Looking for a TOTALLY secluded hideaway in a mountain setting, yet minutes from the charming towns of Asheville and Weaverville? This cottage has everything you need for a romantic get-away or a home-base for exploring the beautiful Appalachian mountains. If you're an outdoor enthusiast, kayaking and mountain biking are but minutes from your front door. Want to unwind from it all? Then step out onto the deck where you can relax in your private hot tub while taking in the beautiful views. Use our home as a base from which to explore the wonderful sights, sounds and tastes of downtown Asheville. If you prefer, enjoy the provided books on the comfy sofa in the living room area, or relax upstairs in the loft/den. TV enthusiast? Enjoy the 42''FLAT SCREEN HI-DEF TV while reclining in the new recliners. With 3 acres of woods, the serenity of the area is perfect for a retreat from the routine of daily life.
We provide all the necessary amenities to make your stay as enjoyable as possible, and then some! Maps, menus, and written directions make it easy to find all the restaurants, shopping areas, and attractions you may want to take in during your visit. Games such as Scrabble and Trivial Pursuit bring fun and entertainment to the day or night. And speaking of night, enjoy a complimentary bottle of champagne while relaxing on the covered porch as you star-gaze or listen to the peaceful sounds of the French Broad River.
Our cottage is equipped with central air conditioning for the warmer days of the year, as well as ceiling fans for those times when a cool breeze would be perfect. Thanks to skylights in the loft and bathroom (yes, bathroom!), there's always a feeling of warmth and sunshine throughout.
Don't want to leave your pets behind? Then bring them with you! They'll love exploring the surrounding woods. There is even a wooded dog park less than two miles from the cottage.
We know you'll come to understand and appreciate the comfort of our cottage. We truly want to make your vacation special in every way.
NOTE: PLEASE KNOW THAT THE ROAD TO THE COTTAGE IS GRAVEL. YOU MUST HAVE FRONT-WHEEL OR ALL-WHEEL DRIVE TO REACH THE COTTAGE. THIS IS A TOTALLY NON-SMOKING COTTAGE. NO SMOKING IS ALLOWED INSIDE OR OUTSIDE.

About the owner: Kerry is a local design/builder who put her talents to work creating Mountainside Cottage. She incorporated her love of light and simplicity to create a place that is warm and inviting. Susan lends her talents as the former owner of one of the Southeast's most successful bed and breakfasts, making sure that this cottage has everything necessary to make a traveler feel at home. Having lived in the Asheville area for 20 years, we have a deep love and respect for the natural environment as well as the cultural opportunities found in this region of the Appalachian mountains.
Why the Owner Chose Alexander, NC, USA:
When the 3 private acres adjacent to our 15 acres became available, we knew that would be the perfect place to build a vacation home for our extended families. As they are scattered around the world, it was important for us to offer a place that was near by, but afforded them the privacy they need and deserve. We soon realized this would also be a great place to offer as a vacation rental.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
In this busy world, this is a unique opportunity to experience TOTAL privacy. One of the things we love about the cottage is sitting on the covered deck, looking out into the woods, and listening to the sounds of nature. It's also great to drive into Weaverville, about 5 minutes away, grab a pastry or two at the world's BEST bakery, and come back and relax on the patio or in the hot tub on the deck.
