Heaven's Door Step With a View

Bedrooms 3
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 nights


Minimum Stay
2 nights

About the property

3 bed rooms, 2 bathrooms. Mountain views and small vinyard

On top of Davis Mountain, 'Heaven's Door Step' is located in a secluded acres in a rural area above the Laurel Park just west of Hendersonville off Hwy. 64 on the way to Brevard and the Pisgah National Forest.

Our home features a large rustic tiled, screened deck with working natural stone fireplace surrounded by our newly planted orchard and 'Frazier Family Fir Tree Farm'. The twenty mile view extends toward Asheville and beyond. The area is relaxing with almost as many wakers, joggers, dog walkers, and just plain 'walk for the view' strollers than cars.

The rising sun will greet you each morning and put you to bed each evening.

Well, that's just about it. Obviously, we enjoy 'Heaven's Door Step' and believe you will too. Call if you have any questions or concerns. We would love to chat awhile.

About Carol & Dennis Frazier

Our mountain home has been our family since 1990, when my parents purchased it. We purchased from them in 2003 and enjoyed it so much we decided to rent it out for others to enjoy.

Carol & Dennis Frazier purchased this cottage in 1990

Why Carol & Dennis Frazier chose Asheville Area

Our home is a vintage brick ranch built in 1958 by a developer or builder named Mr Fell and was part of the McCarson farm. The second owner was Clio Wortman, who was a popular architect in Fla. He designed one of the buildings in Main street Hendersonville. My parents bought it from him in 1990. The legend is the wife of the first owner liked the view from the hill where the house was going to built, that she described it as being at 'heaven's doorstep.' So we decided to give it that name.

What makes this cottage unique

We have built a beautiful 20x25 screened porch with a stone fireplace, with a slate patio floor. You can enjoy meals while looking at the mts and listening to the birds and the quietness.

It sits upon a hill on 1.25 acres with lots of greenery and stonework.

There are multiple swings for your enjoy. The sliding glass doors takes in the view of the mountains.

A favorite of ours

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this house at least 4 times and each time is better than the time before. Stays have ranged from 2 nights to a full week. The side porch is about the most amazing thing I've ever seen. Our family has developed so many great memories at this place. We would stay more often but it is now often already rented when we want to come to Hendersonville. I agree with everyone else that the porch & view make the place. This is a house I would consider buying if it ever goes on the market.

Peaceful Retreat!

The porch, view and property make the house! It is a peaceful retreat!!! Everything you need at house is provided! The fireplace on the porch was amazing!! The road leading up is a steep gravel road. But again the porch makes it worth the drive!!!

Top of the mountain

  • 5 of 5

The property is really a beautiful site. The reviews were dead on in the reviews. We didn't spend much time in the house because there is so much to explore in the area but when we did the house was more than comfortable. The screened in porch was perfect in the evening watching the lightning bugs fly around the vineyard. The morning coffee was just as appealing watching the light fog raise above the mountains. The owner even called to make sure our stay was going well. Thanks for sharing!

What a wonderful home, everything we needed for our short (get-away) visit. Loved the beautiful porch!

And all the flowers were in bloom - really pretty. Thank you.

Relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Heaven's Door Step. The back porch was amazing. It's close to downtown Hendersonville, apple orchards, hiking trails and waterfalls. We had a great time just relaxing around the fire playing games each evening. Thank you for a great fall getaway. Can't wait to come back!

Rest and relaxation

We stayed in you home for two nights the end of July (21-23). We were very comfortable and loved the screened in porch. We would love to come back again in the fall. Great location to area waterfalls and beautiful view.

Our rustic brick cabin on top of Davis Mountain (3200') west of Hendersonville, NC, in the Laurel Park area off of Hwy 64. The view! The quiet solitude and a colony of abino squirrels! The majestic trees in every direction! Our natural stone working fireplace on the rustic tile 20'x25' screened porch!

We overlook the Laurel Park valley and Asheville and beyond. Hendersonville is 10 min. away at the foot of the mountain, Asheville is to the north, Brevard is 16 minutes west, and historical Flat Rock (with the NC theatre & Carl Sandburg home) is 12 minutes south; each area unique with all of their restaurants, antiques, wineries, farmers markets, museums, library, apple farms, theatre, historic sites. Pisgah National Forest is a short 15 minutes west. Mon Shine

Your only problem will be leaving. And you will not want to come back down the mountain once you arrive; so, get your groceries at Ingles in Laurel Park before you come up.. Your only other problem will be attempting to remove family members from one of the six wooden swings on the one and half acre property in order to eat, sleep, or travel. But, you can always come back anytime you want.

Last year we planted our muscadine orchard, continued planting our 'Frazier Family Frasier Fir Tree Farm' and installed a stone entrance; and you are in the middle of it all. In fact, you are welcome to tag one of the Christmas trees and come back for it this Christmas.

We have continued the orginal owner's tradition of calling our home, 'Heaven's Door Step'. You feel suspended between heaven and earth. The rising sun will greet you over the east ridge each morning and put you to sleep each night as it sets over the west ridge and you can watch all 180 degrees of it.

You will see more walkers, joggers, and dog walkers on the Brightwater Road than cars. Some folks just stand and watch the spectacular views and changing sun sets. In the winter, Turley Falls is visible along the road.

Well, that is about it. It would be our plum pleasing pleasure to personally answer any questions or concerns. Just give us a call; 1-803-517-9815, any time.

We truly enjoy 'Heaven's Door Step' and think you will too.
