My husband and I are architects and have designed this house as our home. We are traveling this year on a world tour with our two children so our house is available for your vacation. Our managers, Lisa and Michele will make sure you feel welcome and have everything you need.
All our personal things have been removed but you will find everything you need in terms of kitchen and bath supplies and of course, freshly made beds ready for your arrival.
The house was designed to take advantage of the trees and breeze in the summer months. We value home-making that lives with nature and doesn't tax our planets limited resources. There is no AC but there is good air flow and fans. This works well in the mountains.
If you are looking for an inspiring space that is peaceful and part of a vibrant creative community you will enjoy staying here.
This is a three story dwelling with the main house (this listing, sleeps 6) occupying two levels. We have a different listing for the separate studio apartment (sleeps 2) on the lower level and we can accommodate up to 8 people. You will need to reserve both listings for adult groups of 8. (Families with kids have the option of sleeping pads on the floor of the main house) The cost for both listings with 8 guests is $384/night weekdays and $494/night weekends.
Interaction with Guests
Lisa or Michele will be there to greet you when you arrive and answer any questions you may have but after that, you'll have the place to yourself unless you call for more assistance.
West Asheville is home. Its quiet and wooded, a real neighborhood scene with great restaurants and music venues. Many artists live on this side of the river as this is where the river arts district (RAD) is. West Asheville has it's own downtown area on Haywood Rd., a few blocks away. Downtown Asheville is five minutes away by car and is much more touristy.
You can walk to Haywood Rd, our "main st." Or ride the bikes provided but you'll want a car if you stay here, I think. Its a five minute drive anywhere, farmers market, Biltmore house, Downtown, also easy access to the Blue Ridge Parkway and Great Smokies National Park.
We are not charging an extra cleaning fee for groups of four People or less. We ask that you leave it in the same condition you found it. For larger groups or people with pets, there is a $150 cleaning fee due on arrival. Smaller groups may also choose to pay for cleaning instead of taking care of it before leaving. Just let Lisa know and she will make arrangements.
The main thing we'd like for you be considerate of is the walls, no tape or tacks on the walls. Also, please always wipe up spills off the floors when they occur. Standing water will ruin the finish.
This is a smoke free property. Please do not use pipes or tobacco and also, no burning things, like candles in the house. This keeps us all safe in the trees! If you need anything or have a request, please let us know. We truly want your stay to be a happy one and would appreciate the chance to have you leave us positive reviews.
Modern and minimalist - loved the space.
Really nice private feel even with other homes nearby. Did not see other neighbors.
Great location - so easy to get to W. Asheville and Downtown.
Could have used additional towel hooks in the bathrooms as we were a group of 6.
We had a great trip to Asheville and our stay at Modern Tree House was lovely. We were greeted by Michelle and our accommodations were as described (we were aware from reviews that one of the queen beds was in a loft, not in a private room). The house has great natural light and is in a very convenient location in West Asheville.
The Modern Treehouse made our visit to Asheville the best we've ever had there. Is it possible for the house to be more beautiful in person than the pictures? Yes! The light through the windows in the morning and the view of the trees was just what we needed on our vacation. I love art and I can appreciate that this home is a piece of art. We were inspired by all the little touches throughout the house. The soap dish, the tiny painting at the end of the dining table, the pillows on the folding chairs and even the sheets. The added bonus was when our children discovered the zip line in the back! The dishwasher is incredibly quiet and the fireplace heats up the whole house. Michele was communicative and very helpful and the added touch of fresh flowers everywhere made the house inviting. We felt as if we were in the country yet we were so close to town that it is the perfect location for Asheville. We are definitely staying here on our next visit and you should too!
The Tree House was exactly as we imagined from the pictures; modern design, lots of natural light in a wooded setting in a quiet and beautiful neighbourhood. Communication and access was well organised and easy. Our kids didn't want to leave!
We had a great time at the Modern Tree House. It looks just like the pictures and was close to everything we wanted to do while in Asheville. A special thanks to Michele for her assistance and recommendations!
We had a wonderful time in the tree house!! The huge glass window with the view of the gorgeous trees was incredible. We loved sitting in the main room and watching the sunset. Great space for a relaxing trip! Would love to come again!
Our Host made us feel incredibly welcome! The description was very accurate, when we arrived the home was very clean and cozy. I highly recommend this to anyone and would love to revisit!

Jakub and I have been together since 1999. We are both architects and we are both from Eastern Europe. We have two children, a boy and a girl. As a family we like hiking, mounting biking, travelling, creating art, reading and spending time with friends. We are planning a year of travel around the world November 2013- November 2014 and we are renting our house while away. We are very excited to share our home with others. We feel it is a special place and we hope you will enjoy it. What we most love about our home is its openness, the view of the trees, the quiet and the light.
