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!!!

Lovely place.

Everything was great. Wrap around porch would be great when it’s warm out. Follow the directions in the bio and you will have no trouble finding the house. Great for couples.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

It was a great place to stay with easy access to all the places we wanted to go to around Asheville and Hendersonville. It was very clean and the although the owners aren't on site, they were very helpful in our travels. Although the place is tucked away a little off the main street, the directions that were provided in the email were excellent (you just have to remember to download them and print them out, I didn't). They even provided plenty of coffee and tea that lasted for our entire 4 day visit and bottled water and snacks for our arrival. In addition, there were many DVDs and books and even local tourist information provided. I would stay here again.

Comfortable, clean, and quiet.
