Beautiful, spacious studio cottage with Queen bed & Queen futon, kitchen & bath

Enjoy the enchanting Firefly Cottage at Mistletoe Hill. -- Even the winter and early spring months welcome a breathtaking season here in the Blue Ridge Mountains! -- Waterfalls close by are tumbling, creeks are rushing -- all it needs is YOU here to enjoy it!

It's a PERFECT TIME to come and enjoy this beautiful season and stay at a remarkable cottage.

Majestic tree-lined drive leads to charming storybook cottage in the midst of privately owned "Mistletoe Hill" property ....just a short drive to downtown Hendersonville, the Biltmore Estate, Pisgah Forest, the Green River (whitewater and tubing), the Tryon International Equestrian Center, Flat Rock Playhouse/NC State Theater, hiking trails, the three county "land of 1000 waterfalls" and the Smoky Mountains!

Ideal for a couple (or friends traveling together), in the former carriage house on a beautiful property setting adjacent to the owners historic 1930's home. Designed with all the amenities you could desire for a vacation getaway -- and a spacious, relaxed, mountain-style that the country-squire Lauren himself would approve! On truly beautiful property that was formerly part of the French Chanteloupe estate owned by Count Choseuil from France, via his appointment in Charleston. Your own private deck, a quietly gurgling water garden beside your cottage, a magnificent 350 year oak tree in your back yard -- with your own tree swing waiting for you! Beautifully decorated and appointed.

Located approximately 2 miles from the antique shops, galleries, fabulous restaurants and boutiques of delightful downtown Hendersonville -- and a short drive from the cottage to Dupont State Forest, Pisgah Forest and other outdoor attractions.

We love sharing our beautiful guest house and property with others. If you have any questions please feel free to ask us. If we don't know, perhaps Jax, our handsome Old English Sheepdog (think Nana in Peter Pan!) will know!

About Roger Belford and Denise Medved

Denise and Roger moved from Carmel, California in 1995 to purchase this beautiful home and property which they love. Denise who spent 10 years with Pebble Beach and Roger who was a general engineering and electrical contractor constructing those frustrating traffic signals we all know and love. Roger grew up in Brooklyn NY and Long Island -- Denise grew up in Raccoon Valley TN -- no kidding! Roger loves to build and create and has lovingly and beautifully remodeled the entire home from roof to lower level, incorporating many elegant and unique features. Denise loves dance and fitness and has created an international brain elasticity program called Ageless Grace.

Roger Belford and Denise Medved purchased this Cottage in 1995

Why Roger Belford and Denise Medved chose Flat Rock

It has an unbelievable 200 foot long entrance drive, lined by magnificent 100 foot tall Norwegian Pines, which caused us to fall in love at first sight. The home is comfortable, spacious and charming as well the cottage.

What makes this Cottage unique

We are situated within 2 miles of historic downtown Hendersonville -- and yet it feels as if we are located deep within a country mountain setting. The 350 year old oak tree which canopies Firefly Cottage at Mistletoe Hill captivated our hearts with the rope swing of our childhoods! Beautiful water garden trickles between the cottage and owner's home.

                                                            Superb.....The Very Best!!!

                                                            Joanne H.

                                                            My month long stay at Firefly Cottage was absolutely perfect in every way. Roger and Denise, as host and hostess, were gracious, warm, and welcoming always ready and available for any needs or questions and at the same time respectful of guest space and privacy. The Cottage itself just kind of wraps it’s “arms” around you and gently holds you in beauty and peace....I could have stayed here forever!!! Great Gratitude to Roger and Denise❤️

                                                            Very comfortable and close to everything you'd want to do!!

                                                            Pam B.

                                                            My husband and I rented this cottage while we moved to our new home. Roger and Denise were so accommodating to our crazy schedule and it was a God-send to be able to leave all the boxes behind and return to this comfortable cottage during our move. Watch lovely sunrises from the kitchen window, hike Dupont Forrest, visit Jump Off Rock, take in a show at the Flat Rock Playhouse or simply stroll along main street and look at all the cute shops in downtown Hendersonville; soooooo much to do here! I used to travel extensively when I worked so I am picky about cleanliness and this cottage certainly exceeded my high standards. We rented from the end of Nov. until Dec 1 and they even had the cottage decorated for Christmas!!!! All the comforts of home - what a treat!!!!!!!

                                                            Charming weekend getaway

                                                            Joseph L.

                                                            Stayed at Roger & Denise’s place while visiting family near Hendersonville. Pride of ownership was immediately apparent. Well-manicured property & super-clean accommodations. Will definitely return.


                                                            Carsten C.

                                                            Peaceful setting, cozy, comfortable, very clean, great host!! Would definitely visit again.

                                                            Sweet little mountain retreat!

                                                            Kerry P.Charlotte NC

                                                            This adorable cottage was the perfect size for me and my husband to get away for a couple nights. We had lunch at Flat Rock Bakery (a must try!), then tooled around the shops in Hendersonville, luxuriously napped at the cottage in the afternoon and headed out to the fabulous Postero for dinner that night (reservation suggested). The next day we hiked Black Balsam Knob (Tennant Mtn) and enjoyed those amazing views. (hike is not for the faint of heart but worth it!) Roger and Denise were gracious hosts and thought of every detail in their cottage. I am super picky about cleanliness and the cottage exceeded my expectation. It was the perfect size and location for what we needed. If you're staying on a Sunday night, you might think about food options as many of the nicer restaurants are closed(or close really early). We ate at Umi and enjoyed but there are some other pub food type options as well if that isn't your preference. There's also a Harris Teeter and an Ingles so you won't go hungry!

                                                            Best little place in Town

                                                            For selfish reasons I'd almost rather not give 5 Stsrs so Rogers place is always available for Lynn & I. But that would not be right. Clean, comfortable, cozy, quite and well appointed. It's also close to Hendersonville and my daughter's new place. It's a gem. Enjoy your stay everyone! B.L.
