Our Guests say it better than we can!
'Gardener's Cottage' is located in Historic Flat Rock on the Beckon Ridge Estate. Overlooking a picture perfect pond, you will feel the stress drain from your soul as you listen to the sound of water running downstream and watch the fish swim casually about. How can this special place be so close to town?
Inside you will find the 1 BR & 1 bath cottage comfortable and cozy. Downstairs is a fully equipped kitchen and dining area overlooking the pond & living room with 32 inch flat screen TV. The furniture is comfortable and practical.
Up the spiral stair (or the exterior steps) is the lovely bedroom with queen sized bed and bathroom with stall shower and laundry area. The cottage has central air and heat and is bright and airy.
Sit outside the bedroom on the small covered balcony to enjoy your morning coffee, evening cocktail or to read a book. It is a lovely private space overlooking the pond, dam and grounds.
While walking along the stream & around the pond (you may stay on the paved drive if you prefer), remember to stop for a bit to sit on a bench or one of the landscape walls and notice how nature surrounds you. The wonderful wildlife and foliage is not to be missed.
If you come by motorcycle, you probably know that this whole area is a Bikers Bonanza with great rides in all directions! Cruise Little River Rd, to Crab Creek to Dupont Forest or to Pisgah Forest and the ultimate...the Blue Ridge Parkway. (For your convenience, covered bike parking is gladly provided at the main house.)
All that Historic Flat Rock has to offer, the shops at Little Rainbow Row, Carl Sandburgs Connemara Farm, the goats, the Playhouse are all less than 2 miles away...and Hendersonville's historic Main Street is only 3 miles away, with many excellent restaurants, shops, and exhibits...and Saluda, The Green River Gorge with kayaking, tubing, waterfalls fishing and - ZIP LINES OVER THE TREES- all within a half hours drive. Breweries and Wineries abound!
You know, when the Gardener ran off with the Maid, we were concerned... But The Maids Quarters have been rented, and the Gardeners Cottage is ready for your arrival; so give us a call. OUR CALENDAR IS KEPT UP TO DATE - BOOK NOW!
*The owners live in the main house. They enjoy their privacy and they will respect yours.

FOR 2017: AGAIN, we are proud to partner with our neighbors, the renowned Flat Rock Playhouse to offer our Stay and Play Special . When making your reservation, mention the Stay & Play Special to guarantee best seating available. The Mainstage Flat Rock Playhouse is just a mile or so from The Cottage!
We are formerly from the Catskill Mountains and Long Island in NY. When the kids moved on, we did too! We are semi retired and from the mountains, so WNC was an easy transition. We are just loving it here and hope you will too. We manage our property without pesticides. We raise Honeybees and Free ranging, organically fed Chickens and have been planting fruit trees all around our 8+ acres. We have stepped it up by taking over the management of the Flat Rock Farmers Market for the FR Merchants Association. We hope you visit it while you are here at the Gardener's Cottage at Beckon Ridge. Memberships include: The Henderson County Beekeepers and The Hendersonville Hens as well as the Chamber and the Merchants Association.
Victor & Darlene purchased this cottage in 2012
We fell in love with this home and with Flat Rock. We are pleased to offer Gardener's Cottage for your vacation stay.
The grounds, the pond, the stream, distance to town, watching the water over the dam. You too will love Gardener's Cottage.
My husband and I stayed at the Cottage in Flat Rock over a long weekend, and we had a wonderful stay. The cottage itself is very private, clean and comfortable. The cottage is charming and tucked away on a picture-perfect pond. We were able to enjoy the chimea and relax outside. The cottage is close to great hiking trails and many terrific restaurants in Flat Rock and downtown Hendersonville. Victor and Darlene were wonderful hosts. They took the time to provide us with many personalized recommendations, tell us about the town and history of the town and the house, and even provided our dog with a special locally-made dog treat. We highly recommend the Flat Rock Cottage, and cannot wait to visit again!
Our few days at the gardeners cottage was perfect. The location was quiet and very peaceful. The cottage had everything we needed and Victor and Darlene could not have been more accommodating. We look forward to our next visit to the cottage.
this cozy cottage is immaculately clean and very well appointed with very nice towels and sheets. the carl sandburg house around the corner is a fantastic spot (recommended by victor) and also nearby are many great hiking areas. we had great meals both in flat rock and downtown hendersonville at places recommended by victor- they have loads of great information about the area in the cottage- and also cooked/grilled several great meals at the cottage and relaxed by the chimea fire. it was a perfect long weekend and we will definitely be back!
We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful cottage in Flat Rock. The cottage was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. Victor and Darlene had also provided special little touches such as freshly laid eggs and some local goodies which were much appreciated. The cottage is close to places to eat, supermarkets and the lovely town of Hendersonville . We also very much enjoyed the peaceful location Which allowed us to relax after a busy day out and about. There are plenty of things to do in the area, and a highlight for us was the view from the top of Chimney Rock, which was quite breathtaking. Unfortunately we were only in the area for 4 nights which was not enough, so we will definitely have to return in the future!
The cottage is perfect, from the comfort and personal touches in the interior, to the beautiful grounds the cottage sits on. The owners added so many extra touches to make us feel right at home and the cottage had everything we could need. The owners provide much information about surrounding area activities, and great suggestions. The surrounding area of Flat Rock was a delightful town with wonderful restaurants and Asheville not far away for even more restaurants and shopping. Most importantly, my husband and I were able to relax and enjoy ourselves on this beautiful property. We hope to visit again soon. We were delighted.
We found the Flat Rock Cottage to be perfect for our stay with our 2 Chihauhaus. Everything was so clean and the kitchen was outfitted with all we needed. The hosts Victor and Darlene went above and beyond with welcome gifts of wine, Jan, honey,cookies and dog treats for our dogs. We felt like we were staying at an Inn with their attentiveness to our needs. We would definitely return in we have the opportunity.
Gardeners Cottage is only 2 miles to The Carl Sandburg National Historic Site, the Flat Rock Playhouse, The Cinema, restaurants, golf, and Main Street Hendersonville with all its shops and nightlife.
Within a couple of miles you can patronize any number of good eating and drinking establishments, some with live entertainment on weekend nights. And you are only a few minutes from the supermarket or the food co-op for organic foods.
In addition to hiking trails and the House Tour, the Sandburg site, (aka Connemara Farm) is steeped in Civil War history. And be sure to see their nationally recognized goat herd. Of course the Dupont Forest, is just a short drive and The Green River Gorge with tube rentals and easy access for fishing and kayaking is just 30 minutes south. Zipline over the forest - AMAZING!
There is just so much to see and do around here in any season. The only problem is that once you find the hammock, you may not want to get up and go anywhere!
Private, but not isolated, Gardeners Cottage is right smack dab where you want to be!
