“Best Hotel Alternative in Asheville”
Reviewed 31 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We have stayed in a lot of vacation rentals, B&Bs, and hotels, and this was one of the best. We will definitely be going back. In the past we have stayed at the Grand Bohemian hotel in Biltmore Village- which was great and dog friendly. But this year we have a new baby, in addition to our toddler, and an au pair in tow. So we were originally looking for two hotel rooms or a rental house. The problem with most rental houses is they are completely unstocked (bring your own toilet paper) and partial weeks are not always allowed. And in hotels it is such a pain to let the dog out in the morning, or get a coffee in pajamas without braving the lobby. As my husband said, the best thing about Green Gables was that it was totally kid friendly without LOOKING kid friendly- it was tastefully and luxuriously decorated and would equally suit an older couple or ladies' getaway.

Green Gables was PERFECT. The owner, Georgia, lives in a separate apartment on the second floor of the house. So we had the entire ground floor of the house, its porches and yard all to ourselves, and we only saw Georgia when we arrived. There is even has a keyless code-accessed door so you don't have to "check in" to get the keys. Georgia runs it like a European pension- she provides everything you would get at a B&B, but there are no other guests to contend with so much more privacy. She stocks breakfast items in the fridge (milk, fruit, bread), shampoos and soaps in bathrooms, etc. We did not need to do any grocery shopping upon arrival which was a huge relief- the house was INCREDIBLY WELL STOCKED: salt, pepper, coffee and filters, paper towels, a hair dryer, a full size fridge with ice already made, gas stove, washer, dryer, even everything we needed for the kids- pack n plays, high chair, baby bath, etc. The fenced yard was perfect for us to be able to get up in the mornings and let our toddler and dog play in the yard while we got organized to go hiking or walk downtown. YES WALK DOWNTOWN- even with a stroller it took us 20 minutes to get to the very center of Asheville on foot. It is a great location! Georgia just remodeled the laster bedroom to include a huge ensuite bathroom with double sinks and a deep soaking tub. It was very nice, clean, modern, and the perfect space for our family.

Best things:
Full washer and dryer means less to pack
Fenced yard is secure for kids and/or dog and covered porches are great for relaxing
Decor is historic and tasteful- not a tacky kid friendly place
Location- walk to all the best restaurants in 20 minutes or less
Fully stocked with everything you would possibly need
Modern kitchen with full size fridge and gas stove
Super clean (and we are extremely picky on this point)- absolutely no evidence of past guests

Liked best: The fenced yard and covered porch were fantastic for mornings with kids and dog- no need to go down hotel elevators to let the dog out.

“Charming and well appointed”
Reviewed 24 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

person found this review helpful

We loved our stay at Green Gables. The house was well appointed. My only real complaints would be that even the steel could not bring back the kitchen knives to very sharp. But we were not really cooking/chopping. And the claw foot tub is a bit small as a shower. All was as advertised with lots of thoughtful amenities.

“Beautiful Old House”
Reviewed 21 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

This house was filled with beautiful antiques and was like being at your grandmother's house. It was very comfortable for our group of five. It had everything one would need in a kitchen right down to a grill for our pancakes in the morning. A downfalls was the small bathroom right off the kitchen, and although very cute, the bathtub was very small.

“Outstanding Home ... Great Host”
Reviewed 18 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Georgia is a designer and an architect and those talents shine through in this lovely home. Her communication is timely and beyond thorough! (Really, Georgia, your Information Book has outgrown itself!!! LOL). The house is roomy, the beds have GREAT linens, the kitchen stocked with every basic need (including spices, teas, coffee, sugars, honey, etc)...even a welcome bottle of wine.

The location gives easy access to downtown and the interstate. There are definitely places to go within walking distance, weather permitting. (It was too cold during our visit.). Lots of good restaurants! The house is well-insulated and quiet.

This is a wonderful home for singles, families, couples. I would hesitate to recommend for anyone mobility challenged because of the bathtub which is adorable but requires a big step UP to get into. As Georgia is so thorough, she likely has an alternative for this **so please check with her if this is an issue for you.** I would hate for you to miss this wonderful experience if she has an accommodation for this. I just didn't this to ask.

Liked best: Beautiful home with every amenity. Georgia is a plus as she is delightful!
Liked least: This is just a personal preference and would not affect your stay ... I prefer firmer mattresses.
