Nice home with good location

  • 4 of 5

We liked the size of the home and location best. Owners were nice. The views out of the windows are great and the back deck was nice to drink coffee on in the morning. Note: (this place is not facing the sunset) Spiral staircase was a challenge if you had to use the bathroom in the middle of the night. Kitchen was well stocked but not as clean as I would have liked. Pretty dusty throughout the home. Grass needed to be cut as the weeds were up to my knees almost.. Not as secluded as I hoped but it was a nice home overall and the bedding and bathrooms were nice. Good for the price. None of this would effect me from reserving again, this is just stuff I noticed...Pet friendly was a great plus! Overall, 4 out 5 stars. 🙂 Good value.

If ever you find a problem with the cleaning please let us know as we respond quickly to those problems. You don't have the sunset but the sunrises over the mountains is nice.

Relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Great location! Quiet, beautiful view, yet easy access to grocery store and downtown! We found all of the amenities that we needed for our stay, and the house was clean and tidy! Our boys stayed in the upstairs loft without any trouble, but I can see where adults with some wear on the knees might struggle with the spiral staircase after a night or two. we enjoyed our stay in Asheville!

beautiful view, good location

  • 4 of 5

Clean, comfortable home in a great spot. Out in the hills but easy access to town and shopping.

The downstairs comfortable but I found my loft bed too soft (no one else in my party complained about beds.) could have used more towels. Also, and important, spiral staircase to loft a challenge to my older bones . Upstairs perfect for kids.

The owner was always available to respond to questions.

Would readily return if I was staying in the downstairs bedroom.

In the woods and close to town

  • 5 of 5

This is a nice little rental house! It has a great view of the mountains and is fairly private. The location is awesome if you want to have that nature/woods feel but be close to Asheville. Grocery etc are also very conveniently locate. This place has all the amenities to make for an enjoyable stay. We would stay here again!

Comfortable, secluded home in the woods

  • 4 of 5

Overall the home was adequate for our family needs but did not really excel in a noticeable way. The home was clean and well maintained with the exception of some ants near the fireplace. Portions of the street and all of the driveway are steep and gravel and could be difficult in the winter. Hosts were helpful and accommodating.
