Looking for a TOTALLY secluded hideaway in a mountain setting, yet minutes from the charming towns of Asheville and Weaverville? This cottage has everything you need for a romantic get-away or a home-base for exploring the beautiful Appalachian mountains. If you're an outdoor enthusiast, kayaking and mountain biking are but minutes from your front door. Want to unwind from it all? Then step out onto the deck where you can relax in your private hot tub while taking in the beautiful views. Use our home as a base from which to explore the wonderful sights, sounds and tastes of downtown Asheville. If you prefer, enjoy the provided books on the comfy sofa in the living room area, or relax upstairs in the loft/den. TV enthusiast? Enjoy the 42''FLAT SCREEN HI-DEF TV while reclining in the new recliners. With 3 acres of woods, the serenity of the area is perfect for a retreat from the routine of daily life.
We provide all the necessary amenities to make your stay as enjoyable as possible, and then some! Maps, menus, and written directions make it easy to find all the restaurants, shopping areas, and attractions you may want to take in during your visit. Games such as Scrabble and Trivial Pursuit bring fun and entertainment to the day or night. And speaking of night, enjoy a complimentary bottle of champagne while relaxing on the covered porch as you star-gaze or listen to the peaceful sounds of the French Broad River.
Our cottage is equipped with central air conditioning for the warmer days of the year, as well as ceiling fans for those times when a cool breeze would be perfect. Thanks to skylights in the loft and bathroom (yes, bathroom!), there's always a feeling of warmth and sunshine throughout.
Don't want to leave your pets behind? Then bring them with you! They'll love exploring the surrounding woods. There is even a wooded dog park less than two miles from the cottage.
We know you'll come to understand and appreciate the comfort of our cottage. We truly want to make your vacation special in every way.

Susan Poole purchased this house in 2008
When the 3 private acres adjacent to our 15 acres became available, we knew that would be the perfect place to build a vacation home for our extended families. As they are scattered around the world, it was important for us to offer a place that was near by, but afforded them the privacy they need and deserve. We soon realized this would also be a great place to offer as a vacation rental.
In this busy world, this is a unique opportunity to experience TOTAL privacy. One of the things we love about the cottage is sitting on the covered deck, looking out into the woods, and listening to the sounds of nature. It's also great to drive into Weaverville, about 5 minutes away, grab a pastry or two at the world's BEST bakery, and come back and relax on the patio or in the hot tub on the deck.
Thank you so much for letting us stay at the cottage! We had a wonderful time! Everything was so clean and organized and the secluded location made it so easy to relax! We had a great time visiting the sites around Asheville.
We definitely will be back around our anniversary! We loved staying here. Thank you so much for your hospitality!
This cottage was very private, but close to everything we wanted to do in Asheville. The cottage was extremely clean and Susan left us a bottle of champagne in the fridge for our arrival. The driveway up is steep and I would recommend arriving in daylight the first drive up if possible. If we go back to Asheville we would definitely stay here again!
Perfect place for a fun little getaway. My wife and I enjoyed the views and close proximity to everything that is Asheville. My wife and I look forward to staying again in the near future.
After a TON of research on Asheville rentals, we decided on this little cottage for our getaway. Unfortunately, we had an unexpected conflict arise, and had to cancel our trip. Susan was incredibly accommodating, and I'm giving 5 stars for the quick responses, and quick refund. We really hope we can reschedule a trip back to Asheville so we can finally experience this place!
This little cottage is perfect!! It is completely secluded and private but only about a 15 min drive to downtown. It was clean, comfortable, and we had everything we needed. The hot tub was so nice and relaxing after a long day downtown. It was the perfect spot my husband and I to celebrate our anniversary and we got to bring our dog! The owners are so thoughtful, and even left us a bottle of champagne in the fridge! We will definitely be back.
I was just looking to stay in the cottage again, but noticed that I had not left a review from my first visit, so I am doing that now. (I actually stayed in October 2013, but the review page won't let me pick a date that far back, so my review says 2014 instead). The cottage was neat, clean, and spacious, exactly as described. I stayed with my two cats, and they loved sitting out on the back deck or up in the loft looking over the railing. There was a little problem with the refrigerator late in my stay, but the owners fixed that themselves on the spot. They are lovely people. The cottage is secluded, but an easy drive to Asheville, and there are a super-Walmart, CVS, and other shops along the way if you need to pick up supplies. I (we) can't wait to come back.
My husband and I recently stayed here for the second time and we were just as pleased as the first time. The cabin has everything you need for a wonderful time in the Asheville area. We love the privacy and the owners are delightful and make everything very simple. This will be our go-to rental in Asheville whenever we visit.
