About the property

Our two-bedroom, one-bath idyllic stone cottage is located on a 200-acre farm with working vineyard and beautiful mountain views. The cottage was built in the 1940s and has lovely pine and ash interior walls, hardwood floors, and two stone fireplaces. Only 2 miles from the Tryon International Equestrian Center -- and 15 minutes from either Landrum, SC, or Columbus, NC -- the cottage is ideally located. More restaurants, bars, outdoor activities, and numerous other amenities are to be found in both Asheville, NC, and Greenville, SC, each only 45 minutes away. The well-maintained home has one king bedroom and one twin bedroom. The living/dining area, with stone fireplace, has numerous casement windows affording western and northern light. The fully equipped kitchen features a small sitting area with built-in bookcases and fireplace. A 42' flat- screen TV is located in a small den. The large bathroom has a built-in vanity and tub/shower combination. A covered stone porch provides memorable sunset views over the vineyards and Blue Ridge Mountains. A full basement, with direct access from outside, features a large sink area and new Samsung washer/dryer.

A magical place.

  • 5 of 5

Amazing views and comfort in this house, built by hand in 1940. Peace, beauty, a vineyard, deer in the meadows - plus sleep worthy beds. Heavenly.

Lovely and quiet. So wonderful to come to after long days at TIEC.

  • 5 of 5

The owners were gracious and wanted to ensure that we had the perfect visit. The cottage was very clean and everything worked fine with no exceptions. Short drive to Landrum SC for some great dining. Can't say enough about the cottage, the vineyard grounds or the owners. Will always stay here. No need to look for "perfect" when you already found it.

We had the BEST stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Rockhouse during Tryon International Equestrian Center's Summer Series for 2 weeks. The cottage was clean, charming and rich in history. The property is incredibly beautiful and lends itself to relaxing evenings after long (and hot) days at the horse show or out exploring the beautiful mountains of North Carolina. The cottage is a stone's throw away from TIEC and has easy access to some major roads and highways for day trips. The owners were super responsive, friendly and welcoming. We will most definitely be back!

The Rockhouse is awesome!

  • 5 of 5

The Rockhouse is the perfect getaway for a relaxing vacation, or in our case, a fast paced equestrian competition. It is rustic and charming yet has most of the comforts of a modern home. The unique cottage is constructed of a variety of rocks but also large chunks of glass, coral and some more colorful stones. Pictures don't do it justice. The appliances are in excellent condition. The washer/dryer, oven, gas grill, appear new. The shower has great water pressure, beds are comfortable, A/C was very good. The owners are friendly and welcomed me with a quick tutorial and a lovely basket of snacks and bottle of wine. The homes' interior is nothing in comparison to the view and privacy of the vineyard. We plan on returning there again!
