About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath With Fold Out Couch On Mountain Side And Close To Town

This newly finished out hayloft on a south sloping mountain side is the perfect place to plan your vacation in Asheville. Located just five miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway, eight miles from the magnificent Biltmore Estate, and ten miles from our vibrant downtown, this serene spot offers quiet comforts and convenience. Also for cycling enthusiasts, mountain bike trails are equally accessible and road riding is literally right out the door.

This newly renovated space has a large bedroom with a queen size bed and a large living area with a fold out couch. There is also a twin size bed that can be used. The kitchen is fully equipped in case you decide to eat in and can accommodate four at the breakfast bar. The space is beautifully lit and is also a wonderful spot to rest and relax in between the many adventures you can enjoy in the Asheville area.

Everything We Needed

  • 5 of 5

This place was just what we were looking for when traveling to Asheville for the 2 of us. There's plenty around you to stock up in the place if need be, 10-15 to the downtown area, and close to jumping right into the mountains for a drive around the Blue Ridge Mountains for beautiful views. Inside is very well kept with a comfortable bed and just an overall cozy spot. Andy was very accommodating. Couldn't have been better.

Simply Amazing

  • 5 of 5

To begin with, the property owner was very quick in his responses to our inquiry and questions on the rental. Following, he made our last minute trip to NC much less stressful.

Next, the rental was adorable and so clean! This rental was perfect for our small family. Everything we needed was included and the owner was very easy to reach throughout the duration of our stay.

The location was PERFECT. It was a short drive downtown where we spent lots of our time eating at the fabulous local eateries! We did a couple of other touristy things and the rental was close to everything! The drive up there is JUST beautiful full of amazing sights. I enjoyed the slow speed limits so I was able to just admire the beauty!

Finally, I just want to thank you for opening this home to us. Your home is beautiful, cozy, and perfect for what we needed. Thank you for working with us and being flexible and for being so easy to reach while we were in town. We loved Asheville and want to come back and this home will be the TOP of our list of places to stay! THank you for everything.

Great apartment - quiet and clean

  • 4 of 5

Lovely large apartment with nice sitting areas, TV, and bedroom. Kitchen has all the appliances you need. Clean, quiet and private. The only negative for us was getting there. The road was very windy and a long way from the highway so it made us not want to come and go very often.
