About Karen Sanders
I am a nurse with 40 years experience. I teach Nursing School part-time, and have my own business as a Transitions Coach for Nurses and an RN Patient Advocate. I am a master gardener and an avid mountain biker. I am in love with nature here in these Blue Ridge Mountains. It is with great gratitude that I share these incredible space, yard, forest, and nature with you.
Karen Sanders purchased this Apartment in 1999
Why Karen Sanders chose Asheville
This house is located on the side of a mountain three miles from a busy part of South Asheville. It is completely rural and isolated. We have a huge diversity of wildlife including bears, turkey, fox, migratory birds, hawks, owls, rabbits, and many others. It is a beautifully resting and restorative property. I was drawn to this place because of the quietness and spirituality here.
What makes this Apartment unique
There are views of the mountains from the front porch. The back and side of the house are located in a rhododendron forest so it is exquisitely quiet and peacful in this restful and spiritual place. There is a natural spring in the back of the forest and when it rains, you can hear it gently babbling. The apartment has been appointed with natural, restful light blue tones with lovely furnishings. It was completely renovated when my daughter went off to college. It has its own entry, with a beautiful back porch on which to sit and have a cup of tea or coffee or a glass of wine in the evening. There is artwork in the apartment done by a local artist.

Best apartment, super clean and a great place to stay
This is a nice place to stay and Karen is a wonderful host. The place was perfectly located in the woods but not far from most anything you might need including one of the most comfortable movie theaters, grocery stores, pharmacy, restaurants, and Asheville is a short drive away. The unit is a walkout basement but you would never realize it from inside. The deck outside is very private with a great wooded view.
Thank you so much for this wonderful review. It was our great pleasure to host you. We are so happy you enjoyed our space. Please come back and visit again. Blessings!
Beautiful finished basement apartment w/ surrounding woods and close to Asheville downtown
Comfortable king-sized bed with a spare twin bed, and a sofa in living room with kitchenette and tons of space! Amazing owners who are just great to be around and talk with about anything.
Pleasant safe place to stay. Close proximity to Asheville.
Lovely warm environment. In a natural setting. Much better than city living.
Thanks so much Patti. It was lovely hosting you in our wonderful space. Thanks for beautifully tending it while you were here. Please come again!
Clean, welcoming, well located
Karen was a marvelous hostess. Her communications were clear and prompt. The apartment was ready when we arrived, clean and well supplied. Highly recommend this place when in Asheville.
Thanks, Debbie, for your sweet review. We enjoyed hosting you. Please come back and stay again. Thank you so much for leaving the apartment in terrific shape. Blessings.
Lovely place to stay
The apartment was very nice. Owner very nice and helpful. Unfortunately my husband was on a walker at the time and getting from the car to inside the apt. was a little challenging. Would definitely recommend this place to others.
Very nice and great view!
Although I had a quick trip (just one night) I was overall pleased with the communication of the owner and the accommodations.
Hey Jeff, we were delighted to host you both. Thanks for your kind remarks! Come again.
