About Rumi Komatsu

Rumi Komastu with her husband and four children moved from St Maarten, Caribbean to the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina. Asheville has been their home for four years.

Rumi Komatsu purchased this Cottage in 2013

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.

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.

                                                              We had a great time!

                                                              Dara S.

                                                              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.

                                                              Beautiful home, excellent location!

                                                              Rumi is an excellent hostess and Pumpkin Verdi is full of charm and beauty! We enjoyed every moment of our stay and look forward to staying at this property again!

                                                              Nice cottage. Friendly owners. Not at all serene due to planes overhead and nearby highway

                                                              Lea C.

                                                              Pumkin Verdi is a quaint cottage on a wooded property at a convenient distance from Asheville. While we enjoyed the house and property, we were extremely disappointed at how noisy it was, and surprised no other guests seemed bothered by this. The house is on the landing flight path of nearby Asheville Regional Airport, so there are large jets flying directly overhead from 6:45 am to 10 pm daily. There is a major highway about 1 mile away, so you can hear traffic at all hours. And the nearby power plant shift horn goes off at least 4 times daily. So if you are looking for "quiet outdoors" you may be disappointed. "Sleeps 6" is accurate, but whoever sleeps on the sofa couch needs to be comfortable with no privacy and no bathroom of their own. Luckily our 10 year old son was fine with that. Rumi and Brett were extremely helpful and friendly, and the kitchen is well furnished. Overall, not bad, but not fabulous either.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Thank you for your honest review. It is true what you say that “no other guest seemed bothered by this” Our location which is a mile north of Asheville’s local airport and two miles from the city limits has been by all of our other guest not to be an issue. We have two properties on Lake Coma, the Lodge (VRBO 860028) and the Cottage, combining 25 reviews of 5 stars. It is also important to mention that when you are outside on the eastern side of 16 acre property does one really notice how central to Asheville we are.

                                                              It is unfortunate and we apologize that you only experienced an average 3 star stay. Thank you for letting us know that you enjoyed the house and the property and that we were helpful and friendly.

                                                              Awesome Memorable Vacation

                                                              Shopndrop Grocery S.

                                                              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.

                                                              Best Secluded but not too secluded get away location

                                                              Wanda S.

                                                              We had a great time. This was the perfect get away spot for us. At first we were concerned about the airplanes flying over (close to airport) but they were not a problem really. This is a beautiful cottage that feels like home. Wish we had more time to have enjoyed the property and took in some fishing. We will definetly try to stay here again. Brett and Rumi were very hands on and wanted to make sure our stay was perfect.


                                                              This is our second trip to Lake Coma, the last we stayed in the Lodge and as we were only 4 we rented the Cottage.

                                                              The Cottage obviously smaller than the Lodge but it was perfect for the 4 of us. Very cozy and beautifully furnished.

                                                              A great time of year to be in Asheville, weather was fantastic and we again took to the trails of the Blue Ridge Parkway, Dupont State Park and Pisgh Forest.

                                                              We all had a great time and loved the lake and the fishing too.

                                                              Great memories and a great time, thanks again.
