About Bob Spear
We fell in love with Asheville and the mountains, and this beautiful property. The large pond had so much wildlife that we couldn't resist. We are from the Midwest and the mountains here are stunning.
Bob Spear purchased this House in 2012
Why Bob Spear chose Asheville
We have been coming to Asheville for several years and decided this property was perfect. We bought this land a few years ago due to its private and natural setting and built a custom home that enhanced this lovely setting.
What makes this House unique
This property with the gazebo, large pond with two fountains, bridge and island is what is unique to this area. It is a wonderful place to relax, whether on the wooden swing or picnic table next to the pond or building a campfire in the stone fire pit and fixing s'mores. Your private patio is a perfect location to have coffee and breakfast in the morning while listening to singing birds. At any one time during warm weather, we have ducks, herons and other birds. There are koi fish in the pond who like to be fed. A large stainless gas grill is provided for your bar-b-q needs. The home's interior has high end finishes including wood floors throughout, granite counter tops and stainless appliances. Also, you are close to everything, but still have this private setting. We are just a few minutes from downtown Asheville and the Blue Ridge Parkway. It's a great place to relax after a long day of sightseeing.
Local Services & Businesses
Sports & Adventure Activities
We can't say enough good things about this property. The managers of the property (Cheri and Diane) live close by and they greeted us and were extremely helpful in answering questions we had about the area. One couldn't ask for more in the way of furnishings, dishes, utensils, everything. We didn't cook much but it was all there if we wanted to. The outside was great as well with comfortable places to sit and watch the baby geese wander around with their adults. The directions for finding the property were easy to follow and the location worked well for getting into town, Biltmore Village, Biltmore Estate, Blue Ridge Parkway, downtown, etc. It is a place I would stay again.
Mountains and Fountains
The apartment in Asheville has a lovely view over a pond with a fountain, and the owners, Cheri and Diane (top floor) are charming. The layout is spacious and the appurtenances top-notch. We thoroughly enjoyed it. The only slight negatives were spotty cell phone coverage (mountains surround) and awkward food storage. Asheville has spectacular tourist attractions (the Biltmore estate is one of the best in the US), and the hiking is excellent. This is a fine rental.
Thank you for your review. It was nice speaking with you and providing tips on where to go in Asheville.
Regarding your comments on spotty cell phone coverage, we are in the mountains and different carriers provide better coverage than others. We have no problems with cell phone signals. We are not sure what you mean by awkward food storage as we have an entire closet that can be used if you have excess food and, in addition, we have provided a rolling island for food storage and extra counter space.
We hope you had a safe trip back to New York.
Had a great time
This is a an excellent get-away location in Asheville. My family spent 4 nights and we had a great time. The house has all the necessities and it was in perfect condition. The back yard has a large lake/pond loaded with Koi and it was just beautiful and relaxing. I usually stay in hotels, but this was definitely better and it was located near all the major hot-spots. There is also a major grocery market just minutes away. This is also a great location to get out and run along the road. Overall, we had a blast and I would definitely recommend it. I wish we could have stayed longer.
Thank you for your very nice review. We love it when a customer says they would rather stay with us than in a hotel and also how much they enjoyed our property. We would love to have you return any time.
Beautiful property and very responsive manager. This is a truly lovely spot. The layout is wonderful, the decor is very nice, the yard is amazing. Just enough personal touches to make it comfortable and special without seeming like you're staying in someone's space. So appreciative of pet friendly rental of this high quality. Would definitely stay there again.
We are happy that you enjoyed our property and our beautiful city of Asheville on your vacation. Thank you for treating our home as if it was your home. We try very hard to make our rental as attractive and comfortable as possible for our clients. You are welcome to return anytime!
Well appointed home!
We had a great time in Asheville, and your home was so convenient to everything we wanted to do/see. Your home is comfortable, and it had everything we needed We hope to be back soon!
Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review. We are a family business and we appreciate having guests as nice as you. We hope to see you again soon!
Quiet and Cozy! Just what we needed!
Thanks for providing such a clean, cozy, and modern / updated rental. So many times when you rent places you don't know what you're gonna get till you arrive. Your listing and photos were as described and we were very happy. We like to cook some on our vacations and found nearly everything we needed. We spent one full day in just vegging and we really appreciated the fact you have a DVR and movie channels on your cable service. We love do how close your rental is to everything! When you're visiting a mountain town, curvy roads are to be expected so people should know everywhere you drive in and around Asheville is an experience.
We Loved how close this unit is to the Blue Ridge Parkway Visitor's Center and Folk Art Center also.
We can't wait to come back and explore all of the fun outside activities Asheville has to offer and we'd definitely rent this unit again. Very private and cozy. Thanks so much!
Thank you so much for your very nice review. We try to provide everything in a vacation rental that we would like to say. We would love to have you return anytime.
Residential area in a very private setting.
