Why Matthew Clark chose Asheville

We purchased this property from our neighbors in 2000. The views were quite inspiring! We considered a long-term rental but then realized we needed to do a gut-renovation. We started in late 2005 and finished the renovation in 2007.We have been renting the Suite as a short-term vacation rental ever since. Our home is also on the property but you will never see us unless you want to. We are usually "around" should you need any assistance. Your complete privacy, however, is assured.

What makes this cottage unique

The Suite is very convenient to downtown Asheville and The Blue Ridge Parkway. And the view? Unbelievable!

Beautiful and peaceful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Visited for a weekend get away and this is exactly what we needed! It was private and the owner is wonderful to deal with! The cottage is minutes away from anything you want to do! We will definitely stay here when we come back.

A view from the top

  • 5 of 5

The suite is ideally situated with spectacular view of the mountain range and city. Conveniently located to the city and all the local attractions including the Biltmore complex, outlets, microbreweries, hiking venues, arboretum and botanical gardens. The suite is very well designed and extremely comfortable. Your hosts are willing to go out of there way to be helpful and at the same time are respectful of your privacy. They even provided eggs, muffins, a basket of fruit, coffee and orange juice milk and half and half on arrival to save you the hassle of having to stop on the way in. The suite has a wide selection of premium cable programming and high speed internet service. Extremely comfortable. Truly a five star property and rental experience.

Wonderfully Charming Mountain Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased to see the actual suite matched our expectations! Very cozy, charming and clean. The kitchen was fully stocked to include breakfast items -- very thoughtful! Bath towels and bedding were very soft. Overall wonderful stay! Thanks to Matt and Stephen for a lovely stay.

It's hard to add anything novel to the exemplary reviews on the page- but just wanted to add our "us too". We had a wonderful time staying at the Suite and couldn't have asked for anything more. We enjoyed the breakfast staples stocked by the host in the mornings and split our time between downtown and hiking/driving the parkway. We were easily able to do both and go back and forth multiple times per day with this prime location. I'm not sure we will ever be able to stay anywhere else when we travel to Western NC.

Scenic - Comfy Cozy Getaway

  • 5 of 5

From the scenic drive up the mountain, to the stone walked gardens leading to a spectacular view from under a beautifully planned Garden Arbor with two fluffy, comfy chairs to rest, relax and unwind.

Stepping into the Craftsman style Cottage was like opening a gift. You keep looking around at the style and architecture of this sweet space and fall in love.

Cozy and sweet. From the soft leather couch and reading chair to the comfortable soft queen sized bed. Sweet touches like lemon verbena soap and breakfast goodies in the fridge.

We loved our stay. Don’t pass this one up!
