In mid June our family rented the entire house "a la carte" for our family reunion and we could not have been more pleased. There were 11 of us in 4 different family units and each family had their own private suite and plenty of room.
The location of the house is perfect in regards to the interstate, down town and the Biltmore area. We were just minutes from all three. There was plenty of parking and it was laid out so that we were all able to park without blocking some one else in.
The deck on the back and the front porch were both awesome. The deck was great for outdoor cooking as it was just outside the kitchen door and the front porch was perfect for just sitting around during the evenings.
The rooms were tastefully decorated and each one was unique. Each (suite) had its own bathroom and window air conditioner.
The common areas provided a great place for us to just sit and catch up on old times. All the furniture was nice and comfortable. The kitchen was charming and was about like you would expect to find in a 100 year old farmhouse. It was well stocked with dishes and cookware and all the appliances worked fine. The house had a washer and dryer for our use.
We rented the entire house for just over $500 per night. That sounds high but considering that 11 of us stayed there (and we had a couple of beds we did not use) it was well worth the money.
I am not big on staying at a bed and breakfast and don't think that I would like it but as we had the whole house it was different. If we go back to Asheville again and have a need for an entire house, we would certainly try to book this place.
