Stoneybrook is an extraordinary property that has numerous streams with massive stands of laurel and lush foliage bordered and protected by the US Forest Service. Enjoy walking the nature trails with unusual native wild flowers and an awesome stand of trees of many varieties (some of which are marked and identified... one hickory tree is estimated to be 150 years old).
The very spacious 24 by 28 feet outdoor pavilion with a stone fireplace is a favorite gathering place for each guest. Imagine a romantic evening listening to the crackling fire with your love, regardless of the weather or curl up with a good book while listening to the beautiful song birds and the babbling brooks.
We provide many magazines for your reading enjoyment. You will find many books with points of interest of this area and games and such for children. Provided are two mountain bikes for your pleasure.
The Vineyard with hardwood floors, cathedral ceiling, skylight windows, and cable television. Brookside offers hardwood floors, natural finish tongue and groove pine board paneling decorated in nature wood motif. The Nantucket says it all. It has its own skylight bathroom and is decorated to match its name. The cottage, according to many guests, has more to offer than just being a great vacation spot. It is nestled on 3.2 acres bordering Mount Pisgah National Forest and it is located only 10 minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway.
Each of the three bedrooms and 2 baths have been totally remodeled...hardwood floors, cathedral ceilings, skylight windows, tongue and groove pine paneling are some of the unique features. Snuggling in comfortable beds as the Katydids sing you to sleep is a dream come true! Beds are 1 king size and 1 queen and 1 full size beds with luxury bedding for your comfort.
This vacation home is situated perfectly: close enough to Asheville to take in what the city has to offer, close enough to Pisgah National Forest to enjoy the outdoor adventures therein, and private enough to just stay on the property and relax.
The house has everything anyone could need. It has been charmingly furnished and appointed. Some vacation houses in which I've stayed look like the owners picked up used, unmatched furnishings at flea markets, but not here. The house is just lovely and thoughtfully appointed and decorated. The large kitchen could accommodate the cooking needs for a large family and the covered patio in the yard is perfect for grilling, eating and just sitting around the stone fireplace at night sharing the day's adventures.
Though I was there in early Spring, I'd be eager to see the property in Summer, as I noted the 10' to 15' tall rhododendrons that are budding (they're all over the property). The creek that's on the property is a wonderful place to sit and let the sounds of nature take away any stress or worries. I spent many hours there on the park bench with my sketch pad.
Elmer was the perfect host - I had stated that I hoped for privacy, and though he messaged me to check in and see if I was alright, and with some instructions, I never saw him (or anyone else).
The house is on an out-of-the-way road and I was not bothered by traffic or noise (other than bird song!). I highly recommend staying here.
The owners have thought of everything! What a lovely place with all of the comforts of home. It was beautifully decorated for Christmas including a tree and stockings hanging from the mantle. I would highly recommend this home for rental. The sunrise over the mountain was breathtaking.
There are several trails for wandering. I can only imagine how gorgeous the yard is in the Spring as there were many plants.
I will definitely consider this cabin again for future visits to the mountains.
The Pisgah Inn and restaurant is only 15 minutes away, but is closed this time of the year. They will reopen on April 1.
Dear Elmer & Ruby,
Thank you so much for sharing a wonderful place with my family, our experience on the house was great.
The huge amount of beautiful Christmas decorations really made us to feel like at home, the Christmas tree was
so nice decorated and in all the rooms were decorated as well.
The property was very clean, well organized with all the amenities for a great vacation. My favorite place
was the fireplace, we love to be outdoors with such nice furnitures enjoying the fire and the children doing
We are looking to be back soon, this is going to be the #1 place to stay again.
We visited Asheville for a long weekend and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Stoneybrook. The cottage had a very home-like feel to it. We enjoyed hanging out by a fire in the pavilion after a long day of sightseeing. The house was fully stocked and all you really need is your clothes and Shampoo. We look forward to staying here again. We were thoroughly impressed. Thank you again Elmer and Ruby.
So beautiful inside and out. Everything you could possibly need was provided and then some. The pavilion with its wood burning fireplace was wonderful and mesmerising.
I would highly recommend this cotrage.
Not only was Stoneybrook cottage beautifully located on a scenic mountain area, it was also beautifully decorated for the season. The owners went to great lengths to a make the cottage welcoming and comfortable. It is true that you only need to bring shampoo, clothing, and food with you. Everything else was supplied. The outside fireplace and covered patio is a real bonus. Unfortunately the drought and resulting forrest fires prevented prohibited the use of the fireplace this trip. Looking forward to using it in the future.
It was an easy commute to Asheville and other places of interest in the area.
