About the property

Rates starting at $140 per night

This new listing has a very peaceful setting overlooking a beautiful gazebo, pond, bridge and lighted fountain. THERE IS NO FISHING ALLOWED IN THE POND.

It has Mountain Views and is close to everything Asheville has to offer. Whether you're a foodie, beer lover, antique collector or outdoor enthusiast, our home is centrally located for you to enjoy everything the area has to offer.

Downtown Asheville and The Biltmore House/Estate are less than 6 miles away. The Blue Ridge Parkway Entrance is less than 4 miles away with spectacular views and hundreds of beautiful hiking trails. After touring our wonderful city, relax and enjoy a peaceful setting by our pond and feed the koi fish or sit by the pond in the wood swing and enjoy the pond fountains.

This property is perfect for families, couples or anyone who wants a peaceful, natural, mountain experience while being close to everything at the same time. While drinking your morning coffee, watch hawks, blue herons, and many other birds enjoying the pond each morning.

The WiFi is high speed cable. All living areas are on one floor and easy to navigate. Entry has a security/weather camera. As noted in the first photo for this property, the rental is the lower level.

Although we are pet friendly, the rental is thoroughly cleaned and sanitized after each guest's visit. Dogs must be approved by owners PRIOR to booking. The pet fee is $75 for the first dog, and an additional $25 for a second dog. That is the maximum number of dogs that will be approved unless the owner consents and additional fees would be applied.

As we have worked hard to create a peaceful setting, it is not suitable for loud or late night partying or large gatherings. If you are planning a family reunion, we have an additional rental on the other side of the pond which sleeps six (VRBO property #708010).

Just a note: The address for this rental has been changed by the Emergency 911 system to 10 Heron Pond Lane, although it is in the same location. It does not yet show up on any maps or GPS as of yet. Use the directions provided.

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 Smoky Mountains

We have been coming to Asheville for several years and decided this property was perfect for a custom home. We bought this land a few years ago due to its private and natural setting. This custom home was completed in late August 2012.

What makes this house unique

This property with the gazebo, large pond with two lighted 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 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.

Heavenly Private Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place to stay if you are looking to unwind and relax in your own private retreat like setting. The property is absolutely beautiful and extremely well maintained inside and out. It is very spacious and ideal for a family or two couples traveling together. The photos really don't do it any justice at all! There are not many properties where you have your own pond with koi fish, fountain and firepit. We wish we could have stayed longer and will definitely stay here again in the future.

Dog Friendly Asheville hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Amazing dog friendly retreat. Absolutely beautiful yard area in a quiet location. The property itself is super clean and well appointed. The neighborhood is great for evening walks and close enough to highways and the Blue Ridge Parkway that it is super easy to get around.

Great Property , Clean and immaculate. Views are amazing.

  • 4 of 5

This property was a perfect fit for 2 families , spacious and clean. Close to some good restaurants and grocery stores. Views of the mountains and lake was perfect for early morning coffee time. I However would like to see a note somewhere on the property details that this property is a shared property , owners live upstairs . We had dogs with us and they barked when we were out for a wedding . We got a call from the owners regarding the disturbance. We understand the inconvenience caused because of our dogs but I would have though twice before selecting this property if I had know before . If you are traveling with no pets this is a perfect place in Asheville NC

Owner's Response: There IS a note in the VRBO property information that it is the lower rental. We are sorry that these guests missed seeing that information. These guests had three very large dogs and we normally would not have consented except for the fact that one was a dog they are fostering, (we are a sucker for things like that involving animals!), and the guest said that the dogs do not bark at all unless someone comes to their door. That is contrary to what we experienced as the dogs barked nonstop for several hours. We have never had a problem in the last five years with dogs that caused such a disturbance. Although there are some pet owners that are not responsible, we have found most pet owners to be extremely responsible and that is why we allow pets at our properties. When we learned that the guests were at a wedding, we told them to not worry about it. We welcome our guests' pets, as we also have dogs and we know how much we enjoy traveling with them. If anyone reading this guest's review has any questions or concerns, please review all of our previous five star rating reviews.

Amazing Asheville retreat!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything from the communication to the check in process to the impeccable condition of the property was amazing. These owners pride them self on ensuring every last detail is thought and taken care of for you. We had a chance to meet one of the owners while on our stay and they were very committed to ensuring we were happy with the property and accommodations. We were able to have quick access to both Asheville and the Blue Ridge Parkway from this location and we will be sure to stay here for many of our family vacations to come.
