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.

The way to describe Story Book Cottage is Serenity
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.

Great place to stay!
What a wonderful cottage. Very well appointed. Stephanie has provided everything you could want down to a backpack and picnic basket. The cottage was immaculate. As soon as I walked in, I felt at home. The back of the cottage overlooks the woods with many trails which my dog loved. Quiet neighborhood. The cottage feels secluded yet close to everything. I definitely recommend the Story Book Cottage. You won't be disappointed.

Cozy, clean and comfortable!
This is a lovely home. Very cozy. When we stay at a vacation rental, my husband is always concerned about cleanliness and bedbugs, all sorts of bugs--This home was very clean with no bugs or bedbugs! No pests of any kind! (Yippee!) It is obvious that Stephanie cares about this home and that she takes good care of it! It is in a lovely quiet and peaceful area, with great access to grocery stores and to Hendersonville and Asheville. I would highly recommend it to anyone. The service was great. We arrived late and Stephanie made sure the lights were on and everything was ready for us. Thanks Stephanie!

Loved Story Book Cottage!
Story Book Cottage is a lovely, extremely comfortable and well maintained home. It is so well equipped that there wasn't a single thing we lacked during our week there. We were very happy with the location and felt that we received great value for our money. Also, even though we didn't need anything that hadn't been provided, Stephanie was a phone call away if we had. We definitely hope to return in the future.

Wonderful little cottage in the woods
Wonderful little cottage in the woods
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.

Story Book is Dreamy!
My husband and I stayed at Story Book Cottage from 5/28-6/01/13 and had a wonderful experience. We both loved the decor and attention to detail in every aspect of the cottage. Everything one could possibly need for a perfect stay was provided. The kitchen was not only stocked with every piece of kitchenware you could conceivably need but it was also color coordinated! Our poodle Buddy also loved the place. He felt completely at home there. We did not have any two legged children with us, but if we had they would have been entertained with toys, videos, games and a playset outside. There is also a grocery store and park within minutes of the cottage. If you are looking for a relaxing adventure in N.C. this is the place to stay! -

Once Upon a TimeGuest comment entered by owner
Once Upon a Time
Once upon a time, my daughter and I traveled to the most delightful story book cottage! Everything was just perfect from the cobblestone driveway, to the interior decor, massage chair, fireplace, beautiful bedrooms and the hot tub! We loved everything! It was obvious that the owners are serious about spoiling their guests! I haven't been this relaxed in a very long time, and even my teenage daughter relaxed which is rare with a teenage daughter! We loved the cottage so much that we really didn't want to leave it even for a minute. When we were able to pull ourselves away from the cottage, we had a blast exploring the area. We went to the waterfalls, the Moonshine Snowtubing park, and to downtown asheville. We truly had one of the best vacations ever. I can't recommend this beautiful cottage highly enough. Stephanie was such a kind person to deal with, and she really thought of everything she could to make our stay as great as it possibly could be. Thank you so much! We can't wait to come back!

Can't wait to return!
What a wonderful long weekend escape. Upon entering story book cottage any concerns were left at the door. So clean, cozy, comfortable and well decorated. Wonderful kitchen with anything you could be looking for. After busy days exploring, we fell into the ultra comfortable beds at night. Great meeting location with family from Nashville, TN. We all left agreeing that next time we will spend more of our time at the Story Book Cottage. Thanks so much for sharing your little piece of heaven with us.

About the owner: I am Stephanie Joy Johnson, owner of Asheville Vacation Homes. My passion is creating beauty in real estate….remodeling/restoring homes, landscape design, interior home décor and, best of all, making guests feel pampered when they stay at my luxury vacation homes in the gorgeous mountains of Western North Carolina. I devote myself full-time to taking care of my homes & guests. YOU are my full-time business! I began this business in 2004 and delight in finding beautiful locations and gorgeous homes for vacation rental settings. I am always searching for interesting furnishings (shopping!) to add to the delightful decor for my guests. During your stay, you also might meet my awesome property manager and “fix-it man,” David. He can take care of any maintenance or property issues should they arise. He and I are both available 7-days-a-week to make sure your stay is the best ever! Email me for my web address to see all 9 of my vacation homes. Take a virtual tour at AshevilleVacationHomes.
Why the Owner Chose Asheville:
I am passionate about living in these awesome Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina and adore sharing my vacation rental homes with guests who come to experience our area’s mountains & towns. I take exquisite care of my properties and am available anytime to see to your needs. I make sure each home is exceptionally clean, meticulously well-maintained and the hot tub sparkling with fresh water. I have lived in Asheville, North Carolina for many years and find great joy in discovering more and more reasons why this is the BEST PLACE IN THE WORLD TO LIVE! Asheville is consistently in the “Top 10 Places To Live” according to almost any criterion published! It’s a diverse multi-cultural blend of mountain folk and cosmopolitan society set in a dramatically beautiful mountain setting. It is my heart-felt desire to provide gorgeous welcoming homes in spectacular settings and to share this town with you!
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
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!

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!
