What makes this House unique

Lowe's, Home Depot, Ingels, BiLo, Subway, Bojangels, Arby's, Cracker Barrell, Burger King, McDonald's, BP, DIRECTIONS TO DOWNTOWN, THE BILTMORE ESTATE AND BILTMORE VILLAGE Visiting specifically Downtown can be accomplish by 2 similar routes: 1) Smokey Park Hwy/Patton Ave is virtually a straight shot right into downtown. Travel time 10 to 15 minutes. 2) I-40E to 240E to Patton Av. This route is slightly longer than the route above, although a higher rate of speed can be obtained. This route should never take more than 15 to 20 minutes. The Biltmore Estate 11.5 miles (24 min)/ Biltmore Village 8.4 miles (13min) 1) Google will probably take you down I-40 to Hendersonville Rd. This route can vary by 10 minutes. 13-20 minutes directly into Biltmore Village from our property. 2) Visiting The Biltmore Estate can be time consuming depending on the volume the Estate is receiving throughout the year. Again, arriving into Biltmore Village is 13 to 20 min, although getting from the front gate of The Biltmore Estate to the front of The Biltmore House can vary a great deal. I worked at The Biltmore Estate for six years. Some days getting to the front door of the Biltmore House from the front gate took 15 minutes and other days it took 35+ minutes. So from our property to the actual Biltmore House could take anywhere from 24 minutes to 60minutes depending on the season. 3) I-40E to 240E to Amboy Rd to (RTurn) on Meadow Rd to (RTurn) on Biltmore Av. Biltmore Village and the entrance to the Estate are just down on the right not even a quarter of a mile. This is the most direct route to Biltmore Village and The Biltmore Estate. 15 -20 minutes. Keep in mind Asheville is a tourist town. There is traffic during various times of the day. If you are traveling downtown during rush hour (morning or night) add perhaps 12 to 18 minutes.

Our experience was great! Three couples stayed and there was plenty of space for us. It was clean upon arrival and the check out process was easy. Quick 15 minute Uber ride to downtown. Shane was responsive and a great communicator. Excellent stay!
We enjoyed the hot tub on the cool nights. House had everything we needed.
House was nice and not difficult to find. Pool was large and clean, hot tub was kind of weird. Property manager was a little condescending but overall fairly helpful.
Well, well Gaye. I never would have imagined this from you ....WINK WINK. I knew something wouldn't be "right" the moment I spoke to you. I waited patiently for your 4 stars and absurd comments. As I mention on the well letter I send out to all guests....If your stay isn't absolutely PERFECT I want to know IMMEDIATELY! Not after! "Hot tub was weird"??? Never heard of such in the 4 years of renting the house. Property Manager (OWNER) was "condescending". My heavens. :) Take care!
A nice break!
The house, pool and hot tub were a welcome embrace and kept us cool and relaxed during our stay.
Great location and pool
We absolutely loved our stay at this charming home and especially enjoyed the pool being right outside. Home was well equipped with everything we needed and very clean. Would love to stay there again!
Nice house, neighborhood was meh
The house itself was nice - very very clean. Only negative was that we couldn’t open the windows because many of them were broken. The neighborhood was
If there is a broken window it's news to me. Not sure why this wasn't mentioned while the guest was at house. In regards to not being able to open the windows. We have chosen to not allow the windows to open due to past guests ruining the cranks on the windows. Also guests were getting the cranks stuck and in the middle of the night weren't able to close them thus putting my house keeper in a bind. Lastly folks enjoy leaving the air on and off while opening and closing the windows. It's just not cost effective.
