  • Secluded and Surrounded by Nature


    We enjoyed our short stay in "The Red Loft". It was clean, comfortable, well-stocked, and only a 20 minute drive to Asheville. We particularly enjoyed watching the birds and small wildlife from the screened-in porch. We didn't get any internet or cellphone service, but that was part of the charm for us. Highly recommend for a get-away!

  • Lovely little spot for a cozy winter getaway


    This home was the perfect size and location for a weekend getaway to the Asheville area and full of charm with a cozy cabin in the woods vibe. A best of both world spot - close enough to Asheville but also wonderfully rural and really close to the Blue Ridge Parkway. It was very cold when we were there and the gas fireplace was amazing and the house stayed toasty warm. The kitchen was well stocked and everything was spotless. In the summer I’m sure I would have spent many hours on the beautiful front porch swing or on the patio enjoying the gas grill. When we arrived everything was perfect. Edison lights greeted us as did a little Christmas tree and stockings hung by the fireplace. Internet was much appreciate by this city girl and while cell phone service was not great (never is in the mountains) we were able to utilize WiFi calling. Everything was clean and welcoming. A couple of things that kept me from giving it 5 stars overall - the bed in the master bedroom needs replacing and preferably with at least a queen size. Also the living room has a futon as a sofa and it just wasn’t the most comfortable for a fireside hangout. The last suggested improvement would be the towels in the bathroom. These are small things easily overcome and I don’t want to detract from the overall charm of this quaint and cozy mountain getaway. Bonus points for having the same style dishes as my childhood home! A cabin in the woods will always win out for me over a hotel room and this was a great value for a lovely little home. 4 1/2 stars.

    Manager's Response:

    From the owner: "Hi Mary R, thank you for sharing your appreciation of our home. We're so glad to hear you had a wonderful, memorable stay. We take our guest feedback seriously and have taken your suggestion and replaced the full size with a new queen-size bed, that is much more comfortable and looks better, with a plus, it comes without noise. In addition, we will be replacing the futon mattress in the living room in the near future. Thank you again for sharing your feedback and we look forward to hosting you again in the future!"
