Nice house. Wonderful location. Met family members for a short vacation to show them Asheville area. Would rent again.

comfortable, clean and so well managed - TurnKey made it so so easy. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

The cabin was cozy and well-maintained. We loved the location on top of a small mountain, as it was quiet and serene. The narrow, steep roads made it a little challenging to find the cabin the first time.

The cabin is a great base camp for activities in the area. The Mountains to Sea trail is very close by and made for a nice day hike. Downtown Asheville was a quick 10 minute drive away. The Biltmore was also only about 10 minutes away. We would definitely stay again. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

My wife and I stayed for 35 days and found the cabin to be an amazingly beautiful home. It’s secluded and very comfortable. Norm, the owner, lives close by and was quick to respond to questions and requests. Cooking utensils were limited (no knife sharper than a butter knife), but we always bring our own knives and some pots and pans for long stays. Norm’s dog has an amazingly strong bark, but it woke us only a few nights. The home is roomy and the beds comfy – one has a luxurious foam top. The cabin has an expansive deck and a great screened porch for eating meals and watching fireflies at night.

The Elkhorn Cabin was a wonderful retreat for our family. The cabin was decorated in a comfortable and inviting way and was spotless. We loved having the games and ping-pong table. We set up a little tournament and each night after our adventures in Asheville, we ended with some serious ping-pong. We had a shower with a slow drain but after sending a text for help, it was all fixed before the next morning. Should we return to this area, we would want to stay here every time!
