About Janis Kaye

I am Janis and for many years, prior to my husband’s passing, it was our goal to own and operate a guest cottage in beautiful Asheville, NC. I am fulfilling this dream as he would have wanted. My love of nature and the beauty to be found in Asheville is a constant source of discovery for me and as my eyes are opened to the beauty that surrounds the cottage, it excites me to be able to offer visitors first hand information on the endless sites in store for them. I am here to make your trip a memorable one and to offer everything I can to help you achieve that. “Your Complete Satisfaction is my #1 Goal!”

Janis Kaye purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Janis Kaye chose Asheville

I actually didn’t choose Asheville but rather married into it so to speak. My husband owned a home in Asheville and lived in it for a short time off and on. When we married we moved to Orlando, FL and the house remained unoccupied except for an occasional renter. In 2000 we decided to completely restore the home and after renting it for a few years we decided to sell our home in Orlando and relocate full time to the property in Asheville, a move we never regretted. As luck would have it the home next door to us was for sale and we viewed that as the perfect opportunity to be able to offer a very special “home away from home” for our guests. We bought it and completely refurbished it. Living next door affords me the ability to quickly and efficiently meet all the needs of my guests. My dream has come true so why not come to beautiful Asheville and let me help make your stay one that you will fondly remember.

What makes this cottage unique

It's on a very short dead end street with very few neighbors so no busy road so it has the country feel but is within the city limits and close to everything. Biltmore Village, Estates, Downtown Asheville, Antiquing and other great shopping, Great Restaurants, About 6 minutes to the Blue Ridge Parkway and Mall just to name a few.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Janis,



We had a fantastic trip! The house is just perfect. The Christmas tree and other decorations added a special touch. This was our 2nd annual trip to Asheville to hunt for the perfect Frasier fir trees! You were an outstanding hostess to us. We also appreciated the tips on things to do and places to go. We’re sad to leave.



Hopefully we will return next year.



Thanks Again,



Linley, Broc, Krista and Brad

Comfortable, Clean and a Great Location!

  • 5 of 5
This cottage was the perfect place to stay! This was my first trip to Asheville and I am looking forward to going back. The cottage was centrally located to everything. Janis has great information and directions for things to do plus she was so kind to take the time to personally see what we wanted to do and then gave us more specifics for those things. We had a great time going to The Biltmore, hiking to various falls etc. We even had a fun trip to Mount Mitchell to see what it looked like from the highest elevation east of the Mississippi. The only problem was that some storm clouds blew in and when we got to the top we could barely see 5 feet in front of us! It was still an awesome experience though. To wrap it up, the cottage was a wonderful place to stay, it was so clean and comfortable. Janis is a great host, my security deposit was returned super fast. All perfect and I can't wait to go back since there is so much more to see and do. Thanks Janis!

Better Than Expected

  • 5 of 5
What a cute, clean house we chose to be our home base for a 4 day vacation to Asheville. Janis gave us a quick summary of the places to see; places to hike; and places to eat. Her charming house is in a convenient location close to the Biltmore, restaurants, shopping, the downtown area, and the Blue Ridge Parkway. Janis provided us with tips on the areas we wanted to explore, and her directions are accurate! We visited the Biltmore (spaced it in parts of 2 days); we hiked the Triple, High and Bridal Veils Falls in one day! Whew! We hiked on the Blue Ridge parkway trails..Graveyard Fields, etc. We sampled 3 breweries...L.A.B., A.B.C and the Wicked Weed, and went to Pack's Tavern. On our last morning we rode to Mt Mitchell Park and hiked to the top of Mt. Mitchell!
We plan on returning for another vacation to Asheville........... However, we will have additional gear including raincoats and hiking boots! Somehow, we managed to dodge the raindrops at the right times. Thanks for the hospitality!

Cozy and convenient

  • 5 of 5
This is truly a home away from home. Janis provides all the comforts and conveniences that one would find in their own home. Not to mention, Janis is a wonderful host as she provides information and directions to restaurants, shopping and any outdoor activity you could possibly think of. Very close to downtown Asheville and major routes. I will definitely make return arrangements to Janis' cottage upon my next trip to Asheville.

Great stay, again

  • 5 of 5
Our second stay at Janis' cottage almost felt like returning home. It's comfortable, convenient, clean and quiet, and Janis will fill you in on the best places to visit and see. Asheville has some great restaurants, but when you don't feel like another big, expensive meal, you'll find the kitchen fully equipped for almost anything you want to cook. If you like craft beer, there are three breweries (Highland, Catawba and French Broad) within a 3-4 minute drive. Very relaxing and peaceful.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Janis,

We have had a wonderful vacation, your cottage is lovely. Asheville has proved to be a great choice for us. There’s a lot to do, that’s for sure, and the cottage is in an ideal location.

The hikes you suggested were perfect especially. We enjoyed Catawba Falls, Moore Cove Falls. Triple Falls and Chimney Rock. We did take the steps at Chimney Rock which was an adventure and had amazing views. One town that we really like was Black Mountain. We could easily move there!

I love to go antiquing so was happy to find so many stores in the area. The ladies at Bryant antiques were very nice and quite funny. We loved Screen Door and The Tobacco Barn!

If you are a fan of baseball we had a great experience watching The Asheville Tourists. It was a fun and inexpensive evening and would be great to take kids to.

Your hospitality was amazing and the cottage was the best equipped we have seen!! You have thought of everything that anyone would need on vacation and more.

We both go back refreshed which is what we hoped for. I would be happy to recommend this property to anyone.

Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5
Your cottage is lovely! Fully stocked kitchen and all the comforts of home.
We had the most adventurous time exploring Asheville and surrounding attractions. Chimney Rock was fun, the many waterfalls endless and the hiking trails went forever.
The Biltmore was so close and a fantastic place to visit more than once.
We had an awesome time and wish we could have stayed longer. We were just starting to get cozy and familiar. We had a great time and hope to return!
Thank you for being so helpful and giving us good ideas and suggestions.
You are the hostess with the mostest!

Car: recommended

My home is located less than 1 mile from the Biltmore Village and The Biltmore Estates and less than 3 miles from Downtown Asheville. It is on a very short (couple hundred yards) quiet dead end street in a small neighborhood with lots of trees and flowers. It's less than 10 minutes to the Blue Ridge Parkway (Named one of the top ten most beautiful scenic highways in the US) that takes you to Mount Mitchell, (highest point east of the Mississippi River) Linville Falls, Craggie Gardens, Mount Pisgah, Folk Art Center, NC Arboretum just to name a few. If you enjoy the outdoors, my home is conveniently located to countless outdoor activities from white water rafting, canoeing, hiking, mountain biking, climbing, horse back riding, to golfing and fishing just to name a few.
