Vacation Rentals in Asheville

Stay in a Rental Home in Central Asheville

If you need to be close to Asheville's galleries, markets, craft ale breweries, and entertainment venues, there's no shortage of accommodation options in the city itself. Visitors can stay in modern furnished apartments with spacious living areas, security, and all of the bedrooms you could need. And there are town houses as well, including homes close to attractions like the Biltmore Estate.

Find A Vacation Rental in the Nearby Countryside

The other option is to check out Asheville's out of town accommodation. For example, you could find a cabin near the arboretum, or venture further into the Great Smoky Mountains. But there are suburbs and villages like Bent Lake or Enka too. Wherever you look, most of the time you'll find homes with numerous bedrooms, barbecues, huge yards, and space to park as many vehicles as your party needs.

Holiday in Asheville, NC


One of the Most Vibrant Small Cities in the USA

Asheville, North Carolina is a magical place. Famous for its bohemian arts scene and relaxed vibe, it's a lively college town with all sorts of cultural events and attractions. But it's also a superb destination for nature and recreation fans, being so close to the stunning Great Smoky Mountains.

Urban Culture on Nature's Doorstep

This proximity to the wilderness is what makes Asheville such an incredible place to visit. You'll find the city in western North Carolina, not far from Knoxville and Charlotte, but it seems a world away from both places. It's not huge, with around 90,000 inhabitants, but it has a remarkable amount going on.

The Best Way to Reach Asheville

TThe city is on I-40, while I-81 passes very close by. Asheville Regional Airport is served by airlines like Delta and American Airlines, while Amtrak stops at Raleigh and Charlotte, both of which are a manageable drive or bus journey away.

Activities in Asheville

A Fantastic Destination for Culture Fans

If one word sums Asheville up, it's “creativity.” The city is a hive of artistic activity, with theaters and music venues, craft markets, dance studios, and galleries on every corner.

A Fine Destination for Nature Lovers

The Asheville area has some gems for nature fans, such as the beautiful arboretum or the grounds of the Biltmore Estate. More importantly, the city is a convenient jumping off point to explore the Great Smoky Mountains.

Great Fun for History Enthusiasts

History is everywhere in Asheville, which was founded way back in 1794. Anyone with a passion for the past will adore highlights like the magnificent Biltmore Estate, and the homes of writers Thomas Wolfe and Carl Sandburg.

Along with being an artistic hub, Asheville also has the nickname “Beer City USA” thanks to its huge range of craft breweries and bars.

Top 5 Things to Do in Asheville

1. Tour the Biltmore Estate

With 250 rooms and 8,000 acres of gardens, the Biltmore Estate is one of America's most luxurious and beautiful manor houses. Don't miss the on-site winery and the quaint attractions of Antler Hill Village.

2. Drive the Blue Ridge Parkway

Few places beat Asheville for mountain driving. The Great Smokies are right next door, but the Blue Ridge Parkway is arguably the most scenic route of all, and it flows for hundreds of miles northeast from Asheville.

3. North Carolina Arboretum

If you want to enjoy some hiking but aren't equipped to explore the mountains, the NC Arboretum is a spectacular alternative. This 434 acre park to the south of Asheville showcases local tree species and flowers, and is a gorgeous place to be.

4. Take a Zipline Canopy Tour

Adventure tours like Navitat are based in central Asheville, and offer a unique way to experience the nearby forests – via ziplines suspended high above the floor. It's a great mix of sheer excitement and scenic beauty.

5. Visit the Asheville Museum of Art

Located in Pack Place in Downtown Asheville, the Museum of Art hosts a dazzling collection of 20th century American masterpieces, with more than 3,500 pieces in total.

Useful Information

Be There in Summer for a Packed Cultural Schedule

Summer is definitely the hub of the Asheville calendar, and events take place pretty much every week from June's Beer City Festival through to September's Mountain Heritage Day. However, there are some amazing fall events as well, such as the LEAF music festival, so don't assume that the city shuts down as the temperature drops.

Think About Renting a Car During Your Stay

If you don't intend to drive to Asheville, renting a vehicle is a good idea. That way, you can make the most of the scenic parkways, and you can choose properties located further away from Downtown. It's also an excellent cycling city, thanks to its environmentalist community, so that's something else to consider.
