Romantic getaway

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I came into Asheville and stayed at this wonderfully secluded place close to everything. Our host was super kind. The hot tub was excellent! The bed is super comfortable! Our host stayed out of our way and we enjoyed everything Asheville had to offer. The Hole and Sunny Point Cafe are musts while there. Wonderful town and I must say this place is way better than any hotel. Be open minded and enjoy. Thank you Michael for opening up your doors to us! We will be staying here again In March of 2017 for the Biltmore Marathon again I promise you!

Quiet, but close to everything. Very nice, clean, and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent place to stay. Michael is a great host. It's a very nice rental. All the reviews about a comfortable bed are not wrong...it's like sleeping on a cloud! The shower is a nice stone shower. And it's less than a 10-15 minute drive to downtown Asheville or the Biltmore. This was a great stay, with great hosts, in a great location. We will definitely be looking this property up again on our next weekend to Asheville. Thank you, Michael!

Secluded and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

Arrived late in the evening so it was slightly tricky to find, but the host left detailed instructions where to park and where to go which was very helpful. The room had quite a bit of space, was very relaxing, and the bed was comfy as advertised. The hot tub was steamy and certainly a treat late in the evening after a full day exploring although having a robe available would have been nice.

Overall quiet and relaxing. Would stay there again.

Nice, quiet, clean, centrally located, pet friendly....Micheal is a very good host.

  • 5 of 5

We will stay here on our next trip to Asheville, if it is available.

We visit here 3-4 times a year, and know the area well. Perfect location.

This was our first VRBO rental and will not be our last.

Thank You Micheal for providing a great experience.
