About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom/1 Bath with 5 Stall Barn and Paddocks Available

Bronze Ridge Cottage is a peaceful and private place, nestled on a hillside over looking the Pacolet Valley, near the town of Tryon, NC. The property is part of a 40 acre horse farm which is located within a 160 acre land conservancy comprising of mostly a hardwood forest. With beautiful views across the valley to the Blue Ridge Mountains, this property is ideal for special occasion getaways, so close to nature but close to all the amenities that our beautiful area has to offer. For the equestrian we offer either stalls in our barn or an outside paddock area, if you wish to bring your horse to enjoy the many horse events at the nearby Tryon International Equestrian Center, FENCE Equestrian Center, Harmond Field. Dupont Forest is less than an hour drive away with all it's natural beauty and network of horse, hiking and biking trails, as is Pisgah National Forest.

The small towns of Landrum, SC, Tryon and Columbus, NC are just a short drive and offer many shops, restaurants and markets. Along with many antique stores these small town communities are ideal for a stroll, a little shopping, and a bite of lunch or dinner. Other nearby attractions include: Lake Lure, the mountain village of Saluda, Lake Lanier, Lake Adger, Pearsons Falls, White Oak Mountain, Palmetto Trail and the cities of Hendersonville and Ashville, NC to the North. Though the area is known as "horse country", it also boasts of many fine golf courses which are open to the public. One such course is Red Fox Country Club which is almost directly across the street from the main entrance to the property. During summer months tubing and kayaking can be enjoyed on the nearby Green River.

The cottage is ideal for a couple, pets will be considered and boarding of horses is an additional charge.

We were so happy with the cottage that we canceled our second reservation at another place to come and stay our last week here again. Clean, perfect condition and great views. Thanks Kathy & Ric!

Absolutely beautiful! Such a peaceful getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for wide open space to relax, drink coffee on the porch and unwind while still having lots to do (like hiking) accessible. The cottage was EXACTLY that. This is the kind of place that is good for the soul. We enjoyed porch sitting and walks around the property as much as we enjoyed checking out the local water falls, restaurants and breweries. Our pup absolutely loved running around as well. If you have horses, the cottage is a must! The owners are very hospitable and wonderfully nice. They have a heart for their land and it shows. Definitely recommend! We plan to return.
