BARN TESTIMONIAL


PERFECTION

Visited for my wife’s birthday and to decompress from starting a new and demanding job. Mission accomplished. My wife was blown away by the sheer elegance of the property. The property should be used in movies, I was beyond impressed. The combination of the serenity of the mountains with the experience of staying here was like a sip from the fountain of youth. I was able to reconnect with myself and my spirit and hit the reset button. Very romantic, perfect distance from the town of Asheville and a wonderful personal touch from the property owner. Thanks Anna, and I am going to go out and buy that soap that you use in your bathrooms, using it in your shower was literally a spa

PERFECT PLACE TO DECOMPRESS

My wife and I stayed here during our honeymoon and it was incredible. There were so many little details that had been thought of and taken care of. The hot tub was incredible, the bed was comfortable, the shower was relaxing, and the decor was great. The cabin was super clean and well-maintained and it felt very private but was still a short drive to Asheville. We would love to come back.

Loved this upscale, rustic/modern cabin!!!!

We celebrated our 15 year anniversary at this adorable cabin, and absolutely loved our experience. We were amazed when we stepped in the door! Imagine rustic farm house charm mixed with a modern, almost spa-like feel. The furnishings were beautiful, beds comfortable, and the owners added special touches at every turn. We loved the hot tub outside overlooking the mountains!!! The pretty landscaping around the drive and patio areas were another added touch. So many wonderful places to sit and relax! Very private as well.  Amazing Views.Thanks so much for such a great experience.

Romantic Asheville Cabin

We honeymooned at the Barn at Mountain Meadows, and we couldn’t have been more pleased. The cabin exceeded our expectations and was gorgeous, modern, and CLEAN! The floors (and everything else) were spotless, and I appreciated the attention to detail that Anna put into the property, like robes and towels just for the hot tub, and dimmers on all the lights. We loved the mountain view, the convenience to downtown, and all the electric fireplaces. It was so lovely and cozy. Highly recommended!

5 STAR EXPERIENCE IN THE MOUNTAINS

My wife and I have spent a lot of time in the Asheville area. Town Mountain is one of our favorite places. The Barn is one of the best places we have stayed. The location is perfect. If you want to get away from it all, this is a great place. Beautiful views. No one in view. If you want to experience all Asheville has to offer, this is a great place. Short drive to Blue Ridge Parkway. Short drive (or Uber) to downtown. The space is wonderful. This lodging is great for a couple looking for a getaway. Our favorite parts were the shower with a giant window looking out at the mountains and the outdoor sitting area. The high point of our time there was looking out the window one morning and watching Bones the bear wander by. finally, Anna is a great host. She is available if needed, but leaves you alone. She is a good resource for folks unfamiliar with the area. Hope you enjoy this property as much as we did. We will definitely be coming back.

Amazing Views/Good Energy

My husband and I and our Pom(dog) stayed here on our trek in our RvV back down the east coast to Florida.

Anna’s attention to detail (Fresh flowers,wine, Greeting on arrival & ( A readied hot tub) was Greatly appreciated after covering 1300 miles. THANK YOU!

The beautiful energy of the cabin along with the amazing views made it hard to venture out to explore the surrounding area.

Mama bear and her two cubs visited us on our second night.We watched them play by the lower seats from the cover of the house….So amazing to be able to see this.

We could not have picked a more perfect lace to stay ..Much Gratitude—The Reeds

SO HAPPY WE CHOSE THE BARN

So happy we chose the Barn to celebrate our 4 year anniversary! The Barn is so romanticit is by far the best vacation rental we have visited. Thank you so much for all the “love” you have put into this treasure in the woods.My husband made an anniversary wish and it came true….Mama bear and her 3 cubs…thank you for the” heads up” text Anna- we would not have been able capture them on video if it wasn’t for you. We will be sure to share all the info on the Barn with friends & family. We took the Lazoom bus tour 1st full day here- so fun to start our vacation. Hiked in Dupont State Park- beautiful waterfalls, water slide at Slippery Rock, hikes Chimney Rock, swam at Lake Lure, visited Biltmore castle then massages at Grove Park Inn on Departure. With all that we did it was nice to relax in the hot tub and enjoy the views of the mountains and your  beautiful property. Thanks again for capturing our good luck cricket!! P.S. The recommendation for Chestnut Restaurant -it was spot on as well.                                                                                                                                                   All The Best!

