Planning a vacation or business trip to Asheville, NC?  Welcome to the Penley Produce family of vacation rental homes. It's a weird name, but the core of our properties are based around GrandLloyd & Grannie Laura's family farm affectionately called Penley Produce.  All our homes have the same great hosptality, quality, service, and competitive pricing!!!

We currently have seven (7) VRBO/AirBnB homes in Candler, NC just outside of Asheville.  Welcome to Western North Carolina.  #AltitudeAffectsAttitude

Tony McLean Brown and Michael Patton

We can house a wedding party or family reunion from 1 to 55 people in our collection of VRBO homes that are in very close proximity to each other (think ... just down the road!) Heck, three house are within a 9 iron shot of each other (see photo above) sharing the same 10 acres of green pasture. Three more homes are on Sand Hill Rd/Asbury and the Cabin that are within a 10-15 minutes drive of the old farm place at the corner of Monte Vista and Liberty.  All homes are a short drive into West Asheville, Downtown, Biltmore House, Breweries, Golf, Hiking, and the AVL Airport.

Close Enough, Yet Not Too Close

If you have a big group, you want folks to be able to get together BUT still  be able to get away from the crowd. Who wants to be right next to the inlaws, creepy uncles, or crying babies? If you are with bunch of college friends, who wants to be right next to the loud mouth?  Or just a bunch of couples/lovers who like traveling together but want to maintain social distance!  We have several options to suit your unique travel requirements.

When you come to Asheville, your group is gonna want to be near the downtown and West AVL activites, yet far enough away to have privacy and the beautiful mountains. Close enough, yet not too close.
