About Jennifer Mathis

My husband and I live just outside Charleston, SC with our two daughters. We love to travel and explore new places which is one of the many reasons we have fallen for Western North Carolina.

Jennifer Mathis purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Jennifer Mathis chose Swannanoa

Three and 3/4 acres backing up to hundreds of National Forest acres was the first thing that caught our attention. The second was a ramshackle house on the property that we were sure was destined for the bulldozer. After a little time and consideration, we thought it might be more interesting to give this small home a second life. With the brilliance of the nighttime sky to motivate us and the braying of nearby donkeys to make us smile, we undertook a renovation that lasted a little over a year. The end result is a gathering space that makes us want to crack open a game, pick up a guitar or read a book on the adirondack swing. We love it and hope you do too!

What makes this cottage unique

Private but close to all the things we love to do - discovering good restaurants, music, experiencing Asheville's deep arts culture, hiking...

Super convenient to Asheville and we still get to feel connected to the mountains and nature.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The coziest little red house

  • 5 of 5

This was our first HomeAway experience and we were not disappointed. We arrived late afternoon on a Sunday and found the house tucked up a slight slope amongst trees and a nice piece of property. The house looked exactly as the photos on the site if not better. The porch and yard all offer wonderful views of the mountains and a lovely farm down below. Horses, donkeys and sheep were always in plain sight along with the neighbors chickens. We were lucky enough to use the fire pit a few nights even with the inclement weather. The house was very clean and tidy and decorated beautifully...details in every nook of the house didn't go unnoticed. Games and books were on the shelves for use along with movies as well. We even noticed staples left in the pantry and cupboards for us to use which was a very sweet touch. Lots of windows and natural light throughout the entire house to give a spacious feel yet still cozy. A book left by the owner with fun suggestions and great places to dine and must see spots helped our week get chocked full quickly. The location was great as we were just about 15-20 minutes from Asheville and surrounding areas. The owner is easily accessible and answered all of our questions promptly. Definitely felt like we were home. We loved the little red casa so much we hope to go back again by summer. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a little piece of heaven.

Little red awesomeness!

  • 5 of 5

This cute cabin is beautifully situated on a gentle slope overlooking a working farm. Each morning you can wake up and enjoy your coffee watching the resident bunny rabbits explore the edge of the forest. The cabin is well stocked and a designer's touch is evident in everything from the floorplan to the decor. Our two preschoolers loved the games and books as well as the fire pit for the smores. A perfect little cabin indeed. The owner is easily accessible and is eagar to ensure everything is perfect for your stay. I'm certainly going to stay again in the near future.

Privately situated at the end of a dirt road, you will fall in love with The Little Red Casa, Whether it's family time you crave or a chance to connect with friends, this sweet little place has been set up to accommodate. Completely renovated offering 2 bedrooms and 1 bath with an open floor plan that invites you to stay awhile. Hang out on the sectional and watch a movie from the growing collection,grab a book and settle in, or choose a fun board game. The house is set up to make you so comfortable you won't want to leave.

But... if you choose to venture out and explore we are conveniently located between Black Mountain and Asheville, so great restaurants, hiking, the arts and more are just a short drive away.

The mountains surrounding Swannanoa are vastly undeveloped and breathtakingly gorgeous. Treat yourself to some time well spent surrounded by Mother Nature.
