Why Rumi Komatsu chose Arden

We fell in love with this property the moment we saw the lake. A truly magical property in a beautiful setting and exceptional location. Comprising of 18 acres with its own private lake, the cottage is warm, cozy and comfortable, above and beyond expectations. On arriving you feel the nature and its beautiful setting in the heart of Blue Ridge Mountains. You are under 10 minutes from Asheville's attractions, activities & shopping. In 4 minutes you can be at the stores, cinema, restaurant.

The property is excellently located for those vacationers who wish to be near Asheville's main tourist attractions and amenities. The property is tucked into a forest overlooking beautiful Lake Coma with the Blue Ridge Mountains.

What makes this cottage unique

We love the lake, teaming with wide life and in the migrator paths sees a host of visiting wildlife. Our children love to swimming and boat and walking around the lake is so peaceful and serene.

Great Stay!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the cabin. It was convenient to everything and the host was very helpful and accommodating. The cabin is as described - beautiful and cozy. As noted, it is near the airport so there is definitely plane noise but we felt like the convenient location outweighed that one negative.

Perfect Spot just outside of Asheville

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay! comfortable, roomy, clean, and fun.

We stayed here over Memorial Day Weekend and it was great (even though the weather wasn't).

A 10 minute drive to Sierra Nevada, a 10 minute drive to great trails, and a 15 minute drive to the heart of downtown. I couldn't think of a better place to stay, All the amenities of a home and all the comfort of being in the woods! And the Family that owns it....the best!

Thanks again for a great time!

Relaxing Time with Great Views

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I really enjoyed our weekend in Asheville and our stay at the Cottage. The owners were onsite and available to address any concerns (not many...cottage was awesome). We enjoyed the time away from the kids but I am sure to be back so my boys can enjoy the animals located near by and the beautiful lake. I even saw a few deer from the back screen porch, which was cool. NATURE AT ITS BEST! Thanks again for your hospitality! We will be back

We had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The house is nicely maintained and had everything we needed. Having a lake right on property allowed my boys (7 and 9) to fish (bring your own gear) and enjoy the lake (they have a canoe and paddle boat), which allowed for downtime. When we wanted an adventure we were an easy drive to both Asheville and hikes like the DuPont Forest, Blue Ridge Parkway, Slidding Rock etc. Rumi and Brett are great. They were easy to communicate with before arrival and very helpful while we were there. Others have noted in their reviews that you do hear airplanes. It did not bother us, but if you want only the sounds of nature you should be prepared for this.

Awesome Memorable Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I had the most relaxing vacation in Asheville. The Blue Ridge Mountains are just a breath taking scenic view... What a relaxing time my husband and I spend with friends on the lake.

The Cottage where we stayed was self-contained, cute and just met my needs. Tastefully decorated and very cozy. I had everything I needed. I felt I was far away from everything yet 2miles away from all amenities.

We had an amazing BBQ with our friends and over all enjoyed this beautiful area. The owners were close by and accommodative to our needs.
