~A recent review claims "most" our outlets don't work, which is an outright-let lie - they all work except in 1 bedroom where a working powerstrip is available by the bedside table. This person also complained about everything we have fully disclosed in our detailed listing and in pictures. We designed our listing to scare away people just like that. We specifically say in capitol letters many times; "DO NOT BOOK" in our description, to people who don't love what we offer. Like, if you have incense allergies, DO NOT BOOK a place that shows LIT INCENSE in the pictures! If you don't like rustic, don't book a listing that says rustic! Take a little time to review listings and pick a good fit. The guests the night before that capricious guy, loved our place so much they wanted to extend their stay, but had to leave because someone who didn't love our place and *should have booked a different place*, came to replace them. Read the whole listing, look at ALL the pics - and DO NOT BOOK if you're not IN LOVE. Please book somewhere else that you DO love, and leave our space for guests who will love it so everyone can be happy. Thank you.
-Another guest complained that we have too much art - as the title states - this is our ART STUDIO! LOL! DO NOT BOOK if you don't love lots of art! OMG! HAHAHA (dying laughing).

Peaceful Sanctuary - Not a party house.

Located near Spivey Mountain in West Asheville, rural feeling but barely 10 minutes/5 miles from downtown & 2 miles from West Asheville's downtown. Private and peaceful. Certified Wildlife Habitat. Birds chirping and bunnies hopping. Decorated with unique original art, antiques, instruments, plants, nature...
Not downtown! In hillbilly land! Will pass ramshackle cacophony of hillbilly dwellings.(URL HIDDEN)-Bedroom has door to outside, full bed, clean 100% cotton sheets, fluffy pillows, robes, slippers, TV (vintage, not flat screen) & DVD's (no cable), books, mints & more. (Main bedroom currently has curtain door, 2nd bedroom has door with lock).

2nd bedroom is music studio that can be transformed into an additional private bedroom -just make the reservation for at least 4 to open 2nd bedroom.

*Vegetarian* kitchen has table, mini fridge, sink, hotplate, pots & pans, dishes, coffee maker, toaster oven (no microwave!).
(As life long veggies, we are serious about keeping the property vegetarian! Thank you! (vegan is even better, but definitely at least vegetarian!) (we provide simple vegan breakfast items).
文 ஜ 文 ஜ
Living room has seating, sunlight, chess board, paper with markers & colored pencils, radio/CD player, TV (vintage!) with DVD & VCR players (no cable).

Bathroom has clean towels, basic toiletries, extra toiletries and stocked medicine cabinet.

Plenty of fans and open windows but no AC, we love the natural mountain air.
Electric heat in winter, electric fireplace in bedroom.

Enjoy a campfire outside, a large natural yard, a rope swing on one of our big trees, bird & bunny watching.

There's ok reception for your phone, though we haven't got internet extended back there yet. No wi-fi!

No pets. Pet and allergy free. Please brush pet hair off clothing before entering.

We use Seventh Generation disinfectant for most the house and bleach for the bathroom.

Late night check-in's a-ok! Just let us know.

PLEASE NOTE: The unit is a rustic, country DYI work in progress. It is set far back from the road with aprox a 400 foot unpaved driveway. This is not a high rise in the city, not the Ritz, - it's a humble DYI unit in progress in the woods; and we are some of the people who "keep Asheville weird" :-)
There might be a few harmless "cellar spiders" even though we diligently remove them (they are actually harmless to humans & beneficial as they prey on dangerous spiders). Some tiny ants found their way inside recently and they will come out in a marching line to clean up any food or mess left out -nature's cleaners! We are enjoying co-existing with them rather than eradicating them, they don't bother us. Please DO NOT book if ants coming for left out food bothers you. (Food is safe in fridge). DO NOT book if you have a problem with nature - as a Certified Wildlife Habitat, we are co-existing here! The dishes don't all match, we haven't finished the floor board trim, etc -but we do sweep, mop, dust, scrub, disinfect all switches, doorknobs, handles, wash all bedding & towels, provide cleaned, sanitized trash cans in every room - we work VERY hard to make it as nice as possible. But if you are looking for something sterile or upscale fancy, and would mark us less than 5 stars for *what it is*, please book a much more expensive place!
*DO NOT book if you do not find the "value" to be amazing, as we offer a very private, entire place & yard for less than what many hotels & shared places go for, we do not charge a cleaning fee or have a 2-3 night minimum, priced far below Airbnb's price suggestion and provide SO many extra perks & unique atmosphere - only book if you love this kind of value. This is not a motel.
*DO NOT book if you have a problem with "trailers", although our place does not have wheels and axles to constitute as a "trailer", some people would call it that, people who should not book with us. LOOK AT ALL PICS.
Please check location on map and do not book if location is not 5 star worthy to you! We only want guests who are thrilled with the private, country like location. Be advised there are curves on the roads, like everywhere in Asheville - we are IN the mountains! DO NOT book if you have a problem with curves in roads or driveways. And please DO NOT book if your car head lights are not enough to light the driveway for you - we avoid too much artificial outdoor lights as we prefer star gazing and are fostering fire flies that are rapidly disappearing due to too much outdoor lighting, so we love our unlit driveway

Bedroom, living room, kitchen, bathroom, 2 porches, peaceful yard. (Sewing room, art room, storage, etc not included).

2nd bedroom with futon bed prepared & opened for booking of 4 or more. (If less than party of 4, but want 2nd bedroom, make reservation for 4 to add extra room).

Check-in time is by appointment, as early as 5pm. Please let us know what time you'd like your check in so we can plan our our day accordingly.

Someone will be available to greet you along with all the bunnies.
We live in a separate house and the guesthouse is in our art/sewing studio behind us, very private. We'll be neighbors! :)

While you'll have privacy, it is our personal, private space furnished with personal things, so please be respectful of that.
We probably won't, but MIGHT have to use our work spaces (will warn you)(located in separate private rooms in the house) or might need to come in and grab something, but will try to give guests all the privacy they need.
Most likely, after we check you in, you probably won't see us again unless you need us.

You can reach us via phone anytime for anything and if we're not around, maybe one of our teenage sons can help you with anything you need.
We've lived here for 12 years and are glad to answer any questions & give any advice about the area - check the guidebook for some of our fav places :(URL HIDDEN)
The neighborhood is hillbilly residential, peaceful and easy going. There are neighbors but not much interaction with neighbors as property is fenced in and private and surrounded in trees.
