About Susan Eggerton

I live in Asheville and am available at any time for specific needs. I have several rental properties so am usually scurrying around tending to one of them!

The house is suitable for kids. In fact it is a great area for children. It is very safe. There is a big field w/ a pavilion that can be used for small groups and a small stream that is great to play in. There is however a pond so supervision is a must!

The Gerton area holds a special place in my heart. We use this house quite often. The community is very welcoming, should you choose to join them in any of their events such as 4th of July fireworks or covered dish suppers.

I am an avid tennis player and love to be outdoors, so am available to set a match for or with you in Asheville! My husband and I ride motorcycles, so should that be your passion as well, we can sure point you to some lovely rides.

I think you will be very comfortable here!

Susan Eggerton purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Susan Eggerton chose North Carolina

Gerton is close to Asheville yet this small formerly vacation community still has a very 50's feel, as though you have gone back in time. Peaceful!

What makes this cottage unique

You can't beat this location for a vacation rental! You are 15 minutes from Lake Lure with its restaurants, the beach, boating, golf, tennis courts. Rumbling Bald provides climbers delight. Chimney Rock Park is truly a wonder to see, with great hiking trails. There are also free hiking trails in very close proximity.

Asheville is a 20-30 minute, easy beautiful drive and has a ton of things to do and see. Hendersonville is approx. 30 minutes away, as is Black Mountain.

The house has a lovely deck. The wireless reaches here so enjoy reading or catching up on the news while staring at the mountains each morning. Ahhh.... There is a grill on the deck as well.

Excellent retreat!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this wonderful cabin for approx. 6 weeks when I first moved to the Asheville area. It is really comfortable, well-appointed, and nicely decorated. It is extremely quiet, with two notable exceptions: the chorus of the songbirds in the morning and the sound of the local church bells that play a hymn or two every evening at 6 pm. (Both of those are sounds I will miss!) The town of Gerton is extremely small and quiet, people are friendly, and you are less than a half hour to both Asheville and Hendersonville. Susan is a great hostess -- readily available if you need her, yet happy to give you your privacy, if that's your preference. I highly recommend this property!
