Overview

Asheville Area Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Beautiful secluded 1 bedroom apartment with private entrance and dedicated off street covered parking. Centrally located - only 10 minutes to Downtown Asheville and Biltmore Estates, 5 minutes Blue Ridge Parkway, 15 to 20 minutes to Lake Lure, Chimney Rock, Black Mountain

Fully equipped kitchen and dining area provides you the opportunity to enjoy light snacks, four course meals or a romantic take out for two. There are several major food stores close by for your shopping ease.

Wake up slowly and drink in the fresh mountain air with your morning coffee or tea. With the Mountain View and being nestled by trees at 'Holly Haven', these serene surroundings invite you to linger a little longer for a second cup.

Just relax in the cool NC Mountains or if you want to see the sites, you'll have a long list of activities to choose from as we provide literature in the apartment for your leisurely perusal. Nearby are very popular 'must see' film landmarks:

*Lake Lure - Original 'Dirty Dancing'

*Chimney Rock - 'Last of the Mohicans'

*Black Mountain - Current Blockbuster ' The Hunger Games'

Asheville is a great town with much history, spectacular restaurants, unique shops and the nicest people you'll ever meet!

About Susan Hinz

As a world traveler having vast experience with staying in different types of accomodations, I wanted to provide the best of all worlds in Holly Haven. Creating a 'home away from home', Holly Haven has been designed to be a destination for traveling souls desiring a relaxing atmosphere.

Susan Hinz purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Susan Hinz chose Asheville Area

I've found all the natural beauties and open mindedness of Europe in Asheville! From the moderate climate, waterfalls and abundent nature to the cosmopolitan restaurants, ecclectic and down to earth people, Asheville area has it all in one place.

What makes this apartment unique

Peace, serenity and a retreat into nature at Holly Haven. So many activities are nearby or just stay in and get lost in the sweeping vista views of the mountains for hours.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a lovely stay in your apartment. Thank you so much for opening it for visitors to stay.

This was such a comfortable place to return to each evening for rest and respite. We so appreciated the apartment ; a true haven. Thank you for your gracious hospitality in leaving us the banana bread. It was a lovely kindness and very delicious!

Wonderful place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We were greeted with a nice note and fresh homemade banana bread from Susan. Holly Haven was very clean and comfortable and in a beautiful location. Would have been a 5 star, but with the summer foliage, the view was somewhat obstructed. Close proximity to Asheville, grocery stores, Blue Ridge Parkway entrance, etc. Bathroom, shower, kitchen, etc were all newer, very clean and made for a comfortable stay. I would definitely recommend staying at Holly Haven if you want a place close to Asheville, with a quiet mountain setting.

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I came to town to celebrate her birthday and this was the perfect place for us. Close to downtown Asheville yet quiet and peaceful. The apartment was very clean and well furnished. There was even banana bread left for us by the owner. Will definitely be back. Thanks.

Great little oasis

  • 5 of 5

I came down for the holiday weekend and enjoyed my stay. The apartment is perfect for one or two people, was clean, well maintained. The location is great, close to the city of Asheville, and close to natural parks and attractions. I really appreciated all the brochures and pamphlets that were available to browse through. I had one or two things I wanted to do and see around the area, but there is so much more to explore and discover. The banana bread was greatly appreciated after a very long drive :). I would certainly stay here again and would recommend Holly Haven to family and friends.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful little hideaway with a very kind host. Great location and pretty quiet. Everything we needed was there and the shower was great. Host was kind enough to "fix" the tv first thing after sending an email. Tv wasn't actually broken, the heater just put out some interference. We would definitely return again.

Great time in a cozy nook!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I decided to come up to Asheville last minute, and we were lucky enough to find Holly Haven. The property manager was extremely responsive - we literally made the booking while we were driving! The home is very well maintained, comfortable, and clean. There was even fresh baked banana bread waiting for us upon arrival. Great place to stay for a couple!
