Description ↑↓

PLEASE NOTE: We do not serve breakfast.

Located in South Asheville just minutes to downtown, and convenient to attractions like Sierra Nevada, Twelve Bones South and Jake Rusher Park. South Asheville is quickly becoming a "must see" destination in its own right, and we are right in the middle of it.

When we first discovered that the historic Blake House was for sale, we thought that living here was just a dream. But our dream has come true and we are excited to be sharing it with guests.

Welcome to the Sycamore Suite, which is located on the downstairs level of the carriage house behind the main house. It is beautiful, sunny, comfy and delightful. We have spent a great deal of time and effort to make it perfect, and we hope you will love it as much as we do.

We are close to the Biltmore House, the Blue Ridge Parkway, the NC Arboretum, Pisgah National Forest and the Folk Art Center. We are convenient to the airport. The nearby towns of Hendersonville and Brevard are both about a 30 minute drive, making them great destinations for a day trip.

Our family lives in the main house, so please be aware that the front porch area is our family space and not accessible to guests. We invite you to enjoy the patio area and to walk around and enjoy the grounds. We hope you enjoy your stay, and we look forward to hosting your visit!

Sincerely,
Brian and Stephanie Marshall

The Sycamore Suite was a great place to stay during our quick weekend to Asheville. The property is very convenient to Biltmore Vilage and downtown. Try the chicken place around the corner - great southern exposure.
Manager Response
We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. Rocky's Hot Chicken Shack is great glad that you discovered it.

Home away from home

By: Trip Date: 2018-06-13
Great. Second time we have booked this location. 3 minutes from my son’s house. Always perfect. This time we had folks upstairs for a couple of days and could hear children running and having fun for a little time but not enough to be annoying. This place will always be our home away from home she visiting Asheville area
Manager Response
We are so glad you came for a second stay and look forward to having you back. Thank you for staying!

Lovely gem

By: Trip Date: 2018-03-25
Lovely, quiet and comfortable apartment with beautiful furnishings south of Asheville but convenient to shops and restaurants. We particularly liked Sierra Nevada's new brewery-restaurant! Easy access to downtown, Blue Ridge Parkway, Biltmore Estate, North Carolina Arboretum. Manager was very responsive and helpful when we couldn't access internet or TV. Small kitchenette a bit lacking in counter space but well-equipped. Huge bedroom and bathroom with very comfortable bed. Would definitely recommend!
Manager Response
We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at the Sycamore Suite and that the location and apartment worked out well for you. We are sorry that the Wifi and TV where giving trouble and where happy to get it working again straight away for you.

Wonderful week!

My husband and I stayed at the Sycamore Suite for a week and could not have been happier or more comfortable! The apartment is larger than it looks in the pictures, the furniture was extremely comfortable and the location perfect! We very highly recommend it!

Three night stay in Asheville

By: Trip Date: 2017-12-07
Rented this place because of the proximity to our grandchildren. It was perfectly clean, comfortable and easy in and out, no issues at all. The property manager & owners were great, we booked the wrong night to check in and they had the room ready for us and changed it no problem. Easy access to the airport and Biltmore also, would definately stay here again.
Manager Response
We are so glad that we could provide a place for you to stay while visiting your grandchildren. We are happy it worked out so well and it was no trouble at all to rearrange the dates. We hope that we can host your stay again.

Great place for a get away!

We rented the suite for the Thanksgiving holiday and could not have been more pleased. The suite was clean, cozy and very comfortable. It is just 15 minutes to downtown Asheville and easy access to other points in the Mountains. We needed a relaxing weekend and we found it!

Great property!

By: Trip Date: 2017-09-25
This property was convenient to everything in Ashville. It was in a lovely wooded setting and very peaceful. The owner was very sweet and had great recommendations. The bedroom was huge with a comfortable bed. We loved the washer and dryer available to us also. Booking and check out could not have been easier.

Delightful!

By: Trip Date: 2017-08-04
Wow! This little charmer was spotless and adorable. I was thrilled when we walked through the door and found everything was exactly like it looked in the photos. There was plenty of room to spread out with a large bedroom and walk in closet and I fell in love with the over-sized bathroom. The property owners were friendly and attentive. Overall this was a great VRBO. We'll definitely visit again.
Manager Response

Carriage House Apartment

By: Trip Date: 2017-07-21
Apartment was very large, including the kitchen/sitting area, bedroom and bathroom. Everything appeared to be newly installed. If traveling to Asheville again I would look up this owner first. Good price for accommodations. Enjoyed stay. Spoke to owner several times when she checked up on us. Very nice. Great experience.
Manager Response
Thank you for staying. We look forward to hosting your stay again in the future.

Wonderful long weekend getaway.

Very adequate

By: Trip Date: 2017-04-06
Clean and convenient.
The bed was a little too firm for us.
Wished there was a little more counter space in the kitchenette.
Manager Response
We strive to provide a clean and comfortable place for our guests to call home. We find that beds are such a personal preference. A bed that is to firm for one guest is just perfect for the next. We are sorry that it was not a comfortable fit for you an appreciate your feed back.

Best of both Worlds

By: Trip Date: 2016-10-28
My boyfriend and I went for a getaway weekend in hopes of tasting some good beers and seeing the beautiful foliage, and we were able to do just that. The Sycamore room was perfect for us. It was an uber ride in to town, but also close to the state/national parks for hiking. The space itself was renovated, spacious and had an extremely comfortable bed. The owners could not have been more accommodating, and were extremely helpful when we had questions on the area. The owners just started renting out the place, so there aren't many reviews yet so don't let that deter you. It almost did for me, and that would have been a big mistake. There is a big back shared patio that we sat outside and had drinks and played cards. There is a fire pit, although we did not use it. We would definitely rent this property again in the future.
Manager Response
We are so happy that you both enjoyed your stay at the Sycamore room. Thank you for renting and we hope that you can come stay again soon.

We had a nice stay in comfortable digs.

By: Trip Date: 2016-10-21
We recently stayed here when visiting the Biltmore Mansion, to which it was quite close. The accommodations were spacious and a full, albeit small kitchen was included (tiny fridge, but functional), but no dishwasher. There was a shared laundry room available, which we didn't need to use. The king sized bed was comfortable and the place was clean. There is a high step down between the bedroom and adjacent bathroom, so beware as you navigate this, especially at night; I'm talking a 6-8 inch elevation difference between the bedroom and the bathroom, so be careful. Everything worked and the owners were welcoming and friendly. We'd come back if visiting the area. It was conveniently situated for the Vanderbilt facilities tours (a real crowded building tour, but worth a look).
Easy walk to the Chicken Shack for a meal, and we hear there are other eating places nearby too. Thanks Marshalls.
Manager Response
We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay in the Sycamore room. We will appreciate your feedback and are working on a solution to make that step down more obvious to guests. Thank you so much for renting. We hope that you can come stay at the Blake House again in the future.
