My husband and I were choosing between a few places in Asheville and boy did we pick the best one by staying here! Annie and Joe are the most gracious hosts we've ever had with VRBO. They will treat you like family if you'd like. The cottage is as perfect as the pictures show. Their attention to detail is like no other. The quaint cottage greets you with a big smiling facade and once inside the fresh flowers, pristine whiteness, and well planned mood lighting immediately sets your mind at ease. The front screen door is even finely tuned as to not slam shut, so much serenity in such easily overlooked details. The kitchen is, as far as I'm concerned, everyone's dream kitchen. There was not a need for anything as we cooked at least one meal a day here. Trader Joes, Greenlife, and other grocery stores are just down the road. The cottage is so close to great restaurants like Luella's BBQ, Plant, Homegrown, Whit's Custard (almond joy the fave flavor) and Asheville Brewing Co within walking distance. There are miles of greenway paths for walking/running a block off the cottage road. The University of North Carolina is a five min walk away and their botanical garden is great for morning strolls. The downtown area is just a 5 min drive too. Most days we drove a short 10-15 mins to get onto the Blue Ridge Parkway north or south of Asheville and covered 25-50 miles each day with plenty of time to do 3-6 miles of waterfall hiking, and then come back to the cottage to shower and head out for dinner.
We could not have asked for a more perfect week!
