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

Cory & Floyd Fletcher purchased this cottage in 2011

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.

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!!

Home for Christmas

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Dec 30, 2013
  • Stayed: Dec 2013
We had a wonderful stay at the cottage. The location was perfect, the home ideal and so welcoming. It was completely decorated for the Holidays and made our Christmas away more festive that if we had been at home. The kitchen / living area open space was so perfect for having family time and doing a few things independantly but being together. There is no longer a bunk bed in the second bedroom, but we made it work. The home was clean and comfortable and very well kept, I would recommend to anyone visiting the area that didn't want to stay in the city and wanted to enjoy the less hectic outskirts of Asheville.

Beyond Expectations

My mother, Mother-out-law, little poodle and I (three old ladies and a dog) stayed here to see the Fall colours and attend the SouthEastern Animal Fiber Fair (an annual fair in Fletcher for folks who like to knit, spin or weave wooly fibers). The Blue Ridge Parkway and the fairgrounds were only a few miles away.

The house was super clean and very comfortable all surrounded by lovely farm countryside. It felt like you were staying at a friend's house, not a generic rental. The ramp was very appreciated by my mom. Taking walks and seeing farms, horses, cows, sheep, and chickens was my favorite part.

I feel so lucky we found this gem of a place (by searching the internet) in Mills River and
hope to return. Thank you, Cory!

The cottage was perfect with everything you need! We were there for three nights for a wedding which was in Mills River in the mountains. The cottage was close to the mountains and convenient to grocery stores and restuarants.

I have been And stayed in Asheville many times for years. I have stayed in some of the nicest hotels in Asheville and paid largely steep prices . When i came and stayed at the Cottage Inn with some friends, we stayed and enjoyed every accomodation you could imagi e. The detail of what was in it is truly World ckass. This place spared no expense It the decor. The extremely kind welcome received upon arrival was refreshingly warm and genuine. Now lets about the how clean and freshly newly updated And the smells and aromas were well thought out. We've all been in nice places where we find dust & it smells bad, Didn't see any at the cottage. When i come back to Asheville in the holiday season to enjoy family already living in the Asheville area, i will book there. This time i had to stay at the Mountaineer Inn. Its disgusting and had to pay more. Thank you Cory & Floyd for making the stay wonderful When were were there last time

We have now stayed at the Mills River "Cottage" on three (3)* separate occasions. The cottage is great, the surroundings are great, the Inn Keepers are great, even the cows across the street are great. We look forward our return trips.

* This most recent stay would have been our 4th trip, however we were late in making a reservation request. The alternative was, to say the least not up to the standards of the Cottage.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much! It's always a pleasure to have you and your family staying in the Cottage. We look forward to your next arrival!! (Soon, we hope) :)
