Cheryl M. This modern farmhouse was perfect for our annual family girl trip weekend. We wanted a place not far from our homes where we could safely spend time together. It turned out to be possibly our favorite weekend together. The house is exactly as described and was perfectly cleaned. It has an open floor plan that allowed the 8 of us plenty of room to gather, eat, and play games. The house is very easy to get to and is within minutes of restaurants and shopping. We made good use of the outdoor grill and the fire pit. I have to mention that there is a cow pasture behind the house which at times could be a bit stinky, but we loved seeing the cows and it made for even more laughter from our group. We had an issue getting the TV’s to work but I only mention it in order to brag on how instantly TurnKey responded and corrected the issue. This is my second experience using TurnKey and I would not hesitate to rent through them again. We hope to return here soon!

My two friends and I had a lovely 5-week stay in this rental. The house is comfortable and clean, and turnkey was very responsive when we had questions.

My favorite thing about this rental is the backyard. The back porch is huge with a shaded area, couches, and a table and chairs. We spent a lot of time reading, working, and cooking on the grill. We also enjoyed evenings around the fire pit. And there was enough space for our dogs to run around.

This rental abuts a cow farm, so there are cows mooing and occasionally you get a whiff of manure. This did not bother me at all, but if you are particularly sensitive or picky about cows/farms, this may not be the place for you.

The beds in the two back rooms (1 king, 1 queen) are very comfortable. The bunk bed in the 3rd bedroom is pretty uncomfortable for adults, but is probably great for children. There were lots of sheets, towels, pillows, and blankets, which was fantastic. There were also lots of staples available in the kitchen (spices, condiments), which made cooking easy and convenient.

Mills River is a nice area. There are 5 breweries within a 15 minute drive, great takeout nearby (pizza and Latin American food), and an ice cream place. Groceries and gas are 2 minutes by car which is also really nice. I’m addition, it is less than 30 minutes to downtown Asheville, Brevard, and Hendersonville, so it’s a nice central spot. From Brevard you can drive into Pisgah National Forest and onto the Blue Ridge Parkway. You can also access the parkway through Asheville.

I will say that there is not a ton of hiking in Mills River itself. Turkey Pen Gap is the closest, and you have to drive up a long dirt road to get to it, so it takes awhile to actually access the trails. There are two nearby parks (Mills River park and Fletcher park) which have dog parks and paved walking trails that are fairly short. There are no sidewalks or walking areas within walking distance
