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!

About Jayne Abbot
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 renting 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.
Jayne Abbot purchased this Cottage in 2003
Why Jayne Abbot chose Reems Creek
I chose to purchase this property back in 2003 because I was drawn to it's unique and beautiful 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. My husband and I plan to return to live in the main house for our retirement, hopefully soon!

Lovely little cottage!
This was a lovely little retreat. Easy drive to Asheville, yet remote. Our dog loved it, too! The grounds and gardens are amazing! We'll be back! Thanks, Jayne!
This is a great place with an owner who takes care of her guests. The bedroom and family room are are super cozy. Our only problem was the cold kitchen floors (it was, however, winter). Our dogs loved the yard and we can't say enough good things about Jayne.
Thank you for your feedback. Glad you and your pups enjoyed your stay. It was particularly cold during your stay, and the colorful concrete floors of the kitchen can tend to reflect the outdoor cold. I'll be sure to recommend slippers for winter stays in the future. I hope you'll be back in the warmer months.
A little slice of relaxation heaven
Clean, cozy, and charming. Jayne even leaves little treats for her human guests and furry guests. Our dog loved the backyard and we loved everything about the cottage. It was a perfect weekend get away, just 15 minutes from downtown. We came to visit Asheville, but also for some much needed rest before the busy holiday season and the Wisteria Cottage served us well.
Cute little cottage
If you have a pet traveling with you, this cottage is a great choice. Its very cozy, and is the perfect size for 2 people. The drive from asheville is short. Everything from treats to blankets to protect the furniture is supplied for your pet. Aside from being super close to our next door neighbors, we loved our stay! Also Jayne is a great host.
The cottage is very welcoming for well-mannered pets and responsible owners. As other guests have noted, the cottage setting is private both inside and outside. If you are seeking seclusion (no neighbors at all) then the Wisteria Cottage is not for you. But if you want quiet, privacy, and a unique cozy space all in a convenient accessible location, then the Cottage will check all those boxes!
Every thought went into providing all the small things needed to make our stay feel like home
Very clean and a lot for your your money. Felt like home.
Super comfortable. Great location for our trip. Very pet friendly!
Accommodations were wonderful. The bed was the best . Our dog enjoyed the fenced backyard. Very peaceful.
Some easily accessible activities include Hiking, whitewater rafting, Grove Park Inn & Spa, Biltmore Estate, North Carolina Arboretum, waterfalls, mountain biking, zip lines, art galleries, & incredible sightseeing along the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway only minutes from the Cottage - it's all here!
