The Cozy Cottage on Church Street is an 'Architectural Jewel' nestled amongst the few historical homes that line this quiet boulevard. Situated in the heart of downtown Asheville, a mere 2 blocks from the very center of downtown, all the activities and excitement of downtown are only a short walk away.
This 100 year old historical cottage has been lovingly restored in 2005 and is equipped with all the amenities of modern living yet keeping the ambience of yesteryear. All new plumbing, electrical, HVAC, roofing - our cottage is in perfect shape. The heart of pine wooden floors, stair railings and pocket doors are original to the house and have been beautifully refinished. Whether you have a group of friends or just your family, this is the downtown home that offers everything you may need to build wonderful memories. If you prefer to eat in and relax in the warmth of the adjoining dining room, enjoy our fully functional kitchen. The living room offers a cozy environment for reading, movies, games or just visiting with your friends and family. The house has three TVs each with a DVD player and one with a VCR (we have Direct TV). We offer a rare bonus for downtown with plenty of paved parking for you & your entourage behind our home.
We are only a short 5 minute drive to the Biltmore Estate and many other highly sought after local attractions. The Biltmore Estate, built by George Vanderbilt, is the largest privately owned home in America. The Estate is world famous for replanting their splendid gardens each season. They own one of the most amazing private art collections in the world and their winery and culinary tantalizing restaurants are highly acclaimed. If visiting Asheville in December, a visit to the 'Christmas at Biltmore Estate' is a must to experience. The Grove Park Inn has an amazing 'One of a Kind Nationwide Gingerbread Exhibition & Competition', held every December and the Grove Park's enormous double stone fireplaces are to be enjoyed with a steaming cup of hot chocolate (I promise, it is an unforgettable experience!!). We have made both of these events our annual Christmas traditions since discovering Asheville in 2003. We are within walking distance to the newly redesigned Pack Square Plaza that enjoys outdoor concerts and festivals throughout the seasons. Downtown is full of wonderful diverse restaurants and coffee shops, unique boutique shopping, award winning art galleries, quaint grocery stores, museums, theaters, architecturally delightful buildings and historically significant monuments and landmarks. All of this and much more are just minutes from our lovely cottage enjoyed by foot.
Hiking, mountain biking, canoeing, rafting, winter skiing, snow boarding and motoring the Blue Ridge Parkway at any season is a delight. Explore and enjoy Asheville to fully experience why it is rated one of top tourist destinations. We look forward to seeing you soon.
