“Home from home with added perks!”   

What a wonderful lodge. We had a fantastic 9 night stay in this homely, clean, well maintained ideally situated lodge. We totally felt spoilt from the moment we walked in the door until we left. This home is well situated close to Hendersonville town and close to various attractions. We wanted a relaxing stay after touring therefore didn't take advantage of many attractions but did visit Chimney Rock, shopping in Ashville and Hendersonville, took scenic drives through blue ridge.
Lovely meals had in the Outback. Would recommend this rental lodge to anyone who wants a home from home, with perks! Sauna was fab and the massage chair such a treat! A huge thank you to Stephanie for making it possible for us to share your beautiful home. Will definitely hope to come back in the future.

“Warm and inviting”  

When we first pulled up to the property our first words were wow! When we drove up and went inside, it was absolutely breathtaking! The lights were all on and provided a warm glow against the hominess of the wood decor inside. It was like coming home. We are from Marshall and come home every September for homecoming on the Lewis Branch in Madison County. Your beautiful home made our visit together memorable. Everything we needed was furnished inside the home. (my brother lost a screw from his glasses and we even found a replacement screw and small screwdriver in the drawer!) that was magical and saved us a trip to store, as our time was limited and plans for each event was limited! Thank you for making such a memorable stay for our family to be together and having everything we could possibly need on hand!

“A 5 star home at a very reasonable price!!!”   

The home is a very beautiful, spacious, updated property with amenities galore!! The hot tub, grill and accessories, very workable kitchen, wonderful baths and it was hard to get out of bed they were so comfortable and the massage chair in the living area was the most popular pass time. Some of us enjoyed bike rides, others the Biltmore tour (very interesting) and the fall colors were beautiful - and we enjoyed eating at the home together and just visiting with each other. We highly recommend this property and hope others enjoy it as much as we did. It is very clean and well maintained. Definately a 5 star choice!!! Thanks to Stephanie and her home.

“Blown away”  

This home was all we hoped for, but was so much more than we ever imagined. What an awesome place to stay for families, The kitchen has every large, high quality appliance for feeding families and everything cupboard, cabinet and outlet in labeled for easy use. This also includes the enormous washer and drier instructions that were so easy to follow. The owner provides lists of places to see, kid friendly places to see, local restaurants and ones that are open on Thanksgiving and Christmas Day, events in the area, plus directions to all of these places. The beds are very comfortable and the kids room was such a hit with books, stuffed animals, plus family games for all ages. The home is in a great location near large 24 hr. grocery stores, great shopping in all the towns nearby, hiking, fishing, or just sitting on the porch enjoying nature while grilling . The home was very clean, beautifully decorated and was a wonderful home for us for an awesome week. I would recommend this home over and over and over again. We have been here twice and plan on returning real soon....you will not be disappointed...and are available to you if you have any questions on the home. They REALLY do pamper you .

Great Views!   

The pictures don't do it justice! The lake in the morning is beautiful, the rooms are skillfully decorated and the house is huge! Great appliances, fully equipped kitchen big enough to cook for and seat a large group. Ten of us stayed for a five day mountain bike trip and the house was perfect for all of us and the hot tub was a nice feature after biking all day. Better than any hotel and much less expensive for long stays. The drive to downtown Asheville was easy and there are plenty of stores and a gas station in very close proximity yet the house feels secluded and as if you were miles away from the nearest town. Highly recommend.

Homey, comfortable and great for families!  This house is in such a great locatin for families.  With a huge playground outside and downtown within a 15 minute drive you can’t beat it.  Our children LOVED the princess room and reading nook.  Such a great spot for those little ones.

Tranquil privacy near exciting city—best of both!   

Spacious, exquisitely furnished, and the decks with their lovely lake view were AWESOME!  We were beyond impressed with this gracious lake home in such a tranquil location with beautiful forest surroundings.  Mornings had the kids out fishing for breakfast.  Everyone was well entertained with all the amenities….sitting in the hot tub at night, marshmallow roasts at the fire pit, kids’ playground, decks all around the house with plenty of seating, big kitchen with everything we could need, big screen TV, something for all ages.  We loved the Asheville location with its awesome restaurants, shops, golf, Blue Ridge Parkway, Biltmore Estate, waterfalls, rafting, hiking….it’s a great place to explore.  We highly recommended this home!

