A new mini-split HVAC system has recently been installed to keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Our home is non smoking and we ask that if anyone in your party does smoke that they please do so outside. After driving up our 400' secluded driveway, you will have private parking for 2 vehicles on your 1200 square foot concrete parking area. You will also have your own separate access to your retreat.

We also offer a pet service for feeding and walking your dogs while you are away each day from the retreat if needed. We welcome pets but ask that you please keep them off the furniture, respect the interior of the home and please crate when leaving them alone. If camping is on your mind, we can set up a tent in the nearby woods for you and your kids to enjoy.

A few other suggestions only 60 miles away would be to visit the Cherokee Indian Reservation, Harrah's Cherokee Casino, Mount Mitchell, Grand Father Mountain, Ski Resorts, Lake Lure, Sliding Rock, DuPont and Pisgah National Forest. For the ultimate family adventure, zip lining in beautiful Madison County or rafting class 4 -5 rapids in Nantahala are there for the challenge.

Spend the evening relaxing by the fire pit roasting s'mores or in a hammock as you enjoy the cool nights. The kids will love it here with a creek below the house, woods to explore and a perfect place for taking morning or evening walks or runs. Our hope is that you will relax and enjoy your vacation while we provide you with all the luxuries of home.

About Jason Alexander
My wife and I were both born and raised in Fairview / Asheville area and along with our 2 wonderful daughters and 2 English Labradors spend countless hours in these beautiful mountains fishing, tubing and hiking. Our home location is great with tennis courts and golf courses within 5-10 miles of our residence. My wife and I are both teachers and coaches at a local private Christian school. We are true native WNC through and through so if we can be of any assistance with planning your trip, please don't hesitate to ask. We may know of some places to visit that others have never heard about.
Jason Alexander purchased this House in 2014
Why Jason Alexander chose Fairview
In my opinion, no other area offers what WNC offers in beauty, adventure, great seasonal weather and the diverseness that Asheville brings.

Very clean and nice setting
We had a great Easter weekend staying at the property. It is a small drive to all you need to see in the Asheville area, but is in a lovely wooded area. The place was very clean and the owner was helpful. We would recommend staying here. Thank you. S. Steyn
We love the place!
We spent NYE at the retreat and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The place is very nice, very clean and it has everything we needed. Jason was super nice, he gave us great information to nearby trails and we had a great hike! His daughter was really sweet to help us with dog-sitting while we were out in town. We also encountered bad winter weather unexpectedly on NYE when we tried to get back and we got stuck on the icy road in downtown Asheville, Jason was so kind to guide us back to his house. We were absolutely thankful of him! and we really had a great time staying at his house.
What a wonderful place to stay for Christmas Vacation!
We brought our family of 5 plus our dog to explore Asheville and surrounding towns during Christmas break. We loved every minute of it! The condo was cozy, roomy, and decorated for Christmas! The family was super helpful in suggestions for tubing, skiing, hiking, and restaurants. We can’t say enough about their sweet daughter who helped with our dog Moose’s while we were away during the day. The kids loved the on site trails, fire pit, and chickens. We loved having a kitchen and washer and dryer. We loved it so much and can’t wait to get back!!
Great location, nice rental
The rental was clean and homey, including everything we needed for a comfortable short stay. The owners were very nice and the highlight was how much our dog loved running around the beautiful property with the owners' dogs. It would have been challenging for our family to stay much longer due to the truncated kitchen. We would have needed a stove if we weren't eating out so much. This worked out perfectly for a nice place to stay for our long weekend getaway!
Beautiful Mountain Retreat
We had a wonderful stay at Stone Creek Retreat. It was a beautiful location near lots of trails and easy access into downtown Asheville and Black Mountain where we were for a cycling event. Jason's home is warm, cozy and immaculate! We were so comfortable and glad we got to bring our dog Winthorp with us. Jason provided lots of great tips for us for near by trails to explore and was extremely helpful in providing anything we needed. His lovely daughter Katie provided pet sitting services and took care of our dog on Saturday when we were at our bike ride. This is a great service to have when traveling with your dog and Katie did a great job. I'd recommend her if traveling with your dogs.
We really enjoyed our stay and hope to be back soon for another adventure. Jason's retreat is the place to be especially in October; the leaves were amazing!
Would stay again
Everything we needed in a centralized location. Plus it’s pet friendly! Thanks Jason!
Thanks for staying with us. Hope you had a wonderful time and please remember us again when coming back to the mountains of western North Carolina.
