Priced at $105 a night on Airbnb, this is the lower half of a pleasant cottage off a country lane just minutes from downtown Asheville, North Carolina. You could also stay in the top story, which has an elevated deck with a better view; the owners live in a separate tiny house on the property. But even the first floor is light and bright inside, with wildlife paintings and potted palms giving it a safari-meets-modern-casual vibe.
The layout is also very nice: there’s plenty of space, but none wasted, and the house is dived into two sections by a doorway that separates the bedroom (which also includes a work desk) from the kitchen/living area. Around the corner is a spotlessly clean bathroom with no tub but a spacious grey-tiled shower stall. Behind the house you have access to a half-covered brick patio for outdoor dining and relaxing.
