Property description

Nestled in the heart of Asheville, one can walk to downtown. Close on street or off street (but the drive is steep) parking with private entrance A queen size lush bed to fall into after your soak. The cottage is 4 blocks to downtown Asheville with 3 restaurants along the way. nine mile is a Jamaican with the best jerk chicken and good vegetarian choices. Chiesa is an old converted church with good italian fare. Tod's tasties is sandwiches with on premise baked bread, and good soup. breakfast is easy there and everyone sits outside to eat and drink their coffee. just run up there, get your bagel and enjoy the breakfast back at the cottage. All 3 restaurants serve local brewskies, and use local produce. Riverside cemetery is a beautiful walk along tree lined Pearson Drive. Our famous local author Thomas Wolfe is remembered there along with several others. It in itself is a great place to enjoy a long leisurely walk. I often ride my bike in the huge cemetery, where I always enjoy a homemade picnic lunch. There is a peace about it. Also on the same street where the cottage is, is the Montford Park Players where you can enjoy outdoor Shakespearean theatre during the summer. Something only the locals know about.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: Hello. You will love Asheville. Bridgett came here on vacation 20 years ago and decided this is home base for the rest of her life. Bridgett worked at the main hospital in Asheville for 18 years before retiring to run her own coffeehouse where she roasted her own coffee. She sold the thriving coffeehouse, to do aromatherapy and ayurveda. The double decker bus that you see downtown was initiated by ex-husband and herself many years ago. They also owned the coffee kiosks in the hospital, so she knows coffee. Bridgett also used to own and run a b& b which was eventually sold. After selling the coffee house Bridgett decided to start renting the cottage again. The cottage offers a private japanese soaking tub. Bridgett has been a certified aromatherapist for over 15 years. Bridgett enjoys going local and is a great advocate for local talent, food and activity. Bridgett loves India is intrigued with the beautiful culture and people. She helps with humanitarian efforts with homeless women and children. When you come to Asheville, there is all kinds of things for you to do. Enjoy.

Why the Owner Chose Asheville:
When we came to Asheville on vacation 20 years ago, it was during those 2 weeks that we decided this is a great place to live. It has everything one can enjoy in a small city. It has a great symphony, opera, fine arts, theatre and then the other side--hiking, biking, kayaking, camping all rolled into one little area. It's fabulous. Not to mention the local cuisine and micro breweries. The local college has a great culinary program and that's why one sees so many great, culturally different fares in Asheville. They have great local grocers and sell locally farmed produce. There are several tailgate markets, coops, and organic walking markets. Everything right here in our little town. QUALITY OF LIFE IS GOOD HERE. P.S It was really the local beer that made me come. The cottage makes it easy.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
THE JAPANESE SOAK The Japanese tub is used primarily for relaxation and detox. One of the best ways to release toxins is through heat and your skin. Unlike other tubs, the Japanese soaking tubs will stay warm for much longer periods as the cedar is well insulated. The addition of salts and oils makes it more therapeutic. Rainfall shower with led lights can make your shower a unique relaxing
