Best of Both Worlds

Located just twelve miles from the epicurean center of Asheville, the Carolina Jewel rest on a green meadow with a babbling brook

The Carolina Jewel has 5 bedrooms in the historic 1845 Victorian Farmhouse and an additional 2 bedrooms in the Creekside Crystal Cottage on the property across the creek underneath a canopy of trees. Each of the suites in the Historic house, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, has its’ own unique charm. 

The spacious cottage sit across the creek connecting the lawns with a footbridge.   All 7 bedrooms have private baths. The oldest portion of the home, the Great Room that was built in 1845, has rustic roughhewn logs and its fireplace is made of rocks pulled from the fields outside. Adjacent to the great room is the fully stocked modern kitchen and laundry room for your use. In 1880 an addition of the Victorian architecture was added to the log cabin to accommodate the growing family. A major interior renovation in 2001 added luxury bathrooms without disturbing the charm of the bygone era.  The spacious cottage sits just across the creek with a footbridge connecting the two lawns.

Ladies Golf Reunion

Date of Stay:

Hi Eva, Just a note to thank you for all you did to make our group of thirteen ladies thoroughly enjoy our stay at the Carolina Jewel and the cottage. We all appreciated how completely well furnished and stocked you had the kitchen. From spices to K cups it was all there. We loved it and enjoyed the fact we could all "hang" out together for breakfasts and evening cocktail hours at the Carolina Jewell. Many an hour was spent reminiscing about our past golf trips and just plain getting "caught up" since it had been six years since many of us had seen one another. The bedrooms were a delight. The linens were really "over the top" and the fact we each had bathrobes was really beyond expectations! One of our ladies had never experienced a vacation rental and we had to inform her that the Carolina Jewel is not a typical vacation rental - that it is over the top in comfort and details. It was a totally delightful experience and you know how stressed I was about the whole event! Getting thirteen women to agree on a destination and place was challenging but worth it. Many, many thanks are due for your wonderful accommodations in both the cottage and the house. Lynn

Wonderful Birthday surprise

Date of Stay:

Dear Eva & Michael ~ Oh gee ~ so much has happened since we left your beautiful Valley. The weekend was a tremendous success.  All of the 14 loved it.  And Sherm was totally taken by surprise.  It could not have been a better birthday present for Sherm than to see his beautiful family together in your wonderful place. Everyone loved the Carolina Jewel and you both have done such a thoughtful job holding the history of the Farm House and yet making it comfortable and beautiful for your guests – perfect. And the kids didn’t want to leave – Presley the littlest one cried.  We reasured her we would all be together soon.  She didn’t want anyone to leave including herself. Forgive this late response to a glorious moment in our lives.  My favorite thing was sitting for meals at that handsome wooden table surrounded by all the children and grandchildren.  So each meal was a celebration and infact we celebrated three birthdays – Annalise who turned 17 on the Brady turned 11 and Sherm turned 75 – his was the biggest celebration!  I love Leo’s ~ and came by it honestly as my Dad – the first Leo was the Lion in the Wizard of Oz…and somehow all my life I have been surrounded by Leo’s!  This is a good thing! So thank you for PERFECTION!

Well, where do I start?! First, the owners, Eva & Michael, are as Awesome as the property, and that's saying A LOT! They are so friendly & accommodating ... they just want everyone to be happy & comfortable when staying at their Carolina Jewel. We had a family of 14 stay there for 5 nights to celebrate my husband's 70th birthday: 9 adults and 5 children ages 9, 6, 4, 2 & 12 weeks. The property is just beautiful, the house and cottage are so charming, and the layout of both places accommodated everyone beautifully! And, a big plus was the children rarely played with their iPads & we never turned on a tv ... couldn't even get them to have a movie night ... too much to do outside playing in the brook, playing yard games, making smores around the fire pit, just running around the incredible yard. The location of The Carolina Jewel also gives you close access to so much entertainment like zip lining, tubing, etc. Many wonderful memories were made here for our family that will last a lifetime!!!

Above and Beyond!

Date of Stay:

Our family tries to get together annually, but it has been several years since we have been able to pull it off due to health issues. 2017 was special gathering for us and we wanted a special location. I cannot express how lucky we were to pick the Carolina Jewel Properties and Eva and Michael! The property is the perfect combination of 1800s historical charm and modern convenience. The owners are two of the nicest folks we have met in our many years of renting VRBO properties. My sister commented that it was like staying in a fine hotel - every convenience was available from coffee pods and bath robes, to marshmallows for s'mores. We were able to continue traditions - low country boil, corn hole, Rook tournaments, stories around the campfire, and the young ones thoroughly enjoyed the Navitat Zip Lines and tubing on the river. The property itself is amazingly restored with beautiful surprises around every corner. We especially enjoyed the many porches for coffee, conversation, and quiet relaxation. The bedrooms are huge and comfortable. We utilized both houses but gathered at the "big house" for group meals and evening entertainment. As great as the properties are , the genuine southern hospitality of the owners was unsurpassed in our experience. They were there early to greet our oldest son who came in on a red eye flight from Spokane,WA. They allowed him early access so that he could sleep before we arrived. They also accommodated a delayed departure. It is obvious that the happiness of their guests brings them joy! Timing was such that our group received a private tour of their new addition, a magnificent tree house on the hillside above the Carolina Jewel. Michael and Eva partnered with the "Treehouse Guys" to build this masterpiece, and the craftsmanship and creativity on display is truly amazing. Please check it out if you have a smaller group staying there. It would be a once in a lifetime opportunity. In closing, we thank you, Eva and Michael, for your hospitality and for the love and care you have given this beautiful piece of historical property. We certainly hope to enjoy it again. Warm regards!!! The Combs Family Reviewer location Prospect, KY Date of arrival June 22, 2017

Romantic Escape

Date of Stay:

My husband and I booked the Treehouse for our "babymoon," a vacation we took during my pregnancy before chaos of having a little one puts travel plans on hold. It was the perfect place to escape from work, life and everyday stresses. We gazed at the stars at night from the giant deck, and slept better than we had in weeks in the dark, quiet, serene environment. There's nothing like hanging out in the trees for the weekend! The treehouse truly has all the comforts-- from the mattress and pillows to the cozy living area and fully functional kitchen. The owners did not miss a detail! You could spend hours just admiring the woodwork inside. The photos are beautiful, but this is a must-see in person! Absolutely stunning.
