Just a 5 minute Uber or a 2 mile saunter from Downtown, our luxurious stone & stucco home on a Private Road with an extra-wide driveway to accommodate up to 10 cars, was totally renovated throughout 2013/14.
Our spacious stone & stucco house is on a quiet Private Road and boasts extravagant 7.5PH well-water from your indoor shower to our out-door ‘mineral-spa’ overlooking nothing but woods of trees and a mountainous skyline. The spacious shared ozonated hot-tub seats 6 and is open to Cardinals Inn guests throughout the year while his and her seasonal bath-robes are provided.
A luxurious queen size sleigh bed will ensure restful sleep while your en suite Private Sunset Room is fitted with a flat-screen cable TV to catch-up on the ‘other’ world, with access to U-verse on HDMI 1 and Netflix & Amazon on HDMI 2 via Roku2.
Located on the south/southwest corner of the house with exceptional views of local wildlife not limited to bobcats, wild turkeys & black bears, sun streams in your bedroom windows throughout the day. The mirrored-door double closet is fitted with shelves and drawers, suitcase racks and sufficient coat-hangers to accommodate an over-sized suitcase. Your extravagant bathroom is fully tiled with textured pebble flooring and fitted with a bi-flush toilet, laundry hamper for used hot-tub towels, his & hers seasonal bath robes a shower with shampoo, conditioner and shower-gel and a hair-drier for your convenience.
WiFi is available throughout our hardwood floor home while the house door and your bedroom door are both fitted with a digital lock.
On cold winter nights, why not snuggle in front of the wood-burning stove with a hot-chocolate after a soak in the ozonated hot-tub? And on balmy North Carolina summer nights, simply stretch out below one of our huge living-room ceiling fans when it’s not quite hot enough to turn on the AC, or on the patio with a good book, and ask yourself “how could I possibly be only 5 minutes from Downtown Asheville, the Biltmore Estate and Mission Hospital?”
Our kitchen and washer/drier are all readily available to you upon request.
Even though we are only 2 miles from Pack Square, the heart of Asheville, we are essentially in a rural environment and ask that you are respectful of our wildlife and keep a safe distance in the interest of safety.
Kindly note that;
QUIET HOURS are between 11pm and 7am
Please be respectful of the privacy of our Airstream and Apartment guests who have their own patio areas since most guests come looking for R&R. You are most welcome to use the main house deck living room and deck with sun-chairs, cushioned chairs and tables with umbrellas and the BBQ or stroll through the seasonal raised beds.
Interaction with guests
If you need us, we're available 24 hours a day, you are welcome to call us any time if you have any problem at all and we will be more than happy to address it.
We're two Sagittarians - what can i say? We just love people!
Chunns Cove is a world unto itself. We have one neighbor whom you can barely visible through the trees, otherwise all you can see is a spectacular 270 degree view of the valley and woods from the house. The cove is human-quiet but bird-noisy! We regularly see creatures that you wouldn't expect and could easily mistake this place in summer for a Costa Rican rain-forest! Ingles, our local grocery store, is 2 minutes down the road and Walgreens is 5 minutes away.
Our favorite dinner restaurants are the Admiral in West Asheville and the Bull & Beggar in the River Arts District for which we recommend reservations but you might find a couple of seats around the bar to order a selection of fabulous plates. Lunch time we are partial to Chai Pani's Indian Street Food which i take with no spices and Doc Chey's is ideal on a tight budget but arrive early or be prepared to wait for a seat.
The airport shuttle will bring you to the door, there is a bus into town about half a mile away, you can rent bicycles or you can walk 2 miles to Downtown. Every direction has beautiful views!

Well-immersed in the pastry and chocolate world for several decades, there is nothing on Marc’s list of culinary delights that features higher than chocolate and coffee. Playing a considerable role in both gutting and rebuilding this spectacular Chunn’s Cove residence, over the last year, Marc has conclusively proved that watching informative and directional Home Improvement Shows for the best part of adulthood, is akin to learning a new language. Born in Quebec, Marc’s native tongue is French but his English rivals any native tongue and his Spanish makes him trilingual. Not without her artistic inheritance, Fay’s world is defined as a pleasurable balance between entrepreneur and artist, commencing with a decade of international business travel in her 20’s, evolving to a decade of motherhood punctuated by a successful decade in the office. Now the time is ripe to spread those four Sagittarian wings for this highly motivated couple, eager to explore exciting new ventures.
