Property Highlights

Nestled on 9+ private acres on Little Pisgah Mountain, retro charm & contemporary style converge at this original Modern Mid-Century “Deck House” that embraces many of the design’s trademark features, including an open floor plan, mahogany trim, hand-routed waffle door, gigantic windows, and sliding doors with screens. From the vibrant color palette & abstract expressionist art that is unique to each space within the house to the eccentric light fixtures and high-quality craftsmanship, you’ll instantly feel inspired by the innovative & impeccable styling of this inviting mountain oasis.

In the morning, settle in the adirondacks on the upper deck to watch the vivid sunrise while you sip your coffee and listen to the songs of native birds. On rainy days, listen for the tranquil rushing of nearby mountain streams, and on those occasional windy days, listen for the wind whistling through the rhododendrons. After coffee, wander along the property’s walking trails that wind around the house and up the mountain before returning to enjoy breakfast at the kitchen bar. Thoughtfully supplied, take advantage of the waffle maker & Vitamix in the sleek gourmet kitchen to make a stack of waffles and a batch of fresh fruit smoothies for you & your group. Boasting a Dog Cubby with bowls, mats, treats & toys, your pup can enjoy their own special supplies in the kitchen while you do. After breakfast, carve out time to work on projects at the desk in the main living room or keep up with your workout routine in the small home gym behind the large cabinet doors in the lower-level hallway.

Retro Metro Deck House is located just 20 min. from the quaint towns of Lake Lure & Chimney Rock & 15 min. from Asheville in the quiet community of Fairview dotted with picturesque farmland that’s open to the public. Hickory Nut Gap Farm is best known for its meat supply to the finest farm-to-table restaurants in the AVL area & as a stop along the WNC Cheese Trail, but there are also seasonal events and festivals to enjoy. Another destination along the trail is Looking Glass Creamery. Stop by to sample their homemade cheese & “Carmoolita” caramel paired with a glass of wine. For more farm fun, visit the sustainable Flying Cloud Farm, where you can treat yourself to a vibrant U-pick bouquet of native flowers & a bushel of fresh berries. Once you’ve had your fill of country living, travel into the city to enjoy the shopping, attractions, and art scene that characterize the mountains of WNC.

For area hiking, check out Bearwallow Mountain trail, an easy 1-mile hike that reaches a grassy meadow at its summit and features a nearly 360° view that includes Mt. Mitchell and Mt. Pisgah. You’ll love strolling through the wildflowers & picnicking alongside the grazing cattle that call this mountaintop home. After your hike, reward yourself with a cold beer from Whistlehop Brewing Co. that includes a family & pet-friendly playground with a number of activities (such as mini golf) to enjoy. After that, head over to Turgua Brewing, situated beside Cane Creek, to listen to live music and sip on their craft ciders, meads, or ales.

In the evening, return home to read one of the books in the home’s library before going inside to make dinner using the gas grill to be enjoyed at the live edge dining table with panoramic woodland views. After dinner, grab chilled mixers from the beverage fridge & use the tools on the bar cart to create a tasty cocktail to enjoy around one of the wood-burning fireplaces or the glowing blue fire pit on the deck. Linger outside to stargaze before returning inside to stream movies on one of the smart TVs or pop in one of the many DVDs. Stay up late to play some board games, card games, video games on the WiiU console, or enjoy a low-key night of solving puzzles and sipping wine.

Note: This home IS pet friendly with an additional fee. There is an exterior camera facing the driveway. While not required, 4WD/AWD is encouraged from December-March when icy and/or snowy road conditions are possible. A 6-person hot tub was added in 2021

The Retro Metro deck house is appointed perfectly with a mountain view outside and great vibes inside! It had everything needed for a great stay and the multiple living spaces and separated bedrooms made it easy to have two families and dogs in the house. Everything was clean and the welcome basket with popcorn and amenity packs made us feel very happy to be there! The fire table, grill and deck furniture allowed us to enjoy the deck as much as we enjoyed the inside.

We absolutely fell in love with the Metro Retro Deck House! The split level floor plan was perfect for our family of five, including three kids aged six and under. The deck area was wonderful for sitting out in the morning and night. And my husband and I loved relaxing in the hot tub after the kids were in bed. Beautifully decorated house, extremely comfortable beds, a well-stocked kitchen, and centrally located to Asheville made this the perfect vacation home.

Walking into this beautiful and beautifully maintained house was like receiving big hug. It alone would have been worth writing home about. Tucked in the middle of a lush mountainside forest, surrounded by well-tended ornamental flowers and plantings, with a spectacular view of distant mountains made it all the more wonderful. Comfortable with all the amenities.

Retro Metro Deck House is AMAZING!

It was the most organized rental I've ever been to. So clean and well appointed. Very comfortable beds, a variety of pillow styles to chose from. Kitchen had everything we needed. It was beautiful, views were amazing, the one question I had while there was answered very quickly. Location was a quick drive to town, blue ridge parkway and chimney rock. Hope to stay there again one day!

We stayed in the house in mid-February 2022, with two adults, four kids, and a dog. The house is fantastic -- very comfortable, extraordinarily well organized and maintained, and equipped with virtually everything you might need during the stay. Highly recommended.

The view is stunning. There are so many amenities that just make everything super comfortable. The bed was also very comfortable. There's literally nothing that could have been added to this to make it a better stay. Near of grocerys store and the Hickory nut gap farm (fresh grassfed meat). Highly recommend for a romantic getaway weekend

When a rental property is perfect, it is difficult to to enlarge on perfection. Metro Home was clean and convenient. Except for more lighting during dark, rainy days indoors, there is nothing I could add to make our stay better.
