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 $50 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.

Skiiing and zipline within a 20 minute drive. For the shopper in your group Asheville has a host of antique shops, boutiques, art galleries, and crafts. Evening activities include diverse dining options, movies, live theatre, live music, or just walking through Asheville's lively downtown filled with street performers and art. The Biltmore estate is breathtaking in summer and glorious when decorated for Christmas. Chimney Rock Park is worth the 35 minute drive. Wonderful hiking and beautiful views. 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.

Clean and Convenient Garage Apartment

  • 4 of 5

Very nice place and within a few miles of downtown Asheville. This garage apartment is clean and uncluttered with all the conveniences needed to stay a day or a week. The owners are friendly and helpful to answer questions or recommend a restaurant! The only negative is the mattress which definitely needs to be replaced.

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!!

Why Marilyn Del Vecchio chose Asheville

Love the property and it's on the same street as our family. We love to share our apartment with Asheville visitors.

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.