MINI HONEYMOON

My husband and I reserved the Barn for our mini moon after our Asheville wedding
We picked the perfect spot- It was quiet, secluded, romantic, and cozy. Every detail you could think of in this property was covered to enjoy our stay.
Property overlooks the mountains, private views. Property is well stocked with amenities-even a picnic basket that we used when driving the Blue Ridge Parkway (which is just uphill from the Barn) We loved the outdoor cooking area and being able to have a fire while we cooked and sipped wine while enjoying the views. Seeing the sun rise in the AM from the bedroom, was amazing., We enjoyed the outdoor fire pit also in the evenings under a carpet of stars.
Comfy furniture and great lighting.
The bathroom area was amazing , great towels and robes, felt like I was in a Spa -Very Zen feeling.and dimmers on all the lights and built in music
There is an herb garden and a Koi pond-very relaxing environment.
Beautiful landscaping.
A short drive to the heart of Downtown (5 minutes) enjoyed amazing restaurants and all Asheville has to offer.
We hated to leave and are already planning our anniversary.
I would highly recommend the Barn for a unforgettable experience. Thank you

PERFECT HONEYMOON ESCAPE

What a fantastic place to spend our honeymoon. The Barn is exactly what we were looking for to escape the city life and bring us back to our Midwestern roots. as soon as we walked in the door this place felt like home. Not once did we lack for anything or feel like we were using someone eles’s things.                                                                                                    Anna, Thank you for your hospitality and attention to detail .And what a treat it was to meet Squishy. We are sad to go, but looking forward to seeing our fur babies soon and beginning the newest chapter of our lives together!! Hope to be back soon!!                                                                                    B & B

SERENE RETREAT

This is a lovely lovely place that feels like a private retreat even though it’s just a few miles from downtown. The house (a converted barn) is spacious, well equipped, and was spotlessly clean. The owner checked in regularly to see if we needed anything. Can’t say enough good things about our stay here. Best of all, a mother bear and her three cubs walked through the property almost every evening we were there.

AMAZING PLACE

A most pleasant time in this beautiful spiritual place. Quiet as we breathed in the morning as the sun rose above the mountains outside.Mark and I had the most wonderful,beautiful stay here.
Its warm, cozy, gorgeous, relaxing and perfect.We loved exploring Asheville but to be honest would love coming back “home” every night. This place is like a dream. Thank you for all the special touches.
My new husband grilled same amazing burgers and steaks as we danced under the stars. Thank you for your hospitality and your beautiful home and nature. Look forward to coming back.

A Heavenly Getaway Experience!

Anna, Words cannot express the magnitude of the Barn experience. From the moment I viewed the website description and photos I knew this was the place for our romantic anniversary month getaway. The peaceful surrounding truly passes all understanding. What an invigorating boost to the soul. I loved every detail of the Barn, especially the openness, one room flowing into the next like each relaxing moment. The shower, hot tub, fire pit, grill and kitchen provided all we needed and then some! Truly we do not want to leave this serene setting. Especially the spectacular sunrises and warm, cozy bed! Blessed, sacred, stillness…gratitude, peace, and love. Thank You!!!

Tranquility

What a beautiful place!!! We felt like we were at a spa the moment we walked in.Mini day trips were great but we couldn’t wait to get back to tranquility. The Barn has everything needed for a true get away.

