New modern home with a cottage style exterior set in the woods in the Appalacian Mountains. Clean lines, modern amenities, beautiful art, luxe sheets & towels and a fully equipped kitchen. There are 4 TV's, blue tooth speakers in bathrooms and living room, high quality queen mattress in each bedroom, beautiful bathrooms, two very nice, and well appointed decks. This is a great location for walking to downtown Main Street Hendersonville.

The space

This house is very special as you are in the woods with nature sounds all around you but you can walk down the street, turn onto 4th ave. and walk 1.5 miles to the bustling Main Street of Hendersonville. You enter the house on the main floor which has your kitchen, dining, main living area (first queen sofa bed is here) largest TV for movie viewing, half bathroom, access to a large deck that has relaxing furniture, table and grill for you to use. Go down stairs to the second level that is completely below ground on the back wall, partial on the side walls and fully exposes to nature on the front side. There are two bedrooms with queen beds and each one has a set of 8 feet tall glass french doors that open out onto a deck that runs the full length of the house. You will find chairs to relax in, a chaise lounge and table/chairs for two on this deck. The master bedroom has an on-suite bathroom. At the bottom of the stairs is a playroom (second queen sleeper sofa) with tv, toys, washer and dryer and another full bathroom. This is a green home with an A/C split unit up stairs, geothermal cooling on the lower floor with ceiling fans, and the whole house has radiant floor heat that maintains a constant temperature during cooler weather. At the end of your busy day come home to a modern well equipped home set in the woods and back to nature and relaxation. I find this place to be perfect for finishing a book that I started as it just calls you to relax and slow down!

Guest access

You will have access to the whole house and decks. There is a small driveway that accommodates up to 2 cars. Additional cars will have access to street parking.Bit's and pieces about being in the mountains and my home. The drive way fits 2 cars max. and you drive down parallel to the front door. The grade is a bit steep, (13% going down). This leads to a couple stone steps that lead to a level stone path to the front door. At the front door there are two steps up onto a wood open front door landing. You will find the August Lock key pad to the left of the front door. You punch in your personal code (I will send it to you the day before check in) and then punch the bottom bar with the August icon, wait 15 seconds and the door unlocks. The code is good until your check out time. The door locks automatically 2 minutes after its been open, so you never have to lock it yourself.

Interaction with guests

I will be available to answer your questions, help you with any planning. If I'm out of town, I have a great friend named Kimberly who helps me with my Airbnb listing.

Just got back from my bachelorette this weekend and this house was perfect for it! We had 5 girls and plenty of space. The house was secluded but so close to town, it was great. The layout of the kitchen and living room area was great and made for easy hanging out. We spent lots of time on the porch enjoying the weather! Thanks for an amazing stay! We will definitely be back!

Perfect home base for exploring Hendersonville, Flat Rock, and more. So centrally located that we could easily stop back by the home in between our many activities to change clothes or take a quick break. Home was so open, fun, cozy, stylish, and had things to keep our kids entertained in the mornings. It does not have an outdoor area for kids to play, but the area is rich with outdoor things for kids so it wasn't needed. Our children are 8 and 4 and it was great for us. I was so sad to leave. Outdoor deck was awesome for coffee and peaceful mornings. Can't wait to go back!

Lovely, clean, quirky new home... Easy drive to downtown but on a quiet road with minimal traffic. Very responsive host when we needed her. Beautiful deck surrounded by nature was a bonus.

The house was super cute! Very modern with a fun anthropology feel:-). Melanie had a ton of ideas for kids to do as well. They found leggos, building blocks, card games, and the list goes on! The two decks were absolutely wonderful for early morning coffee, grilling out, or just relaxing. The house felt very private, with trees surrounding the entire lot. You really felt secluded, yet a quick bike ride or car ride to everything you would need (including the cute Main Street of Hendersonville). We had no complaints. Melanie kept in touch and was easy to work with. This was our first experience with Airbnb and we would highly recommend this home to anyone.

Super clean with everything you need to have that comfy feeling of "home," away from home. Loved the sustainable design with open floor plan! The owner left no stone unturned regarding comfort, convenience and consideration for the tenant! We felt welcomed as soon as we walked through the front door! Definitely going back!

Crisp, clean and new! The home was just perfect - open area for main living allowing us to congregate together while not being on top of each other. The kids (3 & 5) thoroughly enjoyed the downstairs play room area that allowed them to be on their own and having fun while the grown ups could have some great conversation upstairs. The impeccably well equipped kitchen was a dream to cook in and had everything needed to complete several meals! Plus, with a nice large dining table we were able to fit all of us (4 adults, 2 toddlers & infant) around one table making it so that we could enjoy being a family. The only caution I would make to the next guests is that the driveway is VERY steep and while we didn't have an issue on a warm Labor Day-weekend...I'm not sure how we would fare during the snowy season. Course, if you're looking for a beautiful home to stay in and just experience the serenity around you - you don't need to worry about the car getting back out again!! OOOhhhh! Most important: Melanie was a phenomenal to work with. Not only did she make sure that her home was MORE than prepared for us, she was also available for quick messages with small (minor) questions. Super helpful about the area and really made our first airbnb experience wonderful!!

I love to travel, experience new cultures, cooking, sharing meals with friends and family. Horses are my favorite animal. I like to be active, especially outdoors. Fall is my favorite season. My favorite country is Italy. James Taylor is my favorite music artist and I've been lucky enough to see him live in concert twice.
