About Stephanie Joy Johnson

I am Stephanie Joy Johnson. My passion is creating beauty in real estate….remodeling and restoring homes, landscape design, interior home décor and, best of all, making guests feel pampered when they stay at my personally owned luxury vacation homes in the gorgeous mountains of Western North Carolina. I devote myself full-time to taking care of my homes & guests. YOU are my full-time business! My business is called Asheville Vacation Homes.

I began this business in 2004 and delight in finding beautiful locations and gorgeous homes for vacation rental settings. I am always searching for interesting furnishings (shopping!) to add to the delightful decor for my guests.

During your stay, you also might meet my awesome property manager and “fix-it man,” David. He can take care of any maintenance or property issues should they arise. He and I are both available 7-days-a-week to make sure your stay is the best ever!

Email me for my web address to see all 10 of my vacation homes. Take a virtual tour at AshevilleVacationHomes.

INDULGE! You deserve to be spoiled at my vacation home! I am a caring local owner and answer all inquiries personally.

Stephanie Joy Johnson purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Stephanie Joy Johnson chose Asheville Area

I am passionate about living in these awesome Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina and adore sharing my vacation rental homes with guests who come to experience our area’s mountains & towns. I take exquisite care of my properties and am available anytime to see to your needs. I make sure each home is exceptionally clean, meticulously well-maintained and the hot tub sparkling with fresh water.

I have lived in Asheville, North Carolina for many years and find great joy in discovering more and more reasons why this is the BEST PLACE IN THE WORLD TO LIVE! Asheville is consistently in the “Top 10 Places To Live” according to almost any criterion published! It’s a diverse multi-cultural blend of mountain folk and cosmopolitan society set in a dramatically beautiful mountain setting. It is my heart-felt desire to provide gorgeous welcoming homes in spectacular settings and to share this town with you!

What makes this cabin unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I took my mom to North Carolina so she could visit her cousin. We stayed at the Story Book Cottage. It was the most relaxing week I ever spent anywhere. The cottage had everything you could possibly need plus more. The very best part was how quiet and serene it was. Not far away there was a cider mill with the best fresh cold crisp cider. The Biltmore was a short drive away. It was the perfect location to everything. I know the Story Book Cottage will see me again when I need a break from my busy life.

Wonderful place to stay. I don't think there was anything I needed that hadn't been provided! The "cottage" is decorated beautifully. We visited the Grove Park Inn just for fun, and other than the view, the "cottage" was a much better place to stay! Thanks for thinking of EVERYTHING when you furnished the house. The massage chair was a great hit with us!

We hope to stay here again.

Charming, peaceful and nicely appointed!

We enjoyed our one week stay in the Storybook cottage immensely! It was stocked with everything one might need and then some. We walked in the woods behind the cottage and around the lovely neighborhood. I could hardly pry my husband from the massage chair and the hot tub! Totally terrific vacation!
