We are a small community of like-minded progressives living in a quiet rural area right outside the city of Asheville. We have a lot of animals (miniature goats, ducks, 2 cats, 1 dog) and while you do not have to interact with them, if you love animals, you will enjoy it here! We enjoy our privacy and quiet and hope for like-minded guests to enjoy it with us! Come for the great hiking, the award winning restaurants and enjoy a little goat therapy too :)

The space
Contemporary studio apartment, suitable for one person or a couple (queen bed) Living Area with smart TV and wireless internet provided, bedroom area with very comfortable queen size bed (all linens provided), fully stocked kitchen large dorm size refrigerator and separate small freezer, bathroom with shower. 7 miles or 10 minutes from downtown Asheville in east Asheville. 5 minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway and awesome hiking spots. We are situated in a 3-home private eco-community in the mountains right outside the city (Asheville). We have small dairy goats, vegetable gardens and live a quiet sustainable country life with Asheville's nightlife, restaurants, theaters, and fantastic hiking only a short 10 minute drive away. Studio apartment is very private with separate parking and private patio overlooking trees, goats pastures, and cow pastures.

We are in the country outside Asheville (but only 7 miles)-- buses don't run out here so it's important to have your own transportation.

Note: If you are an extra large person you probably will not be comfortable here because the shower is quite small.

We don’t have cable TV but have endless entertainment on the smart TV— we have subscriptions for Netflix and Hulu and Amazon Video for both movies and TV shows.

We have a laundry area available for guest use next to the apartment.


IMPORTANT: We have a lovely sweet labrador (Woody), who is very friendly and two cats. Woody loves attention but will ignore you (and never barks at guests!) unless you play with him, then he may become obnoxious wanting your attention. You have been warned! :)
Also, the goat area is fenced in with high voltage electric wire to keep predators out and goats in. Inside the goat pen, feel free to play with the goats! They are very friendly.

I'm a sustainable organic gardener in Asheville NC. I live in a tiny eco-cottage above the studio apartment on one wooded acre. I have a small herd of Nigerian Dwarf dairy goats who provide milk, cheese, love, and lots of fun! My micro-farm keeps me busy and I love sharing this lovely place in the world with people who share the same interests.
