About Sheri and David
We met as undergraduates at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill & this summer celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. We have 3 grown children, two sons-in-law, a daughter-in-law & 6 grandchildren who are our 'pride & joy.' Our 3 children were born in 3 years, so we couldn't just pick up & travel very easily! We are happy to do our best to make it easy for you to throw your clothes in your suitcase & come on, so email in advance if there is something we may do to give you the sort of dream getaway we would have loved! Also, when you get here, please do not be shy to let us know what we may do or have available to enhance your time here. We continually find things we love about living in Asheville & sharing with family & others. People say that we have the 'the gift of hospitality,' & we are looking forward to sharing this newly & lovingly constructed space with you.
Sheri and David purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why Sheri and David chose Haw Creek
This is the sort of property people want when they travel . . . beautiful lodgings with a luxurious, vacation feel, while containing all the amenities of home, so that all you have to pack is pack clothes.
What makes this Apartment unique
Possibly one of a handful of properties in Western North Carolina offering seclusion, long-range views of the mountains, yet a few minutes drive down the mountain & out of the cove into downtown Asheville, a city known for its many fabulous restaurants, culture, natural beauty & the Biltmore Estate.

Perfect location and amazing views!
The apartment was just what we needed for a quick weekend in Asheville. We were able to get into town very quickly and were centrally located for many different hikes! The apartment was incredibly clean. We didn’t use the kitchen except for a few drinks, but it was well stocked if we needed to cook. The view from the property was fantastic and even better than the beautiful pictures.
Breathtaking view..... made us not want to leave
We had such a great time. Sheri & Dr. David were great to us. We will definitely be back.
Quiet, comfortable, spacious, wonderful hosts, and a sunset view
It so lovely here we were sorry to have to leave! The hosts have thought of everything to make this a comfortable and welcoming place. After reserving our stay, we received a detailed list of local restaurants which helped greatly in planning our visit to Asheville. Our host met us when we arrived and gave us a quick tour of the apartment and some tips to enjoy our stay.
We hope to travel through Asheville in the future and would love to stay here again.
Gorgeous, memorable, want to return!
This is the perfect place to choose in Asheville if you are looking for a gorgeous view, a perfectly appointed apartment and the most generous hosts. We began our days watching the sunrise reflection on the mountains across the valley or ended them with a direct view of a dramatic sunset. A truly spiritual natural experience. It is just a few minutes into downtown Asheville so we had the best of both worlds. And Sheri and David could not have been more gracious, helpful and communicative hosts. We want to return just for this very special place!
Far exceeded expectations!
This property has it all! It's so convenient to Asheville, The Biltmore Estate, and Blue Ridge Parkway, but feels miles away from everything. It's difficult to describe the views without using every superlative I know. They were spectacular and different at different times of day, but the early mornings and evenings (sunsets) were the prettiest we've seen anywhere. We enjoyed having coffee or wine on the covered patio and visiting with their sweet, friendly black lab. The apartment was spacious and absolutely pristine. The living room was comfortable, well furnished, and the two leather recliners were great after a long day. The kitchen had everything we needed, and we appreciated the coffee and fixings each morning. Bed couldn't have been more comfortable and bath was well stocked. Sherri and David were welcoming and addressed any need or question we had. We loved having the restaurant suggestions ,and tried several of them. Our favorites were Tupelo Honey and Carmel. Outdoor seating and music on every corner made eating out more festive. Overall, we couldn't have chosen a more awesome place to celebrate our 40th anniversary, and would recommend it to anyone.
Bear Mountain Retreat is a quiet, private spot on the top of a mountain with both views & easy access to Asheville's best attractions. We are 4 miles from the Biltmore Estate & a 2-mile drive from downtown with its celebrated restaurants and unique character. The River Arts District and West Asheville are 10 minutes by car. The Blue Ridge Parkway, with its scenic overlooks, picnic spots, and hiking destinations, is 5 minutes away.
