About the property

Very convenient, clean, beautiful cottage at a reasonable price



Welcome to our beautiful Country Home, ready to give you peace, leisure, and tranquility in a location that can’t be beat. Located on the Mt. Mitchell Corridor, centrally between Burnsville, Spruce Pine, and Mt. Mitchell, in the heart of Yancey County, NC, this house provides clean and comfortable accommodation at a reasonable price. Less than 50 miles from Asheville and Johnson City TN, this is just a few minutes drive from golfing, horseback riding, hiking, biking, canoeing, camping, fishing, and hunting.

Come relax with your family or friends in this very clean and well kept house offering a huge, well maintained, grassy yard and plenty of room to get outside, a spacious front porch with chairs for relaxing, as well as a covered gazebo and large deck in the back with table and chairs for barbecuing, relaxing, or just enjoying a private dinner.

Take advantage of free Wi-Fi with high speed internet, and cable TV. Linens (bed, bath, and kitchen) are provided free as well. A washer and dryer is available for your use in the downstairs area.

There are three bedrooms, one with a queen bed, and two with full beds. If you need more sleeping space, the downstairs family room has a queen sofa sleeper. It has one bath and a full sized kitchen stocked with cooking utensils, a stove, refrigerator, microwave, and oak kitchen table to accommodate four. The semi-formal living room draws you back to a more relaxed time with furnishings to sit and visit, enjoy some “alone time” in a very quiet and comfortable setting, or share a movie or TV show on the 32' flatscreen TV with cable.

About Bill Fender

Hi, although I am once retired, I have eagerly taken on the vacation rental business. My wife and I have lived here all our lives. We love to travel and when the opportunity came to help provide others a great travel experience, we jumped at it. Sharing this property with you is now my job, or passion.

I am the Owner/Manager, Check-in Clerk, Maintenance Person, Grounds Keeper, and most everything else. I will help and assist anything else you may need during your stay. That's it, my job is helping people, and I love it.

This house was built in 1971 by my wife's mother as their home. It was loved and cared for since by her, being lovingly decorated with many handmade pieces along the way. After her passing in 2011, we grasped the opportunity to share this special and unique home with the public. It has had some great renovations made to accomodate families and guests. She also loved her dog, so Country Home is pet friendly for small dogs under 20 pounds.

Bill Fender purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Bill Fender chose Blue Ridge Mountains

This property is in a great location, minutes from Burnsville and Spruce Pine, as well as close to Mt. Mitchell, and many other activities. It is a beautiful 'country home' situated near Highway 80S for easy access. The home offers a big yard, porches, and a gazebo for entertaining of relaxing. This is a most reasonably priced property just far enough out of town to enjoy the country atmosphere and mountain area with the conveniences of town.

What makes this cottage unique

Country Home is in a small rural community, with all the charm, peace, and comfort you expect. Cool evenings on the front porch just watching the traffic go by, or dinner on the gazebo listening to the birds are equally as inviting. Take a short walk around the spacious yard, or take a ride to town. During the day, enjoy all the attractions possible, and sleep well at night as the day cools off.

Country Home is great for couples, families, or small groups wanting to cook, dine, and relax together.

Fall Color Adventure

  • 5 of 5

Wife and I rented this spacious well maintained rental for our Fall Color Adventure. We wasn't disappointed at all. We would for sure rent this again. The price was the best We have seen. Had everything we needed and more.

Bill wasn't around but was a phone call away if needed. We want to thank Bill for the veterans discount. We have rented from VRBOs before and most do not give any discounts. We traveled the Blue Ridge Parkway from Blowing Rock to the top of Mt. Mitchell. Our GPS brought us right to the rental. Keep up the good work Bill. Have a nice Holiday Season.

Awesome Thanksgiving Experience

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Country Cottage to be near family, living in Burnsville, to celebrate Thanksgiving for the 1st time in the mountains with them. This house was absolutely perfect; in location, cleanliness, safety, size and $$. I could go on forever, but won't. Just suffice to say.......if you are ever in need of a cozy mountain home anywhere in the Burnsville area, do not pass this one up if it is available.

Cozy Country Cottage Thanksgiving Stay

  • 5 of 5

I live less than 4 miles from this cottage and pass it every day on my way to work. I had a lot of family in for the Thanksgiving holiday and needed a place for "overflow". The cottage was a perfect solution. It's on a flat piece of land which is good for my flat lander relatives, was exceptionally clean and had plenty of instructions on operating anything in the house. A real plus is that the cottage has a land line. Most out-of-towners will not get service on their cellphones in this area so it was a great way to stay in touch. The owner is very friendly and accommodating. I have already told many locals about what a perfect spot it is for company.

Owner's Response: Thanks. We host quite a few folks visiting other families. It gives you a close locale, privacy, and independence. Glad you had a great Thanksgiving.
