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!

Great stay!

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

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

A Little Bit of Heaven

  • 5 of 5
If you're looking for a vacation home that is quiet and secluded, yet has easy access to every place you would want to visit in the Asheville area, Mountain Laurel Lodge is the place for you. After spending three weeks there with different family members and friends joining my husband and me during the time, I can write with confidence that the home is clean and well-maintained, is comfortable for both children and adults, has everything you need in the kitchen, as well as throughout the home, has wonderful beds and linens, and is truly a delightful place to stay. The sparkling clean hot tub was a definite plus that was enjoyed by all of our group. We loved sitting on the porches for early morning coffee or visits in the evening. The children loved being able to play outside. One day they even made fairy houses and looked each morning to see if a fairy had come. White squirrels and a cottontail rabbit played along the edge of the woods. Among our favorite area activities were rafting the French Broad River with the French Broad Rafting Company, horseback riding at Cedar Creek Ranch, taking a trolley tour of Asheville, touring the Biltmore, and spending time in both Hendersonville and Flat Rock. Carl Sandburg's home and goat farm is definitely worth seeing and having barbecue at Hubba Hubbas is a good place for lunch afterwards. In fact, all of our restaurant meals were delicious. One thing we especially liked about the Hendersonville/Flat Rock area is that we didn't feel like tourists. All of the shops were authentic. There's a great children's play place on Main Street and Fired Up Ceramics was fun, too.. Another plus for this area are the wonderful locally grown food markets. Last, if you're a gardener like I am, do not miss Raymond's Nursery in Hendersonville...outstanding,...80% of the plants are propagated there. Our visit was one where tons of memories were made. We would love to come again and would definitely choose Mountain Laurel Lodge as our home away from home. Dianne Mapp, June 17, 2014

Great house, great location, great for those with kids!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Mountain Laurel Lodge for 5 days - the weather was absolutely perfect and it was a great time of year to visit the Asheville area. The house was really great - there are two master suites downstairs on either side of the main living area, and another bedroom beyond the kitchen. The rest of the bedrooms are upstairs. There were two couples and three kids, so the adults took the lower floor and the kids were upstairs. The house has lots of things for kids (playground, high chairs, strollers, cribs, infant bathtub, etc). And the kitchen has lots of things not normally stocked in a rental home (spices, sandwich bags, etc). It felt like we were renting someone's home instead of someone's vacation house, which was really nice. House was very clean.

The location of the house is great - it is about 20 mins from Asheville, 10 minutes from Henderson, and 10 minutes from the BRP. We were down there for a vet conference as well as to mountain bike, and the house is pretty close to the Pisgah / Black Mountain area, as well as Dupont State Forest. Hundreds of miles of trails within 20 minutes of the house.

Couldn't have asked for a better trip - wouldn't hesitate to stay at Mountain Laurel Lodge again!

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.
