I am honored to be among the first to recommend this fabulous lodge!  We were absolutely delighted with this newest vacation home you created that was ready just in time for our summer 2010 family vacation week.  Over the past 5 years, my husband and I have enjoyed your sweet little Joy Chalet, and our adult kids have stayed with us at your Dream and Rose vacation houses.  This year we included the grand kids and stayed at your absolutely amazing 5 bedroom lodge!    


I can’t begin to express the incredible beauty of the home and its lush forest location! We spent hours outside on the decks relaxing on the very comfortable patio furniture just enjoying the peace and quiet. What a convenient location for exploring the area….it was just a few minutes to downtown and the Biltmore House (always a treat to visit!). 


Your decorating taste is impeccable….the furniture is beautiful yet very comfortable. I love the furry soft throws you use at your homes.  We lacked for nothing!  The king and queen beds are the BEST we’ve ever slept on….we sleep better at your home than at ours!  Great TV’s were everywhere and we were quite impressed with the huge movie library.   


True to your word, you DO know how to spoil your guests and you thought of every little thing we could possibly need.  The hot tub and massage chair were a hit with everyone and the grandkids spent hours hiking in the woods,  playing on the outdoor playground set and in the kids playroom and with the air hockey & foosball tables.  Never once did they come to us asking to be entertained!   


We ate most of our meals in and found the kitchen extremely well stocked with everything we needed.  Beautiful dishes too.  We appreciate you included the children’s non-breakable dishes as well.   


We highly recommend this home to everyone! You will not be disappointed! We’ll definitely be back!

We just got back from a wonderful stay at this property and I would recommend it highly. The home is gorgeous and well-stocked with entertaining activities from HD TV, a cabinet of DVDs, an air hockey table, and even "old school" board games! Fun for the whole family. My husband and children particularly loved the massage chair, located in the living room. I would recommend this property for parents with children, couples and retirees. Home is only 20 minutes from the Biltmore Estate and we recommend a visit. In summary - our 10 yr old, walked in, examined the house for a while, saw the "kids suite" he'd be sleeping in, saw all of the fun activities and announced "Best House Ever!" ha ha

Your Lodge was a fabulous place for our family reunion! I love the photos on your website, but they did not begin to do justice to how really spectacular this home is and in such a green, peaceful setting! Thank you so much for allowing us to be one of your firsts guests here. There was plenty room for all of us, the bedrooms being so separately spaced gave us the privacy we needed and the kids loved their playroom and outdoor playground. Even though the lodge is very private, it was still very close to all the area activities we enjoyed….the Biltmore House, the Blueridge Parkway, Chimney Rock, DuPont State Park (amazing waterfalls!) and we even explored the trails behind the lodge.  


You certainly thought of every little thing we could possibly need and then some!  Loved the plush beds, the massage chair, hot tub, the covered decks for great lounging & visiting.  Good job!  We’ll definitely reserve the home for this fall to see the leaf colors.

As with all your homes that we’ve stayed at over the years, your new Lodge meets all we had hoped for and more! That’s saying a lot since your homes excel with super comfort, gorgeous furnishings, plenty to entertain both adults and kids. This time we came with 3 other couples for a week of relaxation and golf. It was great to come home to the hot tub, massage chair and extremely comfortable beds! Great kitchen…so well stocked with everything my husband, the gourmet chef, needs for cooking for us. That’s another reason we stay at your homes! 


Our blessings to you, Robert and Stephanie.  Thanks for being such gracious hosts and taking care of our every need.   

- Sue & Justin – Atlanta, GA   



This is our first time to Western North Carolina and now we want to move here!  The beauty of the mountains and greenery everywhere was refreshing and life-giving!  Wow!  What a wonderful setting your home is in....so quiet and private.  Our stay could not have been better!  Anything we needed was there and the furnishings and interior design was exceptional.  We’ve traveled extensively and stayed at many vacation homes and this is the best home by far!  

- The Fields family,  Phoenix AZ   


It was a last minute decision to come to the mountains and we were ever so grateful that your home was available. We have never felt so pampered! The Lodge is huge and every inch has been thoughtfully decorated. I was so inspired by the decorating ideas that I took loads of pictures so I can duplicate some of it in my own home! This home is comfortable and plenty of room for a large family.  

Stephanie was a gracious host and saw to our every need. She even arranged to have Biltmore tickets waiting in the home when we arrived. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your very welcoming home.

Thank you for letting us stay here.  We have thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful house, the porches, the hot tub and the kitchen.  All the bedrooms and the rest of the house are very well furnished in a nice, practical and thoughtful way.  Thank you again.  We hope to visit again.  Blessings on you and this home.

Hi Stephanie

Truly a fabulous venue.  Nothing lacking, nothing wanting.  The home is perfect!  There is a world of things to do in this area.  After the Biltmore Estate experience, we really enjoyed the Brevard/DuPont Forest area with tubing and all the great falls, swimming, hiking, viewing an amazing sequence of falls.  Cradle of Forestry, fun Bar-B-Que and ice cream offerings!  And of course, Chimney Rock and Lake Lure.  Thanks from the 10 of us!

-the Gregory family, FL


Three generations of our family came from Boston, MA, Fairfax, VA and Chicago, IL to visit a part of the country that represents our heritage.  As descendants of the Penlands and Thomas Wolfe--we visited the Penland School of Arts & Crafts as well as the Thomas Wolfe "Old Kentucky Home" in Asheville, NC.  It was a delightful experience.  This lovely home was so welcoming and warm.  We hope to repeat this trip again.

"Priceless Memories in asheville!"  

I would enthusiastically recommend this home to anyone looking for a vacation home in asheville. The kitchen had everything we needed from spices to every appliance you would need. The beds were sooo comfortable and the bedrooms were situated so that everyone had separate sleeping quarters. We enjoyed all of the books, travel information and Dvd's. The hot tub was very clean and appreciated the kit provided with the instructions to ensure the tub was ready for use. The flower gardens, albino squirrels, porches and outdoor play areas for my grandchildren were very enjoyable!  My granddaughters loved the books, stuffed animals, and all of the beds in the playroom. The foosball game became a daily competition between my granddaughter and grandpa. We also enjoyed the games provided- twister and scrabble especially. We all had an amazing stay with priceless memories at a very comfortable home. Thank you for sharing your lovely home!
