Overview

About the property

14 Acre Estate with 7 bedrooms/ 5.5 bath

Invite your guests to escape to Grace House, where turn-of-the-century history and modern conveniences come together to create an amazing setting for group getaways. One of the oldest estates in Mars Hill, the property includes a grand Main House along with an adjoining, newer home, The Cottage. Grace House comfortably accommodates large groups for friendly get-togethers, family reunions, and corporate or church retreats.

Located less than a mile from Mars Hill town center, the Grace House estate stretches over 14 acres of forest and rolling pasture. Your group will love the ample opportunities for adventure such as a group picnic area, horseshoe pits, and a walking trail to the property's ridgeline vista where the fire pit claims an incredible view of distant mountain peaks.

The Main House, built in 1917 and once home to a family of 15 children*, embodies old-fashioned charm with classic covered porches, a front parlor sitting area, and eight gas-burning fireplaces. Gather together for home-cooked meals in the traditional dining room, featuring original beadboard walls and a grandfather clock that stands at least six feet tall. The sun room and fully-equipped kitchen are bright and cheery spaces with pastoral views from the back of the house.

You and your guests will find rest and relaxation in the Main House's five bedrooms, each outfitted with comfortable furnishings and a flat screen TV. The main floor master suite features two fireplaces and a private living room with a small bar area and mini-fridge, perfect for preparing morning coffee or an afternoon snack. A second master suite, located on the upper level, also has two fireplaces and offers access to a covered porch with great views of the property. If you enjoy a deep soak in a hot bath, you'll love the upper level guest room that features an attached bath with an antique clawfoot tub.

The Cottage, which sits adjacent to the Main House, provides additional space to spread out, ideal for guests who need a quiet spot or serving as an in-law suite during family gatherings. This two-bedroom home offers a cozy living area and a well-equipped kitchenette, a real bonus for large groups who need a second full-sized refrigerator. The Cottage is handicap assisted with accessible attributes including a single-level floor plan, ramps on the front and back entrances, wide entrance doors, and grab bars in one of the baths. The vibrant back deck overlooks the Grace House courtyard, which is fenced-in and has a patio with an above-ground fire pit.

Whether it's an afternoon spent chatting on the covered front porch or a busy weekend of entertaining, you'll create your own timeless traditions at Grace House, the perfect place for reconnecting with friends and loved ones.

Location Details

Home to Mars Hill University, the oldest college in Western North Carolina, Mars Hill is known for its thriving arts community and abundance of outdoor activities in the area, including mountain biking at nearby Bailey Mountain, skiing at Wolf Laurel, hiking the Appalachian Trail, and exploring scenic points along the Blue Ridge Parkway. This Asheville vacation rental is located in Mars Hill and is approximately 22 minutes to downtown Asheville.

Important Property Notes

• The Barn, a third residence on the Grace House property, will become available for guest use in Summer 2017. The Barn features two bedrooms, a fully-equipped kitchen, and a hot tub.

• Grace House is located off of a state highway, and while it is set back from the road, traffic noise is audible during peak travel times.

• The owners of Grace House live on the property in a separate residence. They are very respectful of guest privacy.

Mountain Discovery Pass

Each reservation comes complete with our exclusive Mountain Discovery Pass, which now includes a Biltmore Estate pass -- in addition to seasonal activities such as ziplining, whitewater rafting, and skiing! This extremely valuable pass is a special gift from Carolina Mornings to our guests, and is not available anywhere else. Enjoy Asheville the way it is meant to be enjoyed, and let us spoil you with activities and the best customer service in Asheville!
