About The Asheville Lodge
I moved to Asheville in 2001 and fell in love with its scenic beauty, climate, and rich cultural life.
2004, I completed my dream home on 3-1/2 acres of land with a stream
and pond. It's just a 10-mile drive from Pack Place (the center of downtown
Asheville), yet completely private. The two nearest houses are barely
visible in the winter and completely hidden for the nine months of the
year when the trees are in leaf. Standing on the front deck and looking
out over the great valley below, one sees an unobstructed fifty-mile
view past Weaverville and Mars Hill all the way to Sam's Gap and the
mountain range that divides North Carolina from Tennessee. The house
is 3000 square feet, with 4 bedrooms, 2 full and 2 half baths, a Jacuzzi,
wraparound decks, large sunny rooms with high ceilings, fully-equipped
modern kitchen, and a 400 square foot game/music/media room on the lower
why am I offering it as a vacation rental? I was fully expecting to live
here for the rest of my life. But then in January 2005, I fell in love
with a wonderful woman and we married in March 2006. She works in Johnson
City, Tennessee, about 80 miles from here, and her kids are in school there.
No way could she pick up and move here, so I moved there. I couldn't bear
the thought of selling my beautiful home — when
the time comes, my wife and I will retire here — so I transformed
it into the Asheville Lodge. I think you'll enjoy
it as much as we do (we loved it so much that we had our wedding here).
It's ideal for couples, families with children, friends, and as a retreat
for companies, religious and fraternal groups, non-profits and other
You can recharge your batteries and rejuvenate your spirit without leaving the house. Enjoy a long, relaxing bath in our Jacuzzi. Curl up with a book, or watch satellite TV or DVD/VHS on our wide-screen TV. There are three TVs in the house, one on each level. Our satellite service allows all three to be independently controlled.
Sit on the deck surrounded by birds and flowers. Watch the sun rise and set over the mountains while the pressures of the outside world slip away. Practice making new gourmet recipes in our fully-equipped kitchen, or just grill up some burgers and hot dogs on our outdoor propane grill and then enjoy eating in two indoor areas or outside on the deck. Kids (adults too!) can shoot basketball hoops outside or play music or foosball in our play room, which is isolated from the rest of the house on the lower level so noise won't disturb anyone.
Whether you want an exciting, action-packed family adventure, or a chance to explore, or to shop for beautiful things, or just to spend time alone with that special someone in your life, you will find it here.
The Asheville Lodge welcomes you!
