Location, convenience, privacy describe this apartment which is part of the main floor of my home. You will be staying near downtown in an 1880s "Queen Anne" home with modern conveniences, and you can park just outside your door. As an added attraction, some beautiful black bears enjoy meandering through my yard, and though I can't guarantee that you will see them, a sighting is a distinct possibility.
Welcome to our beautifully appointed three-room suite on the main floor of this lovingly restored, owner occupied, 1880’s “Queen Anne” home. Although we are located very near to the lively downtown Asheville area, the large lot is surrounded by trees and lush vegetation which affords a great deal of privacy and the feeling that you are “away from it all”. We are located at the base of Town Mountain, just a short walk to downtown as well as neighborhood restaurants, coffee houses, shopping and entertainment. There are fireplaces in each of the rooms, yes, even the bathroom which also features a large glass shower and fluffy towels. The bedroom has a queen size bed with fresh linens. Just off the living/dining area there’s a “mini” kitchen complete with bar sink, under-counter refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven and a Keurig beverage maker. You can have your morning coffee or unwind at the end of the day while enjoying a view of the western mountains from your private deck adjacent to the bedroom. Whether you are visiting us for business or pleasure, when you come home to relax, you will be able to access your Netflix and other accounts on the 40” Sony Bravia smart TV. There’s also a Blu-ray DVD player for your convenience, and of course there’s free wi-fi. You may park your vehicle just outside one of the two private entrances, and although we don’t leave the light on for you, a welcoming light comes on if you drive in after dark.

My wife and I moved to Asheville from Houston, TX in 1989. We restored a wonderful old house in the Chestnut Hills Historic district where we accomplished our dream of having a bed and breakfast. Now I live in another "one of a kind" house only a few blocks from the B&B that we started. Much of my time is spent mentoring young men in my church and facilitating a grief recovery program.
We chose Asheville because the mountains offer a sense of peace and tranquility not found in many other places. Also, we were attracted here because of the fascinating mix of people who call Asheville home. Asheville has wonderful restaurants comparable to many of our favorites in Houston. Also to be found in Asheville are the Symphony, Asheville Community Theater, and outstanding medical facilities. We were drawn here by the Blue Ridge Parkway, The Biltmore Estate, The Folk Art Center and the like. I have appreciated such things as a huge farmers market for fresh produce, and also excellent shopping for groceries in our local stores.
I love the natural beauty of the area and enjoy taking long walks in the nearby mountains or having a picnic lunch on a big rock in the middle of a rushing stream.
Asheville is very simply a great place to vacation and live.
