Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)
Heartsong cottage is a charming turn of the century built home that has been totally updated and remodeled and is only 15 minutes from downtown Asheville. It has a covered rocking chair front porch with a private deck out back. It sits in a small mountain neighborhood. There are two bedrooms one with the master bedroom having king size bed and other bedroom having a double bed. Many guests enjoy visiting the spectacular Biltmore Estate along with shopping and browsing the many galleries and stores in the Asheville area. Others like participating in hiking and water activities, attending a festival, concert, or play. Whatever your pleasure, you can always come back to the cottage and relax in front of the quaint gas log fireplace, watch TV or a DVD from the video library on our flat screen TV, play a family game or use your laptop to surf the web with high speed WIFI access. Relaxing in the comfortable Hot Springs spa and/or cooking out with the gas grill on our private deck is also a definite option.
The quaint downtown of Black Mountain is only three minutes away from the cottage, with the beautiful Lake Tomahawk only a short five minute drive (see picture. There is a trail around Lake Tomahawk with beautiful mountain scenery in almost every direction. Also adjacent to the Lake is a huge twenty five yard swimming pool with kiddie area for the whole family to enjoy. The pool can also easily accommodate lap swimmers.
Peaceful and charming, the cottage is 15 minutes from the center of Asheville with its many world class restaurants, year-round live entertainment, museums, art galleries, theaters, concert halls, and large exhibitions at the Civic Center. During the spring, summer and fall seasons there are festivals occurring all over the area with the Biltmore Estates Festival of Flowers occurring every April and the L.E.A.F. Festival taking place twice a year in May and October.
Asheville is also an antique hunter’s paradise, and the River Arts District (has more than 80 artists’ studios) produces some of the best art in America. Shoppers also love the boutiques and many specialty shops the downtown area has to offer. The quaint mountain village of Black Mountain, only 3 minutes away from the cottage also has a charming downtown area with many quality restaurants as well. Access to the Blue Ridge parkway is a quick and easy ten minute drive away. Lake Lure and the beautiful Chimney Rock State Park is a scenic and relaxing 30 minute drive. Mt. Mitchell, highest mountain in the Eastern U.S., is a 45 minute drive from the cottage up the Blue Ridge Parkway.
Please note that winter road conditions in the mountains can often be unpredictable. While the cottage is close to a main road about (500 feet), the road grade leading up the cottage while small, is still steep enough that a 4 wheel drive vehicle might be required if there is more than a few inches of snow on the ground. In more severe weather ( 3+ inches of snow or ice) guests may have to park at the bottom of the road and walk up to the cottage. Guests should keep abreast of weather conditions several days before their arrival and we also encourage them to call us as well for updated information on weather and road conditions. We highly recommend that winter guests consider buying travel insurance.

Bill and I are seniors who are working. We have been people helpers all our life and made careers out of it. I am a retired social worker. We love the area of Asheville and found it to be very enjoyable and thought that others would want to come and visit but not everyone can afford to pay the high prices of vacation rentals. So we decided to get into the vacation rental business. Bill works full time and I manage the cottage.

A friend and I rented Heartsong Cottage on a recent visit to Asheville to attend the LEAF Festival. The cottage is cozy, clean, has good amenities, closets, and porches. We enjoyed coffee in the backyard sitting area around the firepit. The natural surroundings make you feel like you are out in nature even though you are very close to the highway and access to Black Mountain and Asheville. The cottage sits in a cozy culdesac with two other cottages -- would be a great location for a multi-family gathering if the other properties were available for rent. We honestly were only there to sleep because of our weekend plans, but Heartsong Cottage met our needs perfectly.
Yes the cottage is all that you say it is and the location makes it so easy to get around to all the wonderful sites and sounds of the area.
Nice cabin. Quiet and clean.
Good property. Everything you need is provided. Hot tub is awesome.
This cottage was adorable and clean. Everything was well kept and had what we needed for our trip. It is close to everything....food, shops and great hiking. We would and probably will go back!
Thanks. Wonderful review.
It was a cute, cozy place perfect for the two of us. It had all the amenities you would need for a short stay available. It was an easy drive to Asheville and downtown Black Mountain. Would definitely recommend to others. We had a really nice time!
We have stayed twice, and will stay again! The owners are responsive and the cabin has everything you need!
Great review. Thanks.
I would rent it again
Very nice cottage
We are always happy to welcome retuning customers. This is a great cottage and so affordable too.
