About the property

420 sq ft garage apartment only 3 miles from downtown

“Dash's Den” is a 420 sq ft one bedroom apartment located in the country but only 3 miles from downtown. It is a short ride to everything you want to do in the Asheville area, from wonderful dining, gorgeous hiking, and antiquing. Please let us know if you are bringing a dog. We have a $35 pet fee. The Biltmore estate is 15 minutes away. After a day of sightseeing and adventure, Dash's Den is a great place to call home. There is a fridge, an oven, a microwave oven, and an electric fry pan to cook small meals on. All small appliances, dishes, glasses and pots and pans are provided. There is also washer and dryer for your convenience. We have wireless internet (electronics other than computers may not work) and a TV (but no cable). The tv gets a couple of channels but we have a video library and dvd player for you to enjoy.

Our apartment has a living and dining area with a kitchenette and a bath with a shower. The bedroom has a queen size bed with a pillowtop mattress.

The apartment is a great place to relax after a day of exploring Asheville or as an alternative to a motel on a business trip.

A drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway in autumn highlights the beautiful peak colors. There are many festivals throughout the year for the whole family.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The place is bigger in person than pictures. Although the space is a converted garage you'd not be able to guess that once you're in. It looks and feels just like an apartment - spacious bedroom and bathroom, and a well organized kitchen/living/dining area. The place is fully furnished and well equipped. One of my concerns was the electric stove top/oven , but it did the job just fine. Unless you're planning to make a pot roast, you're set. Internet signal could be stronger but it's decent in the half of the apartment facing the main house. Bedroom mattress is on the softer side but still comfy. Bathroom was clean with good water pressure. Marilyn was promptly reachable, kind, and helpful. She even let us check out late. All in all, great value for what we paid.

Great location, friendly owners

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at Dash's Den. It was easy to find and a great location for getting around in Asheville. We landed late and arrived on a very cold night. We were so happy when we arrived and the heater was already on in the home. Thank you!!! The bed dipped a bit in the middle when my husband and I were in it, but it was otherwise comfortable, and the linens were super soft. Thank you for providing laundry supplies and general utensils! The wifi stopped working halfway through our stay, so that was a little frustrating. The owner's husband stopped by and provided us with some excellent restaurant suggestions. We tried a few and loved them!! Thank you for having us!!

Perfect Spot!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect spot for our short stay in Asheville. We were visiting our daughter and basically needed a place to sleep and shower. Dash's Den is extremely clean and located in a quiet neighborhood with quick and easy access to downtown. We didn't need to prepare any meals, but the kitchen appeared to have enough appliances to do simple cooking. Super easy check-in and check-out, plus quick refund of deposit. We will definitely stay here again.

Suits out needs ....

  • 4 of 5

This was our second stay at Dash's Den. The location of perfect for our needs. The suite is well equipped for a short or long stay. The bed is very soft (I prefer a firm bed), but we were comfortable.

The owners are very personable and accommodating.

We would recommend Dash's Den, and will probably stay there again, mainly because of its proximity to our Asheville family.

The owners are very nice and easy to work with.

  • 4 of 5

The unit is well kept, but should have been better stocked. We had to ask for another roll of toilet tissue, also some salt & pepper. He immediately produced the things requested.Dryer was not working, but a replacement had been ordered, and owner offered to dry our clothes. There is a mini drying rack on the wall near the washing machine. So, I used it. We felt safe, but the neighborhood is on the decline. My main complaint is the garage. It definitely is a plus to be able to park your car into a closed garage, but it was very cluttered. We only drive a Honda CRV, and walkway on both sides and in front were very limited. The place is modestly priced and centrally located. So, with the inconveniences we had, it was still worth it. ZR from Little Rock, AR
