Location is a huge plus

Description accurate. Photos accurate. Property very clean. Simple and attractive furnishings. Close to everything. The driveway is narrow, parking is tight and should not be attempted by anyone pulling a boat, trailer or camper (or driving a conversion van). Steps up to the cabin are not good for anyone with difficulty climbing big rocks to get in to the house, but charming and fun for able-bodied individuals. Cabin is cozy for 2 adults and 2 teens who get along, too cozy for 6 adults (our opinion). Bathroom small and in need of some upkeep. House next door could be too close for comfort if a large group was staying there. For our stay, all was quiet and the proximity to downtown trumped everything. We got the birds, the trees, the sunset, the quick drive into town and a chance to fix many of our own meals. Our Check-out responsibilities were minimal and very reasonable. We would stay here again if we came back to Asheville.
We got several meals off the salad and hot bar at GreenLife (Whole Foods) and enjoyed both the Green Sage and the West End Bakery for lunches. Get a good city map from AAA so that you can find things more easily if you plan to explore the town. The Battery Park Book Exchange and Champagne Bar in the Grove Arcade is a very unique experience that could be enjoyed by a variety of people (and dogs). A great town for bibliophiles and foodies. Every shopkeeper that we met was very polite, friendly, and enthusiastic about their merchandise.
