Luxuriate at the top of the world. Enjoy a year round mountain view from the sleeping loft, the kitchen, the living room, and the deck.

About Owner/Manager

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.

Owner/Manager purchased this house in 2012

Why Owner/Manager 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.

The perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Prayer Ridge! The hospitality and views could not be beat. It is the perfect getaway home but also an easy drive to downtown Asheville. We’re already planning our next visit!

Fantastic Thanksgiving at Prayerful Ridge!!

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful. A gorgeous Mountain View during the day, and spectacular moon and stars at night.

Frank greeted us and brought us up the mountain to introduce us to our cabin. We walked in to the aroma of bread baking in the bread machine. Beautiful farm fresh eggs were waiting in the refrigerator for our breakfast the next morning. The cabin was spotless and every detail was addressed.

While there we spent a day at the Biltmore Mansion and winery, and also enjoyed the national gingerbread competition and breakfast at the Grove Park Inn. Frank suggested some local restaurants and we thoroughly enjoyed them. The hot tub was relaxing even with the temperatures in the 30’s! It was fun to just chill out and not do anything on some days. We would definitely recommend this place to family and friends. Thank you Frank and family!!

Fantastic Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our four-night stay on top of the mountain. Amazing views and a feeling of complete remoteness, despite being only 20 minutes from downtown Asheville. Our hosts were thorough, exceptionally graceful and giving (we had 18 farm fresh eggs in our refrigerator and a loaf of fresh bread in the oven waiting for us), and knowledgeable of all things, places, and events in the area. We are definitely going back!

Lovely property made all the nicer by the terrific mountain views.

  • 5 of 5

A great mountain get a way for relaxing. The mountain views were quite nice. Quiet and the deck chairs are unique for relaxing as they rock and swivel. Owners were attentive to making sure our stay was all we could want.
