About Susan & Keith Linthicum
We live in Fayetteville, NC and hope to retire to the beautiful mountains of North Carolina in a few more years. We began our search for a vacation home near Asheville so we could start to learn more about the area and be close to family that lives in Asheville...especially the latest addition to our wonderful family... our 3rd granddaughter!
Susan & Keith Linthicum purchased this House in 2014
Why Susan & Keith Linthicum chose Waynesville
Initially, we were looking in the Asheville/Hendersonville area, wanting to be as close to our Asheville family as we could. We spotted THE ROOST on the internet & loved the cottage look and told our real estate agent if she would drive us over we'd buy her lunch since we were certain we would buy in the Asheville area :-) We wanted her to see the style house that really caught our attention. The 30 minute drive over from Asheville was easy, the lovely neighborhood so close to the center of town, and the amazing rock retaining walls leading up to the house were all wonderful. All it took however was for us to step on the porch and look at the view of the Balsam Range of the Smokey Mountains from 3000' to know this house was the perfect home for us- you just know when you get goose bumps it's something special! And we had not even stepped inside the house yet! Once inside, it was all over - we knew this was the one! Not surprising - our guests now say the same thing :-)
What makes this House unique
So close to downtown yet with killer views! We are so centrally located to enjoy Western North Carolina outdoor activities, festivals and tons of great restaurants. Waynesville is one of the best kept secrets around!

Breathtaking views from a very cozy cottage
Words cannot express how much we enjoyed staying at The Roost over the holidays. The view from the porch was simply breath taking and the cottage was charming and cozy which made us feel right at home. We felt very welcomed with all the little touches in the home including Christmas decor and loved reading the reviews and looking at photos from past guests. It was the most relaxing vacation for us as we spent a lot of time on the patio drinking tea and enjoying the view while having silly conversations with our kids. Thanks Susan and Keith for sharing your home with us!
A wonderful getaway!
We used the Roost as a central meeting spot for Thanksgiving. It was a wonderful and comfortable environment, with two fantastic and hospitable hosts! The entire family loved the ROOST.
Girls Weekend !!
I cannot say enough how much we enjoyed our stay at The Roost. From the first request, to our checkout I have never had so much attention from a homeowner as I have with Susan! She gave us suggestions for things to do as well as places to eat, even checking in to make sure all was well during our stay! Her suggestions were spot on! Waynesville is a very friendly town and there is so much to do. The house is beautiful and the view from the porch is amazing. We spend a lot of time on the porch in the comfy chairs and on the swing. Everything we could have needed was available in the house and we were very comfortable. The yard is beautiful and we loved hearing the rooster in the yard above us each morning! Love, love the metal roof and the sound of the rain! We will be back for another visit - we have stayed at other mountain houses but this by far is our favorite!
We loved our stay at the Roost! The views were even more beautiful than pictured and the porch was just a wonderful place to pass the time, eat meals, swing, and relax. The home was lovely and clean. The kitchen was well stocked, even had a cake stand for the birthday cake I made for my mom while we were staying there. We were able to enjoy smores over the portable fire pit and our kids were delighted playing croquet in the side yard. Downtown Waynesville is only a few minutes drive away and it is just charming, we even got to attend a craft fair during our stay and came home with some fun pottery. There were some very yummy restaurants downtown too, all of which were found in the welcome book at the Roost. The hosts were so easy to communicate with and wonderful to work with. I would recommend this home to anyone, we loved our stay here and would very happily stay here during any return visits!
If people read the reviews of this place then this may sound repetitive but the view from the front porch is wonderfully breathtaking!!!! You just have to see it to believe it. The house had all the southern charm you could ask for. We will definitely be staying here again. Great house great views great owners. Very easy to communicate with and willing to do whatever it took to make your stay great. Thanks for letting us stay at your home away from home. We really enjoyed it!!!!
Thank you Mark so very much for your kind review! We are so looking forward to having you back! Have a wonderful time in NYC in November watching your daughter in the Macy's Parade :-)
The Roost is located in the beautiful Smoky Mountains of NC, just minutes from downtown Waynesville and is the midpoint between Asheville and Cherokee. Easily accessible via major highways (I-40/I-26W/US-74W/US-19/US-276) it is a perfect location to take in all that Western North Carolina has to offer from The Biltmore House & Gardens & NC Arboretum in Asheville to Cherokee with Harrah’s Casino with a full schedule of visiting musician & comedians to rafting or tubing the Nantahala or French Broad Rivers.
