I make sure the home is exceptionally clean, well maintained & the hot tub sparkling w/fresh water. ASK FOR MY WEBSITE FOR 50+ PHOTOS & ALL 10 OF MY ASHEVILLE & HENDERSONVILLE VACATION HOMES.

A long driveway leads to the historic Story Book Cottage with plenty of parking & a front porch w/old-time rocking chairs. Enter to a bright sunroom filled w/windows graced by elegant curtains.


An open wood beam archways joins the stylish living room & kitchen. Enjoy comfortable sofas, stately gas log fireplace, dining table & chairs, HDTV/DVD/VCR, movie library, wireless Internet, & to spoil you further, an awesome massage chair!

A breakfast bar opens the living room to a cheerful kitchen which is thoughtfully & fully equipped with quality cookware. All new maple cabinets, countertops, stainless appliances are accented by fun red Kitchen Aid cookware & accessories. You have sharp cooking knives, quality silverware, cheerful hand-painted dinnerware, coffee grinder & much more! Eat at the breakfast bar or dining table. There’s a new stainless refrigerator with French doors & bottom freezer drawer, oven (cook with gas!), microwave, dishwasher & washer/dryer set.

The BEDROOMS are tastefully furnished & have their own TV. Each room's French doors open to the peaceful 11 acre woodlands, the back deck sitting area & the 6 person hot tub. Indulge in sumptuous 400+ count sheets, plush blankets, lovely bed coverings & premium quality mattresses (king & queen). The king bedroom has a sitting area for two & the guest bedroom has a writing desk for those notes home. Pull the beautiful decorator curtains closed for a good night's sleep.

The BATHROOM features a marbleized tile floor & tub-surround, a deep Kohler jetted tub, elegant furniture vanity with marble top, one-of-a-kind mirror and lovely lighting. Dry off with plush towels provided for your use.

FOR CHILDREN, there is a fun outside playground with swings, slide, climbing wall & fort. There are toys, stuffed animals, books and games. For BABIES there is a crib with bedding, high chair, small stroller & Pack N Play.

YOU DESERVE TO BE SPOILED!: You have central heat & air conditioning to keep you comfortable for whatever season you visit. In addition, the home heats quickly with the gas log fireplace if you prefer. Throughout this comfortable, charming home are sophisticated wall colors, delightful paintings, plush throws & decorator touches of elegance. The thoughtful little extras provided will make you feel that you’re staying at a best friend’s home rather than a rental house. You will feel pampered & relaxed when you stay at this delightful home. I thoroughly love creating a beautiful place & look forward to sharing it with you! I invite you to take home blissful memories of our warm Southern hospitality.

traveler reviews for this asheville cabin rental

Guestbook Comment

Review submitted: November 24, 2007   Date of arrival: November 1, 2007

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.

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.

The way to describe Story Book Cottage is Serenity

Review submitted: November 11, 2013   Date of arrival: October 31, 2013

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.
