Offered for rent is a unique and architecturally sophisticated cottage on a magical mountain in Asheville, NC. The setting is retreat-like, and excellent for those wanting to reconnect with nature, themselves, their friends, or their family. This a place where you can get away from the many distractions of everyday life so you can find what feeds your soul.
The house sits on the side of Pinnacle Knob, a 4150 foot mountain in Buncombe County. It is intended to make you feel as if you are living outdoors, connected with nature, but with all the amenities of indoor living -- kind of like a treehouse with the mountain being the tree. The house is green and healthy-built, and features reclaimed walnut floors, an 1890's Victorian staircase, historical lighting fixtures and a collection of 100-year old recycled doors. We place a premium on the importance of a healthy environment, with a HealthyBuilt certification, pristine well-water, organic mattresses and bedding and non-toxic cookware.
The yard has organic fruit trees and 75 blueberry bushes, which ripen and give you an abundance of anti-oxidants if you are with us in July or August. There are spectacular views, sunlit rooms, and outdoor refuges. Our mountain is cool in the summer, magnificent in the fall and spring, and peaceful in the winter.
It is easy to explore Asheville during the day and return home in the evening. We are 25 minutes from downtown Asheville and 20 minutes from groceries and other amenities. Because the house is on the top of a mountain, a four wheel drive is required. Because of its retreat-like setting, one has to like living in nature to feel comfortable renting this home.
Asheville, NC has world-class restaurants, local organic food, entertainment, and a popular and quaint downtown.
