Asheville Area Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 5

Tucked away on the side of a hill on a lovely, quiet tree-filled dead-end street in West Asheville, our cheerful and cozy home away from home awaits you.

Newly renovated, the Red Cottage features a fully equipped kitchen with butcher block counters, a brand new ceramic tiled bathroom, hardwood and bamboo floors (with radiant floor heating to keep our winter guests cozy), two air-conditioned bedrooms, one with a queen bed and one with a double and a twin bed (all with patchwork quilts). We have WiFi, cable, and two TVs, one with a DVD player. Enjoy a barbecue out on the deck, or just relax and enjoy the views.

With all the amenities of home, you're sure to enjoy all that Asheville and the surrounding area has to offer. It’s just a short drive to the heart of trendy West Asheville, 10 minutes to downtown and the River Arts District, 15 minutes to the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Biltmore Estate.

My family and I were looking for a place to stay for a month during a hospital rotation. We loved the red cottage! The space is beautiful, very well organized and clean. It had everything we needed to make it our temporary home. Myra and Tom were amazingly helpful in finding local resources when an unexpected event occurred (car broke down out of town) and were always quick to respond to any questions. I can't say enough positive things about this place and the owners!

Fantastic Fall Break

Our second stay at the Red Cottage was just as fabulous as the first. Perfect location for us and our little, fur pup. Highly recommendable.

Very good experience

  • 5 of 5

Me and my daughters stayed at the " Little Red Cottage " for the better part of August. We found the cottage, clean , comfortable and very peaceful. It's only 15 minutes or so from downtown and close to the mountains and many other attractions. Should we return to Asheville we will certainly try to stay here again.

Perfect Place!

  • 5 of 5

The house and location are wonderful. I loved the lushness of the area. It's close to everything. They were very helpful and accommodating, as our stay was extended a couple times. We were waiting to close on our house, having relocated from Denver, so it was wonderful to have a place to call "home" for a while. We also had an escape attempt by our dog and Meredith (the groundskeeper) was there to save the day! Overall wonderful experience and good representation of why we chose Asheville for our new home.

Wonderful stay in Asheville!

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage was perfect for us! Close to Asheville, but still peaceful and quiet. This little two-bedroom cottage had everything we needed to make our week in Asheville perfect. We found everything we needed in the kitchen. The house was clean and the beds were very comfortable. We would DEFINITELY stay here again when in Asheville.
