Guestbook comments from the owner

This is the second time we have rented Cardinal's View cottage, and we came back because it is exactly what we want in a vacation rental. The cottage is in an excellent location, in a quiet neighborhood in Black Mountain. While it is in town and in a neighborhood, it's not as if the neighbors are right on top of you. We've done the remote cabin bit, and we love that this is just as quiet, but within walking distance of downtown, and only a few minutes from the supermarket. And Black Mountain is a great base for day trips to Asheville and the surrounding area.

The cottage itself is just perfect. Everything you could want for a relaxing vacation is here. The house was spotless when we arrived. The bed was super comfy. There are plenty of towels--not one of those vacation rentals where two guests equals two towels for the week. The washer and dryer are in the basement, and I appreciated that they are full size appliances. We like to cook dinner in, and this kitchen is so well equipped. Kitchen essentials are available for guests' use as well, with the understanding that you'll restock anything you use up. So I didn't need to pack up my entire spice rack.

We absolutely love this place, and I can't see us staying anywhere else when we return to the area.

Relaxing welcoming home

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay this year at this sweet home. It is so relaxing and welcoming that a lot of time is just spent in front of the fireplace chatting with friends. Love love love this place. Well stocked kitchen and beautiful decor makes it feel like a home away from home. We will be back!

Great location and beautifully appointed

  • 5 of 5

We spent the week between Christmas and New Years at the cottage and had a wonderful time. The location was perfect for visiting Asheville , local breweries and the Biltmore. The cottage was charming and equipped with everything we could need. The gas fireplace was great for the chilly nights, and we walked a short distance to the historic downtown for shopping, music and great restaurants. This was one of the best VRBO properties we've visited and I would recommend it to anyone visiting the area.

Perfect Black Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Cardinal's View is a cozy retreat from which to explore Black Mountain.

My wife and I went for Christmas shopping and the Christmas Parade. The weather was chilly creating a great atmosphere for using the gas log fireplace in a very comfortably refurbished living room. Accent lighting, surround sound and big screen TV complimented the experience. The kitchen was also upgraded with raised marble counters, gas stove, plenty of cabinet space and more quality cooking and serving supplies than I have ever seen. The owner even added a crock pot at our request! Very accommodating.

We walked to the lake and downtown for the parade and shopping; about 10 to 15 minutes. Books are furnished highlighting restaurants and things of interest in the area. If you are a fan of Black Mountain and the surrounding area (we've gone several times over the years) you should try this cottage.

Beautiful cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautifully renovated cottage conveniently located for cafes, bars and shops in Black Mountain.

It was clean and fresh and had everything we needed including lots of guide books on the area and information of local eateries and shops. Good communication with Mike too.

Our visit was all too brief and would happily stay again if we are in the area.

Convenience and comfort!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful renovation of a sweet cottage in a convenient neighborhood - a few blocks from town and Lake Tomahawk. The property is well maintained, and the owner is responsive and cooperative. This was was a great fall get-away, and we would recommend this listing to others. We enjoyed the shopping, art and craft show, and restaurants in Black Mountain - especially Que Sera and The Red Rocker Inn.
