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 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).

Great vacation at The Huntley!

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacationed at The Huntley for 2 weeks in June/July 2017. We enjoyed every moment of our stay. Frank was so pleasant and helpful. We appreciated his tour of the home to get us started and he also helped us out with many suggestions of things to see and do in the area. He obtained Biltmore tickets for us and set up a day of horseback riding at a local farm. We really enjoyed relaxing on the swinging beds on the porch. The hot tub was a great hit with the kids as well. We loved that the location was only about 15 minutes to all the restaurants, breweries, etc in Asheville, yet at the property you feel away from it all. We even used Uber one evening and there was no problem getting a ride back from Asheville. The location is very private and wooded. The home was very well stocked with everything you could possibly need- dishwashing detergent, laundry detergent, cooking supplies, etc. This was our first time renting a home from anyone and I would definitely return to this cabin again in the future. Thank you!

Great vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

This property was fantastic. Everything you could need was available. The kids loved sleeping on the screened in porch. The owner was absolutely fantastic and took the kids on a tour of his farm. It could not have been a better place to spend a week.
