ELEGANT HOMESTAY IN THE HEART OF ASHEVILLE - 4 MIN TO BILTMORE

Asheville House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

This charming home in the heart of Asheville recalls the elegance of bygone days. The ground floor has a full 1250 square feet of private space, including 2 large bedrooms, living room with sleeper sofa, kitchen and dining area.

Green Gables of Asheville, restored by the Interior Designer/Owner, features high coffered ceilings and original period details throughout. Each of the two large bedrooms has its own wood-burning fireplace and seating area. The living room, furnished with the comfortable elegance of 1920's period antiques, features a third fireplace and a large flat screen TV with cable & DVD. There are ceiling fans, beautiful antique chandeliers, and restored heart-of-pine wood floors throughout.

Green Gables is CLOSE TO EVERYTHING – so take a break from sightseeing or shopping to relax on the huge wrap around porch. Sit in the romantic swing that overlooks the gardens or dine al fresco, and watch the dozens of birds that frequent the bird feeders all day long. The porch is the place to gather on balmy summer evenings to watch the moon rise and to soak up the relaxing, candlelight atmosphere.

A CONTINENTAL BREAKFAST is included. The kitchen is always stocked with fresh fruit, juice, cereal, bread, pastries, coffee and a variety of teas - guests may serve themselves whenever they wish. Cappuccino on silver service is available, on request. Maps and activity guides are provided to help you plan your days and evenings. The home is provided with every convenience – luxury soaps and shampoo, ankle-length robes, cable TV and CD player (IPod ready), lots of board games, entertainment libraries, wireless high-speed internet, unlimited long distance telephone, a fully equipped gourmet kitchen with outdoor gas grill, and luxurious linens and pillow-top mattresses that promise a restful night’s sleep.

The famous BILTMORE ESTATE is only four minutes away, and Asheville’s restaurants, coffee houses, museums, art galleries, and live entertainment are even closer. Shoppers will love the boutiques and the charming, eclectic shops. Many antique stores and warehouses are located less than 10 minutes away – an antique hunter’s paradise with bargains galore. You can walk (15 minutes) to a great organic grocery store. The area is also great for sports enthusiasts. It's a 15-minute walk to one of the best clay tennis courts in the US and a 10-minute drive to the nearest golf course. Great biking - level bike paths near the house (including Biltmore Estate bike paths), and hilly terrain in town and on the Blue Ridge Parkway. There is even a skateboard park within walking distance.

A 7 minute walk brings you to the River Arts District with sidewalk cafes and more than 135 artists’ studios, where some of the best art in America is produced. Other nearby activities include spas, YWCA (10 minute walk), live music & dancing (17 minute walk), yoga (including Bikram Yoga), farmers markets, and University of North Carolina activities – and much, much more. This elegant and luxurious vacation homestay is a place to experience a romantic getaway that you will remember always.

Green Gables is pet friendly and child friendly. Well-behaved dogs will be considered (pet fee applies.) There is a large fenced dog park nearby. The veranda and front yard are fenced and gated for the security of small children and pets. Low-rise beds are available for small children, as well as playpens, bassinets, baby swings and baby baths. Everything folds away for daytime storage in the roomy walk-in closet. The elegant and luxurious designer fabrics are all washable, pillows and cushions are slip-covered. The sturdy antique furniture has been selected to withstand use. Excellent facilities for day care and summer camp programs are located nearby.

Cozy, beautiful home with everything we wanted!

Our sons live in Asheville, and we had wanted to stay there for Christmas for a couple of years. The one non-negotiable amenity was a fireplace---Green Gables has 3! The home is lovely, and our hostess Georgia even more so. When she discovered a few hours before our arrival that we would be celebrating Christmas the next day, she redecorated the house with wreaths and a small lighted tree, set out wine and cookies, and addressed every member of our party by name in a welcome note. We were very impressed with the level of attention she gives her guests, personally taking care of all the details from booking to follow-up emails.
The house is cozy and comfortable, with an old-fashioned soaking tub, gas range, large-screen TV, electronics, internet access, wonderful beds...just like home, only better! We had fun cooking in the well-equipped kitchen with goodies we bought at the local food co-op. The house is close to downtown, and in better weather we could easily walk to many places we like to go in Asheville.
We visited the Biltmore Estate, the Southern Craft Guild shop, rode on the Blueridge Parkway, and of course had chocolate extravagance at the French Broad Chocolate Lounge. Doc Chey's restaurant on Biltmore Street provided perfect chicken soup for our son who was under the weather. (It was so good, we revisited the next day for lunch.) Georgia provides a large book with information on all these, which helped us plan our days.
We have stayed for shorter periods of time in Asheville over the past few years, always in hotels. Our week at Green Gables has cured us of that, and we will stay in our new "home in the mountains" whenever we can in the future!

My husband and I just left Green Gables and are ready to come back. This house has it all; comfortable rooms, great kitchen, beautiful porch, room to play ball with the dog, and close to downtown.
The house has all the modern amenities but is not cold. It is a home.
I highly recommend visiting Green Gables!

My husband, our 20 and 17 year old daughters, and I stayed at Green Gables for two nights and had a wonderful, restful time. Georgia welcomed us with a lovely bottle of wine, fresh fruit and cookies, and milk, bread, coffee, and other breakfast fixings. The place was immaculate, comfortable, and stocked with everything from a full kitchen to ample towels in the bath (also, lots of hooks all over which I really appreciated -- a rare and much-appreciated detail!). Green Gables is also close to everything, so we could spend our time enjoying Asheville instead of driving back and forth. We enjoyed our all-too-brief time there and hope to return before too long.

Georgia, Thank you so much for offering your house as a getaway – it is amazing! One of my best friends and I stayed here with our husbands for a dear friend’s wedding. My friend and I do not live close and so this was a time to re-kindle our friendship. This house is absolutely perfect for a vacation! Thank you for the cookies and the wine – both were such nice and welcoming touches. Asheville is definitely going to be a fond memory for all of us. Thank you again!
