very nice home with great views. Probably the cleanest best rental design we've stayed at anywhere in the country and we've rented homes in colorado, washington state and new york state.

Great location, clean and spacious home

  • 5 of 5

The house is located on a mountain with beautiful views yet it is just a 10 minute drive to downtown Asheville and a short drive to Blue Ridge Parkway. Uber cost under $10 to get to downtown. The house was comfortably furnished and the owner provided everything we needed for our stay. The kitchen was well equipped and exceeded our expectations. A nice touch was that there were tons of flyers, guides, and brochures about the area which helped us plan our daily adventures. I would highly recommend this house if you are planning a vacation in Asheville.

Rough Start. Great Ending.

  • 4 of 5

We arrived to the property late Friday night and there was not a key in the lock box. We tried contacting the owner but he was out of the country during the time of our stay. We also contacted HomeAway.com and the customer service was terrible and offered only to send a courtesy message to the owner. We were all frustrated to say the least so we got a hotel for the the night. Thankfully, the next morning the owner contacted us and the local contact was able to get us into the property for the rest of the weekend. Apparently, the previous person who stayed at the property did not put the key back into the lock box and placed it under a lantern?!? Craziness!

Although it was a rough start, the owner was very apologetic and we received a partial refund for the night we were not able to access the property. The house is spacious, super clean and comfortable. We really enjoyed hanging out on the deck in the rocking chairs. My only feedback would be that the towels probably need a refresh/update. The bed linens were great and comfortable. I don't think the pictures really give the house justice. We'd stay here again despite the hiccup. The location is perfect!

Quiet Gem in the Hills

  • 4 of 5

Two of my good friends from the West Coast came to Asheville for our annual "girls" weekend. I found this lovely 3 bedroom home on VRBO less than 10 minutes from downtown Asheville and Grove Park Inn. The house was immaculate and has an amazing view from the large front porch. The kitchen was fully equipped and there were instructions on how to use the TV remotes (often forgotten) as well as information on the area. The only negative to this house is the driveway. It is gravel and not very wide and is shared with another house. We had a lot of problems backing out of the very long driveway and executing a 3-5 point turn was challenging at times. In addition, Uber had a lot of trouble finding the house. We usually had to message them with detailed instructions. Other than that, it was a lovely stay and I recommend the house and location.

WE HAD OUR TIME HERE

  • 1 of 5

We had a difficult timefinding the right driveway,more instructions would of been helpfull. Also dont plan on bringing a trailer or two cars,no room to park them.Three miles from Asheville thats true but its a steep hill ,good view once your home.Beds were extra firm hard like hard.Also we left a day early the smell from people before us didnt have sucsess with fireplace,the smell of smoke was strong every time we entered from outside it was not good..

Not that impressed.Next time we visit Asheville will not be there.

Owner's Response: After operating Mountain Retreat for eight years, and receiving mostly positive feedback, including over 60 reviews, I regret that it did not meet your expectations. Parking can easily accommodate two automobiles, and parking is restricted to two which is stated in the rental agreement and house rules. Vacationers have parked as many as four vehicles on the drive which is not recommended as the cars have to park two in front of the other which is inconvenient. I am glad you enjoyed the mountain views. The state highway that leads to the property is a typical mountain road with switchbacks that rises 1000 feet in elevation from downtown Asheville and a ride that many people enjoy. As your expectations were not met, I am puzzled as to why you did not contact me during your stay. There are instructions in the house that say if you find anything about the property unsatisfactory to email the owner immediately which you did not do. Owner
