    I came to Apple of the Hill with my 2 daughters. We found the house to be very homey. It reminded us of our grandparents home. The upgrades were lovely as well. I will definitely recommend your home to my family and friends

  • Cozy, yet spacious


    We were instantly comfortable in this cozy, yet spacious 'temporary' home. It may remind you of being at your grandmothers, like it did for me. Three adults were not crowded, even with one bath, bc the second vanity/sink was a thoughtful addition. I can't think of one thing we needed that wasn't available. We would definitely consider another stay here.

  • Would definitely stay here again!


    Great location - close to Asheville, easy walk to downtown Mars Hill, and quick (5 minute drive) to a great hike in Mars Hill. The house was very clean and had all that we needed - even welcome snacks and waters! While we were initially concerned about just having one bathroom with our two adult children, having the additional vanity outside the bathroom made it a non-issue! We loved our time as a guest in this house, and would definitely go back! Highly recommend!
