Are the Mountains of Western North Carolina calling you? If so, then Mountain Ridge Cottage can be your special retreat.

The master bedroom offers a kingsize tempurpedic mattress and opens to the back deck. The downstairs bedroom and bath is an added bonus of privacy from the upstairs bedrooms and living area. Outdoor living space includes a front porch complete with rocking chairs and a large deck that expands the length of the house. The location provides an opportunity to experience quiet, country living or an adventurous day of exploring the outstanding natural resources and outdoor recreation. Surrounded by native trees with a majestic mountain view makes this private but not secluded home a desirable vacation spot.

There are many attractions in the mountains of western North Carolina and some are a short day trip away. Attractions close by include: downtown Hendersonville (11 miles), downtown Brevard (14 miles), Dupont State Forest, (12 miles), Chimney Rock, Biltmore House, Lake Lure, Pisgah National Forest, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Brevard Music Center, Flatrock Playhouse, and downtown Asheville (25 miles). Transylvania County is known as 'the land of waterfalls' and each offers a unique experience. Within a few miles are excellent golf courses including Cummings Cove and Etowah Valley Country Club and Golf Resort which is rated by Golf Digest. Mountain Ridge Cottage has a stunning long-range mountain view including Mt. Pisgah, Blue Ridge Mountains, Pisgah National Forest and the French Broad River Valley. Henderson and Transylvania counties boast a multitude of festivals, music venues and farmers markets which are ingrained in the mountain culture.

Mountain Ridge Cottage sits on 5 acres of wooded privacy at approximately 2900 ft. altitude. You can enjoy the secure feeling afforded by this small subdivision of nice homes and great neighbors. Sit on the front porch in the morning and enjoy the sounds of a new day dawning or sit on the back deck in the evening and view the night stars. It is a choice place for a week-end getaway with family or friends or even for a long term stay.

If you need a place to renew, restore, and reconnect with the things you value, Mountain Ridge Cottage can be your opportunity to re-create.

About Judson and Hilda Rives

We are a retired couple with a long work history in law enforcement, education and health care. We have enjoyed vacations in the mountains of western North Carolina for many years and often thought it would be a great place to retire. After 2 years of looking for just the right place that we both could be satisfied with, our Realtor helped us discover Mountain Ridge Cottage on Turkey Creek. Now we enjoy an active life in Louisiana and can also retreat to a slower pace and cooler place in the mountains.It has been a real reprieve for us. The glory of the Lord abounds in these mountains and is time well spent. We hope to share our mountain home with others who desire to slow down and reconnect with what is important.

Judson and Hilda Rives purchased this House in 2013

Why Judson and Hilda Rives chose Crab Creek

Hendersonville and Brevard are both small towns that offer a quality of life we find appealing. The people are friendly and there is a wide variety of places to explore and experience. Our desire was to own a mountain retreat we could enjoy with our children and grandchildren. We felt at home from the moment we drove up to the property on Turkey Creek Drive. The stunning mountain view from the deck was the real draw. The Turkey Creek Drive community is a safe place that offers an opportunity for both of us to enjoy and pursue our interest. Our home is private yet not secluded as we can be at the grocery store in 5 minutes or the Asheville Airport in 20 minutes.

What makes this House unique

Mountain Ridge Cottage offers an opportunity for visitors to enjoy the quiet , simple peace of country living yet with all the amenities of home. It is our intent to offer families and friends a place to gather and enjoy each other at an affordable price so that they may return. We hope that each person who stays at Mountain Ridge Cottage feels renewed and re-energized when they leave. The Cottage offers a cheerful, warm, feeling from the moment you drive up. The cottage has been updated with new appliances, beautiful hardwood and porcelain flooring throughout, Sony flat screen TV, and access to a complete laundry room downstairs. The kitchen is fully equipped for short or long term stays. Cooking in or eating out will be your preference. The beds are comfortable and the king size bed has a Tempurpedic mattress....oh so restful. The cottage is in a safe area and is apart from traffic and noise. The house and grounds are clean and well-kept as a cleaning service is used after each guest departs. Outdoor living space is available facing the east in the morning and the west in the afternoon. It is the best mountain view you will find in a vacation rental this affordable. The cottage is conveniently located to those things that attract the most sight-seeing and outdoor adventure offered in western North Carolina. A short drive will take you to shopping, dining, music festivals, theater, fine arts, local crafts, national and state parks, abundant waterfalls, scenic drives and so much more open for your exploration. The drive up, off of Hwy 64 West is winding and beautiful so take it slow. Turkey Creek Drive is a short, gravel, winding, one way road. The challenging drive is worth the effort to experience the beautiful mountain view. You can't look down and out unless you make the trip up! Well worth it.

                                                              Wonderful! Perfect place for getting away....

                                                              Hilda R.

                                                              Mountain Ridge Cottage was the perfect place for us. Cozy, Clean, and Comfortable. The location could not be better with easy access to outdoor activities, dining , unique small town shopping. Lazy Otter Outfitters in Horseshoe is just a few miles away so we plan to have an experience on the French Broad River on our next trip.

                                                              Wonderful location, amazing views, cozy atmosphere.

                                                              We had everything we could possibly need supplied for us. Even an "in case you forgot" supply closet. The house was inviting with warm beds and beautiful views. Literature about the surrounding area was also provided, places to eat, sites to see, and hiking trails to hike. We loved the hospitality from our hostess and will book again when available.

                                                              Couldn't get enough of the view!

                                                              Had a great stay in Hendersonville. Owner was responsive and very helpful with suggestions for local sites to see. We want to return in summer to enjoy some warm weather activities.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              So nice of you to take time to write a review. Summer in the mountains is a very different experience than the fall. The days are longer and you can experience the views for an extended period of time. Please do return.

                                                              Great getaway!

                                                              Cabin was perfect! We enjoyed our stay!

                                                              Mountain Ridge Cottage is part of the Turkey Creek 'subdivision'. It sits on 5 acres on a knoll near Pisgah National Forest.

One of the unique features is a 72-piece orchestra and the Flat Rock Playhouse (live theater). Brevard is 14 miles west and is also a unique small town offering Brevard College and the Brevard Music Center which presents a full range of concerts and operas with renouned artists June through August.

There are over 200 waterfalls in the area and you can hike to most of them. Triple Falls of Dupont State Forest is a must see and is an easy hike.
