Coming in just a moment....
We had a wonderful time. The home was a great retreat for our group with ample space and a great ambiance. We really enjoyed the wood stove, the kitchen, touring the grounds, and the lingering friendly kitty. The home was cozy and had everything we needed for our getaway. Ben was helpful and quick to respond to our every need, he even gave us a tour and walked us through the projects in the back of the property. I would absolutely return and reccomend the home to anyone looking for a great getaway for a group of friends or family visiting Asheville.
Ben was super accommodating given my late arrival and room switch. I appreciated my pup being welcome, too. Property has a cool vibe, and close to downtown shops. Thanks Janell & Ben!
My boyfriend and I stayed in the Asheville Sanctuary for a few nights in Dec 2013. The home itself is so completely comfortable. Beautifully decorated with a lot of love and care with lots of plants, natural light, and cozy couches to lounge in front of the fire place. Huge kitchen with all the fixins with space in the fridge in case you want to bring/make food at home. The room itself was great, very spacious with a lovely theme (we stayed in the Sky Room), with an extremely comfy bed and lots of blankets to cozy up and stay warm. As if this weren't enough, the home is a part of an intentional 'urban farm,' a small community of folks that take eco-conscious living to a new level. The way they incorporate aquaponics and sustainability into their living practices is inspirational to say the least. Ben was a phenomenal host, kind and accommodating in response to any request or question we had about our stay or Asheville in general. If we ever have the good fortune of coming through Asheville again, we would definitely plan for a repeat stay.
Great place to stay. excellent proximity to asheville downtown and awesome hospitality from Ben. very accommodating - we'll stay here again if we need a place to stay in asheville
Ben was very flexible and offer quick responses to all my messages. He even made me mint tea when my tummy wasn't feeling good after a bad dinner. I just wish I had more time to stay longer and to tour the grounds. Hoping to go back one day. Thanks Ben!
Thanks Ben - great stay!
My friend and I came to Asheville for a girl's trip and stayed in the Sage Room at Ben's place. Ben made it very easy for us to relax and enjoy our time there. We loved staying at Ben's place and would definitely stay there again!
great place, everything is beautifully done with care and consideration, bed was really comfortable, shower was awesome, lovely common areas, super nice people, highly recommend!
Very cool place! We enjoyed our stayed, it was like our own place away from home. The whole arrangement was chill. Can't beat the location either, we basically parked and walk everywhere it's so close in. We'll definitely stay again when we return!
Ben was incredibly gracious and patient, my brain being partially fried upon arrival from way too many hours on the road and one apparently very strong glass of beer in Asheville. What they're trying to do in terms of cooperative, sustainable living was inspirational, and though my place probably wouldn't ever be able to function quite the way theirs does, it was really good to observe and consider, and it will affect my future handling of the garden and property in general.
Ben is a kind and considerate guest. He was a pleasure to get to know and a wonderful guest. He is welcome back anytime.
