"Best Ever Vacation Rental"
White Stone Lake Manor was the best vacation ever. Our family (7 members) spent a week in this lovely home. For the past 6-7 yrs. , we have rented homes in the Asheville/Black Mt. area, but none have provided more comfort and rest than this one. This 2-acre property proved serenity, at best. Ranging in age from 4-80 years, we found that each of us had our own corners of the home.
The king-size beds on the first floor were so distanced from each other that we always had complete privacy and quietness. The lower level was spacious and a perfect hangout for the older children with additional sleeping areas and a wonderful media room. They had many, many movies to pick from and load on the huge TV, complete with surround sound.
The large pond on the property, stocked with a variety of fish for the kids to feed provided endless hours of fun. The playground on the property was a source of fun for the smaller children with its slide and swings, etc. Grandma and grandpa enjoyed the carefree days lying in the hammock under the beautiful trees. It brought back memories of bygone days. The kids loved the fire pit for roasting their marshmallows and eating their s'mores.
Stephanie and Robert provided every conceivable amenity in this beautiful home-art work adorned every wall. I felt, at times, I was walking through an exquisite art gallery-so tastefully done. This was more than a "home away from home". It excelled in every area when looking for a comfortable vacation rental. The home is just a breath away from Ingles, a fine grocery store and many other stores and restaurants. No more looking for me!!! This will be our choice each and every year at vacation time.

"Perfect Vacation Experience"
I researched quite a bit to find something that our varied group would all like. The pictures and description on the listing were detailed and beautifully done, but couldn't begin to fully prepare us for the fabulous experience. I think it is the quality of every detail of the house that is remarkable, particularly in terms of luxurious comfort. But even more amazing is that whatever pops into your mind to look for (and our group included my 85 year old mother, my husband and friends in their 60's and their children in their 30's down to grandchildren 3 and 6) you will find somewhere in the house. An amazing amount of thought went into providing a perfect atmosphere for a relaxed, wonderful vacation experience.
I came home and immediately went on line to look at other rental properties that Stephanie manages because we want to go back and can't imagine renting from anyone else.

Beyond Outstanding Amenities!
The house was beautiful! There were so many comfy areas to hang out that even with 16 people it never felt crowded. The kids loved the dorm style bunk room. There was plenty of seating in two living rooms. The beds were exceptionally comfortable. From bbq to bread mixer to electric frying pan and pancake grill to hot tub to foosball table to great deck and lawn, we used and enjoyed it all. It is hard to imagine anyone being disappointed with this home. Stephanie and Robert couldn't have been more friendly and helpful.
- The Ross Family, Marysville, WA
Wonderful, relaxing mountain vacation!
We spent a wonderful week with our extended family enjoying all the house had to offer. We ranged in age from 2 - 65, and there was something for everyone. The kids loved playing in the backyard, spotting the koi fish in the pond, and having s'mores around the fire. The huge back deck with plenty of seating was very relaxing, especially in the evenings.The home had way more than enough space for our group of 9, so we were really able to spread out & have our privacy when needed. The kids rooms downstairs were absolutely magical for the kids. I really loved & appreciated the extremely well-stocked kitchen. It had everything you'd ever need - much better stocked than even my own kitchen & I'm a gourmet cook! Upon our return home, we discovered my youngest daughter had left behind her beloved stuffed kitten. When I contacted the owner, she found the cat & even mailed it to me! I can't say enough about the terrific property - it really far exceeded what we expected!

"A fabulous place for a family reunion!"
My family of thirteen adults (mother, husband, son, daughter, brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews) stayed at the White Stone Lake Manor home for an extended weekend for a family wedding and reunion and we loved the home. It felt like a home, so comfortably furnished and complete with everything needed (or wanted) for a luxurious experience. The very well equipped kitchen was large enough for several cooks and helpers at the same time and the living room accommodated us all for several evenings of music , singing and games. The bedrooms were very comfortable and spacious . The home was large enough to give us both privacy and togetherness and we all would love to stay there again. It's true, you will feel pampered!
- The Perrin Family, Davidsonville, MD
Amazingly beautiful and comfortable home with everything for everyone! Our stay at this home was more than wonderful! We were a party of 15 adults, 3 children under 3 yrs old and we found literally everything we needed from sippy cups to a keyboard for our Sunday morning worship...not to mention the hot tub, foosball, massage chair and movies for the big "kids". We cooked all our meals there and the kitchen is truly fully equipped for large crowds. Very comfortable and lovely home that you will not want to leave.
