ASHEVILLE. If you covet that shiny silver airstream that passes you on the Interstate, with its rivets, curves, and near die-cut shape that evokes ‘nostalgia,’ then connect with Asheville Glamping. The owners offer vacation rentals with great interior midcentury charm.
Take Silver Bettie, a 1955 Spartan Manor trailer that includes a vintage red fridge, campy (pardon the pun) artifacts, and a comfy bed beneath its curved ceiling. Asheville Glamping can book you a week or weekend there this summer. There’s also a hot tub out back. Sip your morning coffee in a milk glass mug. Enjoy a nap sprawled on an Appalachian patchwork quilt.
But don’t take our word for it, read “The Block Vintage” diary about their summer vacation experience staying with Bettie.
“I have long been obsessed with vintage campers, and finding out that I could actually stay in one was like a dream come true! The inside was decorated from top to bottom in retro decor, and it was so charming and perfect that I had to share the details here!” —The Block Vintage blog
The Block Vintage is an etsy mail-order source for all things vintage, including vintage vacation souvenir Ts. So shop there for a fun addition to your glamping wardrobe.
Asheville Glamping offers several other vacation rentals beyond Silver Bettie, including Rosie the Riveted, Baby Airstream, Little Louie, a mini Yurt next to a goat farm in Appalachia, and The Dome. Each setting is unique and situated among rolling hills, a mile up the road from the French Broad River.
If you are not necessarily a ‘franchise’ enthusiast, but instead a traveler who likes to break up the monotony of the hotel stay, glamping may be for you. Afterall, you don’t go visit Asheville to expect everything to be completely predictable, right?
