The ultimate in secluded, safe accommodations on an Country Estate Property.
A little bit industrial loft, a little bit rustic retreat, a little bit country cottage -- our guest apartment is perfect for one or two couples, with or without children in tow (or a girls' weekend). We are family owned and operated.
Open-concept living/dining/kitchen with polished concrete floors and tall, wood-beamed ceilings. Immaculate. Beautifully finished and furnished, down to luxurious 600TC 100% cotton linens and towels. We are 100% legal and carry full commercial liability insurance!
On ten acres in a truly pastoral area just south of Asheville. Secluded and nestled in the woods, yet flooded with natural light. Completely private, fenced rose and boxwood garden provides outdoor lounging, dining and fire-siding (firewood and fire starters are provide for all of our guests). Hot water tap in the garden for hillbilly hot-tubbing (kids only!).
Green & allergen-free. No-VOC paints used throughout. Organic, unscented cleaning and laundry products used exclusively. Natural fiber rugs, upholstery and window treatments. Slip-covered upholstery, frequently laundered. No pets of any kind ever inside the home.
COMPLETELY TOBACCO & PET FREE, we also ask that our guests go without aerosols, perfumes, and other scented products during their stay. AC with top-of-the-line filter. Fresh organic and/or local treats only stocked for your enjoyment. DirecTV package includes ESPN.
Family is on the property, out-of-site, but close enough if you need a restaurant recommendation! Our guests' serenity and privacy is our number one priority. The guesthouse is a legal, permitted apartment -- with wired smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, fire dampers, and commercial insurance.
Access: 15-20 minutes to downtown Asheville and the Biltmore. Ten minutes to Blue Ridge Parkway hiking trailheads. Renowned road and mountain biking literally right out your door.
Traveling with young kid(s): We've got a roll-out bed for the little one, plus indoor and outdoor toys for all ages. Drop us a line and we'll prepare for his or her arrival. Kids on the spectrum are especially welcome!
Traveling with a baby or toddler: We are baby/toddler ready! We set up a pack-n-play (purchased new annually) with organic bedding for sleeping. Plus, we've got an infant-to-toddler tub that sits right in the shower, baby's own hooded towel, a high chair and/or toddler seat, and a swing for our littlest travelers.

Why Johanna Carr chose Hoopers Creek
The property offers the ideal mountain experience: Gorgeous views, without the falling-over-a-cliff landscape which usually accompanies it! Secluded, rolling hills dotted with cows, yet close to downtown. Farmland punctuated by mountain and equestrian homes. We've never had a visitor who hasn't commented on the serenity and the beauty of our property.
What makes this Cottage unique
Women traveling alone, or with little ones, can enjoy complete privacy while feeling 100% safe. Families with babies can rest-assured that no infant cries have ever penetrated the sound-proof ceiling!!

My very favorite VRBO!!
My husband, newborn baby, and I stayed here a few days before Thanksgiving 2017 and it was AMAZING!!! The accommodations were so nice, clean, and perfect for us. The owner went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed, and provided so many things for us to use with the baby (pack n play, changing pad, bath tub, baby towel, etc). We absolutely loved it here and can't wait to come back!
Beautiful and clean
Really nice and peaceful time
Clean, Charming & relaxing, it didn’t take long for the modern farmhouse to feel like home, goats were a bonus! We loved being a short drive from downtown, the Biltmore or a major highway, yet still being able to return to the peace and quiet of the countryside. Great space for my wife & I, Johanna was very welcoming, if we get back to Asheville we would gladly stay again.
It’s home away from home, only better!
This was our 2nd stay at this adorable cabin! Although it’s attached to the main house, the driveway and cabin are completely private! The decor makes you feel completely at home. All creature comforts are provided and then some! The owners are on site so if you should have an issue or question, they are close by and address it immediately. Fletcher is a small town feel with Henderson and Asheville a short drive away. Eating at the “Local Joint” is a must! We visit NC every Fall and of all our cabin stays, this is by far our favorite!
Quaint, lovely cottage!!!
My husband and I were looking for a quiet getaway in the mountains and we found it here!!! I am very particular about cleanliness - very few places meet my standards, but this cottage definitely did!! So clean and decorated to perfection. We enjoyed the peace and quiet! An evening by the fire pit outside was just what the doctor ordered. We loved meeting the goats and friendly dog roaming the property; they never bothered any of our things. Johanna was a wonderful host and texted me several times during our trip. We also enjoyed how close this cottage was to restaurants and grocery stores!! Not far at all from Asheville or the Blue Ridge Parkway. We felt at home and we would definitely come back!!
Great for a small family
We loved the location (up the mountain but not too far up) and the views. The owners accommodated a toddler very well: high chair, bath, pack n play, puzzles, and books. We were able to prepare breakfast and dinner with no problem (both Asheville and Hendersonville are close enough for lunch with time to get back for naps), and it was very cozy. The fresh eggs were a definite plus!
15 minutes to Biltmore Estate. 20 minutes to downtown Asheville. 10 minutes to nearest supermarket (Ingles). 13 minutes to the nearest organic market (Earthfare). 10 minutes to a truly great latte.
