Asheville is a vibrant city located amongst the sloping Blue Ridge Mountains—the arts thrive, the food scene is ever developing and Mother Nature is always ready to stun. While lavish resorts and upscale retreats at the famous Biltmore provide a memorable stay, the Airbnb game is fierce. While many cozy and typical offerings at stellar prices exist, some Airbnbs live up to the hip reputation of one of the most awesome towns in the South East. That being said, these are the coolest Airbnbs in Asheville.

Knitted wood carries through most of the elevated paradise, in the forests of Asheville. While seemingly secluded, the modernized structure actually sets among other houses and is quite close to town, which makes the location ideal. Visitors get the best of both vacation worlds. While the studio apartment is totally private, a family does live on site and will make sure your visit goes smoothly. Being in West Asheville means more tranquility, and there are plenty of restaurants and shops around. Or you could take the short trek to the center of downtown.
This tiny luxury cabin sits hillside within the Town Mountain neighborhood, just two miles from downtown Asheville. While one can feel privately tucked away among the Blue Ridge hills, civilization along with hip eateries, breweries and historic sites aren’t far away. Next door the hosts dwell in the main residence, while the cabin still feels totally lone, and they’ve provided the most luxurious amenities, like heavenly soft linens. Cuddle up on a chilly fall afternoon on the modest deck with over the top views.
Spacious, airy and delightfully modern, this two-bedroom, two-bath bungalow features both the mountain and artsy charm of eccentric Asheville. Designed to focus primarily on the Riceville Valley views, the home is minimalist while featuring an abundance of picture windows so that every room has a fantastic view. A large concrete patio flows from the main living space to the outdoors, and other exciting amenities like double head showers help us understand why Architectural Digest chose to feature this swanky abode.
Cabin meets traditional in The Parkwood Treehouse, and you’ll fall in love with the expansive deck space, complete with a covered hot tub area. From the polished kitchen to the glossy wood floors that flow through the home, there’s an interesting yet familiar vibe, perfect for a getaway in Asheville. Downtown is just a few minutes away, but guests also have the benefit of a peaceful location to rest up before daily adventure.
This cottage features numerous charming aesthetics, from exterior bricked walls, bathroom subway tiling and beamed ceilings. We would have to say it’s partially cabin with some cottage sprinkled in, but then you have that beautifully updated deck with a private hot tub facing outward toward the mountains—wow. Stunning for any special occasion, the home is pure magic. Enjoy the offerings of downtown or hop on the nearby Blue Ridge Parkway for a romantic or scenic drive.
While staying in a church may not be something that would have ever crossed some travelers minds, you can do so in Asheville! Surprisingly being a really neat way to experience 1920s history in North Carolina, the pastoral study has been rustic yet elegantly restored into a lovely suite. Subtle homage to the past is paid with a church pew or old door here and there, but this place fits in well with other lodging options. The outdoor patio features a gorgeous hot tub, and your fridge will be stocked with local craft beer.
The typical cabin experience gets a slight polish in this trendy cabin, which is optimally located for city explorers and nature enthusiasts. All the big Asheville sites such as the Biltmore estate are minutes away, but this cute retreat is close to Asheville’s famed flowing stream of water—the French Broad River (which there’s a chocolate shop named after it, which happens to have the dreamiest truffles). Everything you need to have either a disconnected or exciting city stay is here.
It can’t get more “Asheville” than staying in a cedar tiny home set on the borders of flowering meadows and an organic farm. The city is mere minutes away. The hosts give travelers a peek into the area’s small farm circuit while providing plenty of goodies to sample and cook within your wee but efficient kitchen. This Airbnb is minimalist and sustainable, which is an incredibly refreshing place to recharge.
Overlooking mountain slopes is the slightly Bohemian-esque Serenity Yurt, and the fun round shape flows in a mysterious calming way. Within the permanent tent structure, you have a cozy sleeping space, kitchen with breakfast bar, and welcoming living space with wood stove and even a TV. Don’t fret, there is a full bathroom, while an enormous deck with hot tub wraps around the structure for days of drinking in the surroundings.
Unique for many reasons, this cabin is designed to mimic fire towers within the mountain forests, yet with a bit more luxury tossed in. The two-story masterpiece is rustic and refined while offering multiple nooks and crannies for sleeping and lounging. The views inside and out are spectacular as one might assume, and the space is large enough to comfortably accommodate groups of seven.
