Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Laurel Ridge, Black Mountain, NC, USA:
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! 'Why this property?' - because it's one of the nicest places on earth!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
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 and trim... 11 foot ceilings... their own private entrance... private parking... private patio... washer and dryer... full kitchen, etc. etc. This apartment was designed to give the comfort and service of a fully decked out condominium (it's actually much larger - and way nicer - than most one bedroom condos!)
