About DIANE E FOLEY
I am a semi-retired designer contractor who was fortunate to be apart of the growing infrastructer of Dallas. In 2009, I decided to give myself the harmony of life and moved to WNC and explored this area for several years before i decided to settle down in this property.
DIANE E FOLEY purchased this Cottage in 2011
Why DIANE E FOLEY chose Fletcher
This property was unique when I purchased it and transformed it from an ugly duckling into an Alice-n-Wonderland setting...2 1/2 years in the workings....alot of creating was done to this place....you would have had to see the before and afters to really appreciate the hard work that went into this with the help of my crew that was with me all of the way.
What makes this Cottage unique
The benefits of enjoying the visit here at the cottage is in so many ways. If I had to put my finger on just one feature, I would have to say the location is by far the most accommadating. I am half way between Asheville and Hendersonville just minutes from I-26 and the Asheville Airport. In either direction of Hendersonville Hwy, you can be in downtown Asheville, Biltmore estate, Lake Lure, downtown Hendersonville in just approx 15-20 min. The cottage has off street private parking with mountain views both in the front and rear of the property.

Perfect for small family
We needed a spot in the NC mountains for our small family Thanksgiving celebration. The cottage was ideal location (easy access into Asheville) and might be the best equipped kitchen that we've encountered through VRBO. There was ample space to spread out and it was immaculate. The pictures are exactly true representation. Diane greeted us warmly and was helpful in getting us situated and settled. Thanks for sharing your great little property...Although "put to bed for the winter" you can tell her garden spaces are knockouts.
thank you so much for taking the time out of your busy schedule now that your back home from the Holiday stay here at the cottage, to write a review so kind expressing your stay here in the cottage. Please feel free to consider coming back when everything is green and all in bloom.
EVERYTHING IT SAYS IT IS & MORE
Delightful cottage set amidst beautiful gardens alive with color & beauty. The cottage was attractively appointed, well equipped & ever so comfy. I cannot understand why anyone would leave a negative review as we found Diane, the cottage Owner, warm, welcoming, clear about the house rules, helpful and fun.Diane saw to our every need during our stay. The Garden Cottage is an excellent property, in a great location & is close to all amenities. I highly recommend this property to others.
Eleanor: It was such a delight to have you and your sister stay here at the cottage...I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and got to be apart of all of the blossoming of all of the creative gardens around the property...although we had lots of rain, we still got to enjoy each others friendships.....I look forward to having you two again. Thanks for writing such a kind review. Another great success story.
Holiday stay near Asheville, NC
My wife and I totally enjoyed staying at Diane's guest cottage for several days. The location was convenient to both Asheville and Hendersonville. The cottage was nicely decorated for Christmas and was clean, very comfortable, and private. My wife thought that the kitchen and dining layout was well designed and the queen beds were great for snuggling. Diane is a great host and helped us with directions to stores, near-by parks and several areas of Asheville that we wanted to check-out. Will stay there again, next time we are visiting this area.
Doesn’t look like the pictures advertising the “ cottage” - they were taken when it was brand new
Disappointing stay here...towels, bedding, throws are in threadbare condition. Pantry items were so old they had rotted. The “cottage” is being used to store stuff so you have to live with the saddest fake Christmas tree ever. Parking is a problem - long driveway which you have to either back in or out of without hitting a truck, a trailer & the owner’s car. I washed all sheets, towels, throws, made up beds, cleaned & everything shined when I left - not even a thank you from the owner! You get 1 roll of toilet paper & no soap detergent to do laundry & 1 garbage bag. I stocked napkins, paper towels, toilet paper, olive oil, & no thank you for those items either. Very dusty inside...nice lower yard but you need special permission to enter. Outside furniture dirty. The “ welcome home “ speech from the owner is about don’t do this & dont sit on these chairs, etc. Chilly weather & only blanket provided was a foam blanket wth holes & tears in it. Disgusting. Thought it would be like a fairy tale... I left 2 days early.
As anyone who takes the time to read my reviews, you will see that I have a majority of positive excellant reviews. I strive to make each and everyone one of my guest comfortable and satified with their stays, but again, there will always be someone who feels unsatified.
I will start out by saying that my property is exactly like it is advertised by the pictures. We are in the fall season here in WNC so our leaves and plants have all gone dormant. Guest would certainly understand that when reserving the cottage. Each guest is asked to sign a simple 2 page house rule agreement. Everyone has the opportunity to ask if they have any questions....this guest did not ask.
This guest was given the privilege of having her two little yorkies stay with her at no additional cost, I noticed she was using the pet pea pads but they used my front entry rug instead leaving stains. She was notified of this and instead of me replacing the entire rug at a high cost, I tried to be more than fair with her and deducted a small amount out of her damage deposit to have the rug cleaned. Now she is disgruted and feels that she has to lash out at this decision by fabricating negative comments of my property. As I have said before, I strive to accomadate all of my guest, but there will always be someone who you can't make happy....all I can say " sorry she got disgruted over a backcharge due to her negligents of her dogs", everyone should be responsible for their pets. I do wish her well.
The cottage is well stocked with bedding, towels and linens, glasses, silverware and is cleaned between each guest to a standard specification. This guest stayed for a period of 2 weeks and I guest she thought I was suppose to supply her with all paper products during her stay...I do provide sufficient supplies for short stays only
My profile listing clearly explains that I too, live on the property therefore other vehicles are parked as well. all guest have a designated parking area to use near the cottage
Me, my husband, our two friends, and our dog stayed in the cottage for a long wedding weekend. The cottage was adorable and comfortable and had great outdoor space for our dog. Diane was very accommodating and responsive as needed including allowing us an earlier check-in time. It was a perfect location for the wedding in Fletcher we attended and the drive into Asheville was super easy as well.
A little slice of heaven
I needed a play to stay for 6 weeks while my house was being built. I was looking for cozy, quiet, spacious and a place where I could bring my dog. This little cottage was "all it and much more." Diane's gardens are absolutely beautiful which made the stay so much more enjoyable. The cottage is fully stocked with more than one could ask for plus a washer and dryer!!
There are a ton of places to walk your dog, one being directly across the street and others within a short driving distance. There were days when I had to be gone for several hours and Diane was kind enough to take my dog out.
Diane was respectful of my privacy but kept me in mind by inviting me to dinner with her friends and enjoying a glass of wine on her deck. She also shared local farm tomatoes and vegetables when she went shopping and wonderful southern cooking when she had leftovers.
The only thing I would change is the "pet friendly" advertisement. I had to find a place for my cat since she only allows dogs.
I would stay here again without hesitation.
WE ARE located just a short distance to downtown Asheville Hendersonville,, Bat Cave, Chimney Rock Park/Lake, waterfalls, 1 1/2 hr to Dolly World, Pigion Forge, Gatlinburg....centerally located within driving distance to many attractions
