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 Smart 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 Smart 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 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 Smart 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.

Check in time is 4pm

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!

Great place, Great Stay! (*Driveway)

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay with Troy L. The house was everything it was said to be. It is obvious the owners take great care to keep the property ship shape and to address any foreseeable issues before they arrive. They called the first morning to make sure we were settled in and were on-the-ready to address any need as quickly as possible. We had no needs. A reference book is up to date with instructions on everything from the AC/heat to the hot tub, which eliminated any head scratching regarding their use. This is definitely a five star place!

* Driveway - A lot of people mention the driveway. Yes, it was pretty steep and had one sharp curve. However, it is paved and, like the house, very well maintained. It was neither muddy or bumpy. We saw ahead of time that our weekend weather would be relatively dry and warm with zero chance of snow or ice. Based on that we drove a Nissan Versa 4 cylinder front wheel drive four door car. We did not have any problem at all. We made several outings. After the first drive up, I was 100% comfortable even after a little rain left the driveway wet. Had there been snow or ice we would have simply brought a different vehicle. Just bring the proper car for the weather (or possible weather) and the driveway is fine.

Great retreat

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect. Beautifully decorated, everything you need on hand, and gorgeous views. Easily accommodated six adults. The house was immaculate. The beds were comfortable and made with the most amazing sheets. Coffee, sugar, and creamer were on hand for the morning. The owner was available if we needed her, and she called to check on us on the first morning. The house is located several minutes out of town so it certainly has a "get away" feel. The area is close to many attractions and things to do. We drove into Asheville for an afternoon and into downtown Hendersonville one night to watch a football game at the Dugout. We enjoyed breakfast at the Dixie Diner one morning. I would recommend this property to a friend or family member. Heed the 4 wheel drive warning regarding the driveway in case of winter weather. Overall, a great house and great VRBO experience! We hope to stay here again.

Home away from home.

  • 4 of 5

We decided to do a parents holiday weekend getaway and picked Mountain Vista Retreat based on the views and accommodations. The home is absolutely fantastic, from the cozy fireplace, the hot tub with the beautiful view, to the the beds with the most comfortable sheets you will ever sleep on. We all had a great time and can't wait to return. Thanks again Suzanne.

Very nice, well supplied with essentials

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our 4 days because there was nothing the owners left to be desired. A generous supply of essentials was on hand and the house was spotless and the view was incredible. We would return. George & Donna
