About the property

Stone Cottage in super convenient location near Biltmore Park & Blue Ridge Pkwy!


Asheville Retreat Cottages...super nice cottages located smack in the middle of everything you want to do in Asheville!!!! NO MORE THAN 2 GUESTS ALLOWED per cottage!! We want to keep this little community exclusive for individuals seeking a quiet, relaxing time away from their normal busy lives.

This property is conveniently located just minutes from Biltmore Park and only 15 minutes from downtown Asheville in the Avery Creek/Arden community. Biltmore Park has lots of restaurants, shops, entertainment, a great movie theater, spa and more. The Blue Ridge Parkway is only 3 miles away and a great place for hikes and sightseeing. The NC Arboretum is only 3 miles away and is great for hiking, biking and exploring the beautiful gardens. Zen Tubing is just 2 miles down the road at the French Broad River. This is absolutely a must do activity for all ages. The new Outlet Mall is only 5 miles away and has shopping for everyone! The Biltmore House is just 15 minutes away and another must do in Asheville. Plan at least 5 hours though because you will want to explore everything on the estate...just beautiful!

Whether you are coming to Asheville to hike, bike, fish, tub, sightsee, shop, explore or relax, this location is close to everything!

Truly a home away from home, this rock cottage is in a very small community with only 5 units (this one being 1/2 of a duplex). You will find all the conveniences needed for a few nights or a few months.

While this rental only has 1 bedroom and 1 bath, it is newly renovated with a spacious eat-in kitchen & living room. The livingroom has a comfy couch with chaise and a 49" high def TV. The bedroom is spacious with a comfy queen sized bed. The covered wrap around front porch with outside dining set and 2 nice lounge chairs to relax after a day of sightseeing.

Also, we have another property right next door that has a washer/dryer (nice for longer stays) and is a bit more spacious if you need more room. It's VRBO #364721.

About Bruce Varney

My wife and I have several vacation rentals that I manage. She is a licensed real estate broker specializing in vacation rentals and 2nd homes as well as working with people relocating to this area.

We love creating a special place for our guests to enjoy.

Bruce Varney purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Bruce Varney chose Smoky Mountains

This property is where my wife grew up so it holds a special place in our hearts. It is perfect for someone between homes or just looking to visit for a few days.

What makes this cottage unique

This home is in the small community of only 5 homes so has privacy yet is just minutes away from the fun Asheville has to offer!

Charming cottage with all we needed for our brief stay. We knew the bed would be high from reviews and laughed over it but found it very comfortable. This is the only thing keeping me from recommending the cottage to older family members when they visit the area. Perhaps a step stool?

Very comfortable home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Easy to find, very comfortable bed, kitchen well equipped and spacious. Comfortable living room with nice large tv with all the sports channels my partner desires as well as Netflicks to enjoy movies. Several DVDs available as well as books and lots of local information and maps which was very helpful. WiFi was great, but I had no cell signal; although my partner did as he has a different carrier. Bathroom had lots of towels. Loved having all wood floors!

convenient cottage

  • 4 of 5

The hosts were able to meet our soecial needs, which we appreciate. the house had everything we needed (except for a vegetable scrub brush).

The house is cute, the porch would be charming with a good sweeping

We didn't realize that everything we needed within a few minutes, very convenient!

Just what the doctor ordered!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were seeking some solitude and quiet. This little cottage was just what the doctor ordered. Small, but large enough for the two of us. The kitchen is well stocked for the meals we cooked. The bedroom is comfortable (although I needed steps to sit on the bed:) ). We really enjoyed the selection of DVDs for the rainy afternoons we experienced. We were close to Asheville, and the new Biltmore Park area offers several restaurants and stores. This was a ideal choice for a couple who wanted a peaceful and relaxing week away. We would definitely stay again. Very enjoyable.
