Asheville House Rental Photos and Description

2/3 bedroom in rural setting 3 miles from downtown

Chestnut Hill is a two/three bedroom home located in a country setting yet only 3 miles from downtown. It is a short ride to everything you want to do in the Asheville area, including wonderful dining, gorgeous hiking, and antiquing. The Biltmore estate is 15 minutes away. After a day of sight seeing and adventure, Chestnut Hill is a great place to call home. Here you can cook a meal in the fully appointed large kitchen, watch TV, go on the internet, or just relax.

Our home has a large living room with comfy leather couches, large dining area with seating for 6, a fully equipped kitchen and a tiled bath with a tub/shower combination. The entire home has hardwood floors and is professionally decorated. The walls are decorated with antique theatre posters

The large master bedroom suite has a queen size bed with a pillowtop mattress and a 1/2 bath. The attached sitting room (can be used as a third bedroom) has a daybed with trundle that can be pulled out for two twin beds and a flat screen tv. It also has a door to the outside porch.

The large second bedroom also has a queen size bed with sliders going to the outside porch

The home has plenty of parking, is located on fenced land, and is a great place to unwind after a day exploring Asheville or hiking nearby mountain trails. The grounds are full of organically grown fruit trees, nuts, berries and grapes. If you are visiting when they are ripe you are welcome to enjoy them. There is an attached apartment that is partially beneath the house.

Asheville boasts activities which will satisfy all in your travel party. Hiking trails and outdoor activities such as horseback riding, canoeing, and whitewater rafting are within easy driving distance. Skiing and a zipline tour are 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 energetic 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 20 minute drive. Wonderful hiking and beautiful views await you in every direction. 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.

About Marilyn Del Vecchio

We are a family owned and operated property. We have three places in Asheville and are proud of our warm and friendly vacation homes.

Marilyn Del Vecchio purchased this house in 2010

Why Marilyn Del Vecchio chose Asheville Area

We bought this property because our children live in Asheville (son Sam and family live next door). My son owns Alternative Allergy Solutions in Asheville specializing in acupuncture and allergies. My daughter is a playwright and actress and managing director of The Magnetic Theatre in Asheville

What makes this house unique

The numerous fruit trees, berry bushes and nut trees grown organically on the property by our son are wonderful.

Excellent Rental Home

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful home to stay while on vacation or for a long term housing need. It was extremely clean, nice furniture , and offers WiFi an cable TV. It has one full bath and a half bath and 3 bedrooms. The kitchen was well stocked for an rental house and the bath has plenty of bath towels . It was very to close to the Baltimore House and the downtown area for touring but was in a quite neighborhood for peace and quite. We loved the location and would go back in heartbeat. I would recommend this to anyone the price was great and the location and home were wonderful.

Great place and location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay there and would recommend it to anyone! I was a little worried when I found out that there was a downstairs apartment, but it's really only under a portion of the house and want a problem at all.

As far as the location, it was close to everything from Biltmore to various parks and downtown, not to mention the vibrant west Asheville scene itself.

My son and I had a great time picking blackberries in the mornings, he thought that was just the coolest thing.

We had a lovely girls weekend. There were four of us and it was very comfortable. We each had our own bed which was a bonus. It was an $8 Uber ride which took less than 10 minutes to get downtown.

College Tour Trip

  • 4 of 5

We were in the area to tour UNC-Asheville with our daughter. This house is just a short drive to town, but with the large yard you get that country living feel. The house was very clean and offered all the amenities that you may need. We also enjoyed picking blackberries and blueberries on the property, YUM!!! If our daughter decides to attend UNC-A we will stay there again.

Great big house close to downtown Asheville

  • 5 of 5

We had a very pleasant experience staying at this house. It is very close to downtown and everything else, a cheap uber ride if one does not feel like driving. I went with two of my friends and my dog, and we all had ample place in the house. We all had our separate rooms and beds. There are two toilets and one big bathroom with a tub. A fenced in garden for my puppy to walk around. Everything was clean and orderly. Communication and the whole transaction went very smooth. One minor recommendation I'd have to improve this rental would be to add some other basics like shampoo and maybe coffee (they had towels and soap and some tea), but other than that excellent stay!

Weekend stay

  • 4 of 5

We were only in Asheville for a long weekend but thoroughly enjoyed our stay. House was spacious for the 3 of us. It was also close to most of the places we knew we wanted to see. Dogs loved it also. Would stay again.
