About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

You'll relish the peaceful serenity of this beautifully appointed 1-bedroom mountainside apartment while appreciating its convenience to South Asheville's shopping, restaurants, and entertainment. Located on the lower level of our home in an upscale development, we offer our guests absolute privacy with the assurance that we are closeby should any need or question arise.

There's nothing better than a good night's sleep in the mountains, and you're sure to sleep like a baby on your comfortable king bed with 100% Egyptian cotton bedding, laundered without dyes or perfumes. The bedroom, which can be darkened even in the daytime, has it's own TV, a recliner, and the convenience of a large en suite bathroom with tub/shower, plush luxury bath towels, and hair dryer.

Whether you plan to cook gourmet meals or just make morning coffee during your visit, you'll appreciate the fully equipped kitchen, featuring all brand-new appliances, including dishwasher, microwave, icemaker, and coffee maker. The kitchen's bar area seats 3 and opens into the spacious living room, where the plush sofa offers a great place for a nap or for watching your favorite TV show.

Your private entrance features a 10 x 10 deck with majestic mountainside views and fresh air amidst a rhododendron grove. It's a great place for breakfast before a hike or shopping excursion, and it's the perfect spot for a drink in the afternoon before heading out to dinner at a nearby restaurant, to a concert or the theatre.

A private washer/dryer and iron in the apartment make laundry convenient for those planning longer visits. You'll also appreciate the central AC/Heat, ceramic tile floors, ceiling fans, Wifi (please note that our DSL service -- although the fastest available -- accommodates only limited UP-load speed), and 2 flatscreen satellite TVs offering all major pay/premium stations.

Those wanting a place to get away from their everyday routine will appreciate the fact that cell-phone reception here on the mountain can be limited.

Located within 15 minutes of downtown Asheville, Biltmore Estate, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Asheville Airport, Asheville Mall, and many other major places of interest, this mountainside refuge offers the best of the area's beauty and conveniences.

Keywords: Beautifully appointed 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath apartment. Private entrance in the lower level of our home.

About Tim

Jeff is an elementary school teacher and Tim is a professional musician and small business owner. We've been happy together for 15 and enjoy hiking, theatre, travel, food, and spending time with friends and family.

Tim purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Tim chose Asheville

We have always loved the Asheville area because of its natural beauty, its emphasis on the arts, and its concern with the environment. We were fortunate enough to make a permanent move to the area in 2005. We love our home and its location here, and we are happy to be able to share a part of it with those who are looking to enjoy a vacation in the Asheville area.

What makes this apartment unique

The best part of our property is the combination of privacy and an 'away from it all' feeling in a beautiful mountain setting while at the same time having access to all the conveniences we need within a 5-10 minute drive.

Beautiful getaway close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful 1/1 is nestled in the hills yet only 3 miles from the main road that takes you to Downtown, Biltmore, south to Sierra Nevada Brewery, and minutes from the Blue Ridge parkway. The apartment has everything you need, with complimentary snacks, juice water and a bottle of wine. Very comfortable king size bed, I usually do not sleep well in hotels, but did just fine here. Would definitely come back.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place for a couple to stay. It's private and comfortable. Everything is "big enough" and it has a full, well-stocked kitchen. Even if staying a couple weeks, I would heartily recommend it. We were visiting someone at the Givens retirement community 10 minutes away and this place was perfect for us and our dogs.

My only warning is the weather/vehicle situation. We were there in late December and the roads were fortunately clear for all 4 days. If there is snow and ice then I would suggest 4wd because the road and driveway are up/down a steep mountain grade.

Awesome property!

  • 5 of 5

This property is clean, well appointed with all the necesities plus some very thoughtful touches. Tim leaves a basket full of snacks, waters, juices, even a bottle of wine!

Upon arrival there is a laminated sheet with house rules, instructions, and contact info. Tim is available for anything you need and responds immediately to any question or request.

The location of the property is great! Provides great privacy yet it is close to shopping, downtown, the Biltmore, anything you wish to see or do.

This was my second visit to this property and will certainly not be the last as it has everything you could possibly ask for all wrapped in one!

Thank you Tim for another great experience!!

Dark winding mountain road

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was clean and comfortable . Had a small problem with tv but Jeff responded immediately and reset the service .

If you plan to bring a dog be aware that due to location there isn’t much yard area to walk a pet especially at night, unless you are willing to walk down a steep driveway and along a very very dark mountain road . Returning to the apartment , after sunset , can be harrowing for those that are not use to a pitch black winding one way mountain road. Once you make your way down the mountain, to the main road , the commercial area of south Asheville is very close by and convenient. In summary, if you like secluded Mountain View’s this is the place for you.

Owner's Response: Those of us who live in the Asheville area are amused by tourists who come to the mountains and are surprised by hillsides yards, dark nights without street lights (where you can see the stars!), and long, winding, narrow roads. These are typical of the innumerable mountainside residences like ours. For guests who prefer flatter land, well lit areas, and wide roads (but less privacy and little natural surroundings), we recommend limiting your search to accommodations that are in town. Over the years, we have had many, many guests traveling with dogs who have had no problems with walking their pets around our home. Owners with pets who have peculiar toiletry habits may want to take that into consideration before booking. And while our property is located on a beautiful and lush mountainside, it is far from remote. Almost every necessary convenience is located within 10 minutes of our driveway and downtown is only 15 minutes away.

Cozy and just as pictured

  • 4 of 5

This is a cozy little apartment with everything you need. Tim was available for any questions we had. It is in a mountainous subdivision but very close to shopping and restaurants. We were not disappointed and would recommend it for a couple.
