Would Not Suggest This Property

  • 1 of 5

Tried contacting the property owner several times within 2 weeks prior to arriving in regards to questions I had. Every single call went to voicemail, I left voicemails and never received a call back. When we arrived, there were hundreds of lady bugs on the walls, floor, ceiling, and inside the windows of the kitchen and dining area. It was disgusting. I called the owner and this is the one time I actually received an answer. She proceeded to tell me that it was a normal thing this time of year to have ladybugs. I understand that, but this was as if the lady bugs had the time to infest the kitchen. The house itself wasn’t very clean, with stains on the couch and thick amounts of dust in different places. It was clear the house had not been upkeeped or even checked on prior to our arrival. Also, we noticed the WEIRDEST thing. In one of the bedrooms, someone had taken the time to take apart the blinds and double each row up so that in every other slot where a blind should be, it was empty. There was no possible way to close them so that no one could see inside. We had to take towels and hang them up over the window to have privacy.

Nice house overlooking rolling hills

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and updated. It has all the necessary things to help you feel like your at home, while on vacation. The location is about 20 min from d’town ASHVILLE and 20 min from hiking the App. Trail. I would highly recommend this house for a family retreat.

Spacious and beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

We rented this house while visiting my brother and his family. The house was perfect for our family of 6. We even had one bedroom to spare. The view of the rolling foothills and mountains off in the distance from the back deck was beautiful. There was enough seating for 14 people off of the two dining tables alone which was great for having my brother and his family over for dinner. The only thing that we saw that needed improving was that some of the light fixtures were missing their covers...but that was strickly cosmetic and clearly in the process of being fixed. We would love to rent this house again when visiting in the future!

Spacious home, nice quiet location

  • 4 of 5

The good: The house is pretty big, We had 3 couples with some kids, and the space was a good size for our group. Nice living area, decent sized kitchen, and 2 separate dining areas.

The house was well stocked with toilet paper, paper towels, Dish soap, dishwasher detergent, laundry soap, dishes, pots and pans, dishes and utensils, etc. It was really nice to arrive to such a well stocked house.

The house is only about 5 minutes from the local grocery store, and about 30 minutes to Asheville. Great location.

The not as good: The stairway to get to the second floor is quite creeky when you walk on it. That made things difficult when we had a child napping upstairs, or if someone needed to go up or down the stairs during the night.

Most of the beds were apparently comfortable. However, the one queen bed that my wife and I slept in was very hard.

As stated in some other reviews, the garage is only large enough for one vehicle.

The house had one key to access it, and it was stated that there would be a garage door opener remote as well. However, upon arrival there was no garage door remote in the house. So anytime we wanted to park in the one side of the garage large enough for a car, we had to go in through the front door, down into the basement, and open the garage there with the button on the wall.

We would probably stay here again if we were in the area. It had the issues mentioned above, but the price for what you get was a really good value in my opinion.
