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.

perfect cottage stay

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!

5 star vacation

  • 5 of 5

Ric & Cathy are two great individuals. From day one to the end of our wonderful experience they were always there if needed.

The cottage was very clean and had all the items needed for our visit. If you want a private setting this is the property you need to book.

The property is everything described and more, from sitting on the front porch in the am watching deer or watching the tremendous sunset over the mountain view.

Highly recommended to all that want to experience and have a lifetime memory. Thank you Ric & Cathy

Pastoral with modern conveniences

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were visiting the Tryon International Equestrian Center with our dog, Dustin. Our hosts Kathy and Ric were gracious and particularly helpful with directions. Our GPS deposited us at their house instead of the cottage, a short distance away, but they took everything in stride.

The cottage itself is perfect for two people. A small one-bedroom house, it can accommodate 4 by using the sofa bed in the living room. The bathroom is a little small, so it would have to be 4 people who know each other pretty well.

The cottage has all the modern conveniences, including overhead fans for hot days, excellent air conditioning, a good-sized refrigerator and basic plates, utensils and cooking gear. The flat screen TV was great, because my Michigander husband was able to watch his favorite team play.

The setting is very quiet, looking across a fenced pasture that has been appropriated by deer. They never failed to come out to graze in the morning and in the evening. It drove our poor dog crazy, because we quickly learned that he'd take off after them. After that, all walks were on the leash (that's the "poor dog" part).

There was a lot of rain in the forecast, but Kathy assured us that a local micro-climate shielded the area compared with surrounding towns. It turned out she was exactly right. We did get rain, but not nearly as much as nearby areas.

The cottage is quite close to a grocery store and other amenities, as well as convenient for the Tryon Equestrian Center. I have no reservations recommending this little slice of heaven for those who seek peace and serenity.

A perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a quiet weekend to rest and recharge our batteries - this place was really perfect. Clean, quiet, and tucked away in a peaceful setting. Our hosts were very hospitable and willing to help make our stay enjoyable. We felt "far away" from the usual busy routine, yet 3 minutes to the grocery store and close to restaurants.

Thank you Ms. Kathy! We look forward to coming again!
