About Adam

The owner, Bill, and his wife are retired from being self-employed retailers. They became interested in West Asheville after spending time here visiting relatives, including three children who live in the area. Bill enjoys remodeling homes and did most of the work himself to bring the Haywood House back to its former glory. Now, they look forward to spending more time here and sharing this beautiful home with others so they can enjoy the West Asheville community.

Adam purchased this house in 2015

What makes this house unique

The Haywood House is unlike any other vacation rental in West Asheville. It is roomy and comfortable, the interior and exterior remain true to the Craftsman period, and most important, it is directly on Haywood Road, just steps from downtown West Asheville. You simply will not find another rental that accommodates as many people and is so conveniently located.

Lovely stay!

  • 5 of 5

Had a girls long weekend at the Haywood House and what a treat! The house is beautiful. It is immaculately kept and anything you need is there (we always bring extra paper products, trash can liners, paper towels, etc. - we didn't touch what we brought). The house is an easy walk to great restaurants. The owners are wonderful. We will definitely stay again!

This was an excellent house. Very Clean, wonderfully redone. The Bathrooms were really nicely done. House was downtown, several nice restaurants within walking distance. We had seven Adults and had plenty of room. Kitchen was wonderful stocked with dishes, pots and pans everything that you needed. All Paper products you need, really thought of everything. Grocery store was only a few blocks away. Plenty of parking and the owners were super helpful. We gladly stay here again, perfect location. Everyone thought it was a wonderful house.
