Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a group of 14 stay here at Mountain Laurel Lodge. Ages ranged from mid-sixties to 4 months old. The house was large enough that we could each retreat into our own corners or mix & mingle in the main living areas. The kids enjoyed the toys & hanging out in the master suite's living area watching movies. The main bedrooms all being on the entry level was nice especially since one member of our party has knee trouble and can't easily climb stairs. Beautiful decor, very clean and welcoming!

Blown away

  • 5 of 5
Mountain Laurel Lodge was all we hoped for, but was so much more than we ever imagined. What an awesome place to stay for families, The kitchen has every large, high quality appliance for feeding families and everything cupboard, cabinet and outlet in labeled for easy use. This also includes the enormous washer and drier instructions that were so easy to follow. The manager provides lists of places to see, kid friendly places to see, local restaurants and ones that are open on Thanksgiving and Christmas Day, events in the area, plus directions to all of these places. The beds are very comfortable and the kids room was such a hit with books,stuffed animals, plus family games for all ages. The home is in a great location near large 24 hr. grocery stores, great shopping in all the towns nearby, hiking, fishing, or just sitting on the wrap around porch enjoying nature while grilling . The home was very clean, beautifully decorated and was a wonderful home for us for an awesome week. I would recommend this home over and over and over again. We have been here twice and plan on returning real will not be disappointed...and are available to you if you have any questions on the home. They REALLY do pamper you .

Great place to stay. Enjoyed relaxing with our family, secluded but not too far from the main road. Great play area, fire pit, and outdoor decks. Well equipped kitchen. You might also want try Blue Sky near by for casual dinning.

A 5 star home at a very reasonable price!!!

  • 5 of 5
The home is a very beautiful, spacious, updated property with amenities galore!! The hot tub, grill and accessories, very workable kitchen, wonderful baths and it was hard to get out of bed they were so comfortable and the massage chair in the living area was the most popular pass time. Some of us enjoyed bike rides, others the Biltmore tour (very interesting) and the fall colors were beautiful - and we enjoyed eating at the home together and just visiting with each other. We highly recommend this property and hope others enjoy it as much as we did. It is very clean and well maintained. Definately a 5 star choice!!! Thanks to Stephanie and her home.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5
The house was located close enough to everything we wanted to do, but far enough away to "get away" We went to the Biltmore, the Botanical Gardens, the Arts District and more. On our way out of town went to Chimney Rock. There is a lot of space and the house is very kid friendly. The description was accurate, and the home was very clean. The lay out of the house is a bit quirky, but functional.

Warm and inviting

  • 5 of 5
When we first pulled up to the property our first words were wow! When we drove around and went inside,it was absolutely breathtaking! The lights were all on and provided a warm glow against the homeliness of the wood decor inside. It was like coming home. We are from Marshall and come home every September for homecoming on the Lewis Branch in Madison County. Your beautiful home made our visit together memorable. Everything we needed was furnished inside the home. ( my brother lost a screw from his glasses and we even found a replacement screw and small screwdriver in the drawer.) that was a metrical,haha) but saved us a trip to store,as our time was limited and plans for each event was limited! Thank you for making such a memorable stay for our family to be together and having everything we could possibly need on hand!

Home from home with added perks!

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful lodge. We had a fantastic 9 night stay in this homely, clean, well maintained ideally situated lodge. We totally felt spoilt from the moment we walked in the door until we left. This home is well situated close to Hendersonville town and close to various attractions. We wanted a relaxing stay after touring therefore didn't take advantage of many attractions but did visit Chimney Rock, shopping in Ashville and Hendersonville, took scenic drives through blue ridge.
Lovely meals had in the Outback. Would recommend this rental lodge to anyone who wants a home from home, with perks! Sauna was fab and the massage chair such a treat! A huge thank you to Stephanie for making it possible for us to share your beautiful home. Will definitely hope to come back in the future. X

From the Owner

With all the special touches, I promise you that my vacation rental homes will feel as though you are staying at a friend’s warm inviting home rather than a 'vacation rental house.' You'll appreciate the tasteful decor and thoughtful care my homes reflect. Each home has been lovingly remodeled, elegantly furnished, beautifully decorated and thoughtfully accessorized with special amenities to pamper you including massage chairs, hot tubs, high speed wireless Internet, king beds with sumptuous bedding, HDTV’s & DVD's, movie libraries, quality well-equipped kitchens, fireplaces, central heat & air conditioning, washers & dryers and much more! Unique to my homes are all the amenities offered for babies and children. There are cribs, pack-n-plays, strollers, high chairs, baby bath tubs, stuffed animals & blankies. Older children love to play on the outdoor playgrounds with forts, slides, swings, climbing walls, etc. plus games, books, toys, kids DVD movies and more. Kids of all ages love to roast marshmallow at the firepits. My homes are easily accessed, right in-town, close to grocery stores, restaurants and shopping. No winding mountain roads to get lost in or long drives to town. The homes are in peaceful, lush vacation spots where you can relax and feel at home. Rather than dealing with a third party management company with limited business hours & knowledge of a home, you can deal directly with me, the owner. I am available to you 7 days-a-week, anytime between 9 AM and 7 PM and after hours for emergencies. I know my properties intimately because I have personally had them restored, remodeled, furnished and equipped. YOU are my full time business! Because I live locally, I am available whenever you call. Email me for my web address to see all 10 of my vacation homes. Take a virtual tour at AshevilleVacationHomes.
