Nice mountain getaway, yet close to town.
This property was very comfortable and clean. I was staying during a mostly rainy period, but the view from the living room is very nice. There is plenty of wildlife during my stay with a lot of rabbit and bear traffic, and it is a quick drive down to Asheville if one feels the urge to take in the outstanding restaurant and brew scene. At the time of my stay (second week of May 2018) there were two baby cubs and their mother nesting about 100 yards downhill from the cabin, keep that in mind if you bring a pet. I enjoyed watching the cubs play in the trees from the porch/deck, but kept my dog and myself from encroaching on mother bear's territory. I will definitely try and stay at Bob's property again.
Great location, lovely view
Close to the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Folk Art Museum, this vacation house is our go to place for Asheville. Over the past 5 years we have made multiple trips to Asheville and have always enjoyed this home. Situated in the mountains, it is also close to shopping, restaurants and brew pubs. The Biltmore is only about 20 minutes away. Enjoy mornings on the deck watching the sunrise over the mountains. Lovely!
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. It is a pleasure to have you stay at our rental.
Property was perfect and close to everything would def stay here again in the future
Thank you for taking the time to write a review and taking such great care of the rental.
Amazing! We will be staying again 100%!
We had a very nice experience. House was awesome and in a great spot! We felt like we were secluded enough to have privacy and amazing views but close enough to get to town quickly. Bob made everything very easy from arrival, things to do in the area and even telling us about the icy road conditions. My 2 year old son and our dog had a blast outside around the house and we had an awesome time exploring what Asheville has to offer. We want to come back and visit in the Spring or Fall next time. (Our car didn’t make it up the mountain in the icy road conditions) We will stay witn Bob again at this location or at one of his others! Highly recommended!
Very Nice and Easy
Nice location and the house has everything you could possibly want. The whole rental process was very easy and the owner is attentive. We enjoyed this stay very much.
Thank you for your review. So glad you enjoyed your stay. Please visit us again.
Beautiful Views...Even with a Foot of Snow!
We really enjoyed Bob's place. It was exactly as expected. The one thing we didn't expect was that Asheville would receive almost a foot of snow. Luckily, with 4WD we didn't have many problems and could enjoy the winter wonderland views afforded to us. It is close to a grocery store and shopping and not difficult to get downtown. Bob responded quickly and was in constant contact. Would rent again!
Snow in December is a rare treat. So glad you enjoyed your stay.
Great hiking, borders Blue Ridge Parkway land.
