Laurel Creek Cottage is perched above Laurel Creek nestled on nine wooded acres and is being offered for the first time. This 1,050 square foot cottage is surrounded by native laurels and rhododendron and is tucked in a mountain cover that was the love and pride of my Grandfather. The cottage is an extension of everything my grandfather was passionate about....undisturbed nature, privacy, and simplicity.
The 1,050 sq. foot living space is flanked by a set of french doors leading to the 350 square foot deck perfect for relaxing and dining while overlooking Laurel Creek and the forest. This spacious two bedroom, one and half bath cottage is designed to bring nature indoors and is decorated with a blend of old and new. The master bedroom features a handmade queen twig bed positioned with a panoramic view and cozy reading nook. The guest bedroom has two twin beds and there is additional sleeping accommodations on the pull out sofa in the living room. A fully appointed eat in kitchen completes the cottage.
Greeting you at the top of the stairs, you'll find a fun chalkboard with perhaps a few local activities or festivals listed, a fun reading selection, board games, cards, and yes a TV with full satellite package and Wifi.
Located in the heart of Hendersonville Laurel Creek Cottage is bordered on one side by fifteen acres of wooded estate and twenty on the other. You are truly tucked away with nine acres to roam at your leisure. The antique log cabin on the property is currently not for rent and is owner occupied (single early 50's couple, no pets) on an occassional basis. Please let us know if complete privacy is a concern.
During the spring and fall deer like to call Laurel Creek their home along with turkey, and an occasional fox. The cove also provides endless hours of bird watching with a large variety of birds including my Grandfathers personal favorite the large pileated woodpecker.
You are three miles to the heart of downtown Historic Hendersonville, and at the backdoor of Dupont Forest with Asheville, Brevard and Saluda only a few miles away. Hendersonville is a charming small town located in the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina and home to The Flat Rock Playhouse and Poet Carl Sandburg's home place where he pinned Abraham Lincoln's the Prairie Years. This beautiful area of the country provides for plenty of exploring, shopping and dining experiences. The Biltmore House, zip line adventures, kayaking, canoeing, tubing and hiking are minutes away. Just down the road between Hendersonville and Brevard is the Dupont Forest with more than 10,000 acres of forest, trails and waterfalls. Brevard known as the 'Land of Waterfalls' is a quaint small town with tremendous cultural and natural opportunities including the 500,000 acre Pisgah National Forest.
I have tried to include detailed photographs that should give you the true feel of the cottage. Thank you for your interest as we start this new adventure of sharing our slice of heaven.....
My husband and I love Hendersonville and all that this area has to offer. We invite you to join us and see why we call Laurel Creek our slice of peace and tranquility!!
The property has no artificial light which makes for a spectacular view of the star filled sky. Directional spot lights also offer the opportunity to light the mountainside at night....
Sit on the porch above Laurel Creek and catch a glimpse of the deer or turkey passing by..... All but one room in the cottage offer views of the Laurel Creek
First,the cottage is marvelous! It is spotlessly clean and accurately described. Here are
two reasons to rent: number one is the thoughtfulness in every detail of this cottage.
Number Two is Royall herself who is the best communicator that I've ever encountered
on VRBO. The owners and cottage are perfect in my opinion. Go stay and enjoy!
I was headed to the Hendersonville area for a wedding & checked VRBO in hopes of finding an alternative to staying in a hotel - what a lucky break to have found Laurel Creek Cottage! The setting was welcoming, peaceful & beautiful - the perfect break from DC! We enjoyed sitting out on the deck with our morning coffee, reading, & listening to the creek. The interior decor is impeccable & makes you feel completely at home - and Royall was the epitome of hospitality before & during our stay. Many thanks! I will definitely be recommending this to others.
We brought our two children to celebrate my son's 8th birthday. When I spoke with Royall regarding the property and surrounding area, she immediately told me about all the wonderful adventures that my family would enjoy. We started off with Moonshine Mountain, then Carl Sandburg's house (which was a favorite for the entire family), and then some light hiking. All of her recommendations exceeded our expectations.
My kids loved the cottage! Royall left food for the turkey and deer on the property which the kids thought was so cool! I'm pretty sure my son wants to move there :). We would love to plan a summer trip to Hendersonville and would stay here again! Thank you Royall for truly paying attention to all of my family's needs. We had a blast!
The pictures don't do Laurel Creek Cottage justice...it is all you see and much more! The cottage has been wonderfully decorated with very special extras, fresh flowers, bedside chocolates, stocked pantry, wonderful linens and a welcome bottle of wine. Then there is the deck! It is spacious, comfortable and overlooks beautiful Laurel Creek, We loved the sound of rushing water. Royal and Brent are gracious hosts. We come to Hendersonville often and have stayed in almost all of the vacation rentals in the area. Laurel Creek Cottage is the best by far. We hope to return many times.
WHAT A WONDERFUL STYLISH RETREAT AWAY FROM THE HOLIDAY BUSTLE!!
ARRIVED TO A WELCOME CHALK BOARD CHRISTMAS GREETING FROM OUR HOSTS, BRENT AND ROYALL. EVERY DETAIL HAS BEEN WELL THOUGHT OUT, FROM A STOCKED PANTRY TO A CUPBOARD FILLED WITH CARDS & BOARD GAMES AND A LIBRARY OF FAVORITE VIDEOS.
THE DECOR IS RUSTIC CHIC - VERY COMFORTABLE IN STYLE, WITH CAREFULLY PLACED UNIQUE FINDS AND ONE OF-A-KIND ANTIQUES. WE SLEPT IN A COZY QUEEN BED DRESSED IN CRISP LINENS FROM PORTUGAL AND LISTENED TO THE RAIN - SO PEACEFUL. MORE RAIN IN THE MORNING, BUT NICE TO SIT BY THE KITCHEN WINDOW WITH COFFEE AND READ, WITH GORGEOUS VIEW OF THE CREEK. WE UNWOUND IN THE SERENE SETTING BEFORE THE HOLIDAY MADNESS WITH OUR FAMILIES...DID NOT WANT TO LEAVE.
VENTURED TO HENDERSONVILLE FOR A DELICIOUS GOURMET BRUNCH WITH BUBBLY AND BLOOD MARYS AT SQUARE ROOT ON MAIN STREET. ALSO HIT THE MAST GENERAL STORE FOR LAST MINUTE CHRISTMAS GIFTS- FUN PLACE!
LAUREL CREEK COTTAGE IS A GEM- ABSOLUTE PERFECTION- ROYALL, SO MEANINGFUL TO HAVE A PLACE THAT IS INSPIRED BY YOUR GRANDFATHER'S LOVE OF THE MOUNTAIN LANDSCAPE. WE WILL BE BACK SOON!
My husband and I were looking for a long weekend getaway during the Thanksgiving holiday and this cottage really stood out on our search. The owner was beyond wonderful to work with. She knew that we would be coming in later in the evening on Thanksgiving and asked us if she could have anything at the house for us to make it easier for us. She mentioned coffee and creamer and that was all it took for me! When we arrived there were even two bottles of wine! The house is absolutely gorgeous and spotless! The master bedroom was adorable and the bed was dreamy and more than comfortable! We didn't really get to enjoy the view until the next morning so when we finally did we were in awe. Right off of the back deck was a beautiful view of the mountain and the stream coming down. We stayed 3 nights and dreaded going home because of how wonderful our stay was. As you can tell we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be visiting again soon! Thanks Royall for an amazing stay!!!
