Nestled in a quiet cul-de-sac, our west Asheville home is filled with natural light and a happy, welcoming vibe. Tasteful vibrant colors, natural woods and plants make this a warm and cozy mountain getaway or perfect home-base for your Asheville adventures. When your hosts aren't adventuring in the camper with their daughter, they will be staying on the property in the private downstairs unit with separate entrance. You can encounter them as much or as little as you'd prefer during your stay. The back yard is the only shared space on the property.

• Linens and towels

Take in the mountain views while enjoying your coffee or savor the crisp night air as you search for shooting stars from the back deck.
Great outdoor living spaces include a spacious fenced-in back yard for the kids to run free, featuring a built-in playground and a trampoline. There is a stone fire pit in the center of the yard for cozy mountain evenings of roasting marshmallows and good conversation. Feel free to pick from the apple and pear tree in the late summer and fall. The apples are great for baking apple pies!
Inside you'll find a fully stocked, spacious kitchen. The bright, cozy living area has a L-shaped couch, fast Wifi, 52" Smart LED TV, Nest Thermostat, Echo Dot(Alexa), Apple TV(with Netflix, Hulu & Amazon Prime), record player with a small selection of classic albums, DVD player, games and more. The stone fire place is a lovely added touch, but we are not allowing guest to have indoor fires at this time.
Traveling with young kids? We have one too! This means our house will offer plenty for your little ones to stay occupied. Game, blocks, play kitchen, dollhouse and more will be available for the kids. Upon request, we also have things like a Rock-N-Play, Pack-N-Play, high-chair, Bumbo, doorway jumper, bouncer, play mat, sound machine, play kitchen, etc. Just let us know what you need to be comfy here. We will do what we can!
The 3 bedrooms(King, Queen & Full) are all equipped with luggage racks, fresh linens, pillows, towels, rags, hangers, palm leaf ceiling fans and a few other unique added touches.
Our guests will have the entire upstairs of our home(including upper porches) to themselves, although we will be available by phone or in person as much as needed. The yard and playground is a common area with the owners, but we will rarely be seen here when we have guests. Parking for guests will be on the paved driveway. If we are around, we will use the grassy area to the side of the driveway and use our private entrance to the downstairs unit.
Interaction with guests
We may be staying in our downstairs unit during your stay, but when the weather is nice, we will likely be out enjoying nature and family time in our camper. Either way, we will be sure to be available by phone/text throughout your stay. If you need suggestions on places to go, we have the inside scoop on restaurants, breweries, cafes, music venues, unique gift shops, local art galleries, amazing hikes, river access, adventure tours, AVL event calendars & more. Just let us know what kind of experience you're looking for and we will happily point you in the right direction. We love hosting and helping our guests!
Other things to note
There will be a gray, independent kitty roaming the grounds. That's Otis. He has cat-door access to the downstairs, but no access to the upstairs unless you decide to let him in. :) Feel free if you think you'd like the extra company. He's pretty chill. We also now have 5 chickens in the back yard. They are well maintained, comfy in their coop and pretty quiet. The chickens are always in their coop unless we let them out for free range grazing.
