About Amy Barclay
I have been coming to Montreat my entire life and my husband and I got married here. It's our favorite place on earth. We recently purchased this home and it has been newly decorated and furnished and has a brand new kitchen, bathroom and flooring!
Amy Barclay purchased this House in 2014
Why Amy Barclay chose Montreat
We love this property first because of its proximity to everything in Montreat. It is directly across the street from the park, the tennis courts, the playground and the creek. We also love being able to sit on the decks and look at the view of the mountains.

Relaxing mountain getaway, close enough for day trip into Asheville
We rented the house for my wife's birthday and it was perfect for a group of 6. The house was well located in the Montreat community and about 20-minute drive from Asheville (Lyft picked up from house). The house was clean and as described when we arrived. Recommend for anyone interested in a relaxing weekend in the mountains and/or trying to go into Asheville for the day.
Please wish your wife Happy Birthday! So happy y'all had a great weekend. Come again!
Great Place to Stay!
The location of the house was perfect for us. The house was warm and inviting. Would definitely stay here again. Was there anything we did not like? No. However, if you are not able to or not good at navigating stairs, then I would look for another place. The stairs were fine for us, and we like everything about the house. Amy stayed in touch before and after our stay. If this house is one of your considerations, then I recommend you choose it.
So happy y’all enjoyed the house and had such a nice time. Come again soon!
our family really enjoyed the location and easy access to Black Mountain and Asheville. The home was very neat and clean. Grand kids loved the park!! We would love to rent again in the future.
We would love for you to come back too !
We really enjoyed our weekend in this house. It is beautiful with all the decks and windows you do feel like you are in a tree house. Loved the copper sinks in bathroom and wood look tiles. Everything is nicely updated but still has the cottage feel. Montreat is such a beautiful place to stay when visiting the Asheville area.
Thank you soooo much. So happy you had such a great time.
Sweet location and adorable treehouse! Kids loved it too!
We had a great time and only wished we had more time to hang out in this awesome cottage! Fun, octagonal house feels like a treehouse right in the heart of wonderful Montreat. Next time we are staying longer, bringing our blankets, and planning on more hangout time on the decks!
I'm thrilled y'all enjoyed the house. When you visit again, each bedroom has blankets in the bedroom closets and there are more in the blanket chest in the Master bedroom. There are also throw blankets in the coffee table/trunk in the den.
Thank you so much!
Very cute but lacking in a few necessities
This was a cute little vacation home and it easily accommodated our needs for the few days that we were visiting my daughter at Montreat College. It was in very close proximity to the school which is exactly what I was looking for. The climate remained comfortable throughout our stay and the home had updated digital thermostats. The kitchen only had 4 coffee cups which was odd for a home that accommodates 8 people. At one time we had guests and came up a little short but we managed. I didn't really like the lack of amenities such as toilet paper and paper towels. Immediately upon our arrival I had to rush out and buy those necessities as there was very little of those things in the home at the time of our arrival. I also failed to observe the note on the email that let me know that sheets and towels are not provided at this residence in our rental fees and forgot to bring those but we borrowed what we needed from my daughter's dorm room less the King bed. If I had packed those things from home then this would have been the perfect spot to visit our daughter. If you are looking for strictly a vacation spot in the mountains, you should be forewarned that your view is of the tennis courts instead of nature. Overall this residence met our needs and we enjoyed it.
I have to admit I am confused by your review after you sounded so grateful on the phone. We stated on VRBO and in our welcome letter you were sent a week prior to your rental that we do not provide linens but you can rent them for your stay. This is pretty standard in Montreat. When you called me upon your arrival, you admitted you never read any of the information I had sent you nor the details on our VRBO site. Regardless, we did not want this to hinder your vacation so we offered to get you a full set of linens for all of the beds but you said you only needed King sheets. So we made sure we were able to get you King sheets and we did not charge you. We paid the maid service ourselves to clean the sheets and towels you used.
Detailed house information is on VRBO including pictures. The view from the deck is of trees, the tennis courts and the mountain behind it. One of the things our renters love is the close proximity to everything in Montreat including the park, creek and lake. For a larger view, there are a couple Montreat homes that are available to rent that are further away from the center of Montreat and higher on a mountain.
I wish you had called me about the coffee mugs. There are 7 in the kitchen cabinet and 3 on the cabinet shelf. Unfortunately we can not provide renters with everything they need but we do provide more than most rentals including starter toilet paper, paper towels, plenty of trash bags, recycling bags, dish soap, dish detergent, ziplocks, wraps and condiments.
I'm not sure how we could have made your stay better but hope you enjoyed your time in Montreat.
20 minutes to downtown Asheville, the Biltmore House and Blue Ridge Parkway.
