Description of the Asheville vacation home rental
Why stay in the mountains and not enjoy exquisite long range views from every window. Beautiful sunsets every night give visitors a breathtaking experience from a 3100 ft. elevation. Nestled on a mountain between Hendersonville, Asheville and Lake Lure; this luxurious mountain retreat is conveniently located only 20 minutes from their downtown areas.
From the moment you walk into this incredible escape; you will appreciate the elegantly appointed features including vaulted ceilings, hardwood/slate flooring, rare riverbed granite countertops and locally crafted mountain laurel railings throughout the main level. The open floorplan is designed to gather friends and family around the floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace for good conversation and connection while enjoying the 6 foot tall window views of the mountain ranges all around. The TV viewing room is behind closed (or open) doors and boasts a Bose system, 48' Samsung TV, wireless internet and comfy, oversized chairs and ottomans for relaxing with the remote. Also available in this large room is a large desk and credenza. Start your day with breakfast in the tree house dining area, perched high up in the woods and adjacent to the custom kitchen. Views all around the room along with a beaded wood ceiling give an open feeling in addition to the door leading to the expansive outside deck. The main level deck is perfect for watching the magnificent sunsets. You will feel as if you can reach out and touch the sun as it is setting directly in front of you. With a gas line into the grill and lots of seating on the deck; enjoy dinner and conversation with your loved ones.
The main level is home to the master suite; an oversized king bedroom custom crafted by artisans in the area define the luxury part of the home. Bathe in the jetted bathtub or shower in the cave while viewing the foliage outdoors.
Take a trip down stairs to the lower level and you will be met with high ceilings and a feeling of warmth. The expansive lower deck is off the family room through two sets of French doors at either side of the fireplace. This gathering room is furnished in casual, comfortable sofas and perfect for watching your favorite programs on TV or DVD.
A quiet, comfy bed room fit for a queen is strategically located to the right of the family room. Wake up to beautiful mountain views and enjoy the pillow top queen bed that is so cozy you won't want to leave it or enjoy reading across the room on a sleek and comfortable armless chair.
The bathroom hosts a beautiful uniquely designed garden tub and an exceptionally large shower. Plus, all toilets in this home are privately enclosed. Take advantage of the large bathtub that's big enough for several kids or a romantic couple.
The perfect place for kids is found in the spacious third bedroom; i.e. bunk house!

Area Info
Welcome to my listing! I am a former corporate executive who has spent more than enough years on the road traveling for a living. I always knew that I would realize my dream of living in the mountains someday. As a grandmother to 5, I wanted to be closer to my family and they all live within a few hours away. I actually built this custom home to my exact specifications and it became a relaxing retreat for my family and friends. I am now downsizing my living arrangements and want to offer this retreat for others to enjoy!

After spending a year in the area and searching for the best location to 'lay down roots'; I found this property with my daughter. After walking the land, I immediately felt a sense of the history of this acreage and upon further research, I found that the Civil War was fought around here. The book that described the land and the area is named: The Secret of War by Terrell Garren. This is the story of his family lineage and many of the grave stones in the nearby cemetery bear his family name. You can 'feel' the history of this property.

This home is located on 3 acres of wooded land within 8 privately owned acreage. With few neighbors; the feeling of peace and harmony resonate all around the inside and outside areas. Sitting on the deck(s) with a glass of wine or a cup of coffee is heavenly!

Sandi, we had a great Thanksgiving week at your lovely home. Your kitchen had everything we needed when we cooked and we so appreciated your 'open kitchen' policy as we needed several spices and oils. We at in Asheville a few times too. Our mistake was not staying longer! Gratefully, The McGillick Family

Sandi, we enjoyed staying in your house on our overnight girls trip to the Biltmore. We are all mom's who enjoyed the peace and quiet of the mountains and fellowship by the fire place! Love in Christ, Melinda, Kelly, Kristen, Rachel, Becky and Martha
