Whiskey Rock has been entertaining travelers for years & has become one of the most popular homes in our Yonder luxury portfolio, and very quickly became one of the most requested!

As for Whiskey Rock, this fully modern farmhouse is located on a 50+ acre mountain estate, on your own private mountainside. It is truly a mountain retreat getaway, or blissful hideaway.

Kids love getting out in and around the expansive estate property, & explore the other rolling outdoor areas. The expansive patio & deck areas are all around the property. All of these afford additional outdoor space to relax & unwind. While everyone enjoys the outdoors and more, you can pull up a chair and take in the view, (the long & short range views are spectacular!!), observe the night as it fills with stars, and watch the fire flies come out to play in your backyard. Take a seat and enjoy the sound of nature and the serenity in your own private paradise at the top of the world. There is a spring-fed pond, private areas, and there is also a grassy, flat area for the kids to run around & play! Whiskey Rock offers lots of acreage for nature walks and exploring, and other exercise on the mountain without leaving the property. Besides bordering additional hiking in the Pisgah National Forest, there is a community park with a pool just about 5 minutes from the estate called Big Ivy Community Club, The outdoor pool is open from 12:00 to 6:00 Monday-Saturday and 1:00 to 6:00 on Sunday, and costs $3.00/person, free for ages 3 and under. The park is great w/ free basketball, volleyball, & playground. You are also just down the road a piece from Navitat Ziplines, and down the mountain from Wolf Ridge Ski Resort.

Perfect in every way!
This luxury modern estate was perfect for our small family reunion in every way. The main house is spacious with lots of light, pretty views and plenty of bedrooms, baths and gathering spaces. The location was also a boon. We wanted to be in Barnardsville to be closer to family members with the ability to travel into Asheville or Weaverville at our leisure. This retreat nestles into the base of the Pisgah National Forest (so you can easily hike or drive to take in its splendor) but is also located pretty conveniently to a nice meal out or catching some other sights in the nearby cities. Our visit was mostly about our family gathering, so we were so thrilled to have a place we could cook our own meals. The kitchen was a dream, with plenty of counters, appliances and gadgets you want and need, and when they said the kitchen was fully stocked, it actually WAS! (My experience with other places we've rented is the kitchen is woefully lacking...not so here). There are two dining areas, plus seating at one kitchen counter /island combo that accommodates everyone easily. The main living space also seated everyone comfortably. The bedrooms were lovely, and the main suite had an adjoining bathroom with a jacuzzi bathtub to die for. The minute I saw it, I knew I'd be taking a bubble bath and it did not disappoint! It was cold when we visited, so we did not use the inviting outdoor spaces—fire rings, porches, etc. and we also didn't need the two additional "cabins" but I peeked in the windows, and they were so charming! It also made for a nice walk to get out and meander along the road where the cabins are and see some of the former yoga platforms and outdoor recreation spaces. If you have dogs, they'd be welcome here, which is also a nice bonus. I HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend this gorgeous retreat, especially if you have a crew of folks you're trying to bring together. You won't be disappointed!

AMAZING WHISKEY ROCK
We had the pleasure of staying at Whiskey Rock this past weekend and OH MY is all I can say!! It was truly peaceful and absolutely beautiful. It is tucked away in the mountains surrounded by trails and stunning scenery!! It is a short trip to Ashville with access to fun breweries, restaurants and shops. The main house is completely stocked with everything you need so pick up some wine and snacks and you are all set!! The cabins are perfect too! Bring your hiking boots and hike to the top of the mountain for some of the most amazing views of the North Carolina mountains!! My only regret is that we didn't stay longer!!

Perfect peaceful mountain getaway!
Whisky Rock is amazing! The home is spacious, very comfortable and in pristine condition. The outdoor surroundings and views are spectacular, and great hiking trails are right there. It is also close to Asheville for shopping and dining. I wanted to stay longer! A stay at Whisky Rock comes highly recommended from my crew!!

Relax and indulge at Whiskey Rock! Nature, gathering, and great home!
This is sincerely the most relaxing and luxurious properties I have ever stayed… Whiskey Rock is incredible. Totally immersed in the beautiful North Carolina mountains – with spectacular views and really good hiking & exploring. The house itself is open and well appointed – 4 bedrooms and the best of everything (and very cozy!) Instantly felt like home, and great space for family to gather –large meals and space for entertaining. The outdoor space is incredible – with multiple lawns, fire pits, and a very serene pond. Property also includes two fully separate cabins and a large “event deck”. We discovered a short cut to the Blue Ridge Parkway (with 4WD) – and also very close to Asheville and quaint Weaverville for days exploring, shopping, and dining. Hosts and property managers were very accommodating and especially friendly. My only complaint: we didn’t get to stay long enough! Already planning a return visit… Highly recommend. Come to the Mountains and enjoy WHISKEY ROCK! Thanks!!

Peaceful mountain retreat!
Whiskey Rock is a beautiful property! We stayed in the main house, but also saw two cabins on the property – which would be perfect for larger families or groups. The mountains were so peaceful. We enjoyed hanging out by the koi pond and the multiple fire pits. We also spent a lot of time hiking around the property. The house has a large kitchen and multiple dining areas, which was great when we didn’t want to leave for meals. But, it is also close enough to enjoy the breweries and restaurants in Weaverville and Asheville. We can’t wait to come back and enjoy Whiskey Rock again!

Great Stay at Whiskey Rock
We stayed at Whiskey Rock with our family in December. What an absolutely gorgeous and unique property! The owners have thought of everything to make your vacation enjoyable. Our teenage boys had a blast staying in one of the cabins while the adults stayed in the main house. We enjoyed sledding right on the property after Mother Nature surprised us with a beautiful snowfall. We also enjoyed hiking right on the property. We will definitely be back to Whiskey Rock!

Map
About the neighbourhood
Location: Private home located on 50+ extremely private acres, bordering the Pisgah National Forest, 15 minutes outside of Weaverville, & only 30 minutes north of downtown Asheville. You are 45 minutes to Asheville Regional airport, and 35 minutes to the gates of Biltmore Estate. You are also an easy 20 minutes from downtown Mars Hill. It is fairly easy to access the home, via easy, paved roads, until reaching the private gravel road. The home affords year round access to any and all vehicles, but may require an 'all-wheel' or 4 x 4 drive vehicle if ice or snow are present. The driveway/private gravel road does have an incline approach to the home, so in the Winter exercise caution with potential ice, and year-round we suggest front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive vehicles. Please speak with Yonder representative for more information and mountain driving tips.
