It's not too good to be true, we really are on a 136 acre privately owned mountainside farm among a forest of trees and wilderness! Residing on 10 private acres, within the 136 acre farm is the cottage and my home, 1/2 mile up the mountain from the main road [NO ONE CAN SEE THE PROPERTY FROM THE MAIN ROAD], with 2 of those acres between the cottage and my private residence. If you need anything, I'm here to help. Pictures cannot convey how in reality this cottage lives or feels. The hot tub, on-site hiking, beauty of the mountain wilderness, covered front deck, convenient home-like extras, loads of incredibly interesting wilderness property to explore and private property located out-of-sight of the main road ... this place just can't be beat! There are a lot of wonderful places to have a vacation rental, but Newfound Cottage is situated to be called 'among the best'. To experience nature in the quiet and calm of a mountainside setting is a luxury some never get to experience. I've been told I could charge more for such a place simply because of the peace 'n quiet, beauty, so much privately owned property, along with my efforts extended into the decor and provisions, but the rates charged reflect the 1400 sq. ft. size of the cottage, while still offering 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, hot tub, WiFi and hiking! Yes, this is the 'cottage in the mountains' you've been looking for!

'What to do & where to eat' information ..........
Dare I say, the information I provide may surpass most vacation rentals in how much, how diverse, and how specific. I have taken great strides in providing you with 'what to do' with attraction brochures and information I've gathered on my own. It spans the gamete from nearby ice cream stands (get some ice cream on your way back from downtown at the oldest ice cream shop in Asheville!), directions of prominent downtown and area restaurants (with food descriptions) as well as local and area attractions brochures. I can also tell you about our new stable for boarding your horse and beautiful mountain trail ride! One never knows what someone else visiting may be interested in doing. So when you stay at Newfound Cottage you won't be asking 'what is there to do? And it's always best coming from a local!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: My husband and I have been married since 1990 and have had rentals since 1993. We're big DIYers. I am an artist by nature so interior decorating comes natural to me. My husband has artistic skills and abilities too but prefers building things. We built our cottage ourselves over a 3 yr. period, every weekend and holiday, and our own money. Vacation rentals suit me for being able to earn income from home while keeping myself available for my elementary school-age son, having time for family/school activities as well as be able to clean and maintain my vacation rentals to my high standards.

Why the Owner Chose Asheville:
The community of Newfound in Leicester is a farming community. Since we loved the area enough to build our dream home here, we knew our guests would appreciate a home-away-from-home in a true country setting. Perfect location being 5.7 miles from the interstate, 20 minutes from downtown and only 25 minutes to the Biltmore Estate. That's a whole lot less driving than most commute to work! So you get to enjoy time "vacationing" instead of driving. It's the best of both worlds.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Relaxing in the mountain setting with lightning bugs and tree frogs at night and song birds during the day, onsite hiking, being in a well maintained clean house, beautifully decorated, minutes from major attractions, but having satellite TV, magazines, games and DVDs in case you prefer to simply relax at the house.
