Upscale Eco Friendly Vacation Rental: Rolling Hills Retreat


On Tuesday, Ginger and I took a trip out to one of our newest (and most recently built) properties, Rolling Hills Retreat. Created by Target Builders, Inc, this is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath luxury eco-friendly home in Weaverville, NC - just 20 minutes north of Asheville.


Living in Asheville, it's hard not to start using some of the new-agey lingo, but the perfect description for the feeling inside this home truly is "good energy." For me, I think it's the natural light, bamboo flooring, brightly painted walls and an open living space that create such a feel-good ambiance.The whole home is contemporary, but comfortable (I don't usually like contemporary, but this works). No stiff angular chairs here! A good bit of the current furniture came from Mobilia, a great home furnishings store in downtown Asheville. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances and beautiful green finishing on the concrete countertops.

The master bath feels like walking into a five-star hotel spa bathroom. The tub features a great private view of the natural surroundings, has waterfall-style taps and is jetted for a jacuzzi experience. The shower has multiple taps as well, and you can choose which and what directions you'd like to use.

The surroundings are beautiful. There are some neighbors around, but the property retains the pastoral, private country setting feel. The neighbors 'across the way' have a barn down on their property (the little red building) for their horses, and will sometimes ride on their acreage.

Entertainment amenities include a large HD flatscreen TV and full entertainment system with an iPod dock, and an installed stereo speaker system throughout the house. There is a great deck overlooking the rolling hills, and a grill to cook out and dine al fresco. The home also has a built-in air filtration system and humidity control.

Aside from the great craftsmanship and interior amenities, the home has many eco-friendly features. Radient floor heat, solar panels, individual air conditioning/heating units and a wood burning fireplace are just a few.
