This Arts 'n Crafts inspired retreat was created to feel peaceful, warm, cozy, and quiet. Everyone who visits comments on the perfect feel of this space. It is literally five minutes from everything! I adore children but this is for adults only. Please be respectful of the no pet policy. There are folks highly allergic to even hypoallergenic pets. Thank you!
This space is for my Airbnb guests only. No visitors, please.
Beautiful Arts 'n Crafts Style Cottage!
I have a beautiful 1 bedroom private house with 1 full bath for adults only. There is also a futon in the loft space for two adult guests if needed. Every once in awhile I will offer a minimum stay of one night if there are no other nights available around it.
Why choose my space:
--The "feel" of the space is one of peaceful quiet and thoughtful design. You will feel it as soon as you walk in.
--Everything is new, cozy and comfortable.
--Along with being a writer, providing an exceptional guest experience is part of my livelihood. I thoroughly enjoy meeting new people, getting them acquainted with the beauty and fun of Asheville, and providing any level of connection with which you are comfortable. I'm as available as you need me to be. I can check in daily through text/email/phone or step back completely until you ask for assistance.
--You can walk to the Blue Ridge Parkway and hike the Mountain to Sea trail every morning.
--The house is exactly 6.5 miles (7 minutes) from all the downtown restaurants, music, breweries and activities.
--The quiet, lovely little neighborhood is on a cul-de-sac type loop with little to no traffic.
--On the less congested east side of Asheville...away from the hustle-bustle when you are ready to bring a close to your day.

-Tucked away in the woods (my friends all comment on how quiet it is here)
-Tucked away but minutes from everything
-6.5 miles from downtown
The house is located on a small, wooded, looped street, so it is very quiet with little traffic. There is a walking trail to the Blue Ridge Parkway and we get bears walking through the neighborhood from time to time. I am about 5 miles from the Biltmore Estate, 25 minutes from the airport, 7 minutes from downtown, 2 minutes from I-40 and 240 to get anywhere easily, a 2 minute drive to the Blue Ridge Parkway near the Visitors' Center and 2 minutes from Shoji Spa overlooking the Parkway. Asheville has the best weather, music, breweries, wine shops, restaurants, art studios, festivals, outdoor events and wildlife. Everything is here! I love it!
There is an in-law unit attached in the back and underneath the loft space. Please be respectful of the privacy of each space. Also, please keep shoes downstairs to keep noise level down for those staying in the in-law suite below. If you would like to rent both spaces, please get in touch to discuss. Thank you!
Some of my favorite spots (food, music, hiking, etc.) are in my Guidebook here on the site, but I will email you a more comprehensive list after booking. The list is also in the guest binder in the house.
Guests have access to everything except the back deck. That area is reserved for the in-law unit.
I'm as available as you would like me to be. Some folks like to meet upon arrival and some like to just go it alone with a check-in text here and there. I'm fine either way. I do email you a list of my favorite things prior to arrival to help you with planning and this list is also in the welcome binder in the house. Please ask me for any guidance during your stay in any way that suits your personal style.
There is a private in-law unit in the back and under the loft area that is also rented so please respect each other's space. As with any space located above an upstairs space, the folks below may hear your foot traffic. I ask guests to keep shoes downstairs so that footsteps are light. Most people who visit Asheville tend to be out and about all day and go to bed at a reasonable hour so it's usually not an issue. Everyone has been very gracious and appreciative of each other in this hosting community. I'm lucky to be a part of it!
Please no smoking inside the house or on the property. Kindly keep shoes downstairs. I adore pets in my own home but I do not allow pets in my guest space to keep things extra clean and odor/allergen free. No drugs, drama and/or loud/late night parties. The house is located in a "could-hear-a-pin-drop" quiet neighborhood next to the Blue Ridge Parkway and my neighbors are sweet, low-key folks. This space is for my Airbnb guests only. No visitors, please. Thank you for your thoughtfulness!
Welcome to Asheville! Relax and enjoy my cozy place!
I moved to Asheville 10 years ago from San Francisco and have never looked back. I grew up in the South and missed being among the dogwoods, thunderstorms, and BBQ! I have traveled the world and have never known a place more friendly and creative. I'm a writer, musician, teacher, traveler, and hiker...from the John Muir Trail to the Annapurnas and now the Blue Ridge.
Please come cozy up in my place and stay awhile!
