We have lived in Asheville for over 30 years.

As licensed natural health care professionals, we are happy to help visitors connect with any services desired from the very broad selection of Asheville natural health professionals.

Both Richard and Audrey come from large families and appreciate the preciousness of spending family time together, especially with grandchildren. We're always ready to add a few new visiting “family members.”

Our interests include swimming, hiking, biking, traveling, and we love meeting new people. When traveling we enjoy experiencing local cultural experiences and the people native to that area. Travels that we yet long for are many, including bicycling in Bhutan, revisiting South America and always more time in Southern France or Nova Scotia, Canada (Richard's home previous to Asheville.)

Richard and Audrey Koerber purchased this apartment in 1997

We've seen Asheville grow from a desolate downtown into the thriving, vibrant community that it is today. We love sharing “our town” with visitors. We are familiar with many special places of nature to visit via foot, bicycle, boat or motor vehicle. We also are happy to share our favorite restaurants, microbreweries and music venues.

Brief history on the house:

The land was purchased on August 29,1897 for $300. The house is believed to be built a year later in 1898. George and Isabelle Cooke built the house. He was born and educated in England. He entered the lumber business in Canada and met and married his wife there. He had lumber mills in Canada and Florida and it was this business that brought him to Asheville, where he established a lumber mill at the present site of the Biltmore Estate, the property afterwards was bought by George W. Vanderbilt. He was a resident of Asheville for nearly half a century and he was connected with Hans Rees Tannery, buying timber and bark, and his reputation for honest dealing made him known and revered throughout Western North Carolina.

We have owned this house since 1997.

We have created an atmosphere in our apartment that reflects the type of warmth, hospitality and relaxation that we have often been blessed to enjoy while traveling abroad. We hope that you will enjoy your stay here !

Luxurious and convenient

  • 5 of 5
The apartment was lovely, well stocked, and had all the amenities. It was easy to find, and the instructions for getting in and out of the apartment were clear. The location was perfect--walking distance to downtown, Starbucks, good grocery stores, and local restaurants, bakeries, and bars. Also, easy drive to tourist spots--Grove Park Inn and Biltmore.

Great place! Great owners! Great location!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I are so glad we stayed at a property such as this as opposed to a hotel. The owners are friendly and accommodating, even leaving us wine, coffee and chocolate upon arrival! They also were able to let us check in early which helped us to make the most of our time there. We will definitely return to this artisan retreat!!

My mother and I came for a long weekend to celebrate her 60th. The apartment is lovely, and the owners are so nice! The decor was terrific, the apartment had everything we needed, and the location could not have been better. We are both looking forward to returning!

Wonderful property near downtown Asheville!!!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful holiday in Asheville!! This apartment is in the perfect location for exploring downtown - within walking distance of the fun, but in a lovely, quiet neighborhood. Richard & Audrey were excellent hosts - good directions to the best walking route downtown, restaurant recommendations and more. Everything about our visit exceeded our expectations! Don't miss the River Arts District! Thank-you very much.

Asheville downtown

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely adorable place. I've been to Asheville many times, this is by far my favorite place I have stayed. Its a great location and nicely decorated. I briefly met the owners, and they are very warm and friendly people.
The only negative is that the bed was so comfortable, it made it hard to get out of bed in the morning:)

Adorable little apartment minutes from downtown, and walking distance to so much! Very cozy and romantic, but also plenty of space. The area is beautiful, and communication with the property manager was flawless. Highly recommended!!!!
