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.

Memorable Asheville Stay

  • 5 of 5

If you are considering a stay in Asheville, look no further than Eric's Wyoming House. Our recent stay began on December 8 and was accompanied by a surprise 10-inch snowstorm. However, the home's proximity to downtown allowed for undeterred access to all the hot spots via swift and inexpensive Uber rides.

In addition, Eric has thought of all your needs and made sure they are met. The house is clean and comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked with the appropriate equipment, cookware, utensils, dishware, and cleaning materials. The bathrooms have all the touches of a fine hotel. The living room is furnished perfectly for conversation and/or TV viewing.

Best of all, Eric is the perfect host. He is easy to communicate with, quite responsive to all of our inquiries, and made the house easily accessible with keyless entry and locking.

However, most memorable about the beautiful Wyoming House were the Holiday decorations we were greeted with upon entering and enjoyed during our entire visit to Asheville.

We will go back to Asheville, but only if we can stay here.

Very nice!

  • 5 of 5

This house had everything we needed and more. Very well stocked kitchen, comfortable beds and nice bathrooms. The location is good, too. Close to downtown Asheville, it’s a short car trip to get anywhere you’d want to go. Eric is easy to work with and takes great care of his property. We will stay here again for sure.

Comfortable Living

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great stay at the property. The kitchen area was a great place for us to be together in the morning and again at night. The accommodations suited us very well. We particularly liked the fact that it was very easy to Uber about!

Great central location

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for the reunion of our group of 8 friends. A central location, 4 bedrooms (queen/king beds!), and a large living area and kitchen seated us all. Less than 10 minutes to downtown. Arrival/departure instructions were clear and owner very responsive to any questions or needs.
