Outside the cottage there is a peaceful shade garden with a rose covered gazebo in which you can swing, listen to the creek and watch the birds and butterflies. Guests are welcome to enjoy and roam through the beautiful flower gardens. You also have a lovely outdoor sitting area right by your back door, perfect for enjoying your morning coffee or sipping a glass of evening Chardonnay and stargazing the sequined night sky without light pollution. There's also a wonderful barbecue, chiminea and hammock area right by your own private creek.
This cottage is a perfect getaway for a romantic weekend, soulful retreat, girl’s time together or just a quiet, peaceful place to let go of the challenges of one’s life and return to the simple joys of existence and beauty. The owners are recording artist, cellist and conductor, Ron Clearfield, and his wife, fine artist Rachel Clearfield. There is an abundance of creative energy on this property for anyone who needs a place to find that seed of inspiration for their next book, album or painting. Without a doubt, this is a paradise for painters, photographers and nature lovers or just anyone who is looking for a beautiful, fulfilling time in the mountains.

Our cottage is definitely children friendly. We have three children and two grandchildren (both under three) who have stayed there. A reminder though, the cottage has an abundance of fine art and only you, the parents, know if a situation like that would be appropriate for your child....moreless

Why the Owner Chose Leicester, NC, USA:
We actually built this guest cottage just recently. A labor of love, situated on our beautiful land; a place to share with others who are looking for something unique. We chose nearby Asheville because Asheville rocks! Incredible restaurants, entertainment and always fun things to do and people to see. They don't call it the 'Paris' of the south for nothing!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We've personally stayed many times in the cottage and have always been impressed with how peaceful, esthetically inspiring, quiet and restful our stay was.
