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. Monthly tenants are responsible for heating fuel tank’s maintenance during their stay and a top-off at departure. This property does not rent to college students.

This is a perfect house (we had our two teens plus 2 of their friends) in the perfect location. We cannot wait to come back; the location is amazing, the house is super roomy and lovely and the activities abundant.

The kitchen and eating area was really nice as a family gathering space. Lots of rustic charm. The location was great for walking the trails around the creek that go to Lake Susan
Manager response - Response from Greybeard Rentals
I'm glad you were pleased with the gathering space at Stonewalls for you and your family, and that you enjoyed the home itself! Come back again soon!

This was our 6th summer in Montreat, and we finally found the perfect rental house. The location is perfect, and the house itself is super nice. We loved the open den/kitchen/eat-in area, and the front porch was a great place to hang out as well. The owners have thought of every tiny detail. Oh, and there's a foosball table in the basement that wasn't mentioned on the website...added bonus for our kids. We've already booked it for next summer. Can't wait to go back. Side note, be sure to go eat at the Blue Ridge Biscuit Company in Black Mountain while you're in Montreat.
Manager response - Response from Greybeard Rentals
Thank you so much for your great feedback! We are so pleased that Stonewalls was the perfect Montreat rental for your family, and hope to welcome you back next summer! -Greybeard Rental's team
