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.

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 with potted black bamboo, 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

Absolutely beautiful two story home with large yard -- clean and lovely with great amenities

Review submitted: April 5, 2014   Date of arrival: March 29, 2014

My wife and our two young boys (ages 5 and 3) and I just spent a week at The Willows of Asheville, as it is known. It is a lovely home and we had a wonderful stay. We'd happily stay at the Willows again in a second. It will be our first choice the next time we're in Asheville.

The house is spacious, beautifully decorated, clean, and very well maintained. The kitchen is roomy and all the appliances work really well. Each of the bedrooms is great. The bedding is especially comfy and warm and nice. The towels in the bathroom are some of the fluffiest we've ever come across, including in fine hotels. The family room is a special treat. There is a chair with a built-in foot massager (!). And, there is a 3D capable TV with Netflix and all the cable networks.

The yard is bigger than I expected -- perfect for two boys to run around it. We didn't get a chance to use the grill or the screened in seating area in the back yard, but appreciated that they were there.

The location is extremely convenient. The nearest Starbucks is only about a 4-5 minute drive away. The big grocery stores (Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, Harris Teeter) are only about 7-8 minutes away.

The hosts were considerate and helpful and a pleasure to deal with. This is truly a five star property.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: This family was magnificent: not only did they treat our beloved home with the same care as we do, they left a wonderful parting note for us to find in the kitchen. We would be delighted to host this spectacularly fine family whenever they visit Asheville and hope that they are representative of all our future guests.
