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

Great Cottage, Better Hostess

Thank you so much for this lovely cottage. You made it feel like a home away from home! Both you and you're cottage are absolutely delightful! Can't say enough great things about this place! We loved the brownies!

Best Host in a Lovely Asheville Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We really really enjoyed our stay in your lovely cottage! You were by far the best host we have ever had and it was a great vacation. It was so nice of you to cook food for us when we got snowed in as well as put salt on the walkway while the snow was coming down so we would not slip and fall! The advice and tips/tricks you gave us proved to be very helpful and we will always recommend the audio tour with headphones! Your property is so close to everything which made sightseeing a breeze especially with your advise. We will be back to see you very soon! Although Asheville is beautiful along with your cozy cottage, your hospitality and kindness made our trip to Asheville so wonderful!

Please keep in touch and thank you for letting us share your cottage!

Pristine Cottage and Gracious Host

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect. It was super clean and everything we needed was provided for us. It definitely felt like a home away from home. My family has already decided that the next time we visit Asheville we are staying here again. Although we did not get to meet Janis, we still developed a relationship with her on the phone and through emails. She was very accommodating and we could not have asked for a nicer host.

Thank you again!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

It's not uncommon to feel some anxiety toward staying in another's house for your vacation, not knowing what to expect and whether or not you will be completely satisfied, but worry not. Janis' cottage was wonderful, just like Janis herself. A true Southern lady with spunk and class! Not only did we find a nice place to return to next time we're in AVL, but found someone we could easily become friends with as well. And you couldn't ask for a swifter return of your deposit. It almost beat us back home! We thoroughly enjoyed our Thanksgiving week vacation. Now, where is that cork screw?!!

You can't go wrong here!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect! Location is close to everything, but you feel like you're in the country. Very close (w/i 2 miles) to Biltmore Estate and Biltmore Village. One added plus, Janis can get tickets for the Biltmore. She was able to get us tickets for the Christmas night-time tour on short notice. Thank you!

Cottage is perfectly furnished and comfortable. The hostess - Janis - is the consummate hostess with the mostest! :)

We will definitely return again.

Thank you Janis!!

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.
