Interaction with Guests
I prefer to be home and available to greet guests upon their arrival, but when this is not possible I will leave a key for you. Guests are free to come and go on their own schedule. I am happy to answer questions and always enjoy getting the chance to chat with visitors when this arises naturally.
Stroll into downtown Asheville on a Friday evening in summer and enjoy the drum circle at Pritchard Park for a bit, before making your way to one of downtown's many locally owned restaurants, bars, or breweries for dinner. Spend Saturday driving the Blue Ridge Parkway, hiking in the Smokies or Blue Ridge Mountains, zip-lining through tree canopy, or take a leisurely float down the French Broad River. Take a brewery tour, explore the Biltmore Estate, browse downtown's shops and galleries, catch a yoga class, get a massage .... The Fellow Traveler is convenient to it all.
A 10 minute walk into downtown Asheville (less than 1 mile to the center of downtown) and just up the hill from the River Arts District, this charming 1905 Victorian home is the perfect spot for your Asheville adventure.
You will be able to walk to anywhere in downtown or the River Arts District with ease. The breweries of The South Slope are also close by and an easy walk.
You are welcome to bring bikes or they can be rented locally. There is a bus that stops a couple of doors down.
Uber is alive and well in Asheville.
Cabs are available at the airport, about a 25 minute drive. I am also sometimes able to make pick-ups from the airport for a fee (less than a cab).

Jennifer's house is perfectly located, close to everything. Unfortunately we haven't had a chance to meet her, but she communicated everything we needed to know before our arrival. The house is tastefully decorated - we enjoyed the vintage furniture and accessories. The neighborhood gets a little sketchy in the evening in my opinion, but otherwise a good value overall.
My husband and I visited Asheville for a quick stay. We enjoyed being able to walk to the downtown area and everywhere we went was easy to get to from the fellow traveler. The room was cozy and had some small nice touches. We would stay again.
Lovely, quiet house in a convenient location! We had a wonderful visit to Asheville. Thanks!
The house was inviting and as described. Jennifer-Land welcomed us at the door, brought water to our room and provided coffee in the morning. The house is in a great location, easy walk to nearby breweries and downtown. Porch and some of the rest of the house was a little cluttered.
Beautiful house, outstanding location, and a very welcoming host! We were able to easily walk to town. When we're back in Asheville, we'll stay here again.

About the Host, Jennifer-Land
I moved to Asheville in 2014 and am exploring this awesome place just like you! I came from Durham, NC, where I've totally enjoyed being an airbnb host for the past 2 years. I have a background in theatre and radio, and currently enjoy traveling, visiting with friends, hanging out at home, gardening, and working as little as possible. Come visit me and my 2 cats at the Fellow Traveler--a charming, laid back, turn-of the-century home--easy walking distance from downtown Asheville and the River Arts District.
