CHARMING, ARTSY, CRAFTSMAN BUNGALOW, NEAR DOWNTOWN ASHEVILLE

Asheville Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

Bungalow, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Welcome to Mint Cottage, our charming, Craftsman style bungalow located just 5 minutes from downtown. As you open the white picket gate out front you’ll feel yourself go back in time and place. This recently renovated 1912 bungalow has all the amenities for the perfect getaway AND it is conveniently located to all that Asheville has to offer-amazing restaurants and shopping, the Biltmore Estate, the Blue Ridge Parkway and many outdoor adventure activities. Enjoy the comfort of your own home away from home in our cottage on a quiet neighborhood street.

The two bedrooms are furnished with one double bed and one queen with high thread count sheets, quilts and down comforters. The Moroccan Room will transport you to another country. Tranquil, with two couches and mood lighting this room can sleep two on the couches or be used as a quiet room to read or relax in.

The house is decorated with comfortable furniture, antiques and unique art. The cheerful yellow and blue kitchen is fully equipped with anything you would need to cook a full meal, reheat take out, or pop some croissants into the oven while your coffee is brewing. There is a full sized washer and dryer in the home.

A door from the kitchen leads you onto a deck in the fenced in backyard. Your dog will love having the doggie door to run in and out while you relax, cook out on the barbecue, watch the birds at the feeder, or explore the neighborhood on the two bikes.

Jeff and Meryl live in Charleston, SC. We have been married for 33 years and have two children, 2 dogs and a cat. We love to travel and met while backpacking in Europe when we were in college. Having a place in Asheville gives us the best of both worlds-Beach and Mountains. Meryl is originally from NJ and is an artist and Jeff is a proud Kentuckian, loves to garden and being retired.

The Owner purchased this bungalow in 2002

We purchased our Asheville house when our daughter was a student at UNCA. After she graduated we decided to renovate it and use it as a mountain getaway. We love the character of a 1912 home but with all modern conveniences. We love the cool mountain weather and the abundance of activities in and around Asheville. It is great to stroll around downtown and see what is happening-there always seems to be a festival, a street fair, or other excitement going on. If you love the arts, there are plenty of galleries and the new River Arts District. There is every kind of outdoor activity-on a recent trip we went tubing and berry-picking. If you love craft beer, Asheville was just voted #1 Beer City in the US!

You will love Mint Cottage, appropriately named for the abundance of mint growing in the front yard. It is a lovely location in a residential neighborhood, but walking distance to restaurants, coffee shops and Ultimate Ice Cream-the best in Asheville!! The house is comfortable, snug and very clean. It is colorfully and artistically decorated with many of the artist owner's personal touches. We are dog-friendly, with fenced front and back yards and a doggy door. We have a notebook of menus from our favorite restaurants as well as suggestions of where to shop, what to see and what to do! There is a deck for outdoor relaxing. There is off street parking for two cars.

A Real Charmer

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was very comfortable for all of us to enjoy our visit. Loved relaxing with my daughter’s on the front porch in the evenings while enjoying our wine, knitting and each other’s company. I was fascinated with seeing Fire Flies for the first time. Neat little creatures. We took advantage of the cooler weather and the neighborhood’s eclectic appeal exploring the hilly streets with the distinctive mix of homes and apartments throughout with several walks during the week. We had fun together cooking in the large, well-stocked kitchen and also had fun BBQ-ing on the back deck. The cottage is centrally located and found the location convenient for our day trips we took to downtown Asheville, Black Mountain, Brevard, Hendersonville, Dillsboro and Lil’ Switzerland. We will definitely consider renting this cottage again for future Asheville visits. Thank you for making our family feel so welcome!!

Artsy in Asheville

  • 4 of 5
Great location. Just 5 minutes from downtown Asheville. Situated in a quiet residential neighborhood. Harris Teeter and Trader Joes just 2 minutes away. Great fenced in front and back yards for dog owners. Very clean house with everything you might need. Decor is very artsy. We will definitely return.

Owner's Response: Thank you! We have just removed an out building, so there is even a better, bigger backyard. We also put a roof over the deck, which will be great for the summer sun.

Perfect family getaway spot

  • 5 of 5
With a teenage son and a tween girl, we are always looking for something other than hotel rooms when we travel for long stays. The Mint Cottage was perfect for us and -- bonus -- we got to bring our two pups along. The photos and room descriptions are accurate representations of the cottage. We had plenty of room to spread out and relax after a long day of exploring Asheville. The home was super clean, the kitchen fully equipped, there were plenty of sheets and towels, the shower was hot, and the TV had lots of movie channels. We ended up changing our reservations 3 times, and Meryl was accommodating and responsive every time. We highly recommend the Mint Cottage. Great house and great value!

Spring Break

  • 5 of 5
Loved the cottage and it's location. The pics and info in the ad are accurate. Easy walk south to downtown or north to UNC and lots of restaurants with very reasonable prices and top notch food. (Like Louellen's, Ave M and Noi's Thai cafe)
The cottage was clean, comfortable and well maintained. I had a pleasant conversation with Meryl before renting, she was helpful, answered all our questions. There is a friendly local property manager to help you with anything you need. The security deposit was refunded almost immediately. The front and back yards are both fenced. The chairs and glider on the front porch were a nice touch. We spent every morning out there with coffee,fresh baked pastries (from Dough) and our dachsies planning the days adventure. We would stay here again.

WONDERFUL!!!

  • 5 of 5
I lived in this home for 3 weeks and could not have been any happier with it. It is in the best location, has amazing parking, and is so so clean. The home itself is very comfortable and welcoming, and has plenty of space. While there were only a few of us, there is so much room to fit a lot more! I would suggest this home to anyone looking for a place to stay in Asheville. I know one review mentioned the noise level but we never once over the course of three weeks had any sort of problem with noise. It was always quiet! It was also amazing to have the groundskeeper near by in case we need anything. Having that peace of mind is a huge luxury! Will most definitely be staying here again :)

Thanksgiving Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Each year our immediate family spends Thanksgiving at a location amicable for each member. We decided on Asheville because we could incorporate a visit to the Biltmore and enjoy a Thanksgiving feast at the Grove Park Inn plus enjoy the fine dining and brewing establishments in Asheville. The Mint Cottage provided plenty of room for five adults and one dog. The drive way easily allowed for parking for two vehicles. The cottage is located only several blocks from downtown Asheville with a drive of no more than five to ten minutes. The fenced yard is spacious to allow your pet to run without a leash. We enjoyed our four-day stay at the cottage and would recommend it for a stay at Asheville.
