Guestbook comments from the owner
I would like to take the time to thank you guys for making our first annual ski trip a success. Thank you Jamison, Mary, Jim, and whoever else I might forget. The Avondale was exactly as you promised and described. My favorite part was the view from the decks and having plenty of firewood accessible. They were both big hits with our team. Let’s not forget about the great “check in”. Having the key in the lock box is a great idea. The sauna, steam shower, jetted tub, and sunroom were definite pluses. Whenever we come to the Asheville area, and need lodging, you can count on us give you guys a call. Thank you

We live and work at Oakland Cottage Bed and Breakfast in Asheville, just one mile from the Biltmore Estate and about 7 miles from Avondale Ridge. We are natives of NC and have worked and lived in the Asheville area since the late 1980s. In our 'pre-parent' years we were climbing guides and river guides for local companies in western NC (North Carolina Outward Bound School, Eagle's Nest Camp, Nantahala Outdoor Center, Appalachian Mountain Guides,...), so we know a lot about what to do and where to go in the out of doors in the area. We started a family in 1999 with the adoption of John Andrei (from Russia), and have enjoyed staying at home a bit more as we raise our family. We all bike fairly extensively in the area as a form of recreation and have bicycled the Blue Ridge Parkway, end to end (400 plus miles) in part and in whole on many occassions. We love this area and hope we can help you enjoy it too!

Avondale Ridge borders the Blue Ridge Parkway and has lovely westerly views, yet is pretty close to it all. Just 1.5 miles to the confluence of I-40 and I-240, getting into downtown Asheville is quick and easy, yet access to the Parkway and the out of doors is also quick and easy - the best of both worlds. We love the log cabin feel, spaciousness, views and proximity to it all!

Views off the decks are lovely, especially from the top floor. There are two family rooms, which makes Avondale a great place for family reunions and other gatherings.

"FAMILY ROOM" AS BEDROOM

"Family Room" as bedroom
  • 1 out of 5
Don't be the one stuck on the old fold out sofa bed in the upstairs "family room". This is an uncomfortable bed in a room with only three walls, no privacy and no access to a bathroom. This space is suitable only for sleep optional/privacy optional events. The home sleeps 14 people at best. Would not recommend, would not return.

COMFORTABLE VISIT

  • 4 out of 5
We were a big group with small children, young dogs, teen ages and the elderly. The house suited us all very well. The location is great because you can be in town to eat or shop and back quickly but when you are there you feel like you are in the woods in the mountains. I felt very save for my 3 and 6 old to be playing in yard and the upstairs sitting room let us spit into the group wanting TV or the group talking down stairs. Even in the horrid heat, the house was comfortable and the porch enjoyable to sit on. Remember you are in the wood there is wildlife. I would say it is a steep drive in a good powerful car helps.

GREAT, CONVIENT, ASHEVILLE ACCOMADATIONS

  • 5 out of 5
My daughter was married in asheville and we housed the whole family for 4 nights. There was plenty of room for all 16 of us. It is very convient to Asheville. Excellent views and wonderful family areas. Could use a few more comfortable chairs in family room. I would definitely recommend this property.

HAD A GREAT TIME!

  • 5 out of 5
My extended family stayed here to celebrate my parents' 50th wedding anniversary. There were 13 of us, ranging in age from 2 to 77, and we all had a wonderful time. There was plenty of room for all of us, including a well-stocked playroom for the kids. The house was charming and comfortable, the views were beautiful, and Asheville was lots of fun. We were only there for a long weekend, which is too bad, because I think we all would have enjoyed a longer stay. There is so much to do in and around Asheville that we feel like we barely scratched the surface.

GREAT REUNION SPOT

  • 5 out of 5
Our group of 11 interpid hikers from all over the country had a reunion here. The house was spacious, comfortable and had great common spaces to hang out in while having enough bedrooms to allow everyone privacy. We loved the convenience and quick drive to downtown, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Biltmore, etc. Yet when you were in the house you felt isolated.
Our only complaint was the drip coffee maker which did not work well and needs replacing.Other than that, all our creature comforts were met. The views from the 3 levels of deck were spectacular.
Everyone in our group approved of the choice and felt it helped to make our reunion the success that it was.

Location

Car: necessary

Location, location! All with privacy, lovely views & convenience. Avondale Ridge borders the Blue Ridge Parkway (BRP) National Park and is conveniently accessed - just a mile off NC Hwy 74 - at the confluence of I-40, I-240 and ramp access to the BRP - extremely convenient to downtown Asheville (just outside the city limits & about 5 miles to downtown - views of the south side of city from the decks), the Biltmore Estate (next exit west off I-40 - maybe 10 minutes away), & Chimney Rock Park (Chimney Rock Park is about 23 miles south on Hwy 74). Downtown has wonderful, eclectic, local dining & shopping. What a great town to walk & explore. Grocery shopping is located within five minutes of the house on Hwy 74 along with additional shopping & dining. Asheville is great for Antiquing, Arts & Craft shopping, dining, hiking, biking, golfing, and all the Southern Appalachian & Western NC Mountains have to offer. Call for suggestion about what to do

Other Activities: Biltmore Estate, Blue Ridge Parkway, Chimney Rock Park, Appalachian & Great Smokey Mtns.
