About Stephen Lutz

Stephen & Beth have lived in Asheville since 1982 so we know the area well. We have four grown children, love to travel, but also love to keep exploring our home town. We enjoy meeting new people and our guests.

Stephen Lutz purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Stephen Lutz chose Asheville

If you want to be close to downtown and the Biltmore Estate but don't want the hassle of a parking deck, our location is about as good as it gets.

What makes this apartment unique

A lot of love went into the building of Craftsman Cottage, from the beautiful custom woodwork to the deck overlooking the garden. We love it when guests take time to explore the grounds of our 1914 era Craftsman home.

Beautiful Place to Stay--Great Location

  • 5 of 5
This was a wonderful place to stay for our trip to Asheville. We love Craftsman architecture, and were delighted at the great attention to craftsman detail and design. Really nice.

The location was perfect too. Kenilworth is a beautiful, quiet neighborhood full of gorgeous old craftsman homes/mansions, but it is just down the hill to the Biltmore Estate and downtown Asheville, where most of our weekend was spent.

The owners, who live next door, are fun people with great ideas for restaurants and things to do. Tupelo Honey is a great place to eat that they told us about. They had a complimentary bottle of wine waiting on us when we arrived, which we enjoyed on the deck of the cottage, which is particularly lovely. It has vines with blooming roses growing along the rail of the deck with little lights interspersed, which makes it look and smell wonderful at night. This was a great place to stay, and we can’t wait to go back!

Absolutely beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5
Phil and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves in this stunning cottage. It is even nicer than the pictures. It has 2 bathrooms and is very roomy and quiet. It is in a fantastic neighborhood and fairly close to downtown Asheville. It is also very close to the Biltmore Estate. We also enjoyed walking around with Stephen's father, who showed us all around the gardens. He was so sweet. We plan on coming back in the future and staying here again!!

Great Stay!

Enjoyed our stay at this property. Location was central to everything. Owners very nice. Only comment is that it needs more light in the bedroom to read at night. Would recommend for a couple a perfect location.

As comfortable as home

  • 5 of 5
This place is even nicer than we imagined! It is everything vrbo should be. Very comfortable, great ambience (nice garden views, great patio), very professional, good technology (tv, wifi, fridge), quality linens, and great neighborhood location (we rented in mountains before and this is closer to downtown but yet still a secluded feel). High class all the way with nice touches. The owners even left a bottle of wine. We'll be back! We particularly enjoyed that it was petfriendly.

Location is great--just a few minutes from downtown. We visit Asheville a few times a year and had not seen this neighborhood before. It is convenient to both restaurants downtown and Biltmore. The place was very clean--probably the cleanest rental we've ever stayed in--and we found it a restful place to return to at the end of the day. There is very nice, recently opened natural food store called Katuah Market that is a short drive away in Biltmore Village--perfect place to stock up on groceries or grab a meal. One note about the rental--not a negative but just a "be aware"--as another reviewer wrote, the shower unit is small; it may not accommodate someone of large girth.
