Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-9)

This elegant home features vaulted ceilings, hand-crafted rock-work, and wormy chestnut refurbished wood. There is one indoor rock fireplace and one on the front flagstone patio. These two fireplaces were handcrafted by a local artisan (some wood provided). While you relax around the fire, enjoy wireless internet connection. Soak your worries away in the hot tub on the back rock patio.

“My Place' is nestled in a mountain cove, with a year-round view of local mountains. In the winter, there is a distant view that will take your breath away. Nourish yourself in this peaceful cove while you enjoy the hospitality of the Smoky Mountains. The Cove at Fairview is conveniently located – just 15 minutes to The Biltmore House, 15 minutes to downtown Asheville, and 10 minutes to the Blue Ridge Parkway. Fine dining, local festivals, and mountain vistas are some of the local attractions our guests enjoy.

The Game Room has something for kids of all ages – a pool table, HD-TV on a 40 Inch Flat Screen, foosball, and board games. The Living Room features HD-TV on a Flat Screen with Blu-ray and Surround Sound. The fully-equipped kitchen features granite counter tops and a convenient layout for cooking and gathering with friends. This home is always impeccably clean. Outside, there are many places to sit and enjoy the woods. There are horses, chickens and Koi fish- if you feel like visiting the animals. Fresh eggs from our chickens provided. This elegant home features exceptional high-tech and rustic amenities.

About Owner/Manager

After retiring from a 33 year career in sales management/ marketing, we visited our oldest daughter Etta and fell in love with Asheville. We moved to the Asheville Area in 2002 and lived in the house that became our first rental, “Our House.” (We built a cabin on the property and moved into it). Soon to follow, came our youngest daughter, Farris, and her now husband Danny. In 2009 their daughter Alyssa arrived and in 2015 Haley was born, making this a true family business.

Owner/Manager purchased this house in 2009

Why Owner/Manager chose Blue Ridge Mountains

We fell in love with Asheville and all it has to offer. We then decided to share the beauty of the Asheville Area and the hospitality of the Smokey Mountains with others. “Our House” and “My Roundette” were on the property when we originally bought it. Both have since been remodeled. We then purchased additional land and built “My Place,” “The Huntley,” and “The Garden Cabin.” “Log Gap” and “Prayer Ridge” were both bought at separate, more remote locations. Both were extensively remodeled.

What makes this house unique

The benefit of staying at “The Cove at Fairview” is the unique experience. Each home offers you a different experience in small ways – outdoor fireplaces, swinging beds, and a fifty mile view are just a few. Also, enjoy waterfalls, Koi Ponds, a Lotus Pond, horses, chickens (enjoy fresh eggs), donkeys, goats, native plants, & flower gardens.

By staying here, you are nestled into all of the beautiful natural settings in this peaceful cove.

While being very private and close to nature, you are still afforded all of the conveniences of technology and are located near all this area has to offer. Truly a place to come and renew yourself. Kick back, relax, and have a true retreat or a wonderful place to land after an exhausting day of fun (downtown is only 15 minutes away).

Guestbook comments from the owner

Fabulous family gathering at The Cove Fairview

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely place to stay while we were in the Asheville area for a family wedding. Our extended family had 3 of the homes at the Cove (including the Prayer Ridge house) My Place was excellent for our family of 6. Our children are all in their 20s and the games room was a great place for chilling out at the end of each day. It really felt like home - not just another hotel/motel. Frank was a great host and really helpful providing advice on local things to do and see.

My weekend getaway with the girls was absolutely wonderful thanks to this beautiful home and welcoming accommodations provided by the host. Everything was in perfect order and as stated online, if not better, and the drive to Asheville was a breeze. I would definitely visit again in the future.

This place is amazing.

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing. Everything about our stay was top notch from the house, the overall property and the owner Frank. The house is beautiful with so many great features for a nice weekend get away. We loved that we felt secluded but were not far from restaurants and breweries. Definitely recommend this place!

Incredible Experience!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at My Place for a few nights and had an amazing time. The home was very nice and clean. They have all important details down - fully equipped kitchen, very comfortable beds and linens, wifi, board games, etc.. etc.. not to mention the outdoor fireplace, hot tub, excellent coal/gas grill. This place has it all!! The hosts were very friendly and welcoming. The location is great - just a few minutes away from restaurants and grocery and 15 minutes from downtown Asheville. I highly recommend My Place! We will be back!

Amazing Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We picked this location for a nice weekend away. It was everything we wanted and more. The house was beautiful and the owners went above and beyond. We were able to white water raft, go out in Asheville, and go see the water falls. It was perfect!
