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 Kenilworth

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.

Hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

Perfect get away for our girls weekend with four bedrooms. We relied on the reviews for our decision and so glad we did. Pictures don’t do it justice. Cozy accommodations with tons of extras. The owner thought of everything! Some examples: makeup remover wipes, hand soap and shower gel, spices and cooking staples, directions to work the cable tv, and the list could go on. The owner was very responsive and proactively reached out. Convenient location. Uber rides to downtown Asheville were only $7-10. Definitely recommend!

absolutely beautiful!! !

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Eric was the most amazing man to work along with, if you had any questions he got back to you right away! When we walked into the house we (8)of us were all amazed at how beautiful and well thought out everything in this house was! The furniture, paintings, wall art!

We parked our cars & used Uber or Lyft to go everywhere (Holiday) weekend! Would stay here every time, & highly recommend!

Ideal family rental

  • 3 of 5

Six friends rented this unit and it seemed like it was just what we wanted to all be able to relax, eat together, and sleep in one unit. All the common areas and 3 of the four bedrooms were good. All of us are retired and good beds are important to satisfy everyone's needs. The room with the twin beds would be fine for children but my two friends didn't have a good experience sleeping in them.
