Why the Owner Chose Asheville: : The house has been part of the family for 50 + years. Terri's grandfather raised a large family on this farm. It was his wish to continue to have horses and family here. He would be pleased to know people can come enjoy what he started. The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Year Purchased: 2007 - Off the beaten path, yet so close to all conveniences. Nestled in a beautiful valley, horses all around the property. Enjoy nature at its finest, frogs, fish, and occasionally a duck in the pond. Sounds of horses grazing just outside the front door. Only 5 minutes to restaurants, grocery and shopping.

Owner Description/Comments:: Growing up on the original 103 acre farm, Terri has a true passion for what she and her husband of 25 years have ventured into. Though the farm has dwindled in size, Clay and Terri Vick still maintain and operate 17 acres as a horse boarding facility, keeping their own horses as well. Realizing horses were going to be a huge part of our lives we created Willow Pond Stables 13 years ago. Now we are excited to open A Cottage at Willow Pond Stables for others to share our joy in this wonderful place we live.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were looking for a nice getaway for a long weekend over Valentine's Day and the Cottage was perfect. It had all of the comforts of a quaint mountain retreat. It had rustic charm with nice updates around the house to give it great shabby chic feel. The setting was beautiful amidst the farm and animals around. The hot tub was great for relaxing after a day of sightseeing around the area. It was nice and secluded, yet super close enough to shopping and entertainment that makes you feel like your time is well spent. We can't wait to go back!

Perfect location and close to Asheville

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at the cottage. The place is extremely cozy and extremely clean. We enjoyed spending Thanksgiving in such a beautiful setting. We enjoyed walking around the property, petting the horses, and enjoy seeing the chickens, cat, and bunnies. It's a great get away for a family to enjoy. It is close to Asheville and near a fabulous shopping area with great restaurants.

A charming and peaceful cottage!

Loved the location! Close to the Biltmore House, shopping and great day trips. We (2 couples) found it hard to leave the cottage for our planned day trips. Our stress level went down as soon as we arrived. The views of the rolling pastures and the horses were amazing! A lot of detail was put into this cottage. Will definitely stay again.

Family Time Well Spent....

  • 5 of 5

With our fast pace lifestyle and must have electronics... this was a great place to go back into time... throw the wood in the fireplace.. pull out the cards and old-game boards that don't require batteries... enjoy the kids... enjoy each other... enjoy the scenery.. and the local attractions are not far away...

Great location and very quiet!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at the cottage. The hot tub was perfect, the location was quiet and tucked away from the road and the house was well equipped. We built a fire and enjoyed both evenings between the living room and the hot tub. The beds were comfortable (more so than I expected) and the cabin had almost everything you could think of. The only thing I wasn't expecting was that the master bathroom and bedroom are not connected. Both bathrooms are in the hallway so you have to exit the master bedroom to get to the bathroom. That said, it was worth the small inconvenience. There were plenty of towels both for the bathrooms and the hot tub and a washer/dryer was included which was nice although we didn't need it for such a short trip.

perfect week in paradise

  • 5 of 5

This cottage exceeded our expectations. Everything was perfect and it was so well supplied. It was like going to our grandmother's homes when we were children. Everything was charming and neat...we almost expected to see them. And oh so clean. It is in a private, quiet, peaceful, relaxed setting. Even the animals....horses, cat, birds, and rooster...turned back the hands of time for us. The snow fall on our last morning even felt right. This cottage is located conveniently to interstates, parkways, downtown Asheville, Hendersonville, and many shopping areas if you have your own transportation. We look forward to a return trip to this beautiful cottage.
