About Eric Lyons

Here I am in downtown Asheville enjoying the day with my oldest daughter.

I am retired, a former Marine and business owner. I love the outdoors and all the things it has to offer. I enjoy traveling In my RV, kayaking, camping, bicycling, hunting, fishing, and spending time with my family.

I have two wonderful daughters that keep me going.

Eric Lyons purchased this house in 2013

Why Eric Lyons chose Asheville

The reason I chose Asheville for a rental/retirement home is because my oldest daughter lives here and we enjoy spending time together in this awesome town.

I spent many years as a youngster in this area when my grandparent's came here for vacation and the majestic beauty of the Blue Ridge mountains' and surrounding areas.

What makes this house unique

This home is perfect for family or group events. It has an open floor plan, spacious rooms. All bedrooms have walk-in closets.The house sits on a 1/4 acre lot,with a hardwood shaded back yard for the kids to play, and a deck for outdoor seating and grilling. The kitchen has all new S/S appliances and is well stocked with dinnerware, pots, pans, utensils, etc. A inventory list is on the inside of cabinet door to let you know what is in each cabinet. The washer and dryer are state of the art and are used to wash, and steam sanitize your pillows and bed clothes. The Kenilworth neighborhood is quiet and friendly.

You will see people jogging, bicycling, walking their pets. There is a park just 300 yds.away with a playground, ball field, tennis courts, and basketball courts. There are 3 churches within 0.2 miles, and 15 restaurants less than a mile away. For the golfer, there are 10 courses within 3.1 miles of the house!

Well equipped and close to everything

  • 5 of 5

Better than photos show! Clean and comfy. Good layout and all amenities for our group of 8. 3-5 minutes drive to downtown, arts district, Biltmore. No view from this house, but a 5-15 min walk up to new Beaucatcher lots was lovely.

Definitely will return

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Eric for the prompt communication and the well maintained house. The house is very clean and located in a nice neighborhood. Two small parks for kids to play in two blocks away. It's convenience to have extra paper towels and trash bags. The kitchen is well equipped for thanksgiving dinner. We feel like in our own house. Highly recommend and definitely will return.

The home was well appointed, spacious and clean. Great location and safe neighborhood. Eric was great to deal with and was even nice enough to mail back a forgotten item. Will definitely rent again when we get the chance!

Great place to stay! Close to downtown

  • 5 of 5

I am so glad that I found this place. We were looking for a place to stay that was relatively close to downtown for a girls weekend. This place was perfect. Only about a mile from downtown. VERY clean! Easy to get to. The owner was very helpful as well. I would highly recommend this place if you are looking for a great/ clean place that is close to downtown.
