IN THE HEART OF DOWNTOWN: THE COZY COTTAGE ON CHURCH STREET

Asheville Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 5-8)

The Cozy Cottage on Church Street is an 'Architectural Jewel' nestled amongst the few historical homes that line this quiet boulevard. Situated in the heart of downtown Asheville, a mere 3 blocks from the very center of downtown, all the activities and excitement of downtown are only a short walk away.

This 100 year old historical cottage has been lovingly restored in 2005 and is equipped with all the amenities of modern living yet keeping the ambience of yesteryear. All new plumbing, electrical, HVAC, roofing it is in perfect shape. The heart of pine wooden floors, stair railings and pocket doors are original to the house and have been beautifully refinished. Whether you have a group of friends, or just your family, this is the downtown home that offers everything you may need to build wonderful memories. The kitchen is fully functional if you prefer to eat in and relax in the warmth of the adjoining dining room. The living room offers a relaxing environment for reading, movies, games or just visiting with your friends and family. The house has three TV's each with a DVD player and two with VCR. We have Direct TV with the NFL and Movie Package. We offer a rare bonus for downtown with plenty of paved parking for you & your entourage behind our home.

We are only a short 5 minute drive to the Biltmore Estate and many other highly sought after local attractions. The Biltmore Estate, built by George Vanderbilt, is the largest privately owned home in America. The Estate is world famous for replanting their splendid gardens each season. They own one of the most amazing private art collections in the world, their winery and culinary tantalizing restaurants are highly acclaimed. If visiting Asheville in December a visit to the 'Christmas at Biltmore Estate' is a must to experience. The Grove Park Inn has an amazing 'One of a Kind Nationwide Gingerbread Exhibition & Competition' held every December and the Grove Park's enormous double stone fireplaces are to be enjoyed with a steaming cup of hot chocolate. (I promise it is an unforgettable experience!!) We have made both of these events our annual Christmas traditions since discovering Asheville in 2003. The Grove Park Inn has one of the finest spas in the world and is an astonishing stone structure built at the turn of the century. We are within walking distance to the newly redesigned Pack Square Plaza that enjoys outdoor concerts and festivals throughout the seasons. Downtown is full of wonderful diverse restaurants, unique boutique shopping, award winning art galleries, quaint grocery stores, museums, theaters, architecturally delightful buildings, and interesting art sculptures. All of this and much more are just minutes from our lovely cottage enjoyed by foot.

Hiking, mountain biking, canoeing, rafting, winter skiing, snow boarding and motoring the Blue Ridge Parkway at any season is a delight. Explore and enjoy Asheville to fully experience why it is rated one of top tourist destinations. We look forward to seeing you soon.

We love Asheville & have been visiting for many years! We decided to purchase a 'vacation' home and want to share this beautiful cottage with others interested in the beauty and splendor of the mountains and the vibrant lifestyle of being located in Downtown Asheville.

Terri & Carlos purchased this cottage in 2004

Love Asheville & love the downtown! We live in Charleston, but now consider Asheville our 2nd home, and come back as often as possible. We love the beauty and climate of the mountains, and the eclectic and vibrant lifestyle that is Asheville.

The Cozy Cottage is literally right in the heart of it all! You are staying 'downtown' in the middle of all the excitement, yet just a couple blocks off Pack Square, the heart of downtown, on a quiet, well manicured one-way street. You get to experience everything that Asheville has to offer, then retire to the comforts of your quiet & welcoming cottage.

We were impressed and delighted with this house! Beautiful craftsman style house, very tastefully and artistically decorated. You can tell much care has gone into keeping the historic integrity of this home. We were within walking distance of downtown. It was a very quiet neighborhood, great parking. Very large bedrooms. We highly recommend this property.

The house is very well-kept, spacious and inviting. Our group attended a show at the Orange Peel over the weekend and it was a short 5 minute walk. The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms were clean, and the porch was perfect for lounging in the sunshine! Downtown is also a very close walk and we were able to enjoy food and shopping close by. Once we arrived, we did not get in our car until it was time to leave. I would definitely recommend this house!

Thanksgiving Holiday

My husband and I and one adult daughter and 2 granddaughters spent a week at the beautifully decorated cottage on Church Street! We loved every day of it, and was surprised by 1.5" of snow on Thanksgiving Day. The grandchildren had their personal space to play and we all enjoyed some of the old movies that were there on DVD and VHS. This lovely cottage is located within walking distance of all the wonderful downtown shops and restaurants and that is what we did, we walked every day into town and shopped! We enjoyed the Kress Emporium (lots of stores in there), Cosmic Vision, Instant Karma, Garage 34, Write On, and numerous boutiques! Of course had to taste chocolates at French Broad Chocolate Co. We ate a couple of meals at Barley's and Pack's Tavern 20 (all within walking distance). We drove to the Biltmore House, Winery and Village Shops, spent a full day there, which was beautifully decorated for Christmas. We drove to The Grove Park Inn and spent an evening there, drinking Hot Chocolate while touring the Inn and the awesome Gingerbread Exhibit. Upon arrival, we stopped at the Farmer's Market and Trader Joe's, both very close to the cottage. The cottage is clean and well equipped for families, the kitchen had everything we needed (excluding food) ha ha. We liked the convenience of town, the neighborhood was quiet and everyday there were joggers and runners passing by, some with their dogs. We would love to visit again in the Spring/Summer. We highly recommend that if you are visiting Asheville, to stay at the Cozy Cottage!

Great house in a great location!!

WE had a great time at The Cozy Cottage! The house is beautiful! We loved the "old" feel and appreciated the new aspect of it too! The stairs are beautiful! It was great to be able to walk places downtown. We felt comfortable walking downtown and putting our name on a waiting list at a restaurant and then having our teenage kids walk up to meet us when the table was about ready. It was a lovely neighborhood with access to great restaurants and shopping. We went to the Biltmore house one day and it was very easy to get there. We also enjoyed the Grove Park Inn's Gingerbread houses. We went out to eat most of the nights we were in Asheville, but got takeout pizza one night. That night may have been the most fun. All seven of us (my sister and her family came with us) played such fun games in the Cozy Cottage living room! Perfect for a nice bonding with teenagers while having a great time place! I spoke with Terri several times on the phone as though we were old friends. She is lovely and very accommodating! I hope to meet her one day when we can possibly rent her house in Charleston! We will be back! Thank you!
