I am an educator from Asheville, NC who loves to travel and take on new learning opportunities during the summer. We own a home in Asheville where we love to host old and new friends. I also take care of two fantastic rabbits, Rocky and Bullwinkle. In my free time, I enjoy reading, going to pilates class, rabbit shepherding, and spending time with friends in my very favorite place, my hometown of Asheville!

This is a comfortable, conveniently located property in Asheville. We will always stay at The Yellow House while visiting family there. Quiet, private and super clean; plus the option to do laundry-a real bonus. Thank you so much Ruth.
A charming neighborhood and home
We loved the Yellow House. It was a nice surprise to be so close to West Asheville. What a charming neighborhood. We walked to dinner and breakfast. Took a day trip to the Biltmore. Enjoyed some local craft beer.
Inviting Home Away From Home
This was my family's first away trip with our almost one year old and our first experience using VRBO. Ruth's Yellow House quickly eased my nerves about having our little one away from home with a safe entry, thoughtful touches, and beautiful decor. The apartment is much bigger than the pictures show and so very clean! Ruth left personal touches as well - a welcome note on the fridge, candy dishes, and fresh flowers. We almost didnt want to leave to go exploring! When we did we used the suggestions Ruth gave and every one of them were on point. The location of the Yellow House is within walking distance to delicious restaurants, bakeries, coffee shops, and ice cream. Any venturing out into the downtown area and the Biltmore only took us approximately 15-20 minutes - not bad at all! After all the exploring it was nice to come back to a comfortable home away from home and enjoy the quiet. We didn't get a chance to enjoy the patio, but there's always next time. Would love to return soon!
Enjoyable, great location!!
The space was perfect for my 13 year old son and I. It was very clean and had all the necessary items that you would need to cook! Great location in West Asheville so everything we wanted to do was not a far drive and lots of restaurants and shops are in walking distance. The only thing I would say is that the sheets provided for the pull out sofa were not the correct size but we made due by just using the top sheet..and if you don't like hearing constant footsteps above you then don't rent this place. But it is a basement apartment so was not a surprise by any means. I was ok with it being a short trip but I couldn't have stayed super long there for only that reason. But everything else was perfect! The laundry room was a really nice extra bonus!
Thanks for your review, Ivey! I strive to make my guest's experience as pleasant as possible so I really appreciate the feedback. I'll relate to the housekeeper to double check the sheet size for the pull out and we'll be more intentional with "soft feet" upstairs. : ) It was a pleasure hosting you and I'm so glad you had a great trip!
WEST ASHEVILLE is a neighborhood with its own unique vibe. Just take a stroll down Haywood Road, the historic main street running through the heart of this community, and you will see revitalization taking place everywhere. At one end is the River Arts district, where artists are setting up studios in renovated factory buildings. Along the river, the French Broad Greenway project has created beautiful recreational space. At the other end, historic buildings house new businesses alongside second and third generation shops and new mixed use development.
