Property description

Welcome to Asheville's original self-accommodating rental cottage established in 2000.

Experience a classic, private, Arts & Crafts-style guesthouse in a beautiful Historic District close to the center of town. All linens and other amenities are provided so just bring your groceries- and your laptop for the free WI-FI.

Please note the cottage is located on the second floor. The ground floor is the property owner's (very quiet!) office space.

See our amenities list including all linens provided, HDCATV, fast WIFI and more.

We've enjoyed hosting guests from across the US and around the world including Canada, Ireland and England, Mexico and Argentina, Greece, The Phillippines and more. Many return for repeat visits and we make every effort to see that that happens!

We invite you to visit us in North Carolina's beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.

Location

Beaver Lake- our neighborhood favorite- is a five minute's drive and perfect for picnicing, fishing, and birding. Our walkable neighborhood parks feature creeks, terrific climbing and play equipment and lots of grassy expanses for the kids. Our cool, green botanical gardens are walking distance just below the UNC-Asheville campus. The neighborhood and downtown offer too many excellent restaurants, cafes, and markets to mention and are celebrated for their variety and quality. All of downtown is a WiFi hotspot so take along your computer for a cup of coffee. Asheville's new center-city park- Pack Square and Roger McGuire Green- is amazing and not to be missed. Movie theater is walkable featuring regular kid's films also.
