Asheville cottage description

The Willow Cottage is one of only two beautiful cottages on Cold Mountain's 200 Riverfront Acres.... This page features The Willow, but if your dates are taken for The Willow Cottage, please be sure to check the availability of VRBO Listing 355657 or simply email or call us. You can reserve this cottage on line by going to our website: Thank you!


Just take a look at the pictures...the cottage was designed by renowned architect Keith Summerour and the idea was to take the very finest elements of luxury homebuilding and scale them down to an enjoyable, sensible size of 2300 feet. In the indoors, we wanted guests to be able to enjoy the very best materials, craftsmanship and design--understated elegance. The exterior features locally harvested stone, cedar siding, and unbelievable Ludowici clay tile roofing. Guests will feel at once that they are stepping back in time to an era when craftsmanship and materials still mattered, and stepping forward into the future with flatscreens wired with digital cable, GoogleTV and unlimited on-demand Netflix.

The kitchen, dining and living areas are fully integrated with an all-stone terrace complete with wood burning fireplace and antique timber-framed porch. The kitchen features plaster walls, beautiful views, a Wolf range, two Subzero refrigerators, soapstone countertops and custom cabinets.

The Willow Cottage is one of two cottages located within the private, gated riverfront conservation community called Cold Mountain. The clear waters of the East Fork River run through the property, and our guests have access to 1/2 mile of it. With your reservation you will receive a complimentary one hour fly fishing lesson. The 200 acres features the river which is within 300 feet of the cottage. The cottage is located in the heart of the meadow area of Cold Mountain and is within 100 feet of an historic dairy barn (no animals today). A private activity field for soccer, volleyball or chasing fireflies is 100 feet away as is an apple orchard, small vineyard and raspberry and blackberry patches. (Great for the morning's cereal.) The upper 1/3 of Cold Mountain is very mountainous and guests can hike, mountain bike, ride horses, camp or picnic at 4,000 feet if they wish.

You will need to carefully consider the town that is close by. If you haven't discovered Waynesville, do yourself a favor and check it out. This year, no less a source than the L.A. Times called Waynesville 'the perfect blend of mountain charm and sophistication.' Art galleries, tailgate markets, incredible wine store (Wineseller) just 15 minutes away. Want to take advantage of something in Asheville--35 minutes away. We love Asheville too, but the truth is it is a city, which is what we believe a lot of people are seeking to escape. Stay in the country, use Waynesville as your anchor town and cherry-pick the best of Asheville's offerings. Now, you are 35 minutes away from Asheville and 15 minutes from Waynesville, but that gives you the payoff of a spectacularly beautiful, riverfront setting. Plus, you are in the direction of something... Pisgah National Forest begins just 5 minutes south of the property and leads you into some of the most beautiful and iconic places in the Eastern US--Sliding Rock, Mount Pisgah Inn, Looking Glass Falls and many more are within 20 minutes for a truly unlimited amount of recreational potential. Finally, Springdale Golf Club (18 holes) is directly across the street for any family members wishing to keep a swing sharp.

We built and furnished the Willow Cottage because we were generally disappointed with the quality of both the homes and properties available for vacation rental. Also, being flatlanders from Hilton Head, we had grown tired of those terribly steep properties that have nice views, but nothing to do. The Willow Cottage at Cold Mountain is an absolutely unique offering in Western North Carolina with views, water and lots of room to roam... thank you for taking a moment to consider us. We look forward to hearing from you.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2010

                          About the owner: The Willow Cottage is owned by two families, one from Hilton Head and the other from Santa Fe, who came together to create a vacation offering that they had always sought, but seldom found: sufficient beauty, warmth and luxury to restore the adults, but lots of room-to-roam onsite in free pursuit of adventure for kids (and kids at-heart) so that they must be called-in from outside.

                          Why the Owner Chose Asheville:
                          We chose Cold Mountain and the Cruso Valley as the location for the Willow Cottage because it is the perfect balance between country and city living. Any closer to Asheville, and we were not getting our “River Runs Through It” fix; any farther from Asheville felt a little too “Deliverance” or required traversing winding, nauseous roads. Also, being from two popular tourist destinations—Hilton Head and Santa Fe—we wanted a mountain experience that felt like a genuine getaway, rather than a duplication of our country club environs back home or, worse, the contrived resort-town experience.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          The stage is set for you to create your own experiences. Grab one of our flyrods and wade the river, or a Zebco instead and help a child catch a first fish in the pond. Work with a local chef for a catered dinner on the sunset knoll or pack pimento cheese sandwiches to eat riverside. Tube the river or read a novel start-to-finish in the hammock under the birches with the river flowing alongside. Risotto and your favorite red at The Chef’s Table in Waynesville, or hamburger, fries and a chocolate malt at Jukebox Junction in Cruso. The list goes on and on and we are available to give you as much help as you like in planning activities for a long-remembered mountain vacation.
