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.
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 mountain lions & 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, 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?"
Since we are an Organic Household, we are happy to offer complimentary Organic Fair Trade Coffee in the form of a Latte, Espresso or Americano with optional decaf, cream and local honey upon request. We also serve complimentary continental breakfast with daily fresh baked croissants between 8-9am to accommodate any diet, with your coffee or herb tea.
Our kitchen and washer/drier are all readily available to you.
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
CHECK-IN is between 3pm and 10pm ONLY in respect of other guests.
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
There are 4 rental units on this 2/3 acre property - we do our best to contribute to the Airbnb philosophy and community by providing complimentary breakfast at a large table to enable our guests to meet each other. 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 the 2.2 miles into Downtown. Every direction has beautiful views!
