From bustling downtown Asheville, drive 5 min. through the Beaucatcher Mtn. Tunnel into pastoral Chunns Cove (between Town Mtn. Rd. and the Blue Ridge Parkway) to find Woodhaven, a cottage nestled amongst the trees on the side of the mountain.
In its own forest, micro-climate Woodhaven Cottages offers wildflowers in the spring, flowering mountain laurel & rhododendron, wild blueberries in the summer, and gorgeous foliage in the fall; this is a quiet retreat for 1-5 persons.
The gated deck and a screened-in porch wrap around on three sides and provides a tree house "feel" to the cottage. After a day of sight-seeing,hiking, mountain-biking or white-water, enjoy relaxing in the hot tub on the deck or rocking on the screened-in porch. Pick up dinner at one of the nearby Tunnel Road restaurants or have it delivered if you're not in the mood to cook.
Centrally-located to all of Western North Carolina, day trips are easily planned to Chimney Rock Park/Lake Lure, Biltmore House, the N.C. Arboretum, Smoky Mountain National Park, Mount Mitchell, Mount Pisgah, Sliding Rock, Banner Elk, and Grandfather Mountain. Asheville, Hendersonville, Black Mountain and other small towns provide ample shopping excursions. (Dancing Bear Toys, a specialty toy store & our family business is five minutes away and welcomes playful folks of all ages!)

The cottage has available maps, bird books, brochures, and personalized suggestions for dining/activities are available at check-in.

Woodhaven Cottage is located in the first mountain cove SE of downtown Asheville. All of the city attractions including the Biltmore Estate, Grove Pk. Inn, Grove Arcade, the restaurants of downtown and micro-breweries are all worth a visit. The area is surrounded by the Pisgah National Forest, Blue Ridge Parkway with Mt. Mitchell St. Park (highest point east of the Rockies) a 40 minute drive and Cherokee and the Great Smoky Mtns. National Pk. a 90 minute drive. There are a multitude of hiking, climbing, camping, and white water canoeing and kayaking opportunities in the National Forest and parks. The N.C. Arboretum offers formal and informal gardens as well as some paved trails and the adjoining Bent Creek recreation area is well known for its bike trails. During the winter season both Cataloochee Ski area in Maggie Valley and Wolf Laurel Ski area make snow for their downhill runs when mother Nature comes up short. Asheville is also the home of many fine restaurants, live entertainment including music ranging from bluegrass to symphony. The best known local showplace is the Orange Peel (about 7 minutes by car from Woodhaven). During the summer months Shindig on the Green is a free bluegrass jam that takes place every Saturday night in the park in front of City Hall and the Courthouse. Local and regional pickers gather to play informally around the edges of the crowd while cloggers and scheduled bluegrass bands play on the stage.
Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: My wife, Mary, and I, are semi-retired from our toy store (Dancing Bear Toys). We are natives of Illinois who are Tar Heels for the last 39 years, 10 in Charlotte and 29 in Asheville. We love the green, lush, WNC mountains and seem to appreciate them more each time we return from our travels.
Why the Owner Chose Asheville:
Our daughters owned this cottage for almost 10 years before "out growing" it. Its proximity to shopping, restaurants and everything that's best in Asheville as well as the quiet solitude it offers caused us to make them "an offer they couldn't refuse" when they decided to move to a larger home. We have recently re-modeled the kitchen and living room, screened the covered porch and added central heat & AC.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Besides the illusion of living in a "tree house" and the peace and quiet that pervades Chunns Cove, due to its location, Woodhaven Cottage has a unique "micro-climate" that is generally 5-10 degrees cooler than most of Asheville. The micro-climate is contributed to by its location on the south shoulder of one of the mountains forming the "dead-end" cove, the heavily wooded area surrounding the cottage and its altitude. Having a hot tub in this location is a luxurious bonus.
Welcome! Park next to deck & come on in! Rocking chairs are around the corner.
