RIPA ALTO is a nice basement apartment near Ridgecrest, the Baptist campground and conference center. It was spacious and well furnished in most respects. There were a couple of negatives: we had some problems with TV reception, which I attributed to internet (the projection TV would frequently lose signal) and the refrigerator was a small hotel size with no freezer (i.e. no ice). The photo is of the upstairs patio, not the guest area. Positives: sleep number bed, high quality towels, nice pots and pans, and a Keurig coffeemaker
We thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay here to rest and celebrate an anniversary. Loved being able to get to many places nearby for sightseeing - Asheville, the Blue Ridge Parkway, etc. Everything was spotless and comfortable. Liked the deep soaker bathtub. Our hosts were thoughtful and considerate.
