Eben's Mountain Escape-Relaxing, Close to Asheville & everything/Navitat, VIEWS!

Bedrooms 3
Half Baths1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

3 Bedrooms 2 1/2 Baths With Gorgeous Mountain View


Barnardsville, just north of Asheville, Smoky Mountains. Private home located in a small, private mountain community, 30 minutes north of downtown Asheville, 45 minutes to Asheville Regional airport, 40 minutes to the gates of Biltmore Estate.

It is fairly easy to access the home, via easy, paved roads, until reaching the private gravel road. The home affords year round access, but does require a 4 x 4 vehicle if ice, snow, or heavy rain conditions are present. (In other seasons the gravel road can cause issues with certain makes/models of vehicles.) The driveway/private gravel road does have an incline approach to the home, so in the Winter exercise caution with potential ice, and year-round we suggest front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive vehicles.

Please speak with Yonder representative for more information and mountain driving tips.

What makes this house unique

The best rental house ever!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect rental home! For years we have visited the Asheville area. This is the best house we have rented so far.

The home is beautiful, very clean and equipped with everything we wanted.

The view was magnificent! We were high up without a distressing ride. We also loved the area. It was half hour from Asheville. But far enough away so we were not in the city.

In addition, the beds were the best we have had in a rental. This is the home we will come back to in the future!

Semi private house

  • 2 of 5

We booked this house and the description of the house said semi secluded- little did we realize that semi secluded meant there is a man living on the first floor of this house. Although he does not have access to the part of the house that we rented, it didn’t feel semiprivate to us.

Wonderful location for a weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed at Eben's Mountain Escape with two other couples and two toddlers and we absolutely LOVED it! Yes, the drive up is tough--just prepare yourself ahead of time and make sure you are in a low gear with enough speed to get up the highest slope of the unpaved part of the drive--once you get to the paved part, you'll be good. If you get stuck ( like we did the first time! ) just back down a good ways to give yourself enough time to build up speed and you should be fine.

The drive up is totally worth it. The view were incredible, the house was spacious, clean and very well stocked. If you have little ones, we felt like the house was set up very well for them. We did all kinds of activities - Asheville, Pisgah National Forest & Sky Top Orchard & they were all easily accessible to the house.

Thanks for such a wonderful stay - it was a perfect, much-needed getaway!

Great views, beautiful home

  • 3 of 5

The views were amazing to wakeup to and watch the sun rise over the mountains. The home was clean and a great open floor plan and overall we had a great time.

Our only complaints... The site said it slept 10-12 people. This was most definitely not the case and I wouldn't suggest going over 10. We had a party of 12 ladies for a fitness retreat and were happy that we brought an air mattress just in case we needed it (we did, plus made a cot out of the couch cushions.) Great for parties 10 and under.

The driveway was also a concern for some. We had an SUV with AWD and still struggled up the steep road. At one point a neighbor was talking in the middle of the road therefore making us stop our momentum. This driveway is STEEP and because of the stop we had to reverse back several yards to be able to move ahead due to the rubber burning against the road. This isn't a reason to not get the house, in fact gives it more privacy, but make sure you have a car that can really handle an incline.

The house was very clean (clean sheets, bathroom, kitchen, etc) and well equipped. Easy to get to from the interstate and a fun little town nearby! We loved going into Marshall and rafting down the French Broad River.

Owner's Response: Kindal, Thanks for your detailed review! At Yonder we appreciate the feedback, even when it's not perfect. As for the sleeping issues you faced, we are sorry. We strive to be as clear as possible in our description of every Yonder home. For Eben's Mountain Escape we state 3 King beds, 2 twin beds and a queen pullout couch, which is perfect for sleeping 10. We do say maximum occupancy is 12 in case families or groups might want to bring 1-2 aero beds for kids, which happens from time to time. Again, we are sorry that some of your group were inconvenienced. Regarding the driveway, it is steep and we do provide ample description about the driveway on the sites. Your advice is spot on, thanks! We are happy you had an otherwise great time, enjoyed the long range views , sunrises,visited Marshall and had float down the 3rd oldest river in the world! Please let us know when you will be planning your next mountain retreat....we would love to help.

Perfect retreat site

  • 5 of 5

This was an ideal location for our weekend retreat. It allowed for comfortable sleeping arrangements, group gathering and cooking in the kitchen, and break out space on the balconies and living room. We will definitely return for future retreats.
