Overview

About the property

Private 2 Bedroom, 1 Bath Cottage Centrally Located

Completely renovated, clean, well-furnished 2 bedroom home located on very quiet side street in a beautiful, historic Asheville neighborhood, 1.5 miles from downtown Asheville. The property offers plenty of open space, majestic hemlock trees, beautiful stonework features, all within a wonderfully-walkable neighborhood.

Inside the house, you'll walk on recently refinished hardwood floors throughout. The front bedroom is airy and well-lit with four screened, fully functioning windows. The back bedroom is a sleeper's paradise. Each of the bedrooms has a full-sized closet and a chest of drawers so you can unpack and just live.....

Ceiling fans in bedrooms and brand-new central heat and air-conditioning mean you've got full control of your comfort no matter what.

Blackout blinds on the windows mean Mother Nature won't wake late sleepers.

Brand-new, fully-tiled bathroom with historic hints, so you can clean up from your mountain hike in king-like comfort.

Full-size washer and dryer -- so you can travel light and wash while you're here.

The fully-stocked eat-in kitchen offers a full-size stove, refrigerator, dishwasher. The appliances were purchased in 2014.

The neighborhood is great for a quiet, exploratory stroll, and Asheville is a mecca for cyclists, rock climbers, hikers, and river boaters. The owners are avid cyclists and can recommend a full variety of road and mountain biking options, as well as lots of interesting mountain-view and waterfall hikes.

Please note:

This home provides a perfect get-away for couples, small families or small groups of friends. The owners care about the cottage and the neighborhood. The cottage is not an appropriate place for large gatherings, loud parties, or events. There is ample parking for 2 vehicles. If your group requires additional parking, please contact the owners prior to booking.

About Liz

We have lived in North Carolina for almost 30 years. We moved our family and our careers from Greensboro to Asheville in 2005. We have two children (ages 4 and 14).

Liz purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Liz chose Asheville

The street where we currently live is a dream spot to us because of its central location, its beauty, and the surrounding neighborhood. We have recently put a ton of energy into this place, and we have fallen in love with it anew. We are pleased to offer it for your enjoyment here, and we are sure you'll share our appreciation of this fantastic home.

What makes this cottage unique

This property is located in a quiet neighborhood, populated by historic properties and huge trees. The house itself is adjacent to and overlooks a small, heavily-wooded, public park with hiking trails. This neighborhood is incredibly walkable, and full of neat places to explore.

Wonderful, nice, clean, updated cottage

Cottage is VERY nice and very conveniently located. It has plenty of amenities that include anything you would reasonably expect plus some. We would definitely stay here again.

Great place, great location!

  • 5 of 5

This cozy cottage was perfect for our trip... had all the amenities we needed, super comfy accommodations, etc. Recently remodeled bathroom was super clean too. A nice stroll up from Biltmore Village area and just a mile or so away from the rest of the awesome downtown! Just as advertised, and Liz the owner was super informative and easy to contact. Would stay here again for sure!

Perfect spot for a weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect for me and my wife. Location was great-a very short commute to downtown and the Biltmore property. Everything in the cottage is new and updated as advertised. The hosts were responsive and easy to communicate with. I would highly recommend staying here.

Fantastic Family Getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

Spent three nights in Asheville with wife and kids and this was the perfect home base. House and accoutrements were "live in, not rental" quality including linens, fully stocked kitchen, wonderful bathroom and comfy living room (and all spotless). Perfectly located for those wishing to head downtown for lunch/dinner or to head over to the Biltmore for the day (both only 5mins away), but also nicely removed from the hustle and bustle of the tourists (when everyone needs a break). Hosts were next door, very pleasant and there if you needed them but not at all intrusive. One of the best VRBOs we've been in and we hope to book it again the next time we are in AVL.

Great Property

  • 4 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay at the cottage - Everything was as described and close to Biltmore House and downtown which made for less time in the car.
