About Rob Denton

Brother and Sister owners live a short distance from the house and are involved in the decor and maintenance of this sweet cottage. Managers Holly Berry and Rob Denton live behind the Cottage and work diligently to provide a safe, clean, up to date home for your vacation.

Rob Denton purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Rob Denton chose Candler

Friends owned the home and wanted to live in downtown Asheville making play dates for their young daughter easier, so we decided to take it over and turn it into a vacation home. Very little work needed to be done since the home was well cared for by our friends.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage has a sweet deck in the trees for relaxing. Also off the master bedroom is a balcony out of the weather to enjoy coffee in the morning. A short walk behind the house and through the woods brings you to Brahma Ridge Event Center for hiking, sitting in the Gazebo or on the pond deck.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a great time and this residence was perfect! We loved the deck and grilling and the quiet comfortable space. We will definitely recommend to our friends!

All the best...Daryl.

Fantastic Retreat in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

This turned out to be the perfect getaway spot for us for the Thanksgiving holiday. Even though it's a 2/2, it would easily sleep a couple more between the loft and the sofa. Well equipped with good internet and TV and the kitchen had everything we could possibly need during our stay. I would absolutely recommend the Catwalk Cottage to other travelers.

Thanks Rob for your close attention during the stay... we had a great holiday!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience using VRBO, and first experience staying in a vacation rental. We have been very apprehensive about doing this in the past. That being said this was a fantastic first run! The place was clean, super cute, and very comfortable. It was convenient for all

Places we wanted to go. We even grilled one night and ate on the cute deck. The neighbors dog did come to visit while we were BBQing and was so sweet and friendly. Overall great place and great experience.

Great hideaway but also really easy to get to local attractions.

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved this property especially sitting out on the deck in the evening. The sunset is easily enjoyed from this perspective. Rob was attentive and quick to communicate and we felt like we had a home away from home. Will definitely return. Our daughter loved the catwalk room and the double shower head in the upstairs bedroom was a nice surprise.

Great place! Cozy, felt like home, close to everything Asheville has to offer!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Catwalk Cottage. It was our first time using HomeAway and I feel like it really lives up to its standards. The house was clean, cozy and very comfortable. We ventured out into downtown Asheville and even the Biltmore, the house was within 30 mins of both. Downtown has great food and lots of cute shops. The owners were great with helping us the our first process of using HomeAway! We would definitely stay here again anytime we want to visit Asheville.

Owner's Response: Rob and I are so happy you enjoyed your stay. It can be challenging to rent a house for the first time when you are used to hotels, so we work hard to make the process easy and provide a clean and comfortable house for you and your family. We leave a wish list form on the counter asking for your feedback as to what would make our homes better. It helps us so much when folks fill it out since we do not live in the house. Thank the guests that came before you for all their suggestions. We will take credit for making their suggestions Holly
