CLASSIC MONTREAT COTTAGE

Montreat Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7-9)

An historic old cottage built in 1914 is perfect for small groups (including youth groups) or families that want to be close to Lake Susan. The comfortable family room has a lovely wood burning stone fireplace and a dining table that easily seats 8. The spacious covered porch extends across the front of the house and is the space most enjoyed by all. Listen to the night noises of a screech owl or cicada as you relax in the swing, glider or one of the rocking chairs.

Downstairs there is one bedroom with a double bed and one with a single. The bathroom has a lovely old claw foot tub. The upstairs has two bedrooms – both pretty open with only curtains for doors. Two twin beds in each room. The upstairs bath is a full bath (shower only).

Wireless broadband internet provides connection to the outside world (if you desire it). Or relax playing old fashioned board or card games. Many are left at the cottage for your enjoyment.

While we have the modern convenience of a high speed wireless internet connection, the cottage is rustic meaning, there is no AC, no heat, no washer, no dryer, no dishwasher and no TV. Most visitors take time to enjoy the beautiful mountains and eat many meals at the conference center or the many restaurants in Black Mountain.

Kids enjoy foosball, hiking, rock hopping in the streams, playing basketball, tennis, or the Montreat clubs for kids. During the summer, enjoy throwing a pot on a potter's wheel at the Sally Jones Craft center or take a paddle boat ride on Lake Susan. Montreat Conference Center hosts a variety of conferences for all ages sponsored by the Presbyterian Church (USA). Hear a sermon at Anderson Auditorium (0.76 mi) by one of America's finest preachers. Enjoy the beautiful small children’s play area with a slow moving stream in the middle (0.67 mi) between us and Lake Susan. Take wonderful hikes on clearly blazed trails lasting from 45 minutes to all day.

Black Mountain is a charming town, with mountain craft stores and restaurants only 2 miles from the Montreat gate.

The Baptist Retreat Center at Ridgecrest (only 4.5 miles) and many other camps and retreat centers are up and down the nearby Swannanoa Valley.

Asheville—a delightful mountain city with shopping and restaurants—is only 20 minutes away. There you can find America’s largest mansion, the magnificent Biltmore House Estate and vineyards and the Grove Park Inn and Resort (The President and his family spent a weekend vacation there over Memorial Day 2010 before visiting Billy Graham at the other end of Mississippi Road.) See live Shakespeare performed at the Asheville Center Stage or spend a lovely evening at their minor league baseball park.

Lake Lure is only 1 hour. Enjoy white water on either the French Broad or the Nanahala River. The entrance to the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway is 13 miles west and the highest peak east of the Mississippi River, Mt. Mitchell, is an hour’s drive or a day’s hike.

It is only 1.5 hours to the Historic Cherokee Village & Casino.

Bring your own linens including sheets, pillow cases, kitchen and bath towells. We provide plenty of regular blankets for cool evenings.

Built by my grandfather and grandmother in 1914 I have been coming here since childhood. The kitchen sink, set low so the two girls (my mother & aunt) could reach it to wash dishes, and the claw tub are original. The girls attended school in what is now the post office. In the 1930’s my uncle and his family lived in the cottage over the winter when they, as missionaries, were expelled from China. The stone fireplace draws as well as any fireplace I have ever seen. Not fancy but a treasure.

My husband and I were very pleased with our cottage experience. We enjoyed the front porch and loved using the fireplace every evening we were there. The location was terrific - quick access to Montreat College campus and also downtown Black Mountain. We would rent again in a minute!

Charming, Rustic Cabin from the Good Ole Days

We absolutely loved our week in this charming cabin. It was just the type of place we were looking for: a place to disconnect from the normal pressures of the busy world and re-connect with family, friends, and God. With all the fancy places with posh amenities offered these days, this place is not for everyone - but it is for us! We will be back - can't wait!

We loved the charm of the rustic Montreat home.

I have visited Montreat many times and was very pleased with this cottage. The owner does a great job in describing how rustic the home is, so it ws just as I expected. If you are doing a lot of walking to central Montreat I recommend the creek trail, blue diamonds, to the trail by the road. It is a much more pleasent walk and I didn't discover it until our last day.
