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 Limestone
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.

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.
Great place! Everything so fresh and clean! Great hosts!
Thanks so much for your wonderful review. We send you both great blessings on your path together.
Hosts Karen and Greg were very nice - the apartment with separate bedroom was clean and nicely furnished with living/dining room, Direct TV and kitchenette with fridge, microwave, toaster oven and coffee maker. Full 4 piece bath. Lots of towels, etc. Beautiful, comfortable king sized bed. Thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Asheville and highly recommend this residence for your stay
Hey Sandy, it was so great to meet you and host you and get to know you. Thanks so much for your kind review. We would love to host you again. Please come back again!
Beautiful Basement Apt.
This basement apartment was beautiful, and very comfortable. We were impressed the first moment we stepped in the door. Everything we needed was available and the king bed was super. We will be returning here if we have events in Asheville.
Cozy Apartment in Quiet Neighborhood
We visited Asheville for a birthday getaway, March 3-9, 2018.
We were warmly welcomed by our hosts, Karen and Greg, and were given lots of helpful information to get us started on our adventure! The apartment was comfy and cozy with everything we needed for an enjoyable and relaxing stay! The neighborhood was very quiet and peaceful! We will definitely be back to visit Asheville and our new friends and their lovely home!
Thanks for your wonderful review. We really enjoyed hosting you and meeting you. Please come back and visit us again.
