Asheville house description

Looking for a TOTALLY secluded hideaway in a mountain setting, yet minutes from the charming towns of Asheville and Weaverville? This cottage has everything you need for a romantic get-away or a home-base for exploring the beautiful Appalachian mountains. If you're an outdoor enthusiast, kayaking and mountain biking are but minutes from your front door. Want to unwind from it all? Then step out onto the deck where you can relax in your private hot tub while taking in the beautiful views. Use our home as a base from which to explore the wonderful sights, sounds and tastes of downtown Asheville. If you prefer, enjoy the provided books on the comfy sofa in the living room area, or relax upstairs in the loft/den. TV enthusiast? Enjoy the 42''FLAT SCREEN HI-DEF TV WHILE RECLINING IN THE NEW RECLINERS. With 3 acres of woods, the serenity of the area is perfect for a retreat from the routine of daily life.

We provide all the necessary amenities to make your stay as enjoyable as possible, and then some! Maps, menus, and written directions make it easy to find all the restaurants, shopping areas, and attractions you may want to take in during your visit. Games such as Scrabble and Trivial Pursuit bring fun and entertainment to the day or night. And speaking of night, enjoy a complimentary bottle of champagne while relaxing on the covered porch as you star-gaze or listen to the peaceful sounds of the French Broad River.

Our cottage is equipped with central air conditioning for the warmer days of the year, as well as ceiling fans for those times when a cool breeze would be perfect. Thanks to skylights in the loft and bathroom (yes, bathroom!), there's always a feeling of warmth and sunshine throughout.

Don't want to leave your pets behind? Then bring them with you! They'll love exploring the surrounding woods.

We know you'll come to understand and appreciate the comfort of our cottage. We truly want to make your vacation special in every way.

NOTE: PLEASE KNOW THAT THE ROAD TO THE COTTAGE IS GRAVEL. REAR-WHEEL DRIVE VEHICLES ARE NOT RECOMMENDED

                        This was a wonderful place to stay! True to the ad, you get complete privacy and it's 15 minutes to the downtown Asheville exit. The road gave me a moments pause but my Outback made it up no problem. The property was very beautiful, clean, and inviting, especially the hot tub. There was a nice book of maps, local venues, etc. Easy access to the Blue Ridge Parkway and Pisgah. And we especially enjoyed the Asheville breweries! I would definitely stay here again.

                        My wife and I had a wonderful honeymoon at this cottage. The place is kept spotless and is so inviting. And talk about secluded! The best part is you are only minutes away from anywhere you could think to go or eat and the Biltmore is a mere 20 minutes away. The owners were so helpful and courteous. They answered all the questions I had promptly and we had no surprises at all. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet getaway in the mountains. Asheville is such a beautiful town and there is so much to do. Whether you want a secluded week with your loved one, or a week full of nights out on the town and a relaxing hot tub to come home to, this is the place to stay.

We had a great time visiting the sites around Asheville. We definitely will be back around our anniversary! We loved staying here. Thank you so much for your hospitality!

                        My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time at the cabin. It was the perfect size for the two of us and our dog. The kitchen was very well stocked with all the dishes that you might need. There is a great view off the back porch. The hot tub was a great way to start or end the day. Asheville and Biltmore are within about 25 mins so there is plenty of stuff to do and the notebook in the house was very helpful. It's a great place if you are wanting to spend some quality time with your significant other. We will definitely be coming back.

                        The cottage is exactly what we wanted. It was secluded but close to Asheville. The dogs enjoyed their walks around the property. I was suprised on how well the kitchen was stocked. I cooked a lot while we were there and was able to find everything i needed. The hot tub was very enjoyable after a long day. Would stay again.

                        My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the mountainside cottage. It was worth every inch we drove up that driveway. Having that hot tub at the end of a long day exploring The Biltmore house was so worth it. Not to mention; Privacy, Full Kitchen, outdoor patio with table and chairs, gas grill, loft, living room, wi fi, Satellite TV,Super Bed and Bedding, and so much more. The drive up is a little steep, we drove up in a front wheel drive Toyota Rav4 and had no trouble. There is a nice level parking space, and again I say it was worth every inch up the side of that mountain to have such a wonderful cottage.(Like New). We definitely look forward to coming back and staying longer.

                        My husband and I loved staying at this clean and private cabin for our anniversary. It had a great view from the hot tub on the deck and was nice and quiet. Definitely need at least a front wheel drive vehicle to get up the steep road to the house, but it's manageable. We made into downtown Asheville in less than 15 min and found plenty to do. We did not bring our dog with us this time but will definitely come back with him as it has a nice yard to play in as well. I would highly recommend this cottage to other couples looking for a nice getaway close by the activities in Asheville.

                        We stayed here in July 2011. It's a beautiful house with skylights, an updated bathroom, and fantastic back porch with a relaxing hot tub. You definitely need a 4wd to get up the gravel path to the house. We have great memories of our trip and can't wait to go back!

                        My husband and I stayed at this fantastic place over Thanksgiving weekend and had a fabulous time! The owners were wonderful, communicated with us, and even accommodated our schedule after a work conflict prevented us from going on our originally planned dates. They were extremely hospitable and the house was VERY clean. We enjoyed the beautiful view as well as the hot tub on the back deck. The driveway was a little tricky to navigate with a sports car, but we appreciated the extremely detailed directions given to us by the owners. We would recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet getaway!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: Kerry is a local design/builder who put her talents to work creating Mountainside Cottage. She incorporated her love of light and simplicity to create a place that is warm and inviting. Susan lends her talents as the former owner of one of the Southeast's most successful bed and breakfasts, making sure that this cottage has everything necessary to make a traveler feel at home. Having lived in the Asheville area for 19 years, we have a deep love and respect for the natural environment as well as the cultural opportunities found in this region of the Appalachian mountains.

                      Why the Owner Chose Asheville:
                      When the 3 private acres adjacent to our 15 acres became available, we knew that would be the perfect place to build a vacation home for our extended families. As they are scattered around the world, it was important for us to offer a place that was near by, but afforded them the privacy they need and deserve. We soon realized this would also be a great place to offer as a vaction rental.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      In this busy world, this is a unique opportunity to experience TOTAL privacy. One of the things we love about the cottage is sitting on the covered deck, looking out into the woods, and listening to the sounds of nature. It's also great to drive into Weaverville, about 5 minutes away, grab a pastry or two at the world's BEST bakery, and come back and relax on the patio or in the hot tub on the deck.
