About Mark Morales
I was born in Manhattan, NYC. My parents were also born and raised there. Early influence by my aunt, a Broadway "gypsy" dancer inspired me to the performing arts where I worked with Joffrey Ballet and Alvin Ailey, and soon to transitioned to the Broadway stage in the revival of West Side Story working closely with Leonard Bernstein. Other shows include "Cats" and "Sunset Boulevard" working with Glenn Close while doing the soap opera, 'One Life To Live". I have just come out with a new CD titled, "Something's Coming" which will be a pleasure to share with you upon arrival to my home!
Mark Morales purchased this House in 2003
Why Mark Morales chose Asheville
Moving from an apartment in Manhattan to owning this home in Asheville has given me new perspective on what life has to offer, and I have tried to meld my former artistic adventures into this very environment. I invite you to take advantage of my lovely home, so comfortable and easy, so private yet within a 6 to 10 minute drive from all Asheville has offer!
What makes this House unique
Mountain views, underscored by a large 12' x 60' deck. Digital access for easy entry. Large great room and kitchen, large pantry and laundry room. Master has a king bed. There are few better ways to experience a great nights' sleep in our mountains. Peace and quiet are the grand juxtaposition to a busy night on the town, and so you shall have it here. Springtime will greet you with a multitude of bulbs and flowers, planted over 12 years. Fall and winter bring a riot of autumn color and pristine mountain views. There is a championship Disc-Golf park about 1/4 mile away (truly walking distance), that has extensive hiking and biking trails down to the French Broad River. My dog Jack and I explore them just about every day! This area of Asheville is one of the best kept secrets in Asheville!!

great backyard view but tired old house
this cottage is OK for short term stay but leaves many challenges for long term renters. The driveway to the house needs a 4 wheel drive vehicle and is a bit dangerous. Two people are the maximum I would recommend for this tight two bedroom house. Mark is a responsive landlord but clearly this house has been used as a rental property for a few years and needs a makeover.
There are some people that are never pleased, no matter how far you bend over backwards. The house was newly painted and wood floors installed less than 6 months ago...so not tired! Driveway is a bit steep as described in my description, but an all wheel drive or folks who drive well enough can easily navigate it - no 4 wheel needed, especially with parking above. Other reviews clearly express the pleasure most people have had staying at my lovely home - and so will you! At almost 1600 sf, an easy and comfortable fit for 4 people
Perfect location for a weekend trip to Asheville. Only a $10 Uber ride to downtown and the scenery and deck were great. House was comfortable, clean and well maintained. Perfect for 4 people!
great spot not far from town
Great little house just a couple miles from town
Great place to hang out in Asheville
Nice place and just a short drive to everything. Would rent again.
Beautiful scenic stay in Asheville
We stayed for three nights in this house and really enjoyed the entire experience. The home is nicely furnished, has been renovated, is certainly big enough and is well equipped with all you need to have a comfortable stay! The owner is very fiendly and responsive. I honestly would make the choice to stay there again. We enjoyed the house, the back deck that looked out over a vast amount of wilderness. The turkeys greeted us each morning and visited throughout the day (much to our dogs’ chagrin). The location is close to all we could want to do not only in Asheville but also it was easy to get to the fishing my guys were so intent on experiencing.
Cozy and perfect!
This house was a great vacation spot for New Years weekend in Asheville. It was close to downtown and easily accessible to other parts of town as it wasn’t far from the highways. The house is nesetled in a quiet neighborhood with lots of privacy. Turkeys joined us one afternoon and deer also came in the early mornings. The fire place and huge TV were great for movies and Sunday football.
Mark was very accommodating and opened up the 3rd bedroom so that we had a space for a small crib to put down a toddler. There was plenty of space for 4 adults, 1 child, and 2 dogs! We wish we could have enjoyed the spacious porch but it was a weekend of cold temps so we didn’t spend much time outside :)
