We can not imagine finding a better place to stay for this vacation. The location was perfect being just 1 mile from the friends we were visiting. Talk about clean, you will be hard pressed to find even one spec of dust. There are plenty of dishes, cups, pots and pans. (The only things missing were an ice cream scooper and a pizza cutter.) It was especially nice to enjoy a peaceful breakfast on the side porch and watch the sun come up. We kept the place clean and followed the check out instructions and our security deposit was promptly refunded. If you are planning a trip to Asheville, we highly recommend this cottage. You can bask in a peaceful country setting but still have quick access to the city.
