Asheville Apartment Rental Photos and Description
1 bedroom, 1 bath, sleeps 2

Our sweet little apartment, aka the 'Little Sister', offers a quiet and peaceful escape from the bustle of downtown, while only a 5 minute drive away, located in the beautiful Grovepark neighborhood. We have a very comfortable queen size bed that is topped with a memory foam pad that is nestled in the corner of the room with windows on both sides. During the summer you may sleep with the windows and screen door open while listening to the water flowing in the garden and the birds chirping in the yard. There is a deck off the back that has a table and chairs, perfect for enjoying the garden or a glass of wine before you go out. The apartment has a galley kitchen and living room equipped with satellite TV, DVR and high speed internet. The Little Sister is attached to our home, so we are nearby to offer anything you may need to make your vacation better - whether it's restaurant recommendations and hiking advice, or a bike or cooler to borrow. We love Asheville, and are happy to point you in the direction you're trying to get to.

There are no pets allowed at this property anytime, nor any smoking permitted on the premises.

We love the Grove Park neighborhood for it's friendly people, convenient location (5 minutes from downtown), and the scenic hills that provide great walking and biking. Being so close to Beaver Lake is nice as well as a place to run, walk, or birdwatch at the bird sanctuary next door. There are also many great locally owned restaurants in N. Asheville within walking distance of the apartment.

Our perennial flower garden, water feature, and vegetable garden is a plus for our guests, who are free to enjoy the bounties of these.

We enjoyed our stay in your little "suite" - all the comforts of a hotel with none of the hassle! We packed in as much of Asheville could offer in our 4.5 days - and still feel like we missed stuff. So we'll be back - maybe in spring when all the flowers are blooming. We highly recommend the NC Arboretum! There weren't enough meals in the day to hit all the restaurants we saw.

A lot of thought went into the Little Sister. We enjoyed this cozy apartment space. Thanks for the recommendations that you listed in your email - food, neighborhood, groceries. I plan on coming back to the Little Sister in the future.

Thank you so much for sharing Little Sister with us. It was the perfect weekend getaway to explore Asheville. Great food recommendations - we loved Curate downtown for tapas.

Lynne and Steve,
Having stayed downtown at the Urban Nest, we were looking forward to trying the Little Sister. We were not disappointed. Great walking area. We enjoyed wine on the balcony overlooking your lovely garden and watching the fireflies come out. Thanks for sharing your New York Times!

What a wonderful three days at the Little Sister...everything was perfect. Lynne your attention to detail makes your guests want for nothing. Thank you for telling us about the Battery Park Book Exchange; you are right, it's the coolest place in Asheville, and that's saying something! The only downside of staying here is that we have to leave. We can't wait to return soon. Happy trails!

Perfect off-the-beaten path getaway

This cozy apartment is exactly as described. I was a bit concerned about the size of the shower but it was more than adequate. The Little Sister is clean and comfortable with quality bed linens and amenities. Anything I needed was provided without question, whether it was an extra towel or directions. I would recommend the little sister to a single person or a couple looking for affordable comfort in a safe community.
We loved 12 Bones BBQ, Fig and Avenue M eateries. The Blue Ridge Parkway is such a bonus when staying in Asheville. Go!
Owner's Response: I'm glad you guys were pleased with the Little Sister! We actually just installed a new shower in there, so it's larger than the one in the photo. Please come again,
Lynne

Great!

Little Sister was a cozy little nest from which to explore Asheville. The space was very thoughtfully and efficiently planned, making its small size work very well. The owners (although invisible!) were clearly interested in our having/knowing everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Great recommendations for restaurants and activities, wonderful walkable neighborhood. It was a very cold winter weekend, so we couldn't enjoy the water feature and garden...next time! Made me want to move to Asheville!
Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed yourselves. In the winter we tend to see guests less since we are not out working in the garden. Hopefully our paths will cross next time!
