Contradictorily central to Asheville while also being out of the way. This spot is tucked away on a small reservoir bounded by a dam. This was a great place to come to Asheville for an event so I could both experience Asheville, and not be handcuffed by the typical scene. Close to the Whole Foods and a few other convenient shops like the Lowes hardware and Sears makes this a super convenient location for running a few side errands, if needed, and making good use of the unit's included grill and kitchen. Clean, comfortable, and quiet, the landlords are quite easy-going and personable. Altogether worthwhile, whether you rent this unit or its upstairs counterpart, "Lakeside Garden Cottage".
A little piece of heaven. If you enjoy spending time relaxing outside in a hammock, canoeing on a beautiful lake or walking on trails next to a gentle stream this place is a dream. The cottage is tucked away behind the main house, on a quiet street, in a charming neighborhood. The inside of the cottage was surprisingly roomy. I really enjoyed watching the birds feed outside of the living/dining room window. The utensils in the kitchen were substantial enough to make some meals there. FYI, bring your own paper towels and trash bags. There is also a Whole Foods about 5 minutes driving distance, very convenient. The bed was very comfortable, although I brought my own pillow, I'm kind of a pillow snob. The owners were friendly but respected our privacy. I will definitely book it again when I return to Asheville.
We stayed for 5 nights in September 2014 & found the apartment comfortable and the location very quiet & peaceful.
I am guessing the house was built in the 70's?
There was plenty of room for the 2 of us & it had everything we needed in the kitchen & elsewhere.
The location is very handy to central Asheville & the GPS showed many of the Cafe's & shops we were looking for to be within 3 miles of the apartment.
The owners, Tama & Allison, were friendly and helpful if we needed something, & kind of melted into the background otherwise.
The Apartment is the downstairs part of a 2 story dwelling located on the side of a slope surrounded by trees & bush. The Lake is up a short drive. The view from the lounge is primarily trees & bush and quite tranquil.
There were people staying in the Cottage above but we did not notice them.
We would stay here again. Staying there was a bit like putting on a comfortable pair of slippers.
On our first visit to Asheville we were fortunate to find this peaceful place to stay. The 1-br condo has a picture window that shows a green forest with a full bird feeder outside. There is dock on the small lake and one can canoe or use the row boat. It's a convenient location to about anything in Asheville.
We really lucked out when we found this quaint little bungalow. I don't think we could've found a more accommodating and convenient location in Asheville. We hadn't anticipated the severe weather that cut our trip a day short, but our hosts were very helpful in ensuring that we weren't snowed in indefinitely. We look forward to our return trip.
