Why Matthew Calrk chose Smoky Mountains

We purchased this property from our neighbors in 2000. The views were quite inspiring! We considered a long-term rental but then realized we needed to do a gut-renovation. We started in late 2005 and finished the renovation in 2007.We have been renting the Suite as a short-term vacation rental ever since. Our home is also on the property but you will never see us unless you want to. We are usually "around" should you need any assistance. Your complete privacy, however, is assured.

What makes this cottage unique

The Suite is very convenient to downtown Asheville and The Blue Ridge Parkway. And the view? Unbelievable!

Spectacular views and great attention to detail

  • 5 of 5

Bittersweet cottage had everything we could have needed and more. The views are amazing, close proximity to downtown and the bilmore, plus access to blueridge gave us quick access to fantastic hikes. The bed was very comfortable and owners provided all the comforts you'd expect at a 5 star hotel (fresh fruit, eggs, pastry, coffee, plenty of towels, soap...). Owners gave us great suggestions and made themselves available in case we needed anything. The attention to detail on the cottage is mind blowing, matt and steven have made this an amazing getaway. Thank you both, we look forward to coming back and enjoying the suite again soon!

The Sweetest Hide-A-Way

  • 5 of 5

We knew it wouldn't disappoint. When my husband and I had a few days to visit we'd check out availability and this sweet little suite was always reserved, so.......when we finally were able to stay here we knew we'd be in for a special visit. Just far enough from downtown Asheville to get the feel of the mountains but really not far from anything you want to do in the city. The suite was very clean and had anything you could possibly need for your stay there. Matt was very welcoming and helped us with restaurants, etc. Keep this place in mind for a special memory! Can't wait to come back and enjoy that beautiful view again.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The place is so charming and the perfect get away! Matthew was wonderful and even stocked our fridge of a few morning necessities. You don't need to worry about bringing much because it's all there at the cottage! We can't wait to go back!!!
