This apartment is pretty accurate to what is listed. Lots of local tips, helpful handbook for the stay, and quick replies. The woods/mountain view was lovely. Kitchen was well appointed and everything was clean. Asheville is an easy drive, about 25 min to plenty of awesome restau…

I hesitated to write this review, as it is a beautiful mountain location and I'm aware most owners' incomes are impacted by less-than-complementary reviews. However, they often inform rental choices so I will note several portions of our experience: 1) Other reviewers have noted…

Response from Marjorie:
We are sorry that you were unhappy with your stay. I was a little hesitant to accept your reservation, when you asked prior to booking if we would waive the cleaning fee, while at the same time requesting accommodation for 3 adult women. None of the pictures in our listing suggest that the main living space has views to the outside. More expensive listings do have views but the circumstances of your booking suggest that economy was a priority for your group. We did have a Mr. Coffee which we took out of service because they are hard to keep clean and after awhile produce bad "office" coffee. We replaced it with a coffee pot, and filter because we feel that it is a better solution. We saw this set up in another Airbnb and we liked it personally, which is why we switched over. If you were having a problem with the air mattress, you should have let us know. We have another one. Regarding the crickets: this is a problem that we have for about two weeks out of the year when the weather changes. For readers' information, there are usually about 3 or 4 crickets in the space max at any given time. It is not an infestation by any means. We tolerate them because we feel that people come up to the mountains for a pristine experience and would rather put up a few crickets than be exposed chemicals. I offered to spray in order to address your complaint but really didn't want to because that might have been a negative for the next guest. This exactly what I said to you, which you considered to be defensive. Everybody has a different set of sensitivities. Again, we a sorry that you were unhappy. We always like our guests to have a good stay.

Lovely spot! The space is very roomy and comfortable. We liked the private porch in the woods. The roads are a bit steep in the area but we had no trouble in our little car getting around. The roads are in great shape and easy to navigate. The listing is very accurate and the hos…

Fantastic host & lodging. Very comfortable and in a fun/beautiful location. Definitely a great stay in the NC mountains, but still close enough to plenty of exciting spots in the greater Asheville location as well as downtown. Would recommend to anyone.

An Apartment in the Woods is the perfect place to escape to a mountain retreat. We enjoyed the peace, tranquility and wonderful mountain air. Our day trips took us to Mount Mitchell on the Blue Ridge Parkway, Black Mountain, Swannanoa and Ashville. There are ample restaurants to …

Margie and Todd were great hosts with good local hiking tips! They were very quick to respond and willing to help. Also, Larry (the dog) is a sweetheart. The apartment is perfectly located for both hiking and going to Asheville (~25 minutes). It’s also clean, well stocked (especi…
