About this listing

My place is about 10 minutes from Downtown Asheville and 10 minutes from the top of the Blue Ridge Parkway...far enough away from Asheville that you get the quiet and space of the outdoors while being close to the action of Downtown Asheville. There are 2 resident hawks, random turkeys, lots of birds and a beautiful garden to wander through. You’ll love my place because of the calming atmosphere and beautiful quaintness. My place is good for solo adventurers, business travelers, and pets.

The space

My space is very calm, open, colorful and warm. It is simple but clean and welcoming. It is a small home though, so the space is intimate. If you are wanting to not have much overlap with me, then this may not be the place for you. I do stay out of the way though unless you would like to chat :)

Guest access

You will have access to your room, your own bathroom, the kitchen, the living room, the garden, and the outdoor screened in room. You can even sleep outside in the screened in room if you would like.

Interaction with guests

I've lived in Asheville for over 10 years, so I have a plethora of knowledge on the local spots, the waterfalls, hikes and any other fun thing you would like to do.

Other things to note

The bedroom is very simple. It has a double bed with 1 window and a large closet for storing your things.

Our stay at Shannon's place was a breeze. Only around a 10-minute drive from downtown Asheville and around 30 minutes to get onto the Blue Ridge Parkway, we were able to get to our favorite restaurants and trails with equal ease. This home was very cozy and clean, and Shannon was welcoming and a great communicator. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet spot to stay within reasonable distance of popular hiking trails or downtown Asheville!

Shannon's place is really nice. An ideal location if you have a car, I had a bike and was not too bad to get too. Access to the blue ridge parkway though again in a bike it was a hard uphill cycle to it. Shannon was very friendly and made me feel very relaxed. Bed was comfy and bathroom was good. Shame it isn't a little closer to town! In a car it's not far at all though.

This was my first time using airbnb! Shannon was a great host. I booked very last minute and she was still able to accommodate me. The place was very quiet and quaint. An excellent home to stay at if you're looking for a restful night. I slept in until 10. It was also very clean! About a couple miles away from an Ingles, you can grab some groceries and a beer to make dinner or drive a few more miles down and order food from all the many restaurants around. It would have been a great place to stay as well if you are looking to spend the day in Asheville. Only a short drive to downtown but far enough that the home is quiet and peaceful.

Shannon's place was just what I was looking for. It's just far enough away from the city to be peaceful and quiet while maintaining convenience to everything Asheville has to offer. The space was clean and cozy. Shannon's communication was fast and accurate.

Shannon's place was very quiet, close to town and very clean. Shannon was a great host with tons of recommendations. She has flowers in the room and made my stay easy and super chill. Thanks!

My stay here was great! Shannon was very responsive and provided some local recommendations. The house is easily accessible but in a quiet neighborhood and feels secluded. Plus, her cat is really friendly!

She is an excellent hostess who provides a comfortable casual location.

I am an artist who co-owns/runs 3 businesses in Asheville, NC. One is an acting conservatory; the other is a race series that creates unique, fun, crazy races that are geared towards raising money for non-profits; and the last one is a bio-energetic balancing business located in a wellness center. I'm very quiet, respectful, easy to get along with, and love meeting new people.
