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 2012

Why Frank Dixon chose Fairview

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).

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have so enjoyed our time with our family at this beautiful mountain home! The view is spectacular and the house very comfortable with all the comforts of home. Seldom does a place exceed expectations, but this one did. We will certainly comeback is we can! Frank was a wonderful host.

Unbeatable view!

  • 5 of 5

Super accommodations! It's quite a drive up the hill, but really fantastic view and lovely sunsets. Even the rainstorms are gorgeous, as the clouds sweep the nearby mountains and leave behind a cool breeze. Pretty walking trail nearby.

We could not have been happier!

  • 5 of 5

As a family with two small kids, we have learned that vacations work better if we love the house and the setting where we are staying, that way we don't feel like we're compromising if we have to stay home for a nap, or go home early to cook dinner, etc. This house was absolutely gorgeous with breathtaking views, no matter the weather, and was always a joy to be in. It had a kitchen that was a joy to cook in, we loved how it was decorated (neat, clean and tasteful, with hardly any knicknacks for our kids to mess with), there were helpful tour books and nature guides, great access to nature and Asheville, endless butterflies...really, we can't say enough about this place except that we hope to return! Last but not least, Frank is a warm and lovely host, not only with the welcoming eggs and bread (others had mentioned these but they really are a great, and delicious touch), but he gave our family a tour of his farm animals that captivated both of our kids, and that's the kind of thing they will always remember. We are so grateful for this house, this vacation, and Frank's warm hosting.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Frank was a wonderful host. He really went out of his way to insure my wife and I had a good time. I would not hesitate to recommend Prayer Ridge or any of Frank's properties.

The most relaxing time - with the best view

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place! And the view!!! Stayed here for 4 nights - we loved the peace and quiet and sitting out on the deck in the afternoon/evening was the perfect end to a day seeing the sights and hiking. In fact, we didn't eat out at all - much nicer to grill a steak and make a salad and enjoy the view in the evenings and play a few card games. The house is so comfortable - Frank and his family have made it feel more like a home than a holiday rental. They are fantastic hosts - and fresh eggs from their chickens was also a bonus!
