About Frank Dixon
After retiring from a 33 year career in sales management/ marketing, we visited our oldest daughter Etta and fell in love with Asheville. We moved to the Asheville Area in 2002 and lived in the house that became our first rental, “Our House.” (We built a cabin on the property and moved into it). Soon to follow, came our youngest daughter, Farris, and her now husband Danny. In 2009 their daughter Alyssa arrived and in 2015 Haley was born, making this a true family business.
Frank Dixon purchased this House in 2011
Why Frank Dixon chose Fairview
We fell in love with Asheville and all it has to offer. We then decided to share the beauty of the Asheville Area and the hospitality of the Smokey Mountains with others. “Our House” and “My Roundette” were on the property when we originally bought it. Both have since been remodeled. We then purchased additional land and built “My Place,” “The Huntley,” and “The Garden Cabin.” “Log Gap” and “Prayer Ridge” were both bought at separate, more remote locations. Both were extensively remodeled.
What makes this House unique
The benefit of staying at “The Cove at Fairview” is the unique experience. Each home offers you a different experience in small ways – outdoor fireplaces, swinging beds, and a fifty mile view are just a few. Also, enjoy waterfalls, Koi Ponds, a Lotus Pond, horses, chickens (enjoy fresh eggs), donkeys, goats, native plants, & flower gardens. By staying here, you are nestled into all of the beautiful natural settings in this peaceful cove. While being very private and close to nature, you are still afforded all of the conveniences of technology and are located near all this area has to offer. Truly a place to come and renew yourself. Kick back, relax, and have a true retreat or a wonderful place to land after an exhausting day of fun (downtown is only 15 minutes away).
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Great house. Plenty of room.
We spent 5 nights at the cabin. It was a great experience overall.
Fun Family Get Away
Beautiful home tucked in gorgeous, peaceful surroundings. Close enough to all the area sites, but quiet enough to think you are a million miles away. Pool table, hot tub and the swinging beds on the huge screened in porch were huge hits with the adult kids!! Would love to return!! Frank is an amazing host--prompt response to all questions, schedule a private horseback trail ride for us (FABULOUS), fresh eggs and hot bread cooking upon our arrival. What a treat from the booking process thru check-out!
Exactly what we need
The pictures didn’t quite do the place justice. It was slightly nicer than we expected. It was a pleasant surprise
Enjoyed our stay at the Huntley. With the exception of “could have been cleaner” the property fit our needs.
Mountain retreat close to Asheville
Perfect for our annual multi generational girls gathering! Frank was such a lovely host, including a tour of the house, recommendations on what to do, and bearer of flashlights and lanterns when the power went out due to a big storm. And I’ve never slept as well as on that sleeping porch....even during the storm!! Thank you Frank for such a wonderful and memorable visit. Highly recommended.
Beautiful getaway conveniently located
Our family had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed staying at The Huntley. Frank was a gracious host, meeting us when we arrived to show us around the property and offering us fresh eggs from his farm nearby and bread. He also gave us a lot of great recommendations for places to eat and visit. The house included all the amenities you could possibly ask for -- pool table, hot tub, board games/playing cards, places to relax and enjoy each other's company. The best features, according to our kids, were the swinging beds and feeding the animals at the farm. We would definitely stay at The Huntley again.
