Overview

Asheville House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4, 30 day minimum

This cozy 1905 Carriage House was renovated over the last 20 years to function as a modern home while retaining historic integrity and charm (the main house burned down in the 70's). This was my architectural design studio while I lived in the cottage next door, during the construction of my new home on the front part of the property about 6 years ago (featured in Fall 2010 Fine Homebuilding magazine).

Accessed by a quiet old carriage alley, within 10 min walk of our vibrant downtown and UNCA, and convenient to the I240, in the middle of a historic neighborhood of lovingly restored homes and B&B's.

Wood floors and windows throughout, snug bathroom with clawfoot tub/shower, tastefully furnished, W/D, fully equipped kitchen (incl utensils, pots/pans, gas cooktop, microwave, etc), but no DW, two sets of linens, comforters, etc.,CATV, wireless internet, and all utilities included.

The House is on two levels, with the large master bedroom on the lower level (unfinished storage bay is adjacent), with a door to the covered stone patio. Other rooms are upstairs, spilling out to a large elevated deck tucked under a mature tree canopy, surrounded by lush landscaping.

The Carriage House is adjacent to my 1940 rental cottage.

30 day minimum, unless gaps between reservations allow shorter stay.

Also within 10 min walk to Wholefoods grocery, several neighborhood restaurants, parks, a historic cemetery, YMCA, etc. Perfect place to live while relocating.

Fantastic Montford perch, cozy and central!

  • 5 of 5
We give this rental unit our highest, enthusiastic recommendation. Easily walkable to downtown Asheville, and with two very different but equally satisfying eateries a block away, the Carriage House is an ideal landing spot from which to sample and immerse yourself in Asheville culture. UNC-Asheville is less than a mile away as well, as are some very fine grocery stores. The house is comfortable and the owners have it well-equipped for short- or long-term visits, If you're bringing work with you, the location itself is a quiet respite, even though minutes from "the scene." Montford is a pleasure to explore on foot, and the neighborhood is friendly -- we always felt safe anytime of day or night. Enjoy!

Charming Carriage House with Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5
The Carriage House was absolutely perfect! My husband and I, along with our two children, stayed for the month of July. The listing description is very accurate. The kitchen is well-equipped with everything you need to cook meals and there are plenty of extra towels and linens. It is also very clean and tastefully decorated. Michael is a very kind and accommodating landlord. The location is the best! We walked downtown often even with our 5 and 6 year old! Very, very convenient location to downtown Asheville yet with privacy! We would definitely stay here again and hope to stay here again in the future! We would recommend the Carriage House to anyone looking for a nice, clean house to rent close to downtown! Loved it!

Great home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
We spent the month of March in Michael's wonderful carriage house. It felt like home for us and we wanted for nothing. The description of the house was perfect and it was all buffed and polished for our arrival. The location is wonderful. Every morning we walked to a neighborhood convenience store for a newspaper. We also walked into downtown Asheville frequently for dinners, lunches, shopping, the symphony and the Home and Garden Show. A large grocery store, Blockbuster video, the University of NC, the Botanic Gardens and any other amenity is only a 5-10 minute car ride away. Michael was a gracious host and helpful with our questions about the area. Even our cat Bella felt right at home! We highly recommend this facility.

Great House, Great Location...

  • 5 of 5
The Carriage House was absolutely wonderful. We truly enjoyed our stay at Michael's property and would stay again if ever we needed to. We used the home for the month of February while we transitioned into the city of Asheville. The location was excellent as we were able to walk into town and walk down to the grocery store. A car was almost unnecessary! I can only imagine the home in the spring as the trees turn green and the grill gets going! Whomever stays next, enjoy!

Wonderful Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I had a wonderful month-long stay here. The cottage was outfitted perfectly. We had everything we needed in the kitchen to cook great meals. We also had plenty of good-quality towels, bed linens, and blankets. I, especially, appreciated the washer/dryer combo (excellent for an extended stay). The location is great, too -- we walked downtown all the time as well as to a great grocery store. Michael was an excellent landlord -- very responsive when we had questions about anything. Highly recommended!
