THIS WAS A CHRISTMAS GATHERING WITH A WEDDING SPRINKLED IN! WE WERE IN WALKING DISTANCE TO THE HOME OF OUR OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS WE WERE JOINING FOR THE FESTIVITIES. THE SCENERY WAS SPECTACULAR AND WHO WOULDNT LOVE A STREAM RUNNING UNDER THEIR HOME, THE SOUND WAS SO SOOTHING AND PEACEFUL! WE WERE PUT OFF WITH THE NUMBER OF LIGHT BULBS THAT WERE BURNT OUT, ESPECIALLY ON THE WALKWAY (STAIRS) THAT LEAD DOWN TO THE ROAD. WE FELT THIS WAS A SAFETY ISSUE AND THAT THE MANAGEMENT COMPANY SHOULD HAVE MADE SURE ALL LIGHTS WERE FUNCTIONAL. WE REPLACED THEM OURSELVES. OUR RENTAL WAS CLEANED 3 WEEKS BEFORE OUR ARRIVAL SO IT HAD GOTTEN DUSTY AND HAD SOME COBWEBS.

Great house for 4 people. Beautiful view. Very nice neighborhood. So close to the quaint little town of Black Mountain and 15 minutes from Asheville. Great location. Driveway was a challenge. Not sure if there is ice and/or snow how anyone would get up it but there is parking at the bottom which was good. Home was very clean and well kept. Will definitely stay here again and highly recommend it. Bread at our arrival was delicious. Thank you Greybeard.

The waterfall flowing beneath the house made for a very relaxing stay. Even though it did rain for the majority of our stay, the combination of the stream and rain made for the best sleep I've had in a long time. The house was great, felt secluded without being far away from civilization. Our only concern was that half of the living room area did not have blinds for half the windows, which are floor to ceiling length windows. Left one feeling a little exposed at night. I returned from a grocery store at night and could see into the room from the road. Beyond that, everything was great. Would like to return sometime in the warmer months.
Manager response on 2018-11-28 - Response from Greybeard Rentals
Thank you for the note about the blinds. We appreciate your feedback. I'm glad you had a great stay overall!

My favorite part of my stay was sitting in the living room, looking through floor to ceiling windows and watching the sun come up over the mountains while I listened to the creek. Lovely, clean home with comfortable living room and kitchen overlooking the mountains and trees. Perfect set up for my 92-year-old mother to walk straight into the house from the parking area with no steps. Guests can drive up or park below and climb the steps.

Wonderful. I'm glad you enjoyed Island in the Stream and found it to have easy accessibility. That time listening to the creek and watching the sunrise sounds perfect!

We took a week off and stayed in this lovely home. We enjoyed it so much. Even in the winter with snow falling, you could hear the stream flowing beneath the house. Very comfortable.

Driveway: It does have a very steep driveway, but was easy to navigate once you got the hang of it. Even with snow, it was not bad at all. The parking area is on level with the house and makes it very easy.

My wife and I stayed here 4 nights over Thanksgiving, celebrating our 45th wedding anniversary. Located in Montreat, it's just 8 minutes outside Black Mountain, and about 30-40 minutes from downtown Asheville. The house has 2 main parts: (1) a yurt-like living room with small bedroom with bathroom off the living room, plus a kitchen, and powder room, and (2) a large master bedroom with full bath. Connecting the 2 parts is a dining room. There are decks attached to the master bedroom, the small bedroom and the living room. The kitchen was well supplied with dishes and glasses, of higher quality than one typically sees in a rental. Similarly, the furniture in the house is nicer than what one often finds in a rental unit. There is a gas fireplace in the living room that is capable of heating it quite well. Unfortunately, the pilot was off when we arrived and the handyman that came (almost immediately after we called the rental office) to light the pilot and get things going was not able to get the back burners working, so the fireplace was decorative only for the four days we were there. On the night before we departed, I finally got the back burner's ON switch to click and then both sets of burners worked. The final morning the fireplace with its automatic burner kicked in full time and put out lots of heat. The folks at the rental office were wonderful, both on the phone and in person, and we felt well taken care of and would happily rent from them again. In terms of location, this is perfect, if you like hiking (as we do). You are only 5-10 minutes from most trailheads in Montreat and a few minutes from town. The hiking on Montreat is excellent and diverse enough to satisfy those seeking easy, moderate *and* strenuous trails, all in the same area. Catawba Falls is also a short drive away. One caution: This house's driveway is VERY steep, so we suspect in ice and snow, getting up it would be a challenge!
Manager response on 2017-12-04 - Response from Greybeard Rentals
Congratulations on celebrating your 45th wedding anniversary!! Very special. I'm so sorry for the trouble with the gas fireplace during your stay, but happy to hear you still had a wonderful time. Thank you for this feedback. -Greybeard Rentals

This house was decorated lovely. It had more furniture than other rentals I had rented, so it felt more homey. The master bedroom was huge. We loved hearing the little stream that ran under the house. It was such a quiet and peaceful location. There were other houses around, but we couldn't see any other houses. It was a beautiful home and a perfect place to get away and relax.
