About the property

5-bdrm/5-bath Stunning Upscale Retreat!

This is simply a spectacular home!!

Rhododendron Villa is a luxurious vacation rental home minutes away from historic Hendersonville, located in a very private and exclusive community. Surrounded by lush vegetation and woods, this gorgeous Villa also has a large yard with Koi pond and water features, all in a very private setting. The great room with a floor to ceiling stone fireplace, opens to a wonderful kitchen and wet bar area, perfect for entertaining and relaxing with friends and family. This incredible vacation rental villa also has a custom built home theater!

Come experience a relaxing and luxurious getaway. You don't need to spend $100+ to take the family to the movies when you have your own private big screen theater right inside the villa! The custom Theater features a 7.1 Surround Sound system, with a 103″ screen. Visit the "snack bar" to get popcorn and candy while enjoying a movie.

The home affords year round access, does NOT require 4-wheel drive, and is NOT off any steep, windy or rural mountain roads. You will be in a beautiful quiet community, affording safe places for kids to play, adults to take a stroll or hike, and everyone to relax. The lots all have acreage & the homes were built for extreme privacy & enjoyment.

Get ready to be "wowed" by this 5,500+ sq. ft. spectacular modern, contemporary mountain style retreat villa home. Beautiful wood & natural stone exterior are coupled with soaring vistas, high ceilings, vaulted spaces, and hard wood floors throughout the main floor, you will immediately feel at home at Rhododendron Villa. And of course, the draw for all ages, the custom-built HOME THEATER! Watch all your favorite movies in leather custom auto reclining theater seating for up to 9, with extra seating on the floor down in front. This is a crowd favorite!

The great room, with stone fireplace, and fully equipped gourmet kitchen, is where everyone will want to gather to enjoy their time together, but there are numerous other indoor spaces to read a book, surf the web, play games, etc. And, if you need some "alone time", there is plenty of space inside and out to find your own serenity. The back yard has a massive koi pond with 2 waterfalls & dozens of Japanese Koi for ultimate relaxation. You can listen to the hypnotic sound of rushing water all year round & just R-E-L-A-X. There is also a fantastic firepit (with wood included) to enjoy the evening without distractions.

Kids love getting out in and around the pond & the woods & outdoor areas. The expansive deck and patio are just off the Kitchen & Great room, and afford additional outdoor space to relax & unwind. Pull up a chair and take in the forest view, observe the night as it fills with stars, and watch the fire flies come out to play in your backyard. Or, meander throughout the marked hiking trails within the community.

This community offers plenty of acreage for nature walks and exploring, biking, and other exercise; and the converted carpeted and heated garage has some work out equipment plus games, perfect for the kids or whole family.

You are also just minutes from America's favorite scenic byway, The Blue Ridge Parkway, biking, hiking, white water rafting, rock climbing, kayaking, canoeing, zip lining, Segway tour…just about any outdoor activity! Take a quick ride to downtown Asheville to enjoy the first-rate restaurants, shopping, galleries, spas, and entertainment. Hendersonville offers great antique shopping, fine dining, famous local art galleries, the Flat Rock Playhouse, the Carl Sandberg Home, and lots of free concerts & more. Take a amazing tour of the BMW plant in Greenville S.C.. (50 minutes away) to see cars assembled.

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 Hendersonville

Originally, we had bought a home in Beech Mountain and decided it was too secluded (30 minutes to the grocery store) and too high up (4,500' altitude). We bought this property in 2006 because it reminded us of our ski trips to Colorado, its physical beauty, its proximity to town (6 minutes) and nature, plenty of stone and wood, close to everything and easier altitude (2,400').

What makes this villa unique

This home has a unique layout, where our whole family (12) could spend time together without getting in each others way! We could enjoy the outdoors and come home to BBQ, relax by the koi pond or watch a movie in our theater that we personally designed and built.

Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 was in the area for a wedding and were lucky to book this house! Everything there is amazing, from the theater to the comfy furniture to the well stocked kitchen. We had two people who needed quiet space to work, and the office was perfect for both of them. The spacious kitchen is fun for people to hang out in while others are cooking. Plus we had fantastic weather, so sitting on the porch was peaceful and serene.

We all want to go back when we can spend a few days just relaxing there!

Beautiful mountain home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of ten adults and 4 children 2 and under spent this past thanksgiving long weekend in your beautiful home! The home was so spacious and well designed so that there was plenty of room for both togetherness and privacy! We loved the the beautiful stone fireplace in the family living area and the grounds outside with it’s convenient fire pit. The home theatre was fantastic and enjoyed by everyone! The location was beautiful and private but close enough to make visits visits to wineries, downtown Hendersonville, Brevard, Asheville and Lake Lure! We would definitely stay here again!!

Met all expectations!

  • 5 of 5

This house was clean, well-stocked with basic supplies, and huge! Our group really enjoyed the screened porch and the deck, as well as the many other roomy and comfortable places to sit around and visit. The location is convenient to Hendersonville activities, Lake Lure, and Asheville. The ladies at the Yonder agency (Ann Marie and her colleagues) were excellent - helpful in every way!

There is only one heads-up about the house: The description indicates 5 BRs and 5 Baths. True, there are 5 BRs and 5 Baths, but the layout is a little inconvenient. There is an extra bath on the ground level which is not connected with a bedroom, and there are two bedrooms downstairs, with only one bath. Moreover, the people in one of the downstairs bedrooms have to go through the other bedroom to get to the bath. I think it would be better to know this ahead of time, as the description is not clear about that.

All-in-all, this is a beautiful house in a perfect location! I highly recommend it!

Million dollar house on the golf course

  • 5 of 5

This house is,bigger than the pictures show, it's on champion hills golf course high up in the mountains with a woods view. Every morning we would walk the golf course and see lots of turkeys and deer. If you like movies it has an indoor movie theater with lots of good movies. It's very easy to operate also. It's about a 5 min drive down the mountain to Main Street. Overall this house is great for large family's and it's very secluded which was nice. Lots of wild life and 10 min from jump off rock which has incredible views for 10's of miles in every direction. Highly recommend
