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.

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.

Our wonderful stay at the Story Book Cottage!
The outstanding Story Book Cottage was more than we imagined. The house was beautifully decorated by Stephanie. It was very, very clean with many extra touches that make you feel at home. The amenities were great and the house is equipped with many extra items that were helpful when traveling from a long distance. We will definitely stay at one of Robert and Stephanie's homes when we visit the Hendersonville/Asheville area in the future.

"Clean and Comfy"
My wife and I stayed here for a week leading up to an area wedding we were involved in. The thing we liked the most was how clean the place was. Spotless. Additionally, the owners were very quick to respond to our emails. We did not need to contact them for anything during our stay, but we felt confident that they would respond quickly, day or night. This was our home away from home for a week and we would not hesitate to return!

Lovely Get-away!Guest comment entered by owner
The Story Book Cottage was cozy and very clean. The beds were comfy and the linens were soothing. We all enjoyed the massage chair, the jacuzzi tub and the hot tub. The furnishings were lovely and the kitchen was well equipped. We felt we were truly staying in someone's well-cared for home. On our 1st day and we chose to do the LaZoom comedy bus tour of asheville. Augusta Wind was our host and she was a hoot and a holler (and we're from Philly, so we know about hollering). Some things you should know: alcohol is permitted on the bus and while the humor was G-rated most of the time, there were a few times when augusta veered into R-rated territory. We also went to the Biltmore Estate. We spent 2 days there, 1 in the house and 1 in the gardens. Go see the estate & take 2 days. It's huge!! My oldest daughter loved the audio tour of the house and the 14 yr old enjoyed the gardens. Other fun things we did were to go to Chimney Rock, Bat Cave, Hendersonville for some shopping and to Smiley's Flea Market. Our favorite place to eat was Mike's on Main Street for ice cream - a real soda fountain joint with yummy ice cream. (Try the praline pecan ice cream or the peppermint milkshake.) Our last event was to visit Carl Sandburg's house. The guide there was terrific and had tons of info to share. The house itself was a trip back into the 60's - there's even a 1960's box of Kleenex tissues in the living room! It was a good glimpse back into the era for our kids and brought back some memories for the adults. Overall, I'd highly recommend staying at the Story Book Cottage. The owners have done a great job making it a pleasant place to stay. They also checked in with us during the week to be sure everything was fine and we appreciated that attention as well.

A Great Place to Stay
A Great Place to Stay
We found the Cottage to be cozy and very clean. We arrived late and the owners had the lights on for us and the a/c running. There were 4 of us (2 adults, 2 daughters-20 and 14). The beds were very comfortable and linens soothing. We all enjoyed the massage chair, the jacuzzi tub and especially the hot tub. The furnishings were lovely and the kitchen was well equipped-even the dishes were upscale! We felt we were truly staying in a home. As for Hendersonville and Asheville, there is plenty to do in both areas. We thought we would take it easy on our 1st day and we chose to do the LaZoom bus tour of Asheville. It was billed as a comedy tour and it certainly was. Augusta Wind was our host and she was a hoot and a holler (and we're from Philly, so we know about hollering). A couple of things you should know: alcohol is permitted on the bus and while the humor was G-rated most of the time, there were a few times when Augusta veered into R-rated territory. If you're looking to learn about Asheville, choose something else, but if you want something fun to do with some local flavor and lots of humor, this would be it. We also went to the Biltmore Estate. We spent 2 days there, one in the house and one in the gardens. We highly recommend the trip and taking at least 2 days. It's huge!! My oldest daughter loved the audio tour of the house and the 14 yr old enjoyed the gardens - especially the fish in the Italian gardens. We went to Antler Hill Village and the farm on the 2nd day as well. If you're pressed for time, skip this part. It was fun, but not nearly as much as the house and grounds. Another adventure we took was to Chimney Rock. Two of us took the 500 some stairs to the top and the other 2 took the 27 story elevator. We all then climbed to the Opera Box for a view of Chimney Rock and surrounding areas. We also went on the hike to Hickory Nut Falls. Other fun things we did were go to Bat Cave, downtown Hendersonville for some shopping, we went to the movies and to Smiley's Flea Market. Our favorite place to eat was Mike's on Main Street for ice cream - a real soda fountain joint with yummy ice cream. (Try the praline pecan ice cream or the peppermint milkshake.) Our last event was to visit Carl Sandburg's house. The guide there was terrific and had tons of info to share. The house itself was a trip back into the 60's - Mrs. Sandburg sold the house and all of the contents to the government and only

A great place to reboot!
This cottage had everything you needed to relax & stay connected to the outside world. I have never slept so well - the beds were great. It was private, quiet & adorable. The hot tub & massage chair were top notch. The owners thought everything - from labels on light switches to an Ingles card to get a discount at the conveniently located grocery store. And the location is perfect - the town has great shopping, pubs, restaurants and is close to beautiful outdoor facilities. We will come again!

Story Book Cottage is warm, welcoming, comfortable
Our stay at this cottage was wonderful! From the well-equipped kitchen to the very comfortable beds, everything was quality. Having a washer & dryer was a bonus, as was the swing & play set for our child. Little things like the picnic cooler for packing a lunch were a plus. Directions & instructions were clear. The location is ideal as it's near a very nice grocery store & close to the delightful town of Hendersonville. The price of the cottage is very reasonable, & the owners were great!

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 take exquisite care of my properties and am available anytime to see to your needs.
