"This place is awesome!"
When my niece and nephews saw the home, they said "this place is awesome!" If you can impress teenagers, then you know you have great home. : ) We most enjoyed the really large living room. There was enough room for all of us to visit one another, with spaces off to the side for more one on one conversations. The bedrooms were also comfortable and everyone felt good about where they slept. We would definitely return to this home if we get the chance!
We chose Montreat for a get together with family and friends. We had a total of 10 people in the house and it easily accommodated everyone. The house is big family room where we all could hang out, a good sized kitchen, a big dining room table and a very nice screened in porch. We loved Montreat, Asheville and the Black Mountain. Short drive to water falls and great trails. The owner of the house was great and easy to work with. Great place; great area.
Beautiful, warm home
We loved our stay at this property. The large gathering areas were wonderful for our group to be able to comfortably visit and catch up! The kitchen is well equipped for such a property in my experience. The whole place made me feel immediately at home and at peace. I would love to have stayed longer and just enjoyed the peace and quiet!
Great for a large family!
Our family stayed at this property for the second year. It is spacious and clean and works for our large family. The location is great for walking to clubs and Lake Susan, and our kids loved playing in the side yard. The only downside is there is not a bedroom on the first floor. With aging parents, a first floor bedroom would be a huge plus.
Great place for family reunionn
We had a family reunion at Claire's house. It was spacious with plenty of space for 6 adults and 6 kids. We had a wonderful time there. However, 3 stars is because it has been 3 weeks since we left Montreat and we have not received our $500 security deposit back. We left the house in the condition we found it. I have emailed her and recently phoned her, but there has been no response so far.
According to our records, the damage deposit for this guest was automatically refunded by VRBO/HomeAway on July 22, 2017. This refund occurred within 14 days of the departure of the guest.
We have found the perfect home for our family of 10! I thought the 2 bathrooms would be an issue, but had no problems! The adults loved the spacey kitchen, dinning room , and great room. The kids said it was the best house for Hide and Seek! Bedrooms for all plus comfy couches, grass to play kickball, and a big round table great for playing "Spoons"!
