The Perfect Asheville Rental ... Simply Enchanting
Submitted: September 15, 2011
Stayed: July 2011
This great house has everything I hoped for from my Asheville experience: comfortable accommodations, artistic decor, a helpful owner, and close to everything downtown.
First, the house itself is simply wonderful. The photos barely do the Enchanted Cottage justice. The bedrooms are super-comfortable, with large cozy beds, beautiful wooden dressers, individual air-conditioners, and soothing lighting.
The living room is wonderful and the kitchen has all the amenities one could want. Though we didn't do a lot of lounging around or cooking (since there's so much to see and the house is close to ALL of downtown Asheville's restaurants) there was everything for our relaxation and morning cooking after a quick trip to GreenLife. There is a lovely deck overlooking the backyard and garden where we enjoyed hanging out when we were home. And some of the garden's vegetables found their way into our salads.
Kelly, the owner, was always a text away if we had questions or needed some local information. Her recommendations were absolutely invaluable in finding all of the local flavor and nooks that might have otherwise gone unnoticed.
We had a car for a few days and it allowed us to visit some of the locations just outside of downtown Asheville, but after a few days it was clear that we wouldn't need a car for much. Kelly's Enchanted Cottage is perfectly located.
GreenLife is a minute walk, Dobra Tea or Dripolator Coffee is two minutes away, Table and The Laughing Seed are just a little farther, and the French Broad Chocolate Lounge (not to be missed) is the furthest across town at just seven minutes walk. Everything is nearby. You could spend a entire week downtown and never need a car at this wonderful home.
If Asheville is your destination, this rental is the perfect place. Don't risk being too far away from all of downtown's wonders. Set in a cozy and quiet neighborhood, right next to everything, the Enchanted Cottage is just what you need for a delightful stay in Asheville.
