Asheville Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Private 2 Bedroom, 1 Bath Cottage Centrally Located
Completely renovated, clean, well-furnished 2 bedroom home located on very quiet side street in a beautiful, historic Asheville neighborhood, seconds from Biltmore Avenue (the city's main drag), 1.5 miles from downtown Asheville and .5 miles from the Biltmore House front gate. The property offers plenty of open space, majestic hemlock trees, beautiful stonework features, all within a wonderfully-walkable neighborhood.
Inside the house, you'll walk on recently refinished hardwood floors throughout. The front bedroom is airy and well-lit with four screened, fully functioning windows. The back bedroom is a sleeper's paradise. Each of the bedrooms has a full-sized closet and a chest of drawers so you can unpack and just live.....
Ceiling fans in bedrooms and brand-new central heat and air-conditioning mean you've got full control of your comfort no matter what.
Blackout blinds on the windows mean Mother Nature won't wake late sleepers.
Brand-new, fully-tiled bathroom with historic hints, so you can clean up from your mountain hike in king-like comfort.
Full-size washer and dryer -- so you can travel light and wash while you're here.
The fully-stocked eat-in kitchen offers a full-size stove, refrigerator, dishwasher. The appliances were purchased in 2014.
The neighborhood is great for a quiet, exploratory stroll, and Asheville is a mecca for cyclists, rock climbers, hikers, and river boaters. The owners are avid cyclists and can recommend a full variety of road and mountain biking options, as well as lots of interesting mountain-view and waterfall hikes.
Biltmore Village and Biltmore Estate are just blocks away, offering 1920's style and luxury. Asheville's historic downtown is also close by, packed with great restaurants (at least 5 of which are run by James Beard Nominated chefs), music venues, shops, and art galleries. Don't miss the Pritchard Park drum circle every Friday night!
This home provides a perfect get-away for couples, small families or small groups of friends. The owners care about the cottage and the neighborhood. The cottage is not an appropriate place for large gatherings, loud parties, or events. There is ample parking for 2 vehicles.

Why Elizabeth Mills chose Asheville
In 2010, we purchased the cottage which sits on a .5 acre lot, adjacent to our 1924 home in the Kenilworth neighborhood. The street where we currently live is a dream spot to us because of its central location, its beauty, and the surrounding neighborhood. We have recently put a ton of energy into this place, and we have fallen in love with it anew. We are pleased to offer it for your enjoyment here, and we are sure you'll share our appreciation of this fantastic home.
What makes this cottage unique
This property is located in a quiet neighborhood, populated by historic properties and huge trees. The house itself is adjacent to and overlooks a small, heavily-wooded, public park with hiking trails. This neighborhood is incredibly walkable, and full of neat places to explore. We have recently refinished every interior surface of the home, investing our personal elbow-grease into it...which has made us feel even more affection for the place.
