My wife was terrified because of the movie hostel (and thoughts of kids in sleeping bags). Thankfully, the house was great, clean, and what a perfect location. We could walk to just about any downtown venue despite recent knee surgery. They have make your own...More

My partner and I love this place and stay every time we are in Asheville. The location is perfect, only a 5 minute walk to downtown, the rooms are clean (but simple), and the price is great. Parking on the street is usually pretty easy.

Rude and weird is a good heading for this review. As I always say, guests review themselves. Thankfully, our guests have traditionally been amazing. So this is a very rude and weird review to bother responding to. Someone is desperate for attention, so the takeaway...More
