About Marshall or Jessica DeWolf

Marshall and I are both semi-retired from careers in the medical profession. We have been married for 47 years! (wow!) and still like being with each other (wow again!). We grew up in Michigan, just outside of Detroit, and because our careers allowed us to, we have lived in Northern California as well as Florida. We love our new home here in Asheville and love hosting people. While the apartment is on the lower level of our home we find it to be private to our guests as well as to us.

Having the 2 acres of land so near the city gives us the opportunity to enjoy city life and convenience as well as to have a private area where we can garden, and work on projects.

Marshall or Jessica DeWolf purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Marshall or Jessica DeWolf chose Asheville

When looking for a new home we had two prerequisites: It must be near to the downtown area and it must have privacy.

Having this 2 acres of land gives us the opportunity to enjoy city life and it's convenience as well as to have that private setting. Yes, we have city sounds but we have nature around us as well. We have mountain views, gorgeous sun rises and sun sets and an abundance of birds and small animals. Families of wild turkeys love to roost in our trees as well as take walks down the street.

What makes this apartment unique

Walk to Beaver Lake and along the way take in the wonderful mountains on all sides. If you don't feel like driving take the bus at the foot of the hill. Walk to nearby restaurants to enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner. The new YMCA is across the street, on Reynolds Mountain if you want to get a good workout! If you love city life, but don't want to be "pinched" between your neighbors our property should work for you!

We loved it!!

We could not have asked for nicer hosts or a better place to stay on our vacation. Jessica and Marshall thought of everything and went out of their way to make us feel at home.

Excellent apartment and great hosts

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent two bedroom to stay in. The flat has a small kitchen with everything you need. The living room and bedrooms were excellent and the beds were very comfortable as well. The location was close to UNC Ashville and downtown Ashville. Jessica was a wonderful host and had good suggestions on local dining. I would stay here again on my next trip to Ashville for sure.

Our home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

The property is warm, inviting, and easily accessible to all attractions in the Asheville area. The house is in a cul-da-sac on a hill surrounded by a slightly wooded area, very peaceful yet close to major attractions and highways. It is the lower level of a house and completely private: 2 bedrooms, bath, kitchen and living room. The hosts made us feel welcome and confident on arrival.

This is our second stay with Jessica, we visited Asheville for the birth of our granddaughter in December 2017. When we decided to visit her at 5 weeks old we knew we wanted to return to this property and we were happy to find it available for our recent stay. We look forward to staying again.

Welcoming owners offer cozy, spacious apartment.

  • 5 of 5

we were visiting in Asheville for the first time, to enjoy the arts scene and see the Biltmore.

This spacious apartment was perfect for our party of three adults . We were able to prepare foods in a clean, well equipped kitchen. The living spaces were very comfortable and well kept.

Great location and perfect setup

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was cute and plenty spacious for a 2 couple stay. We enjoyed the sitting area and also the natural light in the morning during our coffee and breakfast time. Marshall was very accommodating at checkin and when needed during our stay.

We were impressed by the little details like travel size toothpaste and shampoo/soap during our stay.

They even had some coffee beans waiting for us in the cabinet.

If you are looking for a place close to Grove Park Inn, downtown Asheville and Biltmore this is the place.

The cable was intermittent and kept going to no signal. WiFi was the same until another password was given. Super clean!

Owner's Response: So sorry about the cable signal malfunction! It is back up to great working order after a call to ATT.

We are one exit down from UNCA which hosts interesting seminars, has botanical gardens, and beautiful grounds. Biltmore House is 15 minutes down Merrimon (name changes but same road).

In the apartment we keep a listing of our favorite restaurants! Asheville is noted for diversity in lifestyle as well as cuisine. Between the apartment and downtown, on Merrimon Ave you will fine great grocery stores, including Trader Joes, Fresh Market, Whole Foods, Engles, and Harris Teeter.

If you are traveling with children Woodfin Park has a fantastic assortment of colorful outdoor equipment, a picnic area and ample room to run and play. The downtown municipal area has a neat "water spout" park! Tubing down the French Broad is 5 minutes away. A few miles away off I-26 is a nature center, where kids can see and pet farm animals.

The remarks we hear all the time from guests is that we are situated so conveniently to so much!
