Relaxing Stay in the Mountains

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not capture how cool this place really is. Above garage apartment is private clean and roomy with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The beds were comfortable and we all slept well. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need to cook and serve. Grill on the deck in back and all the tools you need to use it. Hot Tub on the deck was clean and awesome. The back yard is fenced and our bulldog was very relaxed and happy (she is usually nervous when we travel). This property is close to the Blue Ridge Parkway and many breathtaking views. James and Nettie were great hosts with helpful info about the area. We had a great time and will book this place again when we go back. Make sure to try the local breweries if you enjoy craft beer. Some of the best beer I've had.

LOVED our vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in the garden apartment. Our hosts were welcoming and helpful and everything we needed was graciously provided.

The Blue Ridge Parkway is minutes away and full of interesting hikes, waterfalls, swimming areas and educational opportunities. Asheville and The Biltmore are very close as well.

The children and pups especially enjoyed the open space on the property to run and play.

One of our favorite vacations by far.

Wonderful apartment in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 5 nights, and couldn't have been more pleased with the property or location. The apartment is located about 20 minutes from Asheville proper, at the edge of the Pisgah forest. It's extremely secluded feeling, yet very accessible to both Asheville and the Blue Ridge Parkway as it passes through the Pisgah.

The apartment is clean, excellently appointed, and situated near a rushing creek that made for relaxing mornings, evenings and sleep.(ie, all day). The owners live next door and were very attentive to our needs and really friendly.

I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a quiet (but convenient) getaway - couples or small families.

James was an awesome host! The house had everything we needed plus more. He was very welcoming of my family and our dogs! He was helpful with places to eat and go and very inviting! I loved everything about it! The beds were extremely cozy and the place was extra clean! This was our first time using VBRO and he has set the bar high!

Beautiful location and cozy apartment

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay with James. He was more than accommodating and helpful. We had reservations to the Biltmore for which I had forgotten to print the tickets. He was more than willing to print them up for me.

The apartment was great. There were four of us staying there and it fit our needs perfectly. The hot tub was hot and clean, the apartment was clean. Just a great, great place.

The one thing I would say to be careful about is that we had a car with low clearance and bottomed out driving up to the property after we crossed the stream. Just be careful about that (we bottomed out because we had four adults in a low-clearance car). All we had to do was have a few of the adults exit and then we were fine. In no way did that take away from our stay.

Peaceful and charming

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful apartment, very cozy and comfortable, has everything you need. My kids loved playing music on Alexa and exploring the little waterfall at the entrance. The dogs really enjoyed the yard. I truly loved sitting on the deck in the mornings drinking my coffee and listening to the water and birds chirping. Very close to the Blue Ridge Parkway and hiking trails. James and Ginger were wonderful hosts. Hopefully one day we can make it back for another visit.
