Asheville house description

The perfect romantic getaway for two, Blackberry Cottage at Reems Creek, is nestled in a small community midway up Snowball Mountain. As you make the drive, while the road follows Reems Creek and bridges cross it, notice a wonderful feeling of peace and tranquility. It is a truly magical setting in which to relax, unwind and breathe in all the beauty of nature.

Upon your arrival at the cottage you will delight in perennials, raspberries, apples, a small stream in back and the cascading headwaters of Reems Creek across the road. You are just upstream from trout stocked waters and surrounded by creeks, streams, waterfalls, mountains and lush trees. Some of the best hiking and nature strolls are right outside your door! Waterfalls await in either direction, yet you are only 10 to 20 minutes from dining, activities and shopping.

As you enter the cottage you will sense a cozy, joyful retreat from the hectic pace of life. From the warm tan walls, to the inviting hardwood floors and comfortable furnishings you will find lots of reasons to feel welcome here. All you need to bring is food, clothing and toiletries (although there is a small basket of shampoo, deodorant, etc. should you forget anything.)

An open living area features a 37' LCD TV with DISH Network, a VCR/DVD player with theater sound and a CD player. You will find a collection of movies and music for entertainment. A comfy reading chair awaits your favorite books. The quiet Hunter ceiling fan and gas log stove enhance your comfort and enjoyment.

A large bedroom, with a romantic atmosphere, features a spacious closet, a vanity table with lighted make-up mirror, a quiet Hunter ceiling fan and a chair for reading or relaxing. Slumber in the plush comfort of your Simmons Beautyrest KING size bed. Luxurious 100% cotton sheets, a selection of pillows (soft, firm and contour memory foam), as well as soft blankets and comforters, ensure a restful night’s sleep!

After a day of fun and exploration, you may want to unwind in the comfortable chairs on the covered porch or relax in the backyard by a small stream enjoying a fire in the firepit or a nice soak in the hot tub. Either way, you will enjoy the woodsy setting in a mountain atmosphere.

                          Year Purchased: 2013

                          About the owner: I am a kindergarten teacher in Asheville, NC and just purchased Blackberry Cottage! I was the maid for Blackberry Cottage for 6 years before I purchased the property!

                          Why the Owner Chose Asheville:
                          I helped my dad take care of his rentals properties my whole life and became the maid for Blackberry Cottage 7 years ago. When the previous owner decided to sell, I couldn't let the Cottage go!