- The Barnes family, Raleigh, NC
"All the little details included..."
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay! They really thought of all the little details and things that truly made it feel like a home away from home from the cozy blankets to snuggle up on the couch with to little areas to play games to marshmallow roasting forks for the fire pit. The kitchen was so well-stocked that we ended up eating in more than we ate out because it was that enjoyable to do so. The property was quiet, relaxing, and very peaceful. The house was a great choice for multiple families. There were 8 active children in all and normally when we are together we feel on top of one another and confined. This was not the case at all with this property. The kids were all thrilled with the bunk room and the play room as well as the big TVs and play area outside. It was beautifully decorated and very clean and well-kept. It was very convenient to grocery stores, restaurants, a quaint downtown area, and local hiking, fishing, shopping, and other fun spots.

"Promise fulfilled and More!" Seldom do the pictures of a house truly represent what one finds on arrival. In this case the pictures understate reality. The house absolutely lived up to expectations, and more. The layout of the house made it possible for people to have space of their own and to join with others when they wanted to. The grounds - including a pond, an excellent climbing structure, picnic tables in various places, and a large space for running were all inviting and much used. The house itself was outfitted with absolutely everything you could need, with high quality kitchen equipment, very comfortable beds, complete equipment for an infant, and toys and games galore for all ages. Plus it is located not far from the center of asheville, and close to Pisgah National Forest and other wonderful nature adventures. You won't run out of things to do.
- The Evans family, San Diego, CA
Five of my sisters and our spouses were guests in White Stone Lake Manor for one week for a family reunion. It was delightful, with every need anticipated and provided for with quality items and equipment. We loved the great linens, the many TVS, including the large screen in the lower level. We especially liked the fact that everyone could find a little quiet place for rest, when they needed. Everyone enjoyed the lake, the fish, the heron, and the other wildlife). We loved the area, explored and visited, and just didn't get around to enjoy the hot tub (maybe next time). The kitchen was wonderful for six cooks, and it was important for all of us to eat together at one table. Thanks for making it available. We will come again, next time with our own grown children.
-The Collins Family, Union, KY
In July my best friend and I brought our girls (ages 5-13) to North Carolina and stayed at the White Stone Lake Manor. The house was so large it was nice to be able to spread out and get some "alone" space when needed. There was so much to do on property that coming home or staying the day at home was a treat. The hot tub is awesome in the evening and we enjoyed running around the back yard catching fire flies. Stephanie keeps the house well stocked and has signs telling you everything you need to know. I highly recommend staying at this property.
-The Lewis Family, Maitland, FL
Hi, Stephanie. We very much enjoyed our stay and our whole family was very excited to be in a house which was so carefully outfitted for a family with many kids of different ages and desires. (Including at least one "kid" son-in-law who made good and frequent use of the hot tub). Actually, since the weekend weather wasn't so good, it was especially important that there was so much for the kids to do at the house, and that it was clearly set up for them. And for those of us who cooked, the kitchen was so well set up, and we loved the huge refrigerator! And it was great that there were so many towels, etc. So often in a rental you are frustrated by the lack of amenities. That's not at all true in your place.
My brother and his wife who live nearby in Mills River came for dinner on Saturday night and they were astonished at how nice the place was. I am sure they will be recommending it to folks they know who have large families coming to visit. Again, thanks for your hospitality and for the follow up. We'd be happy to put any of this you think would be useful on the on-line guest book.
Mary, New York, NY
What an extraordinary home this is! Everything was exactly as described by Stephanie & Robert; the only surprises were pleasant ones. We especially loved the well equipped kitchens, the ultra comfortable beds, the tasteful decorating, and all the other things already mentioned in prior comments by others. The very nicest part was the way we were treated by Stephanie & Robert; they made us feel like valued friends. We won't hesitate to return again and again. Our stay was a Blessing to us and our family. Thank you so very much.
-Jan & Gary, Mt. Prospect, IL
We wanted to spend our vacation with my family, and this was the most perfect house to do it in. It easily accommodated 6 adults, and three kids (9 mos, 1 year, and almost 3). Everyone had something to do, and enough space to be alone if wanted. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything, including the sippy cups for the kids (that was a pleasant surprise), the house even has a grill, and the grocery store is less than 5 minutes away.
The house didn't disappoint us on any level, it has everything that was promised and more. Next time we'll know to bring less clothes (the washing machines are fast and efficient), less toys, books, dishes and blankets for the kids (they are fully stocked). This way we won't have to buy an extra bag for all the stuff we bought in town, which has an amazing toy store, and lots of fun shops for adults as well.
