                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About the owner: As a prior owner of Acorn Cottage Bed & Breakfast in Asheville, NC, for 12 years, you can rest assured your vacation experience will be superb. I am currently Executive Director of Tourism and have had a diverse background as a Department Store Buyer , non-profit museum directer and as restaurant manager.

                  Why the Owner Chose Asheville:
                  My favorite place is Asheville where I owned Acorn Cottage B&B. I fell in love with the cozy, unique property that has the best of both worlds: the quiet peacful atmosphere of the mountains, but convenient to town. It's absolutely amazing how close the house is to everything there is to do in the area, but how quiet it is! You actually feel as if you are miles from town - but you aren't!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
                  I love sitting on the porch listing to the tree frogs and crickets at night. During the winter I enjoy curling up in the recliner chair in front of the fire with a good book and glass of wine. For a marvelous mountain view, a short walk up Breckinridge Pkwy near the house reveals the magic of the area. I love the diversity of cuisine in the Asheville & Weaverville area less than a 10 minute drive from the house.
