Steve and Donna Frellick started Yonder in 2008 with a single property and a simple vision; fill a missing niche market for luxury vacation rentals, and do it better than anyone else.
As a master craftsman, timber frame, homebuilder, Steve had been providing dream homes and custom tailored residences for over 18 years, specializing in creating a better customer experience. Providing a unique and customized vacation experience for others was a natural transition. Donna is a registered nurse in the neonatal ICU at Mission Hospital and brings the same uncompromising standards and care to Yonder.
Steve & Donna discovered Asheville in 1995, and almost 20 years later revel in calling Asheville their home. They live here in Asheville with their 3 children, the youngest being a true “native son”. They have built a number of the vacation properties featured in the Yonder portfolio, and care deeply about the experience each and every one of their guests takes home, as precious memories to be cherished for years. Being from close-knit families with true friends and traveling together for years on family vacations, the importance of a memorable experience for all rings true and crystal clear.
Asheville and the Blue Ridge Mountains have always been a tourist destination, and have an abundance of rental “cabins”, in quaint, remote mountain settings; but no one had focused on either the downtown market, or larger, luxury homes. These 2 specific areas are their specialty.
In 7+ years Yonder has grown to be the leader in luxury mountain rentals, and has carefully & meticulously enhanced their portfolio to over 30 luxury properties & growing. The goal is not to be the biggest; the goal is simply to provide the best in destination homes, and to be the best in delivering a memorable vacation experience.
Yonder creates a vacation experience, rather than just a “destination”, and that demands the highest levels of customer experience & guest services. The Yonder commitment is to make every stay special. This starts and ends with true customer service.
All of the Yonder homes are spectacular in their own right, and then additionally have been professionally decorated & outfitted to create unique & exceptional spaces.
The Yonder team consists of Steve, Donna, 6 other family members, and “adopted” members to the Yonder family. The entire team is focused on providing every guest with the ultimate vacation experience, and delivers that at every step & interaction. Come and let Yonder create your lasting memories.
