Beaver Lake- our neighborhood favorite- is a five minute's drive and perfect for picnicing, fishing, and birding. Our walkable neighborhood parks feature creeks, terrific climbing and play equipment and lots of grassy expanses for the kids. Our cool, green botanical gardens are walking distance just below the UNC-Asheville campus. The neighborhood and downtown offer too many excellent restaurants, cafes, and markets to mention and are celebrated for their variety and quality. All of downtown is a WiFi hotspot so take along your computer for a cup of coffee. Asheville's new center-city park- Pack Square and Roger McGuire Green- is amazing and not to be missed. Movie theater is walkable featuring regular kid's films also.
Year Purchased: 2000

Why the Owner Chose Norwood Park, Asheville, NC, USA:
We built the cottage on our residential property in 2000 for family, friends and rentals, inspired by spending an amazing week in a stone-and-thatch cottage in NW Ireland. Close to downtown! Just $7 Uber fare, and we are located one block from the ART stop (Asheville Rapid Transit busline)
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
See our Amenities section for details! Pet-Friendly (dogs only). A $75. fee (per pet) will be added to the quote you automatically received from VRBO, thanks.
