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.

We love our family home! Love was built into every slat of the wood floor, every crown molding. We know you'll love it too.

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!"

Home away from home

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!

The house was cozy and clean, everything we hoped for

  • 5 of 5

Everything was wonderful and worked with all five of us that stayed in the house. All the beds were clean and comfy. The kitchen had all the appliances we needed. And the bathrooms were very clean. The owner insured our stay was great! I would highly recommend this property for anyone who wants to stay away from the city crowds yet be so close to everything. I would definitely rent this house again.

Could be titled "Thoughtful Cottage"

  • 5 of 5

This is by far the best rental experience we've ever had. Everything about this house makes it clear that the owner and management have made the guest experience their highest priority.

I was so pleased to discover how clean the cottage was upon arrival. I brought a trunk full of cleaning supplies because I know, from past experience, that my definition of clean is a little more particular than the average traveler. I didn't need any of it. There wasn't a speck of dirt or grime to be found. Truly. Folks, not even under the beds, or on the windowsills. . . . Even the air vents were clean. I am thoroughly impressed.

The kitchen is comprehensively stocked. You'll be able to cook here and you won't be afraid to use any dishes from the cabinets, because EVERYTHING is clean. We didn't want for anything while here. We found every thing we needed in the cottage, even an extension cord. Thank you so much for the thoughtful consideration you put into supplying this guest house.

The location was ideal for us, half-way between Asheville and Black Mountain. Close to an excellent grocery store. Peaceful and tranquil, mountain views. Just perfect.

The house was ideal for our family of three. I think a larger family would be very comfortable here, you'll just have to take turns showering in the one bathroom. There is an extra commode in the laundry room for emergencies. Speaking of the laundry room, there was stand with laundry supplies. So, very, thoughtful!

I appreciate the owner allowing us to bring our little Havanese dog. You won't find any onerous pet smells here, however. Only well-trained dogs are accepted and must stay on the floor. This is the most pet-friendly area I have ever toured. Our dog was permitted EVERYWHERE we went.

While this may not be the most important thing to you, the fact that the house is so charmingly decorated definitely contributed to my sense of joy in being here. Simply put, it's adorable. The refurbished hardwoods, sunny windows, tasteful quality furniture, made me smile instantly. There are so many nice touches throughout the home like abundant mirrors and dressing tables for ease in getting ready.

You know you hit the jackpot when you don't leave without checking the rental calendar to plan a return visit. And this area? I would move here in a heartbeat. The scenery, the architecture, the abundant artists, the friendly locals. Quite possibly my favorite place on earth!
