Wintersun.. A World Class Private Estate Atop A Mountain 15 min from Asheville

Family-friendly vacation home with water park and spa tub
Welcome to your very own piece of paradise only 15 minutes from Asheville, North Carolina where you will enjoy your time away from the cares of this world. Located on a 130-acre gated estate, Wintersun sets itself apart from other mountain homes.

As soon as you drive through the gates, you will pass a rushing trout stream, drive through a lush green valley, cross over the bridge by the trickle down ponds, pass the horses playing in a mountain meadow and drive up and away to the fern and flower-bedecked verandah, which offers a comfortable seat and a breathtaking view.

The environment is a contrast in expansiveness and intimacy. From the verandah mountain ranges recede into smoky blue shadows, while on the arbor side the stone garden climbs 50 feet flanking a 24-foot waterfall surrounded by an enclosed lawn.

Inside the elegant country home are spacious rooms furnished with oriental rugs, antiques, huge stone fireplaces, books galore, with deep chairs and sofas for leisurely pursuits. All 5 of Wintersun's bedrooms are beautifully appointed with fine furnishings, designer fabrics, lush linens, down comforters, private baths, cozy seating, and fireplaces, with fabulous views of the blue ridge mountains.

For disc golf lovers, in addition to 4 miles of private hiking trails there are 2 private disc golf courses which have been rated as one of the best private courses on the east coast.

Excited Friends: we had 5 couples, all very long term and close friends. We travel annually .
Could not have been better. Our contact person, Judy, was very responsive and helpful. 5 bedrooms with in suite baths is special to all of us. The capacity of the kitchens excellent and having a dinning table that comfortably set 12 added so much to our trip. The casual feeling, large porch and seating inside and out added so much.

Perfect Family Getaway
The house and grounds were beyond our expectations. We spent a week in Asheville preparing for our daughters wedding. Everything we could ever need was there, comfortable beds, dishes, barware, luxurious linens, incredible library, impeccably decorated, peaceful, tranquil and inspiring. We will be back to explore the many trails and the Labrinth. Wintersun is more than you could imagine or hope for and it made our wedding week perfect! Thank you Judy!

Couples Golf Getaway
Property was beautiful and well maintained. Excellent location. Only complaint was that the outdoor seating area in back by the waterfall needed to be cleaned. The chairs and cushions were dirty and there were cobwebs on the porch columns.

Royalty in the NC mountains
If you ever want to vacation and feel immersed in the luxury of royalty, this is where you need to stay. This place is beyond beautiful; captivating views inside and out with every amenity you could possibly imagine. The description captures it all: A World Class Private Resort. One of my friends compared it to Nemacolin Woodlands Resort. Had we actually hired a caterer during our visit, I would've sworn we could have been in a movie set from Downton Abbey. I look forward to the opportunity to return with another group of friends to share this incredible experience.
