Property description

The 700 sq ft Wisteria Cottage is cozy, charming, quiet and conveniently located. It sleeps up to 4 people: 1 queen bed, 1 futon (these are located in the same room) and 1 twin bed in a small den which is walked through to get to the bathroom (see photos for visual). It is a great space for a couple, or a couple with younger children. It is not suitable for two couples looking for privacy. Location is 10 minutes North of Downtown Asheville, and 5 minutes from the small quaint center of Weaverville. 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. Fully-equipped kitchen to prepare your favorite meal. Eat out on the private patio surrounded by mosaic art designed into the base of the cottage, or choose from one of the many local restaurants only minutes from home.

The Cottage was built by French artists using recycled materials. It is truly a unique and eclectic one of a kind space. Custom touches include a walk-in mosaic tile bath, mosaic tile kitchen counters and custom stenciled floors. The cottage vaulted ceilings make the space light and bright when the velvet curtains are open, and romantic and cozy when drawn. One long-time customer refers to the cottage as 'Velvet Therapy' for all the peace and tranquility it brings to her.

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 beware that very small dogs may not be well-contained).

All you need to bring with you are your clothes, food and your adventurous spirit. Everything else is included!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: I have made Asheville my home since 1995 and would never live anyplace else! I'm an avid outdoorsy type person enjoying hikes in the woods, kayaking, camping, wildflowers, sunsets. In 2003 I purchased the property the Cottage sits on and lived in the main home (Gray house next door) for 12 years where I ran a small dog daycare/boarding/training business out of a 3rd building on the property. I closed that business in 2015 and moved to the Riceville area (East Asheville) with my then fiancé now husband, Stan. I have been running the Cottage mostly as a vacation, occasionally as a long term rental, since it was purchased in 2003. It's very rewarding to provide such a unique and beautiful space for vacationers to the NC mountains. I also love dogs! My other job is organizing and producing dog agility events in NC and TN.

Why the Owner Chose Weaverville, NC, USA:
I chose to purchased this property back in 2003 because I was drawn to it's unique and beautiful handmade one of a kind mosaic artwork from the previous owners who had renovated the property and built the cottage on an existing foundation. The beautiful, quiet, peaceful yet very convenient location cinched the deal. I loved living on the property for 12 years and running a small successful dog daycare/boarding business, as well as managing the cottage as a vacation rental. I do miss living there from time to time.
