Like an actual heron’s nest, our new mountain modern cottage overlooks the Ivy River and is just a short drive to Asheville’s vibrant cultural and food scene and Western North Carolina’s amazing recreational opportunities.
Only 20 minutes from downtown Asheville, the peaceful retreat setting provides the best of both worlds. Just completed June 2017, this stylish cottage was designed to create a blend of a mountain cabin’s harmonious connection with the natural world and all of the newest, luxury amenities of home. Wide sweeping views from your deck or home interior provide opportunities for spotting our resident heron and other wonderful bird life, to listening to the sounds of the laughing river. Each room, including a bath with a large picture window connects you to the revitalizing experience of nature.
Situated on 20 beautiful acres of land with private river access for fishing or relaxing. You can walk on trails through ever-changing woods or stroll along the Ivy River. We have three special outdoor areas for enjoyment. The first is our south facing deck. Accessed from either the main living area or master bedroom, it is perfect for watching a sunset while listening to the sounds of the Ivy River below. Just a few steps from the front door of the cottage in a wooded area shaded by a great oak, you can read, have an engaging conversation or take a relaxing nap in the hammock. We have also set aside a private spot on the river, a short walk from the cottage where you have your own beach area to sit, wade or fish.
The cottage is ideal for small families, 2 couples or a small group. Dogs considered.
