Asheville Bungalow - Close to Everything!

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,200 sq. ft.
Property type bungalow
Minimum Stay 3 - 30 nights


About the property

Within walking distance of many restaurants, night spots and shops.

This newly renovated 2BR/2BA home provides walkability and comfort in an urban setting. Rental rates are by the month, perfect for really getting to know the town and the mountains. For special stays, please inquire about rates. Our 1200 sq. ft. bungalow is within walking distance or a short drive to everything the city and surrounding mountains have to offer.

The home has two bedrooms, one king and one queen, each with a full bath. A spacious living room, covered patio, full kitchen with gas range and separate laundry room ensure that you have all the space and amenities you need. All rooms are on one level, with hardwoods throughout and central heat and air. Off-street parking is provided on site, as are free wireless internet and cable TV, though we bet you’ll be too busy otherwise enjoying yourself to notice. We are also close to numerous parks with hike and bike trails along the French Broad and Swannanoa Rivers. As you will see, our home is on the sidewalk that leads to everywhere!

Biltmore Estate, the Vanderbilt’s 8000 acre estate and French inspired castle, is located in Asheville, and is only 3 miles via interstate highway or quiet city streets away. Its 250 rooms are open every day for tours. The city is filled with historic homes including the Thomas Wolfe home and museum and too many excellent galleries, shops, restaurants and night spots to mention. While the city can hold you in awe, don't forget how convenient and beautiful the Appalachian rivers and mountains are when you visit. The Blue Ridge Parkway is only a few minutes from our door. Cataloochee Ski Resort and Smoky Mtn N.P. are a short drive away. White water rafting and tubing are available on several nearby rivers. If time permits, take a short drive to one of our many quaint mountain communities such as Black Mountain, Waynesville, or Weaverville.

The great food of Asheville is well known, but we also have a real claim to the title “Beer City.” USA Today recently recognized Asheville as the nation's unofficial east coast craft beer capitol when we earned third place in their Best Beer City poll. In fact, Asheville and Buncombe County have 18 craft breweries, most of those in Asheville. Additionally, three major craft breweries are in the area: Sierra Nevada is based in Mills River, Oskar Blues is in Brevard and New Belgium is building in West Asheville on the French Broad River.

Asheville has been referred to as the Paris of the South. Artists and collectors will not believe the quality and originality that is available. The Blue Spiral Gallery, Haen’s Gallery, the entire River Arts District, and the Highland Craft Gallery should not be missed, but there are too many outstanding art spaces to list here. Antiques and collectible fans will be in heaven, too. Our personal favorites are The Screen Door, Tobacco Road Antiques, Oddfellow’s Antiques, and the Kress Bldg. downtown. You will find a mix of the unusual, the unexpected and the “can’t live without” wherever you look.

Asheville is home, even to its visitors. Each street and neighborhood has its own charm. The Riverside Cemetery, final resting place for authors Thomas Wolfe and O'Henry, is a beautiful tree-covered space for walking and reflecting. Wherever you go, there are plenty of sidewalks to amble down, parks to rest in and food trucks to try.

Let our home be your central base. Enjoy the comfort, convenience, proximity. Take home the memories. Come back often.

About Charles Bennett

VRBO owners since 2010. Asheville devotees all our lives.

Charles Bennett purchased this bungalow in 2010

Why Charles Bennett chose Asheville

Central location. Walkability. Plenty of room with everything you need, but still a cozy home-away-from-home.

What makes this bungalow unique

A sidewalk for easy downtown access. A park/playground just one block away. The covered patio and fenced backyard. Central air (not always a given in Asheville). Even a covered carport for that unexpected rainy day. All the comforts of home.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

The house was adorable. Great location and nicely decorated. The back yard with the fire pit really nice & the covered patio wonderful. It could use a spatula for cooking though :). The place very roomy. We enjoyed our stay very much & glad we picked this place to stay while in Asheville.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

Great house for a quick getaway. Conveniently located to a lot of locations. You will need to drive but that we expected that. Easy to get to the Blue Ridge Parkway for hiking and then dash into town for a bite to eat and then hit up some breweries! Washer/dryer were great, backyard had a fire pit. Would recommend this house!

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

This bungalow was exactly what we wanted for a long couples weekend in Asheville! Perfect size for 4 people, 2 couples. Can't beat the location in West asheville, close to a lot of restaurants, coffee shops, and places to grab a drink. We really enjoyed Sunny Point Cafe and Odd's Cafe in the morning, both are minutes from the house. Also a quick drive to downtown for more restaurants and breweries and the Biltmore for a day trip. House was very clean, beds were comfortable after a long day of hiking, and we loved using the backyard fire pit a couple of nights.

Bungalow bliss

We enjoyed our stay in the Asheville Bungalow. The house was cozy and nicely updated, included all the essentials, and location was ideal. It was easy making arrangements for the rental. Bungalow is on a main street with other houses next door. Would stay again.
