|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
Relax and enjoy your vacation at this great getaway in the mountains. Located 15 minutes to Hendersonville & Brevard, 10 minutes to the Asheville Regional Airport, 20 minutes to Asheville & 10 minutes to the entrance of Pisgah National Forest. THIS IS THE PERFECT LOCATION FOR 3 MOUNTAIN CITIES!!! YOU CAN'T GO WRONG.
From the upper level of the cottage, enjoy the breath taking from the large deck. Overlooking a 5 acre private fishing lake with a view of the beautiful mountains of Pisgah National Forest in the background. Take a stroll across the lake in the paddle boat, wet a hook and reel in your catch for supper. The lake is stocked with bass, bream, catfish & rainbow trout.
From the lower level, relax on a long covered deck and enjoy feeding the koi, bream & bass. A comfortable sitting area for dining outside, a porch swing and chairs are provided for your comfort.
YOU ONLY NEED TO BRING YOUR FOOD & DRINKS, EVERYTHING ELSE IS PROVIDED!!!
This Cottage is privately owned and managed. You will receive a more personal greeting when you arrive and we try to do anything possible to make sure your stay with us is one to remember. We can be reached 24 hours a day if there is anything you need.
The Cottage was remodeled in October, 2007 and is kept very clean. We have been very happy with the renters we have had visit because they have kept it nice & clean for future renters.
We would love to have you visit us. If you have a special occasion around the time you here, let us know and you may arrive and find a surprise.
We just got back and had a very nice long weekend. We took our two girls, and two of their friends (ages 11-13). They loved fishing from the paddle boat. The downstairs was great because all 4 of them could have their own space and my husband and I had the upstairs to ourselves. The house is very clean and cute. There are loads of clean towels and sheets. The two decks are a lot of fun to hang out on. We grilled out and enjoyed the quiet.
Online---Beautiful pictures of a clean home and great deck.
Unfortunately, that is not what you get when you rent this property.
The pictures that the owner posted on HomeAway are many years old---very outdated.
Getting to the cottage-you pull into an event center that is partially abandoned and non functional followed by an old shed/building that has no roof and is ripped apart.
I give a star for location. Good location 10-15 mins to Sierra Nevada Brewery(great place) and 20 mins to Brevard, 30 mins to great water falls.
I give another star for the lake in back of the cottage. Geese and fish to feed and fish.
I take away three stars for:
-The beautiful pictures of the deck are a joke. Both front and back decks are run down, parts that are broken, gates hanging off hinge and nails protruding. The front deck---there are boards you need to be careful walking on for fear of them breaking.
-Overall run down status of cottage
-Cockroaches/water beetles everywhere
-30-40% of all light switches do not work
-Downstairs ceiling fan does not work (over Kitchen)
-Completely destroyed gas grill
-HVAC is a mess. Gas burner upstairs that is ventilated through house with a constantly running central blowing fan. Thermostat is old and not accurate. Ducts are CAKED full of dirt and mold.
-HVAC room confirms mold with over grown patches on blower and humidifier.
-Windows and screens so dirty that it took my family 30 minutes to clean and open.
-Majority of blinds broken
-Downstairs front storm door broken, flings open and has no handle.
-Closet door broken
-Large oven burner and knob broke (on Thanksgiving get away)
-Upstairs shower drain clogged---could not take showers in that bathroom
-Upstairs toilet clogged repeatedly--with just toilet paper
-Outside fans not functional
-The surrounding lakes decks are old and broken. Use caution
-Paddle boat that owner advertises is very old and run down---no way we were going out on it.
So....what did the owner say about my complaints?
-Told me "clean the broken grill" I said no. Then had him bring another to the cottage
-My above numerous complaints afterwards? He was unaware of "some" of the things and he blamed his cleaning lady for not telling him.
This is an ok cottage if you want an average place to get away to if you want a step up from state park cabins. However, do not expect the cottage to be anywhere near reflective of the description/pictures. This is not a well maintain luxury cottage.
This is a nice property if you are looking to get away from it all! The porch and the waterfront are great amenities. It is an older cabin, and many items are needing repair or updating, which might be off putting to some travelers. For the most part, it was clean and comfortable. I give it 3 1/2 stars.
The place was filthy!!! I called to ask for our cleaning deposit back as my co-worker and I had to clean the floors, the bathrooms, take the trash out etc. YUCK!! I called the owner and he gave a lame apology. I asked for a mop to be delivered the next day or for him to send a cleaner. He said he would do something and never did. We were there to work and worked from 7am-7pm and had no time to look for another place. Please do yourself a favor and don't stay here. It is also right on the main highway which the pictures creatively leave out.
THIS IS A GREAT PLACE FOR FAMILIES WITH KIDS. THE OWNERS ARE VERY EASY TO WORK WITH AND THE POND AT THE PROPERTY IS GREAT FOR ENTERTAINING THE CHILDREN. THIS PROPERTY IS IN CLOSE PROXIMITY TO ASHVILLE AS WELL AS HENDERSONVILLE.
We had 4 adults and 3 children stay here and it was perfect!! We stayed over Memorial Day weekend and enjoyed the apple festival in down town Hendersonville which was just a short drive away and visited the biltmore estate the next day. Our stay was great and the cottage was perfect for us. Ingles grocery store is less than 5 minutes away. Sat out on the deck every morning for coffee and enjoyed it in the evening also. The view is breath taking. It does butt up to a roadway but it wasn't unpleasant. The kids caught around 20
Fish right from the dock. Small brim but the kids had a blast!!
