Overview

Black Mountain Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Call or email for Special Rates! Heartsong cottage is a charming turn of the century built home that has been totally updated and remodeled and is only 15 minutes from downtown Asheville. It has a covered rocking chair front porch with a private deck out back. It sits in a small mountain neighborhood. There are two bedrooms one with the master bedroom having king size bed and other bedroom having a set of oversized bunk beds and a double bed. All of the mattreses Many guests enjoy visiting the spectacular Biltmore Estate along with shopping and browsing the many galleries and stores in the Asheville area. Others like participating in hiking and water activities, attending a festival, concert, or play. Whatever your pleasure, you can always come back to the cottage and relax in front of the quaint gas log fireplace, watch TV or a DVD from the video library on our flat screen TV, play a family game or use your laptop to surf the web with high speed WIFI access. Relaxing in the comfortable Hot Springs spa and/or cooking out with the gas grill on our private deck is also a definite option.

The quaint downtown of Black Mountain is only three minutes away from the cottage, with the beautiful Lake Tomahawk only a short five minute drive (see picture. There is a trail around Lake Tomahawk with beautiful mountain scenery in almost every direction. Also adjacent to the Lake is a huge twenty five yard swimming pool with kiddie area for the whole family to enjoy. The pool can also easily accommodate lap swimmers.

Peaceful and charming, the cottage is 15 minutes from the center of Asheville with its many world class restaurants, year-round live entertainment, museums, art galleries, theaters, concert halls, and large exhibitions at the Civic Center. During the spring, summer and fall seasons there are festivals occurring all over the area with the Biltmore Estates Festival of Flowers occurring every April and the L.E.A.F. Festival taking place twice a year in May and October.

Asheville is also an antique hunter’s paradise, and the River Arts District (has more than 80 artists’ studios) produces some of the best art in America. Shoppers also love the boutiques and many specialty shops the downtown area has to offer. The quaint mountain village of Black Mountain, only 3 minutes away from the cottage also has a charming downtown area with many quality restaurants as well. Access to the Blue Ridge parkway is a quick and easy ten minute drive away. Lake Lure and the beautiful Chimney Rock State Park is a scenic and relaxing 30 minute drive. Mt. Mitchell, highest mountain in the Eastern U.S., is a 45 minute drive from the cottage up the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Please note that winter road conditions in the mountains can often be unpredictable. While the cottage is close to a main road about (500 feet), the road grade leading up the cottage while small, is still steep enough that a 4 wheel drive vehicle might be required if there is more than a few inches of snow on the ground. In more severe weather ( 3+ inches of snow or ice) guests may have to park at the bottom of the road and walk up to the cottage. Guests should keep abreast of weather conditions several days before their arrival and we also encourage them to call us as well for updated information on weather and road conditions. We highly recommend that winter guests consider buying travel insurance.

About Marilyn

Bill and I are seniors who are working. We have been people helpers all our life and made careers out of it. I am a retired social worker. We love the area of Asheville and found it to be very enjoyable and thought that others would want to come and visit but not everyone can afford to pay the high prices of vacation rentals. So we decided to get into the vacation rental business. Bill works full time and I manage the cottage.

Marilyn purchased this cottage in 2009

Cute cottage with everything needed to cook, sleep and shower!

  • 4 of 5

It is only a 2 person hot tub, not 3 like we were informed. We made due, taking turns with the other couple that stayed with us. Plenty of dishes for cooking and everything was clean! Beds and pillows were comfortable too. It is an early checkout at 10am... No sleeping in by the time you start the laundry and clean the dishes! Overall was a nice place to stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the good overall rating. We appreciate it. We do let our guests know ,however, that the hot tub seats between two to three depending on size of the person as well as the 10 am check out. We are sorry that there seems to be some confusion on that. Also please note that we can at times accommodate a later check out, if guests ask for this ahead of time. we hope you can come back.

Relaxing and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a wonderful week's accommodations! My husband, (4-yr old) daughter, and I had a lovely stay. The cottage is adorable and just what we were looking for to get away from our busy lives. The hot tub was enjoyable and the location was great for trips into Asheville and local hikes around Black Mountain. I particularly enjoyed getting out for some since bike rides - the scenery is beautiful! Thanks again!

Perfect little getaway

  • 5 of 5

A very quiet and comfortable cabin with everything we needed. Loved the idea of the journal that provided us with a little insight of local attractions and restaurants. Thank you for a lovely place to enjoy an amazing weekend with my husband and daughter.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Heart Song Cabin.

My children (2 and 6) loved the bunk bed, and my husband and I found the king sized bed to be very comfortable. The roomy living room and kitchen area are nice, and dishes, pots, pans and utensils were available so that we could cook at the cabin.

If you're not planning to cook, there are lots of restaurants nearby in Black Mountain and Asheville. The downtown area of Black Mountain, Lake Tomahawk, the Western North Carolina Nature Center and the playground at Montreat, all located within 10 minutes of the cabin, provided most of our entertainment during our stay.

Bill and Marilyn were helpful and easy to get in touch with. We hope to return next year!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed the hot tub and crock pot. Even though there are neighbors we have placed fencing or plants to allow for some privacy. I am glad that the shower drain was working great when you came and you didn't detect any smells either. We strive to keep the cottage clean and comfortable. The location and price are always winners for most guests.
