Overview

Asheville Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 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 2 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 - our cottage 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. If you prefer to eat in and relax in the warmth of the adjoining dining room, enjoy our fully functional kitchen. The living room offers a cozy environment for reading, movies, games or just visiting with your friends and family. The house has three TVs each with a DVD player and one with a VCR (we have Direct TV). 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 and 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. 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 and coffee shops, unique boutique shopping, award winning art galleries, quaint grocery stores, museums, theaters, architecturally delightful buildings and historically significant monuments and landmarks. 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.

About Terri & Carl

We love Asheville & have been visiting for many years! Eventually, we decided to purchase a 'vacation' home which we have lovingly restored and furnished. We are delighted to share this beautiful cottage with others interested in the beauty and splendor of the mountains and the vibrant lifestyle of downtown Asheville.

Terri & Carl purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Terri & Carl chose Asheville

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 enjoy the eclectic and vibrant lifestyle that is Asheville.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A fantastic stay, the house was amazing. We were snowed in for four days and never got bored as the house was so cozy and comfortable. We had so much fun in those 4 days and made wonderful memories playing in the snow and having snow ball fights in the front yard. I will return again and again.

Perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about this charming home. We were looking for a convenient location that would be near all the great places we wanted to visit in Asheville for our brief stay and we found it with this property. The owners were great and welcomed us with a beautifully-decorated and clean home. We would hoghly recommend the house for two couples or a family of four to six.

Just what 5 teachers from Charleston needed!!

  • 5 of 5

Five teachers from a high school in Charleston decided to kick off spring break with a girls weekend in Asheville. We chose the Cozy Cottage on Church Street because of it's proximity to all things Asheville and we weren't disappointed. The cottage was close to everything--food, entertainment, nice strolls along beautiful streets and shopping. The cottage itself was beautifully appointed and had everything we needed. The beds were very comfortable and although we didn't cook during our stay (why would we with so many great restaurants near?) the kitchen had everything one would need to cook a beautiful meal. The laurel tree fence around the front yard is most exquisite and makes for a wonderful focal point in the front of this charming cottage. For our first soiree with VRBO, we couldn't have been happier. We absolutely cannot wait to come back next spring break.

Beautiful home in an ideal location!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved the Cozy Cottage on Church Street. Terri was a wonderful host. She provided information on the area, returned any inquiry I had in a timely manner, and went out of her way to make sure everyone in my party was comfortable. I would definitely stay here again, or in any other properties offered by this owner. Thanks for the hospitality!

Didn't want to leave

  • 5 of 5

My group came to Asheville for a wedding over Labor Day weekend and we were lucky enough to find the Cozy Cottage available for our stay. It is located on a quiet street that is one block from the action in any direction, so you get the best of both worlds. We walked all over downtown without a problem, and enjoyed many of the restaurants nearby.

The house itself has every comfort of home, and then some. Wonderful beds and linens, a gourmet kitchen, tons of character. And it was completely spotless!

I was a bit worried that the third bedroom (with the daybed trundle) would be very small, but it was a great size! Our group fit perfectly.

Thanks again, to Terri and Carlos, for providing a wonderful place for us to enjoy, and being so lovely and responsive in the months leading up!!

I can't wait to come back.

Owner's Response: Dear Alex, Thank you so much for lovely review. We are so thrilled that you and your friends enjoyed your stay with us. Yes, the location can not be beat for being on a quiet street one block from all the great action of downtown Asheville. We love having this as our second home and enjoy sharing it with others. As you mentioned, the third bedroom is actually large and I love the new furniture in that bedroom. It is such a fun and cheery room with wonderful light filtering in. We look forward to your future stay with us. Thanks so much for being our guests. Kindest regards, Terri and Carl

Great location and home amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We found the Cozy Cottage to be the perfect location to stay in Asheville! The beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms were well stocked with towels for our 4 day stay. We were a group of 3 couples and found we had ample room. We loved to sit out on the porch and start our day with coffee and end with a visit about what we had done during the day. Thanks for the wonderful accommodations- we will highly recommend the place to friends.

We love the cozy cottage! This was our second stay, and everything was great! We love the rooms, and a two block walk into town is just perfect! Hoping to go back again next year.
