The best of both worlds! If you are looking to escape and get away, you will find a peaceful, spacious home on 2+ acres of private and serene lush landscape with mountain views to indulge in and walk through. If you want the full Asheville experience, you're just 10 minutes from everything you'd want in Asheville, including downtown Asheville, the Biltmore House and 2 minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway, known for spectacular views and trailheads. Downtown Asheville is filled with culture, ranging from art galleries and world-renowned restaurants to nationally recognized breweries (named Beer City USA 2009 and almost every year since!) and live entertainment from locals. Hiking, rafting and zip-lining are all local favorites and available for the full outdoor experience!
This clean, private 1200 square-foot space, which is the downstairs of the Maxwell House (separate, locked unit/private entrance), includes a master bedroom with a queen bed and comfortable bedding and a closet, and a guest bedroom with a full bed, comfortable bedding and an armoire. Main areas include a fully functioning kitchen with stove, refrigerator, microwave and Keurig coffee maker (coffee provided) if you prefer to stay in and cook and a spacious lounging area with tv and a roku device (internet streaming similar to Apple TV). Your stay also comes with a complementary bottle of wine and a small jar of local honey to enjoy compliments of your host!
The outdoor landscaping is absolutely gorgeous with 2+ acres of well-kept foliage and mountain views. It is very serene and a great place to either just sit on the porch swing or hang your hammock or take a quiet walk through nature and down to the koi pond. There's also a nice patio area with a picnic table to eat your meals outside.
Mr. Maxwell, hence the name "The Maxwell House", built this home with his own hands in 2001 and has also maintained all the foliage on the land since then. Mr. Maxwell was born and raised in Asheville and has spent his entire life here and know's the area better than most. His hospitality and resourcefulness are available on-site or by phone as he lives in the upstairs of The Maxwell House in a completely separate, locked unit. He's also more than welcome to respect your privacy and you'd never know he was even there if you so desire.
