About Yonder

Yonder

info@yondernc.com

Why Yonder chose Smoky Mountains

The goal was to find a larger home that was extremely close to downtown, but far enough away from the 'hustle & bustle' and a feel for the mountains, but with a 'view to die for'. We also wanted a property we could 'mold' to our personality, and capture some urban flair as well. We also wanted a swimming pool for Summer fun & a large deck area for entertaining. This home fit the bill. The results are nothing short of spectacular!

What makes this house unique

This eclectic & luxurious home, just a mere 4 miles from the center of downtown Asheville, is an upscale hideaway with views like very few others. The house is decorated with a modern art collection, giving it a colorful stylish atmosphere with the comfort of a mountain home away from home. This contemporary gem features a beautifully appointed living room, a dining room that seats up to 12, 5 bedrooms, a large fireplace, big screen TV's, a magnificent deck off the kitchen with a wooded private view on the mountainside and more seating. There then is the larger deck and swimming pool, with the vista of 180 degree views of the mountains and downtown Asheville. Scenic Mountain Retreat has the the unique advantage of being just outside of the hustle and bustle of downtown but only a few minutes away. With views and amenities galore, this house is a dream.

Top of Elk Mountain!

  • 5 of 5

Had my bridal party stay up at this awesome mountain retreat for my wedding weekend. Beautiful and spacious. We loved night time hot tubs with views of the city. Yonder was very helpful over the phone. The key did not work when we arrived but yonder helped us out immediately to get in through the garage! We had a wonderful stay here and would recommend it for any large families or groups to enjoy time to celebrate together in the mountains!

Beautiful Mountain View

  • 5 of 5

We had to book this house very quickly and the staff at Yonder were more than willing to help accommodate our large party. They had the house cleaned and ready to go when we got there! This house has a lot of charm and character. It was a great fit for what we needed. The house has an amazing view of the mountains and downtown Asheville! Close to good food, shopping, and downtown fun. Thanks for a great time!

Great Mountain House

  • 5 of 5

Amazing Views and Very Secluded! We are from the Eastern NC (The Coast) and were not used to driving in the Mountains especially the one way dirt road leading to the home. Once we were able to overcome our fear of the roads in Asheville especially the driveway we had a GREAT time. We had 16 Woman and had a amazing time at the home and as well as in downtown Asheville, the amount of space that the home had twas large enough to accommodate our group. Some highlights/suggestions from our trip: The first morning we were able to watch a baby black bear eat apples from the tree in the backyard, the view of the mountains and the city of Asheville from the deck especially at night was spectacular, relaxing in the hot tub during the evening while drinking champagne, Whtie Water Rafting in Marshall, Bear Cycling in downtown Asheville, the Chocolate Lounge, and we dined at various restaurants but our favorite was Cu'rate.

Great family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We planned our bi-annual Phunnicle family vacation for 21 people. Mostly adults but had two teenagers. What a fantastic getaway! The house, although older, was everything we expected. It was spacious and the view was amazing. We really enjoyed the pool and the deck. The property was only minutes from downtown Asheville and very close to the Blue Ridge Parkway. We enjoyed the hiking, white water rafting and the local establishments. Most of all we enjoyed the family time together in the evenings sitting by the pool on the deck.

As for the property ittself, it was a little dated but that did not affect our experience. Booking was very easy. We did have one problem while visiting but the management staff was very prompt in getting it corrected. If I had once suggestion it would be to add more outside lighting in the pool area and make the light switches for those lights more accessible. Perhaps label the light switches throughout the house so the guests know what they turn on.

Overall, we had a great family vacation and would recommend this property. It was very convenient to downtown and the surrounding areas. You had the privacy and natural environment plus all the conveniences of the downtown. It was a perfect balance.
