One will quickly find that our home is the perfect location for a peaceful getaway in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Located in the private Kenmure Association, this idyllic mountain getaway has breathtaking views at every turn. The gated community is both exclusive and secure, which gives one the peace of mind necessary to enjoy a great vacation. Kenmure Country Club, one of the nation’s premier golf clubs, stands within our Association grounds. Please note, however, that rental of our home does not include access to the club’s facilities, which are restricted to its members.
Also nearby is the Blue Ridge Parkway, with legendary scenic drives. The villages of Flat Rock and Hendersonville, NC are both picturesque, small mountain towns in the area. Hendersonville, a short three-mile drive, is a truly unique town with many antique shops and quaint restaurants and cafes.
Within walking distance from our home is Carl Sandburg’s home, where he produced much of his poetry. To view the same scenery that inspired one of America’s greatest poets is truly a treat and one which makes our location especially prime. There are also many hiking trails nearby. From skiing in the winter to whitewater rafting and biking in the summer, our area is a perfect travel destination for the outdoor enthusiast.
From the moment you walk in the door to the vaulted living room, you will be struck by the beautiful wooded view beyond a spacious deck, perfect for meals cooked on the gas grill, or just enjoying a nightcap while gazing at the nature that abounds. Also striking is the newly renovated interior of our home. The living room has a beautiful working fireplace perfect for chilly mountain nights. The dining room is great for family meals or entertaining guests. There are two bedrooms on the main level, each with its own bathroom. A third bedroom, on the lower level, has a sofa that is a perfect place for kids to sleep. The home is bright and inviting, with views of the natural beauty of North Carolina. What you will notice immediately upon entry into our home is that the furnishings and décor are not what one expects in a rental -- it feels like home.
Whether you are a family looking for outdoor adventure or a couple looking for a place to get away from it all, our home will be an idyllic home-away-from-home for you!
From the moment you enter you will taken by the tranquility and serenity of your surroundings. The air itself is filled with the aroma of fresh pine and possesses an almost medicinal quality. When you enter our beautiful foyer you will immediately be taken by the vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors, and the warm décor. The interior is elegant, comfortable and inviting. It is truly a place to kick up your feet and enjoy the warmth of the fireplace and beautiful vistas. On the first floor there is a Master Suite with a Queen bed and another bedroom with a French Sleigh bed.
The house has a truly open, flowing floor plan with 2200 square feet. The kitchen has state-of-the-art appliances and striking granite counter tops. Even the kitchen has a perfect view of the outdoor natural surroundings. Off the back of the house, there is a deck with a Jenn-Air Stainless Steel Gas Grill. It is a perfect location for a barbecue or a nice relaxing evening with loved ones.
Nearby, there are many exciting activities. These include: Mt. Mitchell hiking, whitewater rafting, horseback riding, and boating. There is also great skiing only an hour away at the Wolf Laurel Ski Resort.
Whether you are searching for a family vacation or a romantic getaway, our home is truly the best option.

Beautiful, welcoming and comfortable - great home away from home
Had everything we needed and more. Great location! Would definitely stay there again.
The home was so warm and welcoming!!!
We so enjoyed the Mountain View’s, trip to Asheville and the total peace and quiet.
Quiet Holiday Hide-away
Nicely situated in gated community, quiet, roomy, with comfy and luxurious decor. Plenty of room for two sets of grandparents and an aunt visiting family in Hendersonville. The back of the house overlooks a wooded area and houses to each side are far enough apart to provide nice privacy. The house was perfectly convenient for shopping and for visiting family in Hendersonville.
Access was very easy for us and our guests and we appreciated having the garage available for unloading luggage and groceries in the cold and rain. As we cooked and hosted several family meals during the Christmas holiday, we were pleased to find a well appointed kitchen and plenty of dining room.
Once we figured out how to use the app on our phone, communication with the owner was simple and response time was very good.
Beautiful and peaceful!
We weren't expecting the long ride up the mountain to the house, but it was a beautiful ride, so we didn't mind. The owner of the home was very nice and allowed us to have a couple of the grandkids join us. The house is beautiful and comfortable. I've been trying to talk my husband into a king sized bed, and since this stay, I may have him convinced.
Thank you for your kindness and hospitality, Catherine!
Melody, thank you for kind words:)
Wonderful vacation getaway!
This property fit our needs to a tee! We enjoyed our stay from start to finish. The home is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The location was perfect for traveling into Hendersonville (10 minutes away), apple orchards (Skytop), DuPont Forest and Carl Sandburg's estate for hiking. Love Flat Rock's new restaurant Honey and Salt for breakfast. The home is pet friendly and Coco loved it too. Thank you Cat for correcting the cable issue so quickly. It certainly is peaceful & luxurious!

Great Stay as expected.
2nd stay. This is a great place and the owner is easy to work with.
Maybe add some wine glasses. And fix the microwave turntable. Minor stuff.