While I am not good with words, and can't adequately describe just how wonderful our vacation was, I can't imagine ANYONE being dissatisfied with White Stone Lake Manor
-Oksana, Houston, TX
Our extended family (13 in all) had a wonderful stay at this home. We were especially taken with the lake filled with fish (the kids loved to watch them and the adults loved watching the kingfisher and heron eat), the massage chair, and the spices and basic cooking ingredients that were already present. This allowed us to cook our usual dishes without buying extra basics. The location was central to many hikes and waterfalls of varying degrees of difficulty. The electronics (playstation, DVD and VHS players) were a favorite of the kids. The front yard was large enough to put up a badmitten net and play. We recommend this home highly!
-Mary, Roanoke, VA
This property was absolutely perfect for our family reunion. 4 families with kids plus 2 adults w/o kids gave us 10 adults and 9 kids total which the house handled perfectly. There were plenty of TVs to go around and the PlayStation2, Foosball, and other kids amenities kept everybody busy. The huge backyard was a nice bonus which gave us lots of outdoor options as well including frisbee, football, baseball, and lacrosse. We even had an Olympics-style competition with the other two large families who stayed nearby and a huge bbq with everybody, 40 people in all. The house easily accommodated everyone. We highly recommend this property and would definitely stay here again.
-The Hardy Family, Raleigh, NC
One could not ask for better hosts than you were to us at our recent stay at White Stone Lake Manor. Your home has everything anyone could need to make for an enjoyable stay. So peaceful and quiet and yet close to all the places of interest in the Asheville area. We had an exceptional time at your home.
-The Wilsons, Orlando, FL
All of us had a wonderful time thanks to your accommodations that we so thoroughly enjoyed last week. Everything in print about the house came true and our experiences we had with each other last week was memorable due to the environment you provided.
(it's unfortunate you do not have homes in other parts of the country we could visit !!)
THANKS AGAIN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
-The Foleys, Mishawaka, IN
Stephanie and Robert:
What a wonderful retreat you have created here. What a beautiful home-inside and out! We saw herons-big and small, muskrats, blue birds, muskovey duck, white squirrel, and even some birds we didn't know. The pond & wildlife have been a joy every morning for me. We had a wonderful time and hope to come back and visit in the future. Thank you!
-The King Family, Fairfield & Cincinnati, OH
We came to Asheville for a family wedding and were beyond pleased with our stay at this wonderful property. With our most valued friends and family traveling from all over the country, it was such a joy to accommodate them with such beauty, comfort, style & class...from the scenery to the exquisite linens. We can't express enough how amazing an impression this experience has made. Thank you so much for making such a special time even more so.
PS Be on the look-out for a BEAUTIFUL albino squirrel we saw towards the back side of the pond. Pure white. Hope it brings the future residents as much joy as it brought us! Best Wishes!!
-The Auwater Family, Mooresville NC
Stephanie & Robert
Thank you so much for all of your flexibility. We truly enjoyed our stay in your home. I could simply move my clothes in and live happily ever after. Everything is absolutely beautiful and luxurious. You really have thought of everything. Job well done!!
The girls love the playset outside. We spent most of our time out there.
We had a wonderful time in downtown Hendersonville, pleased by how close we were. Love the shops!! Everything was amazing. Thanks again!
The Biegner Family, Pembroke Pines, FL
Mucho Kudos to you both for making this house so fabulous! True southern hospitality oozes from every corner. Thank you for thinking of everything! This house is a vacation all by itself. See you next year. Charles, Margaret, Savannah (3 years) & Alex (19 mos.)
P.S. The washer & dryer kick butt! Charles is buying me a set when we get home!
P.S.S. Charles loves the grill-guess I'll be buying one of those for him....
-The Alstons, Jacksonville FL
The 14 of us enjoyed our stay in your lovely home! The care you took in selecting all the furnishings, linens, blankets, kitchen ware and decor made this vacation one where we didn't "want" for anything much more. We felt pampered with all the "niceties" you include.
The wildlife out back were fun to watch - even a mama duck and her brand new baby ducklings visited after the Friday afternoon rain showers. We enjoyed eating breakfast on the Deck - nice and refreshing spot to start the day. And the grill made "quick work" of two meals we prepared this week. Thank you for your hospitality!
P.S. We must find out where you bought those wonderful "fuzzy" blankies in all the pretty colors! Our kids fell in love with them!
