About the property

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 8-10 Sleeps

Experience treetop living in our mountain cottage just off the highway connecting Asheville, Hendersonville and Brevard! It is the ideal Base Camp to explore the mountains, the trails as well as Asheville and the Biltmore Estate twenty minutes away. In the summer you can fly fish, mountain bike and hike in Pisgah National Forest or hear classical music at Brevard Music Center. Try the brews at Sierra Nevada Brewery or Oskar Blues.

A three night minimum stay is required.

This four bedroom two bath cottage is nestled in the deep woods at an elevation of 2900 feet. A well-maintained gravel road leads to the house. It sleeps eight comfortably - more if you use a sofa bed. The main level includes a living room, kitchen, shared bathroom, two bedrooms, den and porch.

The two master suite are downstairs and each features a king-sized bed. A small room at the base of the stairs could be just right for a card game. The washer and dryer are located on the lower level.

Enjoy your meals inside at a table seating four or dine outside at a large table on the fabulous 55 x 15 foot covered porch. Twinkle lights along the railing makes for a magical dinner party.

No wifi but there is basic cable. There is plenty of parking space for cars, bikes and gear. Feel free to use the portable fire pit outside to roast marshmallows. Owner has a supply of firewood and starter logs for you to use.

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this home over Christmas for our extended family of eight. The owners have thought of everything and we felt very welcomed with all the personal touches. There were even holiday decorations (to include Christmas trees!) inside and out, making it feel even more like home. It has plenty of space to spread out but is also cozy enough to enjoy spending time together. This was our first VRBO vacation and it was even better than we hoped for. Overall, an excellent experience.

We had a wonderful stay!! It was just perfect!!! We have little ones, and the house was set up perfect for our needs. We had so much room!! We could put the little ones to bed and the adults could enjoy playing cards and games without waking the kidos. The two king size bedrooms, were king size. The covered deck was my favorite part of the house with the king size table. The location is perfect also! Hiking and Breweries, very close. There are three towns close by. We only had a chance to visit one, but cannot wait to return to do more exploring! We have rebooked for next year. This is a gem!!
