Asheville Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This magical retreat in a wooded setting has picturesque old world charm reminiscent of an Italian Alpine cottage.

Red Gate Cottage, situated on a knoll in Beaverdam Valley, is a vintage log cabin faced with stone. Semiskilled craftsmen working over decades, using stone and antique brick, produced an effect that makes the cottage resemble an ancient stone house in the Alps. The original log walls inside have been restored and preserved.

The luxury renovation by the Architect/Owner features high pine-faced cathedral ceilings throughout. The river stone fireplace is a focal point where people enjoy gathering to watch movies and cable HDTV or to just soak up the relaxing atmosphere. It's a great venue for romantic couples, friends and family groups to celebrate holidays and special occasions.

A hot tub on the stone patio, cradled by massive rock walls, rests under a vine-draped pergola. Beyond, a sunken garden has blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, and fresh herbs to use in the gourmet kitchen, and a fire pit for roasting marshmallows.

From the deck, you can enjoy close mountain views as you dine or sit around a blazing fire in the chiminea. Relax in the hammock, and listen to the sounds of the abundant wild life mingling with those of barnyard animals from nearby farms. Flocks of wild turkeys wander by. Guests recently saw a total of eight black bears (including 4 cubs) during their 10-day stay.

Peaceful and quiet, the cottage is within 10 minutes of the center of Asheville with its many world class restaurants, year-round live entertainment, museums, art galleries, theaters, concert halls, and large exhibitions at the Civic Center. Golfing, rafting, fly fishing and horseback riding are among the local attractions, as well as the Grove Park Inn and the famed Biltmore Estate.

Other nearby activities include spas, YMCA, dancing, yoga, live music, great shops, coffee houses, farmers markets, NC University activities, and the Nature Center. Asheville is an antique hunter’s paradise, and the River Arts District (more than 80 artists’ studios) produces some of the best art in America. Shoppers will love the boutiques and specialty shops. A 24-hour grocery store is 5 minutes away, and there are many gourmet shops – the Greenlife Market is not to be missed!

The NC University (UNCA) campus is just minutes away. Black Mountain is within 30 minutes, and Lake Lure, Chimney Rock Park and Wolf Laurel Ski Resort are all within 45 minutes. Mt. Mitchell, highest mountain in the Eastern U.S., is an hour’s drive up the Blue Ridge Parkway.

The scenic Beaverdam Valley meanders past the country club golf course en route to the spectacular high mountains of the Blue Ridge Parkway – where you can enjoy hiking, mountain biking and scenic drives. Yet the fantastic restaurants and night life of Asheville are only a few minutes away.

At Red Gate Cottage, you can enjoy both town and country, truly the best of both worlds. So bring the children, bring the dog. Here, you can get away from it all but still stay in touch by telephone (free long distance) and high speed wireless internet.

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
Oh my, what a wonderful, beautiful piece of paradise! Georgia was a gem to work with, and The Red Gate Cottage was beyond our expectations. We felt as though we were living in a fairy tale in this clean, cozy, well appointed cottage. Georgia's specials touches from the moment we arrived, made us feel at home. Wine, cookies and a special, personalized cookie for our dog were just oh so special. We loved the fact that we were close to everything, yet felt secluded at the same time. Wine was enjoyed outside with the chimnea, and dinners were spent with the fireplace warming us inside. We wanted a fenced property for our dog, and this was absolutely perfect!

Bachelorette Bliss

  • 5 of 5
Thank you so much for opening your beautiful cottage to us. It was the perfect place for a Bachelorette weekend - small enough to provide a cozy and intimate atmosphere, but big enough for a dance party in the living room!

Wonderful, quiet getaway close to town

  • 5 of 5
We appreciated the fabulous southern hospitality. We had wine and cookies awaiting us when we arrived. Red Gate Cottage was the perfect place to unwind after a busy day of sightseeing. We loved gathering around the fire, both inside and out, as we recapped our day and planned the next. It was so quiet and peaceful we hated to leave. Perfect for a family or couples traveling together.

Wonderful Cozy Cottage, Great Location

  • 5 of 5
3 girlfriends and myself rented this cottage for a girls weekend in early February. Everything about our stay was wonderful. Georgia was very easy to communicate with during the booking process, in planning mode and when we arrived at the cottage. She quickly and clearly answered any question that we had.

When we arrived to the cottage we were greeted with a plate of cookies and a bottle of wine (Thank you!). The cottage was in an awesome location. It was very easy to get to from the airport, very easy to drive downtown Asheville for dinner, shopping or spas :) There also are many nearby grocery stores for stocking up on provisions. It was also close to some wonderful hikes the Mountains.

The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to make some nice meals. The gas fireplace made the house very cozy. The rooms are well appointed - nice lights, little shelves, comfortable beds, good bathrooms. This was the perfect little house to have a relaxing weekend.

Georgia, thank you again for everything - the girls and I had such a great time!

Adorable, cozy cottage with lovely owner!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this adorable cottage with our kids and my parents for 2 nights right before Thanksgiving. Georgia was very accommodating and let us squeeze our reservation in between 2 other reservations that she already had. The cabin was clean, well stocked, and just as adorable as in the pictures. There are so many cute, relaxing areas to enjoy outside, as well as inside: a nice playscape for the kids next to an adult fire pit area that we would have enjoyed in warmer weather; a deck sitting area; a little bistro area on the side, tucked away on the way to the hot tub; & the hot tub behind the house in a private location. The kids had fun warming up in the hot tub in the freezing cold weather. We enjoyed our time at the cottage as much as we enjoyed the Biltmore! Thank you Georgia!

Lovely mountain retreat in the heart of Asheville

  • 5 of 5
Our group arrived later in the evening and we were pleased that Georgia had thoughtfully left the cottage well-lit and cozy for us upon our arrival, with delicious cookies and a bottle of wine waiting for us by the fireplace! Her attention to detail and utmost concern for our comfort was apparent from the very start. Any time we found ourselves in need of any extras that one may forget to pack on a trip, the items were often right there in front of our eyes, waiting for us to use them! The kitchen is well-stocked with amenities and we were able to entertain guests & prepare dinner & breakfasts together with ease. There are two fire pits that we very much took advantage of (with plenty of firewood), the yard & porch areas were impeccably landscaped and the hot tub was enjoyed every night of our stay! One of the best parts of our trip was soaking in the tub after a long day of exploring under the star filled sky, we even saw a few shooting stars! It really is a cottage straight out of a fairy tale.

The location was ideal for our trip, far enough away to feel secluded and in touch with nature but close enough to make a quick trip to the grocery store or grab a bite downtown. The book of information about the area was very helpful and Georgia went above and beyond to provide ample recommendations on parking, restaurants and other activities in the area that ended up coming in very handy during our trip. We ended up doing several hikes during our stay, eating at many of the restaurants in the book that Georgia provides and going to the NC Arboretum. I can't wait to plan another trip to Asheville, I definitely would stay at the Red Gate Cottage every time I visit and hope to share this gem of a place with other loved ones in years to come! Thanks so much for making our visit a pleasant and relaxing one Georgia, I am happy to recommend Red Gate Cottage to anyone thinking about booking!
