Asheville Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

You will be enchanted by the Clearfield Cottage which was just featured out of hundreds of rentals in the area on ABC TV's reality show, 'Sweet Retreats.' Click on the video and watch the beautiful footage from the Sweet Retreats episode about the Clearfield Cottage. The cottage is nestled in the Smokies with a spectacular view of Mount Mitchell and surrounding mountains but only ½ hour from Asheville’s world-class restaurants, entertainment, and the famous Biltmore Estate. This two story, romantic cottage is entirely new, fresh, green built, green furnished and eco-friendly. The unique interiors feature original artwork and mosaics by owner and internationally renowned artist, Rachel Clearfield. The downstairs kitchen, dining and living area has a stunning mosaic floor, named 'Stepping Stones in a Flower Garden' made of Brazilian polished granite. Upstairs is the amazingly intricate, mosaic bathroom shower, called 'Magnolia Trees,” made of European marble and colorful stones. The kitchen has all granite countertops. The upstairs bedroom has a beautifully finished 100-year-old maple floor and a sumptuously comfortable queen size futon bed with luxurious linens.

Outside the cottage there is a peaceful shade garden with a rose covered gazebo in which you can swing, listen to the creek and watch the birds and butterflies. Guests are welcome to enjoy and roam through the beautiful flower gardens. You also have a lovely outdoor sitting area right by your back door, perfect for enjoying your morning coffee or sipping a glass of evening Chardonnay and stargazing the sequined night sky without light pollution. There's also a wonderful barbecue, camp fire and chiminea area right by your own private creek.

This cottage is a perfect getaway for a romantic weekend, soulful retreat, girl’s time together or just a quiet, peaceful place to let go of the challenges of one’s life and return to the simple joys of existence and beauty. The owners are recording artist, cellist and conductor, Ron Clearfield, and his wife, fine artist Rachel Clearfield. There is an abundance of creative energy on this property for anyone who needs a place to find that seed of inspiration for their next book, album or painting. Without a doubt, this is a paradise for painters, photographers and nature lovers or just anyone who is looking for a beautiful, fulfilling time in the mountains.

Owner's Ron and Rachel Clearfield are musicians and artists. We've practiced meditation, sustainable living and the joys of life for many decades. The beauty of nature, art, music and healthy lifestyles are foremost in our beliefs.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2012

We actually built this guest cottage just this year (2012.) A labor of love, situated on our beautiful land; a place to share with others who are looking for something unique. We chose nearby Asheville because Asheville rocks! Incredible restaurants, entertainment and always fun things to do and people to see. They don't call it the 'Paris' of the south for nothing!

We've personally stayed many times in the cottage and have always been impressed with how peaceful, esthetically inspiring, quiet and restful our stay was.

OUTSTANDING HOME AWAY FROM HOME IN THE MOUNTAINS!

  • 5 of 5
It was very refreshing walking into the gardens of the property, and standing amid a cozy gazebo, cushioned with comfortable pillows, and a small bridge over-looking a clear, musical stream from the mountains. It felt even more warm, inviting and relaxing, being greeted by the owners of The Cottage. There is a comfortable sitting area outside the backdoor of the cottage, overlooking streams and meadows. Here a downward stairway leads to a clearing right next to the pure mountain stream, where there is an arrangement of grilling for family get-togethers or celebrations with barbecues. In the Cottage, both the living room downstairs, and the bedroom upstairs, feature spell-binding masterpieces - original paintings, as well as giclées. The kitchenette includes a full-size refrigerator; eat in dinner table, crockery and all necessary kitchen-room equipment required for a short stay. The bedroom is equipped with an armoire, TV, and queen-sized bed. The walls and floors of the bedroom and shower show-case, original, hand-painted murals, and hand-crafted mosaics. The lighting in both the living room and the bedroom is excellent!!. This roomy place can easily accommodate a family of four. The living room is equipped with an amazing library of books and magazines for all age-groups. This place is a convenient distance away from nearby hiking trails, scenic view points from the mountains, nearby eateries and restaurants. We are definitely coming back here soon :)

QUIET, PEACEFUL, COZY, COMFORTABLE

  • 4 of 5
This is a wonderful little place nestled in the mountains west of Asheville in a beautiful valley of farms, cows, pastures, fields. Perfect for two. The pictures accurately depict the ambience of this property. Prepare easy meals in the kitchen. Excellent grocery store 15 minutes away. Asheville is an easy, virtually straight in drive to downtown and art district 35 minutes or so away. I did not note even one store, gas station, etc, in the valley up to the point of the driveway to this property. Animal lovers will enjoy Sparky (dog), Carmel (cat), the horse and pony. Rachel is a wonderful lady and a talented artist. Reward yourself with a visit.

SECRET REVEALED!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Ok I'm sharing this incredible secret! Only because Ron and Rachel sheared their amazing cottage with us.
This was more then we could have ever imagined. Fantasy,magical,spiritual,peaceful ,total feel good experience.
Cottage...PERFECT,romantic and so so so more then the web can reveal. Rachel's art is a gift from God. The garden is a chapter in a fairy tail book. Ron and Rachel are gracious and very aware of privacy for their guests. ( but really, we wanted to spend time with this awesome couple).
The reason I waited a few days was because I was selfish and afraid that this magical place would book so fast that we could not find an open date. Coming back real Soon!!!!!
Who needs Europe when you have the Clearfield Cottage?????

Owner's Response: Hi Sheree,

It was sooooo wonderful having you and your husband stay in the cottage. Your words are very inspiring for us as artists (musician and painter) who had hoped that we could create a place that reflected all that we feel is important: beauty, peace and joy. The possibility of others finding those feelings through a stay in the cottage is our goal and our joy in why we make the cottage and gardens available to others.

It was a great having you stay,

Ron and Rachel

CHARMING

  • 4 of 5
The two-story (circular staircase) cottage is well appointed, and uniquely decorated with lovely artwork. The view is less than stunning--a corner of a small pasture--and the walking paths were overgrown. We discovered belatedly that the location was a 90-minute drive from the main entrance to the Great Smoky National Park, our primary interest in this trip; we should have chosen somewhere closer.
The hosts were very nice and helpful.

Owner's Response: Hi Lad,
Thanks for your positive comments. I must say though that your perspective regarding the views was quite surprising. Our guests have always marveled at our stunning views. The photos testify to that as well as the video that's on this site from the ABC TV reality show "Sweet Retreats" which featured and praised the cottage particularly the views. Thanks though for pointing out about the hiking paths. This wet, hot spring came on quickly and amplified the vegetation growth but we've caught up and the paths are open to enjoy. Yes, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is quite a distance from here. I suggest the next time you go on holiday do a little more research and be sure you ask your hosts those important questions like the location of the property relative to your key places of interest.
Best wishes,
Ron and Rachel

THE PERFECT LITTLE GET AWAY

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I could not have chosen a more perfect place to get away and enjoy time together. The Cottage was clean, the scenery spectacular, and the owners friendly and accommodating without being "bothersome". We had a relaxing, wonderful vacation. If you decide to stay at this location/vacation cottage, you will not regret it. I can't say enough good things. Just Lovely!

Owner's Response: Hi Karen and RC,

It was wonderful having you stay for the week. Rachel and I knew you travelled quite a distance coming all the way from Maryland to get to the cottage but we're both just so happy that the journey was well worth it and that you had a wonderful time!

Warm regards,

Ron and Rachel
