About Eric Lyons

Here I am in downtown Asheville enjoying the day with my oldest daughter.

I am retired, a former Marine and business owner. I love the outdoors and all the things it has to offer. I enjoy traveling In my RV, kayaking, camping, bicycling, hunting, fishing, and spending time with my family.

I have two wonderful daughters that keep me going.

Eric Lyons purchased this house in 2013

Why Eric Lyons chose Kenilworth

The reason I chose Asheville for a rental/retirement home is because my oldest daughter lives here and we enjoy spending time together in this awesome town.

I spent many years as a youngster in this area when my grandparent's came here for vacation and the majestic beauty of the Blue Ridge mountains' and surrounding areas.

Great location, roomy, comfortable, and immaculate!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the opportunity to stay at this property in July and I couldn't have been more pleased.The Wyoming House actually felt like home! There was plenty of space and privacy to accommodate 8 adults as well as, a beautiful kitchen and deck to socialize in. This had been an important consideration in selecting a house as we don't have an opportunity to be together very frequently. The house's proximity to the downtown areas as well as the mountains made our days full of adventure. However, it was great to know we had a comfortable place to go and relax together at the end of each day. We also really appreciated having a top notch washer and dryer at our disposal. Our host, Eric, left great directions as well as recommendations and was prompt in all communication. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to others and hope that I will have another opportunity to visit Asheville in the near future.

Great find in Asheville

  • 5 of 5

My family loved Eric's house. The location was great, close to everything we wanted to do. My granddaughter loved the park just down the street.

The house was comfy and quiet. Plenty of room for all of us. The kitchen was nicely stocked-best I have ever stayed in. Eric thought of all the little things that make his place a real gem. We will definitely stay there again in the future.

Lovely house

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house located within a mile or two of downtown Asheville. Very clean and well furnished. Plenty of room. Only issue was that the TV is very difficult to operate.
