Come stay in an awesome 1955 Spartan Royal Manor-the Queen of Vintage Campers! The Silver Bettie is equipped with all of the modern comforts with decorative tributes to the 1950's atomic era! The Bettie also features a brand new 4 person round hot tub :-)
Our Spartan was manufactured in 1955 by the Spartan Aircraft Company who made their start making war planes during WWII. After the war Spartan began making these huge luxury rolling caravan's. The first Spartan Camper was made in 1948 and the last Spartan was manufactured in the early 60's before the company closed it's doors for good in Tulsa Oklahoma.
The Bettie is similar to an airstream, but with MUCH more headroom and space inside and with even more history! The Spartan manor has one private bedroom with a very comfortable new memory foam mattress and a living room with a futon to sleep a total of four guests comfortably.
The Spartan has a bathroom with a regular flush toilet and a roomy shower with gorgeous newly tiled subway tiles and a vanity with a round pedestal bowl sink. We removed the small water heater that was original to this trailer and replaced it with a 40 gallon tank- so you will never run out of hot water! :-D
The Camper is stationed on private property in a neighborhood that is just 5 miles from downtown Asheville and only two miles from Asheville's most popular area, Haywood rd in west Asheville! A beautiful custom metal fence makes the Spartan yard your own private vintage paradise! Have breakfast and coffee on the deck while lounging in retro tulip chairs.
The inside of the Spartan has everything you need to be happy and comfortable. Comfy linens and sweet vintage quilts and bedding along with towels are provided.
The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to cook including a restored 1950's Philco refrigerator to keep your groceries and drinks cold in style. We have had the sink, cooktop, and refrigerator refinished in a fun vintage turquoise and red! The cabinets are stocked with cups and glasses from the 50's! Enjoy eating your meals on the cool vintage formica table with a boomerang top and retro metal edging (even the legs were refinished to match the refinished turquoise kitchen sink and cooktop- it's all about the details!)
There is a brand new AC unit to make sure you stay cool too and heaters to keep you toasty!
Speaking of toasty....enjoy sipping on a cold beer (or soda pop) around the fire pit at night, while taking in the stars or roasting some marshmallows on a stick :-)
We love vintage campers and have spent over a year lovingly restoring and remodeling this amazing vintage glamper-she's come a long way and the results are phenomenal! We know you are going to love the Bettie as much as we do!
LOCATION: We are just 2 miles from Haywood rd-Asheville's hippest part of town! Search "On Haywood" to see Haywood roads cool breweries, many restaurants, and live entertainment options!
Please note that the Bettie is on it's own chunk of private property that is visually separated from the rest of our property with a 8ft fence- we live on the property but you won't see us beyond our initial greeting unless you need anything :-) The Bettie has a beautiful new 8ft tall fence so you can enjoy your privacy whether hanging inside or lounging on the porch outside of the Bettie! The fence is not completely enclosed around the Bettie and is open where the driveway enters and on the far side of the Bettie leading down to the fire pit area.
The Neighborhood surrounding the Bettie is typical of rural appalachia. You will see mobile homes and other houses on the half mile long road that leads to our private drive. We know all of our neighbors by name and they are all very nice friendly folks. The Spartan property itself is private, but we want guests to know that though private, this camper is not on a mountain in the middle of nowhere :-) We have over three acres of property here and we think it's a really beautiful place for being so close to town! We currently have two other fully outfitted bell tents that we rent on the opposite far corners of the property and are listing with airbnb. We also have a very fun outfitted Tent cabin and our 1965 Airstream!
We respond to bookings and inquiries in less than 24 hours, but we respond to almost all of our inquiries in less than an hour, and we will send you the Silver Bettie instructions as soon as the reservation is made :-)
Please feel free to contact us with any questions about the Silver Bettie or Asheville!
The entire Bettie and the area surrounding it are yours for your stay :-) Enjoy the Bettie's own private hot tub and fire pit area.
We are available if guests need us :)
Please note again that we can not allow dogs or any pets - not even our own 3 doggies are allowed in our vintage campers- thanks for understanding!
We ask that guests please respect the Bettie- there is aboslutely NO SMOKING inside the camper OR inside the hot tub :-) - You are welcome to smoke outside however, and we only ask that guests who do smoke -do so outside of the Bettie and that they pack out their butts with them- please do not leave your butts in the fire pit! :-)
CHECK IN: Check in is self serve. We are available to be reached by phone or text between 9am and 9pm. Check in Instructions are sent to guests upon booking. You are welcome to arrive at any time at all and, although we enjoy meeting our guests during their visits, we do not need to meet you at check in. Note- we can be harder to find after dark -we advise you to arrive before dusk if you can.
PLEASE CHECK OUT ON TIME BY 11AM unless you have arranged a later check out with us in advance and we have agreed it is possible.
WASH YOUR OWN DISHES- we have arranged for such a low cleaning fee because we have multiple rentals- our place is impeccably clean when our guests arrive :) we get charged an additional $15 when dishes are left in the sink. We do not want to have to raise our cleaning fee- please either wash your own dishes, or leave $15 cash for the cleaning service- thank you for your help!
NO CHILDREN IN THE HOT TUB: There are no children under the age of 12 years old allowed in the Hot Tub at ANY time. This means that even if adults are present, there are to be no children in the hot tub during your stay. This is because of safety and liability reasons- so there are no exception to this rule. Thank you for your cooperation.
PLEASE LEAVE THE COVER ON THE HOT TUB whenever you are not in it. This helps keep leaves and debri from falling in the hot tub and also helps with the $$ energy bill - so we appreciate it :)
Our number one rule at Asheville Glamping? Have a blast!
We LOVE alternative dwellings and micro housing. We ourselves live in a 270 sq ft vintage camper with our three dogs. We have really been enjoying the opportunity to share our land with guests and have met so many amazing people through hosting on AIRBNB. Together, we own three pieces of land in Asheville. One has just the yurt alone on it. Our other property is home to Bettie and also has several private campsites. It's nice to be able to offer people a range of options- from camping on the cheap to enjoying a luxurious stay in our yurt or restored vintage trailer! We are both very friendly and active people and we do all of the work on both properties ourselves :-)
