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 a nearly 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 Hendersonville

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!

Retirement Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to celebrate my retirement. The house was perfect and the view from the back deck is the best we have ever seen. The sunsets were just beautiful and a perfect way to end each day as we had near perfect weather.

The house was clean, comfortable and cozy. The peace and quiet was just what we needed to have a most relaxing week.

We thank you for offering such a wonderful vacation home. We will plan to stay at Mountain Vista Retreat again in the near future.

Thanks again,

Bob & Alice

A retreat indeed!

  • 5 of 5

This house is the perfect retreat: its many amenities make it comfortable and inviting, its location must be seen to be believed, and its proximity to so many places of interest all make it an exceptional place to stay. The owners of the house are very helpful if you have any questions, and we appreciated all that they did for us. It truly is a lovely place, and I hope that, when you stay there, you will enjoy it as much as we did.

beautiful, comfortable home, with top-notch amenities provided. Completely satisfied.

  • 5 of 5

Although this was our first stay at Mountain Vista, it was the third time renting from Suzanne and Marty. We've rented Veranda Vista twice! This trip was a Girl's Get-Away with two of my sisters and a friend. We lounged on the comfy furniture, prepared some great meals it the kitchen (which provided for all our needs) and took in the fantastic views. The bedding and towels are luxurious and there is plenty of storage for our clothing, etc. the house was immaculate, and Suzanne always gives a "welcome" call the morning after arrival to be sure are expectations are met and to see if there is anything we need. The home is close to Lake Lure (we dined at La Strada's), Chinmey Rock and Hendersonville. Lots to do and many great places to eat. We saw a production of Dial "M" for Murder at the Flat Rock Playhouse one evening. Enjoyed the shops in Hendersonville and had a fabulous lunch at Mountain Deli. Even if the weather is crummy, the home is so comfortable and so light with all the windows, that sitting inside at reading, putting together a puzzle and watching a movie make for an enjoyable afternoon. Thank you again for proving us with a great place to decompress. We are looking forward to trying out Saluda Vista in the future, so we will have had the complete Vista Experience!!!

Loved it, again!

  • 5 of 5

Once again, something like the 5th time we've stayed here, we love it! Seems like we spent more time in the hot tub than out of it this time, but everything about the house and property is amazing! The kitchen is well stocked, the TV has Netflix (this house is where we discovered Netflix), the frig has an ice maker, everything we need. Thanks again!
