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.

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!

Quiet Gem

  • 5 of 5
We arrived in heavy snow and Michael stayed in touch with us on our arrival day to let us know about alternative parking and even brought us a little snack with our coffee the next morning since we got a slow start after the late night. The room was light, confortable, and so peaceful - we loved coming back at the end of the day to take a dip in the hot tub and sink into the amazing bed. Michael gave us some restaurant recommendations that were wonderful and some of the best meals we had in Asheville. The River Arts district is full of such amazing food and businesses - it was lovely to be able to discover all the shops, breweries, and food options so close to where we were staying. When we come back to Asheville, we hope to stay at the Sanctuary again!

Awesome host, great experience

  • 5 of 5
Can't say enough good things about our stay at the Asheville Sanctuary. Michael is very helpful in providing recommendations for dining/etc, and he makes a mean pot of coffee! Close to everything you could want to do in Asheville - yet there's a sense of 'away from it all' that made our stay unforgettable. Looking forward to our next trip - will definitely book again!
