Perfect Cozy Gerton Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was a perfect getaway for our Christmas vacation. Convenient to many of the sites anyone would want to see in the Asheville area. The soaking tub was divine and living area and kitchen just big enough for 2-4 people. This cabin was also pet-friendly which was very accommodating to us since we usually travel with our pup. Lots of amenities - such as, washer dryer, two bathrooms, and fireplace. We would definitely stay here again.

A truly great mountain getaway!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we were charmed. The home is located in a lovely wooded neighborhood with a beautiful Mountain View from the front porch rockers. Everything you could want or need is furnished. We spent an idyllic week there and we are probably going to make this an annual trip. Also, the location is VERY central to everything this Florida woman goes to the mountains for! Thanks Susan!

Nice place to relax. Out of the way, yet close enough for day trips to attractions.

Immpressive. Relaxing romantic vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Instead of the beach this year my husband and I chose to go to the mountains of North Carolina. Beautiful cabin with all the comforts of home. The cabin has easy access to all the sights in the are. We enjoyed visit to Chimney Rock, Lake Lure, Black Mountain, Bat Cave, and Hendersonville. The Biltmore Estate was a must see and breathtaking. Our geriatric Bull Terrier was very comfortable and looked like he belonged there. We hope to return in the near future as Susan made our stay comfortable. Thanks again. I would recommend anyone wishing to visit the area to rent this cabin. You will not be dissapointed.

Lovely home.

  • 4 of 5

Two family elderly couples, plus pets, rented this house for the month of August 2017. Strenuous walking outdoors up and down the hills.

Quiet neighborhood with pond nearby. To get to grocery stores, liquor stores, any attractions, going east or west, you have to travel 30 min. through sharp winding roads. I loved the drive. Hubby hated it. If you like solitude and calming quiet, this is perfect.

We went into Asheville and Hendersonville several times, finding museums, thrift/antique stores, fresh produce stands. Chimney Rock, The Esmeralda Inn, and Lake Lure were nearby.

About Susan Eggerton

I live in Asheville and am available at any time for specific needs. I have several rental properties so am usually scurrying around tending to one of them!

The house is suitable for kids. In fact it is a great area for children. It is very safe. There is a big field w/ a pavilion that can be used for small groups and a small stream that is great to play in. There is however a pond so supervision is a must!

The Gerton area holds a special place in my heart. We use this house quite often. The community is very welcoming, should you choose to join them in any of their events such as 4th of July fireworks or covered dish suppers.

I am an avid tennis player and love to be outdoors, so am available to set a match for or with you in Asheville! My husband and I ride motorcycles, so should that be your passion as well, we can sure point you to some lovely rides.

I think you will be very comfortable here!

Susan Eggerton purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Susan Eggerton chose Gerton

Gerton is close to Asheville yet this small formerly vacation community still has a very 50's feel, as though you have gone back in time. Peaceful!

What makes this cottage unique

You can't beat this location for a vacation rental! You are 15 minutes from Lake Lure with its restaurants, the beach, boating, golf, tennis courts. Rumbling Bald provides climbers delight. Chimney Rock Park is truly a wonder to see, with great hiking trails. There are also free hiking trails in very close proximity.

Asheville is a 20-30 minute, easy beautiful drive and has a ton of things to do and see. Hendersonville is approx. 30 minutes away, as is Black Mountain.

The house has a lovely deck. The wireless reaches here so enjoy reading or catching up on the news while staring at the mountains each morning. Ahhh.... There is a grill on the deck as well.
