About Jennifer Mathis

My husband and I live just outside Charleston, SC with our two daughters. We love to travel and explore new places which is one of the many reasons we have fallen for Western North Carolina.

Jennifer Mathis purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Jennifer Mathis chose Asheville Area

Three and 3/4 acres backing up to hundreds of National Forest acres was the first thing that caught our attention. The second was a ramshackle house on the property that we were sure was destined for the bulldozer. After a little time and consideration, we thought it might be more interesting to give this small home a second life. With the brilliance of the nighttime sky to motivate us and the braying of nearby donkeys to make us smile, we undertook a renovation that lasted a little over a year. The end result is a gathering space that makes us want to crack open a game, pick up a guitar or read a book on the adirondack swing. We love it and hope you do too!

What makes this cottage unique

Private but close to all the things we love to do - discovering good restaurants, music, experiencing Asheville's deep arts culture, hiking...

Super convenient to Asheville and we still get to feel connected to the mountains and nature.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was a lovely house in a beautiful setting. The layout is perfect for lots of comfortable time together as a family. We will definitely come again.

One of our favorites!

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting cabins and homes through VRBO for 6 years now and this might be one of our favorite houses we have stayed in yet. The house is comfortable, has everything you need, is in a gorgeous location, and the owners were responsive and helpful. I'm only sad its already booked for our next trip.

Loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect! They provided everything you would need and more, and I honestly can't say anything bad about the place. Very cute, off the beaten path, updated appliances, and full of fun board games and movies! It was a great spot with easy access to Black Mountain and Asheville!

Great, cozy home in western North Carolina

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Little Red Casa! The house was so cute and had everything we needed for a short weekend away. The house was located in an excellent location and was only 15 minutes from downtown Asheville. The views were great and our pups loved basking in sun from the windows. We will certainly remember the Little Red Casa for our next trip to Western North Carolina.

We loved this little cabin. The kitchen was huge and well equipped. Plenty of fun games and movies. The entire house is completely new inside from top to bottom and done very well. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back if in the area.

Love! Love! Love it!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property! We were in the area for a wedding and it was nicely located between the wedding venue and downtown Asheville. Lots of hiking trails around as well. The place was as described and in beautiful condition. It was so peaceful and we really enjoyed the outside space. We had coffee on the outside deck and s'mores around the fire pit. I especially liked sitting on the bench swing looking out on the mountains. The kitchen was huge and fully stocked with utensils and such. The beds were comfortable and we appreciated having the linens and towels provided. For rainy days they have plenty of books, games, and movies to keep you occupied.. Our dogs had plenty of fun exploring the yard. The binder full of recommendations for food, attractions, etc was extremely helpful. We will definitely be returning and I would highly recommend this place - unless you want it the same time we do ;)

Privately situated at the end of a dirt road, you will fall in love with The Little Red Casa, Whether it's family time you crave or a chance to connect with friends, this sweet little place has been set up to accommodate. Completely renovated offering 2 bedrooms and 1 bath with an open floor plan that invites you to stay awhile. Hang out on the sectional and watch a movie from the growing collection,grab a book and settle in, or choose a fun board game. The house is set up to make you so comfortable you won't want to leave.

But... if you choose to venture out and explore we are conveniently located between Black Mountain and Asheville, so great restaurants, hiking, the arts and more are just a short drive away.

The mountains surrounding Swannanoa are vastly undeveloped and breathtakingly gorgeous. Treat yourself to some time well spent surrounded by Mother Nature.
