About the property

3 Bed/2 Bath, Cottage Charm With Modern Features

This 3 bedroom/2 bath mountain cottage features a waterfall, mountain views and tranquility. Just 20 minutes to downtown Asheville or Hendersonville & only 10 minutes to Chimney Rock State Park & Lake Lure. Located in Upper Hickory Nut Gorge (home to miles of hiking trails on nature preserves), this quiet forested community features a few dozen cottages, a spring-fed pond, shared green space and an appreciation for family retreats. The historic Upper Hickory Nut Gorge Community Club building sits within walking distance and has been holding monthly potluck dinners for over 75 years. The picturesque Bearwallow Baptist Church is just up the street and still plays hymns that echo through the gorge every evening. This is a perfect get away if you want peace & quiet with easy access to loads of activities! Spend a busy day visiting Biltmore Estate, walking the River Arts District, exploring the many local micro-breweries, organic farms & vineyards or hiking miles of trails in the Florence Preserve, then return to this tranquil setting and while away the evening on the large front deck as the sun sets across the mountain top.

Main floor features very large deck with view of Little Pisgah Mountain, great room with living/dining room, fully equipped kitchen, Master bedroom with private deck overlooking waterfall, full bath. Downstairs has 2 bedrooms, sitting/tv area and full bath. Lovely yard with walkway to the waterfall and groomed trails through nature preserves.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

Very beautiful and comfortable home nestled in the woods. Plenty of room to spread out. Centrally located as a midpoint between Asheville, Chimney Rock, Lake Lure and Brevard. Thanks for a great stay.

Comfortable home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

We made last minute travel plans due to an incoming storm and chose this cozy home to make our "home away from home." Travis was very accommodating with check in and was responsive to all of our questions throughout the stay. The home had all of the necessities - including a very well stocked spice pantry! My children loved the little waterfall as well as the stream down the hill. The location was perfect for our trip and we spent time hiking and swimming in the local area. We were a little bummed not to have noticed there was no washer/dryer, but thankfully we found a local laundromat nearby. Thanks for a great stay!

Owner's Response: Jessica, I’m glad you and your family enjoyed your stay. I know we had some difficulties regarding damage done by the children, but you were very responsible about handling the situation, which I truly appreciate. You and your family are welcome to return anytime. I appreciate your feedback about the lack of washer and dryer. While it is noted in the listing, I will call it out more clearly so folks arrive with a full understanding in the future.

Sweet and Clean

  • 5 of 5

This is a sweet house with a great floorplan for enjoying a break from life. We had a cousins reunion and enjoyed our time here very much. The house was very clean when we arrived. The power happened to be out in the Gerton area, and the owner alerted us to that fact and also told us where the lanterns were.

This property is located away from the hustle and bustle and is an excellent location for being able to visit Chimney Rock, Lake Lure, and Asheville. If you rent this property, plan to do some cooking. The kitchen has room enough for several cooks, and the owner has plenty of dishes, cooking supplies, and even some spices you can use!

The waterfall is adorable. You can see/hear it from the upstairs bedroom (which has a little deck). There is also an area with some chairs outside perfect for sitting and enjoying the waterfall up close.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Sweet cottage up in the mountains. Perfect for a quiet getaway, but close enough to Asheville and several surrounding towns to be very convenient. Wish we could have stayed a little longer. The cottage is very cozy, but has a large open concept, and additional bedrooms downstairs, so would work for a larger family also. Loved the little waterfall right in the backyard. The hosts were very kind-left us a bottle of wine and a Happy Birthday card! 👍?🏼?❤️
