Let your family and friends make lifelong memories in our family home - Our home is a mix of historic Montreat character and today's modern conveniences. Comfortable family gathering space in our living room with gas log fireplace, dining room which can seat 10 at table, cozy den with tv, stereo, games and books, wi-fi throughout house, custom, fully equipped kitchen with breakfast table that seats 6, covered deck for outdoor relaxing and dining, plus a back patio off kitchen with picnic table for additional outdoor dining. Sleeping porch and glass enclosed front porch. Our house has modern features, but like a traditional Montreat cottage, we do not have central air. Instead, we have an attic fan, plus ceiling fans throughout to cool the house. Level yard for outside activities and parking for up to 6 cars...which is a premium in Montreat! Easy 10 minute walk to Lake Susan, children's park, tennis courts, Huckleberry snack bar, and Assembly Inn on paved sidewalk. Short 5 minute drive into downtown Black Mountain with unique shops, restaurants, and galleries as well as grocery stores, bank, library, and post office.

Inglenook Cottage has been in our family since 1981 and we have spent almost every major holiday here together, including Christmas and New Year's, Thanksgiving, Easter and July 4th. Our parents retired to this home in the 1990's and we continued to spend many occasions together each year in Montreat as they grew older and spent their golden years in this wonderful community. Although our parents have passed away, this home is their legacy to the grandchildren who spent so much time here with their grandparents...Our home away from home. We come often to spend time together as a family making new memories. We want to invite you and your family (or friends) to experience the wonder of Montreat in our special home and make your own memories.

About Molly Brown

This home has been in our family since 1981 and we have spent almost every major holiday here together, including Christmas and New Year's, Thanksgiving, Easter and July 4th. Our parents retired to this home in the 1990's and we continued to spend many occasions together each year in Montreat as they grew older and spent their golden years in this wonderful community. Montreat was created to provide a sanctuary for Presbyterian clergy to retire here after their years of service.

Molly Brown purchased this house in 1981

Why Molly Brown chose Blue Ridge Mountains

Although our parents have passed away, this home is their legacy to my sister, me and our children who spent so much time here with their grandparents...Our home away from home. Our families come up often to spend time together making new memories. We want to invite you and your family (or friends) to experience the wonder of Montreat in our special home and make your own memories.

What makes this house unique

If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, you can escape to Montreat where life slows down and you can listen to nature in this quiet setting. Whether you are sitting on the porch reading a book, cooking a family meal, playing some cards on the covered deck watching the afternoon showers, watching a football game, taking an afternoon stroll to Lake Susan, or visiting in front of the fireplace --- these are the memories you will want to share with your family and friends.

Perfect accomodations for our extended family.

  • 5 of 5

Our 3 generation family loved being in the mountains, in Montreat Assembly grounds, and staying at Inglenook. Just the right amount of room for our family of 4 adults and 2 children.

So comfortable and homelike.

  • 5 of 5

This place feels like home. It is very well appointed. The kitchen is well equipped for feeding a crowd. The indoor and outer porches are perfect for visiting. The cottage is well located for attending Montreat conferences or visiting Back Mountain and Asheville, but you won't want to leave. It is perfect for family reunions and celebrations. We had three generations and everyone had a great time. We loved that the family has left the home as if their parents just walked out the door for a little while.

Wonderful home and owner! Perfect experience!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this house for an intern and seven college students attending the Montreat College Conference. After arriving there, our intern texted me back saying, "the house is amazing". I think that largely sums it up. Wonderful location and beautiful setting for adults or college students wanting to stay in a home while attending a conference at Montreat. Our group took casseroles for dinner and heated them nightly.

Molly is an incredible host! She stayed in contact with me via email, phone, and VRBO. When I gave her the phone number of our intern who was chaperoning the trip, she reached out directly to her to assure that she had all the information she would need. Lovely home and lovely host! I cannot recommend this property enough!

Great house in the middle of the woods

  • 5 of 5

Really comfortable house that was perfect for us, our two kids, SIL and her grown daughter. Molly was great and so attentive to our needs and the house is stocked well enough so we could cook and bake. Also just a great place to vacation. So many beautiful hikes around here and Black Mountain, which is close by, is a great little town to walk around for shopping and eating. Will definitely be back.

Wonderful home for our family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

Very special weekend. Our family met at Molly's home for a family reunion. You can tell the care they take of this house and feel the family love. Very nice and clean. Thanks for allowing us to enjoy your home. We grilled out one night and then had everyone bring in a pot luck dinner the next night. So fun. We look forward to next year!

awesome weekend in the mountains!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time up in Montreat. The men played golf Saturday in Asheville while the girls went shopping in Black Mountain. Wonderful shops, great restaurants, and lots of laughing on the deck throughout the weekend. The house was a perfect fit for our 4 couples and was very clean and cozy. thanks again for a wonderful weekend. we'll be back next year!
