About the Property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 5)

A little bit industrial loft, a little bit rustic retreat, a little bit country cottage -- our guesthouse is perfect for one or two couples, with or without children in tow. Open-concept living/dining/kitchen with polished concrete floors and tall, wood-beamed ceilings. Immaculate. Beautifully finished and furnished, down to luxurious 400TC 100% cotton linens and towels.

On ten acres in a truly pastoral neighborhood 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-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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Full time Mom to three geniuses - ages 12, 10, and 7. Part time interior architect and designer. Part time wife. The property is our ongoing, 20 year project. Chickens were added in 2014 (guests are welcome to their free-range, organic eggs), and goats in 2015. We're planning for a new, larger vegetable garden one of these Springs! We value our guests' privacy and comfort above all. Please don't hesitate to ask for anything you need to make your stay more enjoyable.

Why the Owner Chose Fletcher, NC, USA:
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.
