NOTE: VRBO has changed the layout for rates making it difficult to determine monthly rate discounts...Please click "see more" and scroll to bottom of this description for additional rate info.

Private main floor unit of this charming dutch colonial duplex, which sits on a quiet raised lot in an historic neighborhood between downtown Asheville and Grove Park Inn. This home is just under a mile from downtown.

This is a great location for enjoying all that Asheville offers and having a chance to live like a local! The neighborhood is from the 1920's era - close in yet tucked away so it's quiet and away from traffic. You can walk downtown through easy neighborhood streets or get an Uber ride for around $5-7. There are also several wonderful restaurants right here in the neighborhood and easily a full selection of grocery stores ("Greenlife"/Whole Foods, Trader'Joe's and Harris Teeter about .7m away). Asheville YOGA Center is 4 blocks (.7m) away so it's a great place to stay for their retreats!

This home has just been updated and renovated to restore it to its 1920s charm while also providing modern conveniences. You will have over 1100 sq feet of private space including large living room, spacious kitchen with table for dining, 2 bedrooms each with Queen bed, and a fully renovated bathroom. The home is hardwood floors except for bath, which is new ceramic tile.

Although you will likely be drawn to do the many fun things that Asheville offers, unwinding at the end of the day will be wonderful on the large sectional sofa, enjoying the 40" HDTV - with premium cable as well as Amazon Firestick to enjoy movies through amazon, netflix, etc. One bedroom also has 28" roku tv (set up for streaming).

For relaxing outside there is a front garden area with mature landscaping to surround you and lawn chairs for your enjoyment. You'll have a covered parking spot in the garage behind (it can actually fit 2 cars parked one behind other, depending on size of vehicles). There is also plenty of on street parking so no worries about that as compared to some streets in the area.

Walk up to Grove Park Inn for dining, coffee, drinks and enjoy the stunning views....Easily stroll to Charlotte Street for dining. It's a great neighborhood tucked away but still close to loads of things to do.

NOTE: At this time, this listing is a MONTHLY (minimum 30 day rental) while we compete things for our homestay approval. However, I have listed nightly rates (with 4-7 night minimum) because I am willing to book only those nights in any given month - effectively one booking per a 30 night span, to stay within city's guidelines. I can do this since I frequently use this space myself when not rented. So check with me about any potential dates - some dates blocked on the calendar may be for myself or family/friends, so there may be some flexibility. YOU MAY WANT TO CONSIDER a monthly rental even if you are not going to be in town the full month - compared to hotel rates (especially to 2 hotel rooms), it may still be cheaper!

My standard rate:

$2,900/month....or $200.00/night ($220 weekend nights)...or 7 nights $1,350

(I am limited to 1 rental/mo)


April thru June

$2,000.00/month avg...or $175.00/night ($185 Th, $200 weekend) or 7 nights $1,107

(I am limited to 1 rental per month)

This is a somewhat new listing for this property, but I have another vrbo listing as well with many great reviews: VRBO # 723258. I try to make things comfortable for guests.

About Sherri

I am an Asheville native and have renovated and restored property in North Asheville for about 25 years. Most of my property is traditional long term rental apartments, but I recently purchased this property along with my young son primarily as his investment. He lives in part of the dwelling and I help manage part as a vacation rental (See my other VRBO #723258 to read some of my reviews).

Sherri purchased this Apartment in 2016

Why Sherri chose Murdock - Linden

I have lived in the general neighborhood for many years. I sold my home on Edwin Place a couple of years ago because it was just too big after my sons were grown and gone, and I am only in Asheville part of the time right now. This place allows me to still be in this wonderful area of town, just in a smaller space. It also allows my son to have home ownership in a portion of the dwelling and remain in this neighborhood.

                                                Caitlin M.

                                                My husband and I spent 5 days in October in this comfortable, convenient condo with our dog. The condo had all the amenities we needed and the location was great, close to restaurants and downtown. We loved walking our dog around the neighborhood, where many houses were decorated for Halloween and the neighbors were friendly. It was much more relaxing for us in a residential neighborhood instead of a business district. We recommend this condo!

                                                relaxing community location just outside the city

                                                We were lucky to be able to stay here with our family and small dog during an emergency. The location is a little outside the city but only about a 5 minute drive. There are nice local restaurants to walk to and the owner is very quick to answer text/emails and was incredibly nice and helpful.

                                                Comfy home away from home!

                                                Aimée B.

                                                This apartment is situated in a nice and quiet neighborhood. The amentities available were all one could need in a home away from home. The beds were comfortable with nice linens. We really enjoyed our stay!

                                                Beautiful decor, quality updates, and everything we needed to feel at home.

                                                Addie R.

                                                This apartment - in an older home and quiet neighborhood - has been beautifully updated with designer details. The beds, towels and linens were wonderful, and the kitchen had all we needed. Beautiful wood floors, clean spacious bathroom with tile floor, and a super comfy couch. Great WiFi and TV. It was minutes to downtown and markets.

                                                Look forward to staying again!

                                                (P.S. We discovered Del Vecchio's Italian restaurant a few blocks away - amazing food, design and neighborhood prices. Open late!)

                                                I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay and it would be a pleasure to have you visit again. I have not tried Del Vecchio's yet but it's good to know there's another great place so close!
