About the property

2 bedrooms with queen beds, 1 stunning bath, acre pet approved fenced yard

The Hydrangea House is a unique and beautiful space full of artistic charm. The home is situated close to restaurants, grocery, shopping, and outdoor activities such as hiking, rafting, tubing, mountain biking, skiing and zip lining. It's an easy 15 minute drive to downtown Asheville. You’ll love the home for it's unique ambiance, mosaic tile work, private outdoor space, comfort, spaciousness and coziness that's just off the beaten path. It's unusual to find a home so private yet so convenient to Asheville.

I lived on this property in the Hydrangea House for 12 years and vacation rented the Wisteria Cottage, another vacation rental on the property (see listing #31846). I loved living here and am happy to be able to now offer the Hydrangea House as a vacation rental.

The House is truly unique. Stone fireplace newly outfitted with easy to use gas logs, a bright open sun room and warm and inviting kitchen/living room area. The bedrooms are cozy with super comfortable bedding and brand new memory foam beds, and views of the surrounding trees and mountains. Enjoy warming your toes by the outdoor fire pit on the stone patio surrounded by blooming Hydrangea (in season!).

Guests of the Hydrangea House enjoy one level living on the first floor. The lower level is used as a storage area and includes the laundry room. Guests have the full use of the patio and private 3/4 acre fenced yard out the sun room door for pet safety and your convenience. Great WiFi will keep you connected, if you so choose. Please be aware that small dogs could get out in places and the limit is 2 well-mannered dogs.

Your pups are welcome to join you on vacation! There are a few easy to follow rules regarding dogs such as picking up after your pet and using sheets (provided) to cover bedding should your dog(s) sleep with you in the bed. Dogs are not allowed to be left out in the fenced yard while you are away from the property. Crating is not mandatory but is always welcome. It is the expectation that guests will only bring dogs that are good with travel and new places, and do not suffer from extreme separation anxiety if you will be away for any length of time. Guests will be responsible for damage to the home from pets.

I do not live on the property but am around many times during the week for yard maintenance, cleaning the next door Cottage, and to check in with guests. You'll have your privacy but I am only a short distance away on the East side of Asheville, and available by phone/text should you have any questions.

Weaverville is a small community just North of Asheville. We have a beautiful town center with delicious restaurants, art stores and a couple of parks. Please visit Weaverville's website for information on the town: The House is in a quiet, lovely location, at the end of a long driveway that takes you well off the main road.

It's super easy to get to anywhere you want to go in the area as the House is located less than one mile from I-26 and 15 minutes from Asheville. Quiet and convenient, a rare combination!

Everyone is welcome at Hydrangea House, I am lifestyle friendly.

About Jayne Abbot

I have made Asheville my home since 1995 and would never live anyplace else! I'm an avid outdoorsy type person enjoying hikes in the woods, kayaking, camping, wildflowers and many beautiful sunsets. In 2003 I purchased this property and lived in the Hydrangea House until 2015. Also on the property is the Wisteria Cottage (VRBO listing #31846) which I have been renting mostly as a vacation, occasionally as a long term rental, since I purchased the property. I also ran a small dog daycare/boarding/training business out of a 3rd building on the property during these years. I closed that business in 2015 and moved to the Riceville area (East Asheville) with my then fiancé now husband, Stan. When I moved, I didn't want to sell my home so started with a long-term renter and when he moved out, decided to create my second vacation rental home the Hydrangea House. I began renting it in October 2016. It's very rewarding to provide such a unique and beautiful space for vacationers to the NC mountains.

I also love dogs! My other job is organizing and producing dog agility events in NC and TN.

Jayne Abbot purchased this house in 2003

Why Jayne Abbot chose Weaverville

I chose to purchase this property back in 2003 because I was drawn to it's unique and beautiful one of a kind mosaic artwork, the layout of the home, and the expansive outdoor space. The beautiful, quiet, peaceful yet very convenient location cinched the deal. I loved living on the property for 12 years and running a small successful dog daycare/boarding business, as well as managing the cottage as a vacation rental. I am enjoying opening up the Hydrangea House to vacationers as well!

the home was better than the listing stated.

  • 5 of 5

First off the home was exceptionally clean when we arrived, check in was simple and it was very easy to find. The beds were super comfortable and hit the spot after a 17 hour drive. The kitchen was stocked well making our meal planning cost effective and easy. The owner was prompt and professional with all communication. The small touches like a few cold beers and some good coffee ready to brew were very thoughtful. The whole family loved this house and we will cherish the memories made here. lastly, the yard was perfect for our dog!

Perfect place to visit the city but escape to home

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family getaway! Conveniently located but feels away from it all. The space is warm and welcoming, inside and out. You'll find everything you need in the kitchen, well stocked with the basics. We really enjoyed relaxing by the fire pit on the patio. The fenced-in yard is great for fur babies! Jayne is wonderful - providing everything you need from information about the house and local favorites in the area to dog treats :-) There is even a white noise machine to help you sleep while away from home! We enjoyed that so much that we'll probably buy one. It was great! Thank you, Jayne, for providing a wonderful space and all of the extras to make it feel like home. This was truly one of our top VRBO experiences!

Perfect spot to kick back and relax

  • 4 of 5

This property was just what I was hoping for...serene, beautifully scenic, and comfortable. Two adults and two beagles stayed here. There was plenty of room for all of us. Even though it was raining on and off for the duration of our visit, everyone enjoyed the outdoor space when the sun decided to peek through. I've rented VRBO/HomeAway for a long time and it was quite a treat to have a fenced in back yard and a fully functional kitchen with all the tools and appliances for cooking. I loved this sweet little house.
