Asheville House Rental Photos and Description
2/3 bedroom in rural setting 4 miles from downtown

Chestnut Hill is a two/three bedroom home located in a country setting yet only 4 miles from downtown. It is a short ride to everything you want to do in the Asheville area, including wonderful dining, gorgeous hiking, and antiquing. The Biltmore estate is 15 minutes away. After a day of sight seeing and adventure, Chestnut Hill is a great place to call home. Here you can cook a meal in the fully appointed large kitchen, watch TV, go on the internet, or just relax.

Our home has a very large living room with comfy leather couches, large dining area with seating for 6, a fully equipped kitchen and a tiled bath with a tub/shower combination. The entire home has hardwood floors and is professionally decorated. The walls are decorated with antique theatre posters

The large master bedroom suite has a queen size bed with a pillowtop mattress and a 1/2 bath. The attached sitting room (can be used as a third bedroom) has a daybed with trundle that can be pulled out for two twin beds and a flat screen tv. It also has a door to the outside porch.

The large second bedroom also has a queen size bed with sliders going to the outside porch

The home has plenty of parking, is located on fenced land, and is a great place to unwind after a day exploring Asheville or hiking nearby mountain trails. The grounds are full of organically grown fruit trees, nuts, berries and grapes. If you are visiting when they are ripe you are welcome to enjoy them. There is an attached apartment that is partially beneath the house.

Asheville boasts activities which will satisfy all in your travel party. Hiking trails and outdoor activities such as horseback riding, canoeing, and whitewater rafting are within easy driving distance. Skiing and a zipline tour are within a 20 minute drive. For the shopper in your group, Asheville has a host of antique shops, boutiques, art galleries,and crafts. Evening activities include diverse dining options, movies, live theatre, live music, or just walking through Asheville's energetic downtown filled with street performers and art. The Biltmore estate is breathtaking in summer and glorious when decorated for Christmas. Chimney Rock Park is worth the 20 minute drive. Wonderful hiking and beautiful views await you in every direction. A drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway in autumn hightlights the beautiful peak colors. There are many festivals throughout the year for the whole family.

We are a family owned and operated property. We have two places in Asheville and two in nearby Swannanoa and are proud of our warm and friendly vacation homes.

Marilyn Del Vecchio purchased this house in 2010

We bought this property because our children live in Asheville (son Sam and family live next door). My son and daughter run the Del Vecchio Clinic in Asheville specializing in acupuncture and allergies

The numerous fruit trees, berry bushes and nut trees grown organically on the property by our son are wonderful.

Great property

My family and I enjoyed our stay here. The owner was easy to work with and responsive to an issue that cropped up. It was rectified the same day. The home had plenty of space for us. The location was convenient to shopping, restaurants and the Biltmore. We were pleased to have snow during our visit along with extremely cold temps, but the house had good heat and hot water. (Although the back bedroom with the trundle bed seemed colder than the other rooms.) The tv/internet worked well.

We would definitely return.

We stayed there for the weekend and enjoyed it very much! It is very clean and comfortable place to stay if you are looking for a weekend or a whole week stay. It is very close to downtwon and other places. I would greatly recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a place to stay in Ashville. It is definately better than hotel. Thank you!

Perfect yard for dogs and convenient to town

This house was clean and comfortable and more than suited our needs. It is very close and convenient to town and also has a fenced yard for dogs. There were blackberries in the yard and we were able to pick a few ripe ones. We have stayed in several of Marilyn's properties and have always been satisfied. The washing machine had a problem and she made sure it was fixed the same day. We would recommend this property and her others in the Swannanoa area.

We enjoyed staying at this spacious property. There was plenty of room for our family of four and our pooch. The fenced-in yard was perfect for our dog. We were close to Asheville, so it was a convenient location. The owner was very responsive to questions. This was so much better than staying in a hotel!

Beautiful Home!

If you have dogs this is perfect! There are multiple fully fenced yards for them to run around. The house itself is beautiful too. Comfy beds and couches, wi-fi and cable TV. If you are a light sleeper you may want to bring ear plugs because the neighbors own some fairly loud donkeys. Also, if you are planning on riding bikes down town, be prepared for a long uphill on the way home. Overall, top notch accommodations!

Super Stay in W. Asheville!

  • Submitted: May 23, 2013

What a great place to stay! I was going to say "little" place to stay, but it's 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, huge eat-in kitchen, and separate living room was more than ample for us and the pups; the fenced in front yard was a big plus.

The listing description was spot on. The property was clean, very well maintained, and comfortably decorated. Everything was right where you'd think it should be. We had a small intermittent problem with the internet router, but it was never for very long and we were impressed with the speed of the server.

Being as directionally challenged as I am, it was wonderful to have Sam patiently walk me through getting to the property (and believe me it was not difficult to get to) Julia was out front when I came in. It tickled me that she is due the same week as our daughter.

I would recommend this property to anyone coming to the Asheville area. It is far enough away from the city that the setting is quiet and relaxing, but close enough that nothing is all that far way (5 to 10 minute drive into downtown Asheville). This property is out in the country by all standards. It won't take you long to become familiar with the neighborhood donkey :-) (and I mean that in a very nice way).

While we were in Asheville, we attended a function at The Bywater on Riverside Dr. It is a private club, but the membership fee is only 5 dollars. What a fun place! Children are allowed only until dusk. I'd also like to mention the Ultimate Ice cream Company; great ice cream, and they are very helpful when it comes to coming up with something unique for a special event.

Thanks for a lovely stay!
