I love welcoming people to Asheville and have been sharing this fine city for decades with friends. I love good food, the beauty in art and the natural world and enjoy hiking as often as I can. My favorite restaurants and galleries are listed in the apartment to guide guests with their planning.
Listening to birdsong is a daily delight here with over 20 species of birds on the property. While I enjoy offering hospitality, I appreciate the quiet privacy here and respect the privacy of my guests. I respond quickly to guests' questions and needs while giving them space to nestle in, rest and renew.
