About Stephen Lutz

Stephen & Beth have lived in Asheville since 1982 so we know the area well. We have four grown children, love to travel, but also love to keep exploring our home town. We enjoy meeting new people and our guests.

Stephen Lutz purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Stephen Lutz chose Asheville

If you want to be close to downtown and the Biltmore Estate but don't want the hassle of a parking deck, our location is about as good as it gets.

What makes this apartment unique

A lot of love went into the building of Craftsman Cottage, from the beautiful custom woodwork to the deck overlooking the garden. We love it when guests take time to explore the grounds of our 1914 era Craftsman home.

Beautiful Place to Stay--Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place to stay for our trip to Asheville. We love Craftsman architecture, and were delighted at the great attention to craftsman detail and design. Really nice.

The location was perfect too. Kenilworth is a beautiful, quiet neighborhood full of gorgeous old craftsman homes/mansions, but it is just down the hill to the Biltmore Estate and downtown Asheville, where most of our weekend was spent.

The owners, who live next door, are fun people with great ideas for restaurants and things to do. Tupelo Honey is a great place to eat that they told us about. They had a complimentary bottle of wine waiting on us when we arrived, which we enjoyed on the deck of the cottage, which is particularly lovely. It has vines with blooming roses growing along the rail of the deck with little lights interspersed, which makes it look and smell wonderful at night. This was a great place to stay, and we can’t wait to go back!

Great little place

  • 5 of 5

This place was so adorable!! Close to both the Biltmore and downtown AND allowed my doggie. Can't beat that. The grounds were picturesque and the space was very comfortable. Bottle if complimentary wine was definitely a bonus. Check in/out was a breeze. I'm already looking at the calendar to see when we might be able to visit again.

The Craftsman Cottage is delightfully unique and VERY comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We (two of us and our small dog) thoroughly enjoyed the Craftsman Cottage. Very private location with marvelous style and very homey feel. The private deck off the back was a real bonus. All amenities were ready for us when we arrived - much appreciated. Very convenient to all of Asheville and in a very nice neighborhood with very interesting homes, and LOTS of places to walk the dog. The books and games provided a nice complement to the TVs and WiFi. The owner and family couldn't have been nicer. Highly recommended!

Very nice, clean and quiet

The stay was excellent, and it in a great location. You're never more than a few minutes from anywhere you would want to go in Asheville.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay !! - made to feel very warm and welcome - the unit feels like a home away from home - the owners have thought of every detail - an extensive library and well stocked movie collection to wind down with in the evening. Access to the Biltmore entrance in 5 minutes - downtown in about 7 minutes - great restaurants in Asheville and the owner has provided a book with much detail about the area and much available literature to help guide and plan your stay. We will definitely return to this home in the future!!
