About the property

Luxury Bedrooms, Rolling Views, Fire Pit, Decks, Patio, Games

Easy 6.6 Miles to Biltmore Estates, 6.5 Miles to Downtown Asheville (10-12 minutes). Uber and Taxi's service this location. Perfect home base for your group's stay in Asheville.

Games and Restaurant guide provided.


Relax on the back patio, just steps from the kitchen, while cooking up family favorites on the large gas grill, just steps away from the stone fire pit. Relax around the fire on warm summer evenings or cool spring and fall nights, telling stories and cooking S'Mores. Watch your kids safely play in the large fenced front yard, wrap around decks or veranda. They can also join the neighborhood kids in bicycling around the cul-de-sac and other dead end streets.


Spread out in the large king beds and walk in closets found in each of the 3 spacious upstairs bedrooms. Relax in the the large garden tub in the attached master bathroom or the very spacious full bath located in the upstairs hallway.

Main Level:

Walk barefoot on the beautiful cherry hardwood floors throughout the main level. Get familiar with the large spacious kitchen stocked by myself, a chef. Chop away on my favorite rolling block cutting board or eat out every night, it is Asheville after all.

Relax in the cozy living room with large flat screen TV with all you can watch Netflix already set up and high speed internet.

The spacious main level bedroom is complete with king bed and sitting area with futon for extra guests. This room only has curtains and a privacy screen for privacy. As a minimalist you'll find what you need but not much clutter in my home. The dining room, one of my favorite areas, has a fantastic barn-wood table that seats 8 and some additional seating is available in the comfortable kitchen bar stools and downstairs.

More Space/Basement:

For more than 6 guests we automatically open up the spacious and artsy basement with 2 additional bedrooms (1 king and 1 queen), full bathroom, additional kitchen, living room, dining area.

Entertain your kids or guests with an additional flat screen TV, foosball table, board games, and small pool table. For a basement with no windows it feels cozy and artsy with the taller ceilings and modern but simple design. It really feels spacious at over 1000 square feet. It is not fancy but its comfortable with memory foam mattresses and plenty of space for your extra guests for entertaining and enjoying board game night.

The Area:

Tunnel Road hosts shopping and restaurants, as well as leading you right into downtown (only 6.5 miles, 10 Minutes!). The home is just two miles off of Tunnel Road near the VA hospital. If you'd like to visit West Asheville or the River Arts District its all a short drive, it is convenient to I-240, I-40, and all of Asheville.

You are only 2 miles to Filo, a local coffee shop featuring excellent coffee and baked goods. East Village Grille with fantastic wings, grouper ruben sandwich, and huge greek salads, it's one of my favorite places to eat in town. (it's right next door to Filo) I am a chef so I will have plenty of great places to recommend. It's very close to the Blue Ridge Parkway. You could easily ride your bicycle and get on the parkway to enjoy a beautiful bike ride and/or hike from one of the nearby trails.


We hire professional cleaners to make your stay even better!

Check in:

4:30 check in and 10:00 am check out with early and late check outs allowed when available.

Interaction with Guests

My goal is to make your stay as pleasant as possible. I will be available to give as much or as little conversation, advice, directions, and information as you need.

The Neighborhood

Quiet, friendly but not nosy, convenient to lots of restaurants, shopping, about a mile from the Blue Ridge Parkway! You could safely and easily ride your bike to the Parkway entrance from my home. Please drive slowly through our quiet, dead end neighborhood.

Maximum occupancy is 15.

About Kelsey

Great food and unique culture are rare to find together in one place, somehow though Asheville has managed to do it by weaving culture, art, great food and locally brewed beers, cool farms, and neat local businesses together into a charming town nestled into these ancient mountains full of waterfalls, hiking, and rich history. Traveling around the world inspired me to study Culinary Arts and to live here in this amazing place

Kelsey purchased this house in 2013

Why Kelsey chose Asheville

Its a well equipped, professionally cleaned home, just 6.5 miles from downtown. Lovely neighborhood with limited mountain views, wrap around porch, large patio, propane grill, fire pit, fenced yard and much more.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Myself, my husband, my sister, and our 5 children had a fantastic time at Kelsey's home. We stayed there for 2 whole weeks. The kitchen was very well equipped. You could really tell that it was someone's home. All the beds were super comfortable. The fenced yard was great for the kids. Kelsey even opened up the washer and dryer area for us which she doesn't usually do. With 5 little ones it was very much appreciated. The netflix on the big TV was great for the kids.

I hope we can make this a yearly thing for our family.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent the weekend here for a bachelorette weekend with 12 ladies and it was perfect. House has a little wear and tear but clean and cozy! We had no issues. Plenty of room and close to downtown!

The house was very nice. It accomodated our group well.

  • 4 of 5

The house was as expected. There was a little confusion about our arrival time but the owner took care of it right away. She even offered adding an extra nights stay. I would recommend this property to large families.

Great home in a peaceful neighborhood, just east of downtown

  • 4 of 5

This was a family weekend of siblings, as three of us turn 50 this Fall, and a great location this was. Kelsey was helpful in getting us there and keeping a great house. The drive to downtown Asheville or the west side was no problem at all. The house itself needs a bit of care, and we did have a plumber fixing a leak which took over the master bath for a little while, but we were only around, mainly, to sleep. I love the chairs on the wraparound porch.
