Overview

Asheville House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2.5 Bathroom, A Park Lover's Dream. 1470 Square Foot

This is your destination for convenience and modern day accommodations. Interested in seeing more of Asheville? Yes, there are the mountains , the Biltmore and the hip downtown scene , but this spot is near it all PLUS just a short distance to the French Broad River park and Carrier Park. At the park, fish along the 3rd oldest river in the world or kayak. Bike or walk the greenway trail that continues all the way to Hominy Creek Park. Let the kids enjoy Carrier Park's massive playground. Guests are welcome to visit the WNC Arboretum for free with our membership pass during your stay.

Grab a beer at the notable Wedge Brewery, just on the other side of the river. And be sure to get some food at The Junction, White Duck Taco, Clingman Cafe or the President's favorite, 12 Bones Smokehouse all very near the property.

Many working art studios and galleries are also in this area named the River Arts District. Pink Dog Gallery, The Flood Gallery, Clay Space, The Asheville Glass Center and welcome guests to tour.

When we're visiting Asheville and the weather is nice, we spend a lot of time outside, on any one of the 3 porches that overlook the backyard.

Guests can build a campfire in the backyard next to the creek. The home was designed for family and guests to visit with includes plenty of private space as well as an open kitchen and living area.

Relax in the many options for outdoor seating, with great backyard views. This home is perfect for families or friends to visit Asheville, and be near to cool local spots like the park, river and River Arts District scene.

It is a spacious 3 Bedroom home with 2 queen beds, one full mattress futon bed and 2.5 baths . Two bedrooms have a large flat screen, with satellite channels. The home’s 3 level floor plan and large outdoor decks on each level, give guests the feeling of a modern day tree house when dining al fresco amongst numerous large trees surrounding this custom built home. The home has three separate stories, each accessible by stairs: the lower level has the master bedroom and master bath; ground level or first level has the kitchen; living area and a half bath; upstairs has 2nd bedroom; full bath and office with tv and futon.

Newly constructed in 2012, it is a healthy built, energy efficient home, with stainless steel appliances, front loading washer and dryer, walk-in shower and bathtub, hardwood floors, luxurious carpets, colorful rugs, beautiful granite counter tops, with abundant natural sunlight. The home has central air and heat, with a separate thermostat on each floor.

The home sits on a gently sloping hill, surrounded by trees, and adjoins a stream and natural meadows.

36 Moore Ave is a fantastic west Asheville location. The French Broad River flows through Carrier Park just blocks away, which joins the French Broad River Park by way of an extensive greenway trail. Here you can enjoy walking, running or riding a bike. Carrier Park has a large playground, a picnic area and also is a great spot to put a kayak or canoe in the water. If you brought your dog, the French River Park has a dog play pin area. The home offers two hybrid bicycles, as well as two helmets for you to ride around the area. On warm days, the French Broad River is great for a swim and to enjoy a float with inner tubs provided at the house.

In addition to the parks, this location is 1 mile from the River Arts District, Asheville’s premier gallery and working artists’ studios area. Historically a warehouse and railroad yard district, now the River Arts District is to home of some of the best artists in the region and country. Sculptors, ceramic potters, painters, fabric artists, fashion designers, and creative minds welcome you anytime to visit them in their galleries and studios. Some of the best barbeque in the region can be found at 12 Bones. Have a well-crafted beer at the Wedge Brewery, and bask in the afternoon sun with many locals, while watching the train cars slowly roll by.

Venture away from the river 1.5 miles, towards the heart of the thriving, quant west Asheville center, Haywood Road. Boutique shopping, breweries, bars, music venues, restaurants, café’s, holistic treatment centers and a grocery store are just a few minutes away.

Downtown Asheville is also 1.5 miles or just 10 minutes away, while Biltmore Estate entrance and Bent Creek Recreational Area are 15 minutes. Access the Blue Ridge Parkway easily from 36 Moore Ave. and head north or south on the Parkway, just 6 miles away.

About Larry and Susan Powell, owners; Sarah Nie, reservation manager

Welcome to our Asheville home. We purchased this home in January 2012 after owning a town home in Black Mountain for 2 years. We are both native floridians, visiting Asheville /Hendersonville for summer camps and family vacations when we were children. Asheville was our summer getaway of choice. We raised our children in So. Florida and moved to Carrboro, NC (near Chapel Hill) in 1999, 13 years ago.

