HOME HIGHLIGHTS
Sparkling clean3 recent guests have said that this home was sparkling clean.

Comfortable and spacious contemporary ranch tucked into a beautiful cove 15 miles from Asheville. Listen to the sounds of the birds and the creek- great stargazing!
-15 minutes to grocery store/ shopping
-10 miles to Blue Ridge Parkway
-23 minutes to Biltmore Estate
A quiet place to retreat to at the end of the day. We also live on property- it's nice to know you have a good neighbor in the wilderness! Want a personally guided hike from Fernwood or a house concert? Ask me about add-ons!

My family had a lovely, restful stay at FernWood. Having Joy as a host was a delight! The home is tucked away in the mountains -- just far enough to retreat to after a day exploring Asheville and surrounding areas, but not a bad drive at all. We enjoyed our few interactions wit…

Joy was a great host! Very responsive to messages, happy to answer any questions. As mentioned she's on site but we didn't see/hear anything. The house was very spacious. We stayed there with 4 adults & 5 kids and it had plenty of room. Clean, personal touches & very homey. Perf…

Thanks Corissa! I enjoyed hosting you and your family. Due to concerns about driveway expressed by guests I have gone ahead and moved my bell tent to the back and will use this access myself, since I have 4 wheel drive. This way guests can utilize the front paved drive and yard.

Joy is very sweet and we were excited to be her first Airbnb customers. She left us very good notes on how to work things in the house. If you are looking for a secluded place to relax with your family for a few days, Fernwood is the right place for you. There is no TV in the …

Thank you Ashley. I regret I was not on-site to also greet your parents when they arrived at night. They seemed a bit lost the next morning due to unfamiliarity with the AirBnb concept and some confusion about where I live on the property. I will look into automatic lighting at back door and want to assure guests that the house is for your private use and not a space I enter unless there is a need from a guest. The tent (just recently put up) and garage/ laundry/ front of the house are my spaces; and the back yard/ patio/ entire house are for guests. And yes, this is a fairly remote location! Not a quick easy commute to other areas in county for which one might have a large amount of time committed to. Thanks so much for the feedback!

Hi I’m Joy and I have been living in Western North Carolina since 1997. I came here to work at a summer camp after college and to explore what was then the tiny city of Asheville. Asheville is still a great place to come home to; even if it’s just for a visit. These mountains …
