About Dana and Michele

We - Michele & Dana - currently live in Woodfin/Asheville, NC. We have lived, separately and together, in places like San Francisco, Philadelphia, Amherst, MA and Johnson City, TN.

We moved back to Woodfin in November 2016 and fell in love with Western NC's mountains and wildlife right along with Asheville's downtown area.

Michele is a life coach and former DJ and videographer. Dana is a UX Designer and occasional web & graphic designer. We met in 2009 and were married in 2015 on Halloween at Michele's family home in NC.

We're not usually big on lists, but together we agree that 5 things we can't live without are good friends, great conversations, music (we like almost every genre!), laughter and family (bio and chosen).

Dana and Michele purchased this house in 2017

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

Super cute, clean and comfortable! Perfect fit for us. Our fur bay loved the fenced in yard. My husband and I enjoyed sitting on the deck and seeing the stars.

Great price, super clean, and very dog friendly!

  • 5 of 5

I'm going to start off with the only negative I could find with the location--and it's that some of the houses in the area were questionable looking. HOWEVER, we stayed two nights and had absolutely no issues. Upon arrival we were left a personal note from Dana and Michele, a wonderful touch! They had even hung up a Happy Birthday banner for my fiancee's birthday. There were treats for our dogs, a dog bed (we didn't use it as we brought our own), and dog bowls. The backyard was spacious and my dogs loved checking it out. A fair warning, the neighbors have chickens and the fence is only about 4 feet in places so if you have jumpers, be careful. The inside of the house was spotless and the bed was super comfy. There was even a lint roller left out for us (much needed when you vacation with your fur babies!). I also enjoyed the what looked to be handmade soap that was provided. The whole house was light filled and airy. We didn't cook much but we did have everything we needed in the kitchen. Downtown Asheville was only about a 10 minute/$10 Lyft drive away. Overall this was a great place to stay and a great price, especially to be so dog friendly.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the BEST time at this little cottage! Everything was so clean and well-maintained. It was SUPER dog-friendly; dog treats, paw wipes, poop bags and a HUGE fenced in backyard. Our pups had equally as good of a time as we did. There are all the kitchen necessities you need and more; we enjoyed cooking at the house one night and relaxing. We will definitely return and recommend this cozy cottage to all of our friends! Thanks, Dana and Michelle!
