Property description

The Wisteria Cottage is conveniently located 10 minutes North of Downtown Asheville, in the small quaint town of Weaverville. An easy drive to the Biltmore Estate, Grove Park Inn and Spa and the Blue Ridge Parkway (15 minutes to all these locations). For a real treat, head 25 minutes down the road to Hot Springs, North Carolina for a long and glorious soak in the natural mineral springs located on the banks of the French Broad River.

Relax and enjoy the colorful gardens and artistic custom-made features of the Wisteria Cottage. Super comfortable pillow top Queen. Fully-equipped kitchen to prepare your favorite meal. Eat out on the private patio surrounded by mosaic art designed into the base of the cottage, or choose from one of the many local restaurants only minutes from home.

The Cottage was built by French artists using recycled materials. It is truly a unique and eclectic one of a kind space. Custom touches include a stunning mosaic bath, mosaic kitchen counters and custom stenciled floors. The cottage vaulted ceilings make the space light and bright when the velvet curtains are open, and romantic and cozy when drawn. One long-time customer refers to the cottage as 'Velvet Therapy' for all the peace and tranquility it brings to her. Make this your romantic get-away for two, or for a small family looking to explore Asheville. Well-behaved pets are welcome with some conditions. Fenced area for your pet out the back door. All you need to bring with you are your clothes, food and your adventurous spirit. Everything else is included!

The twin bed is located in a small den, and is walked through to get to the bathroom. The cottage is most suited to one couple looking for a romantic getaway close to all that Asheville has to offer, or a couple with children. I have had a couple with a parent stay also, who slept in the twin bed. It is not a suitable set up for two couples to be comfortable. ...moreless
