Description

Ransford’s Roost is a darling historic home in Montreat. Built in 1908, this New England style Colonial home is sure to give you a hearty welcome. Lovely half-wrap front porch has plenty of room to take in the fresh mountain air while you sip a fresh lemonade. The front porch is just steps away from the Montreat Conference Center and the center of Montreat, Lake Susan.

The bright yellow kitchen has plenty of space for your group - with mix-matched seating for 12. Whip up your meals on the brand new double oven in the galley kitchen. Roast s’mores at the firepit on the back patio, or on a chilly night, cozy up by the central wood burning fireplace with original stone hearth. The sleeping spaces are on all three levels of the house, with full hall baths on the main and second levels. The gabled attic rooms are airy and bright with the skylights, they have short ceiling clearance and are accessed by a ladder-like staircase.

You’re within walking distance to the award winning Robert Lake Park - with a lovely creekside playground, tennis courts, small ballfield, and easy walking trail Elizabeth’s Path. Peruse the ethically sourced handcrafted goods at Ten Thousand Village or the area specific items at The Montreat Store. Grab a coffee or hand scooped ice cream from The Huckleberry and take a walk around Lake Susan, or in the summer rent a paddle boat or go fishing. Montreat’s trail system offers several hiking options from easy to strenuous and are within a few minute’s drive of the home.

Venture into Black Mountain, an eight minute drive, to enjoy the small businesses and locally owned restaurants that line the downtown streets. From pub-style Appalachian to authentic Cuban, several local coffee roasters, and fantastic bakeries - Black Mountain has it all. If you’ve exhausted Black Mountain’s offerings, travel another twenty minutes down the interstate to Asheville - where you can enjoy several James Beard nominated restaurants and the booming beer scene. Take a walk down the newly completed greenway in the River Arts District and visit the galleries of local artisans. Spend a day at the Biltmore Estate - touring the historical Home, it’s grounds and gardens, and the award winning winery - before settling back in at the comforts of Ransford’s Roost.

Linens (sheets and towels) are available for an additional fee. Ransford’s will rent monthly from mid-August to mid-May for $2400 a month. Included in rent cost is a $100 power allowance and a $50 water allowance, per month. Fuel is not included with the monthly rent. The tank will be full when you arrive and tenant is responsible for the fuel bill during their tenancy, as well as topping off the tank at departure for rentals from Nov-March. This property does not rent to college students.

FAQ

WHERE IS THIS HOUSE LOCATED?

Ransford's Roost is located in Montreat. This home is approximately 10 minutes to Black Mountain and 30 minutes to Asheville. Click on the location tab above to locate this house on a map.

WHAT IS YOUR REFUND/CANCELLATION POLICY?

If you need to cancel your reservation and the property you had reserved re-rents for the time which you had it reserved, you will be refunded all money you had paid minus an $89 cancellation fee. If you cancel and the property does not re-rent for your reserved dates, you will lose all money you have paid to that point. For this reason, we recommend that you purchase trip insurance. Please call 888-228-8008 before making a reservation if you have questions or concerns.

WHAT IS YOUR PET POLICY AND FEE?

Ransford's Roost is not “pet friendly”. Please be respectful of those owners who, because of allergies or other personal reasons, have chosen not to allow any pets. If housekeeping notes that a pet was present on a non-pet friendly property during your visit, you will be charged a minimum of $600 to clean carpets, upholstered furniture and complete air purification measures. Bringing a pet to a house that is not pet-friendly without owner consent or permission from Greybeard is grounds for termination of the rental agreement without refund. If you must travel with your pet, please contact us for local boarding recommendations. More info about service animals and the ADA is available here.

WHAT ARE CHECK-IN/CHECK OUT TIMES?

Check-in time is 4pm and check out time is 10am. It is important that we adhere to these times, because there is a chance that someone else will be checking out/in before or after you and we need sufficient time to ready the house for the next renter. If you wish to check-in early, there is a $50 early check-in fee that can be added on to your reservation. Early check-in is only available if someone is not checking out on the morning of your arrival. Early check-in is not available during the summer conference season. 

WHERE DO WE CHECK-IN/PICK UP KEYS?

You will pick up keys from our Black Mountain office, located at 204 East State Street. Keys will be available starting at 4:00 pm. If you are arriving after hours, you will receive instructions on how to access the safe on our front porch. There will be an envelope with your name and house name at the top. Your keys and driving directions will be inside the envelope.

WHAT IF THERE IS AN EMERGENCY DURING OUR STAY?

If you are having a medical emergency, dial 911 from the phone in your rental home or cell phone.

We hope that your stay in the area will be relaxing and without incident, but should you need to get in touch with Greybeard, we have someone on call 24 hours a day. Just call our office at 828-669-1072 and dial extension 203, which will forward to the cell phone of the person on call. Please do not hesitate to call us if something needs immediate attention, but if your question or concern can wait, we ask that you call the office during normal office hours.

WHEN ARE HOMES WITH GAS LOGS IN OPERATION?

Gas logs are not in operation May through September due to the warmer summer months. Absolutely NO fires are permitted outside unless the property is fitted with a fire ring/fire pit. You cannot bring your own portable fire pit. 

IS WIFI SERVICE INCLUDED WITH MY RENTAL RESERVATION? WILL I HAVE CELL PHONE SERVICE AT MY RENTAL?

Wifi is available at Ransford's Roost. Please note that Greybeard Rentals does not guarantee internet connectivity or speed. Each individual homeowner contracts directly with an internet service provider, and due to a variety of reasons, Greybeard does not guarantee service. Our Black Mountain and Asheville offices have wifi service available if needed.

Cell phone service is not guaranteed. You may check with your service provider to see if service is available.
