Overview

About the property

Completely renovated 3 bedroom, 3 bath home with great mountain views & 4 acres

Perched alone atop a mountain on 4 private acres sits Mountain Vista Retreat. Surrounded by a sea of native mountain laurel, this completely renovated home boasts 3 bedrooms & 3 baths. The spacious deck located at the back of the house allows for 180° views and an unobstructed sunset view.

The 1st master bedroom in the loft features a king bed, 39 inch flat screen TV, ceiling fan and a private bath. Shutters between the loft and the living area below allow the guests to choose their own degree of privacy. The bath has his & hers sinks and a full sized tub/shower with subway tile surround and a floor of travertine marble. Through the french doors you will have a private veranda with a bistro set perfect for enjoying the sunset views with a champagne toast.

The lower level 2nd master bedroom has a king bed, 48 inch flat screen TV, ceiling fan & a private bath. A door leading outside allows private entry (and exit!) to the back deck and hot tub.This en-suite bath features a walk-in shower tiled with a glass accented carrara style tile, dual vessel sinks, granite counter top and crystal chandeliers for a little added bling.

The bedroom on the main level has 2 extra long twin beds that can be easily converted to a king bed. A sliding door leads to the back deck, hot tub and views, views and views!

The open concept great room combines the kitchen, dining and living areas making it the perfect spot for the family to gather.The kitchen features custom cabinetry and quartz counter top with GE Slate appliances. Dinnerware, glassware, utensils, and pots & pans are provided for your use. Just a quick stop for provisions at one of the nearby grocery stores and you are ready to prepare a gourmet meal or burgers on the charcoal grill. A starter supply of coffee, creamer and sugar are on hand for you along with paper towels, hand towels and a fresh sponge. The large gas fireplace has a beautiful maple mantle cut & polished by a local sawmill. Comfortable, casual furnishings surround this one of a kind art piece with a 55 inch flat screen TV mounted above it. A ceiling fan allows the cool mountain breezes to circulate through this room with its' ceiling soaring to 14'. However, it is the glorious mountain views that are the main focal point of Mountain Vista Retreat. Sliding doors from the living room lead to the 10' x 39' main deck. There is a charcoal grill & an iron table with seating for 6. A chest provides storage for the cushions, allowing you comfortable seating for the nightly show!

Extending out from the main deck is an 8'x16' deck which hosts the 6 person Dr.Wellness jetted hot tub. Whether a romantic getaway or a family reunion, the beautiful sunsets enjoyed from this spot will create lasting memories.

From the rocking chair front porch, which is the perfect place to sip a cup of coffee to greet the sun as it peeks over the tree-tops, to the back deck where you see the sun set behind the mountain tops, Mountain Vista Retreat is surrounded by nature! Towering tulip poplars, maples, pines, and oaks, in addition to the mountain laurels nestled beneath, provide coverage for the birds and wildlife that call this place home.

Conveniently located between Hendersonville and Chimney Rock, Mountain Vista Retreat is 12 miles from Lake Lure, 20 minutes from downtown Hendersonville and 35 minutes from Asheville. The Biltmore Estate, the area's number one attraction is only 35 minutes. Other major attractions close by include DuPont Forest State Park, the Carl Sandburg House, Chimney Rock Park and the Blue Ridge Parkway. There are too many hiking trails and waterfalls to mention them all, along with many farm stands selling fresh locally grown produce (during season). The area apple orchards are open from August through October and several of these are an easy 5-10 minute drive from Mountain Vista Retreat! While the road leading up to the house is paved, because of the steepness of the road we recommend a 4 wheel drive vehicle during winter stays.

Be sure to check out our other two properties, Saluda Vista and Verandah Vista, property ID's 709549 and 949224, and our website. We take pride in providing "the best" for our guests.

About Suzanne and Marty Kelly

Suzanne & Marty met & fell in love while working at an Eco-resort on the island of St.John in the US Virgin Islands. After much deliberation about where to make our permanent home ( and even more on where we shouldn't) we decided on the mountains of North Carolina. We moved here after our island wedding in 2004 and have never regretted our decision.

Suzanne and Marty Kelly purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Suzanne and Marty Kelly chose Smoky Mountains

The house is located in the same sub-division that we now live in and we love life here. Both of us have had previous experience in guest relations, with Marty owning a bed & breakfast, and Suzanne working in hotel registration. We have always desired to enable others to better enjoy the mountains of Western North Carolina, and owning a vacation rental property allows us to do just that.

What makes this cottage unique

This home has million dollar views at an affordable price. The house sits on 4 private acres of beautiful mountaintop, yet is only nine miles away from the interstate, 20minutes from Lake Lure, and a half hour from Asheville.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is such a beautiful cottage with such an amazing view! We all loved staying here and hope to be back soon! Thank you!

Peaceful---Everything you could want for a mountain vacation

  • 5 of 5

Five women friends from five states met at Mountain Vista Retreat. We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful home. The deck is spacious and has wonderful mountain views. We found everything we needed--comfortable beds, modern bathrooms, and a completely stocked kitchen. Thanks Suzanne for making our trip even better than we hoped.

Perfect Honeymoon Location!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a nice getaway for our 10 day honeymoon and landed on staying somewhat local (we're from the Charlotte area). We wanted a place where we could relax, enjoy a beautiful view, and feel comfortable if we just wanted to hang out and relax. This cottage checked all of our boxes! The view was fantastic (sunset view over the mountains), the interior decor was beautiful (think HGTV), and it had a nice kitchen for us for when we wanted do food prep and dine in (good for foodies). You really can't go wrong with this place. The owners are very nice and there is no detail left out! It was the perfect honeymoon!

Spectacular spot! Incredible view & welcoming interior space.

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautifully decorated and complete with lots of amenities, including special hand soaps, face cleaning cloths, and binders full of suggested activities. The private rear deck has a sparkling clean hot tub, grill, substantial dining table and a million dollar view. I would return again in a heartbeat!

I would highly recommend this location!

  • 5 of 5

The house is picture perfect. The amenities are fabulous and the view is forever. Suzanne and Marty go the extra mile to make sure that everything is perfect for your stay. We stayed here for our granddaughter's wedding at Laughing Waters in Gerton. My parents have challenges climbing stairs and this house was perfect for them. Suzanne and Marty, thank you again for your wonderful house. We definitely plan on coming back!
