About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

E-z livin is a fully equipped, pet friendly, 3 bedroom and 2 bath home with a kitchen, dining room, comfortable living room, deck, washer and dryer and a large yard.

It sits at the end of a short, private, dead end road and is surrounded on three sides by forest. You have the feeling of being in the country but you have the convenience of the city at your fingertips.

Each bedroom is complete with a new eco friendly memory foam queen bed, new linens, and space to unpack.

Spread out in the comfortably furnished, wide open living room. One of the couches has a recliner built in on either side and the other couch and chair are futons that lay flat to accommodate extra sleepers. As in the rest of the house it's filled with outside light, a fresh coat of paint, and has gorgeous hardwood floors throughout. The brand new 42'' samsung smart tv is linked up with my netflix account for a night of puttin up your feet. I also have wifi so you can easily stay connected and share all your amazing trip photos.

The dining room table has an extra leaf for expansion and chairs to accommodate everyone.

The kitchen makes it possible to have multiple chefs at work with space to spare. The brand new samsung range has a couple handy features like quick boil, a smooth surface for easy cleaning, and a yet untested chicken nugget setting for the oven which for some reason is hilarious to me. The cabinets are stocked with plenty of dishes, silverware, glasses, pots, pans, spices, and even a hot sandwich press. Attached to the kitchen is a large pantry/laundry room with a front load washer that makes it easy to wash large or delicate loads.

The covered front porch is a great place to drink a morning cup of coffee or watch a rain storm while the massive back deck has hosted more bbq's than i could ever count as well as countless hours of sunbathing or reading while listening to all the chirps emminating from the forest. The big back yard is a great space for pets or kids to burn off some energy and there is a large fire pit right on the edge of the tree line.

I also just installed a new hvac system for warmin up or coolin off, a new hot water heater so you know a good shower is always available, and a pingpong table if you feel like a little friendly competition.This home has been an oasis for myself and friends for almost 8 years now and can be yours as well.

About Erick Russ

I myself am a frequent traveler. I split my time between Portland OR and Asheville. Both cities offer an abundance of the things I love. Mountains for hiking & biking, great music, a world class food scene, award winning craft breweries, and a population of open minded individuals.

Erick Russ purchased this house in 2008

Why Erick Russ chose Smoky Mountains

I had been coming to Asheville for years before I moved there in 2005. I bought this house because all the amenities of the city are minutes away yet my home makes me feel like I have the privacy necessary to calm my busy mind.

Attended a wedding in Leicester. Fairly convenient to the venue. Everything was clean and neat. Kitchen well equipped though we only used it for a quick breakfast each day. Only thing we didn't have was Netflix, but we really weren't there most of the time.

Absolutely loved our stay !!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Great home and location !! Home is conveniently located far enough away from everything to enjoy our peace and quiet yet close enough to town to enjoy all the shops and restaurants. Home was large enough to comfortably accommodate 4 adults with a couple dogs, the large backyard with gated deck made it simple for us to entertain our dogs!! We really appreciated the fact the homeowner was quick to respond to our inquires about our stay but left us alone to enjoy our vacation. I would highly recommend this vacation rental to friends and family!!

Nice but needed to be restocked prior to our visit.

  • 3 of 5

The cabin was a great location and nice. There was no extra toilet paper in the house and with 7 men we ran out our first day. There was no propane for the outdoor fireplace. The bed in the master bedroom was unmade. There appeared to be dirty towels and sheets in the laundry room that we cleaned. We tried to call and email the man renting the cabin to us and his voicemail was full and we couldn't leave a message. He also never answered our email.

Owner's Response: Wesley I'm so sorry. There was a scheduling error with my cleaning service. They are usually so on point and apologize as well. I will obviously refund the cleaning fee for your troubles and thanks for bringing this to my attention. Erick

Nice and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

We had a nice weekend with friends at the house. Short drive to downtown and property is located at the end of a road, so very quiet and peaceful. House had everything as described and we would come back on our next trip.

Ideal Vacation Location to Share With Family

  • 5 of 5

The beds were very comfortable, everything was set up perfectly for our visit. I arrived before my family and was able to take a city bus for only a $1 from the airport and walk only a short distance to the house.This is a very quiet location, but very close to major roads so you can get anywhere you would like to go quickly. The back deck is an ideal place to hang out and enjoy the natural surroundings. The kitchen is of a great size, open.... and is nicely setup with anything you might need. I hope on a future visit this home will be available again.
