About Frank Dixon

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.

Frank Dixon purchased this house in 2011

Why Frank Dixon chose Fairview

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).

Amazing House

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Huntley. The weather did not cooperate with our vacation plans but the amenities of the house made up for it. My sons slept on the twin beds on the porch all week and loved them. The house was clean, well stocked and had everything we needed. We plan to return.

Loved all the little touches

  • 5 of 5

What a great get away. Our family truly enjoyed this place. Loved all the nice little touches like fresh eggs and homemade bread. They came to house and helped us get acquainted with the house and all its features. Porch swinging beds were a huge hit. Comfy beds and plenty of towels. Hand soap at every sink. Enjoyed our visit to the farm to feed the animals.

relaxing home in the trees

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our one night stay. The home is well appointed with all we needed to cook and relax and enjoy family time together. Our favorite was the sound of the waterfall just outside the door and we ate all our meals as close to it as possible. With a pool table and generous table for playing games it was the right fit for our family of 4. The hot tub was a perfect ending to a perfect stay.

I would recommend the tour of the hobby farm, seeing the other rental homes and animals was enjoyable.
