Description from manager

Follow the stone-laid path & step into your own personal fairytale at Creston Manor, a spellbinding home duo nestled deep within the enchanted forests of the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains.

Located within the upscale and gated community of Creston just south of Black Mountain, this ultra-private vacation estate sits at the end of a cul-de-sac behind its own additional private gate. Surrounded by 330+ acres of protected land within the community which connects to thousands of acres of Pisgah National Forest and Foothills Land Conservancy property, you can sit on the covered deck and listen to the sounds of the waterfalls down below, or even hike down to them using the trail systems within the community. Exquisitely crafted, Creston Manor features high end finishes, vaulted ceilings, lots of covered decks and patios, real stone, and board & batten siding between the two homes, and there is ample flat parking for guests.

The main home, a stone A-frame cottage resembling that of the gingerbread house from Hansel and Gretel, will beckon you to the covered back deck to relax in the handcrafted gliders as you enjoy the idyllic postcard view of the sun setting behind the towering mountain peaks that span as far as the eye can see. As evening falls, linger to take in the grand and unobstructed view of the stars and mountains blanketed in moonlight before heading inside to craft a delicious meal in the fully-stocked kitchen complete with stainless appliances, smooth surface stove, and farmhouse sink. After dinner, cozy up around the gas fireplace while you stream your favorite movie before heading back outside to enjoy s’mores around the outdoor fire pit.

In the morning, bask in the sunshine streaming through the windows before stepping out onto the downstairs patio to feel the cool breeze on your face as you sway in the suspended swing and sip your coffee. Enjoy a tasty breakfast of pancakes with fruit and a fresh mimosa on the screened-in porch before heading inside to take advantage of the connected desk area in the downstairs bedroom or exercise your brain muscles with a round of chess to round out your morning. Just 20 minutes from the charming town of Black Mountain, you can spend the day walking through the quaint streets of downtown, before stopping to enjoy an exceptionally fresh, signature wood-fired pizza like the Fun Guy or Drunken Clam at FRESH, or have a cheesy Firebird Melt and Devil’s Foot craft soda on the open-air patio of local favorite, Open Oven Coffee + Bakery.

On the days when you’re seeking a bustling & high energy experience, travel to the creative & eccentric city of Asheville just under 40 minutes away. Both Black Mountain & Asheville offer a number of art galleries, high end boutiques, novelty shops, and award-winning breweries guaranteed to keep you entertained for hours on end. Asheville is also an outdoor mecca filled with opportunities to experience the glorious seasons & towering Blue Ridge Mountains that make WNC a sought after destination. Glide over rushing river rapids, skirt the treetops on a zipline, or hike the rugged balds at Black Balsam & Graveyard Fields. On those inevitably rainy days, take it easy and spend time reading on the screened-in porch at the guest house or warming up around the woodstove and watching a movie in the living room. Complete with wood detail, handcrafted built-in beds, and sliding barn doors, the guest house resembles an upscale summer camp tucked deep within the pines.

Comprising a main house & guest house that rent together, Creston Manor is perfect for couples traveling together or individual couples seeking a private & gorgeous mountain honeymoon or a reunion with two different families with children & pets traveling together. Combining the charming & cozy ambiance of a cottage in the woods with the luxurious & opulent features of an elegant manor, this gorgeous home duo is worthy of a Hans Christian Anderson fairytale!
