About Diane

Glen attended UNC-W in Wilmington and grew up in Greensboro. We met each other in New Orleans where Glen worked in the oil exploration business. We love everything about Asheville and all of the beautiful nature surrounding this wonderful area.

Fresh air, wonderful people, great weather and seasons to be enjoyed and cherished. Great restaurants, cafes and spas await us each visit. Our plan is to live in Asheville and own several cottages each furnished for our wonderful guests.

Diane purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Diane chose Asheville

Cottage was a Parade of Homes WINNER and the property is SO convenient to all the fun activities around and in Asheville!

What makes this cottage unique

Close to Everything Good to do in Asheville. Very private and very secure, plus easy parking & walk to front door.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home. It is beautiful! This was our 22nd wedding anniversary and we love Asheville! We had a great time at the Biltmore and we all hope to come back again. The beds were so comfy and the decor so pretty. Thank you!

This lovely cottage was close to everything on our bucket list. Safe neighborhood and comfy accommodations. The owners were a joy to work with. Why would anyone want to stay in a. Stuffy hotel?

A memorable first visit to Asheville!!!

  • 5 of 5

Cozy, Charming, Clean, Comfortable, Convenient, and Chic are some of the best adjectives I can think of to describe this wonderful home away from home! So happy we found this place because it was so close to all the sights we wanted to visit during our stay. This shabby chic beautiful two-story home with 3 baths was truly lovely to come home to everyday after a tiring day of sightseeing. We had a terrific time on our first visit to Asheville and know it won't be our last. Thanks, Diane, for making our stay a memorable one!

Best Rental Ever!

This wonderful house exceeded our expectations. We had our annual girls trip here and had a great time. The owners were incredibly helpful and prompt with any questions we had. All was super clean, adorably decorated, and the location was perfect for everything we wanted to do.

Asheville Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Throughly enjoyed our first trip to Asheville NC. The house is terrific. Clean, tidy, simple and tastefully decorated. Bed was very comfortable. Very quiet area. Just a short drive into downtown.

We loved all the craft beers and the food downtown was amazing. Never had a bad meal! We enjoyed a trip to Biltmore and kayaked on the French Broad.

Highly recommend this wonderful home.
