Fifteen minutes from downtown Asheville, the Nest is a unique and cozy guesthouse. If you want a taste of the Appalachian lifestyle, we want to share what we love about the mountain life. Private, wooded, outdoor fire pit and handmade details.

The space
The Nest is about 300 square feet, with a fully equipped kitchen (including a range/oven, small fridge, and all the necessaries). There is a front porch, perfect for whittling or drinking a beer. Throughout the house are handmade pieces of furniture and decor, created from locally salvaged oak, or wood we milled ourselves. There is a bathroom with a shower, a living room with a tall vaulted ceiling, and a loft with an organic memory foam queen mattress.

It sits on a half acre of wooded land, with a small meadow perfect for relaxing in the lounge chairs, or having friends over at the fire pit. It is about 200 feet downhill from the main house. Entirely surrounded by trees, it is very private most seasons, but visible once the leaves have fallen. Bonus: there is an outdoor shower on the back porch!

Other things to note
Important - Please save the directions we provide, as GPS often gets confused on our road. GPS is good until the last half mile or so, where it seems to get turned around.

The Nest is east of town, 15 minutes from downtown Asheville. The very cool town of Black Mountain is 10 minutes away further east. The Blue Ridge Parkway and the Folk Art Center are also 10 minute drive. Warren Wilson College is 5 minutes away, as is the beautiful Lake Eden.

In the nearby neighborhood, there is an amazing local restaurant/bar - Native Kitchen, as well as a major grocery store, coffee shop and burrito spot (all within 2 miles).

My wife Kristen and I had some amazing experiences staying at people's guesthouses around the world, and are so excited to have the opportunity to be hosts ourselves.

During your stay
We're happy to provide any information or assistance during your stay. In general, we may not see a lot of each other (the driveways are separate and the houses are separated by a span of woods), but we are always available for any questions.
