Couples love the Cottage! You can bring along kids too for a fun family vacation. Privately situated on 2 acres, conveniently located 10 - 15 minutes from downtown Asheville, and 5 minutes from quaint Weaverville. Cozy, charming, quiet, the Cottage provides a fully equipped kitchen, mosaic tile bath and is far from ordinary. Clever use of recycled materials. Fully fenced pet approved backyard with outdoor dining table for 4. Sleeps up to four,: 1 queen, 1 full size futon - located in same room. Sleeping arrangements suitable for family with one or two young children who can sleep in full sized futon in same room with parents.

The cottage offers easy access to all that Asheville has to offer including the Biltmore Estate, Grove Park Inn and Spa, the Blue Ridge Parkway (15 minutes to all these locations), hikes, waterfalls, mountain biking and glorious mountain vistas. For a real treat, head 25 minutes down the road to Hot Springs, North Carolina for a long and glorious soak in the fresh natural mineral hot springs located on the banks of the French Broad River.
Relax and enjoy the colorful gardens and artistic custom-made features of the Wisteria Cottage. New super comfortable Queen memory foam mattress and a quiet sitting area with recliner chair for relaxing, reading and chilling out as well. There is a flat screen TV, but no cable, just an old fashioned antennae to access some local station. A DVD is provided and there is a Red Box for easy DVD rentals located 1/2 mile from the cottage. Fully-equipped kitchen to prepare your favorite meal. Eat out on the private patio, or choose from one of the many local delicious restaurants only minutes from home. Chilly night, a firepit is provided to enjoy an outdoor fire!
The Cottage was built by French artists using recycled/reused materials such as weathered barn board as accents on the exterior siding and re-installed kitchen cabinets topped with custom mosaic tile counters. They believed strongly in making use of what others deemed not valuable. It is truly a unique and eclectic one of a kind space including a walk-in mosaic tile bath and custom stenciled concrete floor in the kitchen. The cottage vaulted ceilings make the space light and bright during the day, and romantic in the evening.
The cottage is perfect for a romantic, cozy get-away for two, or for a couple with younger children looking to explore Asheville. The cottage is pet friendly, just be sure to let me know you will be bringing a pet (maximum of 2), and be sure to read and abide by some simple pet rules so that I can keep accepting guests furry friends. There is a fenced area for your pet out the back door (picket fence so very small dogs may not be well-contained).
The cottage is tucked in and quiet, with a privacy fence in front and back, a fenced backyard with table, 4 chairs and umbrella, and gardens blooming throughout the spring, summer and fall. The parking area is shared by The Hydrangea House, a 2 bedroom vacation rental also on the property you'll see when parking but is hidden from view when you are in the Cottage/out back in the fenced yard. The cottage location is not in a walkable friendly neighborhood (no sidewalks and narrow shoulder) but it's an easy few minute drive to Weaverville where you can park and walk the neighborhood behind main street as well as the walking trail around Lake Louise, a short stroll from town. Lake Louise also offers a fitness area, children's playground and lots of ducks and turtles!
I do not live on the property but am around many times during the week for yard maintenance and to check in with guests if you are not out exploring Asheville and the surrounding area. Everyone is welcome at the Cottage, I am lifestyle friendly. I am only a short distance away on the East side of Asheville, and available by phone/text should you have any questions.
All you need to bring with you are your clothes, food and your adventurous spirit. Everything else is included!
