About Linda Lazar Curatolo
Linda Lazar Curatolo is a writer and web designer from Detroit who fell in love with Asheville, like everyone else who visits. She achieved her dream of purchasing a vacation home in the Blue Ridge Mountains after visiting for many years.
Linda Lazar Curatolo purchased this House in 2014
Why Linda Lazar Curatolo chose Asheville
This is the perfect location to absorb all that Asheville has to offer. It's walkable to hiking trails but close to Downtown Asheville food, art, music, shopping, brewing, history and culture. Even gems such as Biltmore Estate, Black Mountain, Lake Lure, waterfalls and national parks are within minutes! The Blue Ridge Parkway is around the corner, and the Mountain to Sea Trail which connects with many other trails is within walking distance to the house.
What makes this House unique
Excellent connectivity, for cell phone and internet service. The view of the mountains from the back of the house, and the view of the woods in any direction is beautiful and soothing. Only one neighbor is nearby and unobtrusive to the privacy this neighborhood offers. If you are a hiker, biker or even a birdwatcher this is an amazing location, but not isolated from the city conveniences. You can walk to the trails off the Blue Ridge Parkway, which is the road next to yours, yet drive to top destinations such as the Biltmore Estate, Funky West Asheville, Downtown Asheville and even Black Mountain in minutes. The close proximity to the major expressways, but far enough to enjoy peace and quiet in a wooded setting, is probably one of the best combinations you could hope for in the area.

Great location, great stay for the price!
This house was perfect for us. We had two adult couples and our teenage daughter. The two bedrooms upstairs had plenty of room and there were two full baths so we each had our own bathroom. My daughter had the whole basement to herself and there was even a tiny half bath down there which was convenient for her. She enjoyed the fireplace down there too! The beds were comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed. The view was beautiful and it was around a 15 min drive to Biltmore House, which is what brought us down there in the first place. Finally, I’d like to say that I’ve stayed in several rental houses and this one had the most reasonable security deposit and the easiest rules for checking out out of any I’ve stayed in. Thank you Linda!
Thanks Dena! I'm glad you found the house to your liking. And I appreciate the feedback on how easy it was to checkout. Please stay again if you're ever in the area.
Awesome place, easy to get to and so relaxing
Thanks so much and come back again!
Very nice home
We were looking for a little get away with friends and this was perfect. Very quiet and relaxing.
Very happy you enjoyed your getaway. Thanks so much for taking the time to let me know, Mark.
Comfortable, homey, convenient, complete.
Here on business so we didn't spend a lot of time at the property, but everything about it was really nice, and the owner went out of her way to make our stay comfy and convenient. If ever in Asheville again, we'll definitely rebook.
Thanks for the thoughtful summary of what makes the house a good choice. Please do rebook whenever you need a true home away from home.
Nice and convenient
The property was clean, cozy, and comfortable. It is also conveniently close to downtown. We had no problems.
Our Stay at 65 Lover's Loop
The house was situated in a quiet area, minutes from downtown Asheville and minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway, a perfect location.
The owner, Linda Curatolo, was very helpful.
Generally, we found the house fit our needs. We made use of the deck and the patio, especially in the evenings.
A few suggestions: The downstairs half bathroom was very tiny and made use difficult. A solution might be to take part of the closet and make the half bath larger and more functional.
Since we ate two dinners there, supplying the kitchen with some good cutting/carving knives would've been helpful.
We found the house to be clean when we arrived. However, we would suggest the owner discourage renters from leaving half-used food items.
We would recommend the house to others.
Thank you for suggestions. I will speak to the cleaning service. It is in my check out instructions for guests not to leave anything behind. As for the tiny bath, since there are two full baths with showers and bathtubs we have decided to remove the tiny “half” bath from the listing description until we can decide on it’s future. I appreciate any and all feedback as it helps me fine tune the experience for my guests. It was a pleasure to host your family. I hope it gave you a pleasant and well deserved getaway.
