Cozy+Natural+Light+Modern. Walk to downtown. Private space with separate entrance, private deck with outdoor eating area. One bedroom: Queen size memory foam bed. Living room: open to bedroom with smart TV. Full bathroom: large rain shower. Kitchenette: mini-fridge, microwave, filtered water, coffee/tea. Extras: ceiling fans, AC/Heat, free street parking in front of the house. No access to the rest of the house - just this space. Quiet Historic Montford neighborhood - 10 minute walk to downtown!

The space
Our home is a Healthy Green Built Home built in 2014 with an all new build-out for this private Airbnb space finished in October 2017. The Airbnb space is on our lower level and there is no access to the upper floors where we live. The Airbnb space is still above ground. Every attention to detail has been made for your ultimate comfort from the use of space, privacy, convenience, and tons of natural light. That portion of our house is all yours. The interior is meticulously clean and minimal with some of my artwork throughout the space to add a pop of color.

Architectural details include locally harvested Ash wood benches, shelves, and countertops. The spacious walk-in shower has a fun, wavy ceramic tile and granite floors with a rain shower plus an additional shower wand.

Other amenities include all linens and towels, organic/natural bath products, ROKU streaming TV and movies, adjustable heat/AC, ceiling fans, iron + mini-ironing board, a closet, hangers, a mini refrigerator, microwave, coffee pod machine, hot water boiler, plates, bowls, glasses, utensils, knives, bottle openers, fresh filtered water, sugar, half & half and an assortment of snacks, coffee and teas.

Just a note about the “kitchen” - Asheville does not permit an oven/stove in short-term rental units. Airbnb requires a kitchenette: a microwave, mini-refrigerator, coffee maker, and hot water boiler. So... To be in ordinance with both Airbnb and Asheville, we have only those required and approved appliances - but you’re here to EAT/DRINK Asheville!

Your private outdoor deck space is a welcome respite from all that eating and drinking... there are 100 year oaks shading your sunny south-facing deck with table, chairs, cushions and light-filled space. A perfect spot to relax anytime of day. Or bring the outdoors in by opening both of the massive double French doors to the deck. The quiet and charming neighborhood is full of trees and wildlife. At times you can forget you are just a short distance from downtown.

Where you’ll be

Asheville, North Carolina, United States

Historic Montford is one of the oldest and most established neighborhoods in Asheville and the proximity to downtown (which is pretty incredible) makes it an ideal location. Not only that, it’s a real neighborhood with charming tree lined streets, a mix of historic and modern / green-built homes, friendly neighbors, old trees and native plant gardens, and some fine local food - all within steps to the heart of downtown Asheville. Please note that we are in the heart of these magnificent mountains so there will be hills to manage when on foot - throughout the neighborhood and in town.

To walk to downtown it is about a 10 minute walk (HALF the walk is UP HILL) to the top of Montford Avenue where you cross the bridge to enter the downtown area. The Asheville tourist office is right there too, and they are incredibly helpful and offer local bookings to points of interest. There is also a hop-on/hop-off bus tour of Asheville that stops at the tourist office as well. Worth a stop in!

Culture and other experiences right in Montford include: The Montford Park Players Shakespearean Outdoor Globe Theatre. Montford Arts Festival. Montford Studio Stroll. Montford Holiday Home Tour.

Nearby: Montford Greenway connects to UNC Asheville Botanical Gardens foot paths + Farmers Market on Saturdays, also on the campus of UNC Asheville.

Artist/designer with a worldly view on life. When traveling I love to dig in to the culture and meet the locals. My most enjoyable experiences are when I’m really living in the moment; taking in the atmosphere, the pace, the local food, the unique smells, the sounds, and of course the arts, crafts, and architecture... but also the tiny details that create a bit of magic and create a real sense of place.
