About Cory Fletcher

The Cottage Inn is located on my family farm and have been here in the Mills River Valley for many years.

Cory Fletcher purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Cory Fletcher chose Mills River

Perfect getaway to the country but so close to everything. Asheville, Hendersonsonville and Brevard are all only 15 minutes away. Sit on either the front or back porch with a fenced in yard for playing and grilling, and watch deer running and jumping, cattle grazing across the way and a relaxed environment, yet with all the comforts and amenities of home.

The town of Mills River and the quaint historic downtown of Hendersonville offer unique main street with shops and eateries. You may also take in a Play from 1 of 2 Playhouses or a movie at several cinemas centrally located. It is home to The Apple Festival over Labor Day Weekend and Garden Jubilee in May, the Western NC Mountain State Fair, and future home of Sierra Nevada!

Historic Brevard is home the the White Squirrels, quaint downtown shopping, Brevard College, and many spring and summer art and music festivals.

Asheville is located just minutes north of the Cottage Inn and home to UNC Asheville, The Biltmore Estate, many art and music festivals and local Breweries. Historic downtown tours offer unique insight to the history of Asheville. Asheville offers a wide variety of shopping, dining and indoor and outdoor activites. It is an area rich in unique and eclectic art, dining, music, and outdoor adventures. There is something for everyone in Asheville.

What makes this cottage unique

Wake up to the peace and quiet of the country. Enjoy your coffee on the front porch while listening to the birds singing and the clean smell of the air. The Cottage Inn provides a special 'Welcome Basket' just for you with cookies and fruit. It is a relaxed unique environment you'll want to come back to year after year. You will also want to share this perfectly fantastic find with your friends and family!!

Great Place! Short Drive to Sierra Nevada Brewery, Asheville, Hendersonville, etc.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our short stay at the cottage. We came to town for a beer festival at Sierra Nevada Brewery. The cottage is only 4.5 miles from the brewery.

We really felt like we were far from civilization, although Ingles was "just around the corner".

Everything was top notch. the fruit bowl was great and much appreciated.

We will definitely be back as the cottage is just a short drive to everything we enjoy about WNC.

Thank You!!

I was so delighted with your wonderful cottage! The treats you left were appreciated and delicious. Although the weather was cold and icy, it was just what I needed- peaceful surroundings and a quiet time just for me! The location was perfect and close to everything I needed or wanted to do. Thank you for all the amenities, toiletries, paper goods, great wifi, books, and TV, and a beautifully decorated cottage. The only thing I didn't like was leaving! I hope to return and will definitely recommend your place to friends and family! Thank you again, Cory and Floyd!

winter visit

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful home-away-from-home! Such a clean, cozy cottage! Stocked with all the items needed for enjoying a comfortable stay (kitchen items, games, books, toiletries, extra blankets, etc.) with a thoughtful welcoming basket of sweet treats! Great location...away from the hustle and bustle of the city, but close to so many fun activities. Farm-fresh eggs and creamery items just down the street. The friendly owner was close by and ready to assist in any way to make our visit more enjoyable. We had a lovely stay and look forward to returning.

Cottage Home

  • 5 of 5

We had the best stay for one week in a sparkling clean, nicely furnished 2 bedroom home with a bath and 1/2 bath and for us a t.v. in each bedroom and the living room. was a the sports fans could watch what they liked and others could see what they wanted. Kitchen facilities excellent, so we were able to cook and have Asheville relatives over for a nice dinner and visit. Beds comfortable, the bath robes were a nice touch. We are from the west coast, so morning coffee on the porch, seeing 3 pileated woodpeckers in a tree nearby made for a terrific morning. Hosts were responsive and we had a wonderful stay! We have family in Asheville, and the drive to see them daily was a snap. We highly recommend this rental and will look forward to staying there again in the future! It's a win!

Where do you live?

More than Expected

  • 5 of 5

This 2 bedroom cottage home was more than we could have hoped for in a getaway rental. It was an exceptional value - easy to get to from the Asheville airport (5 minutes or so) - and it was great location central to all attractions we had interest in. We got in on a Friday - went to the Biltmore house to explore which was maybe 15 minutes away. On Saturday we explored Brevard as we truly love this Mayberry small town. We recommend Brevard Brewing and Oskar Blues Brewery here along with a sandwich and pie at Mayberrys restaurant in center of town. On Sunday we got our hike on and headed up to Looking Glass to capture the long range views of the land then headed back for the granddaddy of brewery tours SIERRA NEVADA. Was an incredible experience. In getting back to the host and the cottage we were more than pleased as the cottage is private, clean, well stocked with muffins and fruit on arrival, and being we came in season our host provided not 1, but 3 Christmas trees. That was the icing on the cake - in short this host cares about their guest experience and provides a true getaway well worth the price of admission!

charming and relaxing resting place

  • 5 of 5

I had the privilege to stay here for a week while working and enjoying the local mountain biking. This home is filled with all you could need and more! Great comforts of relaxing on the couch, sitting on the porch in the sun and cooking a great meal in a well equipped kitchen. The location was perfection! Quiet road right near 280 which takes you to Asheville or south to Pisgah and Dupont to do some exploring in the forest. I was getting so comfortable I didn't want to leave. I would definitely love to stay here again if I'm ever in the area.
