Property description

Thank you for visiting the listing of Newfound Cottage!!

■■ PLAN FOR FALL!!
.... 5 night minimum Oct. 13-31

■■ POOL IS 330' DOWN FROM THE COTTAGE
.... unlike staying at a hotel or going to a community pool, you have our pool all to yourselves. Because we have found that our guests and my family are able to use it privately at different times of the day.

The area of Newfound in Leicester, NC, is a farming community. Once you take Newfound Road exit and near the end of your 5.7 miles to our driveway, you can easily see the valley created by the mountains as you come down Newfound Mtn. Houses here are acres apart, not 20' from each other. There's no other area in WNC that presents such a view upon entrance as the area of Newfound. Newfound Cottage is only 8.7 miles from the Asheville City Limits [via in-town roads] and only 20 minutes to downtown Asheville [via in-town roads]. This particular piece of mountainside is a 136 acre privately owned family farm, owned by my family for 30+ years. The drive up to the cottage is 1/2 a mile long, so you can't see it from the main road. We, the owners live on this mountainside as well. Our private residence is 2 acres from the cottage. We're here to be helpful, keep up our cottage and property to our high standards, but you have complete privacy at the cottage. We don't boast a grand view from the cottage, because it's setting offers peace 'n quiet and mountain wilderness. There's complete seclusion on the back deck of the cottage with the hot tub and outdoor fireplace. Then the onsite hiking is available if you'd like to get out, stretch your legs, and see exactly what you have heard other visitors to this area say about being in the mountains. Visiting us in Summer means you have a swimming pool only 300' down from the cottage. Just because the pool isn't physically attached to the cottage doesn't mean you won't be able to use it privately. We have found it very easy for our guests and our family to use the pool at completely different times of day so everyone gets to use the pool privately. Besides the onsite hiking, hot tub, outdoor fireplace and swimming pool, the cottage offers 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms with 2 of those being suites - one is on the main the other upstairs. We have had guests with aging parents, small children as well as teenagers, find the accommodations at Newfound Cottage to be great due to the comfortable main floor accommodations and private upstairs, while the main floor has an open concept where everyone can socialize. While offering onsite hiking, hot tub, outdoor fireplace, and swimming pool, 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, the nightly rates reflect the 1400 sq. ft. size of the house. We offer the high-end amenities some other more expensive vacation rentals do, but at a much lower rates taking into consideration the size of the house. Come stay at the best vacation rental with the best amenities in the mountains of western North Carolina .... Newfound Cottage!!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: My husband and I have been married since 1990 and have had both full time and vacation rentals since 1993. We're big DIYers. I am an artist by nature, so interior decorating comes natural to me. My husband has artistic skills and abilities too but prefers building things. We built our cottage with our own four hands over a 3 yr. period, every weekend, every holiday, and our own money. A vacation rental business suits me for being able to earn income from home while keeping myself available for my school-age son, having time for family/school activities, as well as being able to clean and maintain my vacation rentals to my high standards.

Why the Owner Chose Leicester, NC, USA:
The community of Newfound in Leicester is a farming community. Since we loved the area enough to build our dream home here, we knew our guests would appreciate a home-away-from-home in a true country setting. Perfect location being 5.7 miles from the interstate, 20 minutes from downtown and only 25 minutes to the Biltmore Estate. So you get to enjoy time "vacationing" instead of driving. It's the best of both worlds.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Relaxing in the mountain setting with lightning bugs and tree frogs at night, song birds during the day, being in a well maintained clean house, beautifully decorated, minutes from major attractions, while having simple amenities like satellite TV, WiFi, magazines, board games and DVDs in case of less than favorable weather. But also having the high end amenities like a hot tub, outdoor fireplace, onsite hiking and swimming pool when there's nothing but perfect weather is in sight!!!
