About Sue & Jim Cropper
Having traveled extensively ourselves, we've enjoyed (and in some cases not enjoyed!) a wide variety of accommodations. Quality construction and amenities, cleanliness, peace and quiet, the great outdoors and a comfortable feeling of home are what we look for in our travels and we really enjoy offering just that to our guests. Having stayed at some of the finest hotels and B&B's in the world, we know what it takes to make guests feel comfortable, welcome and at ease.
Sue & Jim Cropper purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Sue & Jim Cropper chose Laurel Ridge
True premium quality and location. At 3500' in the Blue Ridge Mountains, in a private gated community, with the 22,000 acres of fully protected watershed forest as our neighbor - one can't find a much nicer place to have it all - and be away from it all at the same time - and still be only 10 minutes from town!
What makes this Apartment unique
We fell in love with our land the moment we saw it! It is very rare to find land at 3500' on a mountainside that allows for one level living and a large, moderately sloped/flat driveway - serviced by Asheville's spectacular quality water. We did all the design work on the home prior to construction. From the initial site work through the design and construction of the home, we applied many years of experience to every detail. Very few rental homes have solid oak doors, trim and cabinetry... 11 foot ceilings... their own private entrance... private parking... private patio... washer and dryer... full kitchen, etc. etc. The apartment was designed to give the comfort and service of a luxury condominium (it's actually much larger - and way nicer - than most one bedroom condos!)

Excellent. Better than the pictures
We really enjoyed our stay. Jim was very welcoming, the rooms were clean. Would definitely come back.
A delightful property
What a lovely property! It's impeccably clean and well appointed, including everything we needed. We appreciated the suggestions for hiking and dining. Jim and Sue are very thoughtful and their experience shows. A real winner!
Fabulous apartment in the woods. You can’t go wrong with this rental
This apartment is in the basement of the owners home and was beautiful, very spacious and so clean. You are just less than 30 minutes from the Biltmore Mansion and about 15 minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway. The owners are wonderful and have a binder with suggestions of things that are must sees while in the area to maximize your experiences and also local restaurants that are worth your time going to. The drive to the property is in the woods up winding roads and we saw a black bear crossing the road on our way to the house (very exciting). Unfortunately for us, we didn’t allow enough time in the area. We’ll have to go back. You can’t go wrong renting this apartment.
Cozy and very clean apartment, beautiful landscaping!
This apartment was immaculately clean, and well stocked with all the essentials (i.e. extra linens and pillows, dishes, cookware, iron and iron board, etc.). Everything was comfortable, the linens and towels were soft and very good quality, and the atmosphere was relaxed and quiet. They have a sheet of very well written instructions and information with everything you need to know, and are both just a phone call away in case you need anything at all. They have a wonderful outside sitting area with beautiful landscaping. You're pretty much on the side of a mountain, so there were no traffic sounds, and the neighborhood is quiet. Jim is very personable and a wonderful host, I am sure Sue is just the same although we did not have a chance to meet her. The only thing we regret is having a very busy weekend and not being able to spend more time there. Highly recommend this apartment and the wonderful couple who own it!
We had an amazing honeymoon in NC. The apartment was secluded, spacious and beautiful.
Beautiful, clean, cozy and quiet!
What a treasure! Made our stay for the Spartan stress free and pleasant. We even got to see bears! Jim and Sue were great host!
