What our guests have to say…


EmptynesterRaleigh, NC – Another great stay!

This is the third time we have stayed at the cottage. We keep returning because the views and the quiet are outstanding. The house is immaculate, well appointed and professionally managed. It is close enough to Hendersonville and Asheville but also removed from the crowd. We will return.

Owner response: It’s always nice to have that one place that you know you can go to relax, reflect, and recharge. We are so pleased that Mountain Vista Retreat is “that spot” for you. We look forward to seeing you the next time you need peace & quiet.


Christine F.Green Bay, WI – Wonderful Place to Stay!!

Thank you so much for allowing us the use of your great cottage! We had a wonderful – although short – visit with our adult children and it made a perfect halfway point to stay! We were all so impressed & pleased with the accommodations – including the beautiful weather, while we were there :). Suzanne & Marty were very helpful & nice to work with, providing very quick responses to any questions we had. If we get the opportunity to do this again, this will be our “go to” spot! Can only imagine how wonderful it would be in the summer!

Owner response: Although I would love to be able to guarantee perfect weather for all of our guests, unfortunately that is out of my hands! However, I can guarantee that our property will be spotlessly clean and as comfortable as possible. I can promise that our pictures are not photo shopped and that the property, both inside and out, is as shown on this site. We really appreciate you staying with us. We know that time with family is often shorter than we wish, and in those moments of togetherness it’s nice to be someplace warm and comfortable.


MichelleEstero, FL – Very Well Equipped

I am a hospitality professional and spend my life working in and staying in luxury hotels. This home has many of the same amenities you would expect from such and in is a true step above most vacation rentals. From the beds and bedding down to the hand soap in the bathrooms everything is thoughtfully appointed and high quality. We enjoyed a quick four night stay with horrible weather and having six adults cooped up in the home for a long period of time was not a burden at all. The view is beautiful and the location is easy to get to-although even with four wheel drive I would imagine it gets very slick on the drive up in the winter so be aware. Marty and Suzanne were very accommodating and extremely helpful with any issue that came up. I wish them much success with the rental of this home. I would recommend to anyone looking for an upgraded rental experience for sure!

Owner response: Thanks for noticing and mentioning some of the “little things” that add up to make a memorable experience! As for the steep driveway, we had one day last year where my little 4 cylinder vehicle couldn’t navigate the steep slope. However, my husband’s 4 wheel drive truck made it up without incident.


StephanieLexington, SC – Perfect getaway!!!

Had a wonderful weekend at this beautiful cottage! We have stayed in many mountain cabins and this is my new favorite by far!! The owners have done an amazing job with the renovation… Looks like something you would see on HGTV! It is updated and modern but very comfortable- great beds, linens, kitchen has everything you could need. The view is pretty wonderful too!! It was just my husband and I, but with 3 bedrooms and 3 full baths, this cottage is plenty big for a family. There’s a big yard for kids to run around and play as well. Grocery stores and restaurants are minutes away, but you feel secluded on this private property. I’m already trying to plan our next trip- can’t wait to stay again!!

Owner response: Thanks for the kind words! While renovating Mountain Vista Retreat, we really tried to make it a multi-purpose vacation rental. The set up is ideal for a couple, with intimate lighting, cozy furniture, private setting and big, comfortable beds. It is also great for families with children, as we have a pack-n-play, bath tub for bathing, hot tub, and lots of room for running around outside. As the reviewer indicates, the house is isolated, yet conveniently located to many amenities.


Meagan, West Virginia – A+++

Amazing home especially for the price! Wouldnt change a thing about the home and they provide everything! Definitely the only place I’m staying when I visit the area

Owner response: Thanks so much! We know there are a lot of vacation rental properties available, so when someone takes the time to go through all the listings and then chooses Mountain Vista Retreat, we want to make sure they feel they made the right choice. We truly appreciate each one of our guests and sincerely hope they will return again:)


The Ellis Family, Durham, NC – Perfect weekend away!

We just returned from our weekend there and we already want to go back! The house was amazing and the view stunning! Everything was provided that we could possibly need, and then some. Our 3 children ages, 8, 4 and 4, didn’t want to leave to go pick apples, they just wanted to hang in the house. We enjoyed the hot tube every day and could not get enough of the view. If you are looking for an escape then look no farther, it’s the prefect getaway! Thank you for making life with 3 little kids easier for a few days!

Owner response: Because we haven’t had many guests with small children, it is good to know that you found Mountain Vista Retreat to be a functional and hospitable atmosphere for young ones. We tried to pick out furniture that would be comfortable, yet durable, for all ages. It is a wonderful aspect of our cottage that you can go apple picking, to Chimney Rock, hiking, etc…yet still have plenty of time to just enjoy the view. All in a days’ work!


L & E, Athens GA – Wonderful Visit

Owner response: A honeymoon should be a once in a lifetime occurrence, so it is especially important to start out on the right foot. We are so pleased that you chose Mountain Vista Retreat as that place to take your first steps as a married couple.With the warm, bubbling hot tub set underneath the starry sky, it can be a pretty romantic spot. Hope you come back soon!


Bill M. – Great Place!!

The renovation is beautifully done. The minute we walked in we loved it and the longer we stayed the more we appreciated it. The owners thought of everything to help accommodate our needs. We’ve rented quite a few cabins/cottages in the mountains, and this is now one of our very favorites. Looking forward to coming back!

Owner response: We are so glad you enjoyed yourselves. In our renovation, we tried to make Mountain Vista Retreat as comfortable as possible, while giving the finishes and furnishings a clean, modern line. The clutter free environment helps in eliminating the stress our guests bring with them and everyone leaves feeling relaxed, renewed, and re-energized!


 Margaret K., Jacksonville, FL – A True Retreat

If you’re looking for a secluded get-away that is private, but not too far from the action of Hendersonville/Asheville and the surrounding area activities then this is your spot. With two master bedrooms this hill top house is perfect for two couples. There is a third bedroom with twin beds so would also work for a family. The house is well designed and lovingly decorated. All is fresh and clean having just been recently renovated. Suzanne, the owner, was prompt with all responses and clearly wanted us to have a marvelous time, which we did. Didn’t get to do all that is available in the area so we’ll be back.

Owner response: Thanks for your nice review. You are absolutely right when you say that I want guests staying at Mountain Vista Retreat to enjoy themselves. I realize that going on vacation is an expensive proposition, with travel, food, entertainment, and lodging costs adding up quickly. I don’t have control over most of these items, but I can ensure that our rental property is clean & updated, pictures are true to the property and have not been photoshopped, and that we listen to our guests suggestions and try to keep improving. I am glad you and your friends had a good time and look forward to your return!


Cathy S. – Beautiful and relaxing

My friends and I had a lovely time in this beautiful home. The view from the back deck is impressive. Despite detailed plans for our friend’s 60th birthday, we spent lots of time just relaxing on the deck. It’s so quiet and there are no neighbors. You’re in the mountains, but with all the comforts in an updated, well-stocked, very clean house.

Owner response: The view is what always draws me in whenever I visit Mountain Vista Retreat. It is beautiful in the morning, with the dewy mist still hanging low. It is beautiful when the sun comes out and burns the mist away. It is beautiful to watch as storm clouds roll in from teh west and obscure the distant mountains. It is beautiful to watch as the sun sets, as evidenced by the pictures. And, once the sun has gone, and the stars come out, it remains a beautiful spot to relax, renew, & reenergize.
