General overview

Asheville is a lively mountain town, with incredible food, music, art, and some of the best hiking east of the Mississippi. Travel & Leisure named Asheville one of the top 50 places to visit in 2020. It's #3 on this list: https://www.travelandleisure.com/trip-ideas/best-places-to-travel-in-2020 There are dozens of waterfalls nearby, more craft breweries per capita than anywhere in the country, and Yelp named Asheville the "Best Food City in America." We have a beautiful and spacious home with 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, an extra full kitchen on the lower level (along with a bedroom and bath that we're happy to use for hospitality exchanges), a music room with a baby grand piano and guitars, and a large outdoor balcony surrounded by the beautiful trees of western North Carolina. Please note - the current photos of our home do not include our furnishings. We are completing our decorating after our recent move and will update the photos asap.

The space

- The main level includes the recently renovated and spacious kitchen, family room with gas fireplace, dining room, music room with baby grand piano and guitar, one half bath, and a large mud room with washer and dryer. - The upstairs includes 3 bedrooms, all with queen sized beds.

There are two full bathrooms upstairs as well. - The lower level has a full kitchen, bedroom with a queen bed, bathroom, and living area with a full size sofa pull out.

Neighbourhood

We are located 3 miles north of downtown Asheville tucked into a beautiful neighborhood on a dead end street surrounded by beautiful trees that create a haven of privacy. We are a short distance to the Historic Grove Park Inn, Beaver Lake, UNC Asheville (also home to the weekly farmers' market), the Botanical Gardens, and to several area restaurants. Our home is less than 10 minutes to the Blue Ridge Parkway, and 15 minutes to the gates of the Biltmore Estate. We are 1 hr and 15 mins away from the entrance to Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Outdoor activities for the area include hiking, biking, rock climbing, white-water rafting, tubing, and geocaching. We highly recommend the website: romanticasheville.com for information on festivals/events, restaurants, and outdoor activities.

Getting around

It would be best to have a car. Public transit is not the best here in Asheville. *We are open to, and have done many car exchanges in the past.

Member description
We are an active family of four always looking forward to the next home swap. We love to explore new places and cultures, music, national parks, and especially the outdoors (hiking, biking, camping). We also love good food and appreciate getting recommendations from our exchange partners wherever we go. Brian is a music professor at UNC Asheville, a jazz pianist, and enjoys playing tennis. Bridget is a flight attendant, and loves yoga and rock climbing. Our boys, Sean (age 10), and Gavin (age 8), like to rock climb, play baseball, and have really gotten into the card game Magic The Gathering. They're also huge NY Yankees fans. Home Exchange has become a lifestyle for us. We've made incredible friendships along the way, and there's truly no other way we'd rather explore the world than through sharing/swapping our home with other home-exchangers. We will treat your home and belongings with the utmost respect. We're open to traveling just about anywhere, so drop us a line and we'll see if we can make a swap! So far our exchanges have taken us to: Amelia Island, FL Brooklyn, NY Chicago, IL Oak Park, IL Oakland, CA Polignac, France Roskilde, Denmark Amsterdam, Netherlands Boca Raton, FL Robbinsville, NC Prospect, ME Dublin, Ireland We look forward to many more!
