A Little Bit of Heaven

Review submitted: June 17, 2014   Date of arrival: May 25, 2014

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

Wonderful fit for our extended family!

Review submitted: January 26, 2014   Date of arrival: January 17, 2014

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!

We had a great time at this beautiful lodge!

Review submitted: November 18, 2013   Date of arrival: November 8, 2013

Mountain Laurel Lodge has everything a family needs to have a wonderful time. We were so impressed with all the fun games, movies, books and toys for our children. The outdoor play area and the fire pit were huge hits with the kids. The massage chair was so inviting. The adults and children wanted to sit in it all the time. The hot tub was a wonderful treat. We had a full house with three families but we never felt crowded. We were able to cook every meal in the large kitchen. We had the best time!
