About the Property

Historic cottage in Montford, a short walk to downtown Asheville. Furnished.

This charming 1910 cottage in Asheville's historic Montford neighborhood was completely renovated and won the prestigious Griffin Award for historic preservation. The cottage retains its historic charm with original fireplace, doors, and woodwork. The kitchen has all the modern appliances you'd expect. In summer, enjoy A/C and fenced backyard with patio. In winter, enjoy the cozy fireplace.

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.

Enjoy an evening sitting on the front porch, reading in front of the fireplace, or grilling on the patio in the fenced-in backyard. The cozy cottage is 865 sq ft and has all the amenities you'd expect. The master bedroom has flat-screened tv with large closet and guest bedroom has queen bed, small walk-in closet and office set up with printer/scanner. The LR has flat screen TV with extended hi def package. The kitchen has a gas stove, D/W, microwave, coffee maker, and just about everything you would need for gourmet dinners.

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.

Need to work? The second bedroom is set up with wireless internet, printer, work desk and lounge chair.

The fenced backyard has a small patio with gas grill.

Please call with any questions about the area or for open dates! Going on three years, the cottage has booked quickly for the entire year, so it's best to inquire EARLY.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We have wanted to live in Asheville since our youth because of its natural beauty and find it to be a cultual mecca. We feel so fortunate to finally have the opportunity to be here.

Why the Owner Chose Historic Montford, Asheville, NC, USA:
Montford is such a lovely, safe and convenient neighborhood. This historic home has so much charm and the walkability throughout the neighborhood and downtown is unbeatable. Within 10 minute walk: Grove Arcade, St. Stephen's Basillica--national landmark, Friday night drum circle in Prichard Park, downtown art studios, River Arts District, and dozens of art-deco downtown buildings. 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! Within a two-mile drive you'll arrive at Biltmore Estate and the Blue Ridge Parkway with dozens of great hiking trails and nature's beauty.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The cottage is clean, comfortable, and set up for a pleasant stay. Our guests have enjoyed the short walk to downtown. Most leave their car at the cottage and walk to dozens of local cafes and restaurants. The fenced backyard and patio offer privacy for reading or outdoor cooking. Montford is a beautiful, safe neighborhood to walk, bike, or run. Nearby are the Greenway, parks, tennis courts, and Montford Recreation Center. 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.
