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 or evening cocktails on the deck, watch hawks, blue herons, and many other birds enjoying the pond each morning.

To make this unit affordable for a single couple, even though it will sleep up to six people, the quoted prices are for two persons. Each additional person, including any age child except for infants, are $9.00 per night, per person.

We welcome your small 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 pre-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. Entry has a security/weather camera.

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.

The house itself was fine. The yard a little on the small side and was a little nervous about surrounding houses on the way to rental property, looked a little ifff. But the house itself was ok.

Owner's Response: Wow....this review is unbelievable and would lead anyone reading it to wonder what "iffy" means. This area is completely safe and there have NEVER been any type of problems. This is Asheville! The "small" yard she described is for our guests' dogs, and not the two children who stayed there and were not included in her reservation or payment. We have fifty-one 5 star reviews in the past two years since being on VRBO and we invite anyone reading this review to please read all of our other reviews and judge for themselves.

Cozy retreat

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying at this cozy retreat. It was very clean and just the right size. A couple more bath towels would have been nice; however I did laundry and we were fine. Thanks.

Owner's Response: We are happy you enjoyed your stay at our property. We do provide extra towels if guests stay longer than three nights; however, we also provide a washer and dryer in the laundry room, along with laundry detergent and fabric sheets. We're glad you could use them. Thanks for staying with us and hope to see you in the future.

Relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a great visit at this lovely home. Very clean, nicely furnished, and well equipped. We brought our dog and loved the large deck overlooking the pond with gates on both ends so she could be off leash. The fenced side yard gave her a space to run. It was very close to town and to our 11 month old granddaughter who we had come to see. We would definitely stay there again.

Perfect last minute rental!

  • 4 of 5

My husband, 2 big dogs and parents had been all set and ready to rent a lake house in Northeast Georgia to celebrate my mom's 70th birthday. Then hurricane Irma happened and the house became unusable. I immediately went to VRBO in the hopes of finding a replacement for a special weekend. Bob responded to my inquiry within minutes and was extremely accommodating. It really saved my mothers birthday. This house was a perfect replacement. While not fancy (fancy is overrated), it is budget friendly, clean, with lovely surroundings and a prime location. It's within 15-25 mins from Asheville, Hendersonville and Black Mountain. We were concerned that we wouldn't be able to find a place that allowed our large, though well-behaved, dogs so last minute. Not a problem at this house! The fenced yard behind the house could not have been more convenient. We also thoroughly enjoyed the well maintained pond that houses gorgeous koi and catfish. Fish food was provided and we fed them every morning, adoring every minute of it! Beautiful weekend.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your very thoughtful review of our property. We are happy that our property was available for you to rent at the last minute, thus saving your mother's birthday celebration. We have several rentals, all price ranges, in order to accommodate everybody's budget. Two years ago, this unit was thoroughly gutted and rebuilt - new kitchen and appliances and all new bathrooms. And you are correct that it is perfect if you have dogs! The only correction I would like to note for anyone else reading this review, is that we are only 2 miles outside of the city limits of Asheville and 6 miles to downtown Asheville . We are not 15 to 25 minutes from Asheville. We hope to see you again and are glad that you enjoyed your stay.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The house was clean and comfortable and equipped with everything we needed. Great view over the water, complete with tranquil fountains. The location is perfect, close to downtown Asheville and the Biltmore Estate. An added bonus was being able to bring our dogs. There is a fully fenced, spacious dog run and many walks and trails in the area, which our dogs loved. It was really nice knowing they were happy and safe while we were out sightseeing. We were able to completely relax and unwind in this little piece of heaven. We will definitely visit again.
