Amazing and relaxing

We had an amazing and relaxing time all while being able to bring our dogs with us. The place is serene and Michael was a pleasure to get to know. He made the most luxurious tea in the morning for us. Yum. Will definitely go back.

Secluded Respite Near Trendy River Arts District

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I recently stayed with our dog at this lovely spa/inn for a long weekend while exploring the Asheville area as a potential town for re-location. It's in an up and coming part of town, very close to the trendy "River Arts District" in the east side of West Asheville. The room is serenely decorated, filled with lots of natural light and a beautiful bathroom. It's a basement apt of sorts with a brand new separate but enclosed galley kitchen, appointed with all the necessary "stuff" one might need (except a microwave; there is one in the room which is too small and quite old). The room is situated off a large deck with a hot tub and privacy fencing, but the back of the home is completely wooded with a view of the mountains off in the distance. The owner was approachable and very easy to deal with. All in all, a sweet respite for our semi-business visit to this wonderful town. We will be back!

Mike the Owner provided wonderful customer service gave us tips on fun things to do in Asheville and the surrounding areas. The coffee service in the morning was exellent , the hottub was great after a long day of hiking and so was the Suana. The small apartement was a wonderful place for my wife and to spend our first aniversary I would highly recommend this property to anybody looking for a stay in Asheville.

Comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I enjoyed our stay. The bed is very comfortable and the room is light and airy. I enjoyed watching the sky in the morning through the large picture windows. The shower was also nice. We really prefer the West Asheville area so this spot was great. Oh and the coffee was tasty, a really nice treat!
Thanks again!

Totally relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here for a week with our dog. We had a great time in Asheville in general. We liked how close this location is to West Asheville restaurants, the Arts District, downtown and the Blue Ridge Parkway.

The apartment is super cute and has everything you could need. We used the hot tub every night. It was also very dog friendly which we appreciate. There is also a park right down the street which was great to walk the dog around.

Michael was a great host. He was very helpful in telling us where to go for good food (we went to the Sunny Point Cafe three times!). He also left coffee and tea each morning which was definitely appreciated. We liked that we could text him quick questions or updates and he was always accessible.

We definitely want to stay again!

A superior place to stay.

  • 5 of 5
Everything was great -- just what I wanted. Michael was an excellent host. Low key most of the time but happy to help when I needed it. He gave good tips on places to visit and even dropped me in town on my first night after giving a tour. The space was clean, airy, quiet, and very relaxing. Tea was provided in the morning and the house was well heated. I would definitely go back again. Thanks for the great hospitality!
