It's a great place for breakfast before a hike or shopping excursion, and it's the perfect spot for a drink in the afternoon before heading out to dinner at a nearby restaurant, to a concert or the theatre.

A private washer/dryer and iron in the apartment make laundry convenient for those planning longer visits. You'll also appreciate the central AC/Heat, ceramic tile floors, ceiling fans, Wifi (please note that our DSL service -- although the fastest available -- accommodates only limited UP-load speed), and 2 flatscreen satellite TVs offering all major pay/premium stations.

About Tim

Jeff is an elementary school teacher and Tim is a professional musician and small business owner. We've been happy together for 15 and enjoy hiking, theatre, travel, food, and spending time with friends and family.

Tim purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Tim chose Smoky Mountains

We have always loved the Asheville area because of its natural beauty, its emphasis on the arts, and its concern with the environment. We were fortunate enough to make a permanent move to the area in 2005. We love our home and its location here, and we are happy to be able to share a part of it with those who are looking to enjoy a vacation in the Asheville area.

What makes this apartment unique

The best part of our property is the combination of privacy and an 'away from it all' feeling in a beautiful mountain setting while at the same time having access to all the conveniences we need within a 5-10 minute drive.

Wonderful Weekend in Asheville!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in Asheville...we only wish it could have been longer! The city is much to see and do and the atmosphere is so upbeat! We saw friendly faces everywhere we went. The Trolley Tour was a perfect way to discover the town and who doesn't wouldn't love a visit to's on so many people's "bucket list."

The apartment was perfect for us. It worked out great since we knew we'd just be staying in the few evenings we were in town (darn Buddy the constant travel companion!) and your place was so much more comfortable than booking a hotel room. We had all the comforts of home (thanks for the treats & wine but I brought along plenty PLUS paper products!!) and felt so cozy. The bed was very comfortable...we loved the pillows! We even took a picture of the tag in hopes the brand was listed! All the extra touches you gave the apartment (which was so nicely decorated!!) were so thoughtful and kind....we really appreciated everything you did to make it such a great getaway spot! And once we discovered Hendersonville Road and all the restaurants/ etc. there...we didn't feel as remote as we did when we first arrived. The apartment really is close to so much and you just wouldn't realize that at first.

I'll definitely hope on VRBO to offer a glowing review...we are still on catch up mode having to go back to work today...but I wanted to write first chance I got to let you know how much we enjoyed staying in the apartment.....we miss it already!!

Great Asheville stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow . . .Where do I start? Probably the best deal for your money in the Asheville area. The location is great, its 10-15 minutes from everything we wanted to see in Asheville. Biltmore, Blue Ridge Parkway, downtown Asheville, great dinning . .all 15 minutes or less. We drove the less than 30 minutes to do a short hike at Craggy Gardens, then discovered Mount Mitchell was only another 15 minutes past that. So we ended up doing 2 relatively short but beautiful hikes in half a day! The apartment is great . . . SUPER clean and the perfect size for 2 people. I never thought I would say a place is TOO quiet, but the 1st night we actually had trouble sleeping because the silence was unsettling, but we fixed that by turning on a ceiling fan. The host I dealt with, Tim, is very friendly and laid back, and was easy to communicate with. We never met, even though they live right upstairs, but that's fine with me, it felt totally private! We were left some snacks and a bottle of wine that we were happy to utilize on our day trips (the snacks that is), and we really appreciated that. There is also good selection of books if you want to spend a day relaxing in the apartment. Great experience all around and I would highly recommend!

Just returned from a road trip from Minnesota to Asheville. Stayed in 10 different places, 9 hotels - Hampton Inns, Comfort Suites, etc. - and one VRBO - here. This was by far our favorite place. It was clean, quiet and private. Beautiful kitchen area, and very comfortable bed. We are not the B&B type as we like our privacy. Tim met us when we arrived, gave us some tips on the area and that was the last we saw or heard from him. Now we wonder why we would ever stay in a hotel again. Thank you for the wonderful stay.

Quiet & Restful

  • 5 of 5

Place looks just like the pictures and very clean. The kitchen was well equipped, even had coffee, creamer and snacks if you don't make it to the store the first day. Located far enough away to be quiet but just a seven minute drive to plenty of restaurants, grocery stores and shopping. Tons of books, magazines and tv stations for those rainy days you don't want to go any where. The road the house is located off of is nicely paved with mirrors at some of the turns so never had a problem navigating the road. I look forward to a longer stay next time.

Perfect for the two of us and our dog. Very comfortable, clean and Tim was a great host.

  • 4 of 5

One disadvantage of being on top of a mountain is that there are no flat surfaces to walk the dog! So, the dog and I walked up and down the mountain for exercise....there were some ouches involved! We had a great time.

Owner's Response: We always want both guests and their pets to feel welcome and comfortable at our home. As a gesture of hospitality, we, unlike many hosts, don't charge any pet fees, deposits, or cleaning charges. Approximately 75% of our guests bring dogs along -- some for as long as 6-month stays -- and some of them ask about places to walk their pets before booking. Other guests, upon arrival, ask for suggestions about where to walk their dogs and we are always available to make recommendations. Since we limit pets to small dogs only, we assume that the several smaller grassy areas around the house are adequate for bathroom breaks. We also assume our description of "mountainside" (about 1/3 the way up our mountain) alerts visitors that ours is not flat land in case that is a consideration. For longer walks, most have found our private road here on the mountain (approximately 1.5 miles in length) to be a beautiful, safe, serene, and clean place for walks by both humans and dogs (but, like virtually every mountain road, not flat!) Other options include many nearby areas of flat ground, including pet-friendly parks.

Quiet, private, and very relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a great, relaxing visit. We were able to meet Tim, who was very sociable and informative on the area. Easy to reach if needed. The kitchen was supplied well with dishes, etc for our cooking/baking needs. We were close to the activities of Asheville and surrounding area that we visited and had plenty of time to relax, enjoy a glass of wine in the evening or coffee in the morning. Beautiful area! Thanks Tim & Jeff!
