Gateway Mountain, located about 30 minutes from Asheville, offers a secluded getaway paradise, and luxurious Havencrest makes a splendid rental home from which to explore this wonderful community and all of the western NC mountains. From spectacular views to hiking to wildlife to historical homes, enjoy all that Asheville and its environs offer from the lovely 5 bedroom, 4.5 bath home.
Havencrest provides an immaculate yet cozy interior with exposed beams, warm colors and expansive views. Warm up by the fireplaces that are present on two floors, or head outside to the large fire pit area. With two master suites and additional sleeping options in addition to the 5 bedrooms, this wonderfully crafted home can accommodate a number of guests, and the dining table expands to seat 16. Take some time to read on the enclosed screen porch or play a game of billiards indoors or pick-up basketball outside. This western NC mountain rental is one of Greybeard Rentals’ dog friendly homes, so bring your best friend along for the trip. It’s a home that feels like just that…a place to gather and feel at home, all while providing a convenient location to explore and enjoy an Asheville area vacation.
Start your adventure within Gateway Mountain, a 3,000 acre mountain top community that features two lakes, a waterfall park, hikes and abundant wildlife. Venture out a half hour or so and get a taste of Asheville. Savor the dining options in this eclectic city, sample the craft beer at any of the numerous micro breweries, and shop in some wonderful galleries that feature local arts and crafts. If you want more, direct your group to Biltmore Estates where you can tour the former Vanderbilt home and taste the latest offering from the Biltmore Winery. A recent Greybeard blog included ideas for what to do in the area that National Geographic presented, along with some of our own ideas.
For more ideas about activities and events, be sure to take a look at Greybeard’s Things To Do webpage that includes a section on local hikes and offers other options for activities. Take in a Friday night Drum Circle or go take a look at the home that Thomas Wolfe grew up in and went on to write You Can’t Go Home Again. If you’re bringing your four-legged friend along, look at five places to take your dog in Asheville. And as always, be sure to look at the Asheville Events webpage to stay current on what’s happening in the area. If you have some idea of what you’d like to do, but you would prefer not to have to organize it yourself, take a look at Greybeard’s Guest Services page that offers special packages and a la carte items to make your trip even easier to plan.
