Description of the Asheville vacation home rental
Our eco-home is available to you:
We offer our home as a full-house rental or room-by-room for your visit to the lovely mountain town of Asheville, NC. There are four bedrooms that sleep two each, so up to eight people can stay. The house is a 7-minute walk to downtown Asheville.

What makes us eco?
We are an eco-education center with gardens and greenhouse; perennial, edible and medicinal plants; chickens, bees, mushroom production and fish ponds; rainwater and greywater catchment; an outdoor classroom in the connected wooded lot; sustainability trainings with an annual calendar of events -- see linked site for details.

The house:
The house was built in the 20's and has gone under a partial retrofit. The style/feel is a combo of salvaged, funky, natural and simple. It is not fancy, but it is cozy, spacious, comfortable and clean. We have a composting toilet (humanure-style). Some of our walls are finished with natural clay paints. The floors are wooden with a nice, big white carpet in the living room to hang out on, do yoga, etc.

We have free wi-fi; access to a shared washer/dryer in the neighboring house that is part of our property; radiant heat; full kitchen including electric stove, fridge, pots, pans, etc; full shower/bath.

Woodland tent platforms:
We have a tenting area out back in the connected wooded lot, a one minute walk to the house. There is room for three tents, up to six more people. Tenters have full access to the house.

Whole house, up to eight people: $250/night; $1,500/week
Room by the night: $50/one person; $65/two people
Room by the week: $250/one person; $325/two people
Tent platform by the week only: $140/one person; $175/two people
