About the property

Ebsen Vacation Home was originally built by Buddy Ebsen's parents Christian L Ebsen and his mother Frances. The deed has been secured from the local courthouse and has been framed for the walls at the cottage. They came down from Illinois and moved to Florida then came in Oct of 1946 bought this land in the Naples area of Hendersonville, North Carolina for their summer home to be built and live there during their summers when Buddy was a young lad.

In later years Buddy Ebsen (AKA as Jed Clampett on Beverly Hillbillies) would come from Hollywood to relax and stay here at this cottage. I

So come and enjoy the Ebsen Summer Home built in 1940's and updated with all the modern conveniences so you can enjoy the Yester years and still have the comforts of today.

The Carolina Granite Fireplace that stands so majestic in the living room with 10 ft ceilings ,hardwood floors and large living room for lots of relaxing. and here you can see the Blue Ridge mountains from the windows.

The Kitchen has large open windows to allow the morning sun to kiss the windows sills and as you make some hot tea or cup of coffee and just outside that kitchen door is waiting a deck with a welcoming chair and table to enjoy the morning as the dew begins to lift and dry from the boards and the azaleas and blooming cherry tree and old apple tree lifts their heads to the sun you enjoy the quiet and peace of the back veranda with no worries and the planning of your excursions for the day. Then to remember that at the end of the day and tired you can still return to this deck and enjoy the evening and night comfortably because the mountains nights are quiet cool even in the summer months that is like a refreshing drink of water to cool the insides as well as the outside from the heat of the day.

Then retire to the bedrooms covered with Egyptian sheets so silky that when you sleep and you arise in the morning rested and ready for the next day excursions..

There are alot of places to see and enjoy while your stay at the 'Ebsen Summer Home'

This house has also a Front Covered porch that you can view the Blue Ridge Mountain rocking chair with outdoor furniture open windows to enjoy the outside seeing the trees and beautiful azaleas that adorn this 1940 Bungalow house.

Short distance of 15 minutes Asheville, Brevard, Hendersonville, Tuxedo, Lake Summit and Lake Lure. 30 minutes to Pea Ridge Equestrian Center. 6 minutes to Western Carolina Agricultural Center.

Each place has it unique shops to purchase things that are made locally for tokens to make your stay enjoyable and life time of memories to cherish.

As Jed would put it 'Come and sit a spell'

About Jeanette Glenn

I am a native of Hendersonville NC .

Jeanette Glenn purchased this bungalow in 1999

Why Jeanette Glenn chose Asheville Area

In 1999 I bought this first piece of property and for many years it was a monthly rental but the history behind the scenes that where told to me about Buddy Ebsen and his family actually bought this property many years ago and built a home and a cottage and this was there summer home. AKA Jed Clampett and I thought was a beautiful way to display yester years and let other people enjoy it.

What makes this bungalow unique

I was so impressed of course with the property because of the views from the front porch and all its history.

So as Jed would put it 'Come and Sit a Spell'

I recommend you do this very thing. Relax, smell the mountain air, and if you like walk the grounds it is just like it was back in the early 1940.

Back in time

  • 5 of 5

Took us a step back to slower-paced less stressful days. Loved the decor and the cozy, homey feel. Convenient to places we wanted to visit and were able to return early enough in the evenings to watch TV and relax. Got in some much needed downtime. It was great!

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had an absolutely amazing time staying here. A secluded location but very close to Asheville, good hikes and breweries. The cabin had way more than we anticipated and truly was a home away from home. Very rustic and cozy, hot water and a fire pit with horseshoes, a TV with enough channels for your downtime if necessary. Everything was wonderful. Definitely recommend and will hopefully come back!

Owner's Response: Great sounds like it was just what you needed. You all come back Ya hear and sit a spell as Jed Clampett would put it. Upon on the little mountain sitting outside at night with the fire pit burning you will notice how close the stars are to you.

I would recommend a set of the electronic pest repellents for the mice and the ants, otherwise it was great place to stay, convenient to get around. I did have trouble getting the wifi to work.

Owner's Response: I have a pest control company come every 3 months to take care of this property. When guest live there for a short term rental there is always a chance that they just might not quiet tidy up as often as some others do. I would recommend if that is the case to please tell me and I can always have the pest control people to come earlier. This traveler as I recall never told me that they had pest problems. So I cannot fix what I do no know. The wifi is directly wired to the modem and if for some reason the wifi is weak is because sometimes the device that the guest are using is not an updated device that has an internal wifi hook up. I thank all my guest for constructive criticism.

Such a special place!

My friend and I stayed at the Ebsen Cottage when we came to town for the Mother Earth News Fair and I am so happy to have discovered it. The cottage is truly a home away from home. The kitchen opens up to a nice deck to the east overlooking the back lawn and we enjoyed winding down the day back there. The heated front porch enclosure offers beautiful sunsets and views of the mountains and it is a great place for dinner or just to unwind. Yoga in front of the fire place was awesome each morning and the whole cottage gives a homey feel. The backyard is very large and it is a good place for families with children. The layout of the cottage is standard shotgun so ever room opens up to a different main room and both adult bedrooms open to a bathroom. Lots of closets too. Everything we needed was very close to us. The décor is total home charm from the quilts to the glassware. The Ebsen Cottage is very family oriented but it is also suitable for a friendly weekend get-together. Jeanette is wonderful hostess. I hope to stay again at the Ebsen cottage.
