We invite you to stay at our 100 year old renovated, relaxed, cool house in downtown Asheville. We are in walking distance to the hub of downtown and offer you FREE parking in our driveway in front of the house. Cozy bed and private bath await you.
If you're coming to experience Asheville, why not stay downtown and experience true downtown living? We have one of the very few houses located right downtown. Honest....You can park your car in our driveway and walk to great restaurants, clubs and galleries in five minutes.
Our charming renovated 100 year old house is on a quiet side street but close to the heart of everything.
It's a treat to be able to go walking downtown. Shop, eat and
come back to the house....change clothes and head out again without having to drive back and forth to a hotel or try to find parking and pay for it. And.....It's just a whole different experience staying downtown period.
Your cheerful room is upstairs -has a very comfy queen bed with a cozy duvet and an attached private full bath. We just put a Plasma TV in your room....I doubt you'll have time to watch it but it's there just in case.
Clean and simple. Coffee and tea will be ready for you in the morning with some fresh fruit or perhaps a bagel if you wish.
Honestly, I would head to Tupelo Honey, Over Easy, or Sunny Point for breakfast.
We are a 10 minute drive to the Biltmore Estate and close to the Blue Ridge Pkwy for great hiking trips.
We have internet access and central heat and air conditioning.
If you are flying in to the Asheville airport, there is a bus that will take you to the station downtown. The station is one street over from our house so it is super easy to enjoy Asheville without renting a car.
Women....if you are traveling alone, this is a great option for you. You will have your privacy, but it's nice to know there are friendly people nearby to make you feel welcome and safe.
$137.00 per night. $147.00 for two people. Weekends are $10 more per night. I pay all the sales and use taxes out of that price. I prefer a two night booking but I'm flexible.
My husband and I are friendly, easy going people. Our little dog Frito lives here with us.
Come visit!- We will make you feel welcome and you'll love Asheville, there's so much to see and do!
FREE off street parking in our driveway for your stay downtown. Parking is limited, a hassle and can be expensive downtown so this definitely is a perk.
Interaction with Guests
I'm friendly and happy to chat if you are....if I sense you aren't interested that is ok too. I don't expect you to become a dear friend if you're just looking for a room downtown. I respect who you are and your comfort level when it comes to being social. I'm an extrovert and my husband is more an introvert so I understand both types of people. If you're a horrible grump you may want to stay somewhere else. I'm much too friendly for that!
We live on a special street. It's a short cut through so there isn't much traffic and most of the time you don't even realize you're downtown because it's quiet. Sometimes we hear music from the club down the street and sirens occasionally from the Fire Dept but for the most part it's a great spot. We are surrounded by law offices, a hostel and other converted houses turned into commercial properties.
The bus station is two blocks away if you want to go to other parts of Asheville and don't have a car. Otherwise....you can cover downtown by foot from our house easily. The Biltmore, GrovePark Inn, and Blue Ridge Parkway are 10 minutes away.

Amy and Ken were great hosts. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with them. The bed is super comfortable and the L-shaped room almost feels like a suite! It is truly a 5 minute walk to the great restaurants and other downtown happenings. Also close to the Greyline Trolley which let's you hop on and off at various locations while providing great commentary on the history of Asheville. I would definitely stay with Ken and Amy again.
Amy was a wonderful and welcoming host! Their home is truly the best location to experience Asheville. All of the places I wanted to go were withing walking distance. The room and private bathroom that I stayed in were incredibly clean and comfortable. I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in such a great city! I would definitely return and stay here again.
Amy was a kind and generous host. The room was quiet but amazingly close to downtown. We walked everywhere. She also helped us out a great deal when we were looking for walking/hiking/nature outings in the area.
Amy was an excellent host! The location of the house was unbeatable. We did not use our car once during the weekend; we walked to 9 breweries and many fun restaurants downtown. The private room and bathroom were great and definitely affordable. I would highly recommend staying at Amy's.
My stay in Asheville was perfect! Amy was very accommodating, and the room was clean, accommodating, and in a great location! Excellent stay, and I would highly recommend if you are looking to stay in Asheville for the weekend.
We had a wonderful stay at Amy and Ken's! The house is a short walk away from shops and restaurants and we never drove the car once we arrived. The room itself is warm and cozy, and I will dream about how comfortable the bed is for a good while. Highly recommend if you are visiting Asheville!
