"Promise fulfilled and More!" Seldom do the pictures of a house truly represent what one finds on arrival. In this case the pictures understate reality. The house absolutely lived up to expectations, and more. The layout of the house made it possible for people to have space of their own and to join with others when they wanted to. The grounds - including a pond, an excellent climbing structure, picnic tables in various places, and a large space for running were all inviting and much used. The house itself was outfitted with absolutely everything you could need, with high quality kitchen equipment, very comfortable beds, complete equipment for an infant, and toys and games galore for all ages. Plus it is located not far from the center of asheville, and close to Pisgah National Forest and other wonderful nature adventures. You won't run out of things to do.

We had three families with six kids at the Manor for a week and had a fabulous time. The owners have everything extremely well organized with all the amenities you can imagine and everything is well documented with various books and notes. The house is very comfortable and all sheets, towels, kitchen items are first class. It got to the point that the kids never wanted to leave the house to explore the area! It is a great house and we had a relaxing week. I would highly recommend this property to anyone wanting to stay in the Asheville area.   

-The Hall Family, Bradenton, FL


One could not ask for better hosts than you were to us at our recent stay at White Stone Lake Manor. Your home has everything anyone could need to make for an enjoyable stay. So peaceful and quiet and yet close to all the places of interest in the Asheville area. We had an exceptional time at your home. 

-The Wilsons, Orlando, FL  


This property was absolutely perfect for our family reunion. 4 families with kids plus 2 adults w/o kids gave us 10 adults and 9 kids total which the house handled perfectly. There were plenty of TVs to go around and the PlayStation2, Foosball, and other kids amenities kept everybody busy. The huge backyard was a nice bonus which gave us lots of outdoor options as well including frisbee, football, baseball, and lacrosse. We even had an Olympics-style competition with the other two large families who stayed nearby and a huge bbq with everybody, 40 people in all. The house easily accommodated everyone. We did a reunion two years ago in Lake Tahoe, NV and rented a similar-sized house there but this one just felt bigger. We highly recommend this property and would definitely stay here again. 

-The Hardy Family, Raleigh, NC  


What a wonderful house! We had 18 people from 5 different states and we all had a great time. It was such an asset to have 2 kitchens so we could cook and feed the clan. What a pleasure it was to have such a comfortable place to return to after horseback riding, hiking, antiquing, shopping and more. Many of us went to the Biltmore and it certainly was an added bonus to be able to get the tickets through you and have them waiting at the house for us when we arrived. The other nice thing about the house is that it was located near both Hendersonville and Asheville, allowing us to enjoy both; which we did. If you have a big group with varied interests and ages, this is definitely the place to stay. 

-The Whiting Family, 5 States 


Our extended family (13 in all) had a wonderful stay at this home. We were especially taken with the lake filled with fish (the kids loved to watch them and the adults loved watching the kingfisher and heron eat), the massage chair, and the spices and basic cooking ingredients that were already present. This allowed us to cook our usual dishes without buying extra basics. The location was central to many hikes and waterfalls of varying degrees of difficulty. The electronics (playstation, DVD and VHS players) were a favorite of the kids. The front yard was large enough to put up a badmitten net and play. We recommend this home highly! 

-Mary, Roanoke, VA  


What a wonderful place! We had a wonderful time while staying here, not only was the house full of amenities that made all of us so comfortable, the whole place, the house, yard, wildlife, and lake, brings such a feeling of peace and serenity! I would stay here again anytime! As a matter of fact, I won't be renting from anyone else!! An A++++ rating all the way! 

-The Gillis Family, Tampa, FL  


We wanted to spend our vacation with my family, and this was the most perfect house to do it in. It easily accommodated 6 adults, and three kids (9 mos, 1 year, and almost 3). Everyone had something to do, and enough space to be alone if wanted. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything, including the sippy cups for the kids (that was a pleasant surprise), the house even has a grill, and the grocery store is less than 5 minutes away.  

The house didn't disappoint us on any level, it has everything that was promised and more. Next time we'll know to bring less clothes (the washing machines are fast and efficient), less toys, books, dishes and blankets for the kids (they are fully stocked). This way we won't have to buy an extra bag for all the stuff we bought in town, which has an amazing toy store, and lots of fun shops for adults as well.


