'What to do & where to eat' information provided ..........

Dare I say, the information I provide may surpass most vacation rentals in how much, how diverse, and how specific. I have taken great strides in providing you with 'what to do' with attraction brochures and information I've gathered on my own. It spans the gammmet from nearby ice cream stands [get some ice cream on your way back from downtown at the oldest ice cream shop in Asheville!], directions of prominent downtown and area restaurants (with food descriptions) as well as local and area attractions brochures. I can also tell you about our new stable for boarding your horse and beautiful mountain trail ride! One never knows what someone else visiting may be interested in doing. So when you stay at Newfound Cottage you won't be asking 'what is there to do?'. And it's always best coming from a local!

Closing Comment:

It's not too good to be true, we really are on a 136 acre privately owned mountainside farm among a forest of trees and wilderness! Residing on 10 private acres, within the 136 acre farm is the cottage and my home, 1/2 mile up the mountain from the main road [NO ONE CAN SEE THE PROPERTY FROM THE MAIN ROAD], with 2 of those acres between the cottage and my private residence. If you need anything, I'm here to help. Pictures cannot convey how in reality this cottage lives or feels. The hot tub, on-site hiking, beauty of the mountain wilderness, covered front deck, convenient home-like extras, plus loads of incredibly interesting wilderness property to explore ... this place just can't be beat! There are a lot of wonderful places to have a vacation rental, but Newfound Cottage is situated to be called 'among the best'. To experience nature in the quiet and calm of a mountainside setting is a luxury some never get to experience. I've been told I could charge more for such a place simply because of the peace 'n quiet, beauty, so much privately owned property, along with my efforts extended into the decor and provisions, but the rates charged reflect the 1400 sq. ft. size of the cottage, while still offering 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, hot tub, Wifi and hiking! You won't be disappointed with Newfound Cottage. Yes, this is the 'cottage in the mountains' you've been looking for!

About Tammy

My husband and I have been married since 1990 and have had rentals since 1993. We're big DIYers. I am an artist by nature so interior decorating comes natural to me. My husband has artistic skills and abilities too but prefers building things. We built our cottage ourselves over a 3 yr. period with our own time and money. Vacation rentals suit me for being able to earn income from home while keeping myself available for my elementary school-age son, having time for family as well as be able to clean and maintain my vacation rentals to my high standards.

Tammy purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Tammy chose Leicester

The community of Newfound in Leicester is a farming community. Since we loved the area enough to build our dream home here, we knew our guests would appreciate a home-away-from-home in a true country setting. Perfect location being 5.7 miles from the interstate, but only 20 minutes from downtown and only 25 minutes to the Biltmore Estate. That's a whole lot less driving than most commuting to work!

What makes this cottage unique

Relaxing in the mountain setting with lightning bugs and tree frogs at night and song birds during the day, onsite hiking, being in a well maintained house, beautifully decorated, minutes from major attractions, but having satellite TV, magazines, games and DVDs in case you prefer to simply relax inside.

Perfectly Quiet and Relaxing Place

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was exactly what we were looking for! Everything was even better than described on the Internet! Clean, well decorated, comfortable sofas for TV viewing, well stocked kitchen, great tasting water, private hot tub, comfortable beds, and more! We have already recommended this place to friends and plan to return ourselves. ~

Owner's Response: In writing a description for your vacation rental it is sometimes hard to put into words what in reality guests will see and experience. So in saying my house was better than described is actually heart-warming to me. They experienced what in words I couldn't convey! It always too brings joy to me for my previous guests to refer my house to their friends, because then I know I've done more than one thing right. I am always adding to the provisions of my house - big additions or small additions, whatever I feel my guests will enjoy - so future or returning guests will feel special! Rent Newfound Cottage! I promise you'll arrive and leave knowing it was your hard earned money well spent.

Wonderful time!

We've stayed at several VRBO homes in the past...some homes are better than others. Newfound Cottage was quaint and adorable and very reasonably priced. I loved your detailed instructions on everything from directions, things to do and what to do before you leave. We are happy to do whatever is expected and really appreciated your instructions. It's obvious you care for this home and we enjoyed staying there. Thank you!

Very accomodating and child friendly

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 5 nights in October for my son's wedding which took place not too far from the house. There were 6 adults and a toddler and never once did we feel cramped for space. It is child friendly and the 3 bathrooms were a life saver with this many adults! We loved sitting on the front porch and the openess of the whole house. It's a very quiet and peaceful setting and a great house for the price!

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5
This place was so nice! My husband and I stayed here for our 5th anniversary trip away from the kids. It's far enough from everything to be private, but not too far to be inconvenient. Everything was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. It has almost been a year since we've been there and we still talk about that getaway! (Sorry it took so long to write a review!!!)

We really enjoyed the Cottage!! It was home away from home. It is a gorgeous place. A beautiful cottage. It was perfect for us. We had our 83 year old mother and it worked well for her. A bedroom downstairs and Den and Kitchen were great for her. The rooms are nice size and comfortable. We were close to all places we wanted to visit. We visited the Biltmore and went to Bryson City to ride the train. On Saturday as my niece and I were walking around outside you could hear the Church bells. Sounds that are lost in towns today. The area around the house was beautiful. We also enjoyed the hot tub. It was perfect after a day going on our adventure. The house was well stocked with thing you would need. We will make this the cottage the place to come to when we come to the Asheville Area. Thanks for sharing your little bit heaven with us.

Owner's Response: Wow! Your description envelops quite a few sights, sounds and things offered at Newfound Cottage that until you stay there, you really don't know exist, do you(?). As I try so desperately to describe the area, it's no wonder I've left some things out ... bells from the church, I'd taken them for granted, suitability for our senior citizens ... I hadn't forgotten about them, just hadn't taken into consideration they could travel with family and be completely comforable. And as I've said before, if you miss having the dirt and grass under your feet, miss the smell of the mountain air, miss the gift your eyes could give you taking in the scenery ... well, you've missed the biggest part of what you came to the mountains for ... haven't you? Thank you so much for your kind remarks and I hope the future holds a return visit for you and yours. God bless.

Charming! Charming! Charming!

What a lovely cottage - decorated so impeccably, and it had all we needed there. It was close enough to downtown to make the trip easy but far enough away to feel like we were not "in the city". I so loved the hot tub under the stars with complete privacy. I only wished we could have stayed longer. A great deal too! Perfect for our two teens as there was plenty of room for them to have their own space. Thank you so very much for sharing your lovely cottage with us for the weekend! We'd love to come again.

Owner's Response: Sometimes an owner wishes they could read the minds of previous guests, and potential guests do too, wondering what they thought. So it's always GREAT when a review is received to tell everyone "well, how was it?". I am glad to know teenagers found the accommodations satisfactory and that the hot tub met your expectations. We hope too you will find a way back to the solitude Newfound Cottage offers. Thank you so much!
