Cozy, artistic, one-room studio in a rustic setting less than 10 minutes to downtown Asheville. Have breakfast on your own private covered patio. Perfect for hikers, kayakers, outdoor enthusiasts, musicians & artists.

The space

Cozy 235 sf studio attached to our home (but completely separate with a private entrance) with fully operational kitchen, double bed, sofa, table and chairs, bathroom, large covered stone patio & fire pit all built for guests' use only. A friend and I built this house with our own hands implementing a lot of recycled materials from an old barn and an old fallen house. It's a super labor intensive, sustainable work of art that carpenters will appreciate. The house is situated on a fully fenced-in rustic acre. Another fence divides the acre in half so that your dogs don't have to interact with ours if you don't want them to. The kitchen has oven/range, coffee maker, pots & pans, dishes, mini-fridge/freezer, etc; always stocked with organic coffee, tea, cream & sugar for guests. We are located down a bumpy dirt road in a warehouse district near town. Sports cars that are low to the ground are cautioned to drive slowly.

Guest access

Guests are welcome to walk down to the hiking trails/bike paths that start at the bottom of the driveway (next to a rarely-used golf course) and can use the laundry room which is off of the guest's patio.

Interaction with guests

You may or may not see us as we travel quite a bit and stay over on the opposite side of the property. Occasionally friends will come up the drive and you may see them as they pull up, and you may hear us in playing music around our fire pit. And then there are Changuito and Saluda. These are our dogs who might sneak around to your patio to say hello. This may not be the best place for someone who is not a dog lover.

Other things to note

Note that there is no T.V., only wireless internet and only a full size (double) bed. The sofa is too short for someone to sleep on.

House Rules
No smoking
Check in is anytime after 3PM

Well behaved dogs over a year old are allowed with an additional cleaning fee of $20 (pay through pay pall to mizmiriam at gemail before arrival.) Half of the acre is fenced and if you need us to keep the gate closed while you are gone, let us know so we don't leave it open when we come and go. No smoking is allowed in the studio but if you want to smoke on the patio with the studio door closed, that is totally fine. The space is limited to two people overnight but if you want to have friends over to visit that is most welcome.

Such a great, quiet location, yet near all the action. Whether your Asheville trip is focused on town or the surrounds, Miriam's place puts you conveniently close to it all. From her location you can take the back way into town or take the main route via 4-lanes and expressway. You can quickly get to hwys leading in any direction. You have your own parking spot and entrance so you don't feel you are sneaking in. Located at the end of a gravel road, you truly feel you are getting 'away' even though you're just a few minutes from copious entertainment choices. Our trip was focused on mountain biking. We got from Miriam's to Bent Creek in under 30 minutes and to Lake Imaging Rd Parking Area in Dupont in ~ 50mins. We ate most meals outside the home but it was well-provisioned with all-but-microwave to make eating-in easy to do. The coffee provided was a nice and tasty surprise!

Miriam's place is so close to EVERYTHING Asheville, but so secluded too! Best of. It's worlds right here. Already looking forward to coming back.

This home in West Asheville was everything we were looking for. Secluded and quiet, but still central to the city and a quick drive to nearby restaurants/bars/etc. We brought our two dogs along and they loved the house and all the space to run around. Miriam and Jake were kind and hospitable hosts and provided great recommendations. We would most definitely stay here again!

Miriam's place was such a peaceful and relaxing space. We felt pretty secluded but we're just a few minutes from downtown. Would stay here again for a lovely little romantic getaway.

Miriam was a lovely host! Her place was clean and well-equipped upon arrival. We wish we had gotten a chance to meet her more than briefly but were overall pleased with our stay and would love to visit again :)

It's apparent that Miriam + Jake put hard work into this sweet home. It's cozy & original. It's a perfect spot to stay if you're visiting Asheville for the beer or for the mountains (or in our case, both!). The decor reflects fun Asheville & life in a mountain town. There is a large space for your pup to mosey around along with a trail right at the end of the driveway. Tucked away, but still close to town. 10/10 would recommend to any of our friends or family visiting & will absolutely return. Who knows, maybe someday we too will be kind souls of Asheville!
