About Ted Riskin

I fell in love with Asheville, Fairview, and this house, and had to buy it. Renovated it to add the Fairview Vacation Pad. My wife and I live downstairs on the main level. On the lower level is the supplemental apartment along with my workspace, which I use for my therapy practice and to offer workshops in Holotropic (and other) Breathwork and Core Energetics. I specialize in couples therapy, so feel free to inquire about possibilities for transforming your relationship while on your vacation.

Ted Riskin purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Ted Riskin chose Fairview

Asheville is the perfect town - big enough to entertain and feed you well, but small enough to be easily navigable. Fairview is the perfect access point for Asheville - an easy 20 minute drive from almost anywhere in town, but more affordable, cleaner, and more beautiful. The house was built with love and quality by a contractor who moved in with his family after completing it.

What makes this apartment unique

You have a private apartment without being stuck on your own in some cabin in the boonies. You can rent just the main 2 BR apartment, or you can add the downstairs supplemental bedroom as well (additional cost is about half of the main apartment). Staying downstairs involves climbing several flights of deck stairs to join the guests in the main apartment. but you have complete privacy from the rest of your group, too!

Beautiful space with an amazing view

  • 5 of 5

Modern amenities and tastefully decorated apartment with a fantastic view. The hot tub was very relaxing at night and enjoyed walking the trails behind the house during the day.

Ted's place was great! We had a wonderful weekend in Asheville and the house was everything he promised. Amazing view, hot tub, tv and kitchen. If I visit Asheville again I will make it a priority to stay here again.

very clean

  • 4 of 5

very clean and well taken care of. perfect hosts. good distance from town in a secluded area. not as private as we would have liked. you do hear the owners at times moving around, watching tv and the main bedroom is over the garage. it's not especially loud and wasn't often but you don't feel alone the whole time. we were probably at home more during the day than most. couch in front of the tv is very uncomfortable.

Great Experiece!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this amazing location! It is about 20 minutes from downtown in this beautiful countryside neighborhood. Ted made sure we had everything we needed and answered all our questions. The kitchen was fully equipped, beds were comfortable and the hot tub felt amazing after long days of hiking! The neighborhood and area felt completely safe and had a beautiful view of the sunset from the deck. We really felt "at home" in this place and cant wait to return!

Wonderful location, beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

Ted was an excellent host and provided any information you need in order to enjoy your stay.

The creek and the bottom of the property was beautiful and has a bridge to cross. The apartment is very clean and is equipped with all the equipment you would ever need.
