Hendersonville cabin description

All the charm of yesteryear with all the modern luxuries you've come to expect. The cottage is beautifully decorated. Cottage-style with original knotty pine walls and ceilings. Feel the stress melt away as you take time to enjoy the amenities of this wonderful cottage.

The original fieldstone fireplace equipped with gas logs becons a nap on the sofa. Or you can soak in your private hot tub on the screened porch overlooking ancient Rhododendrons and Azaleas creating an oasis of beauty. Escape to your breezy sun-porch bedroom or to the classic cozy knotty pine king bedroom, both plushly appionted with high quality Egyptian Cotton sheets. Enjoy a bubble bath in your authentic claw-foot tub. There's also over 150 satellite TV channels.

Nestled on a mountainside less than a mile from Highway 25, our cottage lets you escape the day-to-day and provide you with a memorable mountain experience. 12 minutes to Hendersonville, 25 minutes to Asheville.

The 'Ivy' cottage has a beautiful path through the azalea & ivy garden with several stairs leading to your perch on the mountainside.

Take the five minute walk to the top of the mountain for a panoramic view or walk down the road to the river to catch some trout. Exclusive Lake Summit is a three minute drive away for a day full of fun. Several amenity packages available to maximize your experience. Sleeps four to six. Cottage is Non-Smoking.

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!

'Your little red cottage is both sweet and charming. Thank you for this relaxing respite where we made some happy memories. Favorite moments included marveling at the early morning sun working magic on dewdrops and living on the screened porch. A light rain and a good book on that porch is heaven! (And oh yes, the hot tub is paradise too!)' ---The Fields Family, Atlanta, GA

'Thanks for a wonderful mountain retreat! What a treat! Asheville, the Blue Ridge Parkway and OHH the waterfalls! We enjoyed the hot tub, the porch, and the rain was perfect! The cabin is perfect. We love the ivy over the windows as well as the 1/2 door. So many beauties we don't have in Texas. We will definitely be back for fall!' ---The Taylors, Pearland, TX

'What an adorable place you have here! We were only here a short time on the way to Hilton Head, but we really enjoyed it. The decor is lovely. And, of course, we all enjoyed the hot tub! Wish we could have stayed a little longer.' ---The Grievenkamp Family, Cincinnati, OH

'Great home with lots of charm! We had a very relaxing and fun time. Sitting in the hot tub with some vino was a great time as well! We wish you the best of luck!' ---The Hepler Family, Warsaw, IN

'What a wonderful cottage! We had a great but mostly relaxing time. The hot tub was perfect! It rained the first two nights which made sitting on the porch wonderful. The girls loved all of the beautiful sites of this area, especially the waterfalls! Thank you for sharing your cottage with us.' ---The Brooks Family

'We really enjoyed everything about our little mountain trip getaway. Best part was that we had this cute, fun little cottage to come back to. We didn't even turn on the TV. The Biltmore wine we got, suited the mood perfectly once we returned back here. Thanks for such a great place to stay and making it as easy and relaxing as it needed to be.'

'Thank you so much for the Charming Ivy Cottage! We found it very comfortable. My favorite spot (other than the hot tub) was seated by the window, admiring the flowering azaleas and dogwoods. Even the morning rain was beautiful.'

I'm not even sure of the date... that's how good our experience here at the Ivy Cottage was. This was such a safe cottage for our young children. The best home-away-from home we could have asked for.'

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: Dean and I are highschool sweethearts and been together since 1981. We have 2 boys, Chris and Eli. We live here in Hendersonville after moving from Asheville a few years ago. We started Cranmore Cottages in 2005 as supplemental income to Dean's job managing a local country club.

                      Why the Owner Chose Hendersonville:
                      We fell in love with the Ivy Cottage right away. It's location was perfect.

                      Nice quiet wooded mountain setting with winter views. 15 minutes from Main Street, Hendersonville.
