About the Property
3 Bedroom/3 Bath Mountain View Cottage, Expansive Porch, One Level Living
The 27 hole Waynesville Golf course designed by Donald Ross is a mere 4/10 mile from your door to the Pro Shop to sign in for tee times. If a little pampering is your desire, the Balsam Spa is located at the same resort. The Roost is the midpoint between Asheville and the Cherokee Indian Reservation (Harrah’s Casino) so great for day trips with major highways easily accessible. When the snow arrives, hitting the slopes will be another fun activity since it is only 15 miles to Cataloochee Ski Resort or opt for snow tubing in Maggie Valley.
An incredibly well equipped kitchen with new appliances including gas stove, quartz counter tops and an abundance of dishes and cookware will make family mealtime easy. Games, cards, books, and DVDs are available to enjoy during your stay. There are flat screen HD TVs and Blue Ray players in the living room & master bedroom but we doubt you will need them with the covered porch and rockers at sunrise and sunset calling your name.
Please note – pets and smoking are not permitted at The Roost. Thank you for honoring this request and our Grandchild with allergies especially thanks you!
2 night stay option if reserving less than 2 weeks from arrival date. Cleaning is additional for stays of less than 3 nights.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

The Roost is located in the beautiful Smoky Mountains of NC, just minutes from downtown Waynesville and is the midpoint between Asheville and Cherokee. Easily accessible via major highways (I-40/I-26W/US-74W/US-19/US-276) it is a perfect location to take in all that Western North Carolina has to offer from The Biltmore House & Gardens & NC Arboretum in Asheville to Cherokee to rafting the Nantahala or French Broad Rivers.
Year Purchased: 2014
About: We live in Fayetteville, NC and hope to retire to the beautiful mountains of North Carolina in a few more years. We began our search for a vacation home near Asheville so we could start to learn more about the area and be close to family that lives in Asheville...especially the latest addition to our wonderful family... our 3rd granddaughter!
Why Waynesville, NC, USA:
Initially, we were looking in the Asheville/Hendersonville area, wanting to be as close to our Asheville family as we could. We spotted THE ROOST on the internet & loved the cottage look and told our real estate agent if she would drive us over we'd buy her lunch since we were certain we would buy in the Asheville area :-) We wanted her to see the style house that really caught our attention. The 30 minute drive over from Asheville was easy, the lovely neighborhood so close to the center of town, and the amazing rock retaining walls leading up to the house were all wonderful. All it took however was for us to step on the porch and look at the view of the Balsam Range of the Smokey Mountains from 3000' to know this house was the perfect home for us- you just know when you get goose bumps it's something special! And we had not even stepped inside the house yet! Once inside, it was all over - we knew this was the one! Not surprising - our guests now say the same thing :-)
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
So close to downtown yet with killer views! We are so centrally located to enjoy Western North Carolina outdoor activities, festivals and tons of great restaurants. Waynesville is one of the best kept secrets around!
