About Yonder

Celebrating 10 years in Western North Carolina, Yonder provides relaxing and personalized luxury homes for vacation rentals in and around Asheville; from 1 bedroom loft apartments in the heart of Asheville to 8 bedroom timber frame estates homes. Perfect for romantic weekends to multi generational family gatherings, corporate retreats to weddings, Yonder dedicates itself to providing the ultimate mountain vacation experience. Our promise to you is an easy booking process, a guaranteed clean home and our availability to offer local knowledge and answer any questions you might have.


Why Yonder chose Asheville

The goal was to find a larger home that was extremely close to downtown, but far enough away from the 'hustle & bustle' and a feel for the mountains, but with a 'view to die for'. We also wanted a property we could 'mold' to our personality, and capture some urban flair as well. We also wanted a swimming pool for Summer fun & a large deck area for entertaining. This home fit the bill. The results are nothing short of spectacular!

What makes this house unique

This eclectic & luxurious home, just a mere 4 miles from the center of downtown Asheville, is an upscale hideaway with views like very few others. The house is decorated with a modern art collection, giving it a colorful stylish atmosphere with the comfort of a mountain home away from home. This contemporary gem features a beautifully appointed living room, a dining room that seats up to 12, 5 bedrooms, a large fireplace, big screen TV's, a magnificent deck off the kitchen with a wooded private view on the mountainside and more seating. There then is the larger deck and swimming pool, with the vista of 180 degree views of the mountains and downtown Asheville. Scenic Mountain Retreat has the the unique advantage of being just outside of the hustle and bustle of downtown but only a few minutes away. With views and amenities galore, this house is a dream.

Perfect for a weekend getaway with friends!

  • 5 of 5

As it was my first trip to Asheville, I couldn't have asked for a better experience. The house is overlooking the most incredible view of the mountains. The beautiful colors of the fall mixed with the insane view was truly an unforgettable experience. The staff that we met were so friendly and accommodating. The house is perfect for a gathering of friends for a weekend getaway and catching up! I would highly recommend this house for anyone. Thank you for a wonderful time!!

Wow! Can't wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Scenic Mountain Retreat for a group of 12 friends having a boys weekend in Asheville, and are already planing our trip back! The pictures do not do justice to the house as everyone was so pleasantly surprised by the mid-century modern design of the house both inside and out. The house is tastefully filled with art and conversation pieces that add to the warmth and comfort of the home. The five bedrooms gave us plenty of room to spread out inside, and the expansive property and location led to some great hiking and nights in the hot tub. Will definitely be planning trip in the summer next time so we can enjoy the pool! I would highly recommend this house to any large group. We made the trip down to Biltmore and Asheville a couple of times, and while the mountain road can be daunting, it took just 15 minutes to conquer. The views from the house are incredible, and far better than either words or pictures could describe.

Yonder did a fantastic job preparing us for our visit, and were quick and attentive to our questions when needed.

Older home with a great view

  • 3 of 5

The reason our families selected this home was because of the pool. Upon our arrival the first impression was disappointing as the pool was dirty and not ready to use, however the kids were ready to jump in. In fact, there was a day we could not use the pool due to chemicals that were added. We cleaned the pool several days in a row ourselves in order to use it. The pool had a leak (ongoing) which required water daily. In return, this drained the well almost daily. There were several occasions where water in the house was not available due to the well running low to fill the pool. Overall, the views were amazing however the home is older and in need of some repairs. For example, the sliding glass door was not working correctly, doors would not lock, and there were electrical issues. Overall, we enjoyed our stay in Asheville and made a lot of memories.

many maintenance issues

  • 1 of 5

So many issues. Broken stuff in the fridge, cabinets, door locks and handles; plus dirty ceiling in the basement room, and bugs. There is a strange room next to the basement bedroom that has a dehumidifier that just drains onto the dirt floor, so it sort of circulates water in and out of the air. The management company (Yonder) was very responsive and willing to come out and address things, but we didn't want our vacation interrupted for issues that should have been handled months ago. And, VRBO if you are listening, there is a button at the top of this page that says, "did you enjoy your stay?" I keep pressing "not really" and it seems to be checking "I loved it". The correct answer is not really. Having family together is aways a good time, but we will be going elsewhere next year. As an owner of rental properties it is shameful to me that they don't do basic maintenance. For the cost of this rental they could easily replace major items every week and still make good money. There are lots of rentals in NC for the same price that are much nicer.

Pluses and minuses

  • 2 of 5

The views were amazing. The pool was nice. The large living room and dining room were very nice. The kitchen was well supplied. We cooked many meals for our family of 17. Our issues were the house was extremely dated. Bathrooms needed updated. The kitchen although spacious was outdated. The refrigerator was way to small for a large house. The ice maker was nonfunctional. The pull out couch downstairs was not useable. The beds all could use new mattresses. While paying over $5,000 for 7 days the company wanted to charge an additional $35 to pick up the trash after 5 days. Three trash cans and 3 recycle cans are not enough for a family of 17. Trash pick up at least once should be available with no charge. We also purchased 2 lounge chairs for the pool area because most of the plastic chairs were broken. Spent time playing playing cards on the pool side table but we all came away with splinters. We understand rental property. We have dozens of rentals so we understand the problems with rental properties, but we also know if you don't have a good product people won't continue to rent. Basic on our experence we will not be returning.
