Very desirable north Asheville neighborhood 5 minutes drive from downtown. Several neighborhood restaurants are within walking distance, supermarkets and hardware store are a two minute drive and all the amenities of downtown Asheville are only a few minutes further. UNC Asheville is a few blocks away and the Grove Park Inn is a 5 minute drive. Wonderful hiking and scenic drives close by.

Outstanding place in an outstanding town

  • 5 of 5

This house was wonderfully comfortable, with great amenities and in an amazing location. Besides being historic and in the wonderful Norwood Park neighborhood, it was a 5 minute ride to downtown, a 5-min walk to the greenways, UNC and a 10 minute ride to the BlueRidge Parkway.

The kitchen has all the right equipment to both live comfortably and to entertain. The bedrooms are nice sized, comfortable and have great linens. Bathrooms are very modern. The fenced yard was great for our dog and had plantings that gave it both color and privacy to make time it in wonderful.

This house is a gem - everything about it was a 10. The owners are easy to deal with, accommodating and very aware of doing things to ensure the comfort and quality experience of their guests.

This was our first stay in Asheville - we lucked out by finding this amazing property. You can't beat the location and its renovations have made it more comfortable than many other period houses. As others have said, if you want a near perfect spot in Asheville (walking, close to highways, close to the city (really need a car), close to the breweries, close to the parkway) this is it. Loved it.

Perfect house for family vacation in Asheville

  • 4 of 5

Heather, We absolutely love your house! It is a charming house, in a nice area (only 1.2 miles from the heart of downtown Asheville), and you could not have been more helpful. Comfortable beds - My only suggestion would have been two twins in one of the rooms :) The big bright dinning room was great for breakfast and the kitchen was equipped nicely. Thanks for everything - we will definitely be back.

great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Asheville many times and this was the most enjoyable house yet. Its location one block off Merrimon is perfect for walking to numerous restaurants. Being in the Grove Park neighborhood is wonderful for walking or running. The house has been restored and renovated very nicely. The kitchen makes cooking effortless with a gas range. If you want a near perfect spot to stay while you are in Asheville, this is it.

Perfect Asheville stay

  • 5 of 5

This renovated Craftsman definitely has an Asheville vibe. Our family group of 3 adults and 2 young children had everything we needed for a 2-night stay. The kitchen was amazing. All the rooms were spacious except for the tiny living room--pretty cozy when we were all trying to watch a bit of TV. Then again, we didn't come to Asheville to watch TV. The front porch with swing was a better place to chill. It's a bit of a hike to walk to downtown--best to have a car. Thanks, Heather, for working with us on check in and out times.

Like Staying at the Home of a Friend

  • 5 of 5

This home is conveniently located in a neighborhood of lovely homes a mile north of downtown. There are many restaurants and grocery stores nearby. The house is nicely updated and had everything our family needed for our five day stay including a lovely front porch and rear patio and barbecue. The neighborhood borders the Grove Park Inn and golf course and is close to UNC Asheville. The owner was very responsive. I would definitely recommend this property.

Perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here last weekend to celebrate our son's graduation from UNCA. This was the PERFECT choice! Right off campus and close to downtown. Walking distance to great BBQ and the best ice cream around! Tucked back in a charming neighborhood and had the greatest fenced in back yard to grill out and celebrate with our family. The house itself is immaculate and beautifully decorated. Everything you need is here which is so convenient. Plenty of room for all of us to hang out - loved the front porch and swing as well! Thanks for making it so easy for us to just enjoy - hate that it took us four years to find it but we'll be back!
