Cozy & cheery, this spacious 500+ sf private basement apartment catches the morning sun through double French doors. It has a private patio entrance, large combined living & sleeping area, full bathroom, and a new kitchenette. In the summer, lounge by the in-ground pool. The surrounding neighborhood is quaint & quiet. Close to Warren Wilson College, with easy access to Asheville & Black Mountain, it's a perfect place to relax & unwind after your mountain activities. Come visit & stay a while!

The space

While the room is spacious, it has a cozy & relaxing atmosphere. In addition to a full double bed, there is a pillow top daybed with separate trundle bed in the corner. The couch is comfy enough to sleep on, and a twin air mattress is available as well. The double closet is large enough to accommodate all your belongings.
The kitchenette has a medium-sized dorm refrigerator, microwave oven, toaster oven & coffee pot. A selection of coffee, tea, hot cocoa & hot cider is provided. (Please note that this is a kitchenette, not a full scale kitchen.)

When you return from hiking the mountains or visiting Asheville, relax while sitting out on the private patio or poolside. Feel free to use the pool during the summer. Take a walk around the neighborhood or at the local park just down the road.
Whether you are single, a couple, a small group of friends, or a family with kids, you are welcome here!

Come to the mountains!!

Guest access

This large private room is in the walk-in basement of our brink rancher home, while our family lives on the main upper floor. The basement also is home to our office, laundry room, and storage area. There is a private entrance through charming French double doors. A quick trip through the gate & side yard brings you to the street. Come & go as you please.

Interaction with guests

I am self-employed, so I'll be available most days to answer questions & make suggestions. I have 3 teens at home, a cat and our family dog ~ Princess. She likes to bark at new people, so please don't try to get acquainted unless we are present. She'll be kept in the upper fenced yard while you are staying.

Other things to note

During school days, life starts about 7 a.m. for us. It's a slow start, and not very rambuctious, but you may hear us walking around. On weekends, well, they are teenagers, so if I see them before noon, I consider myself lucky!

The pool should be open by the beginning of May. Please check before making reservations if this is a major factor in your decision. In order to respect our neighbors, I ask that after 10 pm there is only quiet pool time. Feel free to enjoy till 11 pm, but please keep noise level to a minimum from 10 to 11.

If you are staying more than 5 days, you are welcome to use the washer & dryer.

Such a lovely area! Loved swimming in the pool and if you want a good night's sleep this is the place. 10/10

A very comfortable place to stay in quiet neighborhood located very close to both Black Mountain and Asheville. Nicely decorated and everything a traveler may need at your finger tips. Only wish we had been there when the weather was warmer - the pool looked very inviting. I'm sure it is lots of fun for summer guests.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Lydia. A nice open space with lots of thoughtful touches. We especially enjoyed the fresh fruit in the kitchenette, which was nicely stocked.

The space was perfect, just what I was looking for. There's room for plenty if you're with a big group but the price is great even if it's just you. The area is secluded downstairs for privacy but very neat and clean. Lydia was a perfect host- even had a fruit basket ready for me! I booked short notice (day-of) and had to check in late (around 11 PM) and it was no issue. Can't recommend this room enough!
