  • In love with Asheville!


    We enjoyed Asheville so much and the home’s location was perfect. Easy drive to everything, but in a quiet wooded setting. The host was friendly and helpful. We didn’t cook any meals, but the kitchen looked well equipped. We would stay again.

  • Cute house, convenient to attractions


    The house is very nicely decorated with a bit of funky folk-art here and there and is in a quiet neighborhood. It is just one exit up from Biltmore and Biltmore Village, so that was super convenient. We will probably stay again for future visits to Asheville.
