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 loveseat, 2 nice leather recliners and a 50" Samsung High Definition Smart TV-so you can access your Netflix account if desired. 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.

Also at the property are 2 other 1 bed/1bath cottages if you have more than 1 couple traveling together. See VRBO #'s 971806 & 971821-both have washer/dryer in unit.

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!

Perfect for weekend getaway or weeklong stay.

  • 5 of 5

After spending only one night in this stone cottage, I can tell you for sure that I now have a go to spot for a visit to Asheville and surrounding towns. It is absolutely the perfect spot for a couple to relax and prop up your feet. It has all the essentials necessary for a short, or longer stay. It's quiet and secluded, and still only a couple minutes away from the highway. There is comfortable seating to watch a movie with that special someone, and a sufficient selection of kitchen tools and cookware for making a homemade meal. If you want a simple place to lay your head and relax for a spell, look no further than this beautiful stone cottage.

Great little place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came to Asheville for the weekend and picked this cute place. We really enjoyed it. It was clean and very comfortable. It was close to restaurants and just a jump to The Biltmore House. It had everything we needed and it was nice having coffee and cream provided for the mornings.

We'll definitely be back and hopefully for a longer stay next time.

Perfect location for us.

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a conference at the Biltmore Estate. This was a great location for proximity to there. We had dinner at Biltmore Park which was super close. Loved our time in Asheville so much that we booked an additional night so we could explore downtown a bit. We will be back next month for a longer stay.

Perfect place for a getaway to Asheville, NC; I loved the layout of the cottage, and the way it was decorated. I had a question for Mr. Varney and he was very prompt to respond. I would highly recommend staying here.
