The space
The best of both worlds! Quiet, secluded country cottage only six minutes from downtown Asheville. Sip your morning coffee on a private brick patio surrounded by large trees and singing birds. Enjoy easy access to West Asheville's restaurant scene.

We're very proud to report that we were the #1 Most Wish-Listed Airbnb in Asheville, NC in 2019! (See the article here: https://press.airbnb.com/en-us/airbnb-announces-1-wish-listed-listing-in-top-20-north-carolina-counties/) As Asheville is the largest Airbnb market in the state, this makes us the #1 Airbnb unit in North Carolina! We'd like to give a big thank you to all our amazing guests over the last five years and especially those who keep coming back year after year. You guys are the best. Please come visit us and start your own Asheville traditions!

This is the downstairs unit in a two-unit home. If you'd rather be upstairs then check out our other unit, Crescent Moon Cottage: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/1950593. There is no access between units, each has a separate entrance.

Please read the HOUSE RULES before booking. Most importantly, we only have parking for ONE CAR per unit, and only allow two people maximum per unit, no exceptions! (If you have an extra car you'll have to leave it in a parking garage downtown.)

This private apartment is the ground floor of our our cozy gated home at the end of one lane gravel road. We live in the little house in the backyard. In front of our house is the Crown Plaza golf course and mountain bike trail.

The apartment is fully furnished, including a fully equipped kitchen with a full fridge, microwave, four-burner stove & oven, a coffee maker, a toaster and a blender. It includes Wireless Internet, off street parking for one car, and complimentary coffee and tea. All linens and towels provided. We also provide shower gel, shampoo and hair conditioner so you don't have to pack these bulky items! And yes, there is a hair dryer, iron, and ironing board!

Electric heating with two separate thermostats keeps the apartment at an optimal comfortable temperature in winter. A window air conditioner unit is provided in the summer months.

The bathroom has a custom-tiled double shower with glass doors, underfloor heating (great for keeping your toes warm!) and plenty of storage for your toiletries.

The apartment is not suitable for children as it is not childproofed. The bed is a queen size.

We are surrounded by trees and wild spaces, which makes it perfect for the wildlife that live here. We have raccoons, opossums, red foxes, woodchucks, chipmunks, squirrels and the occasional coyote. Our bird-friendly yard is home to over 20 different species of birds including a resident pair of red-shouldered hawks and a screech owl family.

Our house is only 45 minutes away from the Cataloochee valley in the Smoky Mountains National Park. The valley is known for its elk and black bear population. The east side of the Smokies is great as it is less touristy than further west. It is a great place for a day trip!

Enjoy the benefits of living close to Downtown and recharge your batteries in our tranquil home.

Guest access
Guests have private use of the patio.

Other things to note
We live on a one-lane gravel road, and sometimes it gets bumpy.

This unit does not have a television. We value our guests peace and quiet!

Also, some mobile carriers don't have great coverage at our house. In my experience, Verizon works well and AT&T doesn't work very well.

This is a downstairs unit so you will be able to hear guests walking around upstairs.

During your stay
Whenever possible, we enjoy greeting our guests when they arrive and giving them a brief introduction to the apartment. We also do our best to see them off when they hit the road. Other than that, you may occasionally see us, but we are never more than a phone call or text away if you need us.
