About Barclay Garnett

I manage a few properties, both residential and commercial which allows for a bit of travel here and there. It is always nice to be able to meet and converse with tenants and their families and hear of their travels.

Barclay Garnett purchased this house in 2005

Why Barclay Garnett chose Smoky Mountains

Asheville is my favorite place to visit, either for pleasure or business. My dogs and I love the easy drive from Fort Lauderdale to Asheville and visit quite often! I enjoy the mountains and surrounding towns and have made many new friends here.

What makes this house unique

The shopping is always a pleasure here and there are so many excellent restaurants. There is always something unique and exciting happening in Asheville.

This is a very comfortable home with amountain view that was enjoyed by my family. Downtown Asheville, the Biltmore are a short drive. Mountain hiking a bit longer drive. Convenient shopping for supplies and eateries are just down the road. Overall great property! Thank you Rick for prompt response to questions!

Beautiful, clean & comfortable with a great view.

We just got back from our stay at this rental home and we really loved it. It was very clean, had comfortable beds & furniture, was conveniently located, had a beautiful view and got lots of light. Since we were there for only 4 nights, we were thrilled to find filled hand soap dispensers, liquid bath soap, lots of extra toilet paper & paper towels, etc. How nice that we didn't have to buy consumables to get us through the 4 days! Our dogs loved the fenced front yard and we enjoyed eating on the back deck in the sunshine. Although the home is in a neighborhood, the higher elevation and the surrounding trees/plantings blocked any view of the neighbors and the home felt very secluded (yet close to town!). We never wanted for anything and, when I texted the owner/lessor with a question, I got an immediate response. We hope to rent this next year on our yearly trip to Asheville!

We spent the month of August in this beautiful home. It exceeded our expectations. Could not have been a better location. It is literally about 5 minutes to downtown, the Grove Park Inn, and interstate access. It is on a hill in a heavily wooded neighborhood and feels secluded and away from hustle and bustle, yet it is minutes away. The home is beautifully decorated. The pictures accurately represent the home. We enjoyed the views from the deck where we captured some spectacular sunsets. Barclay and Rick were wonderful hosts and were quick to respond to anything we needed. The kitchen was fully stocked with every type of pot, pan, gadget, tableware imaginable. We loved our time there and definitely will come back and recommend it to friends. Thank you, Rick and Barclay, for sharing your wonderful home. Can't wait to come back.

We have vacationed at this lovely house for five years now, and we like it now just as much as we did the first time we stayed here! It is both elegant and homey and the views of the mountains are just gorgeous. And it is right in Asheville, so all kinds of fun things to do are nearby. Finally, Barclay and Rick are just the best!

Skyview Escape was the perfect house for our one-week vacation in Asheville. The home is beautiful inside and out! We enjoyed starting and ending our day on the back deck that has a beautiful view of the Pisgah mountain range. Downtown Asheville is a quick 5 minute drive from the house. Uber service from the house was excellent which allowed us to enjoy the brew scene in Downtown! Barclay was very responsive when contacted. We look forward to renting this house again in the future and would recommend it highly to anyone!!
