About the Property
Historic cottage in Montford, a short walk to downtown Asheville. Furnished.
Location is one of our cottage's greatest assets. Leave your car at the cottage and explore Asheville's vibrant downtown. We are within a 10-minute walk to the heart of downtown Asheville's many locally owned restaurants. Walk to the Friday night drum circle, downtown after-five concerts, the library, or have glass of wine at Sante Wine Bar in the Arcade.
Fully furnished, including all utilities, wi-fi, extended cable TV, internet, and laundry.
The cottage sits at the end of a quiet street. Walk, bike, or jog through the beautiful and historic Montford neighborhood. The Greenway is only blocks away.

The cottage is in a perfect location to explore downtown Asheville, dozens of great independent restaurants, many art galleries, and nearby River Arts district. We have been named Beer City for several years because of the notable craft breweries, some within walking distance.
Owners can provide you with information on running or walking trails in the neighborhood and the surrounding mountains.
In the cottage, there's an extensive information booklet containing a list of our favorite downtown restaurants, and the many great tourist attractions, many within walking distance or a short drive.

Asheville's cozy downtown--with many cafes and restaurants--has been called 'The Paris of the South.' The Montford Historic District is rated one of North Carolina's top historic district by This Old House magazine!

The Asheville Chamber of Commerce is three blocks away; here you can find lots of local information, including the Trolley Tour for Asheville. Judy, a recent guest for two months, told us, 'Why would I want to stay anywhere else in Asheville.' She just relocated to Montford.
