Quiet country life just minutes from downtown Asheville, our contemporary studio has everything you need for a comfortable stay.
Contemporary studio apartment for rent, suitable for one person or a couple (one double bed). Living room with flat-screen TV (DVD player and Roku) and wireless internet provided, bedroom area with double bed (all linens provided), fully stocked kitchen, bathroom with shower. 7 miles or 10 minutes from downtown Asheville in east Asheville. 5 minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway and awesome hiking spots. We are situated in a 3-home private eco-community in the mountains right outside the city (Asheville). We have small dairy goats, vegetable gardens and live a quiet sustainable country life with Asheville's nightlife, restaurants, theaters, and fantastic hiking only a short 10 minute drive away. If this sounds like a place you would enjoy, please contact me after checking calendar for available dates. Studio apartment is very private with separate parking and private patio overlooking trees, goats pastures, and cow pastures.
We are in the country outside Asheville (but only 7 miles)-- buses don't run out here so it's important to have your own transportation.
We don't use cable TV anymore but have endless entertainment on Roku-- we have subscriptions for Netflix and HuluPlus for both movies and TV shows.
IMPORTANT: We have a lovely sweet labrador retriever, who is a rambunctious and super friendly 4 year old, and one cat who is dog friendly. If you are afraid of dogs or don't like them, you should probably consider something else.
Also, the goat area is fenced in with high voltage electric wire to keep predators out. Inside the goats pen, feel free to play with the goats! They are very friendly.
Interaction with Guests
You will have little, if any, interaction with your hosts here, unless you need us for anything. We like our guests to have quiet and privacy. However if you are interested in the goats or gardens, we're happy to show them off!
Smoking is not permitted, except outside.
Dogs are permitted on a case by case basis.
Please ask and describe your dog and I will consider it.
I have 1 dogs and 1 cat but I do not take cats with guests because of allergy issues with guests.
I very much enjoyed my stay in the woody glen of eastern Asheville, thanks to Julia's welcoming and friendly demeanor. Her goats are adorable and give the place a nice "out of the city" feel. The studio was very clean and exceeded my expectations. Thank you, Julia!
Julia's place is cute, clean, and comfortable. The studio apartment is separate from her living quarters, so we were able to have privacy throughout the weekend. Julia was very friendly, welcoming us and showing us around when we first got there, and speaking when we saw her from time to time. She was always available by phone or text if a problem arose, although it didn't. She has a friendly 85-pound lab and about 6 or seven dwarf goats that were fun to see and learn about. Julia was happy to answer any questions about her animals. We were 5-10 minutes from anywhere we wanted to go in downtown Asheville. The neighborhood is somewhat rural, with rolling hills and large lots, very peaceful. The view from the patio is beautiful. I wouldn't hesitate to return here.
Julia was great! We had a wonderful time staying at her place, which had everything we needed. She was very attentive and quick to respond. Highly recommend her place. The goats and super friendly dog were a plus!
Nice studio. Very cozy. Heating was great, comfortable bed, nice bathroom. Convent location. FYI: there is no cable TV. We didn't know that but ended up figuring alternative way to watch the Oscars. Wifi is great. Julia is very nice and the maps she left for is in the apartment were very useful. Milo the dog is very friendly and our dog got along with him very well. Kitchen is well equipped with everything you need plus some extra specials like teas,etc.
Julia was a perfect hostess!! When we arrived she warned us of the storm that was coming and had warmed the apartment nicely.
Julia was friendly and welcoming. The studio was clean and cute, with everything that we needed for a long weekend.
Julia made us feel welcome from the beginning by sending us an email with detailed directions and information. The apartment was perfect for us and was just as we expected from the Airbnb listing. The lovely pastoral view was made even better by the presence of Julia's goats. It was a treat to watch them and we loved being there when a pair of kids were born. She also shared some delicious, fresh goat's milk with us. It was a great experience all around!
I'm a sustainable organic gardener in Asheville NC. I live in a tiny eco-cottage above the studio apartment on one wooded acre. I have a small herd of Nigerian Dwarf dairy goats who provide milk, cheese, love, and lots of fun! My micro-farm keeps me busy and I love sharing this lovely place in the world with people who share the same interests.
