Perfect location and so much more!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Cate's Cottage, it was the perfect place for two couples a baby and a dog! Lots of lovely walks close by for our dog, not to mention sooo many squirrels to chase! Downtown is an easy 10 minute walk from the cottage and highway access is very easy for car trips. The cottage is clean, well maintained and comfortable. We would definitely stay here again!

Affordable, Pet Friendly and Walking Distance to Downtown Asheville

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Cate's Cottage twice now and will continue to when we visit Asheville. Dwontown Asheville is about a mile away, and there are restaurants very close by to eat at. There is also a small convenience store around the corner. Great place if you want to be close to downtown Asheville!

Cute and convenient

  • 4 of 5

The location was perfect. So close to everything. I felt the online pictures didn't do it justice. Very cute. We had our two little ones with us and they had toys, books, and bean bags for them. I loved the natural products they also had stocked in the home such as hand soap, detergent, and conditioner. Little touches like fresh ground coffee was really nice. We enjoyed it.

My family had a wonderful stay at Cate's Cottage. True to it's description, the cottage had plenty of space inside and out. It was well maintained, easy walk to downtown, off street parking and Cate and Ben live right across the street if you have any questions. We would highly recommend staying here for your next visit to Asheville.

Great Place To Stay

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 weeks in the cottage. Ben and Cate (the owners) are extremely friendly and accommodating. They live across the alley and are on hand if you need things, but don't hover or bother unless you call.

The house has a very nice floor plan that makes its square footage seem larger. The front living room can easily seat 5 or 6 while viewing TV; the dining room is comfortably sized for 4-6 and provides a nice work area if not being used for dining. The bedrooms and bathroom are off to the side of the house giving privacy and quiet. The bedrooms are comfortably sized with ample closet space for this era of home. The kitchen is galley styled and has what you need. The counter space is limited but sufficient for most cooking you'll do. A big benefit is the sitting room off the kitchen. You have a place for someone to go and read while others are using the living room, or if you get more guests than expected, you can use it as an overflow bedroom (all you need is a cot or air mattress). The front porch offers a great place to sit to have coffee or enjoy the evening breeze - complete with friendly neighbors who don't mind chatting.

The only negative on the house is the backyard isn't completely fenced if you're traveling with pets. However, with our 2 dogs, we didn't find it to be problematic and just leashed them when we needed to take them out. The backyard is sufficient for your dogs' bathroom breaks and provides good privacy from neighbors thanks to bamboo and other plants.

This is a very convenient area in Montford for your stay. 9 Mile (a very good restaurant) is literally around the block; you can walk to Montford Park; you have tons of options when you walk your dogs (every day, I was able to take a slightly different route); you can walk (15-20 mins) or drive (5 mins) to downtown; and you can easily get to I240 and I26.

It's hard to think you can do better. This is a very good value place to stay - the house is nice, you have room for yourself and your family/guests, it's convenient to so many things, and it's on a quiet street (that is more like an alley) that puts you 1/2 block from Montford Avenue and about a block from Cumberland. We definitely hope to return as our 5 week stay flew by - we can't believe it's time to leave.
