Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: We met as undergraduates at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill & in July celebrated 38 years of marriage & as best friends. We have 3 grown children, two sons-in-law, a daughter-in-law & 5 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.
Why the Owner Chose Haw Creek, Asheville, NC, USA:
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.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
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.
