Asheville at its best

  • 5 of 5

We searched for months to find the right house and the right area to enjoy Asheville and all I can say is we found it. Thank you Rick and Barclay for being the best hosts and always being there if we had a question and the small town of Woodfin was perfect for us! $7 uber ride to downtown, hot tub waiting for us when we got back, plenty of room and a beautiful house. We lived the dream while we stayed in your home and I hope we can do it again next summer! Thank you.

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful stay here over Thanksgiving. This house is close to downtown and all major Asheville attractions and has a lovely fenced backyard, perfect for my sons and my brother's terrier to play. The neighborhood is quiet and the owner was very responsive to questions about the property-even when I could not figure out how to use the fireplace which was obvious after he patiently explained it to me. The kitchen is well stocked and check in was a breeze. All except one of the bedrooms is on the main level which made it nice for my 85 year-old great aunt and there was plenty of room for everyone. The home is clean and well maintained and I would recommend this property without hesitation.

Spent Christmas here and it was wonderful. The kitchen was very well equipped for cooking and baking. We took the bus into Asheville and didn't have to deal with parking. The owner was incredibly nice and wanted everything about our stay to be perfect. Hoping to come back here again and enjoy the wonderful back yard. Thank you Rick!

The home was lovely. Beautifully decorated with a well stocked kitchen. We had a wonderful thanksgiving including a fully cooked meal at the home with our family from nearby areas joining us. The crowning touch was the beautiful snow on thanksgiving morning. Thanks for making our holiday a special time!

Home Away From Home

We would like to thank Rick and Barcley for helping make our stay in Asheville a very comfortable one. Their home comes well equiped with everything you could need , there is is plenty of room to spread out in. The home is tastefully furnished and we found the bed in the master very comfortable. We looked forward to coming "home "after our busy days in Asheville, a soak in the hot tub on a cool starry night was greatly enjoyed .Our dogs and ourselves enjoyed the easy access to their private run and the dogs loved coming home to their own space instead of a cramped hotel room, altho they never ventured past the kitchen except to run downstairs to get into the truck.The location of the home made it an easy drive into downtown Asheville , also found grocery and liquor stores just a short drive down the road. We thoroughly enjoyed our supper at Stoney Knob , reccomended to us by the owners, who were more than helpful and very prompt at answering any questions we may have had.We would definitely reccomend a stay at Rick and Barcley's Asheville home .
