Why get a hotel room when you can enjoy one of Asheville's most charming neighborhoods? Just a five-minute walk from downtown, this beautifully renovated cottage is nestled next to a grove of trees and is handily close to a local café for that morning cup. The cozy bungalow in Asheville’s most charming and historic neighborhood is ideal for a romantic getaway, a writing retreat, or a family vacation.
Along with a queen-size bed in the master and a private loft upstairs with a full-size bed, Corner Cottage boasts granite countertops, a library with desk and easy chair, WiFi, walk-in closet, and a bathroom with bidet and open shower. The living room is bright and sunny, with a fireplace for chilly mountain nights. There is a Smart TV so that you can access Netflix or Amazon, as well as local channels. The fully enclosed backyard with a deck and grill affords a private and spacious outdoor environment for you and your pets to enjoy, and the rocker on the sunny front porch is the perfect place to catch up on your reading.
The cottage, located on a quiet street with a private driveway that has room for two cars, is decorated with Oriental carpets from the owner’s travels in the Middle East, Africa, and Central Asia as well original artwork. It was completely refurbished in 2014. The comfortable and light-filled living room includes a spacious sofa, an electronic fireplace, and the hidden Smart TV. The open-plan kitchen includes seating for up to eight, a breakfast bar, and a built-in wine rack. There is a microwave, gas range, and all you need to whip up a gourmet meal from the produce you buy at the many local farmers' markets.
If you like good coffee and fresh-baked pastries for breakfast, they are steps away at a small locally owned bistro. Take a city tour from the Asheville Visitor Center just down the street, or choose from dozens of restaurants, bars, theaters, and galleries a short walk away.
You can also venture to Biltmore House, the Grove Park Inn, or the Blue Ridge Parkway, all located within a 10-minute drive. Ziplines, hiking trails, canoeing, and white-water rafting are within easy reach. But you may find Corner Cottage hard to leave!
