COZY FLAT ROCK COTTAGE ON POND, 2 MILES TO EVERYTHING!...READ OUR 5 STAR REVIEWS

Flat Rock Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)

'Gardener's Cottage' is located in Historic Flat Rock on the Beckon Ridge Estate. Overlooking a picture perfect pond, you will feel the stress drain from your soul as you listen to the sound of water running downstream and watch the fish swim casually about. How can this special place be so close to town?

Inside you will find the 1 BR & 1 bath cottage comfortable and cozy. Downstairs is a fully equipped kitchen and dining area overlooking the pond & living room with 32 inch flat screen TV. The furniture is comfortable and practical.

Up the spiral stair (or the exterior steps) is the lovely bedroom with queen sized bed and bathroom with stall shower and laundry area. The cottage has central air and heat and is bright and airy.

Sit outside the bedroom on the small covered balcony to enjoy your morning coffee, evening cocktail or to read a book. It is a lovely private space overlooking the pond, dam and grounds.

While walking along the stream & around the pond (you may stay on the paved drive if you prefer), remember to stop for a bit to sit on a bench or one of the landscape walls and notice how nature surrounds you. The wonderful wildlife and foliage is not to be missed.

If you come by motorcycle, you probably know that this whole area is a Bikers Bonanza with great rides in all directions! Cruise Little River Rd, to Crab Creek to Dupont Forest or to Pisgah Forest and the ultimate...the Blue Ridge Parkway. (For your convenience, covered bike parking is gladly provided at the main house.)

All that Historic Flat Rock has to offer, the shops at Little Rainbow Row, Carl Sandburgs Connemara Farm, the goats, the Playhouse are all less than 2 miles away...and Hendersonville's historic Main Street is only 3 miles away, with many excellent restaurants, shops, and exhibits...and Saluda, The Green River Gorge with kayaking, tubing, waterfalls fishing and Thegorgezipline.com - ZIP LINES OVER THE TREES- all within a half hours drive. Breweries and Wineries abound!

You know, when the Gardener ran off with the Maid, we were concerned... But The Maids Quarters have been rented, and the Gardeners Cottage is ready for your arrival; so give us a call. OUR CALENDAR IS KEPT UP TO DATE - BOOK NOW!

*The owners live in the main house. They enjoy their privacy and they will respect yours.

We are formerly from the Catskill Mountains and Long Island in NY. When the kids moved on, we did too! We are semi retired and from the mountains, so WNC was an easy transition. We are just loving it here and hope you will too. We manage our property without pesticides. We raise Honeybees and Free ranging, organically fed Chickens and have been planting fruit trees all around our 8+ acres. We have stepped it up a bit this year by taking over the management of the Flat Rock Farmers Market for the FR Merchants Association. We hope you visit it while you are here at the Gardener's Cottage at Beckon Ridge. Memberships include: The Henderson County Beekeepers and The Hendersonville Hens as well as the Chamber and the Merchants Association.

Victor & Darlene purchased this cottage in 2012

We fell in love with this home and with Flat Rock. We are pleased to offer Gardener's Cottage for your vacation stay.

The grounds, the pond, the stream, distance to town, watching the water over the dam. You too will love Gardener's Cottage.

Gardeners Cottage

Could not have found a better place to stay in the area. Everything was as it appears on the site and better. The accommodations are immaculate and very romantic for those looking for time away from the everyday hustle and bustle but yet only minutes from downtown. The owners make you feel very welcome and the gift basket with fresh jam and honey from on site is a great touch. Not to mention the fresh eggs from the chickens on site. Spent the evenings by the fire and breakfast out doors in the morning. Can't wait to return for another wonderful stay in that oh so comfy bed.

I loved my stay at gardeners cottage. It was absolutely perfect. It was a lot more than I expected. My mother and I had a great time. My baby girl (dog) Madison even loved it. I always like going to the beach but I have a new place to go now. The play we saw about Hank Williams was awesome. Many thanks to Mr. Victor and Mrs. Darlene for the wonderful hospitality.

An Unforgettable Weekend

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 27, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2013
The words "idyllic" and "perfect" are the only ones that come to mind when thinking about our stay at the Gardner's Cottage this past weekend. We couldn't have asked for a better backdrop for our engagement. Upon arrival, we immediately felt at home in this cozy, picturesque cottage in the woods. The owners didn't overlook any details: we were welcomed with soft music playing in the background, a lovely gift basket including a variety of delicious local sundries, including farm-fresh organic eggs, honey, jam, wine and the best biscotti's we'd ever tasted. They also offered great recommendations for local restaurants and activities to suit just about everyone's interests.

The cottage was immaculate and included all the amenities you'd expect at home. Had the weather been warmer, we would have spent more time in the hammock by the pond, but it didn't prevent us from warming up by the chiminea or taking dozens of photos of the surrounding property.

The only consolation we had as we looked around this amazing place one last time was that we plan to book our next stay as soon as we possibly can. The owners were very hospitable, easy to work with and were very prompt about returning the security deposit. We recommend the Gardner's Cottage without any hesitation to anyone looking for a quiet and/or romantic getaway in an incredibly scenic and comfortable setting.

Genteel Country Cottage with Gracious Hosts

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 16, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2013
Echo of previous reviewers' comments. Most definitely recommend. Upon arrival after a long day of driving, soothing music, a bottle of wine, and a goody basket was such a treat. Great design and decor of cottage. Bedding extremely cozy and comfortable. Victor and Darlene are most excellent hosts and very helpful with suggestions and information on the area. Meticulously clean cottage. Close proximity to town and centrally located for many parks, Asheville, etc. What we especially appreciated was the peace and quiet and the viewing of flora and fauna.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a nice review. We are glad that you enjoyed our little corner of Western NC...We hope to see you again.

Gardeners Cottage is only 2 miles to The Carl Sandburg National Historic Site, the Flat Rock Playhouse, The Cinema, restaurants, golf, and Main Street Hendersonville with all its shops and nightlife.

Within a couple of miles you can patronize any number of good eating and drinking establishments, some with live entertainment on weekend nights. And you are only a few minutes from the supermarket or the food co-op for organic foods.

In addition to hiking trails and the House Tour, the Sandburg site, (aka Connemara Farm) is steeped in Civil War history. And be sure to see their nationally recognized goat herd. Of course the Dupont Forest, is just a short drive and The Green River Gorge with tube rentals and easy access for fishing and kayaking is just 30 minutes south. And thegorgezipline.com Zipline over the forest - AMAZING!

There is just so much to see and do around here in any season. The only problem is that once you find the hammock, you may not want to get up and go anywhere!

Private, but not isolated, Gardeners Cottage is right smack dab where you want to be!
