About the property

10 Minute Walk To Downtown, Off Street Parking, Dogs Welcome

This historic cottage can't get any closer to downtown! Besides the fantastic location, what sets our property apart from others is our attention to detail, passion for hospitality, and professional culinary training. We think of everything so you don't have to! Arrive to your refrigerator stocked with groceries, or your favorite bottle of wine. Celebrate an occasion with specialty house made baked goods, or a local NC cheese board, or treat yourself to a relaxing night in with a meal cooked by a private chef. Let us know what your vision of the perfect vacation is, and we can make it happen.

Bedrooms have built in closets with ample storage space for luggage, clothing and personal items to be stored away. The spacious bathroom features a full size tub and shower, storage space, plush towels and all organic, cruelty free toiletries. The central living room offers a great space for relaxing on the leather couch, watching the game on the mounted flat screen HD television, or playing cards at the coffee table. Additionally there is a dining table and chairs to enjoy a quiet meal in. The kitchen, situated at the back of the house off the living room, is fully equipped with up to date appliances, tools, and service-ware. There are 3 porches where you can enjoy the fresh mountain air and sweet neighborhood setting. Sip wine on the front porch and watch the world go by, or enjoy a private breakfast on the back porch.

This is the ultimate location for enjoying the city's thriving culinary and entertainment scenes. Enjoy shopping, gourmet dining, and dozens of art galleries all just a stroll away.

About Liz Reinhardt

We fell in love with Asheville after a weekend trip here. We moved 2 weeks later, leaving New York City in the rearview and headed for the Blue Ridge mountains! We have called Asheville home for 4 years now! We take pride in our property and our city, and want to make sure our guests have a truly memorable experience.

Liz Reinhardt purchased this house in 2012

Why Liz Reinhardt chose Asheville

The character of the cottage, combined with the perfect location made this property a hole in one. You can enjoy the entertainment, culture, and libations downtown has to offer, and still have the privacy and peace of a quaint neigborhood.

What makes this house unique

When you stay here you feel as if you're back in time, but with all of the modern comforts and conveniences. The character and comfort that the cottage exudes is what captivated us, and we hope you feel the same way when you step in.

We also provide personalized culinary services to take your vacation to the next level. Visit elegantlysimpleretreats.com to learn more about what we offer!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The cottage was so adorable and in immaculate condition. It was perfect for me, my husband, my 2 year old son and our 70lb dog!! We were all super comfortable and had a very memorable time!

Adorable Cottage in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Our party of four adults and a dog was absolutely thrilled with our stay. The cottage was everything we hoped it would be and more. It was clean, comfortable beautifully decorated. The owner left special touches for us to make our stay memorable. The beds were very comfortable. We also loved the location! It was a very easy walk to downtown. There is a back porch and two front porches. We enjoyed breakfasts on the back porch and late night drinks on the front porch. The neighborhood has lots of beautiful historic homes which made dog walks very enjoyable. Asheville is very dog friendly with lots of places within walking distance to eat outside with your dog. It is obvious that the property owners are experienced in making sure the guests have a pleasant stay. There was simply no room for improvement. 5 Stars all the way!

Liz has transformed this Historic House into a beautiful Historic HOME! The home is exactly as it appears on this website. Of course Asheville has so much to offer, but staying at Liz's home made our visit the best! Highly recommended for all!

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here last 4th . We had trouble with VRBO letting us leave a review but better late than never!

This house is super cute! Great location-close to downtown and mountains. We walked in to downtown almost everyday for at least 1 meal. It was an easy walk to 4th festival and to watch fireworks and the best part was no traffic to get stuck in on the way home. Close access to hike, kayak or tour local breweries.

Owners are very nice and have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Asheville and this cottage was one of the reasons! The house is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The location right next to downtown was perfect for walking to restaurants, breweries, and shops. We also enjoyed exploring the beautiful historic surrounding neighborhood. I highly recommend this cottage and we will definitely be back!
