  • Very nice


    This house was perfect for our needs and accommodated our family quite nicely. We enjoyed time on both front and back porches. Slept well on the firm mattress/beds. This house had everything we needed and we look forward to future stays.

    We enjoyed our stay here. The view was awesome and the house was cozy and quiet. It was well stocked for our needs. The decor was beautiful and simple, furniture and beds were comfortable as well. We would stay here again in the future.

    This property is exactly as described, and was the cleanest rental I've ever stayed in. The mattresses are comfy too! Some curtains on the bedroom windows to help filter the bright morning light would be great so guests can sleep in. The rental has everything you could need. The views off the front porch are stunning!

    The location was perfect for our needs, which was visiting family in Leicester. Centrally located between Asheville and Marshall, and close to Weaverville and I-40 as well. If you want peace and quiet, but within about 20+ minutes from the action, this is a great choice!

    We would stay here again!

    I recently stayed at this home in Leicester, NC, and overall, it was a delightful experience. The home's cleanliness was commendable – well-maintained and spotless, providing a comfortable and hygienic environment. The listing accurately represented the property; what you see is indeed what you get. The amenities and supplies were thoughtfully provided, making the stay convenient and enjoyable.

    One notable aspect of this rental is its proximity to Asheville, making it an excellent choice for those wanting to explore the vibrant city. The drive to Asheville was convenient, allowing for easy access to its attractions, dining, and cultural offerings. Additionally, the property's location in Leicester offers a peaceful retreat, providing a balance between the bustling city life and the tranquility of the surrounding areas. Whether you're looking for a relaxing getaway or a base to explore the region, this rental property offers a well-rounded experience with a comfortable home and convenient access to nearby attractions.
