About Darcy Varney
I am from the Asheville area and Bruce is from California. He relocated to Asheville to be closer to his daughter in 2010. 2 days after arriving in Asheville we met and fell in love immediately! Since getting married in 2011, our love for the beach took us to St Croix, USVI where we decided we were too far away from our 4 children. In 2017 we moved back to the states and landed in Hilton Head SC. We visit Asheville regularly and love the mountains as much as we do the ocean!!
Darcy Varney purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why Darcy Varney chose Avery Creek
This property is where I grew up so it holds a special place in our hearts. It is perfect for a quick getaway or an extended stay. It is located in the small community of only 5 homes so has privacy yet is just minutes away from the fun Asheville has to offer! The location is AWESOME!! Close proximity to south Asheville, Biltmore Park, the Blue Ridge Parkway, French Broad River and Airport. This property offers off the main path privacy yet is smack in the middle everything! The perfect combination for a vacation getaway!!!

Very clean and updated. Prettier than the pictures give it justice. There was someone staying in the other side of the duplex when we were there, and I never heard them at all. Very quiet getaway which was exactly what my husband and I were looking for.
Excellent and clean place to stay. Close enough to everything
Super clean and close to most everything to do in Asheville. Bed was cozy and was nice to have everything in the kitchen if needed. Next time we visit we will be staying here again for sure. Thanks!
Thank you for the great review. We look forward to you staying with us again!

Cute, clean and comfortable but was difficult to find
Being unfamiliar with the area, I was hoping that the cottage was closer to Asheville.
Relaxing in the evenings was a bit challenging due to a persistentl barking dog a little ways down the hillside.
It's absolutely heartbreaking to get a 3 star review, especially when it's something not at all associated with my property.
There are not any "close" neighbors so I can't imagine where this was coming from that it was an issue inside this home.
As for the location, we are so close to many Asheville attractions, however, the reality is, Asheville is a big area and we can't be close to everything. Tip for all travelers, look at the VRBO map. It's perfect to get an idea of where each property is located so you can be close to the things you want to do most. Also, this guest noted that the property was difficult to find. I honestly have never gotten that from any guest. The address is recognized in GPS's and I give detailed directions with the check-in instructions to each guest prior to arrival. There is absolutely no reason anyone should feel this place is hard to find.
I am so sorry the issue with dog noise from down the way effected your stay. We stay at this property often and have not experienced any dog barking.
Very convenient to all we wanted to see and do! Clean and stocked with just enough of everything! The bed wasn't quite big enough for us though. My husband is 6'6" and I'm not sure it was even a Queen.... but very nice place!!
The bed is definitely a queen size and it's quite comfortable. I hate to get marked off on a guest review for something that I have absolutely no control of and can not fix. Very frustrating!!
If I could give it ten stars, I would!
We loved our stay here! We drove up for a concert at The Orange Peel in Asheville. This cabin is very convenient to anything you want to do in Asheville.
It is immaculate. It has everything you need and nothing you don't. The bed is vey comfortable. Not too hard and not too soft; with a nice mattress topper. The decor is fun and tasteful and not overdone. It is quiet. There is even a white noise machine in the bedroom. There are curtains in the bedroom (hallelujiah!) that are room darkening in case you want to sleep in on your vacation. I can't say enough about it. This is the cabin I am going to stay in if I come back to Asheville.
Thanks so much for the awesome review. So glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope you will be able to come back and stay with us again.
Great place- very clean but small shower.
We loved the place itself- it was perfect even though a bit far from Asheville. The shower was very small and they asked us to go above and beyond in the cleaning department- which is silly because we are paying a cleaning fee. That's the only reason we have it a 4 instead of 5 star review!!
So sorry this guest felt the check-out requests were above and beyond as we only ask that guests start the washer and dishwasher before leaving. No "cleaning" is asked to be done. We have a cleaning company that comes into the property after each guest and they do a full cleaning.
This property is conveniently located only 2 miles from Biltmore Park on the south side of Asheville. It is convenient to downtown Asheville, the Blue Ridge Parkway and Biltmore Estate.
