About this listing

At Home in Asheville! Nestled in the woods and within walking distance to Beaver Lake, our studio apartment is convenient to downtown, I26, and UNC Asheville. Clean and private with a fully stocked kitchenette. Luxury linens. Fresh flowers. Come retreat with us. Fresh baked sourdough bread (request in advance).

The space

Come enjoy the quiet seclusion of our studio apartment, conveniently located in an upscale neighborhood in Asheville. Nestled in a wooded area, this apartment is three miles from downtown and less than half a mile to the interstate (easy drive to Biltmore Estate and great hiking). The apartment boasts a fully stocked kitchen (stove top, microwave, refrigerator, though no oven), a plush queen size bed, a private bathroom with shower, leather love seat, large closet, outdoor hammock, off-street parking, and a private entrance with covered porch. Idyllic Beaver Lake is a half-mile walk through the neighborhood (no lake view from apartment). At the lake, guests can fish (catch and release only), walk/jog (1.5 mile loop), picnic on the large grassy areas, and/or enjoy the sunset. Free parking available at the lake and the nearby bird sanctuary if you prefer to drive.

This studio apartment (400 square feet) feels spacious with vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors, lovely porch, and quiet view of trees. The kitchen includes a refrigerator, microwave, coffee pot (with coffee), and stove top (no oven). We've stocked the cabinets for light cooking, and we keep some condiments in the fridge. High thread count linens and the most comfortable bed are included with this rental. We live upstairs, so if you need anything please just knock on our door. Otherwise, we will allow you to enjoy the total privacy this studio offers. LGBTQ+ friendly space.

Guest access

Guests will have their own parking spot, an outdoor area with hammock and a fire pit, use of fast wifi, TV and BluRay DVD (no cable but plenty of DVDs), and their own kitchen and bath.

Interaction with guests

When you arrive we will be available to greet you and answer any questions you have about the area. We offer guests total privacy, and the set up of the apartment allows for this. You enter your space on the opposite side of the house from where our entrance is. We are always accessible by phone or text if you need anything during your stay.

Other things to note

Please leave the studio in the same condition you found it. If you require supplies that are not available, let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you.

We have a small outdoor cat that lives on the property (Midnight), but she does not go inside the rental space and linens for the rental do not come in contact with the cat. Most guests never even see our cat. She prefers to bask in the sun on our front porch or to disappear into the woods to do what cats do.

Guests must be able to navigate stairs. Several steps, spaced out, make up our stone and mulch path.

Amanda and Andy were brilliant friendly hosts and sent us a fantastic set of recommendations for things to see and do in the local area. This was extremely useful and helped us make the most of our trip! They also sent messages to make sure we were having a great time whilst we were in Asheville. We had a great time!

Quaint and comfortable apartment that's within 15 min or less of everything downtown. Solid hiking and kayaking is 30-45 min away. Everything was clean and comfortable. The view is of a wooded area that's relaxing and peaceful. Amanda kept in touch the entire time to make sure we were all set.

Amanda and Andy were great hosts and made our stay in Asheville so comfortable and enjoyable! The room was cozy and a perfect fit for me, my husband, and our 4-month-old. They even made special accommodations for my baby. I have nothing but good things to say about "At Home in Asheville" and our sweet hosts! They also gave us a lot of EXCELLENT recommendations, which I suggest you explore. Thank you again, Andy and amanda!

If looking for a place to stay in Asheville, look no further! Andy & Amanda's place At Home in Asheville is pure perfection! Fantastic quiet & private location under a canopy of trees a few minutes drive from Downtown Asheville. Exceptionally friendly hosts, they had freshly roasted coffee available for us when we arrived! Perfect space for 2 to enjoy a relaxing stay.

We had SUCH a great stay in Asheville, and your apartment was a perfect little hideaway to lay down our heads and get a little respite from city life. It's a large studio with a small kitchen area with the essentials and more. The bed was crazy comfy and Amanda's hiking and dining recommendations were spot on. Curaté, White Duck Taco, Early Girl Eatery, Catawba Falls, Horse + Hero were some highlights. We couldn't have asked for anything more. Thanks so much!

Amanda User ProfileAmanda is a superhost.

Before my husband and I married, we dreamed up Asheville as a perfect home: hiking, laid back people, cooler temperatures with endless sun, thriving art scene, incredible local food movement and, of course, beer culture. In 2011, life dealt us the incredible gift of a professor position at UNC Asheville; we packed our family and drove from Tucson, AZ to these mountains. We are a young family who enjoys playing outdoors, cooking big meals, reading, drawing, writing, and telling stories. We remain in love with all that this region has to offer, and we pride ourselves for knowing about the great entertainment options happening around town (many of which are free). We look forward to hosting you in Asheville soon.
