Dinnerware, glassware, utensils, and pots & pans are provided for your use. Just a quick stop for provisions at one of the nearby grocery stores and you are ready to prepare a gourmet meal or burgers on the charcoal grill.

The large gas fireplace has a beautiful maple mantle cut & polished by a local sawmill. Comfortable, casual furnishings surround this one of a kind art piece with a 55 inch Smart TV mounted above it. A ceiling fan allows the cool mountain breezes to circulate through this room with its' ceiling soaring to 14'. However, it is the glorious mountain views that are the main focal point of Mountain Vista Retreat. Sliding doors from the living room lead to the 10' x 39' main deck. There is a charcoal grill & an iron table with seating for 6. A chest provides storage for the cushions, allowing you comfortable seating for the nightly show!
Extending out from the main deck is an 8'x16' deck which hosts the 6 person Dr.Wellness jetted hot tub. Whether a romantic getaway or a family reunion, the beautiful sunsets enjoyed from this spot will create lasting memories.
From the rocking chair front porch, which is the perfect place to sip a cup of coffee to greet the sun as it peeks over the tree-tops, to the back deck where you see the sun set behind the mountain tops, Mountain Vista Retreat is surrounded by nature! Towering tulip poplars, maples, pines, and oaks, in addition to the mountain laurels nestled beneath, provide coverage for the birds and wildlife that call this place home.
Conveniently located between Hendersonville and Chimney Rock, Mountain Vista Retreat is 12 miles from Lake Lure, 20 minutes from downtown Hendersonville and 35 minutes from Asheville. The Biltmore Estate, the area's number one attraction is only 35 minutes. Other major attractions close by include DuPont Forest State Park, the Carl Sandburg House, Chimney Rock Park and the Blue Ridge Parkway. There are too many hiking trails and waterfalls to mention them all, along with many farm stands selling fresh locally grown produce (during season). The area apple orchards are open from August through October and several of these are an easy 5-10 minute drive from Mountain Vista Retreat! While the road leading up to the house is paved, because of the steepness of the road we recommend a 4 wheel drive vehicle during winter stays.

Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: Suzanne & Marty met & fell in love while working at an Eco-resort on the island of St.John in the US Virgin Islands. After much deliberation about where to make our permanent home ( and even more on where we shouldn't) we decided on the mountains of North Carolina. We moved here after our island wedding in 2004 and have never regretted our decision.
Why the Owner Chose Hendersonville, NC, USA:
The house is located in the same sub-division that we now live in and we love life here. Both of us have had previous experience in guest relations, with Marty owning a bed & breakfast, and Suzanne working in hotel registration. We have always desired to enable others to better enjoy the mountains of Western North Carolina, and owning a vacation rental property allows us to do just that.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This home has million dollar views at an affordable price. The house sits on 4 private acres of beautiful mountaintop, yet is only nine miles away from the interstate, 20minutes from Lake Lure, and a half hour from Asheville.
