“Very Good Housing Accomidations with Limited Walkability”
Reviewed July 4, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We stayed in the IVY the week before 4th of July which was perfect for us two adults and our 3 year old. The floors, walls, finishes and bathrooms were very nice and was in fact surgically clean. We enjoyed being in the woods but yet a short drive from most places we wanted to see. The kitchen comes with, spices for grilling, paper towels, laundry soap and soap for the sink. Nice touch on the welcome drinks and snacks.

The hot tub was clean, worked well and modern! The grill ignighter did not work but a quick battery change resoled that.

Only complaints: Guest bedroom door (where the little man slept) really was noisy when we tried to sneak out- needs some WD-40. Otherwise the beds were just a little tough to get into and I am 6 foot tall. The height was just a bit high but the extra storage in the draws makes sense. Minor detail.....

The only other thing that's prevents a 5 star rating is the fact that the grounds need something extra. I think we were expecting to jump onto a hiking trail or have some kid like activities on-site. Not a big deal but this place feels more like an adult stay than something that is super kid friendly.

All in all I would say 4.5 if they allowed a half star rating.

The IVY itself -4.5 stars
Bed Comfort-5
Clean-5
Hot Tub-5
Laundry Setup-3
Details and amenities in Ivy-4.5
Grounds- 3
Contact info for Mgt onsite - 5
Location -3.5
Walkability--1 (not walkable to much)

“So Clean and Comfortable!”
Reviewed June 23, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Five of us stayed in the Blue Ridge Cottage for three nights for a girls family reunion weekend. The cottage is very nicely decorated with modern comfortable furnishings, and a well-equipped kitchen. Most important, it is clean, clean, clean! The linens and bedding all appear new, as do the small kitchen appliances, pots, pans, dishes, etc. The owners obviously take great pride in providing a clean, welcoming, quality rental property. The small assortment of snacks and condiments is a nice touch, and was much appreciated. This cottage was a joy to relax in after a day of sightseeing. The back porch is large and, for our group, provided a nice extra space for reading, morning coffee, spreading out a bit. The hot tub and view of the woods was so relaxing.
We enjoyed day trips to Chimney Rock State Park and The Biltmore. We ate dinner twice in Asheville. We all wish we could have stayed one more day. We would have chosen a float trip activity.

We were so impressed with the cleanliness and excellent condition of the cabin. The owners have thought of everything needed to make our stay comfortable and memorable. Their attention to detail is evident in every aspect of the accommodations. The location was perfect with easy access to downtown Asheville and Biltmore Estate both within 20 minutes. The information we received with our confirmation was so helpful for planning our trip. Would recommend to anyone planning a trip to this beautiful area.

“Asheville Cottage was the best!!”
Reviewed April 13, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Stayed in the Poplar March 24 - 27, 2014. Lovely cottage!! Quiet, private and comfortable.
So clean and the hot tub was awesome!! It snowed one day and it was a special treat to get in a clean, warm hot tub and have a luxurious spa robe waiting. So cozy sitting in front of the gas fire. Many goodies were provided. Juices and coffee creamers were provided in the refrig. The sleep number bed was so comfortable! Great instructions for operating everything in the cottage. Did not want to leave this little piece of heaven and, for sure, would love to go back.

“Great Little Getaway!”
Reviewed January 30, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Asheville Cottages are everything they say they are. I have never stayed in a rental that was so clean before. They thought of everything you might need and the highest quality. When we arrived there was a bottle of sparkling juice to help us celebrate our 30th anniversary. Just another nice touch. They were the most caring, responsive and helpful owners I have ever rented from. We will definitely be staying there again.

“Perfect!!”
Reviewed January 17, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

I start by saying that we stayed in the Dogwood cabin. We found it to be located up in the woods yet not too far from the main road. We still felt private.We couldn't hear road noise or general noise from.the city. We were next to 2 other duplex style cabins, but our back deck had a privacy fence that nobody could see through and left only 1-2 feet from the ceiling so it kept things very private. The cleanliness of the cabin was nothing short of Outstanding!!! Every area was spotless! The extras provided in the cabin were great! Sleep number bed with built in speakers, heated bathroom floors and heated towel rack. Fireplace, hot tub, Infrared grill, dish network, washer and dryer. We wanted for absolutely nothing. As a quiet getaway for a couple, it's hard to beat. Instructions were left all over the cabin for certain things, showing that they thought of absolutely everything. I had to call and tell Tracie that I had accidentally broke a small pyrex dish. She was so nice and understanding she told me " Don't worry about it, I'm just glad your food wasn't ruined". We will definitely return to Asheville Cottages!!!! Thanks Manche Family!!!!

“comfortable and convenient”
Reviewed December 28, 2013 for a stay in December 2013

We stayed at the Bent Creek Cottage. It was clean and cozy. The linens and paper products were high quality. The kitchen had many essentials, enough for our Christmas dinner. The near-by grocery and restaurants were also very good. The hosts added more by supplying a lovely plate of treats, coffee, hot chocolate, oatmeal, and snacks. The cottage also had a nice selection of games and good material on the Asheville area. The hot tub with the winter sky made it an especially lovely location.
