Overview

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.

About The Owner

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

Why The Owner chose Asheville

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!

What makes this bungalow unique

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.

comfortable place

Great location near the college and good restaurants. Easy walk to downtown. Some nice upgrades to the property since our stay last year. We enjoy the home, our dogs love the fenced yard. We enjoy sitting on the front porch.

Excellent location. Nearby "Ultimate Ice Cream" store was delicious. Eclectic furnishings and clean, well maintained house made Mint Cottage a great base for our Asheville explorations.

Very comfortable and great location. The kitchen was wonderful with all the updates including a washer and dryer. Perfect size and good living area with nice TV and tons of cable channels as well as internet. Loved that it was very clean, felt like home. The yards were wonderful for the dogs but unfortunately there was a lot of rain and former guest were probably not able to pick up after their dogs because of the weather.

Thank you for all the great decorations - never tired of looking at them.

Awesome location!!

We had a great time staying at Mint Cottage. Check in was a breeze, and Meryl's communication with us was excellent. The house is great and well maintained. Love the quirky decorating style. Our pup loved the yards, and we loved how close it was to everything. This was the perfect getaway for us to start off the new year. Thanks Meryl!!

We had a wonderful Christmas vacation at the Mint Cottage. The beds are so comfortable and the house was very clean. We are seniors visiting our son and his wife. They are expecting our first grandchild in the Spring,so we hope to come back to the cottage. My Lab loved the yards (front and back) enclosed, just for her fun. The house is close to everything.
