vacation rental description

Look no further! You found a great home in the most beautiful neighborhood in Asheville for your vacation. When you turn onto lush Cherokee Road from Charlotte Street, you will pass by The Manor Inn & Gatehouse, built in 1898, and enter one of Asheville's four designated local and National Register historic districts; Albemarle Park, a neighborhood filled with 'cottages' from the late 19th century that has attracted many travelers including actors Grace Kelly, Alec Guinness, Agnes Morehead and 'the father of rhythm and blues', Louis Jordan.

Albemarle Park is unique among Asheville's Historic Districts. Every single one of its significant structures is still intact and relatively unchanged today. The cottages were all given their own unique names; Clover, Rosebank, Brown Bear, Wildfell, Kalmia, Daffodil, Italdo (pronounced It'll Do), Chipmunk, Dahlia, to name a few. Your home is called The Willows at 16 Cherokee Road between Shamrock and The Crow's Nest--splendidly located one mile from downtown Asheville and one mile from the Grove Park Inn.

The Willows is a 2000 sq ft handsome grey stucco home with a large flat front yard. It was built in 1925. A custom stacked stone ring wall encloses two gardens and cedar tree at the front porch. There is comfortable patio furniture on the porch as well as a teak table for outdoor dining. Enjoy the covered sitting area in the back yard and outdoor grill. The home has brand new central air and heat, 2 zones--upstairs and downstairs. It also has a new Kohler whole-house generator so when the electricity goes out in the neighborhood, you are totally covered.

The interior of the home has a contemporary feeling with original hardwood floors and dim-able recessed lighting. There are 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, living room, tv room, basement, dining room & half bath. French doors open out to the front porch from the living room and dining room. There is high-speed wireless internet throughout the home.

The bedrooms are on the second floor. The Master bedroom has a King size bed, flat screen TV and its own bright full bathroom. A private wood deck accoutered, table with umbrella, and a comfy hammock is attached to the Master bedroom. The 2nd bedroom has a queen bed & dresser. The 3rd bedroom has a queen size bed and dresser. A full bath in hallway is shared by the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms.

The main floor consists of a fully equipped kitchen, dining room, stylish living room with a tuned 7 foot Yamaha grand piano, a modern gas fireplace, and a relaxing TV room with an automatic reclining sofa and 54-inch LED TV - Charter Cable, Pandora music & Neflix included. There is a basement with a washer and dryer. The driveway is shared with the neighbor and there are two private parking spaces for guests of The Willows.

traveler reviews for this asheville house rental

Wonderful place for a relaxing stay

Review submitted: August 8, 2014   Date of arrival: July 30, 2014

We had a wonderful stay at the Willows. The house is located in a beautiful historic area, very close to downtown Asheville. Michael John was very welcoming when we arrived. He showed us around the house and gave the keys. I loved how clean everything was, and all the nice touches, including very soft towels, dimmers, fresh flowers, fresh orchid plants, and herbs in the beautiful garden. The kitchen and bathrooms were stocked with all the necessities. The house is beautifully decorated. I loved reading about the history of the neighborhood. It was very quiet and relaxing to stay at the Willows. I wish we could have stayed longer.

Wonderful house in Asheville!!

Review submitted: July 22, 2014   Date of arrival: June 1, 2014

We spent the whole month of June of 2014 at the Willows. We had a wonderful stay at a gorgeous, very well kept home close to town. The house is located in a beautiful historical part of town. The front and backyard are very well kept with beautiful trees, planted herbs and various vegetables.
The inside of the house is really amazing with great bedding, an equipped kitchen with everything you might need and a wonderful tv room with the most comfortable sofa.
Since day one we felt right at home and we called it home!!
I could not say enough about the owners of the house. Both Michael and David are the best people you could deal with. They made us feel right at home from day one and took care of our every need.
We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation and would love to come back to the Willows!!!

Comfortable, beautifully appointed, great location in historic neighborhood!

Review submitted: June 9, 2014   Date of arrival: May 26, 2014

The Willows proved an excellent location for our recent reunion of college pals. The owners have done an outstanding job of decorating, furnishing and equipping this spacious home - provided many extras and special courtesies - and were attentive without being intrusive. Highly recommended.
