Perfect for Us!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed here last week for our last vacation together before our son gets married. It was soooooo much better than a hotel because we had room to spread out, a kitchen to use, and an awesome location. The house was charming and well equipped. I was especially impressed by the cleanliness (I'm a bit of a clean freak!), the fresh flowers, and the high quality linens. The kitchen cabinets and countertops were a tiny bit dated, but the appliances were top notch, and it had all of the necessities. The beds were comfy and the bedrooms were just right. The owner responded quickly and favorably to our phone call to her with a question, and the whole experience was great. If I had a criticism it would be that the yard needed to be mowed and some weeds pulled in the flower beds, but that was a minor thing. We liked best the location as it really was close to everything! The stairs to the basement could be problematic for some, but we found them fun! Oh, and in addition to the hiking and the Biltmore House, our family really enjoyed the ropes course at Asheville Treetops. We would definitely stay there again!

Adorable Cottage; Conveniently Located in Cute Neighborhood Near Downtown Asheville

  • 5 of 5

We very much so enjoyed our stay on Lakewood Drive. It is convenient to the Biltmore and to downtown Asheville. It was very clean. The owners even left fresh cut flowers by the door. I would highly recommend for anyone looking for a cottage in Asheville.

Excellent accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this house. The owner had kindly provided a travel cot for our baby and the fresh cut flowers and lovely hand soaps were welcoming touches. The kitchen was extremely well equipped for a holiday home, and sitting room and bedrooms comfortable and modern. The property is situated in a lovely development surrounded by beautiful trees and a childrens' playpark in quiet and safe surroundings. I'd highly recommend this property to anyone staying in Asheville.

Delightful home in quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this comfortable home, nestled in a wooded, hilly neighborhood with winding roads. The fresh cut cherry blossom twigs in the entryway were a nice touch! We enjoyed meals on the back deck during warmer days, and the warmth of the gas fireplace on colder days. The large screen TV above the fireplace was a nice upgrade. All of the beds were super comfy with high quality sheets and down comforters. It is close to downtown, restaurants and grocery stores. We enjoyed a few walks around the neighborhood and shot some hoops at the park across the street. We also saw two of the wild turkeys, that one reviewer mentioned, while driving back to the house one day. The owner was very nice and responded to any questions we had before and during our trip. We enjoyed eating at Moe's Original BBQ, White Duck Taco Shop, El Que Pasa, and 12 Bones. We also had fun hiking Mt. Pisgah, seeing waterfalls in DuPont Forest, traversing the ropes courses at Asheville Treetops Adventure, playing for hours at the Pinball Museum, touring Moog Music, riding the bus of the hilarious La Zoom Comedy Tour, and visiting the Sierra Nevada Brewery. With all of the fun and activities, it was a joy to come this comfy, quiet abode each night!

Great home in Asheville

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the little house on the hill. The house was well equipped, comfortable, and a short drive to downtown. We would definitely stay again on our next visit to Asheville.
