The Space

Conveniently located only 3 miles from downtown Asheville, this chic, artsy bedroom can accommodate 1 or 2 visitors. Although you will need a car (or take the bus) to get to most places, everything is located within a short drive from the house, Comfortable twin size beds (with all the trimmings) await you. House is light, bright and sunny, especially your room with its south-facing windows. There are hardwood floors, a washer & dryer, cable TV, DVD player, and wireless internet. You have full access to the kitchen (and entire house) to cook your non-meat vegetarian meals. Nothing is fancy, but all of your basic needs will be met in a friendly, caring manner.

Greetings, my name is Rosemary, and I am a teacher of natural healing who believes that there are no “incurable” illnesses. I spent 11 years confined to a wheelchair. Doctors told me I would never walk or talk again. You can read about my remarkable recovery from Multiple Sclerosis, as I have written a few books on the subject. Eating raw foods was one of the things that helped me, and I can provide you with raw food and instructions at daily, weekly, or monthly rates.

Experience an in-town retreat eating delicious, organic, gourmet raw food meals freshly prepared by a raw food chef... ME! This includes lodging, all meals, and raw food preparation lessons. You can purchase a copy of my new book, "Raw Food Preparation, Recipes for Beginners."

This is a modest, basic laid-back private home, not a swanky fully-staffed spa. I instruct you a one-on-one basis. You learn by leisurely assisting me with our rawfood meal preparation when possible, and through casual instruction.

Did you notice the beautiful original artwork hanging on the walls? The art was created by my famous New York artist friend, Carole Antun, local to Asheville. You can order prints of her work, and I will ship them to your home if you like.

Asheville has much to offer, so it's no wonder that our president, other dignitaries and celebrities vacation. here often. This cozy home is located in the heart of it all. It takes less than ten minutes to drive downtown to hear (or join in with) drummers at the drumming circle. Less than five minutes drive to trendy Haywood Rd. with its great restaurants, bars, local beer breweries, theaters and music. Ten minutes to the River Arts District, where local artist will dazzle and seduce you with their creativity. The bus stops nearby, and you can walk 1 block to the park and swimming pool. This is a very old and safe neighborhood.

Did you know that Asheville is ranked the number 3 city in the WORLD for the happiness of the people living here? The top 2 cities are not in the U.S. We will smile at you, speak to you, help you, and even wait patiently if you dart out in front of us in traffic. We love it here, and so will you!

In Asheville, buying local is "in". In fact, we say "local is the new black." We are into permaculture, vermaculture, sustainability, simplicity, healthy living, creativity and self-expression. We work hard to "Keep Asheville Wierd."

Smoking must be done outdoors, but there is a shaded outdoor sitting area. Sorry, but no pets are allowed, (its a healing thing). The bathroom is shared, but on the bright side, there is plenty of well-lighted off-street parking. : )

Because I believe that music, dancing and having fun is a vital part of healing, I host a lively jam session here on every second Sunday of the month during nice weather. If your stay includes a second Sunday afternoon, you might be lucky enough to sample some of Asheville's greatest musicians. (And, boy, do they taste good!) You are invited to bring your instrument and join the fun, or just come listen. Maybe you will dance with me.

Although not overly noisy, this house is located within the city limits of Asheville. So, you may hear some occasional and typical noises of city life.

Add $50 to the room rate for a second person.

'Hope to see you soon!

Guest Access

Guest will have access to the entire house.

Interaction with Guests

I interact with my guests as much, or as little as they desire.

The Neighborhood

My neighborhood is great! It is safe, quiet and walkable. There is a park and swimming pool located 1-1/2 blocks away. Although I'm located on the bus line, there are many businesses, stores, cafes and shops within walking distance (including the largest Goodwill store most people have ever seen).

Getting Around

Yes, the bus stop is less than a block from my front door, and of course taxi-cabs are always a phone call away.
