Unique, tranquil cottage, close to downtown. Truly a 3-D piece of art.
Artist owned and designed, two story cottage sanctuary. One bedroom, w/ bathroom and full kitchen. In a quiet neighborhood, cottage is within walking distance of Haywood Road's restaurants, a five minute walk to Carrier Park that runs along the French Broad River and two miles from downtown. Cottage captures elements of Mediterranean and France. One of a kind and built last year, this space is a true retreat while visiting Asheville.
Kitchen has coffee maker, french press. The cottage has air conditioning and heating. The bedroom with a queen size bed is is upstairs along with a bathroom and shower. Off street parking is possible if that is a preference. I leave coffee and creamer for each guest.
Two cats, Rue and Ginko may wander around your entrance looking for an ear scratch and five chickens live on the south side of the property.

About Camille Cummings
I am a mother, artist and teacher. I love hosting guests from other places. Asheville is wonderful community and city. When I am not making art, I cut hair and spend time with my boyfriend who is a stone mason. I like to share what I have enjoyed for the past 15 years about this area with my visitors if they are curious.
Camille Cummings purchased this Cottage in 2013

The Mermaid Cottage was perfect. Convenient to everything, and it has great charm. We’re looking forward to coming back.
I look forward to hosting you both again. Thank you!
Stunning and awe inspiring cottage
We had an excellent stay. Everything you could need is provided. The beauty of this cottage can not be put into words. Even in pictures you can't grasp the details and charming character of the home. A must stay!!!!
Adorable cottage with a wonderful hostess
We enjoyed our stay at The Mermaid Cottage very much! It's in a quiet, quaint little neighborhood, but close to everything. Camille was an awesome hostess that made sure we had everything we needed, and she was able to help us out with local dining and brewery suggestions. The cottage was very clean and neat and had everything we needed. All of the supplies - from the bathroom towels and shower gel to the dishes in the kitchen - everything was excellent quality. Thank you for sharing your wonderful little cottage with us ... I hope my husband and I will get the chance to stay here again!
Camille has done such a lovely job on the cottage. I did not expect all of the details to be such high quality! Nothing had been overlooked on the property. Camille was even outside planting and maintaining the cutest complex in the area. The linen type sheets also made for a nice touch. Absolutely magical, thank you so much for sharing your magical place!
Thank you for appreciating the cottage! I hope to see you two again one day. Camille
Charming and comfortable
We loved our stay! The cottage is lovely and in a fun part of town. Camille was great and very responsive.
Great place to stay!
The Mermaid Cottage was the perfect place for us to stay. Plenty of room for the two of us and our dog. It had everything we needed and is walking distance to restaurants nearby. It is also walking distance to Carrier Park and our dog really appreciated that! We would definitely recommend this Cottage.
Cottage is within walking distance to Haywood Rd. restaurants and bars. It is also blocks away from Carrier Park which runs along the French Broad River. The Admiral, one of Asheville's most beloved restaurants is also blocks away. Downtown is 2 miles from cottage.
