A beautiful one-hundred year old historic home in the Montford neighborhood. 3 blocks from the center of town, 5-15 minute walk to everything. Hot tub, high speed wi-fi, cable tv, mini-fridge, outdoor spaces for relaxation, gourmet kitchen.

This home is a quick 5 minute walk from the center of downtown. This historic neighborhood is peaceful, yet only a short walk to all the fun activities downtown. This is the calendar for the Green Room. Fantastic restaurants nearby, the Pritchard Park drum circle, the US Cellular Center, and St. Lawrence Basilica are only three blocks away. We are a 5 minute drive from UNCA.. You won't need to move your car once you are settled in, unless you decide to go to the Biltmore Estate and Biltmore Village, 10 minutes away. Easy access to the Blue Ridge parkway, NC Arboretum, Folk Art Center and much more!

This calendar reflects the reservations for the "Green Room". The Green room downstairs has a comfy queen size bed and shares the mauve bathroom right next to it. The Blue, room next to the Green Room, is available for instant book under "Victorian Cottage Montford Blueroom" and has one queen bed and a shares the mauve bathroom. A "roll-away" bed is available for one extra guest. All rooms have room air conditioners, mini-fridges, high speed wi-fi and cable tv, access to outdoor hot tub (bring bathing suits!), fire pit, gas and charcoal grills. You may use the kitchen to cook if you wish, but I will provide teas, coffee and fresh pastries from my D-I-L, Kasey's, bakery. There are some amazing places to eat within a 5-minute walk.

Now that we have received "SuperHost" status, we will do everything to keep that honor. I have a really easy-going manner and love to laugh and have fun! You will often be welcomed by Jeff, my right hand helper, as I am often at work. Lots of nice people moving through, but yet a very mellow place. You are free to come and go as you please and basically just feel at home. I will be happy to help you with whatever your needs are, and I have a supply of maps and brochures and suggestions to make the most of your visit. I do teach afternoon music lessons (flute/voice/ piano) Monday - Thursday.

I love the beautiful old historic homes in this Montford neighborhood. My house dates from circa 1910, termed a "Victorian cottage", and built by Richard Sharp Smith. Many of the homes in the neighborhood date from the 1880's. This Victorian neighborhood was the first suburb of Asheville. It is very quiet and friendly. Lots of beautiful walking opportunities around the neighborhood.

Jeff and I are happy to do shuttles to and from airport and around town if needed for a $15 fee. The city bus stops near the house, but the house is so conveniently located that you will hardly need the public transportation. Uber is also available.

Please park on the Elizabeth side. Also, the day of your arrival, a general ETA is appreciated!
I have two small short-haired kitties, Sebastian and Sasha, real sweet and mellow. They stay outside most of the time and are never allowed in guest rooms for those who might be slightly allergic. I have had several guests stay who are allergic to cats and have had no adverse reactions.
LGBTQ and straight-friendly.
Hair dryer, iron and ironing board available upon request. outdoor hot tub, outdoor screen room, patio with pergola, outdoor fire pit, gas and charcoal grills, flower, herb and outdoor spaces for your pleasure.
