Spacious, private, and lovely, this one-bedroom apt is on the lower level of our new three-story home. Enter through your own private entrance and enjoy your own deck within the woods. You’re in the woods but 5-7 minutes away from all the major attractions, downtown, Biltmore Estate, Biltmore Village, the Blue Ridge Parkway and River Arts District.
Majestic trees, eclectic mix of housing styles and the 19-acre Kenilworth Lake – a 10 minute walk from the house - makes walking here wonderful.

The space

We were chosen by a senior AirBnB staff to be the place they stayed at. "The two of you are the definition of what it means to be a remarkable AirBnB host. The care you put into the host-guest relationship is noticed and truly appreciated."

Another recent guest said "“You guys were amazing, by far the best AirBnB stay I have ever had! Out of the numerous stays I have had through AirBnB, this was my best trip by far."

Spacious, very private, peaceful and lovely, this one-bedroom apartment is on the lower level of a 2013 built, three-story, local notable artist’s home. It has filtered water, a mini-fridge, microwave, and coffee maker.

Situated in a quiet, historic Asheville neighborhood – Kenilworth - there is lots of natural light through windows that face the woods. Enter through your own private entrance and enjoy your own deck overlooking the lush woods for three seasons, or a partial mountain view when the leaves are down. It is very private giving you all the space you need.
Tall, mature trees face your entrance and apartment, giving the visual perspective of being in a tree house. You hear the sounds of Asheville in the woods, everything from the train toot, to the plentiful birds, to the foxes in the neighborhood.

This special hide-away is centrally located & 5-10 minutes to just about all of Asheville's major destinations, including Downtown, Biltmore Estate, Blue Ridge Parkway, Biltmore Village, and River Arts District. Sleeps up to 3-4 with a master bedroom, sleeping nook off the living room with a full sized bed, and room for air mattresses in the living room. A one-of-a kind custom made wooden pallet bed frame holds the extremely comfortable king sized bed, with luxurious linens. The living room couch can be used for sleeping for the extra teenager. LGBT, family & kid friendly.
Calming colors, organic cork floors throughout and eco-friendly.

We have a dog and two cats and while our AirBnB guests are in their own quarters, we have found it becomes too complicated to allow other pets. As such, we cannot accept reservations with pets.

Lynn is an Asheville artist, who has shown nationally and can guide you to some of the most interesting art related places in town (in addition to her own River Arts District studio). Lynn also gives 2-3 day individual (or multiple people) artist retreats at her studio. Special Retreat discount for people who are our AirBnB guests.

Jake is an ethics and compliance consultant. He is considered an accomplished chef by all who have dined at the house, and for stays of four or more nights, schedules permitting, it would give him pleasure to create a gourmet breakfast for you for one morning of your stay (included in the price).

This is a gem! Jake is an exceptional host! He knows so much about Asheville and gave us great recommendations! He even had a homemade treat for us when we arrived. The property is close to downtown yet in the woods. We enjoyed mornings on the deck with our coffee as much as we enjoyed the sights of the city! It was a perfect choice for us and we would definitely stay here again!

Jake was an extremely attentive host. He came downstairs to greet us and show us around, and was very communicative with phone calls and emails before, during, and after our stay. The filtered water, snacks, and personal touches (one of the guests was getting married, so they gave us some prosecco), were unexpected and something we really appreciated. The space was roomy and clean, and we loved the decor!

What a great spot! Excellent hosts. Unit is better than expected. This was our first airbnb experience and Jake and Lynn have set the bar very high for us. We plan to visit Asheville again and will definitely book here again.

I can't think of a better place to stay for a visit to Asheville! Jake's place is centrally located making it easy to get downtown - but also removed so that you can enjoy the peacefulness of the mountains. Jake is great with communication and the place itself is beautiful and clean! 5 stars all around!
