Our group had a great experience at Orchard Knob. The home was everything we wished for - clean and cozy, comfortable beds, and a well-appointed kitchen. The back deck with fireplace, lovely sectional, and unobstructed views was simply the best. We had a wonderful stay and hope to return again. And thank you, Greybeard, for being such a joy to work with.

Our family rented Orchard Knob for 4 nights over the New Year holiday weekend. This rental is beautiful, clean, and fully equipped with everything you could need. The mountain views are incredible! Greybeard Rental Co. was great to work with and we appreciated their attention to detail. The coffee maker was broken and they replaced it immediately. We would definitely stay here again. We highly recommend Greybeard to potential vacationers to the Black Mountain/Asheville area.

While I could go on about the 4 oversize bedrooms or well stocked kitchen, the reason to rent here is the fabulous deck with it's comfortable covered seating and large dining table that allow you to just relax and take in the wonderful view. Could have the entire weekend just drinking wine, eating and relaxing.

We wanted a place with a great view and lots of outside space. We found both in this outstanding rental.

The porches are the real star of this location. Tons of room, outdoor sectional, and most importantly a fireplace. This is where we spent the entire weekend.

The kitchen had everything we needed to cook for the weekend. All the bedrooms and bathrooms were clean and comfortable.

We would absolutely come back the next time we are looking for a mountain house.

Recently renovated and refreshed, beautiful, spacious, well-equipped, home with a gorgeous view and covered deck with fireplace. The floor plan of this home is perfect for a large family or a couples mountain get-away - split plan upstairs with 2 master suites & two spacious bedrooms down with large "Jack & Jill" bath. One bedroom has sitting area (including sleeper sofa & fireplace). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

This is a large home and has some really great views. The kitchen is fully stocked. The house has windows and deck across the whole back of the house. The only two things my family wished could be improved on were larger tv in great room and better tv downstairs. On rainy days it's nice to have a larger tv for the family to watch a movie together. Then perhaps a gas or charcoal grill. We had a great time and made some great memories here. I know I learned some new card games while enjoying the views outside. Restaurants and grocery stores are close, yet when you are at the home you feel you are miles away from it all. Thanks to Greybeard Rentals for finding this home for us at the last minute. It helped us to have a good vacation with our children. Which is priceless.

Sounds like a great time. I'm so glad it was a good stay. Thanks also for the suggestions for the home! Hope to have you back soon.

We enjoyed our stay and only wish it could have been longer. The house has been updated with some different furnishings and is even more like home than before. The view is better this year due to some work done on the surrounding trees. We've stayed here for several years now and always look forward to our time here with great anticipation. The property and the community make for a restful yet entertaining vacation.

Three couples met for the New Year and the house was perfect for us. The upstairs split bedroom plan and the downstairs bedroom and den allowed my niece, her husband and two very small children to have their own private separate space. The kitchen was very comfortable for cooking and well-stocked. The views are beautiful and there is a lovely walk to the top of the mountain. The layout of the house was excellent for privacy and lots of living space for family interaction.

We enjoy this house. We have rented it several times over the past few years. The ONLY thing that might be a negative to some is the distance from Black Mountain.
