Rooster Ridge is the perfect home away from home vacation escape!
The front porch boasts 4 cozy rocking chairs, but there is room for at least 4 more, it’s that large and spacious. The living room hosts a gas fireplace that we used constantly, not so much for the heat, but for the ambiance. We had originally desired a rental with a log fireplace, but no, the gas fireplace provides the warmth and glow of logs but when you want to leave, it is a simple turn of the knob to shut it off!
The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, coffee mugs, dishes, glassware, a Magic Bullet, cooking utensils, plastic ware for storing leftovers, and more. Before stopping at Ingles or Wal-Mart on the way up to the cabin, take the extra few minutes and see what is already stocked for you. Not only was there the basic salt, pepper, oil, cooking spray, there were spices, sauces, coffee, creamer, butter and MORE! The Master bedroom is spacious and has a desk complete with desktop computer and Internet access; the master bath is a great size and fully stocked. The back porch has a perfect hot tub and a BBQ grill. Many hours were spent in the hot tub, especially the two nights we had a light rain………….amazing stars, 50 degree temps, a hot tub, perfect! The guest bedroom is a great size as well, no skimping on bedroom size in this cabin! One of the best perks of the cabin was the washer and dryer; no having to over pack and spend more for extra luggage, we were able to do a load while kicking back at the cabin mid week, then washed everything the night before we departed…….…arriving home with clean laundry made the return trip not too bad!
It’s abt 20 minutes to the Asheville Airport, 25 to the Biltmore Village, 15 to Lake Lure, 10 to Chimney Rock. Don’t miss Historic Downtown Hendersonville (Main Street). It is full of life, restaurant, shops, and a Never Blue (a martini bar with outside seating). It hosts a local playhouse; we saw The Marvelous Wonderettes! The Cypress Cellar is a great restaurant but don’t miss the Japanese restaurant, the Bakery, or any of the other wonderful restaurants along Main Street. The last Sock Hop of the season was great; can’t wait to return and dance in the street again.
We booked our return visit while we were at the Asheville Airport awaiting our departure flight home. Once my co-workers saw my YouTube video of RR they booked their own RR vacation! RR and Hendersonville was totally EPIC! 5 weeks 1 day until we return!
