Great, simple property close to everything in Asheville

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time staying at the house for our long weekend in Asheville with 3 adults. The house is the perfect size for 2-4 people, although it can sleep 6 I think it would be pretty tight with more than 4 (unless there are some kids, who I'm sure would get a great kick out of sleeping in the loft). The surrounding property is gorgeous, it's very peaceful, and yet it's only a 5 minute drive to downtown Asheville. The furnishings are bare bones, but sufficient (everything is IKEA and not a lot of decor or individual touches, but for a rental property that's totally understandable). The beds are comfortable, and the house came stocked with everything we needed - trash bags, paper towels, linens, coffee filters, soap, even laundry detergent and a nice bottle of local wine. Everything was in great working order and the house was clean - I'm a bit of a neat freak so I noticed a few areas here and there that could use a little more attention, but nothing that made me feel uncomfortable. Unfortunately it was unseasonably warm during our visit so we didn't get make use of the wood stove! As other people mentioned in their reviews, do watch your feet on the brick surround for the stove, it's quite easy to trip or stub your toe.

Next time we visit we would definitely consider renting this house again! It was a gorgeous mountain getaway with the convenience of being so close to downtown.

Nice Getaway

  • 4 of 5

This cottage is very centrally located to everything. It is a small two bedroom, one bath, and a great place for a long weekend for two. Very well stocked in terms of dishes and appliances. You will spend most of your time out hiking and seeing the local sites, but it is nice to be able to cook a meal at the cabin and enjoy some R&R on the deck. The master bed not very comfortable, old mattress and hard to get a good night sleep on, but that is really the only downside. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely think about going back.

Nice cabin - close in

  • 4 of 5

This is a really nice cabin that is very close to downtown Asheville. It is a very easy drive up Town Mountain to get to the location with only a few twist and turns. The cabin is very close to other cabins and this one shares a drive with one right up the hill. They have to back down the hill and try to turn around where you are parked. There are no views to speak of as the trees block your view. The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans and cookware. There is plenty of paper products and cleaning supplies. Well supplied as compared to others I have visited.

Please be careful upon entering the unit as there is a wood stove right in the front door and there is a cement block base that you will trip over until you get used to walking through the room and not stumping your toe. Also be careful in the shower as the cold water handle is installed backwards so when you think you are turning down the cold it gets really hot fast.

Lovely mountain and city vacation cottage.

  • 5 of 5

This cozy cottage suited our family just perfectly. So much so that we even extended our stay for one more night. We drove to downtown every day (10 minutes) or went on a glorious hike up the mountain (30 min drive).

Close to town. Had everything you need. It's up in the mountain very pretty.

  • 5 of 5

Close to town. Had everything you need. It's up in the mountain very pretty. The house was close to most destinations such as the Biltmore estate. It was also close to downtown Asheville, and different daytrip excursions in the area. The house had all the necessities that you would need, it it was clean, and we would definitely stay there again.

Wonderful Home, With an Amazing Location!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent our 5th anniversary at this cabin, and it did not disappoint in the least. I will start with highlighting the things that made this cabin so perfect for us:

1. Location - It was only a few minutes down the mountain road, and you were in downtown Asheville. To be honest, we didn't drive into the city once. We found that Uber was able to drop us off anywhere in the downtown for $6-8, and with all the amazing breweries and food, this was the way to go. (On a side note, every driver we had was engaging and informative. Great ambassadors to the city.) You could also head the other direction, and get to the Blue Ridge Parkway very quickly. To be honest, the parkway seemed kind of boring after driving on the mountain corners by the house :) --- my FAVORITE part!

2. Amenities - The house had everything we needed to enjoy the occasional meal at home. The grill is probably near the end of it's life, but it actually cooked very well. The TV was a bit small for the distance from the couch to the wall, but it was appropriately sized for the living room area. Not a big deal, just something worth noting. The washer and dryer worked very well, and were conveniently located in the bathroom.

3. Comfort - The house was very modern, and the bed was comfortable. There were plenty of blankets and pillows in the house, and the A/C worked very well. The outside patio furniture was perfect for the size of the deck, and there were surprisingly very little bugs out there. It was a very comfortable house to be at both inside and out.

4. Cost - I think the house is priced very reasonably for the size and location. I spent more last year to stay in Candler, NC, and although that house was bigger, and offered a nicer view of the mountains, the location of this home really drives the value.

The only real complaint I have is with the driveway, but it wasn't that bad once we figured out which areas to avoid. This wouldn't be a problem for most, but we brought our sports car (Scion FR-S), so the low height, manual transmission, and rear wheel drive was a bit of a challenge on the gravel inclines and declines. We had no problem turning around in the driveway, but I think larger SUV's might find it a challenge. Again, this is a very minimal issue compared to how great everything else was.

In conclusion, this the 6th vacation home my wife and I have stayed at, and thanks the things I stated above, it was by far the most enjoyable! We'll be back in 2017!
