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.
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.
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.
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.
