Description

The Space

Handsome brick ranch in beautiful neighborhood 5 miles S of Asheville Center, 2 miles to Blue Ridge Parkway and I-26. Only local traffic in neighborhood, good for walking. Front door in city, back door in country. Futons for extra people available, upon request.

A gay friendly home.

Breakfast food provided -- fresh fruit and Cereal or you may cook bacon and eggs; good bread and jam.

Local printed guides and maps available.

Local shopping center has many interesting stores, including an "Earth Fare," which I think is better than "Whole Food" and not as expensive. Many good restaurants in neighborhood: Italian, Indian, Chinese, Mexican, and Contemporary Southern.

Front yard in town; back yard in country. Often a bitt cluttered because I do not put any yard waste on street. Leaves and and garden waste is composted; stems and prunings are saved for kindling in our fireplace. Work in the yard for me is meditation and I go into Alpha state.

Guest Access

There is a long multi-purpose room with a den for tv, a dinette table, and a kitchen. Guests have access to the kitchen for breakfast. There is plenty of space in the house and on the outside deck for quiet enjoyment.

Interaction with Guests

Your host James will be available to greet and orient you to the space, the neighborhood, the city, and the region. Unless requested there will be only incidental contact.

The Neighborhood

This a quiet neighborhood. There are no sidewalks, but the streets are safe for walking and auto traffic is respectful of walkers. There is a city park nearby which also offers walking areas, and the State Arboretum is nearby.

Getting Around

Like most of America, public transportation is minimal. A public bus runs about once an hour between downtown, about 5 miles north, and the Airport, which is three miles south.

Other Things to Note

This is a large house in a quiet, low-density neighborhood. There are two guest rooms on the main level and a seperate groundlevel apartment below. For large family gatherings, we can accomodate up to 10 people with advanced planning.
