Asheville cottage description

Whether you are planning a vacation to our beautiful town, or traveling for business, The Cottage on Parkway Loop offers you a comfortably elegant alternative to sterile hotel rooms.

At 600 sq ft the recently renovated Cottage has a lot to offer for its diminutive size. Downstairs are the living room, kitchen, and dining areas. A full bath with claw-foot tub and laundry adjoins the living room. Upstairs is the master bedroom with king- sized bed and half bath. This light filled room is tucked into a dormer with large windows looking out into a canopy of trees. A small nook entices you to stay and read a while.

The fully equipped custom kitchen has a dishwasher, stove, microwave, and refrigerator. Other amenities include: cable tv, roku, dvd player, high speed and wireless internet connections, washer/dryer and air-conditioning.

The cottage on parkway loop is located in a quiet residential neighborhood just one mile from the blue ridge parkway and ten minutes from downtown asheville. This convient location with easy access to interstates 40 and 240 gives you access to all the delights of downtown, while being close to many of the outdoor attractions that make WNC such a wonderful place to be.

One mile away, the Blue Ridge Parkway is your avenue to spectaular views, cascading waterfalls, and revitalizing hikes. The cottage is only 12 miles to the extensive mountain bike trails at Bent Creek, and 20 miles from Chimney Rock and Lake lure. The legendary Biltmore House is just minutes away on Interstate 40.

Come and let the cottage be your departure point for the many and varied adventures that await you in our beautiful mountains.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: Tim grew up in the area, and Muffi has lived here for over 30 years. We both went to Warren Wilson College in Swannanoa, and love the outdoors and all that this area has to offer. We have 1 son (16) who goes to a highschool just 2 mi. away from Parkway Loop.

                  Why the Owner Chose Asheville:
                  This building was originally constructed as a wood-working shop, and when introduced to us, we fell in love with it and the location, and immediately saw the potential for a wonderful living space. We're both builders, so we took on the renovation ourselves, and added a bathroom addition, porch, and upstairs bedroom with a dormer and half-bath. We built custom kitchen cabinets, and had a great time furnishing, and creating a cozy living space.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  We love the tall windows, light space, and wonderful 'small home' feel of this place. It's in a quiet wooded neighborhood, extremely convenient to Asheville and it's amenities, and just minutes from the Parkway and surrounding area attractions.
