About the property

Cottage, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 14-16)

Nestled up against Greybeard Mountain, in historic Montreat is this deluxe mountain cottage where you can feel the cool mountain breezes in the hot North Carolina summers. This house, built in 1997 was designed to easily accommodate two large families. Sit and enjoy a family meal at the dining table that seats 14. Listen to the night noises of a screech owl or cicada as you relax in the evening on the spacious screened porch. A fully equipped kitchen has everything you have at home and more, and a new home theatre system and wireless broadband internet provides connection to the outside world (if you desire it).

Kids enjoy foosball, hiking, rock hoping in the streams, playing basketball, tennis, or the Montreat clubs for kids. During the summer, enjoy throwing a pot on a potter's wheel at the Sally Jones Craft center or take a paddle boat ride on Lake Susan. Montreat Conference Center hosts a variety of conferences for all ages sponsored by the Presbyterian Church (USA). Hear a sermon preached at Anderson Auditorium by one of America's finest preachers. Bushwack up behind the house and catch the gray blaze trail that will take you all the way up to the Lookout Mountain summit.

Asheville (the Biltmore Estate, the Grove Park Inn and Resort) are 20 minutes. Lake Lure is 25 minutes. Enjoy white water on either the French Broad or the Nanahala. Skiing is available 75 minutes away. Drive 1 hour to the summit of Mount Mitchell, the highest mountain on the East Coast. Drive 1 hour to the Occunaluftee village in Cherokee. See live Shakespeare performed at the Asheville Center Stage.

Beautiful place in the mountains.

  • 4 of 5

We spent a wonderful weekend at this house after touring the Biltmore House celebrating Mother's 75th birthday! There were 16 of us and we had plenty of space to spread out and visit! It rained while we were there but we still enjoyed the rocking chairs on the porch. The heater on the enclosed porch was a nice touch and took the chill off and made for cosy chats! The only drawback was the steep driveway which was an experience in itself. We will come here again!

Daddy Daughter weekend

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place. A little hard to find at first cause of the small roads, but once you got there, the place was perfect. The girls had a blast checking out the creek abd the wooded area. The back porch got alot of use from drinking coffee in the morning to having a couple cocktails at night.

Lovely home! Very comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the home for a girls weekend for 12. This is a wonderful property with plenty of open conversation space. The space was perfect, as were the numerous comfortable beds. We especially enjoyed the small enclosed room off the den and the new spacious porch with the running stream beside it. Lovely - we will be back!

Staying at Montreat

  • 5 of 5

Great place for a large group (14) like ours. This is the first time that all 14 of us could sit at the same table together and enjoy a meal. The kitchen was very well equipped. The house itself is very nice and the furnishings are very nice. Montreat and Black Mountain are very nice and fun to visit. The German Restaurant in Black Mountain was exceptional. We all agreed that we would stay there in that same house again. L. D. Brya III
