Clinton Cottage is directly on a pristine mountain Lake (Lake Ticoa) where you will enjoy your own dock, two kayaks and water tubes just steps away from the cottage. The lake is great for fishing, swimming, kayaking and relaxing. Breathtaking mornings often begin with light mist blanketing the lake in the early morning until sunlight burns through. We often see deer swimming across the lake and heron and hawks flying above. A Bald Eagle makes an appearance now and then. This is a peaceful, family oriented lake that only allows boats with electric motors, which makes walking the Ticoa trail (about 4 miles around the lake) quiet and restorative.
We purchased Clinton Cottage December 2016, spent four months getting it ready and opened it to share with others in May 1, 2017.
Our intention was to make Clinton Cottage as beautiful and as detail oriented as our other 5-star VRBO cottage, the Ivy River Cottage (listing #487494) that is RIVERFRONT in the ASHEVILLE area. For the past three years, we have enjoyed providing our guests with the type of services and experience that we would want for ourselves. We are proud and excited to open our second vacation cottage in the beautiful gated community of Connestee Falls.
Clinton cottage has spectacular wood cathedral ceilings throughout the cottage...including the living room, kitchen and two bedrooms. It is masterfully designed with two bedroom suites each with it's own bathroom plus a three-season sunroom with brand new double sleep sofa and an additional half-bath. The living room and master bedroom have wall to wall cathedral windows overlooking the deck, lake and mountains. The master bedroom also has its own sliding door onto the deck.
A large kitchen with center island has it's own spectacular view of the lake and mountains and is open to the living/dining area. A magnificent stone fireplace is the heart of the living area and becomes magical during the holiday season. Please see our Christmas photo.
We added on a large private dock that is excellent for fishing, swimming and kayaking. We have two kayaks, water tubes, noodles and life jackets. We even have two child-size fishing poles.
In terms of technology, we have wi-fi, two large screen televisions, one in the sunroom and the other in the master bedroom. A land line is for your use since cell phone coverage is sketchy.
Connestee Falls is a gated community that is family oriented with a beach and playground equipment, golf course, tennis courts, multiple spectacular hikes with waterfalls and mountain streams, exercise room, and two dining areas at the clubhouse. A fee of $75.00 is required for the clubhouse and property amenities. There is something for everyone to do all within this beautifully planned community. The charming mountain town of Brevard is just 20 minutes away.
Most of our guests say at the end of their stay that they don't want to leave. And most return. We hope you have the same experience.
