Abbey Ridge Retreat is a 1700 square foot red brick one level cottage with all amenities available year round for weekends or longer visits. Our view is the central attraction of this seasonal rental. It’s always spectacular, but at sunset the sky can display colors even an artist would have problems capturing as it changes from moment to moment. If you enjoy a vigorous walk for exercise it’s exactly 1 1/2 miles round trip from the top to the main road. The house features motion sensor lights on all sides to light your way and ambiance lighting using solar lights on the front entrance walkway and the rear of the property to light your way and set the mood. Enjoying a gas log fire inside or just sitting in near darkness on the deck watching for shooting stars on clear summer evenings with a suitable beverage and agreeable company is a Master Card 'Priceless' moment. This quiet abode is ideal for romance as there is complete privacy on our cul de sac.
Whatever outdoor activity, attraction, entertainment, restaurants or shopping interests you in WNC it’s easily available within a 10-60 minute drive. To learn what’s happening locally call the Henderson County Tourist Bureau at 800-828-4244 or visit them on 201 South Main Street in Hendersonville. The house has great cell reception and a WiFi network. There is fully equipped kitchen & fridge with ice maker.
Abbey Ridge is located 5 miles west of Hendersonville on Hwy 64 West in the Horseshoe/Mills River Communities. There is easy access to the property via a paved two lane road, but winter visitors should be advised snow and ice are frequent visitors from November thru March. We recommend “four” or “all wheel drive” vehicles for a winter visit. At least one guest must be 25 years of age unless all guests are 21 years of age or older. Owner will discuss an exception for each rental period.
Abbey Ridge is on one level making it accessible for wheel chairs though assistance may be needed. The property is in a virtual mountain forest with Oak, Pine, Cedar and Maple trees, but close in there is a grass lawn with Mountain Laurel and Azaleas for greenery. There is wildlife with turkey, squirrels, raccoons, opossum, deer, humming birds and there are stories of bear sightings. There are “once in awhile mosquitoes“ spiders and reptiles so watch where you walk or put your hands.
The Abbess, Lady Margaret from England will greet you as you enter. Her likeness was made from rubbing the brass cover that has graced her tomb for 500 years. She is your hostess in spirit as she bids you welcome as in olden days when abbeys were required to put up travelers and provide a simple supper. I, like the Abbess, bid you welcome as we both say, “Peace be unto you.” We hope to see you on the ridge.
