Property description

The Gingerbread Cottage provides its guests with a premium mountain cottage experience only found in a restored historic property. Only the craftsmen from the 1940's could create so much charm, from the hand-made knotty pine doors to the original free-standing stone fireplace which separates the living & dining rooms, you'll enjoy it all. Now with free high-speed wireless internet!!

You can relax the day away by the fire or soak in your private hot tub under the stars. Guests can ride bikes or walk in the quite wooded neighborhood or take the five minute drive to Jump Off Rock for the most breathtaking view for miles. We're also pet friendly!

The cottage is only 15 minutes from DuPont State Forest where you will find 80 miles of trails for hiking, biking or equestrian activities. And of course the highlight of the forest, the waterfalls! With all of this outdoor activity available at your door step, it's easy to forget that the cottage is only three minutes from historic Main Street Hendersonville, where the antique & craft shopping and dining is unparalleled.

The cottage has three bedrooms & a loft area: 2 bedrooms have a queen bed, & one bedroom has two twins. The loft area has another twin bed. Enough beds to comfortably sleep 7. There is a beautiful tiled bath on the first floor with a shower/tub & another adorable half bath upstairs. Newly restored & furnished!

As always, please remember that if this cottage does not suit your needs, we have over a dozen family owned and operated cabins and cottages throughout the area. Please visit our website for complete details about Cranmore Cottages and your next vacation. We would love to have you!


'We are so relaxed! Your cottage was the most comfortable, warm, & refreshing vacation getaway we have ever been to. The accommodations in the bathroom, kitchen, & bedroom (not to mention the fabulous hot tub) were absolutely delightful. We think everyone needs a little Gingerbread in their lives.' --

'We really enjoyed our stay at your very quaint cottage. We found it to be a very good central starting point to our visits to Main Street, the Biltmore Estate, McCormack Field, and Chimney Rock. The kids really loved the upstairs beds, they felt it was like their oun little apartment. We found the whole Asheville/Hendersonville area to be breathtakingly beautiful!' ---Violet, Paul, Matthew, Jasmine, JoAnn & Augie, Palm City, FL

About the owner: Dean and Sandra have owned and operated vacation rentals in the region for the since 2006. "We have lived in Hendersonville since 2005, living the 15 years prior in Asheville.

It is located behind the cottage, open to the sky, in a small garden area under a 100 year old Maple tree- a spectacular sight in the fall and abundant shade in the summer . You will find a table, chairs and a grill in the garden for you to enjoy alfresco dining in the evenings. The back hot tub and garden area have privacy fence to ensure your complete privacy.
