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.

Perfect Spot for a Family

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 8-month-old son, and I so enjoyed staying in the cottage this weekend. The location was convenient to Biltmore Village, downtown, and the Blue Ridge Parkway. We especially loved having the kitchen and washer/dryer as options with a baby. The house was spotless when we arrived and I didn't worry about my son crawling all over the place all weekend. We'd definitely stay here again!

This property is perfection! Beautiful inside and out. Clean, comfy, close to downtown,food,shopping

  • 5 of 5

Every room is beautifully decorated with all new furnishings. The two bedrooms are warm and inviting, each with a closet and large chest of drawers, and the beds are so comfortable. The bathroom is spotless and renovated, there is even a blow dryer for convenience. The living room is well appointed and has a gorgeous working stone fireplace. The kitchen is also newly renovated and fully equipped with anything you could ever need...my friend and I both love to cook and found everything we needed at our fingertips. Liz and Chris were thorough with all the information, directions and answers to my questions...and always quick to respond to my inquiries. I can't say enough about this soectacular property and our wonderful experience there. Bravo Liz and Chris!!!!
