Please read the listing details. Paul's Room-- and our house!-- is convenient to the highway exit & nearby Asheville area or Black Mountain/Montreat. It's an easy walk or VERY quick drive to groceries, dining, gas, drug stores / necessities. You’ll love our garden, the proximity to Warren Wilson College (Swannanoa Chamber Music Festival, Swannanoa Gathering, Old Farmer's Ball, MFA Residencies) and the venue White Horse Black Mountain. Our place is good for solo adventurers and cozy couples.

El alojamiento

Our house, the Chrysalis Cottage, has only 3 rooms, a great room in the front, our master in the back, and the smaller Paul's Room. The pictures depict the space accurately, but not necessarily its usage. This is a real homestay and we come and go. We study. We work. We do projects indoors and out. We neglect sorting through the mail. We are sometimes inefficient about putting away things we've used. We do consistently make space for others and keep chaos down to a dull roar. Belba lives everywhere in the house. Nothing makes her happier than having someone to hiss at, and she will pretend she wants affection from you. (Don't book if you are highly allergic, though.)

Servicios y zonas comunes

Please look at listing photos: enter over the deck and through the screen porch. You get to use our great room and Paul's room, plus a screened in porch, a back deck, and our gardens. Paul's Room is clean, simple, and comfortable in the sleeping-in-the-spare room way. Brother/in-law Paul has stayed here as long as 3 months comfortably. You have a chifforobe with room for hanging clothes on 2 sides, plus 3 drawers, and a center pull-down organizer space. There is a ceiling fan and 2 generous windows with screens, but we DO NOT have air conditioning, although this is generally unnecessary in the mountains. There is a ceiling light and there are 2 smaller lamps for better ambiance. The room also contains items too handy or too difficult to part with, but these are organized and do not impede traffic or use of the room. The bathroom is just outside your bedroom door. It is used by us and our visitors as a powder room. The tub/shower is all yours as are the towels. You have a small coffee maker in your room. You may also use the microwave in the kitchen. We prefer to avoid more elaborate kitchen use, but an accommodate you if you have a need. We can and will make room in the fridge, an outdoor fridge, or in a pinch, a cooler. We can arrange laundry use for a modest fee if you are here for a week or more.

Atención a los huéspedes

Our schedules and our own outings away from home vary. You may run into us a lot or very little. If we are home when you are here, we will be happy to offer you what guidance or direction we can to make your stay more comfortable or to help you orient to the area. We advise that if you are planning to see that largest house in the US, you should purchase your tickets at least a week in advance to get a better price, but either way plan on spending more than you thought you would. We've lived here 20 years and still don't know everything, but would be happy to advise you of some places to go and things to see. If you'd prefer less interaction, we will not be offended.

Otros aspectos destacables

We have too darn many vehicles, but there is no problem with you bringing another. If at any time you will have more than one, though, please alert us so we can arrange accordingly or guide you to the best arrangement. We do not have a rooster, but a neighbor does. When it crows at terrible times and places, we thank it for a new generations of pullets. We live pretty much equidistant between our one fire station and the other. When they go storming by in whichever direction, we wish well to whomever they are off to help and thank our lucky stars that this time it is not us.

Staying in Paul's room was great. Chrysse was very welcoming! The house was easy to find and convenient to the Asheville area. The futon was comfortable and the room was spacious.

I enjoyed my stay at Chrysse and Mark’s House. They described it well - And though you are staying in someone’s house it is still pretty private.

11/10. The most quintessential Asheville home and couple! Top 5 favorites: 1. Spacious and rustic outdoor shower, complete with leaves sticking to your feet. Not sure how clean you will actually get, but the lack of light pollution in the area makes for a wonderful cleanse under the stars. 2. Convenient napping futon in the garden for all hours of the night. If you get stuck, don't panic; just go the middle of the bed and roll off to once side under the tarp. 3. Pee Wee Herman collectible doll in the living room adds a touch of nostalgia. We saw the man about the horse, and he had a lot to say. Great words of wisdom. 4. Charming boat for sale at an undisclosed priced in the neighbor's front yard may be your new favorite souvenir. 5. Outstanding collection of bird leaves in Paul's Room. All sorts of colors and sources and placements. Stunning and sustainable art.

Respuesta de Chrysse:
Aww...you should have asked for flippie-floppies and/or a foot-bath tutorial! And a futon-tarp-becomes-graceful canopy tutorial! Bird leaves? If you mean the many and sundry poufs for poofs, they can be YOURS. IF the Price Is Right! You two were/had too much fun!

Loved staying at Chrysse's place. The room was clean and she was an extremely welcoming guest. She even made us some homemade pie! Would definetly recommend her place to anyone looking to stay around the Asheville area.

A timely hot shower upon arrival; a quick breakfast to fuel my day's adventures; Chrysse made my first home BnB stay comfortable and pleasant.

Boring middle aged healthcare professional. Hiking gardening volunteering hobbies...blah blah blah. Starting artsy-crafty projects that should have been underway months ago.... My ambitions focus on travel more than achievements and things. Too many destinations too little PTO. When we travel, we look for a place to sleep and perform ablutions, and it needn't be plush and posh. Camping, backpacking, and hostels have been our style.
