With one queen bed this is a perfect get-away for 2. If you have an extra friend or family member there is a queen size futon in the same shared space. It's quite large and comfortable, with private bathroom & shower, washer and dryer.
Our mid-century-modern home is located in the quiet neighborhood of North Asheville, just 2.5 miles from downtown Asheville, and less than a mile from the Asheville Pizza and Brew, one of our oldest craft breweries. Enjoy a movie while having the best pizza in A'ville, and great draft beer! Or for a step up from pizza, there's dining at Ave. M with outdoor seating and a great brunch. Or head another 1.5 miles south to our eclectic downtown with shops, entertainment, and the best restaurant and bar selection rivaling any city in the country. All just 5 minutes from our home! Biltmore Estate, a popular destination, is an easy 5 more miles south.
And, of course, more breweries than we can count.
Your full-sun basement apartment is a spacious 600 sq. ft. large and made for lounging and comfort. Enjoy the living room area in front of the fireplace or TV, or the dining table in front of the bay windows. Our wi-fi is available for your internet access.

The refrigerator and washer/dryer are right past the bathroom. We're only a mile from the grocery store to stock up on snacks and easy meals.
There is a TV with a Roku TV for streaming and wifi for your computer.
Park in the driveway and head around the back yard to your private entrance, french doors. Just go across the path at the deck.
Interaction with guests
We are also Air BnB travelers and appreciate the advantage of asking hosts the inside scoop of their town. Ask us where to go eat, hike, bike, or shop and we're happy to offer suggestions because we love our town!
North Asheville is an easy drive to so many places. 10 minutes north of the Biltmore, were a straight drive there, no need to get on the interstate. We're 1 mile from the Grove Park Inn, another favorite spot to visit, built around the same time as the Biltmore. An interesting and fun place to visit, built from boulders, in the side of a mountain with views, restaurants and shops, plus it's free to visit.
We're 2.5 miles off of 240 the main hub around Asheville. It's only a $7 Uber ride from downtown if you want to park here and leave your vehicle behind. We also live on the infamous Elk Mountain Scenic Highway ride that goes straight up to the Blueridge Parkway (5 miles up) and around to Town Mountain Road, which comes back to Downtown. Just ask us for directions. This is a beautiful and scenic ride by car or bike. The bus is a little less than a mile from us and goes downtown and other areas.
Other things to note
We have a washer and dryer downstairs in a separate area from your apartment. But there might be a time I'd like to ask you if I can do a load of laundry. If you're not comfortable with that, it's perfectly fine. Communication is key!
