About the property


HolleyBerry Haven is a newly constructed(November 2017) cottage located 10 minutes outside Asheville, NC.

We are a few feet from Montreat atop Tomahawk Mountain. It is easy walking distance to the famous Greybeard hiking trail ; and only 15 mile hike up across the Blue Ridge Parkway to Mount Mitchell. Hollyberry is on paved Carolina Heights with easy safe walking to Montreat & Black Mountain yet beautiful woods.

Holly Berry’s big upstairs windows open onto Lookout Mountain and rainbow Mountain.

Staying at Holleyberry , you are a mile and a half walk to Lake Susan in Montreat or downtown Black Mountain, and a quick 15 minute drive to Biltmore, The Grove Park Inn, and all that is Asheville. All this and you are as far up Mount Tomahawk as the pavement goes. We see bear ,fox, , guineas, turkeys, and our most unique animal friend, our local albino deer.

About The Alexanders

We are a retired couple. We have lived in Black Mountain, near Asheville for about 10 years. We enjoy travel; but we especially enjoy living the mountains near Asheville where we have so much fun exploring , and sharing new adventures every day.

The Alexanders purchased this cottage in 2017

Why The Alexanders chose Black Mountain

Hollyberry is new. We just built it as a holiday getaway! It is bright, spiffy clean, comfortable. It is located at the edge of Black Mountain. Very close to Montreat, on a safe, easily negotiated paved street,,, yet there is very little beyond you for the next 5-10 miles except virgin mountains and woodlands. Some people, who are outdoor zealots, walk the 12 or so mile from Hollyberry to the peak of Mt. Mitchell. A hike not for the faint of heart. It is the highest peak east of the Rockies.

Hollyberry is quiet, has an isolated feel, cozy, and comfortable. Yet it is a mile to a convenience store, another mile to great restaurants, music, fresh markets and more, and only 10 more expressway miles to Asheville. It has the best of everything.

What makes this cottage unique

New, Roomy. comfortable 2 bedroom, one & 1/2 bath . Close in Black Mountain, almost in Montreat, and just 15 minutes to Asheville. Well fenced an private, yet high up Tomahawk mountains with close by views of Lookout Mountain and Rainbow Mountain. @ minute drive or long walk to food, music, and shopping in Black Mountain.

A Treasure! Book It!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a music festival and booked this new vacation cottage. We brought our small dog, Buddy. The owners were very friendly and left us wine and local treats from a New Orleans Bakery in town. We loved the fenced yard for Buddy. Fred and Linda left us a goody basket of everything we needed to make S'mores over the fire pit. They even had firewood, starter and matches. My girlfriend loved the Contemporary Cabin feel of the the place. The ceilings are tall and there are large windows so you can see the mountains. The furniture is brand new and the beds are plush with nice linens. We didn't do much cooking, but if we wanted to the kitchen appeared well stocked. I had several hours of computer work to do during our stay and was impressed with the internet speed. Holly Berry is a treasure, Thank you Linda and Fred

Just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I had a wonderful time at the newly constructed vacation rental owned by Linda and Fred. Holly Berry sparkled with newness. We loved being so close to everything in Black Mountain and Montreat. It was so relaxing sitting in the rocking chairs on the front porch and looking at the beautiful mountains. One night we ate take out Thai food and roasted marshmallows that Linda dropped off along with stuff to make S'mores.

The place is just great. We are planning our next trip when the leaves change in October!

Adorable new Holly Berry makes for a perfect trip!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed staying at this brand new vacation rental. Linda and Fred went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The rental is well decorated with bright colors, comfy beds and plush linens. We were traveling with our dog, Kona, a lab mix and he loved the private fenced yard. We loved the location! So close to Montreat. We hiked on the Lookout Trail and walked around Lake Susan. We walked to the Dripolator , down town 2 mornings and went shopping at several of the cute stores.

The kitchen was well stocked; they even had coffee and tea. There is a washer and dryer which was great since we tend to pack light. Asheville, was a quick 15 minute drive. We spent a day at the Biltmore House and went to several breweries. Fred dropped off homemade Banana Bread and a bottle of wine and helped us with some trail maps. We want to come back in the summer and go white water rafting.
