About Charlie Ball

Troy Ball and her husband Charlie Ball moved to the area in 2003 and developed Whisper Mountain. They founded Asheville Distilling Company in 2010.

Charlie Ball purchased this house in 2012

Why Charlie Ball chose Smoky Mountains

Whisper Mountain is one of the most beautiful properties that they found, with bold creeks, peace and quiet. It is a true escape

What makes this house unique

We love hiking the endless trail system at Whisper Mountain. Much of it follows Whisper Creek. We spend alot of time on the porches of this home,.

Absolutely PERFECT

  • 5 of 5

This house is stunning! We could not have asked for a better experience. The hosts were very responsive before we even got there and once we were there everything was perfect. We will definitely stay here again.... Without a doubt. If you're looking for stunning views, a beautiful and spacious house, and everything you could possibly need for the perfect mountain vacation you can stop looking... You've found it.

Stop looking at the rentals sights and wondering what house to rent - simply rent this one. You will not be disappointed. It was spectacular. The views were breathtaking and when the sun comes up over the mountains and the mist is in the valley, words can't describe the view. At night the stars were as bright as can be and during our two night stay, we saw several shooting stars. Now let's talk about the house - absolutely perfect. The clever layout and comfortable furniture made for a very peaceful stay. I have already begun to plan our next trip back.

Surpassed expectations

  • 5 of 5

The photos on the website don't do this property justice, not by a long shot. We wanted privacy and to feel we had escaped to the mountains. Nestled among tall trees, and with a breathtaking view of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the house offers total privacy, is spotless, and beautifully appointed. Our three adult couples each had their own suite with bedroom and full bathroom. Everyone got much needed rest and relaxation in the open floor plan that allowed for quiet conversing, browsing on the internet, playing group games, or interacting with the foodies while meals were prepared. We were able to turn out some delicious cuisine in the modern, well equipped kitchen.The deck is huge and has several very comfortable seating options including a large table. Sitting quietly, the only outside sounds are songbirds, assorted small wildlife, and the wind in the trees. At night we stepped out from under cover to take in a stargazing experience that is a rare delight for city dwellers. We did enjoy some of the local hiking, river rafting, and breweries that the Asheville area is known for. The well stocked grocery store and nicer restaurants are 20-30 minutes away. The property owners were easy to work with and contact by internet and phone. They provided a simple rental agreement and accepted a check by mail for the deposit and rent. The home is located in a luxury mountain development. Enter through a keypad--controlled gate and then travel up a steep and curving paved road to the house at the top. We got just what we were looking for--a place where we could rest, connect with each other, and have plenty of opportunities for memorable activities.

Beautiful home with gorgeous views

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 days with our teenage children in this beautiful mountain home. Perched near the top of Whisper Mountain, it had absolutely incredible views, especially in the mornings with the mist in the valleys. The house is very accommodating and is very comfortable and inviting. We hope to make it back one day!

We were extremely happy with this home! It is beautiful, inviting, and has many unique features which make you feel instantly at home. We especially love the outdoor seating areas. They enable you to sit comfortably while taking in the awesome views. The location is perfect for a variety of activities...we spent the first day in nearby Asheville, then the next on the Parkway, lunch at Pisgah Inn, and hiking Max Patch. Our entire party is ready to stay here again!!!
