FIVE STAR RIVERFRONT 3BR COTTAGE NEAR ASHEVILLE & WAYNESVILLE

Waynesville Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-9)

The “Apple Orchard Riverfront Cottage”

Just a quick block off the Interstate and not too far from Asheville you soon find yourself traveling quietly through an apple orchard on a quaint narrow mountain road which suddenly explodes into a riverfront vista complete with rushing rapids right in the front yard of a truly lovely cottage surrounded by plant pots filled with vegetation and glorious blossoming flowers, weather permitting. You're smiling and haven't even parked the car yet. Off to the right you see the challenge of a bright new shuffleboard court beckoning some good old family competition later, and think what a nice way to bring everyone together. To enhance the experience you find an enormous exterior deck right off the living room that affords a more leisurely opportunity to sit and reflect on this lovely river view while the sounds of rushing waters subtlety background your relaxed conversation with loved ones. As you eventually return inside to a bright, large gathering room filled with endless hardwood floors and luscious warm room colors you enjoy the warmth of a flickering fire in a room filled with family and friends. You’re now in the “Apple Orchard Riverfront Cottage”.

Our little cottage was built in the 1850s and we completely remodeled to make it comfortable and cozy. All systems are brand new. Inside you soon discover three large bedrooms with amazingly comfortable beds and two beautiful spotless bathrooms, all filled with hardwood floors and plenty of windows. Throughout the cottage wonderful eclectic furnishings hand selected by caring, keen eyes continue to intrigue and peak both your interest and curiosity. Your exploration soon finds a wonderfully bright and cheerful, newly-remodeled kitchen well equipped and filled with just about any type of gadgetry required to prepare the tastiest hors d’oeuvres or a gourmet meal for eight. Nothing has been left to wishful thinking. A beautiful kitchen island topped in mountain hardwood beckons you to sit, sip coffee or open a bottle of wine to quietly linger and savior this moment. No kids for a moment, just the two of you.

And as you sit and sip, be it coffee or wine, to ponder the day’s potential; you realize how many wonderful opportunities await you here in the Great Smoky Mountains. You may decide to take a long leisurely walk right here at home along almost a mile of river frontage and ending in the apple orchards or bee hive stands where you might buy apples, peaches and honey. Perhaps you decide a quick drive into Asheville for a leisurely day of exploring the Biltmore or The Grove Park Inn, or all the neat restaurants and shops. For those more inclined to physical activity you might find yourself planning on rafting the rapids or tubing right in front of your cottage or zip lining the tree canopies near Asheville, or all the above. In fall, you may want to hike the mountain trails to view the vivid fall colors, knowing it’s a must see. And later in the year you may plan on the challenge of skiing the slopes of Cataloochee, just minutes away.

Regardless of your choice of so many varied things to do and see, one thing is truly certain: you ultimately will enjoy coming home again and again to the warmth and caring found nestled in your lovely home away from home, the “Apple Orchard Riverfront Cottage”.

Home was very nice, clean, well maintained!

Stayed eight nights and nearly cried as well pulled away! The home was super inviting, good cable TV, nice kitchen, remote (but still close to Taco Bell, thank God!). Took our babies, two Siberian Huskies, hiking every day, though it was also nice to lounge around the house too. Asheville, Waynesville and Black Mountains were nice areas (Asheille was a bit too trendy for our tastes however). Last day of our visit we went to Full Moon Worlfdog Sanctuary in Black Mountain, where we were able to partake in a ritual with native americans to pray for the animals and their wellbeing. That was the most interesting event that we attended, very unique experience, and we feel blessed to be able to help. We would absolutely come back to this home and recommend to others. We bought grass fed beef from a farmer in Asheville and in Black Mountain. Talking with him was very enlightening. This was one of our favorite vacations! (and we vacation alot!)

Wonderful Family Vacation!

