This property has been in our family for over 130 years. On October 30, 1999, we (Katherine, Gary and Roberta - your hosts) began remodeling our childhood home. A lot of time and love has gone into making our house a “home away from home” for visitors. We hope you enjoy your time with us as much as we have enjoyed the life experiences we have shared here. We also hope that you will be able to know the same peace and tranquility that we feel when you come to “Rocky Ridge.”

The majority of our past guests have commented on the close proximity we are to everything in the Asheville area as well as the cleanliness we strive to maintain for our guests.

Rocky Ridge Retreat is perfect for newlyweds, retirees, or the small family on a budget. Spend your vacation enjoying all that Asheville and the surrounding areas have to offer. No matter whether you are coming for the cool summer breeze, the brilliant colors in the fall, to enjoy one of the arts and music festival, skiing, or just to get away for a relaxing weekend, you will find Rocky Ridge Retreat close (or within a short driving distance) to wherever you want to be.

A beary comfy cabin in the woods!

VRBO Bear stayed here

Apr 14, 2015

Mrs. Bear and I recently spent a few days among the mountains in Asheville, and we agreed this cabin surrounded by trees was the perfect location. On day one, we drove up to a cute white picket fence lining the driveway, and we were greeted by cute flower gardens leading up to the porch. We were very excited that we would have our own private cabin. As we entered, we were blown away by how spacious a two-bedroom cabin could really be. There’s plenty of room for the whole family to mingle, and the master bedroom just seems to go on and on as you enter the sitting area and turn the corner. Once we got settled in, we decided to check out the property. There’s a neat old barn that’s fun to explore, and lots of open space to stretch out my legs. The wrap-around porch has plenty of seating and a nice, big grill if you want to spend some time there. Unfortunately, we had a bit of rain, so we spent a lot of time inside. Thankfully, the gravel walkway made sure the mud stayed out of the house and out of the car. Everything about the place was convenient and comfortable: on-site laundry, a big, spacious Jacuzzi tub, plenty of towels for the whole family, and easy access to most of Asheville’s attractions. A lot of Asheville’s highways can be winding and confusing, but getting to this vacation rental couldn’t have been easier. One exit and one turn got us to the front door without much effort. We had such a great experience, and we can’t wait to get back to this comfy cabin in the woods!

Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

Weekend gathering for grand parents, children and grand kids.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed three nights, six of us. The weather was cold and we even had snow, but the house was warm, cosy and well equipped. The children investigated the big yard; we had lunch picnic on the porch. We baked cookies and cooked meals, and the house had everything we needed.

The location is great, just off interstate 40 , then 26. There are stores close by, but the house is hidden and feels private. Everything is very clean: great showers and jacuzzi, lots of warm bedding.

We like to return and recommend it warmly.

We have stayed in many homes and condos on our travels and this one is at the top of the list. What a nice stay. The house was cozy, warm, clean and extremely well furnished. We were surprised at all that was provided. Thanks for a nice Christmas.

Pleasant stay, quiet surroundings

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Asheville and this house is a short drive from downtown and great to have grocery and shopping outlet nearby. The beds were very comfortable, and it is stocked with all essentials.

Very clean, great location, a few issues

  • 3 of 5

The house is very clean, well appointed (lots of clean towels/kitchen equipment) and very nice deck/yard. Plenty of room to enjoy a get away. There are three issues with the home. The owners have two "live" cameras in the house and that is really quite odd. I would not mind a camera at the front door pointing outside but inside the house is a bit off putting. Second - the master bedroom does not have a door to the commode. The Jacuzzi is in the bedroom (so there is no shower for that bedroom). Lastly, as another reviewer commented, the house that you pass to enter the driveway is a mess. Lots of trash on the front porch and junk in the yard. As the owners said they cannot do anything about this home but I think renters should be aware that they have to drive past this in order to get onto the rental property.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I apologize for anything you felt was not adequate or to your satisfaction. As to the cameras, they are only active in the event of the alarm being triggered. They were never intended to "spy" on anyone, but rather for protection. In reference to the neighbors junk, they are handicapped. I have spoken with them on numerous occasions and even offered to help them. They refused. I agree it is a nuisance, however I hope the fact that you can not see their mess once on the property/house makes it somewhat better. We are continually working to rectify this situation. In conclusion, we thank you for staying with us and providing us with feedback.
