About Stephen Lutz

Stephen & Beth have lived in Asheville since 1982 so we know the area well. We have four grown children, love to travel, but also love to keep exploring our home town. We enjoy meeting new people and our guests.

Stephen Lutz purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Stephen Lutz chose Asheville

If you want to be close to downtown and the Biltmore Estate but don't want the hassle of a parking deck, our location is about as good as it gets.

What makes this apartment unique

A lot of love went into the building of Craftsman Cottage, from the beautiful custom woodwork to the deck overlooking the garden. We love it when guests take time to explore the grounds of our 1914 era Craftsman home.

Beautiful Place to Stay--Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place to stay for our trip to Asheville. We love Craftsman architecture, and were delighted at the great attention to craftsman detail and design. Really nice.

The location was perfect too. Kenilworth is a beautiful, quiet neighborhood full of gorgeous old craftsman homes/mansions, but it is just down the hill to the Biltmore Estate and downtown Asheville, where most of our weekend was spent.

The owners, who live next door, are fun people with great ideas for restaurants and things to do. Tupelo Honey is a great place to eat that they told us about. They had a complimentary bottle of wine waiting on us when we arrived, which we enjoyed on the deck of the cottage, which is particularly lovely. It has vines with blooming roses growing along the rail of the deck with little lights interspersed, which makes it look and smell wonderful at night. This was a great place to stay, and we can’t wait to go back!

Quiet, comfortable place to enjoy time away

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great time in Asheville. This rental is close to a lot of places in town, a quick drive to many delicious places to eat. My 2-year-old daughter loved playing on the patio, even on the colder days. We loved our stay overall.

Peaceful, perfect, clean home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely VRBO is set up so perfectly you do not need to bring anything! Located in such an easy place to be able to come and go! The neighborhood is charming and a nice place to walk the pup as this is a dog friendly rental...There is a fabulous deck over looking the gardens. We were there in late winter so the foliage was still asleep. We were still able to relax in the sun with the lovely wine the owners left us after a day at the Biltmore. Absolutely amazing restaurants just minutes away in downtown. Bed was super comfy and the place immaculate. We will return!

Nice Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the Craftsmen Cottage for our 20th Anniversary. My favorite thing about our stay was the location. The cottage sets in an established neighborhood, just off of Biltmore Avenue. If you drive out to Biltmore Avenue and turn left, the Biltmore Estate entrance is just a couple of miles up the road. If you turn right, downtown is just a couple miles up the road. And all other points of interest are a short drive. The cottage is very cozy, although I would suggest an update of the sofa. The current one is not very comfortable. My biggest complaint, however, was the lack of window coverings. Except for the large windows in the bedroom, there are no other window coverings in the cottage. When you're in the living room at night, with the lights on, it felt a little uncomfortable knowing the neighbor's could see right in. The owner's probably want to retain the charm of the Craftsmen style, but I think privacy of the guest should be more important. Besides that, we had a wonderful time.
