About this listing
Come share our amazing home, tucked in the trees at the top of a mountain! Your spacious, private apt is on the lower floor of our home, with a separate entrance. The room has no blinds, yet no one can see you. There's a well-stocked breakfast frig (local eggs, milk, butter, bread/muffins, nut butters) etc. The main room itself is 20'x20' PLUS the roomy desk space, and the kitchenette! You also have a private 400 Sq Ft deck with table, chairs and a well-loved wooden porch swing for two.
We're on a centralized hillside location at the end of a paved, sparsely populated private road with beautiful mountain views. Your space has a private side entrance and two private decks. Large private bath with shower on the same lower level just a few steps from your room.
The room is mostly windows - it's airy and light. There are no blinds, yet no one can see you. You're tucked in the trees on the side of a mountain. So if you are looking for a dark cave to sleep in late, this is probably not your place.
If however, you'd like to awaken in the middle of a forest to mountain views, sunlight playing across the valley and the promise of a great day in the Blue Ridge, then this is your place!
When people walk into the space, they often stop and breathe in deeply as they look around. We can feel them relax -- so nice! They often say, "Oh, this is beautiful... way better than any photo."
You'll hear songbirds and tree-frogs in season. If you're lucky, you'll even get to see our white squirrels!

Interaction with guests
We work from home and our schedule varies. We love meeting people from all over the world!
We are in a very quiet area with almost no traffic. Our house is close to a wonderful variety of forests, waterfalls, restaurants, shops, galleries, theaters - and of course the World Famous Biltmore House and the breathtaking beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
We live twenty minutes from Asheville Airport, but we are not close to public transport - you will want to have a car.
Other things to note
Please note: Our nightly rate varies with season, and on weekends and other lower/higher demand periods. There is no basic price setting available to hosts to give a price RANGE.
We have two twin size foam mats that works for young children or teens. Technically speaking, parents with up to four children could be accommodated.
Accessories for light cooking include a coffee maker, French Press, Milk Frother, electric teapot, microwave, convection toaster oven, hotplate, and small refrigerator stocked with breakfast items. Winter breakfast offerings include local farm eggs, whole grain local breads, homemade muffins, cold cereal, hot cereal (steel cut oatmeal, or others) and toppings (nuts, dried fruit). We provide coffee and tea, whole milk, and sweeteners. You'll find DVDs near the TV.
We appreciate the quiet of our neighborhood but we don't expect our guests to be on "Library Rules." We do not smoke and do not allow smoking in or near the house. Light alcohol is OK - no drugs please. To sum up - respect everything and everyone.

My wife and I were both born in small farming communities, Terri in Iowa and Eric in Upstate, NY. We are both self-employed and work from our beautiful home in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
We moved here in 2009 from the Los Angeles area - we wanted to get back to nature! We love it here and enjoy sharing our experience with other people.
We are both singers and dearly love music. Terri is also a voice coach and Eric plays guitar and writes music. Both of us have been involved in the personal growth/human potential arenas most of our adult lives and have led seminars all over the country. Terri is a brilliant relationship consultant.
We try to eat healthy, but are not fanatical about it. We are accepting of others beliefs. We are non-smokers and ask our guests to refrain from smoking in or near the house.
Eric speaks a little bit of Spanish, but not fluently...
We love people in general and we look forward to your visit with us!
