About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Call or email for Special Rates! 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 set of oversized bunk beds and a double bed. All of the mattreses 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.

About Marilyn

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.

Marilyn purchased this cottage in 2009

Great quiet cabin for family

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was just what we were looking for! Close to relatives in black mountain. Cozy and quiet in the woods. Hot tub was enjoyed by my kids. We had a great stay and the owners were easy to contact if needed.

Relaxing weekend away

  • 4 of 5

My girlfriends and I had a great time relaxing at the cottage. We really enjoyed the fire pit and hot tub! We got to explore Black Mountain, which is an adorable little town. We wish we were a tad bit closer to Asheville, but the location made it easy to depart in the morning. Thanks!

Owner's Response: Yes this is a great cottage for getting into asheville which is 15 minutes via interstate and black mountain which is 5 minutes. Usually closer into asheville represents paying a higher nightly rate. Thank you for pointing out that with this cottage you do get to sit outside and have a fire and a year old nice hot tub with a little waterfall. We keep the cottage maintained and clean. Thank you for your lovely review.

Great cabin, we had a delightful weekend.

  • 5 of 5

Cabin was very comfortable, beds especially! Very clean. Location was perfect, easy to get to and close to the things we were wanting to do. Only complaint was the hot tub jets, or lack of jets I should say. They did not work hardly at all. Outside of that, it was great experience and we would rent it again in a heartbeat!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. This is a year old brand new hot tub. I wish you would have called during your stay because we could have told you that if the water level gets too low, jets will not work and that you have to push the button twice to get high. If you push the button once it is low. We did, however, check the jets again to make sure they were operating properly.
