Property Description

The Property:

Yarrow's Cottage is a private, 2 bedroom bungalow. It is located in the historic Montford neighborhood, just a few blocks from the heart of downtown Asheville.

There are heart of pine floors throughout and ceramic tile in the laundry, pantry and bathroom. It is eclectic, yet tastefully decorated with warm colors, antiques and comfy furniture. The kitchen is fully equipped with gas stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, garbage disposal, toaster oven and even filtered water. Next to the kitchen, the laundry room has a washer, dryer, iron and ironing board. The dining room comfortably seats 4-5 people, has lots of natural light and even has a fireplace. The living room is a comfy, relaxing spot to curl up with a good book and enjoy the wood burning fireplace or hang out and reminisce all the wonderful places you visited earlier in the day! It has a new queen sleeper sofa, with a memory foam comfortable. Next to the fireplace is a smart, flat screen TV with WiFi and HDMI/USB ports. DVD player as well.The master bedroom has a queen size bed and the 2nd bedroom has a full size bed. Both with plush bedding and linens. The kitchen, living room and both bed rooms have ceiling fans. There is central heat/air conditioning throughout, although most guests enjoy turning off the A/C, opening the windows and experiencing Asheville's mild temperature/low humidity mountain air. The front porch is a wonderful spot to sip your morning coffee, enjoy the edible/medicinal garden in the front yard or share an evening meal outdoors. There is also ample off street parking in the driveway.

The Neighborhood:

The Montford neighborhood is a wonderful destination in itself. It is one of the largest historic districts in the state. Most of the homes were built during the period of 1890 to the 1920's. Take an evening stroll down tree-lined streets and discover the amazing architectural styles of yesteryear. Beautiful gardens and stonework are abundant, as well. Stop by the Visitors Center and discover all the places and activities Western North Carolina has to offer.There's also a weekly farmer's market right behind the Visitors Center. Montford is home to an outdoor theater where the Montford Park Players perform Shakespearean plays. There are community parks and gardens, unique restaurants and even a fly fishing store. Montford is extremely pedestrian and bicycle friendly.

Getting Around :

The heart of downtown Asheville is a short 5-10 minute walk. There you'll find diverse restaurants and bars, coffee shops, art galleries, museums, eclectic shopping, amazing street performers, music halls and numerous breweries. Hop on the greenway, and follow Reeds Creek to the Botanical Gardens of Asheville or the University of North Carolina campus. It's about a 10 minute drive to the Biltmore Estate, the Grove Park Inn and the North Carolina Arboretum. You also might want to drive over to Hot Springs, NC (30 minutes) and soak in their private tubs by the French Broad River or explore the artistic town of Black Mountain, NC. Downtown Asheville is also quite bicycle friendly and there is a bus stop about 2 blocks away which can take you just about anywhere around Asheville. There are numerous taxi companies in town, as well.

Well maintained, simple and comfortable, circa 1920s cottage with all necessities. Excellent location for walking to shops and restaurants. . Stephanie is a pleasant and helpful landlady. The peach tree and grape vine provided fresh fruit and was a delicious plus. One of our best rental experiences.

We were incredibly pleased with Yarrows cottage. Stephanie went above and beyond with everything. Home was immaculate and you couldn't pick a better location if you want to enjoy a down town setting. Walkability, character, charm etc. Will definitely want to return.

We have stayed at a lot of different places in Asheville, from hotels to downtown condos to houses and this one was the best thu... Read More