We love the Jacuzzi, fire-pit, and furnishings.We also love that it is so close to everything. After the initial startle- we were able to watch mama bear and her cubs..Such Beauty!
We will be back ! Thank you for such an amazing time

Rejuvenating
Anna,
Thank you for being such a great host! The Barn is beautiful and rejuvenating – just what we needed! All the details are perfect additions to an already amazing space.
It was great to sit and look out at the mountains, hear the sounds of fall, and enjoy 70 degree weather.Although we are sad to be heading out we will hold this experience close to our hearts!
The next time we need a getaway we will be back!
AMAZING
Talk about a true Paradise, tucked into the mountains!
From the moment we arrived we felt at home and enjoyed our week thoroughly.
We loved the fact that we felt secluded but were 10-15 minutes away from so much.
You have obviously lavished considerable thoughts and time on creating a lovely and comfortable dwelling in a sublime setting-
All the little amenities of fresh flowers , wine and kitchen supplies provide a home like experience.
We can”t wait to come back one day and can”t thank Anna enough for her generous hospitality and kindness.
May God’s richest blessings be upon you and your family forever.
Bruce
We Will Be Back!!!!
As this was our first visit to the Asheville NC area.
We were not sure what to expect, however the property exceeded our expectations!
The views are amazing and sublime! We liked that we felt far removed from the hustle and bussle of life but we were only minutes from the excitement of downtown Asheville .
The most amazing thing was as we were enjoying our morning coffee we watched as 3 bears walked through the backyard. I would highly recommend staying here.
PURE MAGIC!!!
I don’t think we could have found a more perfect place to celebrate our 5th anniversary. The details and history of this house are truly special, and its theme and style create such a relaxing space.
I appreciate how close the Barn is to town (for food,supplies,etc.) .We drove out to Marshall and spent hours rafting the French Broad River. So Beautiful!!!
It was only a 40 minute drive and we we’re really happy to have had this experience.We got home in the afternoon with plenty of time to relax in the hot tub after hours of paddling down the river.
That hot tub felt incrediable. This mini vacation was right on pace and we felt happy and relaxed the whole time.
Anna did a wonderful job of checking in with us and making sure we ad everything we needed. Oh and yes, there are bears here! Closer then you may think. ( we saw two)!But they are beautiful animals just living their lives in this shared
mountain space…And Squishy admired from a distance 🙂

Perfect place to enjoy all of Asheville
There’s so much to say. Anna and The Barn are exceptional and top notch. 15 minutes away from downtown Asheville, food, and all the beer one could want. 10 minutes to Grove Park Inn. 5 minutes to the Blue Ridge Parkway. Superb location. The house is perfect with great views and all that you need to just unplug and enjoy the beauty of your surroundings. Sitting in the hot tub, or relaxing in one of the four outdoor seating areas. After you’ve partied hard downtown, just hang out and relax. The house is made for that. We went on our honeymoon and would love to return someday.

Mountain Sanctuary
We went for our honeymoon & everything was perfect!!! It was a true sanctuary with a beautiful view of the mountains. The interior stonework and warm lighting was exquisite. It had all the details needed to make you feel at home from cozy blankets and kitchenware to the extras to make it a beautiful romantic getaway from the outdoor hot tub to the open glass shower with intriquite stonework, rain shower head, all with gorgeous mountain views. The dowtown was only ten minutes away with an array of activities at our disposal. We enjoyed being right off Blue Ridge Parkway with scenic views, hearing some live bluegrass downtown, touring Biltmore, exploring waterfall hikes to having a quiet dinner in at The Barn. You felt so far away from everything which was wonderful to relax, yet the city with everything you need was only a short drive away. Anna who manages the property was a sweetheart, answering all questions we had. We’ll definitely be back!!!

Perfect in every way!
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay in this cabin. The owner ,Anna, has given attention to every small detail. Truly beautiful inside an out! What was most amazing to us was the location. A five mile ride down the mountain and we were in downtown Asheville. A one mile ride in the opposite direction and we were on the Blue Ridge Parkway. We also appreciated that Anna was always available for questions or suggestions. Since we planned our week long trip only three weeks before arrival the cabin was only available for three nights,. Next time we’ll be sure to plan more in advance so that we can stay here longer. Not an easy place to leave! Can’t wait to go back!

