You'll love: 90-second walk to Harris-Teeter, Trader Joe's & Whole Foods, 6-minute walk to downtown, 1-minute walk to High Five Coffee and Habitat Brewery, free on-site parking, from my a completely restored century-old home, 50-inch tvs, Sonos soundbar, deep tub with shower, cozy kitchenette with surround windows, screened-in front porch with hammocks. Perfect for a pair of solo travelers, two couples, well-mannered families or anyone who wants space. Your headquarters for Asheville adventures.
Location is key, and to get a homebase like this - the entire top floor with two bedrooms (two queen beds), one full private bathroom and kitchenette - makes Asheville all the more accessible and enjoyable.
Asheville's historic downtown is just a few blocks away - a six-minute leisurely walk via sidewalks along the same street, Broadway, where the property resides.
Whether it's a long three-day weekend or an extended stay, make the most of your time while in Asheville by quickly getting the fridge stocked at Whole Foods or Trader Joe's, just a 90-second walk, then jumpstart your day with a cup of coffee from High Five, one minute away. Afterward take a walk along the Reed Creek Greenway just two blocks down the street, which connects to the University of NC- Asheville's Botanical Gardens and campus.
In the kitchenette, you'll find a Ninja coffee maker , a toaster oven and a hot plate beneath the countertop. There's also a hot water heater for making tea and other hot beverages or food.
Parking is free and easy at the Avid Traveler's HQ, with off-street parking for up to three cars, directly behind the house.

I am an avid traveler. From 1980 through 1990, I bicycled across America, pedaled through Europe, island-hopped the South Pacific and flew into Indonesia.
After backpacking through Bali, bussing through Java, hopping a boat to Singapore and crossing Malaysia to Thailand, I flew into Burma, tramped to Dhaka and endured a 32-hour train ride from calamitous Calcutta to bustling Bombay.
From there, I hopped a plane for Greece and traveled to Switzerland before returning home, where I settled, quite naturally, into a career of travel writing, with a bachelor's degree in journalism from UNC-Chapel Hill.
I've penned a few books, notably, "Remembering Charles Kuralt," a biography that Publisher's Weekly called "a sweet and lovely homage, a welcome commemoration."
I have spent the last 10 years of my life splitting my time between Sweden and Asheville. I love both places. Asheville slightly tips the scale, however, in terms of its beauty and spirit - and its delicious microbrews and world-class cuisine.
I love long walks at Biltmore Estate, rugged mountain bike rides at Bent Creek, sipping a cappuccino at High Five Coffee Shop, where you can feel the creative vibe. And I love my home. I hope you will too.
