The famous BILTMORE ESTATE is only four minutes away, and Asheville's restaurants, coffee houses, museums, art galleries, and live entertainment are even closer. Shoppers will love the boutiques and the charming, eclectic shops. Many antique stores and warehouses are located less than 10 minutes away - an antique hunter's paradise with bargains galore. A 7-minute walk brings you to the River Arts District with sidewalk cafes and more than 150 artists' studios. The area is also great for sports enthusiasts.

Great biking - level bike paths near the house (including Biltmore Estate bike paths), and hilly terrain in town and on the Blue Ridge Parkway. There is even a skateboard park within walking distance. Green Gables is CLOSE TO EVERYTHING - so take a break from sightseeing or shopping to relax on the huge wrap around porch. Sit in the romantic swing that overlooks the gardens or dine al fresco. The porch is the place to gather on balmy summer evenings to watch the moon rise and to soak up the relaxing, candlelight atmosphere. Other nearby activities include spas, YWCA (10 minute walk), live music & dancing (17 minute walk), several micro breweries within walking distance, bars and restaurants 15 minutes away (walking time,) yoga, farmers markets, and University of North Carolina activities, and much, much more.

About the neighbourhood
Green Gables is centrally located - 4 minutes to Biltmore Village and the Estate, 3 minutes to the center of downtown Asheville, 2 minutes to the River Arts District, and very close to everything else. Walking time to the RAD and the center of downtown (bars, restaurants, shops, grocery markets, etc.) is 10-15 minutes. Information is provided on convenient, inexpensive city-center parking in case you prefer to drive instead of walking downtown.
How to get there
Green Gables is 15 miles from the Asheville Regional Airport – a 20 minute drive. You can take a cab to and from the airport. Technically, you do not need a car because Green Gables is within walking distance to both the heart of downtown Asheville and the River Arts District, and you can walk or take cabs to all of Asheville's famous restaurants, bars, breweries and music venues. A car is a good idea however, because there is so much else to see and do and experience in the mountains. Green Gables is not far from the Biltmore Estate, but you need a vehicle once inside the gates of this magnificent 8,000 acre estate.
