On ten acres in a truly pastoral area just south of Asheville. Secluded and nestled in the woods, yet flooded with natural light. Completely private, fenced rose and boxwood garden provides outdoor lounging, dining and fire-siding (firewood and fire starters are provide for all of our guests).

Why Johanna Carr chose Hoopers Creek
The property offers the ideal mountain experience: Gorgeous views, without the falling-over-a-cliff landscape which usually accompanies it! Secluded, rolling hills dotted with cows, yet close to downtown. Farmland punctuated by mountain and equestrian homes. We've never had a visitor who hasn't commented on the serenity and the beauty of our property.
What makes this Cottage unique
Women traveling alone, or with little ones, can enjoy complete privacy while feeling 100% safe. Families with babies can rest-assured that no infant cries have ever penetrated the sound-proof ceiling!!

Above and Beyond
My husband and I have always preferred staying in vacation rentals while traveling, but now that we have a baby, a clean, comfortable, spacious rental is a must. This rental is absolutely immaculate! From the polished concrete floors to the beautiful counters in the kitchen and the sparkling white bathroom, I had no reservations about letting my 9 month old crawl all over the place and explore his temporary home.
A vacation rental such as this far exceeds a hotel room when traveling with a baby. The exceptionally accommodating owner made sure we had all the comforts of home, including a brand new pack and play (with sheets), an infant bath tub, a high chair, and a changing table. Other thoughtful touches included a package of baby wipes in the changing table and several baby books displayed on the windowsill near the crib. It made traveling with a baby so easy! There were also locally made muffins and scones, yogurt, and even k-cups for the coffee maker (cream and sugar provided as well). It was so nice not to have to worry about running out in the morning to find a store and purchase these things on day one. The kitchen is well-equipped and we prepared several meals there.
The rental is spacious and beautiful. Having a separate bedroom where we could put our baby to sleep in the evenings so that my husband and I could enjoy the evening relaxing by the fire pit or watching tv, without having to tiptoe and whisper was wonderful. We were all so comfortable, we really didn't want to leave!
The owner and her family are fabulous people. They truly want their guests to feel at home. They are available if/when you need them, but completely respect your privacy otherwise. The rental is even nicer than the pictures demonstrate. The value of this place is incredible. My family and I love to travel and don't often visit the same place twice, but the beauty of Asheville and the comfort and ease of travel the farmhouse provides has convinced us to return this summer. Thanks Johanna and family!
Thank you so much Erin! We had been waiting for the opportunity to outfit the guesthouse for infants and toddlers, and your family provided. We know from experience what a schlep traveling with baby stuff is. Not having to bring one's own pack-n-play, and having a changing table sounded like heaven to us; we're glad you agree! We look forward to seeing you in July.
Beautiful green grass and plenty of trees! We loved the privacy it offered!
the drive there was beautiful and so was the place itself. We had plenty of room for parking and the views we could see from the windows and outside patio were breathtaking! The goats were a nice surprise and fun thing too! The inside was so clean and cute! There was coffee available and some other little snacks Around! It really is an all-around great place to stay and I felt safe and secure the whole time! The best part was how accommodating they were for the baby we had traveling with us!!
Excellent accommodations! Close to dining, sight seeing, and shopping
Relaxing in a very welcoming, private location. We enjoyed our second stay at the big White House!
Perfect Asheville cottage
This cottage was perfect for us. We were traveling with kids, and it had everything we needed- from toys to a pack n play to a hooded bath towel. It was close to everything we wanted to do while we were in town. And, it was beautifully designed and decorated.
My very favorite VRBO!!
My husband, newborn baby, and I stayed here a few days before Thanksgiving 2017 and it was AMAZING!!! The accommodations were so nice, clean, and perfect for us. The owner went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed, and provided so many things for us to use with the baby (pack n play, changing pad, bath tub, baby towel, etc). We absolutely loved it here and can't wait to come back!
Clean, Charming & relaxing, it didn’t take long for the modern farmhouse to feel like home, goats were a bonus! We loved being a short drive from downtown, the Biltmore or a major highway, yet still being able to return to the peace and quiet of the countryside. Great space for my wife & I, Johanna was very welcoming, if we get back to Asheville we would gladly stay again.
15 minutes to Biltmore Estate. 20 minutes to downtown Asheville. 10 minutes to nearest supermarket (Ingles). 13 minutes to the nearest organic market (Earthfare). 10 minutes to a truly great latte.
