Asheville is such a cool place to be.... The art. The people. The food. Grove Park Sunsets. New Morning Gallery. Biltmore Village. West Coast Atmosphere.... I love it! And now, I've discovered this "country manor" minutes from town. If this property is available, better book it immediately!!! You can even buy organic and pick up a bottle of wine at a huge discount at Hopey and Company on your drive in.... My Sister and I loved the Owner Milan and all of the special things she does for her guests. And yes, she bakes cookies fresh from the oven for you!!! The best part.... our accommodations were far superior to any of the other places we've stayed before!!! Including Grove Park Fitzgerald Suites, Various Lofts Downtown, and Historic B&Bs.... The perfect setting for a sound good night's sleep, you wake up refreshed and energized for the day!!!! Internet service excellent too.... Love this place!!!!
Our four days at the beautifully appointed apartment were truly delightful. The bed and linens were the ultimate in comfort making starting our days a bit of a challenge! Our hosts were there to meet us upon our arrival, showing us around the various amenities of the kitchen and the apartment as a whole.
We found that patience was a necessity when waiting for the hot water and the bathroom lighting over the mirror could be improved, BUT the overall experience was a 5 star plus plus!!
We look forward to our next visit and stay with John and Milan!
This apartment was perfect for us, more room than we needed. I had plenty of room to do yoga one morning without disturbing my husband. The full kitchen was great, we were able to make breakfast each morning and reheat leftovers from the night before for lunch. We found the apartment clean, quiet and adequately stocked in the kitchen and bathroom. The king bed was comfortable, we had plenty of closet space. The location is a short drive to both the Biltmore and downtown Asheville. Saturday morning we took a short drive on the Blueridge Pkwy to do some hiking, back for lunch, then down to Asheville for the afternoon. We hope we can come back next year, John and Milan were excellent hosts, very charming!
My husband and I spent 2 wonderful nights at this apartment, and have to say it lived up to its description "Luxurious Mountain Guest Suite" in every way. It is quite a large space with vaulted ceilings, situated over the garage of a fashionable home in a small upscale gated community a few minutes' drive from Downtown Asheville. Awaking to the birds chirping in the trees of the beautifully landscaped grounds give a feeling of privacy and peacefulness, while still being only a mile or so away from shops and amenities. The apartment is furnished in a winning mix of modern and antique styles; many pieces give the impression of being custom-made for the space. The kitchen is a cook's dream if that is your passion; the four-poster bed is as comfortable as it is handsome, and there are several seating areas to relax and enjoy down-time from visiting nearby Biltmore Estate, galleries and shops. Milan and John are the perfect hosts, helpful and respectful. We look forward to returning soon.
My wife and I just got back from an awesome, relaxing weekend at Milan and John's beautiful room above their detached garage. The place was very well appointed, clean and the seeing was so peaceful in the mountains of south Asheville. Milan greeted us warmly when we showed up and even baked us cookies. Obviously not necessary but just an example of their great hospitality. They were both warm and friendly and easy to talk to. The bed is awesome and so comfortable. Thank you guys for a wonderful weekend! This was one of our favorite getaways of our nearly 10 year marriage!
The accommodations are opulent, surrounding you with a rich and luxurious environment. The place exudes romance and is perfect for an intimate getaway. The fireplace at the foot of the gorgeously carved four posted bed added to the romantic ambience. The art work within the apartment added interest and we enjoyed exploring its history.
The apartment is well appointed with everything you need for a delightful stay. It had extras that you would not expect in an ordinary rental.
The owners were exceptional hosts welcoming us with a plate of fresh baked cookies. We were in Asheville meeting with our architect designing our retirement home. The hosts were kind enough to provide us with suggestions based upon their expertise in home design and building.
If you want to pamper yourself with exquisite surroundings rather than being in an ordinary hotel room in Asheville, this is the place to stay!
