About the property


This brand new listing offers a charming, 1,100 sq. ft. single family home, with deck overlooking a large pond. It is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, split plan, completely renovated with new bathrooms, bedrooms, flooring, cabinets, appliances and furniture.

It has Mountain Views and is close to everything - whether you're a foodie, beer lover, antique collector or outdoor enthusiast, our home is centrally located for you to enjoy everything the area has to offer. Downtown Asheville and the Biltmore House/Estate are less than 6 miles away. The Blue Ridge Parkway is 4 miles away with spectacular views and hundreds of beautiful hiking trails. After touring our wonderful city, relax and enjoy a private and peaceful setting on the deck, which overlooks our pond and feed the koi fish. (THERE IS NO FISHING ALLOWED).

This property is perfect for families, couples or anyone who wants a peaceful, natural, mountain experience while being close to everything at the same time. While drinking your morning coffee, watch hawks, blue herons, and many other birds enjoying the pond each morning.

We welcome your pets, with owner's PRIOR approval, and an additional pet cleaning fee. The charge for the first dog is $75, and a second dog would cost an additional $25, for a total of $100. A third dog may be considered if approved by the owner and further charges would apply. The fenced side yard and gated deck are ideal for pets, and the wooded property line gives you the feeling of country living. The laundry room door opens to the fenced yard, so managing your dogs is easy. As we have worked hard to create a peaceful setting, it is not suitable for loud or late night partying or large gatherings.

The WIFI is high speed cable. With the exception of seven stairs to the deck and front door all living areas are on one floor and easy to navigate. Although we are pet friendly, the rental is thoroughly cleaned and sanitized after each guest's visit.

If you are planning a family reunion, we have an additional rental on the other side of the pond which sleeps four (VRBO property #430071).

About Bob Spear

We fell in love with Asheville and the mountains, and this beautiful property. The large pond had so much wildlife that we couldn't resist. We are from the Midwest and the mountains here are stunning.

Why Bob Spear chose Smoky Mountains

We have been coming to Asheville for several years and decided this property was perfect for us. We bought this land a few years ago due to its private and natural setting.

What makes this house unique

This wooded property, with the large pond and two lighted fountains, is what is unique to this area. It is a wonderful place to relax, whether on the front deck overlooking the pond or building a campfire in the fire pit and fixing s'mores. Your private deck is a perfect location to have coffee and breakfast in the morning while listening to singing birds. At any one time during warm weather we have ducks, herons and other birds. There are koi fish in the pond who like to be fed. A gas grill is provided for your bar-b-q needs. The home's interior has been completely renovated. Also, you are close to everything, but still have this private setting. We are just a few minutes from downtown Asheville and the Blue Ridge Parkway. It's a great place to relax after a long day of sightseeing.

We loved everything about the home. It was clean and had everything we needed for our stay. The pond and fish were a favorite for us. We will definitely be back as well as encouraging our friends and family to visit as well.

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house was as neat, clean and well stocked as you could ask for. One of the best parts of our trip was sitting on the porch with a glass of wine and our dogs at the end of the day.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay at this lovely place, but it will not be our last. This vaca rental is not far from anything.... It has everything we needed to make our stay stress-free; more space than we expected, wonderful fenced in yard for the dog, and the koi and catfish in the pond kept our 3 year old grandson mesmerized for hours!

This rental is right up the road from an Ingles (grocery store), and not far from the Mall area of Asheville, but it is up a lovely graved road. It was very quiet. We would recommend this rental for it's cleanliness, location, and general presentation.

I don't believe anyone, or small group of people renting this property would be disappointed. Don't feel like cooking? Pomodoros Greek and Italian is not far from Ingles... does take out.

Fox Den good with dogs

  • 4 of 5

The house was perfect for us with our little dogs, except very small dogs like my chi-chi mix can escape through the pickets on the deck. I liked the bedrooms on either side of the living area with a bathroom on each end of the house. The kitchen was well furnished and comfortable for watching TV. I liked having a fan in the master bedroom because I had to leave the windows open and fans on to clear out the fumes from Glade Air Fresheners that had been removed at my request. I appreciate that the owners asked cleaning service to only use vinegar and water for cleaning as I get sick from use of Clorox and harsh chemical cleaners. This is a good place for family and those with pets.
