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.

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!
My boyfriend and I decided to take a last minute weekend trip to Asheville and rented this wonderful cabin. Susan was so kind and accommodating. Check in was easy and the cabin was so clean and comfortable! You are ten minutes from downtown Asheville but secluded in the mountains from the hustle and bustle. We will definitely be returning!
We were extremely impressed by our entire experience with Susan and the mountain cottage! She was quick to respond and always very pleasant in our communications. The cottage was amazing, very clean, comfortable, functional, and cozy. The internet and cable were very reliable, and we got everything we wanted from our weekend in Asheville and more! Wherever we went, the kids always wanted to go back to the cottage! Thank you Susan!
I took my girlfriend here for her birthday and we absolutely loved it. Susan made it super easy to book and was very helpful. She also left a bottle of champagne in the fridge for when we arrived. Check-in and check-out were both very simple as we came and left at our own convenience during the check-in and check-out periods. The cottage is very cozy and has great views on the balcony of the surrounding mountains and the night sky. It is also is very close to all the surrounding attractions and only takes 10-20 minutes to get to anywhere. I would definitely book here again and I recommend it to anyone looking for a private romantic getaway.
Great, quiet cabin in a peaceful setting. Close to Weaverville, NC, and Asheville. A delight!
Champagne awaits your arrival. We enjoyed the wildlife, the wild flowers, the serenity, etc.
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.
