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 groups of 8. 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.
Had a great weekend. Everything was as advertised. The cabin is very conveniently located to everything in Asheville. And the neighborhood was very nice. We would highly recommend it to anyone.
We loved the house and those radiant floors were amazing! We'll be back again.
We loved Maria + Jakub's treehouse in Asheville. We arrived as a group of photographers looking to get away for a few days, and we were incredibly inspired by the design + beautiful light in the house. Everything was as described.
This place was perfect. We wanted a nice getaway for a short leadership retreat for our company (three of us went.) It was quiet and pretty much exactly what you see in the photos. I've been to downtown Asheville plenty but had never been to West Asheville. That was just a super quick drive away and had great breakfast/coffee spots so we ended up spending a lot of our meal time there. Michele was super helpful when we arrived and everything in the house worked perfectly. We loved sitting around the fire stove at night. I can't recommend this place enough.
The Tree House met my expectations of a perfect location for our creative team's brainstorming retreat.would love to come back in warm weather to enjoy the 2nd floor balcony for an evening of relaxation. Thank you for being great hosts!
Our experience at the Tree House was really homey & relaxing. In our arrival, Lisa made us feel right at home. We'll absolutely recommend this place to our friends & family, and future guest. We would love to return some time soon in the near future. Thank you for having us and all the best.
This house was so amazing--so cozy and in a great location within a West Asheville neighborhood. Lisa the property manager was very helpful with check-in and great at making us feel welcome. Good for families with kids or couples traveling alone...plenty of space for a group like ours to spread out or cozy enough not to feel too big for a couple. Great property, great experience.

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.
