About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)


This is a lovely renovated rock house my grandparents owned located in the 'Mayberryesque' town of Weaverville - Near everything Asheville!

If you just want to stay close to the house, Main Street has nice little restaurants and a coffee house/bakery with the best pastries I have had anywhere. Near Main is a beautiful lake with hundreds of ducks, walking trail, and playground for the kids.

Easy to find when you get here...only half of a mile from I26.

For the things you may need at home, there are two major 24 hour groceries, fast food and fuel within a mile of the house.

I have included a web link to my detailed Web Site. Make sure you give it a click and bookmark it so you do not forget.

You will only be nine minutes from famous Downtown Asheville where cultures meet among every dining and shopping experience you can imagine.

12 Minutes away is The Biltmore House.

6 Golf courses within 5 to 20 minutes.

Harrah's Casino is 45 minutes away.

Colleges: UNCA - ten minutes; Mars Hill College - ten minutes.

Blue Ridge Parkway - four entrances (one is ten minutes, the other is just 15); Dollywood - 1.5 hours; two Ski Slopes. One just 20 minutes away. Hot Springs Mineral Spas are only 25 minutes away. Airport, 25 miles. There is even an Asheville City Bus Stop just one block away if you would rather someone else drive you.

Wilson's Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Three friends and I were at the cottage for a week doing a show. It was wonderful to come "home" to a cozy cottage with all the amenities. It was exceptionally clean and we had a very accommodating host. The cottage was convenient to, groceries, restaurants and touring. I hope to visit again!

Excellent Cottage Close to Everything

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay there! Kept us warm and cozy with all at-home conveniences. A real pleasure to come to in the evenings after spending our days sight-seeing from Asheville to Cherokee to Gatlinburg. I loved that the cottage was out of the hustle and bustle, quietly situated with easy access to the interstate and stores for everyday needs. It literally was less than 10min to downtown Asheville!

Great Cottage - Close to Attractions, In a Quiet Location

  • 5 of 5

In our initial stages of wedding planning in Asheville we stayed at the cottage to have more room and accomodations for a 5 person traveling party. The cottage is lovely, has character, nice updates and everything you need in a vacation home. It was very neat and clean! The beds were comfortable, very nice to have laundry and kitchen available. The owner was great to work with and we cannot thank him enough! Thank you for making our stay so wonderful!!!

An Amazing Time

  • 4 of 5

We truly had an amazing time during our stay at the Cottage. Everything was so clean and well kept. So close to Asheville, Biltmore House and of course the little town of Weaverville. We enjoyed the fireplace on those cold winter nights which was every night we were there. We too thank you for the little extras such as the Christmas flowers and the chocolates. Thanks again Eric and we hope to visit again real soon.

Couldn't have been better or cleaner!

  • 5 of 5

This property was exactly as described by owner. My teenage girls loved it. They wanted to move it home with them. (Fresh flowers and chocolate when we arrived didn't hurt either.)

After five days in a hotel room in Charlotte, this home was a welcome retreat with so many bedrooms/beds, a place to kick back and watch movies and to eat something besides fast food!

It was a perfect location for us to reach our adventures...white water rafting with NOC, ziplining in the treetops with Navitat, Grandfather Mountain, Chimney Rock and the Biltmore. The location was also very convenient to grocery, drugstores, gas stations, etc. We loved the Sunnyside Cafe in downtown Weaverville. Food was delicious.

The owners personal website is detailed and complete. Be sure to utilize that information.

Thanks again Eric!
