About the property

5 bedroom, 4.5 bath (sleeps 12) master-built home with exquisite custom touches!

Showcase Estate with High-End Amenities! Storybrooke Place offers guests two separate homes, with a total of five bedrooms, and a beautifully landscaped estate featuring custom stone patios, a raised fire pit, and a private hot tub, among many more delightful amenities awaiting your discovery.

The gourmet cook’s kitchen features a superior performance Viking gas range equipped with a griddle that's perfect for making morning pancakes. Cozy up by a stacked stone hearth - there's a wood-burning fireplace and two wood stoves - and watch movies with the best in media technology, including a SmartTV and SONOS Wireless HiFi multi-room music system (with a portable tablet control center) in the lower level entertainment area.

Take advantage of the mountain weather and enjoy the kitchen patio's Big Green Egg charcoal grill and the custom-built outdoor dining area. At the end of the day, take a long soak in the bubbling hot tub, or try out the master bath's deep soak tub.

The Cottage sits adjacent to the main home and features a fully-equipped kitchen, a home office area, and a private full bath and bedroom.

Storybrooke Place feels like a private country retreat, but is only moments from popular area attractions such as the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Biltmore Estate. This vacation rental is located in Arden and is approximately 20 minutes to downtown Asheville.

A charmingly perfect slice of Asheville

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed this beautiful and charming home. It was perfection for so many reasons but most importantly was a comfortable and easy setting to share time together. It’s equipped with everything you could need and the quality of the appliances, workmanship, and decor was quite impressive. We plan to return again!

Absolutely wonderful!

I rented Storybook Place for my husband's 40th birthday and was blown away by the property. The house was gorgeous and so thoughtfully designed! It had more than most rentals I have rented, well stocked, I truly felt like someone had set up the kitchen just for me! We where able to host our friends so comfortably with all of the space and the extra cabin. We even had a bit of a travel blip and everyone at Carolina Mornings was so incredibly helpful and supportive. The deposit was mailed back in full in a timely manner, with out worry. My only disappointment was we booked in February and could not enjoy the amazing outdoor dining area but makes a fantastic reason to go back when it's warmer! The worst part was having to leave, I wanted to stay forever! HANDS DOWN BEST RENTAL EVER!

Easy access to Biltmore Estate, Dupont State Forest (where the Hunger Games were filmed), Downtown Asheville, South Asheville, Biltmore Park, and the Blue Ridge Parkway. While in a neighborhood setting, Storybrooke Place is tucked away in a 'Cathedral of Trees' that provide privacy in the summer, but let through mountain views in the winter. The perfect place to discover Western North Carolina during the day, and then escape back to pampered relaxation at night.
