WE ARE STRIVING TO KEEP OUR RATES LOW AND TERMS HASSEL-FREE!

Please note that VRBO/HomeAway began a new policy in 2016 of charging guests a service fee for all confirmed reservations. Please note... There is an added credit card processing fee of 2.9% when guests opt out of the free eCheck option when paying for reservations.

Our guests have complained to us about the new service fee charges that VRBO/HomeAway has initiated. Rest assured that we are listening and we are not happy with the added fee! As hosts, we have no control over the expense that have been imposed on our guests. Please contact the vacation rental website if you have questions or concerns.

To defray the cost of the added service fee we have decided to include the newly enforced Occupancy Tax into our rates! Our guests will only be charged for 7% NC State and local tax. Please note that guests are NOT required to pay any taxes for reservations >90 days.

Cleaning fees -Short-term reservations $75; Long-term reservations $125 for 30-89 nights; $175 for 90+ days.

Car: Recommended

The Red Cottage is nestled on Montreat Rd, the main road that links Black Mountain to the town of Montreat. Turn right on Montreat Road and in less than 1 mile you will reach downtown Black Mountain 'The Front Porch of WNC' or turn left and in one mile you arrive at the gates of Montreat -small towns that offer a host of big city attractions!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Before moving to Black Mountain we spent many vacations and long weekends sightseeing, rock climbing, hiking and camping (a nudge for all you climbers, hikers and bikers). We loved the area so much that we decided to move from Augusta, Ga. to Black Mountain when our daughter started kindergarten. Twenty years later our daughter is attending the MSW graduate program at WNC and we are still in awe with the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the seasonal climate, entertainment, special events and countless sightseeing attractions.

Why the Owner Chose Black Mountain, NC, USA:
After months of searching for the perfect vacation rental property in Black Mountain we came across this beautiful 1920 red cedar siding cottage (hence, The Red Cottage). Its large front porch is set back from an old weeping-willow and a spectacular hickory nut shade tree. It was love at first sight! The Red Cottage is a sweet vacation rental home and we feel certain that it will exceed your needs and expectations!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The Red Cottage is located equally between the towns of Black Mountain and Montreat. Less than 1 mile in either direction you will find many attractions that are normally featured in larger cities. Downtown Black Mountain has outstanding gift shops, restaurants, taverns, a Farmers Market, sweets, coffee shops and much, much more. Within a short distance you will find the Black Mountain Golf Course and mini golf for kids of all ages. Lake Tomahawk has an outdoor swimming pool, tennis courts, croquet court, free concerts and a facility that can be rented for private events. Seasonal festivals, such as The Lake Eden Arts Festival (LEAF) and Sourwood Festival have been vacation attractions for many years. Montreat College is an independent, Christian based 4-year liberal arts school. The Montreat Conference Center hosts religious conferences throughout the year. Montreat also has a gift shop, great hiking trails, creeks and preserved woodland areas. There are churches of various denominations just a short walk from The Red Cottage. Visit during the fall and take your car, motorcycle or bicycle along the Blue Ridge Parkway. The spectacular views, waterfalls and brilliant colors of the falls leaves are sights that you wouldn't want to miss out on! If you choose to venture out for the big city -historical Asheville is just 16 miles west on I-40! Asheville also offers many attractions -The Arboretum, Biltmore House, Thomas Wolfe Center, Civic Center, River Arts District, museum, playhouses, shopping malls... The 'Drum Circle' and 'Friday-After-5' are annual family events in downtown Asheville during the late spring and summer months. Specialty shops and breweries are plentiful. For outdoor adventures we have countless hiking and bike trails, rock climbing, and skiing. Nearby ziplines, paddling, camping, fishing, WNC Nature Center, hot air balloon rides...the list goes on! Check out Information and brochures are available when you check-in.
