  • Another nice visit


    This was our second time in the greenhouse and it was great, our kids love the box of miscellaneous toys and books, and we appreciate the reusable plastic dishes and bathroom steps tool for the kids. The creek access was nice on the one day it wasn’t raining! Very family friendly and the host is always responsive to questions.

  • Beautiful home and location


    It really was even more wonderful than it was in the pictures. The river is so beautiful and is close. It is amazing to listen to it. I slept better than I have in quite some time. Only complaint was that it was too short.

  • Good family house


    This is the second time we have stayed here while visiting family in the area, house comes with kid friendly stuff like reusable plastic kids’ dishes, bathroom stool, and box of misc toys/books. The kids love the creek access as well. Easy drive to Black Mountain and Asheville, plus Old Fort has some great local places now. House is always clean and contact is very communicative when we’ve had questions.
