We arrived into Asheville and were able to check in early after messaging John about the room. We were greeted and felt very welcomed right from the start. The home we stayed in is within walking distance of great bars and restaurants in Downtown Asheville The room we stayed in was very comfortable and everyone we met while staying here were beyond friendly. I'd recommend this Inn to anyone visiting Asheville.
Great location, John met us on the front porch; room was clean and just as described. Thanks!
Great location, right opposite a very good bar and very close to downtown. Amenities fairly basic but I felt I got value for money; the room was clean. john was very friendly and made us feel most welcome. I would highly recommend to anyone visiting Asheville looking to experience the town on a bit of a budget.
We had a great stay here! You can't beat the location as its right in the heart of downtown. The staff and guests in the house were friendly and John Tripp was very helpful. He gave us some great recommendations on hiking and checked up on us daily to make sure we were enjoying our stay. I recommend it to anyone staying in Asheville!
We had a great stay near all the breweries we were hoping to visit. Despite the house hosting many tenants, we had plenty of privacy and the shared bathrooms/showers were lovely! Can't think of a better location to stay in downtown Asheville!

About the Host, John
I love to dance, hike, and meet people. I'm a green builder and real estate person, so I like helping with housing and visions for how we can get along better.