What a wonderful family vacation! This is a beautiful house and property, with great views all around and plenty of space to roam and explore. The river view provided the perfect setting for morning coffee and evening wine, and the easy direct river access provided opportunities for swimming and tubing adventures. The house is wonderfully appointed, the beds all very comfortable, the location ideal with proximity to Asheville and Waynesville, the combination of activity and relaxation...our biggest decision daily - where to sit for which view to enjoy? Thad and Marilyn were great hosts, very helpful and responsive. We look forward to a return visit very soon!

We had a great time tubing the river from the property! Tubes provided. The house is beautiful and seems remote but is super close to everything. We went to mt mitchell , tons of waterfalls, Asheville, great smoky mtn national park.it was great for my parents who are over 75 and didn't have any stairs! The sound of the river ,easy walk to the river and everything provided, even gas for the grill, the beds are great and the house is clean and easy and very nice. We love the no fees!!! and the owners are easy to work with , even last minute.We miss it! And will come back as soon as we can.

A peaceful, relaxing home away from home

We loved our stay here. The house is at the end of a dead-end road, facing the river. It's quiet and private, yet everything you might need is a few minutes away. Sitting out on the front deck in the morning having coffee and watching the river is a wonderful way to start the day. The house is immaculate, comfortably furnished, beds are extremely comfortable, and there's lots of space. I'd recommend this home to anyone looking for a great getaway.

Thad and Marilyn,
Thanks so much for introducing the Apple Orchard Cottage to me. You were right about its unique location and river frontage. Very nice and refreshing. The home and furnishings are great, really nice kitchen, great space and fabulous vista of the river but I really like the location. The nicest grocery store I could imagine is just down the street and the Interstate is right there but totally out of sight and view. Best of all, thanks for the Blue Ridge Parkway day trip you call “Two Easy Hikes and Brunch”. Everybody who comes should take an extra day and do the “Easy Hikes”. The first to the Devil’s Courthouse at milepost 422.4 which was a short but strenuous trail climbing a half mile to its peak where panoramic views can be seen. The second to Skinny Dip Falls across the Parkway from the parking area at milepost 417. Skinny Dip Falls is a waterfall and refreshing swimming hole and soaking spot. Nice on a hot summer day with clear, cold water. Both are ½ mile hikes and very gentle. Later Brunch at the Pisgah Inn [milepost 408] capped off the perfect day. Tell everyone to ask for “Bo” who was the perfect waiter with wit and good conversation. Great wine, food, company. Well worth the extra day and experience. We’ll be back. Roger

Our vacation home, the 'Apple Orchard Cottage' is ideally located midway between the Waynesville-Maggie Valley area and Asheville, both about 15 minutes away. This cozy, secluded cottage is just off I-40 at Exit 31, giving you immediate and easy access to all areas of the Smoky Mountains. A short easy drive will get you to Asheville, famous for the Biltmore Estate,arts and crafts, dining and shopping; and Cherokee, famous for the Cherokee Indian Reservation and Harrah's Casino. Also, close by are Lake Junaluska, Hendersonville, Brevard, Black Mountain, Bryson City and Balsam. If you golf, there are numerous golf courses in the area:

Waynesville Country Club is just a few minutes away. This Donald Ross designed 27-Hole course has sweeping mountain panoramic views and is filled with challenge. It has a 4-Star rating by Golf Digest.

Laurel Ridge Country Club is also just a few minutes away. This is a wonderful Bob Cupp designed 18-Hole Championship course with clubhouse and other facilities to include tennis.

Lake Junaluska Golf Course is an 18-Hole, 5,034-yard course also nearby and offers a challenging Par 68 opportunity.

Maggie Valley Club is an 18-Hole, 6,500-yard, par 72 course with the flat Valley '9' serving as a 'warm-up' for the Mountain '9' with an 800-foot rise in elevation and an increased challenge.

Springdale Country Club offers an 18-Hole, par 72 course, 6,800 yards from the gradual elevation changes of the front nine toward Rocky Face Mountain, to the wide open fairways on the back nine where Cold Mountain serves as a spacious backdrop.
