  • Great little getaway!!!


    This is our second time staying here. It’s a great location in an up and coming Old Fort City. Very clean place. 900 ft to Hillman Brewery which is a definite plus in our book. Location is primo, between Asheville, Black Mountain, Chimney Rock and any other quaint town in between. We loved it! To quote Arnold Schwarzenegger “ I’ll be back” ❤️

  • 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.
