"Cathy is amazing! Really! What a host and is super supportive and making sure your stay is a true Asheville experience. I loved the room, the kitchen, the eggs and all of Cathy's help. Next time I come through town again I am sure to look Cathy's place up and see if its available. Oh, and its quiet! Love that when your on the road sometimes constantly. Thanks Cathy!" Stephen, California
There are THREE completely PRIVATE guest apartments in the a turn-of-the-century historic home. The back yard easily accommodates large gatherings for family dinners and lawn games or private late afternoon lounging.
"I was visiting Asheville for the time so I wanted a place that was close to downtown - my first night in, we even walked to dinner! Cathy's apartment was spacious, well lit, well appointed, and in a great neighborhood. Even though I only saw Cathy once, she was constantly making sure I had everything I needed. Parking was easy and secure (right next to the chickens) Easily a host that I will look to again in the future as I think I've only scraped the top of what Asheville has to offer!" Joe, NYC

Enjoy the LOVELY BACKYARD GARDENS and be entertained by my CHICKENS. I am happy to dispel any misconceptions you might have about roosters waking you up at 4 a.m. Roosters are not allowed in the city! My girls' coop is located in far away enough from the house that the only sound you might hear when the windows are open is their enthusiastic announcement of an egg for a morning omelet!
On site ECO-CONSIDERATIONS: organically raised chickens with no roosters, rain barrels for water catchment, organic vegetable gardens, composting, and vermiculture (worms eat my garbage and provide me with their nutrient rich castings).
"What a great first experience with AirBnB! Cathy was so helpful and available for anything we needed. She always responded within minutes of receiving a text from us. She guided us to great restaurants and sites to visit. The apartment was adorable and so clean and well equipped. We loved the old claw foot bathtub! The bed was so comfortable with very high quality soft sheets and an assortment of pillows to choose from. The location is the best! Close to Downtown, River Arts District, and easy to get to everything. The chickens are great! The backyard is so nice with lounge chairs and places to gather. Although it was just the two of us, the apartment would have easily fit 3 people. The 3 apartments together would be great for a group of people. All of the apartments are lovely! Cathy showed them all to me before we left. I just can't say enough positives about this experience. A Quiet, restful retreat. We feel like we went away with a new found friend in Cathy and can't wait to go back" ~ Sandy
Perhaps you'll stop in one of our two neighborhood pubs, Tod's Tasties Cafe and Nine Mile Cafe, which is just TWO BLOCKS from the apartment.
In the other direction, north, you'll find the Asheville Botanical Garden an EASY WALK. Each species of native vegetation is marked for easy identification. Enjoy the quaint gift shop. Adjacent to the Botanical Gardens is University of North Carolina's Asheville campus, often voted one of the best and most affordable small liberal arts college.
ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE named Asheville's premiere music club, The Orange Peel, Number 5 on it's list of Top Music venues in the country.

Come see for yourself why Asheville has been called "The Paris of the South".
"We had a delightful stay with Cathy and the "girls" this past weekend. The apartment is so peaceful, quiet and relaxing, we found ourselves just laying in bed in the morning listening to the light breezes and birds chirping. Cathy is a wonderful host and made us feel right at home and provided several nice recommendations on things to see and do. The apartment is clean and as described on the website. Her house is about 1 mile from downtown so it's an easy walk and enjoyable as you walk past some beautiful homes in the Montford historic district. We would definitely stay here again should we return to Asheville! ~ Mark

What a great place. This was by first airbnb experience and I was so happy with the apartment. It was perfect--location, degree of privacy, cost, simple furnishings, good lightening and overall comfort. The host, Cathy, was ill, but made sure we had everything we needed and was available via text to answer any questions.
The house is located in a quiet neighborhood next to a park that has a 1/2 basketball court and tennis courts. Just down the road and within easy walking distance on Montford Avenue is the 9 Mile restaurant. Just a short walk beyond that is downtown Asheville for lots of fun shopping and more good food.
cathy is a wonderful host, and an even better person. we couldn't have been more happy with the experience, and we will certainly be staying with her again.
We recently stayed in the #2 apartment of Cathy's home during our first trip to Asheville. Everything was lovely, and while we were out exploring for the majority of the weekend, we knew Cathy was a text away.
Hoping to visit Asheville again in the near future - and would absolutely stay here again!
Our Christmas stay in Cathy's lovely apartment couldn't have been better. The apartment is comfortable as well as very appealing: nicely decorated and maintained, and comfortably heated despite the cold outside. our family Christmas morning, with breakfast in the sweet kitchen and presents and stockings in the comfy living room (complete with a decorated tree, compliments of Cathy!) was a delight. Cathy was helpful and accommodating, and her procedures for checking in and out made the process very straightforward. We'll definitely hope to stay with her again!
Though we did not meet her, Cathy was very attentive to our needs & comfort by daily email check-in. We did not need anything not already provided but appreciated the connection. The apartment was lovely, amazingly situated in Asheville & nicely outfitted. The thoughtful touch of fresh eggs was a much appreciated plus. We would love to return another time.
The space is beautiful, cozy but spacious (at least compared to a hotel room). Very clean, well equipped, and close to downtown. Cathy was a perfect host - helpful and attentive, but not overbearing. We had the best weekend!
We had a wonderfully quiet stay in Apt#2! While we didn't meet Cathy personally, she was immediately responsive to text messages and solved a minor problem immediately. The bed was comfortable and the little kitchen had everything we needed to cook breakfast. We would definitely stay again. Thanks, Cathy!
We had such an amazing time staying with Cathy. The house was very quiet, clean, well-stocked, and no detail missed. Cathy was so accommodating with check in and check out, delicious fresh eggs (from "The Girls"), incredible response time with questions, and all while having the feeling of privacy. The location was conveniently located. Even though it's not right in town, it's still within walking distance to some great restaurants and not a long drive to get into town. The cab service was very speedy to get to the apartment too. I would certainly recommend her home.
Wonderful location, very spacious/clean/comfortable space (I wish I could take the bed home with me!), and a great attentive host when we had questions. I'd definitely recommend.
The apartment was very comfortable and clean and also in a wonderful neighborhood. Cathy was a great hostess. It was an easy and enjoyable walk to town. I would definitely recommend!
