PERFECT HOME FOR LARGE FAMILY GATHERING

  • 5 of 5

RETURNING TO A RESORT I KNOW WELL AFTER HAVING A SECOND HOME THERE FOR 30 YEARS, THE FAMILY GATHERING OF 15 ADULTS, A 3 MONTH OLD, AND A THREE YEAR OLD WAS PERFECT IN EVERY WAY.

THE HOME WAS JUST WONDERFUL WITH EVERYTHING NEEDED FOR SUCH A LARGE GROUP AND PLENTY OF SPACE FOR EVERY NEED. THE LOCATION WAS IDEAL FOR ENJOYING THE SCENIC BEAUTY OF LEAF SEASON IN THE MOUNTAINS!!

THE HIGHLIGHT OF THE WEEK WAS EVERYONE FOLLOWING A FOURSOME OF OUR GROUP ALL 18 HOLES ON A GREAT FALL DAY AROUND A REAL MOUNTAIN LAYOUT I HAVE ENJOYED MANY TIMES OVER THE YEARS. THE CELEBRATION THAT FOLLOWED IN THE CLUBHOUSE OF THE COUNTRY CLUB WILL BE REMEMBERED BY ALL.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE HOME AND KNOW YOU WILL BE PLEASED!!!

Absolutely amazing

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here. It was easily large enough for 12+ People. I brought my whole family up from Florida to escape hurricane Irma and we made a very memorable vacation out of it. This house is gorgeous and has the most stunning views. It's only about 30 minutes to Asheville and not too much farther to Looking glass falls. The owner is very caring and accommodating. I highly recommend this place whether you're seeking a vacation or refuge like us.

Perfect Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Our family was fortunate to be able to gather for a week in this beautiful location. We were 9 adults, 3 children and 2 dogs from 4 different states! The "Best View on the Mountain" was just as advertised. Unbelievable. We spent many hours on the spacious deck talking, reading, playing games and enjoying some wine. The kids (and adults) swam, played tennis and went horseback riding. The kitchen was well equipped and perfect for cooking for our large group (we used the outside grilll a lot). We loved that we were all able to sit down together at the large table, under the beautiful window overlooking the mountains. There were plenty of living areas to spread out in, so we never felt crowded. All in all we had a wonderful week and will probably "reconvene" here in a couple of years. Many thanks to the owner, who was easy to work with!

Very large house with great parking!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a family wedding and had a very large group of people visiting the house and staying overnight. The house is very large and can accommodate large groups of people very easily. There is ample room for parking which is not really the norm for the area. The owner is extremely responsive addressing any concerns. I would definitely rent this house again if the occasion ever arises.

Wonderful

  • 4 of 5

Truly, as advertised, a very beautiful view from the back deck of this spacious house which is privately located at the end of the road. We spent a four day family weekend with nine adults and three children. On Sunday we spent the day at the house along with four additional visitors. The house is very large and we never felt cramped or overcrowded. There are two large dining tables and ample seating. We took advantage of the foosball table, game table, many televisions and the outdoor grille. Carol was quick to respond to text messages (one concerning a dying battery in a smoke detector and the other about a change in policy concerning the trash). The house was clean and well decorated, but child friendly. The next time we have reason to visit the area we will defiantly consider the Pisgah House.

Outdoor activities are plentiful, close to The Pisgah House. Walk the Appalachian Trail, hike to the top of Bald Mountain, or just simply relax on the large deck with "The best view on the mountain."

Several adventure activities are available too. Ziplining, white water rafting and horseback riding are just a couple of the cool things to do while staying at The Pisgah House. If you and your guests enjoy wildlife, take a half day trip to check out the WNC Nature Center, visit Grandfather Mountain to see black bears and cougars from a safe distance or Chimney Rock State Park for birding.

Sliding Rock, a 60 ft. naturally occurring water slide, zips you down into a swimming hole about eight ft. deep. This is always a favorite for parents and children alike. Located in The Pisgah National Forest, it is only a 40 minute drive from The Pisgah House.
