high end “mountain home” feel. Definitely would rent again.

Perfect Asheville vacation home

  • 5 of 5

the home is absolutely beautiful and the perfect place to stay in Asheville. The private community is lovely and the home is perfect for a group. Tons of space, very comfortable bedding, a kitchen with everything you need. The kids had a blast in the yard playing ring toss and other games. The owner was an excellent communicator and made us feel very welcome prior to our visit. We will definitely stay here again!

Nice house, but owner is difficult to work with

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this house, however, a few things to think about before renting:

1. Are you wanting to deal with a difficult owner?

2. How close do you want to be to the Biltmore/Town of Asheville?

When renting this house over Memorial Day weekend for a wedding at the Biltmore we encountered a few unforeseen issues. First, the owner was very difficult and somewhat rude from the beginning. She also was not very responsive or diligent in her review of the extensive contract you must sign before renting. She made a lot of mistakes in the details, such as payment amounts, our names, and the dates, and she also did not have the correct payment amounts when actually billing me through the online website "Intuit". Most importantly, we were barely in the home and we received a message after checking out that she wished we would have treated the home they shared with us with more respect. Ultimately she withheld an extra amount from deposit due to reasons that seemed incredibly petty, such as "sticky floors". Keep in mind there was already a large cleaning fee paid.

The other issue I would consider is just how close to Asheville and the Biltmore do you want to be? We were required to be at the Biltmore quite a bit for the wedding and it took a lot longer than we were expecting because of the windy roads, the hills, and the 30 minute drive it took to get from the actual gates of the Biltmore to the House. If you have plans to be somewhere, I highly suggest you factor in more time than you were originally thinking.

NOTE: The facilities of the Cliffs can only be used by members. Which is not a deterrent, but something to consider if you are wanting to play golf or tennis, etc. The Omni was a great option if you're interested in these types of activities.

Had we not had such a difficult time with the owner, I think our groups overall experience would have been MUCH better! The house has plenty of great qualities and a lot of space to hold large groups, but may not be all that worth it. Best of luck in your search and enjoy the beautiful town of Asheville!
