Overview

Waynesville Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

We live on this property in a separate house and have a small 7 acre farm. We raise llamas, donkeys, and fruit and vegetables. We also have 2 horses, 23 laying hens, 2 dog, 4 cats, and fish in the pond. This is a lovely rural community that is close enough to town to give you the best of both worlds.

The 'cottage' is a 1400 sq. ft. home built on a small hill with garage underneath it. Access to the home can be up the front stairs, up the inside stairs on foot or on electric chair that glides to the top of the stairs. A car can also be driven to the back of the cottage with access up 2 steps to the second bedroom and the rest of the house.

There is a hammock under the screened porch for relaxing, reading and listening to the birds. We have walking trails on the adjoining 30 acres, as well as a picnic table in the woods. There is a fire pit next to the pond for bonfires. The sky at night is filled with stars and the sounds of hoot owls. Deer and turkeys visit the hills. We are close to famous motorcycle roads that wind through the mountains. Well behaved pets are welcome, but we do ask that they do not get on furniture and are crated when you leave the home.

About Tony and Linda Sexton

We love the mountains of Western North Carolina and the lifestyle of living on a small farm, yet being close to the town of Waynesville and the city of Asheville. We feel that we have a responsibility to care for all of our animals and the land in a respectful manner. We make everyone welcome who visits here. We want them to love it as we do. Our mailing address is Sexton 383 Heath Retreat Rd., Waynesville, NC 28786

Tony and Linda Sexton purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Tony and Linda Sexton chose Waynesville

It just happened, as we wanted this property to live on, and the second house was a bonus.

What makes this cottage unique

We are close to many recreation areas. Motorcycle riders enjoy the location being close to some of their favorite mountain roads. Fisherman enjoy casting in our pond, and taking a short ride to fish the Pigeon River for trout fishing. Birders can enjoy looking for the many different species of birds that migrate through our area. Folks who want peace and time to relax can lay in the hammock and read or sleep. Commune with the many animals here, horses, llamas, a donkey, chickens, dogs & cats. Deer and turkey often come down from the woods. Hoot owls can be heard every night. Hikers can walk the property, or head out to the Appalachian Trail near by. Almost anything you might want to do, you can find here, or very close by.

This was one of those vacations that makes you feel you've been to a spa. Linda and Tony have provided a warm, relaxing, environment for their guests. The cottage was very clean, and nothing was overlooked when stocking the kitchen. There is a washer/dryer room, huge kitchen, stocked with all the cooking implements you will need, a great dining room, comfy living room, very comfortable king-sized bed, convenient bathrooms, and a sweet puppy (Poppy) to play with our Jack Russell, Finnie. We hiked the property, natural lovely vistas in every direction, visited the llamas, gathered eggs from the henhouse, ate tomatoes from the garden, and left without one remnant of stress left anywhere in our bodies. Waynesville and Lake Junaluska are within quick driving distance, both lovely places to extend the sense of retreat offered by the Tender Mercy experience. One of the best finds in the area - and we hope to be back. Thanks, Linda and Tony, for such a wonderful stay.

We loved it! We had a great time and enjoyed the privacy and quite. The cottage was warm and comfortable and we felt right at home. The water was great! It snowed twice during our stay and it was beautiful. Our deposit was returned very fast. This was the first time we had ever used VRBO and we had no idea what we were missing. We will use this service from now own. We hope to see Linda and Tony again soon.

A wonderful, relaxing week at Tender Mercy Retreat

We are a family of four with two boys, 16 and 8. We could not have found a better location for our summer vacation. The cottage is beautiful and homey, the scenery is grand and the farm provided endless diversion for the boys so we could get some well-needed rest. Tony and Linda are gracious hosts, always there when needed, but not intrusive. The kitchen was extremely well-equipped for a rental, and the fresh vegetables and fresh eggs were appreciated. We are counting the days until we can come back to Tender Mercy Retreat.

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5
Thank you for sharing your farm with us. We had a wonderful time intentionally doing little to nothing. I sat around reading and occasionally wandering out to take in the beautiful area. Loved watching the animals and petting the kitties. My husband and I spent plenty of time sitting on the screened deck enjoying the cool crisp air!

I had the opportunity to eat vegetables I picked from one of the gardens myself and also for the first time I collected eggs straight from the source. It was all just a pleasure. I recommend the place to anyone who just needs some breathing space to think and to unwind.

Also I want to note that the owners are a big part of the attraction of this place. Tony and Linda are genuine and just such welcoming hosts. You feel like you have known them forever. Thanks again!

The listing described the place accurately. The property was clean and well-maintained. The owners were very helpful and I would be happy to recommend the place to friends and family.
