About Van Roldan

Debbie & myself came to the mountains from sunny So. Florida where we both grew up. We both wanted to trade the corporate life for an easier going lifestyle somewhere where we could enjoy the rest of our lives away from the hectic pace of a metropolitan city. We found our paradise in the western North Carolina mountains where we own and operate Albert's Lodge at Mt. Mitchell. We are fortunate to be living and working where we also love to vacation.

Van Roldan purchased this house in 2015

Amazing View-Cottage Update needed

  • 4 of 5

Van the owner is always available to answer questions and help make your stay as comfortable as possible. If you and your family are the outdoor adventurous type Mt. Mitchell is incredible. There are many hiking trails and waterfalls a very short distance from the cottage. It was a great location for our dog. She loved roaming free and taking long walks out on the golf course directly in front of the cottage. She also played with another 4 legged friend. The cottage is next to a very quiet road, no one around, so it was great walking outside every morning in my pajamas to let the dog out. Very pet-friendly property. The house was clean but needs updating and maintenance. The blinds are very old and the sliding door on main floor is VERY difficult to open and close. The bed in master room is comfortable. The twin beds are not very comfortable and they could all use new mattresses. But.... as mentioned in the description the kitchen is well equipped with appliances, pots, pans, utensils, etc. The layout is just ok. With the view being so beautiful, I wish the place had more windows to admire the mountains. We spent a couple of days in Asheville which was a little more than 1 hour away. We did not go to any restaurants near the cottage. The drive back to Mt. Mitchell cottage from Asheville in the dark is long and hard on the windy roads. My eyes were extremely tired from the drive. I would only stay at this property again, which is so close to the Blue Ridge Pkwy, if our only purpose was to enjoy outdoor activities such as cycle, hike or kayak.

Lovely Mountain Townhouse

  • 5 of 5

I thought I had rented a cottage, but it is actually a townhouse with someone on one side and someone underneath. Nevertheless, we really enjoyed our stay in this mountain home. It was clean, warm, inviting, comfortable and the owners were very friendly and helpful. The location was great for us and we would definitely rent here again...but we'll be more careful to get a "free standing" cottage.

Great Getaway spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay for our Memorial Day weekend getaway. Van and Deb are great and very accomodating. Van walked us up and gave us the grand tour upon arrival and was super helpful when we had any questions about the surrounding area. There were hiking sticks ready for our use if we decided to go hiking, and a nice fire pit that we used to cook smores at night. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to get out and enjoy nature, the mountains, and get away from the hubbub of city life for a bit!
