Landmark, Historic Urban Retreat Apartment-Suite 1 or 2

Please see my website (keyholehouse.DOT.com) & AirBnB Listing. These listings will show pictures for both available apartment-suites: #1 and #2. Dates are negotiable.
Every winter, I open my home to scholar-writers eager for a get-away-writing retreat.

The Keyhole House attracts many scholars throughout the year for the quietude but particularly during the winter. Once (or more) weekly community meal-time gatherings to discuss work is an option and highlight. I, too, work in the winter on my own works in progress.

About Apartment-Suites # 1& 2, per my AirBnB listing. See www.keyholehouse.com to view both apartment listings. The common areas are available for your enjoyment, and if you happen to be a baker, my personal kitchen is also available to you.

Per AirBnB listing: "Bring the past back to life in this recently renovated landmark, historic home. An eco-boutique flare boasts organic amenities, locally roasted coffee, chef-baked gluten-free goods, minimalist interior with vintage charm, original architectural features, wood finishes, stained-glass, an enchanting front porch, and outdoor fire pit. Guests enjoy a fully appointed, private apartment-suite and entrance, environmentally conscious quiet setting, and inviting common spaces inside and out. This home is appealing for travelers and writers eager to unplug, albeit a short walk to the heart of Asheville."

About Me
I am an independent scholar with a part-time academic post in the humanities. And transdisciplinary scholar, I research philosophy of medicine, chronic diseases, and the body as organismic consciousness. In addition, my home is a historic, landmark home within one mile of the heart of Asheville, NC, which I run as an inn/boarding house for writers and sojourners to Asheville. I am exploring the possibility of turning this home into a writer/scholar's retreat and opening up two suites this winter for this promise.
