Nice people, treated me well. Liked my space and felt comfortable. Havent watched that much TV in years, nice treat. Liked their cats and it was close to the fair and downtown. Liked the coffee and bagels too. Recommend them and their space.
Don was a fantastic host. He showed us around in his relaxing downstairs area of his home. My girlfriend and I appreciated his hospitality and welcoming us in his nice home. The place felt like a home away from home and beyond glad to have spend our two year anniversary in his place. The endless amounts of guides and pamphlets around the place surely were helpful for us for our brewery hopping tour during the day and night. We enjoy our small breakfast, netflix, and the book collection. All in all, thank you for a fantastic stay and highly recommend any local and/or traveler passing through Asheville to stay at Don's place. Thank you again guys :D
Loved the location and accommodations. Don and Louise were amazing. We had everything we needed and more.
Don and Louise were fantastic hosts. We really enjoyed our stay with them and the accommodations they provided for us. We will certainly think of them again when we need a place to stay in Asheville!
Fantastic and cozy stay in Asheville. The hospitality was fantastic and made us feel welcome our first time visiting this city. Will definitely use again when we come back!
Don and Louise made us feel very welcome. They had a nice little area set up with a coffee and tea pot, coffee, tea, etc. and a nice little fridge and toaster oven. They showed us how everything worked and even had little sticky reminders posted to help out. The bedroom was very roomy and comfortable. The bathroom was fine. We were even welcomed to use the rest of the living space in the basement. The neighborhood was very safe. We were glad to have off-street, private parking.
Don & his wife were very welcoming and accommodating to us. They responded quickly to our request (on Thanksgiving!) and accepted our reservation for the next day. The Airbnb space was spacious, well-equipped (with bottled water and beer in the fridge) and felt like a family home. It was very cozy with a sweet gas heater and space heater to regulate our own temperature. The home was also very convenient to downtown, with its own entrance and parking.
Delightful experience with 2 wonderful hosts that I kinda wished we made time to spend a bit of time with. Very ample space, very close to downtown and easy access to the blue ridge parkway.
Only negative was a very small bathroom. Just.. Don't plan on shaving in there.
We were greeted by an energetic host. given the brief tour and freedom to come and go. nice neighborhood. close to downtown Asheville. fantastic room and appointments. definitely worth future visits.
Everything was great.mmvery homey atmosphere. extremely comfortable!
Don was a great guest. I did not have a chance to chat with him during his stay I had to go out town. He was pleasant and clean.
It was great to meet Don and his wife. They are wonderful guests and I wish them the best!!
They were a great guest! Very kind and sociable. and very polite, tidy and kind. Followed all house rules and returned the room in excellent, clean condition
Don and Louise were such wonderful guests! They were friendly, easy going, clean, and very respectful of our home. It was truly a pleasure having the two of them stay with us! We highly recommend them to others.
Don, It's my fortune to get you as my guest. I was deeply impressed by your way of communication and your way of keeping room clean and perfect. I am really happy to have you as my guest. You are extremely welcome to any time.
Very nice couple here for a short stay. Everything went very smoothly and the space was left in excellent shape. Thank you very much for coming to stay! We were lucky to have you!
Super nice folks!
Pleasure to host
Don and Louise are so nice couple! They have great traveling experiences and lots of interesting stories. They used our place with respect. Communication for schedule was easy. Highly recommended guests :-)
Don and Louise were such fun to host again! These guys are a great asset to airbnb. Engagaing conversations, polite guests and a happy outlook make them not only great guests but great human beings as well. Host them if you get the chance!
personal note: Guys I am so sorry I missed you when you left. I felt really bad about that and I sure hope our paths cross again someday soon.
I've known Don and Louise for several years. I so admire their dedication to this wonderful community. I would expect Don and Louise would treat their airbnb guests as warmly and hospitably as they do when we're invited to their delightful home for an evening when they share they're home, food and southern hospitality (imported from Massachusetts in this case). I find that great guests make great renters, and the Bakers embody both. Whether you're looking to rent to, or from the Bakers you'll feel happy you did.
Don and Louise are great people - considerate and fun. I have stayed with them and they were very gracious hosts.
I have known Don and his wife Louise for about 10 years. They are mature and responsible adults who make wonderful contributions to their community. They are also warm and friendly people who organize and coordinate music events attended by several hundred people here in Asheville. I highly recommend them as either hosts or guests.
