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.

Well-appointed property in an excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough good things about this cottage in Biltmore Village! Lovely decor, comfy, and in a beautiful setting. Liz and Chris live in the house right near the cottage and both were very responsive to any questions we asked. Appliances looked brand new and the entire place was immaculate. We were on the go for most of our trip, but it was nice to come back to the cottage and just relax. Located a few minutes from downtown and Biltmore Village shops, as well as the Estate (a must see). There are several breweries nearby, as well as quaint coffee shops. Chris can give you great advice on bicycle routes. You really can't go wrong staying here!

Beautiful cottage great base for Asheville and hiking

  • 5 of 5

The place was the perfect size for our family. The kitchen had everything we needed. The washer and dryer came in handy with two young kids. The whole place was tastefully decorated. We really felt at home during our week's stay. Wish we were there in cooler weather to try out the beautiful stone fireplace.

Convenient, relaxing, clean and comfy. Home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

We booked this wonderful cottage for three nights without really knowing how long we would be in Asheville. Liz, the owner, was very easy to work with. I can't say enough good things about this cottage. It was CLEAN, well stocked, convenient to Biltmore Village (2-3 min) and Downtown Asheville (5 min), but you wouldn't know it by looking out of the widows of the cottage. Will deffinately be back!
