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. 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!

Very nice cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Location:

This place is up in the hills, but really not far from downtown. Uber drivers made it up there easily. You access the cottage from a gravel road and there's parking for about two cars max. It is a bit tricky to turn around once you've parked if other cars are parked in the spots. Large trucks might have an issue. If needed, you can always back out!

The cottage:

Simple but nice! The front porch wraps around and looks out upon the woods-a great view for a morning coffee! Inside there's a small living room with a couch and two chairs-at least one chair was a poang from Ikea, a personal favorite of mine.

Three sleeping areas: two bedrooms and an upstairs loft. I slept in the loft on the futon, which was comfy. I also had a closet up there.

They have towels and a washer and dryer. Basic kitchen, stocked with the essentials. Don't expect to cook Thanksgiving dinner here, but plan on having what you need for simple meals. Coffee maker, dishwasher.

I would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Asheville!

Wonderful respite close to downtown

  • 5 of 5

This property was a delight. It was so peaceful and only a few minutes drive to all of the downtown stuff of Asheville. It was stocked with all of the tools we could need to make meals, and the beds and linens were very comfortable. The loft area was really nice, and we loved the little extra touches that the owner provided to make our stay more enjoyable! It's very nice, modern, and incredibly relaxing. If we had stayed longer, we would have certainly taken advantage of the grill and wraparound porch. We would definitely stay at this property again. We loved exploring Asheville and the surrounding areas, and we loved going back to a cozy home in the mountains at night. It was truly wonderful!

Wonderful mountain retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed her in April 2016 and this property couldn't be faulted. It was very clean and beautifully maintained.

Everything worked and it was very comfortable.

I would recommend this to anyone wanting to visit Ashville.