Family Retreat at Julian Lake Lodge.  

Julian Lake Lodge was a comfortable, very well equipped and maintained vacation retreat. The owner thought of everything we needed to feel at home and pampered. The kitchen was large and easy to navigate and possessed all of the tools needed to prepare a sandwich or a large family meal. The home is kid and pet friendly. We took advantage of many of the area's resources including trips to Asheville, Hendersonville, several parks, the arboretum, golf courses and restaurants. We would highly recommend this property and hope to return in the future.

Perfect spot of a group stay in Asheville.  Family and friends joined us for my daughter's wedding week in Asheville. Convenient, easily accessible from Biltmore area with plenty of room to host others.  This peaceful setting is perfect for any fall weekend. Playground area looked perfect for family with kids. Peaceful - morning coffee on the deck a good start each day.  The house itself was spacious and well stocked with everything needed for a comfortable stay.

Just perfect! HIGHLY RECOMMEND! We had 2 families of 4 + 2 adult friends meet for a wedding in Asheville and the home we rented from Stephanie was just perfect! Love that she thought of details for the kids (crib, high chair, strollers, etc.) and even made sure there were plenty of towels and blankets. We felt secluded and peaceful on the lake, hanging at the house, sitting by the fire pit, but could be in the action of Asheville in minutes! The house was big enough to spread out on the different decks around the house, down by the lake or even in the hot tub! We were even able to enjoy home cooked meals around the large dining room table!

Stephanie really did think of everything - the place was clean, cool and ready for our arrival! The overall feel of the rental was HOMEY!

Great for our destination girls trip! We had a great time in Asheville and this house had everything we needed. A great home for relaxing and catching up around the fire pit, decks or hot tub. We BBQ'd one night, watched movies on a rainy day from the fully stocked library and the kitchen had everything we needed. The owner Stephanie was attentive & accommodating. Thank you Stephanie we enjoyed our stay!

Kid Friendly and Great Jumping Off Point For Area!

Picking a house sight-unseen was nerve wracking, and I am happy to say that Stephanie's claims of spoiling her guests lived up to the hype. We had 8 adults and 6 kids, three of them toddlers. The house could not have been better for them. They loved the "kid bedroom" and played in it constantly. There was easy access from the downstairs to the 8-person hot tub which sat next to the playground and firepit. The smooth layout of the house was a savior when entertaining that many children and still relaxing ourselves.

The house itself was very comfortable and felt more like staying with relatives than renting. I especially appreciated the comfortable beds, because I have rented houses where bed comfort was obviously not considered. The kitchen is large, modern, and has all the essential appliances and dishes, and then some. The open floor plan makes it easy to hang out. The massage chair and many TVs with cable were nice bonuses!

We spent our time day-tripping to Dupont Forest, Pisgah Forest, and going into downtown Asheville, which is indeed an easy 10 minute straight drive. It was conveniently located for all these places, and for grocery stores.
Thank you, Stephanie, for your hospitality and we definitely recommend this house.
- The Bradshaws, Frankfort, KY

A wonderful week in a wonderful house! The house was in a quiet spot surrounded by trees and looking out on the lake. It accommodated our party of 7 adults and 2 young children perfectly. The first floor was set up for children and their parents with a private laundry, refrigerator and television as well as toys and a cute hiding place in the children's bedroom. Upstairs were three large adult bedrooms and a kitchen that was furnished with everything we needed to cook for our group. The outside space had a playground, a hot tub that our children called "the pool" and a fire pit we used to roast hot dogs and marshmallows. The house is near grocery stores, restaurants most of Asheville's activities. We could not have asked for more!

Comfortable, great amenities, beautiful view.  We loved Stephanie's Julian Lake Lodge. It is spacious and comfortable, clean and well-maintained. We enjoyed the amenities, including the spa, fire pit and playground for the kids. The lake view is fantastic. We will definitely recommend this home to our friends.
