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 Area

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!

A delightful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a nicer place to stay while we were visiting family in Asheville. The apartment was super clean. The hosts had thought of so many things to make our stay more comfortable - from cake and croissants in the freezer to bottled water, butter, jam and creamer in the refrigerator! The kitchen was well stock. The bed was extremely comfortable and the bathroom was supplied with almost anything you might need. We would most certainly return should we be in Asheville again!

First impression, photos don't translate well, larger in person. Previous reviews were useful and true. Three of us were very comfortable. Owners easy to work with, friendly. First time to area, great location!

Wonderful apartment with comfy beds!

  • 5 of 5

Jessica and Marshall are very easy to work with. The apartment was even better than we anticipated...comfy beds, very clean, and excellent extras such as pastries and filtered water awaiting us upon arrival. The apartment is located close to town yet in a beautiful, quiet wooded area. The water pressure in the shower was very good and the kitchen was well stocked and had everything we needed. Ceiling fans were a nice touch but we didn't need therm due to mild temps during our visit. The A/C, controlled by the hosts, was just right. You'll love this peaceful get-away!

Lovely apartment close to downtown Asheveille

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay Jessica was polite, helpful and there when we needed her. She was not intrusive in any way. The apartment had lots of little extras shampoos, tea, coffee, jam, a wonderful kitchen stacked with pots and pans. The artwork was beautiful, as was the whole apartment and the outdoor sitting area. We felt safe leaving out teenage daughter in the apartment alone. The only negative I can think of was we did not get to meet Juno the dog.

We would go back to this apartment in a heartbeat.

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!
