About Bob Spear

I have been a licensed General Contractor, in this area for over 25 years. I try to find the best properties that represent, our mountain area, and also build them with low density to preserve our natural scenery.

The townhouse is very comfortable with lots a privacy. You can rent one side or both sides for family and friends. The property is what is so fantastic with great mountain views and river front also being so close to everything.

What makes this townhome unique

If you try to rent a standard room at a decent hotel you will find this rental is about the same price.

Incredible!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this property!!! It's nice, clean and has a great view! It's perfect to take a cup of coffee out on the deck in the morning and look out at the mountains. It's only about 10 minutes from downtown Asheville which has plenty of restaurants and breweries. Also, it's only about 40 minutes from Pisgah National Forest. We will definitely be back!

Disrupted weekend

  • 3 of 5

We arrived in the neighborhood after dark and even though we were using a turn-by-turn navigational guide missed the drive. We were surprised to see a person standing in a yard with a flashlight and what appeared to be a rifle. After a quick turn around we located the drive and house. Note: the street sign has an arrow taped to it pointing in the direction of the duplex. The drive was dirt and gravel and slopes down to the house. There is a very large hole in the drive. Maybe dug by the track hoe in the back. The house is neat and functional. The broken and loose kitchen chairs mentioned in a previous review are still in the house along with the antique hall tree. After turning in for the night we head out in the morning. It has snowed and the SUV barely climbs the hill. The SUV is functional and the driver experienced. Returning late afternoon the decision was made to park at the top of the hill and walk down to the house to prevent being stuck at the bottom. There is no power to the house. We waited until dark before deciding to leave. It is freezing and the temperature is dropping. There are no emergency supplies in the house. There are candles, no matches. We carry our belongings and the groceries around the hole in the drive and up the hill to the car. Perishable food was discarded as the motel we went to did not have an efficiency.

The house was clean, the kitchen utensils acceptable to warm and serve and we are not interested in a future discount. Once is enough.

Owner's Response: Yes this was a disaster. The weather was forecasted for 1 to 2 " of snow and we got 12". When Asheville gets 12" of snow, which seldom happens, we are all stuck for awhile. There were power outages throughout the area. Roads were unpassable and it was a nightmare. Who can blame people, who were expecting a nice vacation, to be upset when it turns out badly. The power company hit a water line in the driveway and there was a barrier put up around the hole. That has been fixed and covered. New chairs that were ordered, before they arrived, have have been replaced. This is a very safe neighborhood and people don't walk around with guns. There are candles, matches, and a flashlight in every unit. When the electric did come back on I called the renters. They decided not to come back. I am sorry this happened, I know I would be upset myself.

Disappointing is the word that comes to mind upon arriving to this place.

  • 2 of 5

The location, the views, and the structure are closed to the descriptions provided, however, the level of comfort for a vacation is also dictated by the furniture in place. The furniture in this rental is of low quality. The couch is very uncomfortable to seat, definitely thrift store quality as is the remainder of the furniture, including the “new beds”. There is a massage chair that is supposed to pass for a recliner (the only one) in the living room. Don’t expect to seat in this chair and comfortably watch a movie. It is not designed for this purpose. The dining room has four chairs but you should only use two, one has a broken back which has been duck taped together and left for use, and the other shakes as you seat.

Owner's Response: Sorry you were disappointed with the rental. Most people find it comfortable. We have ordered a new sofa 2 weeks ago and it has not been delivered yet. I know the sofa had some problems. I will check the chairs as they may be loose and need to be tightened. Most of the wood furniture are antiques and I guess that is not your taste. If you would of contacted me I could've done something but I didn't hear from you even after I emailed you to contact me if there were any problems.

Pretty basic accommodations but great location

  • 3 of 5

I guess I was just expecting a little better accommodations after seeing 5 out of 5 on so many reviews. Let's be clear this is a 2 unit building so you do hear the neighbors. The location is outstanding. You couldn't get much better. The kitchen is well equipped. Living room is nice but the sofa had some springs that were shot and my pregnant wife wasn't a fan. If you have more than 2 people it would be a challenge cause you really only have the sofa to sit in as there is an old massage chair in there which isn't too comfy. There must be some water issues in the base ment cause there is a smell in the downstairs laundry and it floats up to the half bath. Upstairs is ok, the master doesn't face the mountains which confused me and the futon is pretty much not usuable comfort wise. Master bedroom bed is ok. Overall the furniture reminded me of my college mismatched apartment except less comfortable. I was excited there were 3 acres to have the dogs at but it's on a hill and was very challenging taking the dogs out. FYI there aren't fish in the river, it's also very challenging to get to. I don't like being brutally honest but it's nice to know what to expect. I'll find a cabin in the woods next time for about the same price or barely more.

Owner's Response: We do have a cabin in the woods vrbo # 318344. It is more expensive but more to what you were looking for. Would be glad to give you a discount on that rental to make up for your stay.
