Guestbook comments from the manager

I took my mom to North Carolina so she could visit her cousin. We stayed at the Story Book Cottage. It was the most relaxing week I ever spent anywhere. The cottage had everything you could possibly need plus more. The very best part was how quiet and serene it was. Not far away there was a cider mill with the best fresh cold crisp cider. The Biltmore was a short drive away. It was the perfect location to everything. I know the Story Book Cottage will see me again when I need a break from my busy life.

Wonderful place to stay. I don't think there was anything I needed that hadn't been provided! The "cottage" is decorated beautifully. We visited the Grove Park Inn just for fun, and other than the view, the "cottage" was a much better place to stay! Thanks for thinking of EVERYTHING when you furnished the house. The massage chair was a great hit with us!
We hope to stay here again.

Perfect for Evening Downtime

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed here for a week with our 20 month old son, after having spent a previous couple of weeks exploring other areas of North Carolina. It is a great location in terms of exploring surrounding areas such as Chimney Rock, Dupont State forest, Hendersonville and Asheville, but also great for staying at home as there is an Ingles around the corner and plenty of nearby good eateries.
The cottage itself is spotless, comfortable and superbly equipped if you want to eat at home, which was a great option on the days where the pull of the hot tub outweighed the desire to leave the cottage for dinner. It was great having all the baby equipment - high chair, toys, teddies, and outdoor play area to keep our little one entertained. All in all this is a great place for young families (or indeed couples) wishing to explore the area or just looking for a nice relaxing getaway.

Hiking waterfalls by day...hot tub by night

  • 5 of 5
Thank you so much for your beautiful Storybook Cottage. Everything was sparkling clean including the towels, bed linens and hot tub. Everything worked...TV's, appliances,hot tub and my husband's favorite massage chair.
I appreciate the owner checking on us to make sure we felt comfortable and could find everything that we needed.
Your central location, allowed us to explore Hendersonville, Asheville, Brevard, Flat Rock and Chimney Rock. Our favorite was the DuPont Forest and the wonderful waterfalls!
Make sure you eat at Moe's BBQ and Mezzaluna in Hendersonville. Joey's Bagels is also close by along with an Ingles grocery.

An Enchanting Stay

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I chose the Storybook Cottage for our first vacation with our 10 month old daughter specifically because of all the baby items available and we weren't disappointed! We used the pack n' play, the high chair, the umbrella stroller, and the toys each day. Our daughter loved the simple wooden blocks! It was so nice to relax in the hot tub after putting her to bed and be right outside her door if she needed anything. Even the massage chair made putting her down at night that much more enjoyable for me!
Everything in the house was top quality and there was truly everything we needed- "rag" towels to clean up messes (and with a baby, there are always messes), tupperware to store leftovers, and more movies than we could watch in a life time.
We had such a great week at the Storybook Cottage and on our vacation to Hendersonville! We can't wait to come back again some day when our daughter is older.

Truly amazing. The cottage is close to everything you could want to see. This part of the country is awesome. The mountains and waterfalls are absolutely beautiful. The cottage was a perfect stay, 5 stars all the way.

Wonderful little cottage in the woods

  • 5 of 5
We wanted a comfortable base from which to explore the Appalachians and we found everything we wanted at the Story Book Cottage.

The cottage is in a quiet residential area surrounded by woods. Although it's about 20 minutes from Asheville, we enjoyed the seclusion and didn't mind a few extra minutes of driving to the Biltmore, Blue Ridge Parkway, The Great Smoky Mountains National Park and Asheville itself.

We appreciated the comfortable amenities -- a very comfortable bed, plenty of space, a full kitchen and washer/dryer. The spa was nice as well, especially in the beautiful wooded setting. There is a supermarket just blocks away, plus a variety of small eateries nearby. Once we returned from our daily adventures, we were able to hunker down and get everything we needed just a few minutes from the cottage. The property managers are very responsive.

We couldn't have asked for more.

Amenities

From the Owner

With all the special touches, I promise you that my vacation rental homes will feel as though you are staying at a friend’s warm inviting home rather than a 'vacation rental house.' You'll appreciate the tasteful decor and thoughtful care my homes reflect. Each home has been lovingly remodeled, elegantly furnished, beautifully decorated and thoughtfully accessorized with special amenities to pamper you including massage chairs, hot tubs, high speed wireless Internet, king beds with sumptuous bedding, HDTV’s & DVD's, movie libraries, quality well-equipped kitchens, fireplaces, central heat & air conditioning, washers & dryers and much more! Unique to my homes are all the amenities offered for babies and children. There are cribs, pack-n-plays, strollers, high chairs, baby bath tubs, stuffed animals & blankies. Older children love to play on the outdoor playgrounds with forts, slides, swings, climbing walls, etc. plus games, books, toys, kids DVD movies and more. Kids of all ages love to roast marshmallow at the firepits. My homes are easily accessed, right in-town, close to grocery stores, restaurants and shopping. No winding mountain roads to get lost in or long drives to town. The homes are in peaceful, lush vacation spots where you can relax and feel at home. Rather than dealing with a third party management company with limited business hours & knowledge of a home, you can deal directly with me, the owner. I am available to you 7 days-a-week, anytime between 9 AM and 7 PM and after hours for emergencies. I know my properties intimately because I have personally had them restored, remodeled, furnished and equipped. YOU are my full time business! Because I live locally, I am available whenever you call. Email me for my web address to see all 10 of my vacation homes. Take a virtual tour at AshevilleVacationHomes.
