Amazing Property - Amazing View

  • 5 of 5

We will be back to rent this property again some day! We had everything we needed to take care of our family (approx. 20 of us). Everyone had an amazing time and there was always a great view. On the 4th, we saw about 15-20 different fireworks displays all over the mountain. The last day of our visit we had two bear visitors walk across the back yard, right off the deck.

And then there was that cute little dog that escorted us home on multiple occasions. We learned very quickly you don't want to be in a hurry when following him. He taught us to slow down and enjoy the view! He had no interest in being petted but just making sure we were safe at home each night and maybe a little sunning on the deck!

Can't wait to come back!

Great girl's getaway

  • 5 of 5

They have everything you need to cook from home and hang out! It is quite a trip up the mountain, but obviously worth it for the views! Plenty of space in the house. If you plan to cook a lot at the house you might want to bring your own knives. The ones there are not very sharp. Other than that, this stay was flawless. They have a kitchen filled with plenty of dishes, spices, etc. The internet is a little in and out, as to be expected atop a mountain. We had a blast here! We had 12 people stay and had ample space. Hopefully we can come visit again sometime! Highly recommend staying here!

Everything you could want and more!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with our stay at the Mountaintop Estate. From start to finish, the experience was wonderful. We had 6 adults and 4 kids between 3-5 staying at the house and had so much space, there were rooms we never even went in! We loved the large round table in the kitchen and the surprise play set outside. Highlights of the trip included spotting wild turkeys and a small black bear in the woods just 20-30 yards from the house one evening! The location is wonderful -- it was easy to get to downtown Asheville, Pisgah National Forest, the Nature Center, and other attractions we wanted to see. We would definitely stay there again!

Mountaintop Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in March 2017 and could not have been more pleased with the stay. We had a large party of 6 adults and 7 children, and there was more than enough room for everyone and plenty of activities. The property was very clean and fully stocked with everything you would have in your own house. The owners and property manager were a pleasure to work with. The house is about 15 minutes from most attractions in Asheville. We loved the town and would definitely come back and stay again. Thanks for a lovely vacation.
