Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, 1.5 Baths, Family-friendly Cottage Close To Asheville Attractions.

'Your Carolina Cottage' is a kid-friendly, pet-friendly 3 bedroom, 1.5 bath home, conveniently located to everything you want to see and do in the Asheville area:

• 2 minutes to Warren Wilson College

• 5 minutes to Billy Graham Training Center (The Cove)

• 7 minutes to the entrance of the Blue Ridge Parkway

• 11 minutes to Black Mountain

• 14 minutes to Ridgecrest Conference Center

• 15 minutes to downtown Asheville

• 16 minutes to the Biltmore House

• 18 minutes to Montreat Conference Center

• 45 minutes to Chimney Rock

Our cottage, which was completed renovated in 2013, has been lovingly preserved within the same family since its inception and is full of character and history. The beautiful wood floors were hand-crafted by the owner from recovered lumber from the old Moore General Hospital, a local WWII army hospital which was subsequently torn down. The beautiful wood trim is also hand-crafted and original to the home.

The home has luxurious appointments throughout, assuring your comfort, pleasure and good night's rest:

• Two bedrooms have new memory foam mattresses

• All beds have 600-thread-count 100% cotton Hotel Collection sheets and down-alternative comforters

• 100% Micro Cotton Hotel Collection bath towels

• Wireless internet access (Wi-Fi)

• Free long-distance (U.S.) phone calls

• Flat panel TV in Living Room

• All bedrooms have flat-panel TVs

• Fully stocked kitchen with stand mixer, food processor, crock pot and more

• Vermont Castings outdoor grill

• Full selection of DVDs, kid's DVDs, games and books

The setup of the home has unique features that make it ideal for families, two couples and family get-together. There is a total dining capacity of 12: four in the kitchen, four on the porch, and the living room desk has a pull-out top with insert leaves which can seat another four persons. Unlike many rentals which advertise that they 'sleep 5' - but the fifth person only gets a sleeper sofa or futon - your fifth person has their own bedroom which adjoins the back bedroom. Our back bedroom has its own entrance, making it perfect for two couples where each may want their own schedule or privacy.

• Master Bedroom - Queen bed with new memory foam mattress

• Second Bedroom - Twin bed with new memory foam mattress

• Third Bedroom - (2) Twin beds with firm innerspring mattresses

We want all members of your family to be comfortable here, so we provide a strap-on highchair, baby bathtub and sleeping travel crib for your youngest member; and our cottage accepts well-trained dogs (limit two) with separate pet deposit.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great fish & chips meal at Wicked Weed in town. We loved our time outdoors. Lake Lure and its playground splash pad was a surprise hit for all. Our 4 yr.old loved Chimney Park. He also caught his first fish while here. House was well stocked and perfect for our little family. We played and played in the yard and enjoyed dining "al fresco" on the side porch every morning. We appreciated the notes on where to find (everything). What a great deal!"

Very nice, well-equipped house

  • 4 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay at the Carolina Cottage. The house was very clean and comfortable. The kitchen was incredibly well equipped. The beds were comfortable and cozy. We had everything we needed for our stay.

The only down-side was the busy road. It was kind of scary backing out of the driveway and we were uncomfortable walking along the road with cars speeding by.

Overall we had a great stay.

Location and Home was sweet and cozy

  • 3 of 5

My kids and I enjoyed our stay at the cottage, but the appliances are a little out of date. Microwave almost caught on fire and the stove is way out of date for cooking and baking.

Great value, great location

  • 5 of 5

This place was a great value and the location to Biltmore, Downtown Asheville, and the Blue Ridge Parkway was excellent. The house was very clean (met my wife's stringent standards). We loved that we were able to bring our dog. Two things I would point out (these do not lower my 5 star rating) are: 1. It is on a road which is surprisingly loud and busy early in the morning, and 2. The third bedroom is accessed by going through the second bedroom. Overall I was very happy and will stay there again if I am in the area.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay!

Close enough to all of asheville yet far enough out to feel secluded in a quaint little town. This house has everything you would have at home. Every kitchen amenity you can think of, comfortable beds and super clean!

We loved our stay!

Relaxing and quiet

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at the cottage while visiting the Asheville area. The 2 lane country road there had beautiful mountain scenery. It was convenient and economical to have coffe and breakfast at the house each morning, and dinner there in the evening, after exploring Asheville during the day, and then going to sleep with the sound of crickets at night - ahhh.

Wonderful and clean cottage! Great for a family with children.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was everything that we expected. It was clean, cozy and just the right size for a family of five. It is very close to downtown Asheville and any activities around the Asheville area. We would definitely stay there again!
