Guests will have full access to the 1bd apartment and a parking space at the end of the driveway. There is a small outdoor sitting area near the apartment door also available for guests. The garage/workshop space and the main house are off-limits.

Interaction with guests

We will be present on the property during your stay. We will be available for questions/concerns about the property or for suggestions/recommendations about our town.

The neighborhood

We love our location! Our immediate area has grocery stores, the UNCA campus, trails, and botanical garden (free), greenways, restaurants. A short walk takes you into downtown and all that has to offer. If you bring or rent a bike, you can easily access the River Arts District, Grove Park. A quick drive takes you to Biltmore Estate, Village and south Asheville. That's all within 10-15 minutes. If you want to drive a bit further -- we have loads of suggestions for hiking or sightseeing!

Getting around

Downtown is easily accessible by walking or driving (there are loads of public parking garages downtown). Off-street parking is included with our listing. If you are flying in and not renting a car, we recommend you use an Uber or take an airport shuttle into town.

Other things to note

We provide off street parking in our driveway at the orange cone. However, if you are uncomfortable backing into or out of driveways with sometimes low visibility, we encourage you to park in the street. There are usually at least 3 open spots directly in front of our home.

Gorgeous home!

  • 5 of 5

Such an adorable space and super close to downtown. The owner left some local treats and made the place feel like home. We really enjoyed it!

It's perfect

  • 5 of 5

The pictures are perfect replicas of what the house looks like. We couldn't have been more pleased and really enjoyed staying there. The home is close to everything. The Biltmore, the Grovewood Inn, the mountains, the arboretum, UNC Asheville, and downtown. Perfect location and quiet too. Very well appointed and equipped.

Perfect Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Carriage House! It is comfortable, clean, and well decorated. It still has the smell of a new house!

It has the perfect space for a couple. Also, the hosts are easy to communicate with and very friendly. Plus, you have the bonus of being within walking distance of downtown Asheville!

Beautiful, comfortable space close enough to walk & far enough to unwind.

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in the carriage house for a recent trip that combined business & pleasure. The pictures do not do the space justice; it is super cute, roomy and more comfortable than I expected. We made one night an early one and just chilled out on the couch & enjoyed complementary streaming services. How nice! You could easily cook/drink in; kitchen is well appointed and coffee well-stocked!

The walk to downtown is about 20 mins - it goes by quickly and is totally safe, with sidewalk access the entire way. Or, it's just a $6 Uber ride away. It was nice to get away and spend our evenings in a quiet neighborhood, with lots of trees and plants that made for a relaxed vibe. FYI The driveway is steep; you might consider parking on the street, but we were able to navigate/fit our GMC Acadia just fine. And, if you were wondering, even though the property is shared, there's enough privacy.

Looking forward to my/our next stay; so much better than a hotel! And Jen was a relaxed but very responsive and friendly host. Thank you for making this great rental available!

Romantic Getaway was everything that we could've asked for.

  • 5 of 5

Romantic Getaway was a perfectly sized space for our weekend getaway. It was a great little space and the decor was fantastic. Despite there being 10 inches of snow on the ground, we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. We were within about a mile and a half of downtown.

Our hosts were great and very accommodating. I would absolutely return to Romantic Getaway and would recommend it to all.
