Asheville, NC Vacation- A Gem in the Middle of the Blue Ridge Mountains

We have been to Ashville several times over the years and have always had an amazing time. The area is known for amazing dining options, with lots of farm-to-table options available. The area has a thriving arts and music scene, with something for pretty much anyone’s tastes. Outdoors enthusiasts will love all of the options they have from hiking and biking to fishing at kayaking. And of course there is the Biltmore Estate.

We will highlight some great lodging options for your next vacation to Asheville, NC!

Immaculate Modern Cabin

We love the idea of having a cabin with amazing mountain views while only being ten minutes from all of the dining, shopping, and entertainment of downtown Asheville. With this cabin, you get just that! The home features three bedrooms and will sleep up to ten guests.

Another feature that sets this home apart is the covered porch! It runs the entire length of the house and has rocking chairs and a table for up to ten!

Outside there is a patio with fire pit with chairs and boulders for sitting around the fire. There is an open picnic area that highlights the long range views that the property offers. They also have a trail loop that is 1/3 of a mile in length. Amazing!

Green Gables

You will fall in love with this 1920’s home that is located right in downtown Asheville. The owner of the home is an interior designer and has worked hard to restore the home to its original state. We think it is beautiful. The home features two bedrooms and will sleep up to six guests. Each bedroom has its own wood-burning fireplace and seating area! The living area has a third fireplace, antique chandeliers, and restored wood floors.

The home is close to everything, many of which are an easy walk. In particular, the River Arts District is a seven minute walk. Sidewalk cafes, breweries, shopping, and of course art galleries fill this fun area. Biltmore Estate is just a four minute drive.

Added bonus: the home is both kid and pet friendly! The veranda and front yard are fenced and gated. Contact owner prior to booking to inform them of any pets you may wish to bring.

The Tree House

This cozy rental is located within walking distance of downtown Asheville, the Civic Center, the Botanical Gardens, and the entry to UNC-Asheville. The rental is an upstairs apartment and features two bedrooms that will sleep up to four guests. It is a charming home that was built in 1907. Much of the upstairs living spaces retain the original charm. While there is a kitchen in the unit, there is no oven or stove. That shouldn’t be an issues, since Asheville’s dining scene is pretty amazing.

This home is perfect for a couple’s getaway, a small family, or anyone the enjoys urban exploring during their vacations!
