This is the ultimate location to enjoy a true Asheville experience by being immersed in the history of Asheville, and to savor the thriving culinary and brewery scenes, galleries and local artisans just a short stroll away.

Besides the fantastic location and historical charm, 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.

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.

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.

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 5 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 to learn more about what we offer!

Perfect Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

I can ditto what others have said...the perfect cottage in the perfect location. Close to everything but so peaceful! It's the little touches that make the difference and Liz has thought of them all. My favorite thing was sitting on the back porch with coffee in the morning or wine in the evening, looking at the lovely garden. Truly a wonderful stay! Oh and next time we will bring our dog. So great that it is pet-friendly but rest assured- it is spotlessly clean and there are no signs of any pets having stayed there. I love that because as much as I love animals, I love a clean house too!

Quiet Neighborhood with Great Access

  • 5 of 5

Liz (owner) was extremely responsive and great to work with on everything. House was very cute and extremely clean with wonderful updates but keeps the charm. Walkable to shops and restaurants. Very pet friendly with a nice side yard. If going to Asheville, we would highly recommend.

wonderful cottage

  • 5 of 5

There were two couples that stayed for a long weekend at this wonderful cottage. It was very clean and had everything we needed for our stay. It was a short walk to town, which is exactly what we wanted. Would definitely stay here again.

Heavenly Stay at this Darling Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our group of girls was celebrating 50 years of being best friends! We arrived at the cottage and were in complete awe of all the fabulous details and design of this home. The home had everything to make our stay memorable & comfortable to include all the amenities carefully considered to provide guests with everything they need during the stay. In addition, the décor was fabulous. I took several pictures and have some ideas I would like to do in my own home. Everywhere we looked there were things to inspire and the owners obviously love this home very much to make it so welcoming and comfortable for others. We also loved the quiet neighborhood. Very peaceful setting with outside landscaping that every gardener would envy.

Thank you Liz and Ben for providing everything as advertised and more!! God Bless You!

PS: I would like to know more about the paint color in the bathroom. I loved it and may paint my entire house with that color!!
