This past March we stayed at one of my favorite Airbnbs to date - Asheville Little House - nestled deep in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
I'd been to Asheville one other time this past fall and absolutely fell in love. Especially now that we live near the beach, my heart aches for some mountain time (grass is always greener, eh?) A secluded getaway is just what you need sometimes.
From the moment we stepped foot on the property, we were so blown away by the hospitality. I had booked this trip as a late birthday present for Dyl and we'd been looking forward to it for months at this point. Safe to say, it did not disappoint.
The owners, Heather & Bob, left us care packages in both the kitchen and bedroom, complete with FRESH BAKED blueberry muffins (as you can see in the photo above, I devoured one before I could even get a shot), a carrot cake in the fridge and a note wishing us a warm welcome. Talk about 5 stars. There were also robes laid out for us to make the trek from the private hot tub back up to the house as cozy as possible, and after staying in quite a few treehouses/tiny homes, I have to say the extra amenities are doing it for me. Say what you will about glamping but it's by far the way to go 😍
Now let's talk decor for a second. One of my favorite features of the property was the hanging egg chair. Okay, I'll be honest, it was one of the top 3 reasons I booked the place to begin with (1 being location, 2 being hot tub). Sipping your morning coffee from this spot, taking in the rolling mountain views from the floor to ceiling windows leading out to the balcony, it just doesn't get much better than this.
Speaking of hot tubs, we had ourselves a day enjoying ours. March is truly the perfect time of year to spend in Asheville - warm enough days but brisk nights that make a dip in the hot tub or stargazing by the fire pit super enjoyable. I'd imagine October/ any time in the fall season is pretty incredible here, too,. And, once again, our hosts thought of everything - plastic wine glasses for the hot tub, snacks to munch on by the fire.
After brewery hopping most of our last day, we finished off the night with some s'mores + Better Call Saul out by the fire. Pro tip: make your s'mores using chocolate covered pretzel thins - even my gluten free people can enjoy this one!
For a weekend that was meant to relax and unwind, I can't think of a better place we could have gone. This definitely won't be our last time to Asheville or the little house.
