What people are saying: 

“Heather’s place was the perfect destination for our weekend getaway! Nestled next to a tranquil river scene, we were isolated enough to enjoy private relaxation, but a quick 15-minute drive from the excitement of downtown.”

“Very peaceful and convenient location to downtown! Definitely recommend for a romantic get-away with your SO. The Jacuzzi tub equipped with a bubble bath soap was my FAVORITE part of the studio apartment.”

“The location was perfect and easy to navigate. The studio is close to restaurants, a convenience store, a hospital, and a supermarket. It was also just a 5 to 10 minute drive to downtown Asheville depending on the traffic. The studio itself was modern and clean with a little porch swing to sit and listen to the river.”

What people are saying: 

“A fabulous but short weekend. Chad made the home feel very inviting and warm, especially with the brownies and dog treat waiting on us. The house was very clean and a perfect getaway for my fiancé, my dog and myself. The backyard by the river (literally 10 feet from the door) was beautiful. The location was also very nice; just a few minutes away from downtown Boone.”

“Chad’s place is exactly as it looks on the photos, except more beautiful and tranquil. It’s a real back to nature feel, quiet, secluded with a beautiful view of a river out the window.”

“This place exceeded expectations. The location was perfect, right between Boone and Blowing Rocks. It was also 5 minutes from the entrance to the blue ridge parkway which was an added bonus and made it easy to access great hikes as well as in town activities! Chad was an amazing host and provided us with local eggs and coffee and gave us tips on local spots and hikes to visit. We would absolutely stay again.”
