About The Owner

My husband and I are both engineers. We have 2 children. It took us 2 years with some contract help to renovate the cottage. Photo of our family with our dog. We love the outdoors. We love to share the outdoors and our home with others.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2007

Why The Owner chose Asheville Area

We live close by. We wanted to be able to use Lake Sheila for swimming and fishing. Lake Sheila is a private lake. Perfect for swimming. Clear water. We enjoy building and preserving peace and experiencing nature at it's best - natural!

What makes this cottage unique

Peace, wildlife, camping feel without other tents around and all the nice amenities of a home. Lots of fish in the lake. No motor boats allowed. Perfect for swimming. Clear water. Canoe and paddle boat use with lifejackets provided. No additional charge. Boats are already at Lake Sheila ready for use. Expect to see some wildlife - bear, deer, fox, bobcat, rabbits, squirrel, many birds, bats, owls, frogs, fish and turtles, snakes and spiders too!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Frank and I had such a restful visit. The cabin is wonderful, and the patio/firepit was where we sat the most!

Sumudge loved the woods! Walking through the leaves. We thank you for a real rest.

Very unique and private cottage. Beautiful stone patio with partial view of lake.

  • 4 of 5

Nice recently redone cottage with woodburning stove. We were there three nights with two in the 20 degree temp range. Once the stove warmed up we were cozy as could be! Pet friendly! Very nice.

It was nice and quiet, exactly what we were looking for. It was so cozy and welcoming. Beth, the owner, was the sweetest. Thank you for letting us stay.

Beautiful setting!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this cabin. The views were beautiful and it was so comfortable. The weather did not cooperate for enjoyment of the private lake or the outside patio, but we still enjoyed our stay. Thank you!

Always Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Our favorite place to go is the 4 seasons cabin.

It's always the perfect getaway! Beth stocks us up with everything we need, the place is always immaculate and welcoming when we get here.

I can't say enough about this place! It's our family's favorite hideaway from it all!
