About the property

Large art-filled apartment in West Asheville has a comfortable and spacious bedroom, sitting/TV room, kitchenette and bath with private entrance and separate keyless entrance. The suite occupies the entire downstairs of our home.

Walking distance to cool Haywood Road and ten minutes to historic Asheville's great restaurants, breweries, art galleries and the Biltmore Estate.

Our place sits on an acre of land at the end of a quiet street with a large beautiful yard that you are welcome to enjoy. Smith Mill Creek runs for 1000 feet along it's edge and we have forest at both ends. Yet you are only 0.5 mi. from a local brewery and in easy walking distance to many of the locals favorite haunts on Haywood Road in West Asheville. You have a private entrance, driveway parking, while enjoying close proximity to the wonderful restaurants, breweries, scenic views and outdoor adventures that make Asheville such a unique and cherished destination.

Your space is private, but you are welcome to use other aspects of our property as well. It is a nice place to walk, practice chipping your golf ball or throw a frisbee. You may use our corn hole boards when the weather permits. There are two fire pits on our property for relaxation and conversation. One is located in our pergola. The larger fire pit is in our back yard. At night you may enjoy lounging on our deck with the tiki torches lit.

The upstairs is our living space. We are very social and may invite you up for a visit, but we also will respect your privacy and only enter your space when invited or needed.

We have a Labrador Retriever. This big beauty will bark at you until he meets you then is gentle as a lamb. We keep him upstairs. We do not allow him to venture into the apartment at all.

The Neighborhood:

West Asheville has been in a renaissance for the last fifteen years. It is now one of the most desirable neighborhoods to live in in all of Asheville. It is home to three breweries, two of the best breakfast places that you will find anywhere, as well as many other great restaurants, stores, pubs and music venues. The street is mostly level, so it's a great place to just stroll around and enjoy.

The City of Asheville proper is on as many top ten lists as any city in the country. Surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains, Asheville has been a tourist getaway for over a hundred years - just because of the scenery. But this small city is far more than that. It is a bastion of great art, culture, and friendly people and now is a leader in craft beer! And of course we have the Biltmore Estate which draws visitors from all over the world.

Long weekend stay while we looked at property

  • 4 of 5

Funky, hip apartment. We enjoyed finding all the seemingly endless pieces of artwork. Many interesting art books & magazines. Usually, I don't care for "pod" coffee but the dark roast pods were delicious. Small bathroom but plenty of hot water and super water pressure. Bed was comfy. The extra room with futon and TV was perfect for my daughter and 6 year old grandson. Plenty of games for kids and a huge, safe backyard. Short drive to downtown Asheville and easy access to grocery and pharmacy. Mark was extremely accommodating and very friendly.

Clean and comfortable stay!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was comfortable and clean. We were in town for a weekend training and it was perfect for our needs. The owners gave us privacy and took care of us if anything arose. We look forward to our next trip to Asheville.

Asheville is home to many artists and crafts folk as well, hosting the Southern Highland Craft Fair twice annually. Just a short drive away is the Blue Ridge Parkway and access to great hiking, white water rafting, floating the river, mountain biking and 4000 miles of world class fly fishing streams.
