About the Property
3 Bedroom, 1 bath, Sleeps 6
Come visit Stardust Cottage when you're ready to relax and enjoy your time in the mountains! Just updated with you in mind. The kitchen is stocked with quality cookware.
Escape from your television, but enjoy streaming shows on your computer. Our wifi will keep you connected if you desire.
Babies and Kids Count! We welcome children with toys and games for all ages. We have a pack-n-play, high chair, baby gate, and kid's dinner ware. We appreciate honest guest counts, regardless of guest ages.
Outside amenities include a bubbling creek, and plenty of room to run, keeping children busy for hours! Chill out in our shady hammock. Relax on our covered porch in one of our rocking chairs or on our porch swing while you take in the mountain views. Enjoy the flowers in our garden, or pick herbs for your dinner. Roast marshmallows at our fire pit. If you are here during the cooler fall months, enjoy a cozy fire in the woodstove (we have gas heat, as well). You'll have access to miles of hiking trails right outside our door. Admire a sky full of stars at night, and then fall asleep with the gentle mountain breeze and the sound of the creeks outside.
Quiet and private, our neighbors are not visible or close to the house. You'll need a car- Stardust Cottage is nestled 'back in the holler'!
We may greet you at your arrival, see you off when checking out as we arrive to prepare the cottage for the next guests, or -rarely- during your stay if anything needs attention. Mostly we will leave you to enjoy the peace and privacy we love about this property. We live in Asheville and can assist you by email, phone or in person, if needed. Welcome to the Appalachian mountains!

Asheville is a sophisticated small city in a mountain valley in the southeastern United States. It's a very popular and well known tourist area. The city is very walkable with shops, galleries, and restaurants on every corner. Asheville is know for its foodie culture, including lots of vegetarian choices. The varied nightlife scene and many cultural activities and festivals will keep you busy if you like. The area is also known for its many artists and crafts people. Just south of downtown is the Biltmore House; the largest private residence in the USA. The house and its thousands of acres are open to the public. The Blue Ridge parkway also passes through the area. This is an incredibly scenic drive through the national forests in the area, with world class views, and many interesting stops along the way for hiking, picnicking, looking at waterfalls, or frolicking in the cool mountain streams.
Endless opportunities abound for rafting, rock climbing, and backwoods adventures if outdoors is your thing. There are two ski resorts, each about one hour from Stardust Cottage. Golf is also popular in the area. You can choose to be in the middle of the action, and then out in the middle of nowhere 15 min later!
Closer to Stardust cottage are several organic farms, including flowers and a nationally known herb farm. Potters and crafts people live tucked in their beautiful corner of Sandymush Valley.
Don't let our long backwoods private gravel drive fool you... a beautiful modern well appointed cottage awaits at the end!
Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: Hi! We love meeting new people and trying new things- especially food and travel. We've lived in the Asheville area since our college years, and have two great kids. Western North Carolina is very community-minded and we like to get involved in helping make our wonderful place to live even better. Our family enjoys hiking the trails and cooling off in the streams in the summer, and then catching the incredible vistas on the way home.
Why the Owner Chose Leicester, NC, USA:
