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.

Nice house, awesome deck for morning coffee or afternoon drink.
Great bird watching in the morning, including 2 bears that strolled passed our deck!!
I would come back for sure!!
Charming place with great views and convenient access to mountains and downtown
This was our 3rd visit to Bear Mountain and it always proves to be a lovely experience! From the time we booked until we left, Sheri and David made sure we had everything we needed (and more!). Their personal touches surely make this home stand out as a lovely place to stay in the area.
The house is immaculately clean, well-cared for, and thoughtfully appointed. One of our favorite pastimes when we visit is to peruse their library and curl up with a good book while we watch the sun set over the mountains.
The living room and bedroom are spacious, allowing plenty of room for our family of 4 to be comfortable. There is also an aerobed available that would comfortably accommodate more guests. The kitchen had just what we needed to eat in for several meals. Sheri provided a list of some favorite local restaurants so we were happy to go out for several meals as well. Tupelo Honey Cafe is a standard local gem and we enjoyed Corner Kitchen as well. French Broad Chocolate Lounge was a great spot for sweet treats. On the nights we stayed in, it was convenient to pick up prepared meals from Ingles or Whole Foods which are both very close by.
The location continues to be a draw for us. You have all the feeling of being secluded in the mountains while truly being just about 5 minutes from downtown. There is also easy access to the Blue Ridge Parkway which allows for breathtaking drives and hikes.
We highly recommend this porperty and look forward to visiting again in the future!
Lovely property and location
Great accommodations. Off the beaten path and super quiet but close enough to be in downtown Asheville in < 10 minutes. Would love to return some time when the weather is better so we can sit outside and enjoy the view. David and Zebaa, super friendly host dog, greeted us and Sheila made herself available despite being out of town. We didn't call on them as everything was as expected and we didn't need to ask for help.
Bathroom was complete with soap, shampoo and plenty of towels. Coffee and cream were provided though we didn't use them.
Modern clean apartment, what a view.
Great remote spot, high up for extended views. Easy access to all areas of interest.
Fantastic Weekend Getaway
Great apartment; very clean and comfortable. The view is spectacular. Sheri's dining recommendations were spot on.
Even though the weather was rainy we enjoyed the mountain views from this apartment-like VRBO. Our place was quiet, immaculate and the bed was very comfortable. Communicating with the owner was a breeze. She provided us with a list of restaurants with commentary. We had fun exploring Asheville (home of top-notch rock and mineral shops) and touring the Biltmore. We will highly recommend this place to any of our friends who travel to Asheville.
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.
