We fell in love with Asheville and the surrounding area during our visit in April 2014. Doreen and I are from the Village of Lake Ann located in Northwest Michigan where we own and manage a beautiful 8 unit lakeside resort called Sleeping Bear Resort. The resort is located half way between Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore and Traverse City, Michigan. Our resort closes down during the month of April and we wanted to find another place we like as much as Northwest Michigan. Not an easy task as Sleeping Bear Dunes was named the most beautiful place in America by Good Morning America and Traverse City, located on the shores of Lake Michigan and Grand Traverse Bay, has been awarded numerous accolades and is a very popular vacation destination.
And then we discovered Asheville! As much as there is to do for the outdoor enthusiast in Northwest Michigan, and there’s a lot, there’s more in Asheville. We tell our friends in Northwest Michigan that Asheville is like Traverse City on steroids! We love Asheville so much, we decided to purchase a home that we could stay in during the months of March and April and offer the home to other guests during the remainder of the year. And so that is how the Asheville Mountain House came about. As I sit here writing this today, March 6th, 2018, we are busy getting our home ready for our 1st guests May 1st. We hope you’ll enjoy this area as much as we do!
Doreen and I enjoy the outdoors. We enjoy hiking, exploring quaint little towns in beautiful areas and scenic drives along the Blue Ridge Parkway. We also like music, especially local musicians, and small music venues. We like visiting breweries and experiencing the Downtown Asheville vibe. Oh yeah, we enjoy being a host, meeting our guests and furnishing our properties to allow you, our guest, to have a vacation experience that will make for lifelong memories.
