We stayed in the Laurel cottage. It is attached to another but we never heard or saw anyone. They have a key pad on the door and give you an access code. Easy to use. The place is spacious inside for 2, incredibly clean. We have never stayed anywhere that is as impeccably clean as this one. Nice touches too. Stash tea in the kitchen. a basket on the counter with a few munchies and coffee. Cuisinart pans to cook with, great dishes and glassware. Bedroom has a sleep number bed and is very comfortable. bathroom is large with everything you need. Closet with lots of extra towels. They even supply Gilchrist and Soames soap and shampoo and conditioner. That is great if you forgot yours. Wifi code on the front of the book on the counter. Very reliable for my laptop, Ipad was a little iffy. Book on counter had tons of information in it about the area. They also encouraged their guests to write about area things they saw. That is fun so you can make further plans once you get here. Washer and dryer are clean and work great. Patio has a hot tub, grill and two chairs with a table. The hot tub was as clean as you would keep yours at home. I never get in anyone else's but we did get into this one. Great. The ceiling is a little low, I like night sky while in a hot tub but it is very private. We didn't use the grill. This cottage is tucked into a neighborhood and on a morning walk everyone was very friendly. Safe place. Nearby is a grocery store with fairly good stuff. Asheville is pretty close. There is also hiking near here. This is a great place to stay to explore the area. Easy on and off the highways.

“Great vacation rental - clean, clean clean!”
Reviewed July 22, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Asheville Cottages is in a perfect location. Everything we wanted to do was within 10 miles in one direction or another. The cottage was immaculate and had every amenity we could want. Everything was clearly marked and before I could wonder how to use something, directions showed up in just the right place!
So much better than a hotel room and competitively priced. We've stayed in many vacation rentals in the Asheville area. For a short term stay, this is our place now.

“NOTHING COULD BE FINER!!!”
Reviewed July 7, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This was our second stay at the "Cottages." In a word, our stay was GREAT. Every possible need was met. How nice to have some coffee, snacks and sodas waiting for us when a delayed flight made our arrival later than planned, The Poplar unit was immaculate. You really must experience it to believe all the rave reviews -- from the hot tub to the grill to the heated toilet seat to the most comfortable bed w/ speakers this will continue to be the number 1 place for a memorable stay in Asheville.

“The cottage alone might be worth the trip to Asheville.”

I stayed in the Aspen cottage for a week and loved every minute of it. I even skipped some much anticipated morning plans because I was never in a hurry to leave the cottage. I found it luxurious and meticulously clean. While beautifully decorated it was also completely comfortable. I appreciated the various written instructions left for things like the hot tub and remote controls. The kitchen was stocked with frequently needed equipment as well as the complimentary snacks and drinks. I also appreciated not having to carry a key. I cannot recommend this cottages highly enough. I hope to return soon.

“We've stayed in many others but Asheville Cottages are THE BEST!”
Reviewed April 29, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

My husband's job requires a lot of travel. In addition, we've been married 33 years and have done extensive travel in the States, Caribbean, Virgin Islands, and Mexico. We've traveled in a great variety of ways: camping, cruises, resorts, five-star hotels, private rentals, bed and breakfasts...you name it, we've stayed the whole spectrum. (Well, we've never spent the night on a train but we may in the future)!

It is with great delight to say Asheville Cottages was the best accommodation we've ever experienced! Right off we were so welcomed by the style of the cottage. For us, nothing spells "home" like craftsman architecture. Simple yet warm, vintage-like yet modern. The owners have thought of the many ways to make guests comfortable; Sleep Number mattress, soft linens, heated floors & towel warmers, DirecTv channels, snacks on the counter & drinks in the fridge, leather recliner for hubby, electric-start gas fireplace, clear directions on how to use everything, comfortable robes, games, books, ... the list goes on and on. My husband even took a great interest in the reading lamps attached to the headboard of the bed. Not finding a similar style online, he contacted the cottage's owner who promptly sent him a link and information so we can order our own lamps for home! Talk about hospitality!

Nestled in a woodsy setting, the views and privacy of this cottage were greatly appreciated. I spent one morning in one of the rocking chairs on the front porch, reading, sipping coffee and being entertained by the playful squirrels in the yards. Hubby and I spent the cool evenings enjoying the hot tub on the back porch.

Asheville Cottages are surprisingly near town but feel like a world away from the hustle and bustle. It is about a 10-20 minute drive to the downtown area and Biltmore. If we return to Asheville in the future, we will surely stay at this property again. All of our future accommodations, wherever they may be, will always be measured against this sweet cottage. Treat yourself...stay at Asheville Cottages if you can!

“Repeat Visitors Are Still Awed”
Reviewed April 15, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We originally booked Asheville Cottages based on the website’s photos and excellent reviews. To appreciate the full impact, one must see them in person. We remain astounded by the level of detail and care that has gone into making ones’ visit a truly luxurious experience. You are wowed by every aspect of the cottage…the building materials and amenities, a kitchen stocked with any cooking utensil you might need, snacks upon your arrival, luxury bath and bed linens, a distinct feeling of privacy despite the adjoining unit, and an awesome assortment of tourist information. The cottages are close to several forests, artists’ studios and galleries, all your shopping needs (high end, outlet, and grocery), the Biltmore, great restaurants, and more. This has become our “go-to” long weekend vacation destination. It is wonderful and relaxing whether we take in a lot of sites or just a few.

I have a severe allergy to fragrances. Upon notifying Tracie she asked “what detergent should be used to wash the bath and bed linen”. My request for a fragrance–free detergent and fabric softener, was honored and greatly appreciated. Other products with fragrances were also removed. Out of an abundance of caution, I always travel with an air cleaner. I am pleased to report that I never need to turn it on.

We have stayed at the Laurel twice and most recently at the Dogwood. We are already booked for a return visit. This time we will stay at that the Rosewood. There is no doubt in my mind that our stay will be absolutely wonderful!

“Clothing Optional”
Reviewed February 13, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

people found this review helpful

The only reason I titled it as "clothing optional" is that is ALL you need! The owners have taken care of everything else! We stayed in The Laurel for a mini vacation and it was just what we needed. We had our on little private spa like setting with all of the attention to details. The owners are extremely nice! Details: Coffee, Juice, Muffins, CHOCOLATE, bedsheets to die for, gas logs, hot tub (robes), select comfort mattresses, grill, satellite TV, and oh, did I mention CHOCOLATE? The Laurel is not rustic and not high up on a mountain slope so if you are looking for view and a mountain like setting; this isn't it. HOWEVER, if you want quiet, romance and convenience to Downtown Asheville, Biltmore and the Soon To Be Opened Asheville Outlets - this is your place! Thanks, Marshall and Tracie for a wonderful stay!
