Description Description
Ready to leave your worries at the door and step into a sumptuous vacation? Experience the best of Asheville at High Top Mountain Retreat, an elegant modern lodge featuring year-round views of Mount Pisgah and a luxury spa area with a hot tub and sauna. The great room's expanse of windows, soaring wood ceilings, and two-story stone hearth take center stage in a home that has been meticulously designed to provide the ultimate in comfort. Find your favorite spot to take in the million-dollar view -- it's visible from nearly every room in the house, including the main-level bedroom suite where you'll wake up to a mountain vista out the window. The fully equipped kitchen, designed with functionality and elegance in mind, is a wonderful place to prepare meals with gorgeous custom cherry cabinets, double ovens, and extra counter space, along with a granite wet bar with leather barstools. After a long day of mountain adventures, kick back in the lower level living area where the woodstove will warm your bones while you watch the huge TV. Each room at High Top Mountain Retreat shows special attention to detail, including original artwork, professional decor, and high-end furnishings. The main level suite's bathroom boasts breathtaking cuts of green marble in the countertops and shower, cherry cabinets to match the kitchen, and a deep soak tub worthy of a long bubble bath. On the lower level, two spacious bedrooms share a full bath and access to the patio. Lounge outdoors on the wrap-around deck or in the spa area that's tucked away on the side of the house and features an outdoor shower for rinsing. You'll feel refreshed and ready to relax after a cleansing sit in the sauna followed by a dip in the hot tub. The raised fire pit is perfect for creating family time or a romantic evening with your loved one. Offering both the seclusion of wooded privacy and the security of a neighborhood location, High Top Mountain Retreat enjoys a paved driveway for all-weather access and is remarkably close to groceries and restaurants. A stay at High Top Mountain Retreat is a true getaway, with upscale Asheville style!

Spa retreat! Far away and so close.
Whether you want the to totally relax or get out and enjoy all that Asheville and the mountains have to offer you can’t go wrong with this home. It’s spacious and beautifully decorated. From the well stocked kitchen, cozy giant bed to the deck (views!) and the sauna/ hot tub you’ve got options for maximum enjoyment and relaxation. We especially appreciate the clear directions for the appliances and smart TVs and the thoughtful suggestions for things to do and places to eat.

This house is beautiful - inside and out.
This house is beautiful - inside and out. The views and location are great! Total privacy! The hot tub, sauna, and fire pit are a huge plus! Very comfortable furniture. Incredible house - we can't wait to vacation here again!

Amazing views! Lots of wildlife.
Amazing views! Lots of wildlife. A family of turkeys visited us every day. The place is just like the pictures. The very well-stocked kitchen felt like home. The beds were extremely comfortable. The very steep driveway took some getting used to, as most driveways in the area are steep. Recommend all-wheel drive in winter.

This was a great stay!
This was a great stay! My family and I had an amazing time! The house is gorgeous and meant to be there forever! The sauna, fireplace, and hot tub were divine!

We want to come back!
This property was beautiful, spacious, and perfect for visiting with our family members. An airport and grocery store were nearby even though the house had a secluded mountaintop chalet feel. We want to come back!

Loved the spot!
Loved the spot! Awesome fire pit, the sauna was great, sat out on the porch for cool air and sunset. Booked for 4 days, but didn’t want to leave — the host was nice enough to have us stay for another night. 5/5

Perfect Weekend Getaway!
I wanted someplace to stay that was close enough to downtown to enjoy the breweries and restaurants, but remote enough to have a natural setting and great views, and this house was fit the bill perfectly. Just 20 minutes from downtown Asheville, yet far enough away to enjoy the sweet sounds of birdsong, the breeze rustling through the trees and the moonlight night sky. The view is great! And the hot tub, sauna and outdoor shower really add to the relaxing experience. The beds are very comfortable too. I felt like I was staying in a ski chalet in summer.

Mountain Retreat
What a great place to stay for a wonderful weekend in Asheville. After an active day of exploring downtown, the River Arts District and the Blue Ridge Parkway, it was so nice to cool off in the outdoor shower and relax in the hot tub and sauna. The evening was made complete with a great dinner on the deck with its extraordinary view. This spacious home is so comfortable and relaxing that I want to return soon. I highly recommend it!

Fantastic experience!
I really enjoyed my stay at High Top Mountain Retreat! What a beautiful home. The high ceilings and the tall windows provided a spectacular view of the Pisgah Mountain range. With it's warm and welcoming décor I felt my cares melt away as I stepped inside. The hot tub a sauna helped me really relax and unwind. The kitchen is set up for some serious cooking, and the gas grill and outdoor dining make for a perfect meal. Plus it's only a 20 minute drive/Uber ride to downtown Asheville or the Biltmore Estate and 10 minutes to the hip entertainment scene of West Asheville. I am looking forward to visiting again!

High Top Mountain Retreat is the perfect name!
The beauty, privacy and amenities of this property were just what I needed to relax and unwind. The closeness to all downtown Asheville attractions and fantastic restaurants was an added plus. I so enjoyed my stay and plan on returning soon!

Everything You Will Want!
This house has everything you will want for a stay in the Asheville area … it is spacious, up-to-date in every way, and the kitchen is big enough for at least 2+ cooks. There is nothing that is over looked in making the guests feel at home and comfortable … just in case you want to hang out here more than in downtown Asheville. The outside amenities are enough to make you feel like you are at a resort in case you don’t want to leave for day tripping. You will love the view from the back deck … beautiful. One more note … everything looks like it is new! Enjoy
