Description Description
Storybrooke Place is a destination unto itself, as though it was lifted right out of a fairytale book and relocated to the Blue Ridge Mountains. A showcase home that has been meticulously designed and built by an artisan craftsman, its spectacular Arts and Crafts construction shows exquisite Spanish flair and enchanting details at every turn. Three stacked stone hearths, old-growth wide plank wood floors, and antique stained-glass windows create the mountain lodge grandeur of this stunning architectural masterpiece, while the interior design sets the standard among extraordinary retreats.

One of Asheville's premiere vacation rental properties, Storybrooke Place offers guests two separate homes with a total of five bedrooms. The beautifully landscaped estate, set in a "cathedral of trees," features custom stone patios, a raised fire pit, and a private hot tub, among many more delightful amenities awaiting your discovery.

With numerous gathering spaces, including a spacious great room, a cozy sunroom with a wood fireplace, and a lower level entertainment area, the main house reflects togetherness and tranquility in its design. The gourmet cook’s kitchen features a superior performance Viking gas range equipped with a griddle that's perfect for making morning pancakes. The entertainment area is a haven for relaxation and camaraderie with a Smart TV and SONOS Wireless HiFi multi-room music system (with a portable tablet control center) providing the best in media technology, and a restored circa 1905 Brunswick billiards table that sets the ultimate stage for an epic pool tournament among friends. Even the most discerning of guests appreciate that no expense has been spared at Storybrooke Place - touches like the main bath's deep soak tub and heated stone floor make a stay here a step above the rest.

Discover your new favorite sanctuary at The Cottage, which sits adjacent to the main home. Befitting whether you need a quiet spot with its own fully equipped kitchen and TV, a private office space, or an impressive in-law suite for a family gathering, this charming home is its own one-bedroom paradise. Stepping off of the back porch of The Cottage, you find yourself in a fenced English garden, ideal for afternoon reading or just listening to the birds chirp.

Only moments from popular area attractions such as the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Biltmore Estate, yet in a world of its own, Storybrooke Place offers you and your family and friends the ultimate luxury getaway. Enjoy special moments like grilling on the kitchen patio's Big Green Egg charcoal grill, roasting marshmallows over the raised fire pit, and taking a long, much-deserved soak in the bubbling hot tub. When they're available, multi-colored fresh eggs from the on-site chickens make for a delicious treat! Suitable for fun-loving families, adventurers, and dreamers, Storybrooke Place has been carefully crafted to make your Western North Carolina vacation a truly unforgettable experience!

Location Details
Hidden in a quiet South Asheville neighborhood like a special secret waiting to be discovered, Storybrooke Place is centrally located but feels like a private country retreat. Make use of the home's collection of hiking guides and area maps to find local trails and waterfalls! The Blue Ridge Parkway entrance is only five miles away, and the Biltmore Estate is just nine miles up the road. After a busy day spent exploring the area, Storybrooke Place is an easy drive home for you to refresh and then head out again to downtown Asheville, where you'll enjoy farm-to-table dining establishments, craft breweries, theater, art galleries, and a vibrant music scene. This Asheville vacation rental is located in Arden and is approximately 20 minutes to downtown Asheville, 2,384ft above sea level.

Important Property Notes
• For the security of our guests and property, Storybrooke Place includes an exterior video security system for the driveway and grounds (excluding hot tub area).
• Storybrooke Place is an amazing year-round destination! During the winter months, the gardens become dormant and the "cathedral of trees" shed their leaves, revealing a closer view of the neighboring homes. At the same time, the mountains become visible and the fireplaces bring the lodge to life with a warm glow!
• Guests will need to supply their own firewood to make use of the wood fireplace, wood stoves, fire pit and their own charcoal to make use of the Charcoal Grill.

Property Cancellation Policy
Please note that this property’s Non-Refundable Period is 31 days prior to arrival. If your reservation is made within this period, it will be non-refundable from the time of booking.

Each reservation comes complete with our exclusive Mountain Discovery Pass, which now includes a Biltmore Estate pass - in addition to seasonal activities such as snow tubing, whitewater rafting, and skiing!

Enjoy Asheville the way it is meant to be enjoyed, and let us spoil you with activities and the best customer service in Asheville!

Celebrated an Impending Marriage
This past weekend 10 men came together to celebrate the impending marriage of Jon Martin to Julia Morris. This was the perfect place for us to reflect on all the little moments that brought us together. Laughs were had, a few beers were consumed, and we were reminded of the joy of camaraderie and family. Thank you for providing such a lovely space for such a special occasion in our lives!

Celebrated Life, Love & Happiness
Thank you for sharing your gorgeous home & property for our family wedding getaway! We were able to have several generations stay together & celebrate life, love and happiness. We slept, played, cooked, relaxed, laughed and smiled together. Our family even surprised me with an early birthday cake & ice cream! So thankful our boys found each other at VT Corps of Cadets & joined our families forever. Thank you for your generosity & hospitality!

