About the Property

Why drive when you can walk to so many restaurants, night spots and shops.

This newly renovated 2BR/2BA home is in the heart of Asheville's hidden-gem neighborhood, the arty West Asheville district. It provides walkability and comfort in an urban setting. You’ll love being just a few blocks from West Asheville’s best restaurants; Biscuit Head, Sunny Point Café, Nine Mile, Oyster House Brewing Co., The Admiral and the West End Bakery are just a few. Isis and Mothlight, two of Asheville’s most popular music venues and night spots, and many locally-owned shops and galleries featuring art and vintage collectibles, combine to make this area one of Asheville’s most vibrant.

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 of all of West Asheville and 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 city parks with hike and bike trails along the rivers (French Broad and Swannanoa). 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 the owner: VRBO owners since 2010. Asheville devotees all our lives.

Why the Owner Chose West Asheville, Asheville, NC, USA:
Central location. Walkability. Plenty of room with everything you need, but still a cozy home-away-from-home.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
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.
