Large art-filled suite in West Asheville has four rooms. A spacious bedroom, sitting room, kitchen and bath with private entrance. The suite occupies the entire downstairs of our home on a quiet street.
Within walking distance of Haywood Road and a short drive to downtown Asheville's great restaurants, breweries, art districts, and the Biltmore Estate.
You're also close to great seasonal outdoor activities like rafting, hiking, biking, fly fishing, skiing, or cruising the Blue Ridge Parkway.
Come enjoy a quiet retreat on an acre of land at the end of a cul-de-sac with a large beautiful yard that you are welcome to enjoy. Smith Mill Creek runs for 1000 feet along it's edge and we have forested lots at both ends. Yet you are only a half mile from a local brewery and in easy walking distance to many of the locals favorite haunts on Haywood Road in West Asheville. You have a private entrance, driveway parking, while enjoying close proximity to the wonderful restaurants, breweries, scenic views and outdoor adventures that make Asheville such a unique and cherished destination.
Your space is private, but you are welcome to use other aspects of our property as well. It is a nice place to walk, practice chipping your golf ball or throw a frisbee. You may use our corn hole boards when the weather permits. There are two fire pits on our property for relaxation and conversation. One is located in our pergola. The larger fire pit is in our back yard. At night you may enjoy lounging on our deck with the tiki torches lit.
The upstairs is our living space. We are very social and may invite you up for a visit, but we also will respect your privacy and only enter your space when invited or needed.
We have two dogs. One is a Long-haired Chihuahua and the other is a Labrador Retriever. The little one has never known a lap she did not like! The big boy will bark at you until he meets you then is gentle as a lamb. They are indoor dogs mostly and we keep them upstairs. We do not allow them to go downstairs into the apartment at all.
West Asheville has been in a renaissance for the last fifteen years. It is now one of the most desirable neighborhoods to live in in all of Asheville. It is home to three breweries, two of the best breakfast places that you will find anywhere, as well as many other great restaurants, stores, pubs and music venues. The street is mostly level, so it's a great place to just stroll around and enjoy.
The City of Asheville proper is on as many top ten lists as any city in the country. Surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains, Asheville has been a tourist getaway for over a hundred years - just because of the scenery. But this small city is far more than that. It is a bastion of great art, culture, and friendly people and now is a leader in craft beer! And of course we have the Biltmore Estate which draws visitors from all over the world.
The apartment was so nice and perfect for 3 guests. Mark was very friendly and accommodating - giving us suggestions on cool places to visit and great restaurants to go to. Asheville is such a great town. Will definitely be back!
