Clean, nicely furnished and pleasant. Our hosts stocked the refrigerator with eggs, juice, water and muffins. The kitchen was stocked with everything needed to cook our own groceries. The view was excellent (we turned out the lights and enjoyed looking at Asheville at night), but I guess during the summer leaves might interfere just a bit. Bathroom was nice, with a large shower. Only issue we had, and it's a "small" one, was that we wish that the bed had been king-sized. Given the size of the bedroom, I doubt that's possible. I would definitely recommend this to a friend. Definitely not for people with mobility issues, since an outdoor staircase is required to access the house.
