Description ↑↓

When we were looking for a great mountain getaway close to Asheville, we realized within seconds that this was it. With phenomenal mountain views as far as the eye can see, this beautifully remodeled home has all the updates we could want and so much more! The open floor plan, vaulted ceilings, and lots of big windows let in a lot of light and make the home feel spacious and comfortable. We just installed a delightful eight person hot tub. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do!

We have a direct line to the cell tower across the valley which means unlimited high speed internet for excellent TV streaming connectivity. Our Sling account provides simultaneous connection to three TVs (there are a total of five in the house) and we provide a tvPlus account for lots of viewing options. You can connect to your own Amazon or Netflix account, as well as Google Play.

We provide lots of coffee options in the kitchen, including a Nespresso machine with milk frother, a conventional coffee machine, and all the utensils and cookware you need to prepare delicious meals during your visit. We also have lots of entertainment options including an Xbox, board games, books, ping pong and a pool table.

While we are here we love to explore the many opportunities that Asheville and the surrounding communities have to offer. Check out the River Arts District (one of our favorites) as well as the Biltmore Estate, the Blue Ridge Parkway, downtown Asheville with all its shopping and restaurants, and the miles of hiking and mountain bike trails that are a short drive away. Pisgah National Forest is a favorite destination, and you will love the other national and state forests like Gorges National Park and DuPont State Forest that are an easy day trip from our location.

If you love restaurants, downtown Asheville is a prime destination. Some of our favorites include Sovereign Remedies, Posana and Bouchon, a French restaurant serving French comfort food. For some River Arts District eats, try the Bull and Beggar, 12 Bones, the Smoky Park Supper Club and All Souls Pizza. Other great offerings include Vinnie's Italian and Avenue M, located in North Asheville.

Breweries and bars abound. The River Arts District boasts New Belgium, set in a beautiful new building overlooking the French Broad River. Other favorites include Green Man downtown, Asheville Pizza and Brewing, and Sierra Nevada close by the airport. Most breweries also offer tours where you can get some of the history and taste the offerings.

MAXIMUM SIX ADULTS. PLEASE NO PARTIES OR EVENTS AT THIS RENTAL. This is our private home, and we ask that you respect it as such. Guests who have parties or events will be asked to leave, and no refund will be issued.

Our home is managed by Pete Key Properties, and they are here to help you with anything you need to make your stay comfortable or if you need help with something. Please feel free to contact them with any questions you may have.

Magical mountain view

By: Trip Date: 2019-08-11
We had a great stay at this wonderful house. The view was spectacular of the valley and mountains beyond. We even got to see a full rainbow over an already picture-perfect landscape!

We had everything we needed and more and the owner was very responsive to any questions we had. We enjoyed going into Asheville which was a short, pretty drive into town.

We loved our stay and would come back in a heartbeat. Thank you!

Great location as advertised the views were beautiful.

Relaxing Girls Weekend

By: Trip Date: 2019-05-17
We had an amazing time at Silver Spoon! The house was clean and comfortable with everything we needed. There were so many high end touches that made us feel like we were at a luxury resort. The hot tub, espresso maker, reclining beds, fire pit, and game room were some of our favorite features. The three level deck gave us plenty of space to enjoy the beautiful scenery. It was only about a 20 minute drive to Asheville. We were all sad to leave and can’t wait to come back.
Manager Response
We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to having you come stay again.

Perfect girls trip!

Great Stay

The house was beautiful, well kept, and clean. My friends and I had a great time. The hot tub was one of the better ones I’ve ever seen, and the deck was great to relax on.

Ideal Mountain Retreat

By: Trip Date: 2019-04-01
This is a beautiful home. Great layout, top-of-the-line appliances, everything new or in excellent condition. The beds are comfortable and the place is very clean and well-maintained. The view is phenomenal, and can be enjoyed from the hot tub. We happened to get up early to see the sunrise on our last day, and also saw the meteor that passed over on Apr.4...just incredible. The location is ideal, a quick drive to downtown Ashville, yet feels peaceful and remote.
Manager Response
It sounds like you had the perfect stay and saw the meteor how wonderful! We appreciate you renting and hope you can come back again.

Celebration trip

By: Trip Date: 2019-04-04
My sister, her two daughters, my daughter and myself made a trip to NC for a celebration of my sister completing all her chemo and radiation for cancer. It was a wonderful trip with lots of memories. The house was located pretty close to everything. We loved it
Manager Response
What a wonderful thing to be able to celebrate! We are so glad that you all enjoyed your stay.

WE FOUND OUR NEW WEEKEND GETAWAY SPOT!

By: Trip Date: 2019-02-14
I looked for WEEKS for the perfect spot for a weekend getaway and stumbled upon Pete Key's "Silver Spoon" property and all I can say is WOW. It is only minutes from downtown Asheville, but far enough to have the peace and views of the mountains and valleys. The house is a great size for a family or a few couples and its meticulously maintained. We will DEFINITELY be staying here again when we return to Asheville!
Manager Response
We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay! We look forward to having you back anytime.
