About the property

Ebsen Vacation Home was originally built by Buddy Ebsen's parents Christian L Ebsen and his mother Frances. The deed has been secured from the local courthouse and has been framed for the walls at the cottage. They came down from Illinois and moved to Florida then came in Oct of 1946 bought this land in the Naples area of Hendersonville, North Carolina for their summer home to be built and live there during their summers when Buddy was a young lad.

In later years Buddy Ebsen (AKA as Jed Clampett on Beverly Hillbillies) would come from Hollywood to relax and stay here at this cottage. I

So come and enjoy the Ebsen Summer Home built in 1940's and updated with all the modern conveniences so you can enjoy the Yester years and still have the comforts of today.

The Carolina Granite Fireplace that stands so majestic in the living room with 10 ft ceilings ,hardwood floors and large living room for lots of relaxing. and here you can see the Blue Ridge mountains from the windows.

The Kitchen has large open windows to allow the morning sun to kiss the windows sills and as you make some hot tea or cup of coffee and just outside that kitchen door is waiting a deck with a welcoming chair and table to enjoy the morning as the dew begins to lift and dry from the boards and the azaleas and blooming cherry tree and old apple tree lifts their heads to the sun you enjoy the quiet and peace of the back veranda with no worries and the planning of your excursions for the day. Then to remember that at the end of the day and tired you can still return to this deck and enjoy the evening and night comfortably because the mountains nights are quiet cool even in the summer months that is like a refreshing drink of water to cool the insides as well as the outside from the heat of the day.

Then retire to the bedrooms covered with Egyptian sheets so silky that when you sleep and you arise in the morning rested and ready for the next day excursions..

There are alot of places to see and enjoy while your stay at the 'Ebsen Summer Home'

This house has also a Front Covered porch that you can view the Blue Ridge Mountain rocking chair with outdoor furniture open windows to enjoy the outside seeing the trees and beautiful azaleas that adorn this 1940 Bungalow house.

Short distance of 15 minutes Asheville, Brevard, Hendersonville, Tuxedo, Lake Summit and Lake Lure. 30 minutes to Pea Ridge Equestrian Center. 6 minutes to Western Carolina Agricultural Center.

Each place has it unique shops to purchase things that are made locally for tokens to make your stay enjoyable and life time of memories to cherish.

As Jed would put it 'Come and sit a spell'

About Jeanette Glenn

I am a native of Hendersonville NC .

Jeanette Glenn purchased this bungalow in 1999

Why Jeanette Glenn chose Hendersonville

In 1999 I bought this first piece of property and for many years it was a monthly rental but the history behind the scenes that where told to me about Buddy Ebsen and his family actually bought this property many years ago and built a home and a cottage and this was there summer home. AKA Jed Clampett and I thought was a beautiful way to display yester years and let other people enjoy it.

What makes this bungalow unique

I was so impressed of course with the property because of the views from the front porch and all its history.

So as Jed would put it 'Come and Sit a Spell'

I recommend you do this very thing. Relax, smell the mountain air, and if you like walk the grounds it is just like it was back in the early 1940.

First time VRBO, learned a few things , overall happy

  • 3 of 5

Our first time using VRBO and pretty much last minute for high season so we grabbed this place. We used our imagination when looking out the front porch over "the interstate" to view the mountains. In its day before progress we imagined a quiet serene view. Whether it's history of the Ebsens is true or not, we did embrace the ambience of bygone years. And although Mother Nature didn't deliver the Fall Foliage as we had hoped, our excursions around the area were convenient and fun. As for recommendations, please do replace the master suite quilt I was glad I brought my own linens. Repairs are needed throughout. The electrical situation puts a bit of fear in a nights sleep. Luckily we did enjoy the gas logs, after, my husband tapped a few times to unstick the thermostat. A better set of cookware would be nice. Paper goods were appreciated, but could have used a few trash can liners .And although the complementary wine was a sweet gesture, I personally would have preferred coffee filters , I made do with paper towels. I'm use to camping so we brought about everything we needed. And just like good campers we left it better than we found it. I hope you will take heed and a little effort to make this lovely old home place just a bit better to make up for the location "progress" has stolen from you. All in all we enjoyed our stay and would recommend for the price..... so far.

Owner's Response: Hi Susan To answer some of your comments. I don't know what mountain you were looking at but it does not look out over the interstate. No time has not stolen from the natural history of this property. It has updates. I guess you were not used to these due to camping where you have to go a bath house probably in the camp ground. Instead of hot water and a nice shower with towels while you could dry off and not have to walk back to your site in your PJs. As far as the deeds on the wall to explain the history and who owned it . I spent a whole day at the Henderson County court house looking through microfiche to find these documents. So my guest could feel proud that they stayed where a well renowned person had lived. The electrical is safe and every measure has been taken into consideration for the safety of all my guest. Also there are adequate cookware in kitchen. As well as a electric stove with 4 burners and a refrigerator in kitchen of course you are probably not use to because you are use to a cooler or a butane cook stove. I also have direct TV with channels for the whole family to enjoy and wifi I'm sure you took advantage of while you were there. Which you could not get while you are camping. Last but least linen. If I recall when I cleaned the master suite you had used the linen provided. The coffee pot does not need filters it has it's own filter basket so you don't have to have the paper ones. Trash bags are provided when you arrive but not for your entire stay. I love to hear good constructive criticism but being opinionated is really not a good sign of character. So I hope you take heed so that the next vacation rental owner want have to put up with your sarcasim. I have other guest that return and love it here.

Back in time

  • 5 of 5

Took us a step back to slower-paced less stressful days. Loved the decor and the cozy, homey feel. Convenient to places we wanted to visit and were able to return early enough in the evenings to watch TV and relax. Got in some much needed downtime. It was great!

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had an absolutely amazing time staying here. A secluded location but very close to Asheville, good hikes and breweries. The cabin had way more than we anticipated and truly was a home away from home. Very rustic and cozy, hot water and a fire pit with horseshoes, a TV with enough channels for your downtime if necessary. Everything was wonderful. Definitely recommend and will hopefully come back!

Owner's Response: Great sounds like it was just what you needed. You all come back Ya hear and sit a spell as Jed Clampett would put it. Upon on the little mountain sitting outside at night with the fire pit burning you will notice how close the stars are to you.
