4 of us, 2 brothers and wives stayed in the second house-- we had the entire place, kitchen, 2 bedrooms, living, dining nook, bath all to ourselves. Great views. Beautiful porch. Dr Hopke is a marvelous hostess and fantastic cook. Animals are a +, climbing to the top of the hill gives a great workout and you are rewarded with a fantastic view. Peacocks and huge, friendly "puppies" all blend to make this a perfect get-a-way. Not far from Asheville. We stayed twice and will go back as often as we can.
