Reviewed 4 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

First, the view is quite good, save for the power plant (i'm assuming) that was right in the middle of everything. The drive way was VERY steep. My wife nearly hyperventilated! The nights were surprisingly quiet. The house isn't very kid friendly, but it's not a death trap. Mainly, there are no outlet plugs, so you'd have to bring those. The stairs to the basement have a door so you can close and lock it to keep little ones from tumbling down. The upstairs did not have a way to keep children from going up, so that had to be remedied.

All in all, it was a pleasant stay.

Management response:

Thanks for taking the time to write, Ryan. Yes, the driveway is steep (the house is on a mountainside) but there's plenty of room to park in front of the home if guests don't want to use the garage. I thought we had several outlet plugs, so thanks for the heads up - will install more ASAP. Glad your visit...

Rented This property via trip advisor. Owner sent pix of house,etc. Did warn about steep driveway (it really is very steep). Stairs from garage to main floor, main floor to second, and stairs from second to third (Master Suite). Upon arrival, we realized that my husband who uses a walker would have difficulty getting from the road down the stairs to the front door if we didn't want to use the steep driveway. House is located out of town in a nice development, but very wooded and road twists and turns up the mountain. Not much room for two cars to pass each other.

Also, didn't really see area to conveniently walk my dog.

Called the owner to express our concerns and our decision that we could not stay at this accommodation. Although we stayed less than an hour, she decided that she would return 1/2 of our fee (saying she could not rent it out at this late time). The check we received was for less than 1/2 as she deducted the trip advisor fee she pays...

Management response:

Thanks to this traveler for leaving a review. We regretted that they decided not to stay at our home upon arrival, which does have 3 levels and is on a mountainside. Guests do have to navigate those 3 sets of stairs, so we agree it is not suitable for those with mobility issues. However, we always bring our dogs when...

About the neighbourhood
Our lodge is in a neighborhood off Sweeten Creek Road, on the side of a mountain called Sunset Ridge; you can enjoy those sunsets from our deck. There are roughly 30 homes in the area, and ours is one of the most secluded, with woods on all sides. There's no through traffic in the neighborhood, as there's only one road in and out of the area. We love the subdivision because it's both quiet and convenient to amenities such as full service grocery stores, restaurants and shops.
Getting around
Visitors may prefer to use their car to visit various sites, or you can hop on a trolley at the Visitors Center in downtown Asheville. There's a ghost tour as well as more routine ways to see the area..
