Great, relaxing place to stay outside of Asheville

  • 5 of 5

My wife, 2 dogs, and I had the pleasure of staying in this cottage while vacationing in the Asheville area. The cottage was clean and included everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. The small koi pond with the small waterfall out front was great along with the lake with small deck for fishing in back! It's about 25 mins away from downtown Asheville and a short drive to Hendersonville and Brevard. It's also conveniently located to a gas station and grocery store, but far away from everything to make you feel like you're out in the country!

Thanks Jeff for a great place to stay while on vacation!

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Five of us stayed here for the weekend and found it to be perfect! It was basically just as described in the listing, but it was even more impressive in person.

The location is pretty convenient -- there are plenty of restaurants and stores in (reasonably) close proximity, and it's close to Pisgah National Forest. Downtown Asheville is about 20-25 minutes away. I was afraid we'd be "too far out" but did not find that to be the case at all.

The set-up of the house is perfect for two couples or two smaller families. Since each level has its own entrance, deck, bathroom, refrigerator, etc., there is plenty of privacy for everyone. However, there is plenty of space for everyone to congregate together and hang out, especially out on the decks!

The ponds were really the selling point for me (and everyone else in my group, I think). The big pond is HUGE, and the smaller pond is very pretty and features a tiny waterfall. There are plenty of fish to be caught (whether you catch them or not is a different story, of course!), and there is even a paddle boat on-site that you can use to get into the water! There are also lots of ducks and geese around...we were able to enjoy two geese and their seven babies, who could be seen walking/swimming around the property as a group the entire weekend.

The house itself is definitely older but seems to be well-maintained and seems to have had some upgrades and updates along the way. The furnishings are quirky and comfortable and suit the cabin perfectly.

Booking the rental was an easy process, and the owner was very friendly and helpful. We had no need to contact him during our stay (everything was just fine!), and we were not bothered by anyone while we stayed, either.

We are very pleased! I think this will be our new go-to spot in the NC mountains!

Calm, Relaxing weekend

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with our 2 pups rented the cottage for a birthday weekend getaway. The home was perfect! Towels and clean linens were provided along with everything we needed to make breakfast and lunch in the kitchen. We spent a lot of time on the paddle boat and caught 4 fish while we were on the pond! The cottage is out in the country, with a gas station and Food Lion nearby. A perfect spot for relaxing and unwinding. We went on several hikes at Dupont State Park and saw 3 waterfalls. We also took time to see the Sierra Nevada Brewery which was amazing and a must do. We had a fantastic weekend and couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Thank you Jeff for a great weekend!

First timers

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time here, and our family had a great time!!! The kids fished and played outside all day. At night, they caught fireflies. It was good old fashion family fun and something we will always remember. Definitely, not our last time visiting.

Comfy Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this cottage.....the grounds around the cottage are beautiful, and the cottage itself if comfortable and well-kept. The cottage itself is very cozy and keeping with the owner, Jeff, who's a delight himself. We're looking forward to returning again. Thank you, Jeff!

Cottage getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a wonderful time at this cottage. We had a great time even though it rained everyday.

The cottage was very clean and the photos were accurate. The owner was very kind and helpful with any concerns we had. I would gladly recommend this property to anyone wanting to relax and enjoy nature. We visited DuPont State Park and highly recommend it as a must see.
