The Space

Comfortable cottage with hammock and swing strung from old-growth oak trees. Located only 1.25 miles from downtown Asheville and only three blocks from UNCA, the cottage is the perfect place to launch an exploration of all that Asheville has to offer.
The lofted ceiling gives this small space an airy, open quality. A memory foam mattress on the queen-size bed will coax you to a peaceful night's rest.
The bathroom has a glass enclosed, subway tile corner shower and tile floor. A suntube brings in exterior light even if the blinds are closed.
The modern kitchen is complete with Kashmir White granite counter top, induction range, microwave/convection oven, two stage water filter, dishwasher and under-counter refrigerator. A complete six place table setting means three meals for two before a trip to the dishwasher is needed.
A loveseat and chair grace the reading/living area. High speed wireless Internet is available in the cottage; you will stay connected.
The cottage is located one block off Merrimon Avenue and public transit. Walking paths on the Glenns Creek Greenway are one block away. And, the cottage is a short walk from the UNCA Botanical Gardens.
Like great food? You'll find Thai food, Italian food, burritos, sushi, barbecue, home-style, locally grown meals, ice cream, pastries and sandwiches all within 1/2 mile of the cottage.
You can stock up on groceries at the Whole Foods Market, Trader Joe's, Harris Teeter, The Fresh Market or Ingles Grocery, all within 1-1/4 miles. And, Saturday mornings during the growing season, the North Asheville Tailgate Market at UNCA offers fresh produce, meats and dairy products as well as breakfast crepes and fresh coffee prepared on the premises. Local musicians entertain as people gather and peruse the local offerings.
In spite of the convenience, the cottage feels like it is nestled in its own park. Charming, elegant, convenient... The Cottage In Asheville.

  • I cannot even begin to list the wonderful things about this wonderful, quaint, peaceful cottage!

    My boyfriend and I traveled to Asheville for a short two-day stay and were thrilled upon arriving to the cottage. After a long (but beautiful) drive through the mountains we were promptly greeted by Annie with a huge smile and hug. She quickly showed us the ins and outs of the sparkling interior and let us know how to reach her or Joe, if needed. They were extremely friendly and if we had stayed longer I would have enjoyed a glass of wine and chatting session. They seemed like truly wonderful souls.

    The cottage is decked out with modern appliances that are easy and efficient. The skylights bring a refreshing glow to the place and there are plenty of windows to view their gorgeous property. Privacy was never an issue and we came and went as we pleased.

    I look forward to visiting this lovely place again, hopefully sooner than later!

  • Oh my word, this place was simply wonderful in every way. The careful attention to detail - the fresh flowers, the wonderful linens and pillows, the high quality appliances, the freshly ground coffee...the hammock in the backyard...I could go on and on. Anne and Joe were extremely gracious and helpful hosts. I can't imagine a better getaway when visiting Asheville. This storybook cottage is a jewel.

  • Welcoming hosts and a wonderful little cottage - beautiful interior with real attention to detail. We loved the garden and hammock which was a quiet oasis after a long day of hiking. We loves Asheville and is we get at an opportunity to come back we would definitely stay with Annie and Joe again.

  • In my opinion, this is the perfect place to stay in Asheville. Joe and Annie are the best hosts a person could hope for, and the cottage is a dream. It has everything you could possibly need, all wrapped up in a neat little white package (with skylights!). They keep the place impeccably clean, and they even come mid week to change the sheets and take out the trash! This is way better than staying in a hotel. Not only do you have a full kitchen, but you have access to the most amazing landscaped yard. So, you are a 5 minute drive or 30 minute walk from downtown, but still feel like you are in a quiet, secluded place on vacation. I cannot say enough good things about my experience here.

  • We had a wonderful stay at the cottage this past weekend. The hosts, Annie and Joe, are absolutely delightful people. They welcome you to their gorgeous guest house with open arms and are available for anything you need from restaurant suggestions to local lore. The cottage is sparkling clean and beautifully designed. Every detail involving your comfort during your stay has been well thought out. I promise you…you won't want to leave :) This was our first Airbnb experience and Annie, Joe and the cottage made it a truly memorable one. We can't wait to go back!

  • Our experience with Joe and Annie was wonderful. They met us as we arrived and showed us around the cottage and gardens, explaining the lightening and dimmer switches, the induction stovetop and how the shower worked. Everything was carefully chosen right down to the fresh flowers in the bathroom and kitchen.
    They are the most gracious of hosts, spending time with us to share their experiences of the Asheville area, the shops and great eateries that abound only a short walk from the cottage. All in all a very restful and fun stay with Joe and Annie.
    We left feeling fast friends and we will be back.

  • My daughter and I truly enjoyed staying here. Joe and Annie were fabulous hosts. On my next trip to Asheville I will definitely stay here again. The accommodations were top notch and the porch and big yard and beautiful landscaping really topped it off

  • Our compliments!

    A first Air BnB experience and one that will be hard to beat. Their hospitality was warm and the accommodations thoughtfully designed and cared for with love. You can tell from the early correspondence that this wouldnt be a "rough camping trip". Our hosts were available for questions and quick to make suggestions of things to do. Warm hearts and great people ... they show what great hospitality looks like in Asheville.

    A must for our friends, and a repeat visit for sure! Bravo!

  • This cottage is so lovely and a perfect getaway! We gave a getaway weekend to my parents to visit Asheville. Booking a weekend for someone else (especially parents who are particular!) can be nerve-wracking, but Joe and Annie were wonderful! They quickly answered any questions during the booking process.

    From the moment my parents arrived on the property, they felt welcomed, like they were visiting old friends! It was the perfect place...very clean and restful.

    The Cottage was relaxing and fun for my parents, Joe and Annie are amazing!! They gave great recommendations for activities and food and were so kind to talk to.

    Joe and Annie were so generous, kind and genuine.

    The location was perfect; actually, everything was perfect! I highly recommend their cottage.

  • We had a blast here in Asheville and their beautiful cottage made us feel at home. Annie and Joe are extremely nice and warm. The cottage is like a dream. It really is my mini dream home:) It was spotless clean, quiet, and secluded yet super close to downtown. Annie and Joe gave us really great recommendations for where to eat and hangout. We ate at the admiral, mayfels, and the yacht club( because it got late) haha but all of them were spectacular. We also enjoyed hi-wire brewery and the biltmore. They were both amazing! Again it (email hidden) to stay and we will absolutely be back!

I am a singer/songwriter, voice talent, and amateur gardener. I love the arts, eating yummy food with friends and family, and the outdoors (especially horseback riding at Hickory Nut Gap Farm or jumping into one of our beautiful mountain swimming holes!). I'm grateful for the opportunities I've had to travel abroad and learn about other cultures. I feel extremely fortunate to have been born and raised in such a wonderful community as Asheville. I love my hometown and all things about the Blue Ridge Mountains. My husband, Joe Ebel, is a Wisconsin native and has lived here in Asheville for 14 years. He is an an amazing musician, website developer, chef, handyman and just a great guy and fantastic husband! We manage several properties, all next door to us. We love the green space that surrounds us, the peacefulness of our setting, and the proximity to the downtown Asheville scene. Joe and I met through music. We both write and perform. Between the two of us, we have five CDs of original, acoustic music. If you've seen the Ken Burns National Parks Series TV show on PBS, you've probably heard Joe's violin playing! He also pays mandolin and acoustic and electric guitar. Joe and I created a mission statement years ago, and it still holds: 'Create and sustain harmony and balance in ourselves and the world, through loving relationships, artful music, comfortable, peaceful environments and integrity of mind and body.'
