FRENCH COUNTRY COTTAGE WITH WRAP AROUND PORCH & DECK

Saluda Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom , Queen and twin, 1 Bath w walk-in shower and claw foot tub

Be surrounded by peace and tranquility and enjoy a little piece of heaven as you enter the property nestled on 7 wooded acres in Saluda on top of Mt. Vista. You will feel as though you may be in the Italian countryside with the tan stucco, French tile roof, and granite stone walls of the main house built in 1897. We have many outdoor entertaining areas, a circular fire pit for roasting hotdogs & marshmallows, and a covered stone tea house overlooking our blueberry orchard, with an outdoor wood oven for baking pizza & bread.

Take a stroll through our flower garden to the 1920's Victorian cottage which is furnished in a French country style with Brazilian cherry wood floors. The kitchen walls are made of granite and the floors old travertine. The bath has been updated with a french hand glazed tiled walk-in shower and a antique claw foot tub.

Owner Description: Year Purchased: 2006

We are Susan & Mark Olivari with our newest addition to our family, Isabella, a beautiful surprise 4 years ago. We are in our fifties and had moved to North Carolina from Louisiana after Katrina. We found this property and have been renovating the last 4 years. We have learned the history and stories told during the last hundred years of the property, originally called 'Dwelle Heights'. Between us we have 6 children, mostly grown and away. We enjoy the peace, beauty and the change of seasons this area brings.

My daughter and I stayed at this doll house for a one night getaway. We were in awe of this little French country cottage! The grounds were spacious and beautiful from the travertine tiled gazebo, stone pizza oven, beautiful gardens down to the blueberry field out the back door where we picked ample amounts of blueberries for our breakfast. The cottage was clean and so cozy. We enjoyed the front porch by candlelight, listening to the birds and watching fireflies. Saluda is a great small town with great local food in the family owned businesses. Some recommendations are The Purple Onion restaurant, Random Arts studio, and a short drive to hiking trails and waterfalls in flat rock. Susan's place was dog friendly and inviting. The photos don't do it justice. Will definitely be visiting again!

Wonderful and Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5
My husband, our little Minature Pinscher and I recently stayed for 6 days at the cottage. From the start, we were so pleased with the beautiful and peaceful setting, all of the outdoor amenities on the property (the pizza oven, fire pit, etc.) and the overall comfort and loveliness of this quaint cottage (not to mention its fireplace, clawfoot tub and wraparound porch). The owners, Susan and Mark, are such gracious and pleasant hosts who go out of their way to ensure that you experience nothing short of a comfortable, relaxing and memorable stay.

We found the location to be convenient to everything. We enjoyed the nearby hiking, the spectacular Biltmore Estate, and the historic district of Saluda which is a mile down the road from the home...don't miss checking out the Purple Onion restaurant down the street...amazing organic and delicious cuisine!

We would highly recommend a stay here for a romantic getaway, for adventure and nature lovers, and definitely for people traveling with their pets.

We look forward to returning soon!

My husband and I just returned from a wonderfully relaxing vacation stay at this comfortable and cozy cottage. Beautifully decorated inside and out. A perfect location with the town of Saluda right down the road and having access to great shops and eateries. Susan and Mark were fantastic hosts and made us feel like family. We can hardly wait to return. We highly recommend this cottage for great getaway!

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5
My girls and I enjoyed a two night stay in this lovely rustic cabin. We all loved it - the girls particularly enjoyed the landscaping and hiked around on little expeditions taking photos of the flowers and finding blueberries and blackberries. Susan is a lovely host, and we enjoyed speaking with her and her daughter. We would stay again.

A jewel in the mountains

  • 5 of 5
We spent memorial weekend at the cottage with our 14 yo son. The cottage was luxurious and cozy. We tried our hand at baking pizzas in the outdoor oven and enjoyed picking blueberries right outside our door. Mark and Susan are wonderful hosts and make every effort to ensure a pleasant stay. We took the short drive to Flat Rock to visit the Carl Sandburg house and to Hendersonville for the gardening festival. The cottage was easy to find but we felt secluded in the woods. If you enjoy luxurious sheets, don't miss sleeping in this comfortable bed!!! The property is delightful with surprises at every turn.

Charming and secluded country cottage in Saluda

  • 4 of 5
As the first guests in this charming cottage we were thrilled with the beauty and secluded feel of the accommodations. Susan and Mark are gracious hosts and try to get everything right for their guests. This small cottage is ideal for a romantic getaway for a couple. Saluda (try the Purple Onion for sure) is a quaint town close to Asheville and Hendersonville as well as the green River Gorge so there is plenty to do with minimal travel time. There are a few minor items that once attended to will easily make this an excellent place to stay and we intend on coming back in the spring. For the price of a hotel you get a wonderful place to stay with all the personal touches that come with staying at a B&B like wine and a warming fireplace..see you guys in the spring!
