The tiny house was so cute and clean. There were plenty of towels and extra bedding if needed. The location was great for us as we wanted to do lots of hiking and sightseeing in the mountains. Also not to long of a drive to get to downtown Asheville.

This was myself and my husbands first time staying in a tiny home and we LOVED IT! The home itself was beautiful as well as the cozy community it was in. The touches the host put into our stay were great from leaving local beers in the fridge to having access to a community fire…

We had a great stay in this cute tiny home community. The house was perfectly furnished with everything you need and has amazing views of the mountains. We also met some great people at the fire pit at night. We will definitely be back!
