About Rob Denton

Brother and Sister owners live a short distance from the house and are involved in the decor and maintenance of this sweet cottage. Managers Holly Berry and Rob Denton live behind the Cottage and work diligently to provide a safe, clean, up to date home for your vacation.

Rob Denton purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Rob Denton chose Asheville Area

Friends owned the home and wanted to live in downtown Asheville making play dates for their young daughter easier, so we decided to take it over and turn it into a vacation home. Very little work needed to be done since the home was well cared for by our friends.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage has a sweet deck in the trees for relaxing. Also off the master bedroom is a balcony out of the weather to enjoy coffee in the morning. A short walk behind the house and through the woods brings you to Brahma Ridge Event Center for hiking, sitting in the Gazebo or on the pond deck.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Staying here for all of our Christmas break was AWESOME! The 8" of snow on Christmas made our stay magical. Hiking to the Gazebo at night for cocktail was so awesome. The heater kept us toasty while taking in the snowfall & stars. Loved the live Christmas tree, fire pit, deck and woods. Holly, thank you for such a beautiful homey cabin. Wish it was ours! We will cherish the memories of Christmas 2010 at Catwalk Cottage.

Clean, fully stocked, and a beautiful setting!

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay at the Catwalk Cottage. We arrived late at night, but it was easy to locate and was lovely to have the lights, music, and heat on when we arrived. We were pleased to see they had everything we needed for a comfortable 3-night stay, from basic paper supplies, spices and cooking oil to towels, sheets, and extra blankets. They even had a small crockpot, which was a real treat and let us go out to enjoy our day but come home to a meal ready to go. We made good use of the grill the following night as well. The location is beautiful and relaxing, and though it was a bit cold for us to enjoy being outside, we enjoyed the views through the windows. The beds were very comfortable, and there was plenty of space for the four adults, my daughter, and my infant (who slept in the pack-n-play we brought). Our hosts were friendly, helpful, and accommodating, and they include numerous local magazines and pamphlets of the area and things to do in the home. Access to local stores is easy, and it's located within a reasonable drive to just about everything we'd want to do or visit in the Asheville area. Check-in and check-out were both a breeze, and we were simply thrilled with our stay. We will be back in the future!

Beautiful cabin!

Our stay at catwalk cottage was awesome! Very clean, cozy and well kept. Holly and Rob were very polite and easy to coordinate with. It's about a 25 minute drive from Asheville so you get the perfect mix of mountains and downtown. Highly recommend!!

Christmas Cabin

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived at the cabin a warm pot of spiced cider was waiting for us! The cottage was spacious enough for a family of four. Rob was very easy to work with and responded quickly to any questions I had prior to the trip. My youngest loved visiting the donkeys down the road :) It was a great trip and a great stay in the cottage.

I love how close we were to Asheville. Our visit to the Biltmore was the best ever. The house was so relaxing and peaceful.

Wedding Party's Pad

  • 5 of 5

Our wedding utilized all three cabins that Brahma Ridge has to offer. They were exactly what we were looking for--close to Asheville but still tucked quietly away from the hustle and bustle and much more homely and relaxing than staying in a generic hotel. With multiple cabins spread across the venue, the capability of having immediate family members stay on site during the wedding festivities was truly a great way to come together as one and we thoroughly recommend Brahma Ridge as the perfect venue for the outdoorsy couple. Holly and Rob do an amazing job at making guests feel right at home.

Catwalk Cottage

Such a cute little cabin! Very cozy and quaint. Made me want to grab a book and curl up in an armchair whenever I walked inside. This one is close to the Wineberry Lodge as well, which makes it nice if you have a large party needing to stay in reach of one another. Or perfect for returning for an Anniversary getaway.

We LOVE the Cat Walk House!

  • 5 of 5

I had not expected to be able to book a place so close to Christmas at the last minute. But we were able to book the Cat Walk House for two nights before moving in with the kids for a Christmas visit. It was warm, inviting, and perfect for us to create our own space for a little private time between ourselves before the Holiday Hoopla. It is the second time and second season we have been there. The first was in Summer. It almost feels like being in a tree house, the way it looks out into the woods over a bit of a ledge. There are cozy nooks and crannies both inside and outside the house. It is perfect for one or even two couples or a family with older children. There is a trail through the woods that leads eventually to the the main part of Brahma Ridge Event Center, a nice walk. The location is secluded and the house is quiet, but not isolated. It is also dog friendly.

Owner's Response: SWEET! I'm happy you enjoyed your stay and had the opportunity to hike around the property. On a side note we normally do not allow dogs in this house, but she was a small "fur child" and I just couldn't say no this time.
