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!!!! 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 has an outside dining set to relax with a drink 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.

About Darcy Varney

I am from the Asheville area and Bruce is from California. He relocated to Asheville to be closer to his daughter in 2010. 2 days after arriving in Asheville we met and fell in love immediately! Since getting married in 2011, our love for the beach took us to St Croix, USVI where we decided we were too far away from our 4 children. In 2017 we moved back to the states and landed in Hilton Head SC.

We visit Asheville regularly and love the mountains as much as we do the ocean!!

Darcy Varney purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Darcy Varney chose Arden

This property is where I grew up so it holds a special place in our hearts. It is perfect for a quick getaway or an extended stay.

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

The location is AWESOME!! Close proximity to south Asheville, Biltmore Park, the Blue Ridge Parkway, French Broad River and Airport. This property offers off the main path privacy yet is smack in the middle everything! The perfect combination for a vacation getaway!!!

The Stone Cottage was perfect for a long weekend in the Asheville area. We enjoyed visiting the Biltmore, Downtown Asheville, Biltmore Park, NC Farmers Market, NC Arboretum, and the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Nice place, good location.

  • 3 of 5

My wife and I stayed here one Saturday night in September. It has some nice amenities. The porch is a great place to sit and have a drink and chat. The space comes off as very clean, it's well maintained, the bed is clean and comfortable, but overall the place is a little dark and musty. Not terribly so, it was just noticeable for me and my wife used her inhaler a couple times (she has allergies). That said we enjoyed it and it fit our needs. The price was a little high for me but I think that may just be the overall market - I didn't see any deals much better in the area. The location was good. The Biltmore shops nearby made takeout (or eating out) easy and the Blue Ridge Parkway and Arboretum were nice to have close by.

Owner's Response: As an owner, it's heartbreaking to get a 3 star review, especially when the unit was completely updated just a few weeks ago. This guest only stayed one night so that was from 4pm to 11am. This particular night we had heavy rains so I'm sure that was the "darkness" in the unit. Normally, this home has lots of natural light coming in if you have the blinds and drapes open. If you have them all closed for privacy, each room has 3 lights except the bathroom which only has 2. In response to the musty smell, the entire home was deep cleaned and repainted during the renovation. I nor my cleaning person smells a musty smell. Allergies may be flared up because this area is experiencing high levels of pollen with fall coming on. Regardless, I respect all guests opinions but in this case, there is nothing I can do to remedy anything. As always, we strive to give the best place for the best value and will continue working hard to do that.
