Property Details

Updated: May 21, 2015
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 9 Sleeps

This 1700 sq. ft. house was our home for ten years until recently,

when we built a larger home about three miles away. So we are close

enough to be available when you need us, yet far enough away to give

you the privacy you need. The house sits on almost an acre, so

you're not shoulder to shoulder with neighbors. The back yard is

mostly secluded, especially on the back porch, where the hot tub is


Willow Haven is just 15 minutes from the Biltmore Estate, 7 minutes

from the Asheville Airport and the WNC Ag Center, 5 minutes from the

Blue Ridge Parkway, 25 minutes to Black Mountain, and 20 minutes to


By the way, Asheville has some fantastic restaurants of which most

visitors are not aware. A couple of our favorites include a fine

dining restaurant specializing in German and Italian cuisine and a

smokeless pub that has an Irish music jam session every Sunday night

and Irish/English food. When you arrive at Willow Haven, you will

find a list of our favorites along with directions and phone numbers

for reservations.

About the Owner

After working as missionaries in Zaire, Kenya, and France for 9 years, my wife (Sheryl) and I (Ed) returned to the States and purchased Willow Haven in 1996. We lived there for 12 years. After adopting 3 children, the house began to feel a bit crowded, so in 2007 we built a new house about 3 miles away and began renting Willow Haven as a vacation rental. I also own a small family electronics business in which we design and assemble printed circuit boards, so if you need any pc boards...

Willow Haven, Hot Tub, Close to Biltmore

Asheville Asheville Area

Excellent and Great Location

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed for 3 nights with our 5 children ages 11-17 and 3 additional family members. The house was exactly as pictured on the web site, clean and in great condition. The hot tub, hockey table, TV with DVDs and den area were perfect for a family with children. The owner was also extremely helpful with restaurant advice and the location was great for privacy and convenience to shopping and Ashville. I would highly recommend this home and would definitely schedule it again in the future.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind remarks. Sorry I'm so late responding. Somehow I missed it when you posted it last June! You're more than welcome to return to Willow Haven any time you like!


From the Owner

Willow Haven is 13 miles from the entrance to the Biltmore Estate, 4 miles from the Asheville airport, 4 miles from the Western Carolina Agricultural Center, and about 12 miles from downtown Asheville. It is on a smooth, comfortable, paved road, easy to drive, not steep, does not require a 4 wheel drive except in unusually bad weather, and is just over a mile from I-26, exit 37, where you can find groceries, plenty of nice restaurants, and movie cinemas. Even though there are other houses around, it is pretty much secluded, especially on the back porch where the hot tub is located, so you don't have to worry about neighbors being able to see you. Very homey and comfortable.
