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.

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.
Jennifer was a great host, very friendly. Room was comfortable. We walked to wherever we went downtown with ease. All in all it was a great stay!
Directions were clear and home was very clean. Jennifer left us to our own devices but made herself available for tips and friendly morning conversation! Delicious coffee and bedside water very thoughtfully provided. Thanks for a great visit!
Cozy, clean home in a great location. Short walk to downtown shops and restaurants. Jennifer-Land was very nice and helpful. Wish I could have stayed longer.

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.
