Asheville Area Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)

This quaint little bungalow and is perfect for a get-away, family vacation, or retreat. Nestled in the town of Black Mountain, called the 'front porch of the Blue Ridge Mountains,' our Lake Tomahawk Bungalow allows you to experience the loveliness, peace and quiet of a small town. Conveniently located to a treasure load of local attractions and majestic views.

The bungalow itself is located just one walking block from Lake Tomahawk which features a walking path all around the lake where you can feed the ducks, watch children play in the playground, view sculpture strategically placed along the path or bring a blanket and a picnic dinner and sit on the lawn for the Lake Tomahawk summer series Thursday night concerts.

If relaxation and rest is your objective, settle into our comfy deck chairs with a good book and a tall glass of ice tea or a cold drink and let the rest of your crew walk across the street and play tennis. You have a great view of the courts from the deck so you can relax and still monitor their play safely.

Downtown Black Mountain offers many quaint shops for purchasing clothing, kitchen knick-knacks, antiques, specialty items, children toys and more. There are many restaurants to choose from including wood-fired pizza and fresh pasta, Thai, sushi, authentic Mexican, local delis and a chocolate shop. The surrounding areas boast hiking, walking/running and mountain bike trails. Check out Montreat College's campus for easy to difficult climbs including the Lookout Trail which boasts a 360 degree view of the Swannanoa Valley.

The Lake Tomahawk Bungalow is located only 15 minutes from downtown Asheville where you will find all the amenities of a progressive big city including cinemas, 36 art museums, shopping, dining, and more. Asheville is home of the Vanderbilt family's historic Biltmore House with thousands of acres of wooded and landscaped grounds, a winery and restaurants, stables where you can rent horses, as well as the tour of the home. You may also want to get a day-spa ticket to the historic Grove Park Inn and Country Club, where many presidents and dignitaries have stayed when visiting the area.

In short, the Lake Tomahawk Cottage offers a great alternative to hotel rooms, with a full kitchen stocked with all the supplies you need including basic spices, oil and condiments. The living room is furnished with comfortable couches and chairs, high speed internet and wireless, and a wide-screen TV. The two bedrooms have queen sized beds in them in the cottage, sleeping 4. All linens and towels are provided as well as a hair dryer, iron, ironing board and complimentary soaps and shampoos.

Located right across the street from tennis courts and one block walk from Lake Tomahawk. Lake Tomahawk is a small lake with a walking path all the way around it, kid friendly playground, sculptures, a summer outdoor concert series and a public swimming pool. The total amount on Homeaway does not factor in housekeeping fee and NC state tax.

A Happy Place!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! 2 Adults and one teenager... We had a friend close by and town is close by so the location was great! I walked down to Lake Tomahawk every morning to walk and pet dogs :). The cottage itself is cute as a speckled pup! Very clean, light and airy... Homey decor... It felt like we just lived there. I talked with Patty and Randall during my visit and they were such gracious hosts. I hope to visit with my husband on another trip and stay here again!

Enjoyable Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife, daughter, and son all enjoyed our stay at this cottage. The cottage was very clean and had all the amenities we needed. The owners were kind and hospitable - making sure we had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. Lake Tomahawk was very close by and we enjoyed the beautiful scenic views the walk around the lake offered. And the kids enjoyed some playtime at the playground at the lake. The cottage location was peaceful and was close to activities we had planned in the Asheville area.

Thanks for the enjoyable stay!

Great getaway for girls weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second visit to this charming cottage and it did not disappoint! The cottage is located just steps from Lake Tomahawk and super close to downtown Black Mountain. The owners are so welcoming and helpful and they make you feel completely at home.

It is a cottage that is great for romantic couples vacation, girls getaway, or for even elderly folks that want a place that they can manage or maneuver around easily. I will be back!

clean, comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

My elderly mom and I stayed here. We had a wonderful time. The home was very clean and perfect for my mom who can't walk up stairs. It is conveniently situated and we felt very safe. The DVD system was confusing but the owner's son came over and helped us out and said he'd type out clear directions for the next guest so I'm sure we were the last ones to be confused :-) The owner responded quickly to all calls and was very kind. Mom and I plan to return.

Wonderful Quietness!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a wedding at Lake Tomahawk. The bungalow is within walking distance. It is beautifully renovated inside and even though the bedrooms are on the street, it was super quiet overnight. We fished at the lake, enjoyed our friend's wedding at the Lake Clubhouse, and even met the owners who were super nice folk. The owner's brother has an excellent pizza place in town that was so good, we went twice in our short stay. I would definitely recommend this property AND the area! Will definitely come back here!

Even better than the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't have been happier with this cozy cottage! It was immaculately clean, beautifully furnished, and the location was perfect. Lake Tomahawk is idyllic and just a stone's throw away, and Black Mountain is within easy walking distance, and yet the property felt quiet and secluded. The kitchen was fully stocked but there were too many good eating options in Black Mountain to eat in! Patty (the owner) is extremely nice, accommodating, and easy to reach. I will definitely be back!
