Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Our guest cottage is just 10 minutes from downtown Hendersonville and the Asheville Airport. The cottage is located 1/4 mile from a main two lane highway. Our paved deadend private road hosts only 9 homes. The cottage is situated on our property and through dense woods in a private setting.

The Cardinal is nestled in a forest of mature pines and oaks. The land surrounding the Cardinal is level and there are only three steps from the driveway into the cottage. The cottage is surrounded by large wooded tracts, creating a very quiet relaxing and private setting. The location is perfect for all your sightseeing adventures or relaxing on the porch. The cottage is close to Hendersonville and Mills River but a retreat all its own.

The Cardinal is nicely decorated and has a fully equipped and stocked kitchen. A large screened-in porch is accessed through double French doors off the living room. Enjoy relaxing on the porch while white squirrels scamper and birds land on the feeders. An occasional flock of turkeys or a deer might wander by. The porch boasts an old-fashioned wooden swing, 4- person dining table and 2 comfortable reading chairs.The living room is spacious with comfortable furniture and a game table for cards or computer work. There are 2 Smart HD tvs. The one in the living room is 4K.The other is in the twin bedroom. One bedroom has a double bed and the second bedroom has two twin beds. The twins can be converted to a king for 3 weeks stays or longer. Both have large dressers and double-deep closet space. The bathroom offers a comfort height commode, 2 grab bars and a hand -held shower wand.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have enjoyed our stay at Cardinal Cottage very much. The quiet and peacefulness of the area was fantastic. We both needed the R&R that we got at your cottage. We enjoyed watching the birds from the kitchen window and thanks for the flowers. We hope to stay with you again very soon.

We hate to even write a review- we selfishly don’t want to share this wonderful cottage with too many others! It was one of our very favorites in the Hendersonville area. Convenient yet secluded. Just relaxing & watching the wildlife from the screened porch was great. Lonnie & David we’re most congenial & helpful. Can’t wait to return in the fall

The property was perfect for my family. Nice little cottage with privacy surrounded by nature. One morning as I sat in the living room I looked out the window as a deer was strolling in the front yard. My daughter was so excited to see it so close. Lonnie and David made us feel like home, so pleasant and helpful I just loved them. Definitely want to come back in the near future.

Really nice and accommodating owners.

  • 4 of 5

A small and comfortable cottage on top of a hill. Lots of trees. There is a screened outside space attached to the house. Only downside is you can hear the nearby traffic while outside. Great location. Only half hour from Asheville and about the same to Pisgah Forest ,where there is great hiking and fishing. I would stay there again.