Comfort and Scenic Beauty Away from Crowds
The Barn at Mountain Meadows has been our Asheville home away from our Texas home three times, always affording us a relaxing retreat from noisy crowds yet near proximity to restaurants and shops of interest. Natural beauty surrounds The Barn; and all the amenities and photos listed are accurately portrayed. Spacious rooms, excellently-maintained and inviting, provide comfort; beautiful outdoor landscaping welcomes the guest as he arrives and occasional sights of bears and wild turkeys delight the eye. All the conveniences one requires are provided in the kitchen and outdoor amenities (such as firewood for the fire pit). The bedroom’s spacious closet provides extraordinary space for clothing and luggage, making it possible to keep the bedroom clutter-free. For those who dislike crowded hotels, elevators, inconvenient parking, and intrusion of housekeeping service, The Barn is the perfect sanctuary. It is within driving distance of towns of interest, such as Highlands, and close to all the tourism sites in Asheville. Anna’s excellent customer service through the years has included accommodating our need to postpone a visit. Comfort, quiet, scenic beauty, and proximity to Asheville’s many sites of interest, make The Barn a perfect destination for a cherished getaway, whether a mini-vacation or a celebration of a special event. (We usually book a week.)

We will be recommending to others & we will be back!!!

BEAUTIFUL PLACE TO CELEBRATE OUR NEW LIVES

We came to the Barn as newly wedded couple-what a beautiful place to celebrate our marriage! The Barn is the epitome of privacy and romance; it almost gives you permission to relax and be true to yourself. The view from the shower cannot be beat & you must look up while enjoying the hot tub.. Thank you for sharing this space with us.It was the backdrop to the start of our lives together. I hope to come back here for anniversary celebrations in the future…XOXO,

Britney & Bradley

Incredible Stay

This stay was truly incredible.WE will always cherish and remember our honeymoon in Asheville. From the second we hit the Blue Ridge Parkway up by Grandfather mountain , hiking around rough ridge to the night  before we left, spending the afternoon at Sierra Nevada’s Oktoberfest and bouncing brewery to brewery on the “South Slope” everything we did was incredible.   Anna and the Barn made the stay complete, always asking if we needed anything and checking in with us. The Barn is the perfect accompaniment  to a great city. A Hot Tub with a view after a long hike, to sitting outside reading a magazine under the sun and even seeing a little black bear who my wife dubbed “Mr. Cuddles”   .    Thank You !!!

Amanda & Tyler

MAGICAL AND PERFECT

This is our second stay at the Barn, WE love it so!!! This mountain is so Magical-The herb garden outside -You could make anything you need. The wildlife is beautiful – multiple bear sighting,butterflies,insects,frogs,& birds.. A little yoga on the hot tub pad is amazing with the mountains! Asheville’s food scene is also kick-in and we must always visit the Pinball Museum. The Barn is amazing in and out. THE Full Moon was amazing.                           Thank you!                                                                                                                                                                             Heather / Josh-KY

AMAZING STAY/ AMAZING PROPERTY

Anna, All I can say is THANK YOU for allowing us to stay at this amazing and YES “magical” retreat. My husband booked this property for a very special few days.. It was PERFECT!!! To the minute we started driving down the driveway- enveloped with lush trees to the second we opened the doors of the Barn.The views are amazing, the gardens and landscaping, beautiful. The walk in shower with a view was gorgeous and thank you for your commitment to the earth -for providing organic shampoos, soaps, detergents, etc. This means a lot to us . The Title of this property speaks true. The cabin was spotless and as other guests said previously felt very spa like . We loved the Hot Tub and the fire pit. The amenities – more then you could ask for. The cabin is very close to downtown yet very private and peaceful. Thank you again Anna , your attentiveness was very appreciated. We will be returning in the future
