From the moment we were created by James upon arrival to the time we left there was not one thing more to wish for during our stay with James & Susan. James carried my bags to our room. We stayed in the cottage house, wow..very private with all the amenities that you could ask for. The tub was great mostly after a long day of hiking. It was a deep jacuzzi with excellent water pressure and plenty of hot water. Nice bath robes, Make-up remover to bath salts were available in our room. The house is very convenient to down town. You could walk but after a long day of hiking and a full dinner we opted to drive. There are also plenty cabs available to and from town as well. James was always around to answer questions....we were in Asheville to hike and eat he knew much about both. Every night at 5:30 there were hors d' oeuvres and wine set out. The spread of food was so nice i had to take pictures and the wine served was from the Biltmore Estate and was very good. Susan is a wonderful cook, breakfasts were spot on...tasty every morning. There is always sodas, water and coffee available all day. Cookies every afternoon and nightly homemade baked goods were left in our room each evening. The house is well maintained and clean. I was not ready to leave after 3 nights, i will look forward to my return visit in the fall.
