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.

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

Nice place for large groups

  • 4 of 5

This place was great for a reunion weekend with old college friends. Very spacious, good layout, well-equipped kitchen. We enjoyed the proximity to Black Mountain, a nice quaint town with good restaurants. The large kitchen table was very nice, but even better was the spacious and scenic screened in porch. I will say that we overlooked the detail about this cabin not having central a/c -- an important detail to consider if you're visiting in the summer months, but the whole house fan worked well and the shady location helped -- we spent most of our time on the screened in porch and found it very cool and pleasant out there throughout our stay. We'd stay here again!

Group of friends stayed as this wonderful cottage over the memorial weekend while hiking and exploring the Asheville area. It had everything that we needed and was very spacious (there was 13 of us). The owner was very accommodating and was available to answer our calls before and during our stay. I highly recommend this place for large group trips and also hope to stay here again in the future!

Ladies Church Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had our Ladies Church Retreat at "Montreat Is As Close To Heaven As You Can Get". The name seemed appropriate. It was easy once we chose our dates. Diane, the property manager was very accommodating and made it easy for us to secure the house for the weekend. I had a lot of questions and because Diane had stayed at the house she had the answers I needed. There were 12 of us and It was perfect for our weekend. The had everything we needed. The kitchen had lots of dishes, pots and pans; that made our weekend easier because we didn't have to bring any of those items. It was alittle rainy that weekend but many of us still spent time on the screened-in porch. There were a couple of tables and rocking chairs, it was very relaxing. It had a DVD and we used that for our series we are studying of Beth Moore. We did go over to the college and visited the painting of the "Prodigal". It was minutes from the house and it was one of the highlight's of the weekend. We were very fortunate that one of the volunteers was working that day and she spent at least 30 minutes explaining the painting to us. A must see! When we started our search we wanted to be about an hour away. This house was and it was so perfect for us. One of the many highlights of the house was the BIG table, there were enough seats for all of us to sit at the table at the same time and share our meals and lots of conversations. At the end of the retreat we really did feel that we had been very close to heaven.

exceptional place for family reunion

  • 5 of 5

our family has not been together for many years since we live on three continents! The opportunity to all be together in Montreat, a place of treasured memories, was excellent. There were places for all to be together as well as the secret hiding room and passages for childrens delight, and comfortable lounging and talking areas. we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
