Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)
My husband and I have been married since 1990 and have had both full time and vacation rentals since 1993. We're big DIYers. I am an artist by nature, so interior decorating comes natural to me. My husband has artistic skills too but prefers building things. We built our cottage with our own four hands over a 3 yr. period, every weekend, every holiday, and our own money. A vacation rental business suits me for being able to earn income from home while keeping myself available for my school-age son, having time for family/school activities, as well as being able to clean and maintain my vacation rental to my high standards.
Tammy purchased this Cottage in 2002
Why Tammy chose Leicester
The community of Newfound in Leicester is a farming community. Since we loved the area enough to build our dream home here, we knew our guests would appreciate a home-away-from-home in a true country setting. Perfect location being 5.7 miles from the interstate, 20 minutes from downtown via in-town roads and only 25 minutes to the Biltmore Estate [via in-town roads]. So you get to enjoy time "vacationing" instead of driving. It's the best of both worlds!
What makes this Cottage unique
Relaxing in the mountain setting with lightning bugs and tree frogs at night, song birds during the day, being in a well maintained clean house, beautifully decorated, minutes from major attractions, while having simple amenities like satellite TV, WiFi, magazines, board games and DVDs in case of less than favorable weather. But also having the high end amenities like a hot tub, outdoor fireplace, onsite hiking and swimming pool when there's nothing but perfect weather in sight!!!

Mountain Get Away
This property is exactly as described!! It was definitely what we needed for a long weekend get away to attend a wedding. The house is well stocked and owners very accommodating. If ever in the area - this is the place to stay!!
Felt like a home away from home.
Pictures don't do this cottage justice. It's a home. Cleanliness decorations the view n location is 5 stars. This is if you want R n R. I repect the rules of the property owner because it's their home. If you don't keep a clean house then gi go a hotel. Steve n Deb
Wonderful Family Spot
We all had a great time. Plenty of room. Beautiful pool and close to lots of hiking. Kayaking and sightseeing
Perfect mountain vacation house
The house was just perfect for my family of 5. The salt water pool was delightful as well as the hot tub. The house is just beautiful inside and is decorated so cute and cozy.
When our family of 5 goes on vacation, a key to our success is comfortable sleeping arrangements ✅, a fully appointed kitchen ✅ a place for them to run ✅✅ and mostly PEACE and QUIET ✅✅✅
This home had all of that. We were able to visit Biltmore, WNC Nature Center and take longer rides to Dupont State Forest, Cradle it Forestry and Sliding Rock & Looking Glass Falls.
Favorite part of our trip was enjoying our home away from home. The pool, the hot tub, the fireplace...so perfect! And the home is stocked with everything you need and super clean. Even the drive up the driveway to the house is awesome.