-Davis Family, GA
We are 4 generations who vacationed at your fabulous home! There was ample room for all four couples and our kids (ages 1 to 12 years) who were never bored the entire week! They loved the playroom, the hot tub, the pond, the softy blankets, the toys/games and the foosball table. The grown up kids (the men!) loved the BIG screen TV and the video games!
Everything we needed, you had thoughtfully provided. The home went way beyond our expectations of quality and amenities. Thank you being such kind and generous hosts.
Here's what I loved:
The massage chair
The extremely comfortable beds (you definitely splurged on quality!)
The sound proofing between the floors!
The high chair, playpen & stroller for the baby
The high tech washer & dryer (wow - double the capacity of mine at home...I'm getting one for myself!)
We will definitely be back for our next family reunion. The location is ideal to get to all the sights and activities of the area. Thanks for the directions and local information.
- Fox Family, TX
We are in love with your wonderful home! The White Stone Lake Manor is far beyond our expectations! We knew it would be quite nice, but had no idea how spectacular it really is! We are so impressed with all the attention to detail and the incredible thought that has gone into making this the best vacation home our family has ever visited! It is elegant, comfortable, lush & soft bedding, beautiful artwork and lamps, elegant bath rooms, kitchens have absolutely everything we need. I want to hire you as my interior decorator!
I adore that you thought of all age groups! The young ones were thrilled with the playhouse and all the toys. Our teens got right into playing Foosball and video games. The rest of us were mesmerized by the big screen HDTV (wow!), the really amazing hot tub, not to mention the massage chair! I appreciate all the various conversation areas throughout the home where we could have private relaxed time to get caught up on the year's events. Like I said, you thought of all our needs and then some!
You created a great outdoor area with all the decks, picnic tables and walk area around the pond. The kids spent hours outside enjoying the fresh air and sunshine. I just can't truly express how grateful our family is to have found such an amazing home to spend our family reunion! We've been to many places over the years and this surpasses any home or 5 star hotel we've ever visited! We'll definitely be back! Thank you so much for all you've done!
-Wilson Family & McGraw Family: NJ, SC, LA,
We had a wonderful time, and the house worked out beautifully for our group, which included six children, all ages three and under. We were really impressed with how well-stocked the house was with things such as lawn chairs, small kitchen appliances, dinnerware...the list goes on. It's easy to see that a lot of thought is given to these details. Everything was clearly labeled and easy to find. We appreciated how clean the house was when we arrived. The layout was also great and allowed for each of our four families to have it's own space. And the bedding and mattresses were to die for! We were only a couple of a mile from a first class grocery store as well, which was really helpful. Hendersonville is a great little town with a very walkable downtown. And Asheville was an easy trip too. Our group highly recommends this house!
-Beth, Houston, TX
The attention to detail was truly impressive - everything to make us feel at home! The yard is exquisite! Our little ones never wanted to leave the property to do any sight seeing, hiking, etc. They all cried when our week was up. There were 12 in our group and we had plenty of room in the house. The appliances were state-of-the-art and the furniture comfortable with enough seating for all. I cannot think of a single concern we experienced - it was heaven!
-The Greenwoods, American Fork, UT
What a wonderful place! We had a wonderful time while staying here, not only was the house full of amenities that made all of us so comfortable, the whole place, the house, yard, wildlife, and lake, brings such a feeling of peace and serenity! I would stay here again anytime! As a matter of fact, I won't be renting from anyone else!! An A++++ rating all the way!
-The Gillis Family, Tampa, FL
What a wonderful house! We had 18 people from 5 different states and we all had a great time. It was such an asset to have 2 kitchens so we could cook and feed the clan. What a pleasure it was to have such a comfortable place to return to after horseback riding, hiking, antiquing, shopping and more. Many of us went to the Biltmore and it certainly was an added bonus to be able to get the tickets through you and have them waiting at the house for us when we arrived. The other nice thing about the house is that it was located near both Hendersonville and Asheville, allowing us to enjoy both; which we did. If you have a big group with varied interests and ages, this is definitely the place to stay.
-The Whiting Family, 5 States
We had three families with a six kids at the Manor for a week and had a fabulous time. The owners have everything extremely well organized with all the amenities you can imagine and everything is well documented with various books and notes. The house is very comfortable and all sheets, towels, kitchen items are first class. It got to the point that the kids never wanted to leave the house to explore the area! It is a great house and we had a relaxing week. I would highly recommend this property to anyone wanting to stay in the Asheville area.
