"Mountain getaway with the kids" After a full day of touring Biltmore or rafting or caving or tubing or mining we would ask the kids what they wanted to do and they always said "Go Home!" That is what Lodge truely felt to us, like home. Everything we needed was there, from toys and games to entertain the kids to wine glasses and the wonderful hottub. The house was so spatious we never felt cramped. There was plenty of towels, dishes and all the little extra's that came in so handy. Like spices, tuperware containers, the ice maker and sandwich bags for our picnic lunches. The interior was decorated so beautifuly, I picked up a few ideas to use in my own home. My favorite thing was having coffee every morning on the porch listening to the nature all around. Thanks for the memories.

My son's wedding at The Biltmore---------------a horse drawn carriage delivering a beautiful bride, a spectacular fireworks show, an awesome band, dancing the night away and going home to Mountain Laurel Lodge-------------perfect. The Lodge is spacious with wonderful beds, linens, and towels. The kitchen has top of the line appliances, dishes, spices, and cooking utensils, which made entertaining out of state guests with a wedding morning brunch easy. The babies were easy to accommodate with a crib, pack and play, bathtub, gates, playroom with toys, and playground. The TV made watching our prewedding college football game great. (our favorite team won just to enhance our big day!) Stephanie thought of everything, even flashlights! And of course, the hot tub and wine in this private setting added to our enjoyment!

"Relax and Enjoy!"   

My sister and our two sisters-in-law started an annual "sisters" trip last year. For our second trip we decided on asheville. After reviewing many properties in the asheville area, we chose the Lodge. The house was great! Very spacious; we each has our own bedroom- so much better than sharing two hotel rooms. The house was in a beautiful wooded setting. We loved getting up (late) each morning and drinking our coffee out on the back porch, listening to all kinds of nature sounds. Some evenings we relaxed with wine and cheese on the front porch. The house was well equipped with paper products, kitchen ware (including 2 coffee pots), plenty of towels, Dvd's, Tv's in every room, books and games. Overall it was a very comfortable and relaxing experience.

"Great Girls Getaway"   

We booked this home for a 40th birthday girls weekend. It was spectacular. The home is beautiful and spacious and was far more economical that getting 3 or 4 hotel rooms. We enjoyed the hot tub every evening and took advantage of purchasing tickets for the Biltmore estate from the owners. That in itself was a great deal - we got 2 days for the price of one including the wine tasting! Stephanie was amazing. We had an emergency our last day there and we called her at 5am to find the nearest hospital. She was incredibly sweet helping us out even though we called at such an ungodly hour. We are all talking about coming back with our families. We didn't bring kids this trip, but the kid room is super cute and I know my kids would love it! I would highly recommend this property to anyone visiting the asheville area!!

"Many Thanks for Four Wonderful Days..."   

We just got back from a magical four-day reunion of three army buddies who used to be lieutenants and roommates in Heidelberg, Germany...44 years ago!! Our wives have accompanied us on our last four get-togethers and pretend to listen to our war stories while they plot their next shopping trip... the Lodge is fabulous, and lives up to every expectation. It is well appointed, spacious, and well supplied with cookware and tableware to handle just about any crowd. We had a fabulous time there!! We purposely came to ashville in December to tour the Biltmore Mansion, which was spectacularly decorated, just as we expected.

"Great kid friendly vacation house!"   

I just got back from a fantastic stay at the Lodge and I can't say enough what a wonderful time we had. The house is perfect for families or groups with children to get away, as it comes equipped with plenty of toys, games, and supplies (baby gates, high chair, etc.). With the luxurious beds, hot tub, and full kitchen, the house is also great for adults. Can't wait to stay there again in the future!

"It was the perfect vacation home and everyone was happy!"  

We enjoyed our stay at your beautiful home in it's beautiful location. We are a family with 7 adults and one 6 month old. Everyone was happy. The home was fully equipped - games, movies, every kitchen gadget and tool that we needed. The baby had everything she needed - stroller, highchair, bath. And much more!
The owners were very responsive to our needs.   I specifically enjoyed watching the birds build a nest in the wreath that is outside on another deck. I had never seen a white squirrel before this trip, either.   We would definitely return to this vacation rental.

"It was an experience that satisfied every age group in our party!"  

we all returned home safely with fond memories of our visit to asheville/hendersonville area.
the location of the lodge enable us to appreciate the many activities in the area. "sliding rock" was a big hit, 'looking glass falls" on our return trip, golf, bowling and other activities.
we were impressed with the lodge. everything you possibly need was available. the message chair and the hot tub were very popular, also the front and back deck area. we'd gather there,in the evening, for a drink or two. it was great fun.
the fireworks, for the 4th of july, were spectacular and our overall experience of the festivities was great.
i could go on forever, but the conclusion was that because of all the emenities and the comfort that the lodge offered, made our visit very enjoyable.
thank you.

"Great for a large group!"
We had a wonderful time at this lovely and leafy retreat. Beautiful large trees surround property. The kitchen has it all (even though we barely had time to cook). The location is great with easy access to Asheville and Hendersonville and attractions. Our two granddaughters loved the kid's room. Tons of T.V.'s.  Great amenities!

Great house, great location, great for those with kids!
We stayed at the Lodge for 5 days - the weather was absolutely perfect and it was a great time of year to visit the Asheville area. The house was really great! There were two couples and three kids, so the adults took the upper floor and the kids were downstairs. The house has lots of things for kids (playground, high chairs, strollers, cribs, infant bathtub, etc). And the kitchen has lots of things not normally stocked in a rental home (spices, sandwich bags, etc). It felt like we were renting someone's home instead of someone's vacation house, which was really nice. House was very clean. We were down there for a vet conference as well as to mountain bike, and the house is pretty close to the Pisgah / Black Mountain area, as well as Dupont State Forest. Hundreds of miles of trails within 20 minutes of the house. Couldn't have asked for a better trip - wouldn't hesitate to stay at the Lodge again!

"Beyond our Hopes!"  

We booked this home because of the "children friendly" description. We were wrong--It was far beyond what we hoped it would be! There is not one detail overlooked to make this beautiful and extremely comfortable for both big and little people. We had 6 adults and 5 children (ages 6 to 9 months) and all of us had a wonderful time. The kids loved the playground and playroom, the adults loved the hot tub, entertainment equipment, and enough comfortable bedrooms that they did not have to share with their kids. The kitchen had everything one would want. By the way, the white squirrels really do exist and are exciting to spot. Like us, you will not be disappointed with staying there.
