Built in 1944 and originally named the Jalowetz Cottage after the German music composer who lived there with his wife, this cottage was built as a Black Mountain College Student Project under the direction of Lawrence Kocher, a modern architect. He inspired his students to work with locally found materials, and to create space that was small in square footage yet felt spacious and inspiring. The cottage has been renovated and added onto over the years with a fantastic deck, master bedroom with jetted tub, 'migun' massage bed, gas fireplace, full kitchen and more. It is decorated with internationally themed original art and photographs.
The deck overlooks a meadow and stream that quietly babbles on its way to our private lake set on our 60+ acre property, surrounded by 360 degree mountain views.
Sequoia Cottage is nestled in a grove where the historic Black Mountain College once thrived during the '40s and '50s as one of the most important educational and artistic experiments. Buckminster Fuller built the first geodesic dome here on the property and Elbert Einstein taught here.
*Mt. Mitchell, the highest point east of the Rockies, stands tall in the distance, mountain lakes and streams welcome you, and the beauty and spirit of this place is truly relaxing and magical. While you enjoy a feeling of being far away you have the luxury of being close to so many great experiences... Black Mountain (5 minutes), Asheville (20 min), Blue Ridge Parkway, Biltmore Estate, Cherokee, and outdoor adventures abound (hikes, rafting, mountain biking, climbing, picnics, etc).

The cottage is beautiful and we enjoyed the unique decor. The setting was perfect. We are sad to leave! We have enjoyed our time in Black Mountain, and will be sure to send our friends your way. Thanks again!

We just wanted to say thank you for a lovely time this past weekend. The facilities at Lake Eden are superb and the attention to details were second to none! We are already looking forward to our next visit and can't wait to tell everyone we know about your place!
