About the property

Come stay with us at the Bamboo Bungalow in West Asheville where the artistic heart and soul resides. Our home has three bedrooms, each decorated in a unique cottage-style with a large balcony overlooking a serene bamboo grove. Enjoy the newly furnished modern kitchen and cozy living room. It doesn’t get much better than this, come join us at the Bamboo Bungalow!

Layout: There are three steps up to the front porch, but the living space is all contained on one level. The cottage has three bedrooms, two queen beds, two twin beds and a full bathroom with a custom-tiled walk in shower. We have arranged an open living/dining area with wifi and a Smart TV. The owner of the house lives downstairs with a roommate. The two levels are totally separated and there is no need to share a common area. Kitchen: There is a stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, coffee pot, blender, toaster and a full set of dishes and cooking utensils. The kitchen is equipped for cooking if desired. However, just in case you choose to enjoy Asheville's wonderful restaurants - there is a notebook full of delicious choices! Porch: You’ll find a back porch where you can relax and enjoy the serenity of the bamboo grove and French Broad River.

Guest access: The entire main level is for your enjoyment!

Guest interaction: Our interaction with you as our guests is partially up to you! Our standard procedure is to greet you upon arrival (if possible), give you the key and a brief tour of the house and amenities offered. We will always available via text/phone call for Asheville advice!

Neighborhood overview: Joyner Avenue is a quiet street that runs parallel to the French Broad River and is only one street away. It is being revitalized, reflecting the growth of this vibrant community. Just below us is the Smoky Mountain Adventure Center with its climbing wall and bar. At the end of our street you’ll find the eclectic coffee house and cafe, Edna’s at the River, featuring local beverages, baked items and great food. If you want to relax during your stay in Asheville, this is the neighborhood for you!

Getting around: Best modes of transportation in Asheville are definitely Uber and Lyft.

Other things to note: We are situated on a quiet street a five-minute walk to Carrier Park with access to the entire RiverLink park system along the French Broad River. Rent a bike and travel along the river or visit the funky River Arts District on the other side of the bridge. Rent an inner tube and enjoy a peaceful float down the river with Zen Tubing or get ambitious and try out a stand up paddle board (SUP). Visit the riverside breweries at the New Belgium, The Wedge, or farther downstream at the Bywater where you can pull in right off the river. The Biltmore Estate is just a short 3.1 miles away. Downtown Asheville is 3.0 miles away filled with street life and restaurants. We are a 10-minute drive to the Blue Ridge Parkway and access to the Appalachian Mountain trail system.

About Austin Lechner

Inquisitive traveler, entrepreneur and hospitality management extraordinaire with demonstrated history of cultural adaptability, lucrative innovation, and a keen perception of people.

I attribute both my personal and financial prosperity to the cultivation and practice of several routines that have led to a better understanding of self. Through daily meditation, sport, and loving relationships with both friends and mentors I live each day knowing I can learn and accomplish anything I desire. Therefore, it’s not a matter of selling my worth to the world because I know I can’t be stopped when I set my sights on a target.

Why Austin Lechner chose West Asheville

I knew that the River Arts District, which is less than two miles away from our home, would explode into the thriving hub of Asheville, NC that it is today!

What makes this bungalow unique

Our home is located one street away from the French Broad River, several different parks, hip vibes of West Asheville, and less than two miles from the River Arts District. The location could not be better for exploring Asheville, NC. The view from the back deck is also quite magical: a bamboo grove surrounds our backyard providing our guests with enchanting ambiance and privacy!

My girlfriends at I rented this house and loved it. Great decor, comfy mattresses, very clean! Only one suggestion for the owner, longer shower curtain in that beautiful bathroom. We had water on the floor and had to use our towels to control it... also hotter water. It was warm and good but slightly hotter would be great. We truly enjoyed our stay and will rent again when we come back to Asheville!

Wonderful stay at the Bamboo Bungalow!

  • 5 of 5

My sister, husband and I had a wonderful stay at the Bamboo Bungalow over Thanksgiving. The house was spotless, the location was perfect (quick drive to West Asheville) and check-in was super easy. The house is so cozy with a great little back porch area. We would love to stay here again!
