Minutes from downtown, Biltmore Estate, Biltmore Village and The Blue Ridge Parkway, this home is in the heart of one of Asheville's most distinguished and peaceful neighborhoods, Kenilworth, on a large lot across from a park. The front yard is fenced, and the back deck gives a private spot for relaxing in our mountain weather. 3 bedrooms: master bedroom upstairs features a queen memory foam mattress, and the 2nd bedroom has 2 singles. More private downstairs room has double size futon and is perfect office. Living room, fireplace, and dining area make this perfect for a weekend retreat or a months-long stay.
The kitchen is fully outfitted, has a water filter in the fridge and fresh herbs are growing in the gardens and on the deck for your use. The 2nd bedroom can be switched to a queen with advance booking & request. We love Asheville and moved here after staying in a short-term rental that made us feel so at home, and we want to provide the same for our visitors. We live in town and are available by phone or visit, if you need.
Check in is via the Kevo keyless entry system for self check in. Access to large neighborhood park designed for kids, great for toddlers up to teenagers.
Kenilworth was developed in the late 1800s into the 1900s by the Chiles family, whose mansion sits across the park from our house. A historic neighborhood, it is perfect for long strolls and features many award-winning gardens managed by diligent owners.
Getting around: Uber or rental car is recommended.
Other things to note: Stairs to the 3rd bedroom and laundry. You might see a bear in the neighborhood if you're lucky! You'll definitely see wild turkeys roaming or roosting in the back of the property. Our neighborhood requires dogs to be leashed when walked, as many folks walk their pups daily. Our 30 day minimum policy is based on Asheville law, but we welcome longer stays and understand if you don't plan to be on vacation for a month!
