Asheville cottage description

CAN YOU SAY…LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!

Need a Place at the Last Minute! Call…Don’t e-mail!

If you are looking for a conveniently located property in the Asheville area my home is it. Look no further! It’s just 3 minutes away from The Biltmore Estate and Biltmore Village and about 5 minutes from downtown Asheville.

The home is ideal for 2 to 4 people. The 2 bedrooms are furnished with comfortable queen size beds. The kitchen and bathroom were completely remodeled and the kitchen is well-equipped for gourmet cooking if that is your pleasure.

There are mixes of old and new with several antique pieces scattered throughout the house. The home is very clean, cozy, charming, organized and comfortable. I want you to feel like it is your 'home away from home'. It is ideal for weekend or week long vacations, or temporary lodging while house hunting or job relocating.

                          Car: Recommended

                          My home is located less than 1 mile from the Biltmore Village and The Biltmore Estates and less than 3 miles from Downtown Asheville. It is on a very short (couple hundred yards) quiet dead end street in a small neighborhood with lots of trees and flowers. It's less than 10 minutes to the Blue Ridge Parkway (Named one of the top ten most beautiful scenic highways in the US) that takes you to Mount Mitchell, (highest point east of the Mississippi River) Linville Falls, Craggie Gardens, Mount Pisgah, Folk Art Center, NC Arboretum just to name a few. If you enjoy the outdoors, my home is conveniently located to countless outdoor activities from white water rafting, canoeing, hiking, mountain biking, climbing, horse back riding, to golfing and fishing just to name a few.

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2006

                          About the owner: I am Janis and for many years, prior to my husband’s passing, it was our goal to own and operate a guest cottage in beautiful Asheville, NC. I am fulfilling this dream as he would have wanted. My love of nature and the beauty to be found in Asheville is a constant source of discovery for me and as my eyes are opened to the beauty that surrounds the cottage, it excites me to be able to offer visitors first hand information on the endless sites in store for them. I am here to make your trip a memorable one and to offer everything I can to help you achieve that. “Your Complete Satisfaction is my #1 Goal!”

                          Why the Owner Chose Asheville:
                          I actually didn’t choose Asheville but rather married into it so to speak. My husband owned a home in Asheville and lived in it for a short time off and on. When we married we moved to Orlando, FL and the house remained unoccupied except for an occasional renter. In 2000 we decided to completely restore the home and after renting it for a few years we decided to sell our home in Orlando and relocate full time to the property in Asheville, a move we never regretted. As luck would have it the home next door to us was for sale and we viewed that as the perfect opportunity to be able to offer a very special “home away from home” for our guests. We bought it and completely refurbished it. Living next door affords me the ability to quickly and efficiently meet all the needs of my guests. My dream has come true so why not come to beautiful Asheville and let me help make your stay one that you will fondly remember.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          It's on a very short dead end street with very few neighbors so no busy road so it has the country feel but is within the city limits and close to everything. Biltmore Village, Estates, Downtown Asheville, Antiquing and other great shopping, Great Restaurants, About 6 minutes to the Blue Ridge Parkway and Mall just to name a few.