The Kitchen Was Perfect!
Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us! We had the best time sitting around the fire, hot tubing, playing games, and exploring Asheville. The kitchen was perfect for cooking Thanksgiving Dinner! These memories will last a lifetime.

Charming and Quiet
This is a beautiful, charming property in a quiet, peaceful location. The house was perfect for our family, and my husband kept raving about it. We hope to stay again!

Close to Hiking & Downtown Asheville!
We stayed for our 10 year office retreat and the house was perfect for our team of 7. The house was gorgeous and had everything you could need. The location is perfect - close to hiking and downtown Asheville. Cannot wait to stay here again.

Even More Amazing Than the Pictures!
This property was even more amazing than the pictures. The attention to detail from woodwork and door knobs to multiple outdoor areas was perfect. Great house for a family vacation or a getaway with friends. Can’t wait to see the property when the weather warms up.
Angela M - Posted: 6/27/2022 - Stayed from: 4/8/2022 to 4/11/2022
Lovely Home!
Lovely home with room inside and outside for a large party. Perfect for a family reunion or wedding/graduation HQ. Very functional kitchen made it easy to prepare birthday feast for my mother in law. A little off the beaten track for downtown Asheville in a very suburban setting, but not a long drive from town/sights.

Best Week Ever!
Our stay is one of the best ever. We roasted marshmallows and I like the chickens too. We also went into the hot tub. Best week ever!

Deidra J from Evans, GA - Posted: 1/20/2022
Spectacular property!! Loved your app - One of the most magical and beautiful places on earth! Thank you for a much needed get away -- and a perfect getaway it was!!

Beautiful property and very convenient to all of Asheville and its area attractions.
Julie W from Winter Park, FL - Posted: 12/9/2019
This is a beautiful home and was just as advertised. Everything was very clean and well-managed. I would highly recommend this staying at this home.
Peter K from Nashville, TN - Posted: 11/27/2019
"We had a wonderful stay at Storybrooke Cottage with no detail left undone. The home and guest quarters were beautiful with very amenity to make us feel welcomed and comfortable. The yard was such an enjoyable place to sit...whether dining, having a bonfire or in the hot tub. The grounds were as spectacular as the house. We loved the neighborhood as well...VERY private with nice rolling streets for our morning walks. The location was convenient to downtown, the Biltmore and all that Asheville has to offer. Perfect place for us to stay!"
Jeanne P from Chanhassen, MN - Posted: 11/27/2019
"Great for multiple families. Incredible, very secluded landscaped yard."
Kellen C from Charleston, SC - Posted: 9/19/2019
Storybook Place is a beautiful retreat. The house and grounds are extraordinary. All of the bedrooms are large and very comfortable. The cottage is a dream come true. The reclaimed wood and millwork add beautiful touches. No expense was spared in the construction of the house. It was fun to wander around and see all of the special touches. There are numerous places outside to gather and enjoy the surroundings. Great house for family gatherings or for 5-6 couples spending a weekend together. Location also is very convenient. Carolina Mornings was very easy to deal with and very responsive.
Marshall B from USA - Posted: 9/2/2019
"I rented Storybook Place for my husband's 40th birthday and was blown away by the property. The house was gorgeous and so thoughtfully designed! It had more than most rentals I have rented, well stocked, I truly felt like someone had set up the kitchen just for me! We were able to host our friends so comfortable with all of the space and the extra cabin. We even had a bit of a travel blip and everyone at Carolina Mornings was so incredibly helpful and supportive. The deposit was mailed back in full in a timely manner, without worry. My only disappointment was we booked in February and could not enjoy the amazing outdoor dining area but makes a fantastic reason to go back when it's warmer! The worst part was having to leave, I wanted to stay forever! HANDS DOWN BEST RENTAL EVER!"
Erin K from USA - Posted: 2/27/2019
"My family enjoyed this beautiful and charming home. It was perfect for so many reasons but most importantly was a comfortable and easy setting to share time together. It's equipped with everything you could need and the quality of the appliances, workmanship, and decor was quite impressive. We plan to return again!"
Karmyn from Vienna, WV - Posted: 2/27/2019
"This home is beautifully appointed with top quality mission style furnishings complete with custom upgrades in perfect mountain house character. The craftsmanship, interior design, and grounds were impeccable. Stunning yet comfortable. Hard to leave."
Traveler's from USA - Posted: 2/27/2019
Amazing property for everyone! Beautiful house with so many great features and amenities. Everyone in the group loved the property and wants to be back soon! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Traveler's from USA - Posted: 2/27/2019
"We arrived on 12/13/18 for my wife's 40th. There were six of us at the house. I cannot say enough positive things about the home. The location was perfect, close enough to Uber everywhere. The house was comfy and adorable - with so many hidden spots to lounge and relax. I literally want to buy this house! And the separate guest suite was like a Chip and Jo property from HGTV. Thank you for the perfect experience. We are already eager to come back with family in the next couple of years!!!"
Tim T from Waunakee, WI - Posted: 2/27/2019
