Anne and Joe’s small cottage, located one mile north of the downtown core of Asheville, was a wonderful location for our 10-day visit to the area. The layout is comfortable, with an L-shaped living/sleeping/dining area and a large bathroom (with a great shower, by the way). The cottage was exceptionally clean and well-tended with tasteful colors and decor throughout. The bed was very comfortable, and it was a pleasure to wake up each day in the wooded surroundings listening to the local birds. Our hosts were most accommodating, with excellent knowledge of the local area. Anne even made sure that there were fresh flowers in the room throughout our stay. It seemed that they were very attuned to our personalities and gave us just the amount of attention that was comfortable without being overbearing or leaving us feeling ignored. For a peaceful couples getaway location, I highly recommend The Cottage in Asheville.
