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 Asheville

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.

Great Little House!!!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a long weekend and we are really glad we found this little gem. It is designed really well to accommodate all of your needs. Cute and efficient. The only issue we had was that it was a really cold weekend, and the house took a while to warm up. Also the washer cannot hold much or the spin cycle won't work well, literally only a couple articles of clothing - not a biggie though. But otherwise, absolutely fantastic and we highly recommend.

Owner's Response: Hi Matt, Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review. We're happy you liked the cottage. We did have near record breaking cold the week end you were there: temps were in the single digits, a rare thing for Asheville! About the washer: our experience is quite different. We routinely (several times a week) wash all the bedding and towels in one load and have never had a problem. I'm not sure what was happening when you used it, but I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

We loved our stay. Where else can you affordably be ten minutes from downtown Asheville and enjoy a quiet stay? Love this place. Will be back.

Cute Cozy Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying in the Cottage on Parkway Look! It is adorable and very clean. It had everything we needed, enough the pots and pans needed for a nice steak dinner! It is a great location, very convenient to shopping, dining, and outdoors activities. The owners are very helpful and quick to respond. When we visit Asheville again, we will definitely book this place again!

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!!
