Asheville, North Carolina


Fully fenced yard in NW Asheville with beautiful forested views! The lawn is sloped with short grass. Cattle fence has mesh wire all the way around. There are very small gaps at the gates (pictured) but my 25lb dog cannot fit through them. Please use only the side of the yard at the front of the house (to your left from the driveway). It is fenced separately from the back yard. There is a spigot for water and trash can in the driveway for your use! Please note that several neighbors have dogs so it is likely you’ll see them out or hear barking (in case your dogs are sensitive to distraction). Also one side of my fence abuts a neighbor’s adjacent yard, and they occasionally let their dogs out into the yard on their side of the fence for a bathroom break. The dogs cannot get through the fence but may come up to it and bark. The neighbors usually call them inside quickly, however there have been rare instances (usually on weekends) where the dogs are left out barking on their deck (away from the fence) for longer periods of time.

    Nice quiet spot . Our pup had a good time.

    My dogs love this SniffSpot!

    I've used multiple sniff spots for my two dogs and this one is still the favorite! Large enough space for my tiny dog to explore while also being able to keep an eye on her. The fence is secure, so it's nice not having to worry about her being able to get out. Part of the yard is shaded, and it's a quiet and peaceful area. We'll be back again.

    The dogs had a blast! This was their first Sniff Spot experience and it was a great one. We'll visit this spot again.

    Dilly and I enjoyed this Spot yesterday afternoon. Everything was exactly as stated. The neighbor dogs didn’t bother Dilly at all, but I can see where some might be afraid. Rest assured, if there were any gaps in the fence, my little escape artist souls have found it. Thanks for sharing this nice shady yard!

    This park gets a 5 star rating for safety, cleanliness and great terrain to exercise your dog. I felt secure with the excellent fencing; knowing my dog was safe and could not get out! Just returned home and my pup is sleeping extra early and content after a much needed frolic. Will return often!

    This is a wonderful spot! The description was very accurate and thorough. The space was clean and very secure. Our two very large pups had a great time exploring and running. We did hear some other dogs (as mentioned in the description) but they were far away and didn’t even bother our one dog who is very protective and reactive in the least bit. In fact, I would say this spot has the perfect amount of some distant activity that actually makes the spot more interesting for the dogs. We highly recommend this spot- one of the best we have visited!

  • Marjorie R., May 31, 2023

    Just as described. Clean, quiet and room for a good run. There were other dogs barking occasionally but nothing in the least bothersome-in fact the neighbor directly across the street actually brought his dog inside his house while we were there. I drove 20 minutes to get there and will go back. Very restful and really appreciate the fact that no pesticides are used- a must for us so the pups do not walk in and then lick, the poison. Thank you!

  • Joran O., May 29, 2023

    Thank you so much. Our dog had the best time. Plenty of room to run. The fence is great. He’s home now and can hardly keep his eyes open. So much running. We’ll definitely be back!

    I brought my dog here this morning and he absolutely loved it. My dog is a Great Pyrenees and Alaskan malamute mix and it was the perfect spot for him to get some energy out as it was a lot of space. It was also pretty quiet this morning in regards to the neighbors dogs. Clean space too. I will be returning .
