The space

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. Optional and memorable Cardinals Inn breakfast is served Saturday & Sunday morning for which there is an additional charge.
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 ozonated 6 person hot-tub is open to Sunrise & Sunset Suite 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 Suite 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

Great location. Great Airbnb hosts who are passionate about sharing their space. You feel you are in the country and yet conveniently minutes from downtown. Fay and Marc are friendly and gracious and are people persons! They have created a cozy space to unwind in lovely Asheville. They also enjoy sharing fresh baked goodies and chocolate creations as well! Come for a respite and make friends for a lifetime. Nice bathroom amenities provided in case you forgot anything at home.

5 stars! Marc and Fay's place is absolutely beautiful. While located only a couple miles from downtown Asheville, the house is situated on a quiet, scenic road in an area that makes you feel like you're staying in a private bungalow in the breathtaking mountains of Western NC. Marc and Fay were gracious hosts that made us feel very prepared leading up to the trip, offered more amenities than I would ever expect even in a 5star resort, and were available the entire time for questions, suggestions, etc. We loved their homemade truffles and breakfast! We're very happy with our decision to stay here and would ABSOLUTELY return!

Everything good about Fay and Marc you have read in the reviews is 100% accurate. Amazing hosts and an amazing house. Marc let us try several of his homemade Kombuchas while we sat at the kitchen bar and conversed. The location is perfect. We saw a mother bear with her 4 cubs taking a snack break by the pear tree! The uber ride was about 6-7$ to get downtown Asheville. Stay here you won't regret it.

Marc & Fay User ProfileMarc & Fay is a superhost.

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 spectacular Chunn’s Cove and Utopia residences, 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 ensures trilinguality. 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 online decade in the office. Now the time is ripe to spread those four Sagittarian wings for this highly motivated couple are restlessly eager to explore exciting new ventures.