Larry and Susan Powell, owners; Sarah Nie, reservation manager purchased this house in 2012

Why Larry and Susan Powell, owners; Sarah Nie, reservation manager chose Asheville

While many of our neighbors and friends flock to the coast, Asheville continued to be a favorite getaway. At this time we are moving from Carrboro to a downtown Durham loft as our primary residence. I would not be surprised if Asheville turned out to be our primary residence in the future. Why be in the Triangle, when you can be in the mountains.

We bought our current digs in West Asheville about a year ago. Most of our days in Asheville begin with a walk to the French Broad River Park. Just a block away from the house, how could you not. One of the many things in Asheville I never get tired of.

We love going to art galleries, which there are plenty of here, finding too much we love and cherish, ending up purchasing a few. Art is undoubtedly worth it when you can enjoy it on a daily basis.

What makes this house unique

Hiking and biking at Biltmore, the NC Arboretum and along the Blue Ridge Parkway, all a short drive are some of our favorite activities.

Lunch at the Pisgah Inn on the Blue Ridge Parkway is spectacular. It is just about a 30 minute drive from the house. We went there as children, we went there when our children were at camp in Hendersonville, continue to have lunch there periodically and I anticipate many more lunches there, looking forward. The food is definitely good and the view while dining is priceless.

Kayaking and tubing on the French Broad are also activities, we just can't get tired of. Downtown, the River Arts district, and West Asheville are normal outings, after we catch our breath from whatever preceded that particular day. Of course sitting high up in the trees on one the decks in the back of our home over looking the meadow and creek with a bottle of wine is fine way to end the day.

Enjoy our home, enjoy Asheville and surrounding areas, it will grow on you for sure, sorry or pleased to tell you. You never know, it could end up your primary residence also.

thank you,

Susan and Larry Powell

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a great time visiting Larry's home in Asheville! My husband, baby boy, and I met one of our couple friends there for the weekend. It was a great trip, as the men had just returned from Afghanistan and really needed a weekend away! Right away, we were so pleased with the house and every little detail that had been considered, right down to the hand soap and decorations on the walls. This space was perfect for two couples and a small baby. We thoroughly enjoyed it!

Everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

Your home provided everything we needed for a great vacation in Asheville. The kitchen was equipped with all the essentials and plenty of extras that made our stay comfortable. The home was beautifully furnished and the beds were quite comfortable. Enjoying the evenings on the decks was relaxing after busy days of exploring in and around Asheville. The proximity to Carrier Park and downtown was perfect for us, and we appreciated the quiet street. Thank you for providing a home away from home from which were were able to experience our first of hopefully many visits to Asheville.

Family gathering finds the perfect spot.

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were exactly what we needed. Our family came together from the west coast to the east coast, from the midwest to the southwest. Everyone had enough personal space, plus we had multiple gathering spots for breakfast, planning our days, or just hanging out. It was a quiet oasis in the middle of a very hectic week. The beds were very comfortable, everything was spotless, and the kitchen was well stocked. The washer/dryer was very handy, and even came with detergent. The location was perfect for all the things we wanted to do. From a walk along the river to a quick drive to the grocery store, it was all within minutes of the cottage. Plus, we found the Tupelo Honey Cafe for when we wanted to go "uptown" for a truly excellent dinner.

This is a perfect example of why I always check VRBO whenever I travel... a jewel of a spot! You've set the bar for other VRBO properties. Thanks to our gracious hosts.

beautiful house & good location.

  • 4 of 5

We spent the entire week in Asheville at this house and had a great time! The house is very comfortable, especially for 4 people. Beautifully decorated and the kitchen was amazing...we truly felt like we were staying in our own home! Location made it great because it was a quick ride to just about everything - downtown, Biltmore Village, breweries. Linens and kitchen supplies (fridge; silverware; pots & pans; coffee machine options) were top notch.

The downside to this rental was that even though it had decks there wasn't much of a view, but then again you aren't in the mountains you're close to town.

It was a great week all in all.....Thanks for having such a comfortable home and sharing it!

Adorable house in Asheville!

  • 4 of 5

My family of 4 and our dog had a wonderful week staying here! The house is just as cute as it looks in the listing and is very spacious, comfortable and clean. The kitchen was well stocked, with plenty of coffee making options (French press, drip coffee maker). My only, admittedly, minor complaint was the coffee mugs were way too small.

Having the park close by was a nice benefit and my kids biked over there several times. There is no sidewalk for the first part of the trip, though, so younger kids will probably need an adult to accompany them.

Asheville is a great place to visit - we went hiking, ziplining, and toured the Biltmore. We also enjoyed some of the great restaurants in town - Tupelo Honey, Mellow Mushroom and for a great craft beer selection, Bruisin' Ales. Everything is close to this house, I highly recommend it for your stay.
