About the Property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Located on half an acre two blocks up from lovely Lake Tomahawk in the charming mountain town of Black Mountain North Carolina, The Blue Ridge European Cottage is perfectly situated just off the beautiful NC Blue Ridge Parkway, only 10 miles east of Asheville North Carolina.

Looking for Black Mountain North Carolina Lodging? The Blue Ridge European Cottage is great not only for family fun, but the lovely, European decor and quiet surroundings are perfect for a couple's getaway. Marriage proposal in the works? Perfect, romantic atmosphere is yours for the asking. Want to hold a small wedding ceremony? Hold it on the 1000 square foot deck built around two large maple trees offering a 'ceiling' of green leaves in the spring and summer, and in the winter, the deck often takes on the look of a multi-tiered wedding cake with the soft, white snow 'icing.' Be sure to browse the lovely, seasonal pictures of the interior and exterior!

Your stay at the Blue Ridge Cottage will bring relaxation and exhilarating enjoyment of the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains. We're centered in the heart of the beautiful Black Mountain Range, just 15 minutes from Asheville's famous Biltmore Mansion, a short 30 minutes from the now famous Cold Mountain, 25 minutes from Chimney Rock Park, 10 minutes from the treasures of the Blue Ridge Parkway, and 45 minutes from excellent skiing and Mt. Mitchell, the highest peak east of the Rocky Mountains. For an extraordinary experience, make The Blue Ridge Cottage your home away from home while exploring the wonders of Western North Carolina!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: After having lived and worked 'all over the world,' I chose Black Mountain, NC for my permanent residence. It is reminiscent of Austria and Hawaii--green mountains from top to bottom in the summer, snow-capped in the winter. I was a well-known performer in Europe and visited Asheville in 1995 (the same year Prince Charles was guest at the Biltmore Estate). I am a collector of fine art and antiques, knowing many famous artists myself. Some of the collection is featured in the cottage and adds greatly to its artistic charm. I maintain close ties to Europe and still perform. My mother was a well-known French chef who taught me from a young age how to perform well in the kitchen. By special request I have catered for the Dalai Lama and for the State Department in Vienna, Austria. On occasion I cater for the cottage's guests.

Why the Owner Chose Black Mountain, NC, USA:
The beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains area and nearby Asheville and Biltmore Estate is almost as remarkable as portions of Austria or Hawaii. Walking around Lake Tomahawk just down the street from the cottage reminds me, personally, of the walk around Lake Lucerne in Switzerland where I lived for one year. The water from our own reservoir here in Black Mountain is fresh and clean, the produce from the region's farmer markets meets the high standards of someone used to the best of European cuisine.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Location, location, location! Ideally situated. Walk down to lovely Lake Tomahawk with its charming walking path, free summer concerts and tennis courts, brand new swimming pool. Enjoy downtown Black Mountain's famous regional restaurants (pizza!) and unique jewelry, craft and furniture and antique shops. Drive minutes to the Blue Ridge Parkway, Asheville. Beautiful all seasons, a true hidden gem. On a rainy day stay in the cottage and enjoy the peace and quiet. The New York Times called Black Mountain a 'Haven.'
