About Linda Curtis

We've been married 3 years and have 6 children and 7 grandchildren between us. I was born in Brooklyn, NY and Mike was born in Florida and somehow we met in the middle. We've both lived in this area for 30 years. I like to hike, cycle, cook, read, write and since I've met Mike, you can add bowling to the top of the list. Mike is an excellent bowler and also likes to cycle with me in Pisgah Forest. We enjoy spending time with our family and love watching movies and playing card games together. I manage a large dental practice and Mike has recently retired. We are enjoying our joint vacation rental venture and have met so many wonderful people since we started.

Why Linda Curtis chose Mills River

Mike bought this home about 18 years ago because he loved the beauty and serenity of the Mills River area. I had lived in Hendersonville, but sold my home when we married because I like the more laid back, less crowded, friendlier atmosphere here, as well as the convenient location.

What makes this apartment unique

Guests will love the cozy, yet modern atmosphere in the apartment. You will have a private entrance with ample parking and a small outside space to enjoy. The apartment is stocked with anything you will need to make your time here comfortable and enjoyable. There are special treats and goodies throughout the apartment. We are dedicated to making your stay an experience that surprises and delights you. In addition, you will find you are close to everything with easy access to I-26.

Amazing Every Time

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd time booking at Creature Comforts and has been an amazing experience each time. Linda is a wonderful hostess and provides so many essentials that you normally would not find at most VRBO's. Creature Comforts is extremely clean and comfortable, has a full kitchen, and very conveniently located to all of the Asheville attractions and outdoor activities. We would highly recommend staying here on your next trip to Asheville!

This was one of the best places we have stayed! The apartment was perfect for a weekend getaway.

  • 5 of 5

No detail was left unattended. the kitchen was specially set up for our anniversary with a sweet card and a balloon. (And the cookies were amazing). I felt so comfortable and at home during our stay. We will most definitely be coming back soon for another visit.

The home is very warm and welcoming. The owners have done a great job decorating it.

  • 5 of 5

Linda and Mike go above and beyond what all the other VRBO owners have done for me in the past. I always try to book a home vs a hotel room. Linda and Mike are super to work with. They are very gracious and wonderful. I'll book with them again.

Perfect get-away

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I had a wonderful stay at Creature Comforts!The place was clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated. Linda certainly pays attention to details. There were breakfast/drink/snack items, delicious homemade chocolate chip cookies, and extra toiletries for our use. The location is perfect.....close to town, but far enough away for privacy. We can't wait to stay again!

Loved this cute house!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was amazing! The place is super cozy and on a great piece of property. It's attached to a house but we didn't hear anyone else all weekend. And Linda thought of everything from toothbrushes, breakfast, Tupperware and she left us home baked cookies! Her house is about 30 minutes outside of Asheville and it's a really easy drive. I'd definitely stay here again and recommend this place to everyone!