While I am not good with words, and can't adequately describe just how wonderful our vacation was, I can't imagine ANYONE being dissatisfied with White Stone Lake Manor 

-Oksana, Houston, TX 


The attention to detail was truly impressive - everything to make us feel at home! The yard is exquisite! Our littles ones never wanted to leave the property to do any sight seeing, hiking, etc. They all cried when our week was up. There were 12 in our group and we had plenty of room in the house. The appliances were state-of-the-art and the furniture comfortable with enough seating for all. I cannot think of a single concern we experienced - it was heaven! 

-The Greenwoods, American Fork, UT 


What an extraordinary home this is! Everything was exactly as described by Stephanie & Robert; the only surprises were pleasant ones. We especially loved the well equipped kitchens, the ultra comfortable beds, the tasteful decorating, and all the other things already mentioned in prior comments by others. The very nicest part was the way were treated by Stephanie & Robert; they made us feel like valued friends. We won't hesitate to return again and again. Our stay in mid September was a Blessing to us and our family. Thank you so very much. 

-Jan & Gary, Mt. Prospect, IL  


Hi, Stephanie. We very much enjoyed our stay and our whole family was very excited to be in a house which was so carefully outfitted for a family with many kids of different ages and desires. (Including at least one "kid" son-in-law who made good and frequent use of the hot tub). Actually, since the weekend weather wasn't so good, it was especially important that there was so much for the kids to do at the house, and that it was clearly set up for them. And for those of us who cooked, the kitchen was so well set up, and we loved the huge refrigerator! And it was great that there were so many towels, etc. So often in a rental you are frustrated by the lack of amenities. That's not at all true in your place.

My brother and his wife who live nearby in Mills River came for dinner on Saturday night and they were astonished at how nice the place was. I am sure they will be recommending it to folks they know who have large families coming to visit. Again, thanks for your hospitality and for the follow up. We'd be happy to put any of this you think would be useful on the on-line guest book.

In July my best friend and I brought our girls (ages 5-13) to North Carolina and stayed at the White Stone Lake Manor. The house was so large it was nice to be able to spread out and get some "alone" space when needed. There was so much to do on property that coming home or staying the day at home was a treat. The hot tub is awesome in the evening and we enjoyed running around the back yard catching fire flies. Stephanie keeps the house well stocked and has signs telling you everything you need to know. I highly recommend staying at this property. 

-The Lewis Family, Maitland, FL 


This house is wonderful! The owners have paid attention to every last detail, and you will truly feel pampered. Some of the things that my family and I particularly enjoyed include:
--The beds/linens (unbelievably comfortable)
--The hot tub
--The play area for the kids downstairs (they entertained themselves for hours)
--The downstairs media room (perfect for adult hang-out at night)
There are awesome nearby hikes, and downtown Hendersonville and Asheville are both fantastic for strolling, people-watching, shopping, and good eats. I highly recommend this house!

"Best Ever Vacation Rental"  

White Stone Lake Manor was the best vacation ever. Our family (7 members) spent a week in this lovely home. For the past 6-7 yrs. , we have rented homes in the Asheville/Black Mt. area, but none have provided more comfort and rest than this one. This 2-acre property proved serenity, at best. Ranging in age from 4-80 years, we found that each of us had our own corners of the home.

The king-size beds on the first floor were so distanced from each other that we always had complete privacy and quietness. The lower level was spacious and a perfect hangout for the older children with additional sleeping areas and a wonderful media room. They had many, many movies to pick from and load on the huge TV, complete with surround sound.

The large pond on the property, stocked with a variety of fish for the kids to feed provided endless hours of fun. The playground on the property was a source of fun for the smaller children with its slide and swings, etc. Grandma and grandpa enjoyed the carefree days lying in the hammock under the beautiful trees. It brought back memories of bygone days. The kids loved the fire pit for roasting their marshmallows and eating their s'mores.

Stephanie and Robert provided every conceivable amenity in this beautiful home-art work adorned every wall. I felt, at times, I was walking through an exquisite art gallery-so tastefully done. This was more than a "home away from home". It excelled in every area when looking for a comfortable vacation rental. The home is just a breath away from Ingles, a fine grocery store and many other stores and restaurants. No more looking for me!!! This will be our choice each and every year at vacation time.
