Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Our family has a passion for outdoor adventure and travel. We were fortunate enough to move to the Asheville area 5 years ago for my husband's residential building business. It's a place we now call home. We spend all our free time hiking, mountain biking, camping, and simply enjoying life in the Blue Ridge Mountains with our daugther Claire and dog Murhpy. Come enjoy all we love to do at the Riverbend Cottage. We promise, you will not want to leave!

Why the Owner Chose Hot Springs:
We rented the Riverbend Cottage ourselves for many years and fell in love with the area. Located only 30 miles north of Asheville, NC where we reside, our cottage is very easy to get too yet a world away. We are thrilled to be the new owners and continue to share this very special place with others!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The Laurel River is only steps from the front porch. Fall asleep at night to the sound of the river. Hike the 7 mile round-trip Trail that follows along the river canyon. The Famous Appalachian Trail is only minutes away. Plan a family rafting adventure. Soak in the healing mineral spa at the Hot Springs Spa & Resort at the end of your fun-filled day.
