About Tim Gott and Muffi Brown

Tim grew up in the area, and Muffi has lived here for over 30 years. We both went to Warren Wilson College in Swannanoa, and love the outdoors and all that this area has to offer. We have one son (20) who is in college.

Tim Gott and Muffi Brown purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Tim Gott and Muffi Brown chose Smoky Mountains

This building was originally constructed as a wood-working shop, and when introduced to us, we fell in love with it and the location, and immediately saw the potential for a wonderful living space. We're both builders, so we took on the renovation ourselves, and added a bathroom addition, porch, and upstairs bedroom with a dormer and half-bath. We built custom kitchen cabinets, and had a great time furnishing, and creating a cozy living space.

What makes this cottage unique

We love the tall windows, light space, and wonderful 'small home' feel of this place. It's in a quiet wooded neighborhood, extremely convenient to Asheville and it's amenities, and just minutes from the Parkway and surrounding area attractions.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved your little cottage! The location was great for getting around the entire Asheville area - short drives to Biltmore, downtown, hiking, Blue Ridge Parkway, and Black Mountain. However the quiet wooded location gave the sense of seclusion away from any hustle & bustle. The cottage was nice and clean and the kitchen was totally equipped with everything we needed. This was just what we needed to relax. I would love to stay here next time I'm in the area and have already been raving to friends & family!

Perfect get away

  • 5 of 5

This Cottage had everything you could possibly need and the location was perfect. 10 minute trip to Asheville you were right off the Blue Ridge Parkway location could not have been better. The owners did a fabulous job on this small cottage very clean and cozy. We will definitely be returning to this same cottage in the future.

Wonderful location and owners

  • 5 of 5

My brother and I had the pleasure of staying at the Cottage for a week. It's a perfect location for someone looking to enjoy Asheville and the surrounding area. It's an easy drive to Downtown and seconds away from the Blue Ridge Parkway. There is also quick interstate access if you're looking to explore further into the surrounding area. All of this while the property itself feels quiet and secluded.

We felt like we had everything we needed during our week at the Cottage, but Tim and Muffi were responsive and proactive making sure we were comfortable in our stay and aware of local utilities issues.

We will most definitely be returning to the Cottage on our next trip to Asheville.

The cottage is in a quite neighborhood, within 10 minutes of Asheville's numerous amenities. There are many restaurants, music venues, art and craft exhibits, shops, micro-breweries, recreational opportunities, etc. within a few minutes drive. The famous Biltmore estate is 6.5 miles away. The Blue Ridge Parkway is one mile away, with access to many scenic views, and hikes. For a special, relaxing experience, the Shoji Spa is less than a mile up the road. The NC Arboretum is 13 mi. Away, and many mountain biking and hiking trails at nearby Bent Creek. There are spectacular waterfalls accessible from the parkway, and at nearby Dupont State Forest and Pisgah National Forest. Way too many opportunities to list!!
