About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6 PEOPLE MAX. NO KIDS under 12 allowed.)

PLEASE call me at 404.323.0338 or email us at for best rate for 2 people. You just found your mountain retreat!! We are IN CASHIERS, unlike other VRBO homes that POP up!? No road noise! Ask other owners about convenience/location to 'crossroads' and ask about road noise. (These two issues are KEY when renting IN CASHIERS!)When you compare our furnishings, decor and appliances to other homes on the rental market, our home is a true bargain! It's time to escape to our cool & cozy mountain cottage! Now is a GREAT time visit Cashiers. What a cozy place to spend a romantic weekend (we'll reduce the price for 2 adults) or to spend time with family. Though we are just 5 minutes from the crossroads of Cashiers (restaurants, coffee houses and quaint shops) and 3 minutes away from Ingles grocery store, we hear no highway noise...just the sounds of nature - birds and the wind blowing through the trees!

Please call me for BEST RATE at time of interest! :-)

Our cottage is located in Cedar Hill, a private, gated community in Cashiers, NC. Our three bedroom, three bathroom home is nestled in a wooded lot with a very nice view of the NC mountains. You truly get the feel of being in the mountains, yet are SO close to amenities.

The main level features a family room with a stacked stone fireplace and a fully equipped kitchen. It also has a bedroom (full bed), large closet and full bathroom on the main level. (What's nice is that the downstairs bedroom connects to a full, private bath.)

Relax and enjoy the view of the mountains our our back deck...sip some wine, bird watch or grill-out!

The upstairs has two spacious bedrooms and two private full baths. So it's like having TWO MASTER BEDROOMS upstairs. Our laundry room is also upstairs. The first bedroom features a queen bed and the bathroom features a deep tub, a separate shower and two sinks. The other bedroom has 2 full beds, also with a private full bathroom and lots of closet space. One recent renter said, 'This quaint cottage is the perfect home base for your mountain adventure.'

Special Note: This is easy-access for an older person or someone who does not like a lot of steps. To enter the front door from your car, you just have to walk down 4 steps and up 2. Big plus - bed and bath on main, too. Unfortunately, we can no longer rent to families with kids. Sorry!

$500 minimum rental.

Come and enjoy our cottage retreat!

About Margaret Mertens

Hello! We live in Atlanta and built this cottage back in 2001 (before kids) to escape the city life as often as possible! Anton is an immigration attorney with Burr and Forman in Atlanta. We moved to Atlanta 20 years ago.

Margaret Mertens purchased this house in 2001

Why Margaret Mertens chose Cashiers

Our cottage is in a SUPER location...we are in a private, gated community called Cedar Hill. Our home is on a very private lot with a view of the mountains! We are 3 minutes away from the grocery store, yet we rarely hear anything but the sounds of nature...birds, a creek, and trees blowing in the wind. Our deck is a great place to gaze at the stars!

What makes this house unique

We have beautiful walking trails throughout the community that include views of streams and waterfalls. We are 5 minutes away from the 'crossroads' in Cashiers...many unique antique shops, restaurants, and clothing stores. We are very close to Lake Glenville, close to many beautiful waterfalls and great hiking trails. Also close to a river where you can tube (only $15/person - so much fun!)

Beautiful Home, Great owner

  • 5 of 5

I spent a week at this home with 3 girlfriends and it was perfect! All the bedrooms were very spacious and the kitchen was well-stocked. The back porch had wonderful views and the location can't be beat-- close to everything, but quiet and serene. The home is tastefully decorated and very clean. I would strongly recommend this home and plan to return. Thank you Margaret!

Great Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I traveled to Cashiers this past August to attend the Designer Show house event. We stayed at this property and loved our accommodations. It is in a beautiful subdivision in very close proximity to top notch restaurants and outdoor activities. If you like a true mountain experience, with beautiful views and privacy to boot, then you must consider this property. Great value for the money. Owners were great to work with! Will stay here next time we are in the mountains!

Just right for our family - Cashiers Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The Cashiers cottage was a great fit for our family or 2 parents, 2 pre-teens, and we still had room to spare. The house was described well and was well-equipped - it had everything we needed. I thought it was even better than the attractive pictures on the website. Very clean and open space.

Loved the quick hike to the nearby stream for kids to play in. The location was A+ if you want to be in Cashiers, but not in the action. The owner was very helpful - responsive in a timely manner and flexible with our needs. We hope to be back for longer!

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We recently brought our two boys (2 and 4) for three nights and had a fabulous family vacation. The house is amazing - clean, beautifully decorated and a great view. The kitchen was well stocked and had state of the art appliances, which was great because the view was so nice we wanted to cook and eat at the house. The location can't be beat - very convenient to Cashiers, grocery, hiking, waterfalls, etc., but also very private. The house is in a wooded area and we could barely see the top of one house. The owners are also very responsive and obvioiusly take good care of the house. We will definitely return. Don't miss hiking Whiteside Mountain and having ice cream at Sweet Treats!

Luxurious with natural beauty!

  • 5 of 5

My family fit this home so perfectly. It is well decorated to feel luxurious and comfortable. We enjoyed a dinner out in a local restaurant and meals with a gorgous view in this cottage. I appreciated the privacy and natural beauty of the large natural lot with the security of a gated community. Perfect place for adventurous and/or restful vacations.

Terrific Get-Away!!

  • 5 of 5

For the past two years, my friends and I have stayed at this wonderful home for our annual "girl's trip". It met all our needs to help make our trip so enjoyable!! It is a well-furnished, beautifully decorated home with a wonderful view and a great location. We truly got a sense of being in the mountains but yet we were only a few minutes away from great shopping and wonderful restaurants.The home is very clean and is equipped with everything you might need. The owners are very easy to work with and you can tell that they care very much for their mountain home! We look forward to staying here again!!
