PLEASE read property description! Walk to downtown Asheville yet stay in a quiet residential neighborhood Central/North Asheville. Location so close to many entertainment, eating establishments, grocery and shopping. Minutes drive to Blue Ridge Parkway (from I 240 in East Asheville), Biltmore Mansion, the Arts District and a quick jump onto the interstates to hiking, rafting and waterfalls. THIS IS A CABIN-LIKE EXPERIENCE (without fireplace). A HOMESTAY (shared space in building but no door between units) is terrace level of a DUPLEX (not a basement, there is a basement below on parking level), very spacious with kitchenette, off street parking, eclectic decor from my travels. Owner stays in other unit (upstairs) on street level. Columbian coffee with agave nectar provided and filtere...PLEASE read property description!
