We will make sure you get the keys and apartment access, but otherwise, you probably won't see us. A comprehensive guest manual includes lots of information about the neighborhood.
A quiet and small apartment building in an old industrial/manufacturing area in Old City, with elevator or stairs, and a secure lobby. Superb new windows minimize street noise. The occasional clip-clop of a horse-drawn carriage on the street below might make you feel you're back in Benjamin Franklin's neighborhood - and you are!
There's no smoking in our loft, and we expect our guests to treat our lovely belongings with care. We request you remove your shoes in the apartment to protect the lovely old floors and make it a bit quieter for our neighbors.
We live much of the year in Asheville, North Carolina, in a sweet bungalow in the 5 Points neighborhood - a perfect base from which to explore this exciting region. The rest of the year we are exploring the U.S. and the world, living and learning. Have traveled and lived many years overseas in business and diplomacy, love the outdoors, whether mountains, water or urban vistas. Keen on organic, fair-trade and local business, wherever we are. We continue working and volunteering to support entrepreneurs in the food and beverage world. Enjoy brewery and winery visits, museums and music. Eclectic neighborhoods, local color and eateries. As hosts, we hope to provide a lovely, comfortable home away from home for our guests, and encourage them to enjoy all that Asheville has to offer. Our loft in Philadelphia is another wonderful spot to spend some time. As experienced travelers, we appreciate what it's like to welcome strangers into your home - as your guests, we respect your home as if it were our own, and that means with care.
