Outdoor enthusiasts will love the laid back, comfortable, atmosphere of our family-friendly home. Whether you're hitting the Bent Creek national forest trails across the street, shopping at the nearby outlets, enjoying downtown AVL, or grilling while the kids enjoy the swings, zipline, playhouse, climbing wall and sandbox, this home's convenient location will satisfy everyone. 10 min to popular W Avl, 15 min to downtown. We welcome people from all walks of life and their well behaved pets.
With 3 bedrooms upstairs and 2 full baths, there is space for everyone. The first floor is recently renovated with reclaimed heart pine floors, custom trim and built-ins, and new appliances. One of the two living room sofas converts into a comfortable full size bed (it's Ikea and pretty comfortable!). The kitchen is stocked with everything you could need and more. Linens and towels are provided. You may want to bring beach towels for creek play, nearby Lake Powhatan, the splash park downtown, or one of the many mountain swimming holes.
Just steps from the front door you'll be greeted by a trail access point that crosses a rushing creek and leads into 500,000 acres of Pisgah National Forest with hundreds of miles of trails in the popular Bent Creek Experimental Forest, home of spectacular single-track mountain biking, hiking and trail running. You can stay close, taking our neighborhood trails to the community park with a family-friendly pump track or venture deeper into the forest to Lake Powhatan, the Bent Creek trails, the Blue Ridge Parkway (~2mi), or the NC Arboretum.
In July and August you can enjoy the blueberries from the 6 enormous 20 yr old bushes on the property. They are chemical-free, abundant and delicious.
12 minutes to Biltmore Estate and Historic Biltmore Village. 5 minutes to Asheville Outlets.
While we'd love to meet our guests we will likely be traveling ourselves and will be reachable via phone or email. We are happy to help with anything that might come up during your stay.
There is one step onto the porch and another step into the front door.
There is an Xbox 360 to enjoy.
We do not have cable but do have Chromecast so you can use your Netflix, ESPN, etc and cast it to the television.
Cell phone service is spotty on our property. Texts will work inside the house while calls may require you to be outside. US Cellular works great and all other carriers work just up the street at the top of the hill. You may want to install a WiFi calling app like we did to solve that problem.
This is our family home. It will be clean and ready for your visit and it is loved by our own four children so you won't find any breakable knickknacks to worry about. You will have use of most of the closets. The garage is not available and there is one locked room on the first floor of the house. It is off to the side and does not impact the flow at all.
