About Ria Harris
I am a NC native currently living at the coast of NC. Originally I am from the foothills and plan to live out my life in this amazing state.
Ria Harris purchased this House in 2013
Why Ria Harris chose Oakley
Owning a second home in Asheville allows me the opportunity to enjoy both ends of our beautiful state.This is my home and not just an investment property. I love Asheville and spending time here and hope to share that with you.
What makes this House unique
My home has the character that older homes possess with the modern touches of a complete makeover. Main Street is safe, quiet, a mix of young and old residents and is convenient to any where in Asheville in minutes.

Lovely house. Ms Harris is wonderful to work with and has a welcoming spirit.
The house is very nice and in a wonderful, quiet neighborhood. The house is ideally located close to downtown and Hendersonville road. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there and will be going back. So grateful for Ms. Harris and her property.
Meticulously maintained rental close to Asheville's amenities.
A beautiful, well-equipped rental close to Asheville's downtown, Biltmore Village and Estate.
The interior is bright and cozy yet spacious with an updated kitchen featuring every amenity needed to cook meals for a big family. The decor is eclectic, the furniture comfortable (beds included) and the deck in excellent repair with a nice backyard.
Best of all, Ria is a delight.
The house was great
We enjoyed our stay very much. The house was clean and we didn't need to buy anything except some food. The access to the downtown area and the Biltmore were great, only a 5-15min. drive. Thank you again and we will most certainly be back in the future
Home Sweet Home
I almost hate to praise a place that I would like to secretly keep for my own, but I will share our experience at this home! It was just as stated from other reviews, very well kept and super clean, I can attest that I am a clean freak and it met my standards top notch! It was comfortable and felt so much like home I hated to leave! Great instructions given for helping you feel comfortable while there. It was so close to Biltmore and the Biltmore village just down the hill from the home, the neighborhood was very quiet and peaceful! I have nothing negative to say about it all, enjoy your stay here and happy exploring Asheville! Thanks Ria for a wonderful place to come to, we will come again in the future and hope to stay at your wonderful home away from home a little longer next time, so much to do so little time!
Ria's house was a perfect place to stay at for our trip to Asheville!
The house that we stayed at was great! We all enjoyed the look of the place, and the property itself was nice as well. Having access to things like a grill, a deck, washer/dryer, etc., makes you realize how much you miss out on staying at a hotel. The location was great; close to the Biltmore and downtown, and in a nice neighborhood. The owner, Ria, was easy to work with over email and made some great suggestions to make our visit even better. The next time I visit Asheville, I'll be looking to see if this house is available again.
Quiet, cozy and very comfortable
My husband and I really enjoyed staying at this very cozy and warmly decorated cottage. You can really feel an artist's touch in every room, as there are different types of artwork on the walls and interesting pieces around the cottage. Although the cottage has been updated with modern conveniences like stainless appliances and a stack washer/dryer, it still retained the warmth of a Craftsman cottage, with original hardwood floors [loved the richly-toned dhurrie rugs scattered about] and built-ins to tuck your things into. It was very clean, felt like a true home, not a rental, and the owner answered any questions we had promptly by text or email. We loved the outdoor deck in the mornings for breakfast—the only sounds are the birds in the trees. Close by is Biltmore Village and Biltmore Estate [I loved the period film costumes on display and the Vanderbilt wedding gown exhibit], but you are also close to a unique antique mart called Screened Door, which we browsed for a long time and had wished we could take everything home on the plane. It's an easy drive into downtown Asheville, too, where we dined outside at Rhubarb—really delicious homemade gnudi—and street musicians that kept us entertained during the meal. We also had fun playing Monday night Quizzo at Jack of the Wood–the Yo Philly team did OK! We especially enjoyed strolling the River Arts District with their many galleries and working studios, and grabbed a light lunch down the steps at Bull and Beggar. Also recommend Cucina24 for fine Italian food and homemade pastas. Their focaccia is so light and airy! We sat outside at Mayfels and took in the music in the square while eating Cajun-spiced seafood. Yummy shrimp and grits. For a unique cocktail you won't find anywhere else in a beautiful space, stop by Sovereign Remedies. Thanks to our kind hosts for a lovely home base for our first visit to Asheville.
Sounds as if you truly made the most of your time in Asheville. We are thankful that you enjoyed our home as we too enjoy a home base rather than a hotel when we travel. Consider coming again. You will never bore of the area.
