The SpaceJust a 5 minute Uber or a 2 mile saunter from Downtown Asheville, our luxurious stone & stucco home on a Private Road with an extra-wide driveway to accommodate up to 10 cars, was totally renovated throughout 2013/14.
Our luxury Airstream sits on a newly constructed deck made entirely of re-purposed century-old hand-laid Reynolds Block Bricks, the production of which spanned from 1889 through 1939, manufactured in a small community nestled in the Upper Cumberland Mountains of East Tennessee: Robbins, Tennessee, by the Southern Clay Mfg. Company. Originally forming the east side of our house as well as the house-deck and a small surrounding wall, we spent a month chipping off the concrete in order to reuse them during reconstruction as you can see at the end of the picture gallery.
Boasting clean, fresh 7.5PH well-water throughout your Airstream Safari, your ultimate luxury will be soaking in the outdoor ozonated mineral spa, overlooking nothing but woods of trees and a mountainous skyline. The spacious shared ozonated hot-tub seats 6 and is open to Cardinals Inn guests throughout the year while his and her bath-robes are provided upon request.
Located on the north-side of the house, exceptional views of local wildlife can be seen through panoramic living-room and bedroom windows, not limited to frequent sightings of bobcats, black bears and cubs.
The comfortable glamping queen size bed with a 3" memory foam also boasts luxurious linens and blankets and a stock of bath-sheets to snuggle in after a dip in the hot-tub or a hot shower.
The kitchen is stocked with pots and pans, plates and cutlery and if there is anything we missed, just ask, I’m sure we have one since Marc is a chef!
There are two monitors with DVD players and there is Wifi, so check out our vast DVD collection and bring your iPad. Sit out in the countryside or jump in the hot-tub (bath-robes upon request) and just ask yourself how could you possibly be only 5 minutes from Downtown Asheville, the Biltmore Estate and Mission Hospital?!
Since we're an Organic Household, we are happy to offer Organic Fair Trade Coffee in the form of a Latte, Espresso, Cappuccino or Americano with optional decaf or tea, organic cream and local organic honey upon request. Complimentary continental breakfast is served DAILY between 8-9am (1st MARCH - 30th NOVEMBER) and WEEKENDS ONLY between 9-10am (1st DECEMBER - 28/29th FEBRUARY) in the house to accommodate any diet.
Even though we are only 2 miles from Pack Square, the heart of Asheville, we are essentially in a rural environment and ask that you are respectful of our wildlife and keep a safe distance in the interest of safety.

We're two Sagittarians - what can i say? We just love people! The NeighborhoodChunns Cove is a world unto itself. We have one neighbor to the north barely visible through huge evergreens, otherwise all you can see is a spectacular view of the valley and mountains. The cove is human-quiet but bird-noisy! We regularly see creatures that you wouldn't expect and could easily mistake this place in summer for a Costa Rican rain-forest! Ingles, our local grocery store, is 2 minutes SW and Walgreens is 5 minutes SE.
Our favorite dinner restaurants are the Admiral in West Asheville and the Bull & Beggar in the River Arts District for which we recommend reservations but you might find a couple of seats around the bar to order a selection of fabulous plates. Lunch time we are partial to Chai Pani's Indian Street Food which i take with no spices and Doc Chey's is ideal on a tight budget but arrive early or be prepared to wait for a seat. Getting AroundThe airport shuttle will bring you to the door, there is a bus-stop into Downtown about half a mile away, where you can rent bicycles or you can walk the 2.2 miles into the heart of Downtown. Every direction has beautiful views!
