Hendersonville Cottage Rental Photos and Description
2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, Bunk Beds , Sleeps 6
Romantic 1940's cottage built by a family that was said to have spent their time here in the summers. The neighbors, as it was told to me, was the ''Buddy Ebsen family better known to everyone as ''Jed Clampett on the Beverly Hill Billies'' the cottage is where their Butler lived and the main house is still standing and has now become another vacation rental.
So come and stay a little while where Jed walked and lived and played as a young lad and as the tale of the''Great room in this cottage he used as the dance floor.''
The great room has the original fireplace with gas logs now and large windows to enjoy the sunlight and the majestic 9 foot ceilings with the original beams in the kitchen and great room. Updates to the cottages that is made for your enjoyment.
The Great Room has a majestic TV Armoir that was recently installed and came from the Biltmore Inn another piece of nostalgia to be enjoyed by all who stay here.
The cottage has a picnic table under awning trimmed with gala lights and a barbecue grill onsite so that you can cook out and enjoy the table and with the summer breeze.
The drive was lined with Mountain laurel and Wild Azaleas and the same unique qualities are still here just waiting for you!
Just 15 minutes away from downtown Asheville, Biltmore House, Grove Park Inn and Broadmore golf. Close to shopping, antiques shops, just 5 minutes to downtown Historical Hendersonville, 20 minutes to Chimney Rock in Grand Lake Lure,15 minutes to Brevard that holds more unique shops and outdoor activities along with Water falls and Sliding rock they say ''that the water is soooo cold at the bottom'' that cools you off for the hot summer days. So go and enjoy these mountains and see what they have to offer.
These quaint towns are easy to get to and makes for a interesting day for your enjoyment during the day and great eating and romantic nights out!
With the Summer days coming to an end soon then the beautiful Fall picks up. The cottage has views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and from the front porch you can see these mountains as they turn to their crimson colors of red,yellow,orange and set with a back ground of the blue skies
at this time peace seems to fall over the misty trees better known as the Smoky Mountains and cottage with the gas log fireplace brings warmth to the atmosphere of how cozy it is inside snuggled up on the sofa and watching the television or even a retreat to the cozy futon with a good book.
Come and enjoy this cottage and all that it has to offer to make your vacation to the mountains a memorable one!
As Jed would put it ''Y'all come back now Ya Hear''

Why Jeanette Glenn chose Hendersonville
I bought this property in November 1999 rented it several years a single family residence. Until I found out about the history 'Can you imagine owning a place that belonged to a Movie Star that person would be Christian L Ebsen Jr. AKA as Jed Clampett on the Beverly Hillbillys now how awesome is that!
So I decided to turn it into a Vacation Spot so other could enjoy it. As Jed would say 'Come and Sit a Spell'
What makes this cottage unique
These homes where built in the 40's bought in 1946 as raw land and built later the next year.
How awesome is it that we have such history here but unless we tell it no one would ever know.
So come and enjoy this home and I have enjoyed putting it together and see the Deed of Trust that transpired back in Oct 1946 hey that was even before I was born.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We really liked the Great room and the fireplace open windows that lets so much light in. We were here to just enjoy some R&R and we found peace here at The Butler Cottage. Sitting on the Rocking chair front porch and enjoying the evening breeze. It was everything we had expected and the hospitality was great. We look forward to returning again. Thanks for allowing us to enjoy The Butler Cottage.
