About Bill Alexander

We love to travel and love to cater to other travelers coming to visit our beautiful area. We live in Asheville but frequent Black Mountain often to visit our parents who live there, to hike our favorite trails and simply to enjoy the small mountain village vibe thats just a few minutes from Asheville. We manage our rentals as a large family operation often letting our 11 and 8 year old girls assist as well as sometimes calling on my parents to help as they live less than a mile away. We look forward to hosting you at our cottage.

Why Bill Alexander chose Black Mountain

This is the place for a couple, or close friends, who want to visit the Asheville/ Blue Ridge area; and not be car-dependent for shopping and dining,yet maintain quiet privacy indoors and out. it is cozy, safe, comfortable. Someone will enjoy Cranberry Cottage if they visit the restaurants and music venues that are within walking distance, enjoy hiking or driving the Blue Ridge Parkway, and want a compact one bedroom Cottage comfortable for two people and a great private yard for pets or a child.

What makes this cottage unique

Cranberry Cottage is close in to downtown Black Mountains , 10-15 minutes to Asheville, in a quiet wooded residential area , yet very private and secure for visiting children(2 or 4 legged)!

South facing double-double doors face the southern Swannanoa mountains yet the cottage is covered in the shade of 100 year old hardwoods. Great gas grill, sitting area, firepit outdoors. Easy parking. Very, Very safe area.

Great little cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a great 1 bedroom place to stay. We were quite cozy in the cold weather with the electric fireplace along with the regular heat. We had a foot of snow too. What a pretty place in the snow. We had everything we needed. Thanks again for a great stay. We will be back.

Great Little Cottage for Two + Pup

  • 5 of 5

We were very comfortable in this cozy little cottage. Didn't lack for anything. Our pup was happy with it as well, she settled right in. It was nice to have the tall fence for privacy & to be able to let our pup off leash to enjoy being outside with us made our visit stress free. It was nice to be able to host a marshmallow roast around the fire pit with our Daughter's family, we all had fun. The kids could run & play with the pup without worries of the road.

Thank you to the Alexanders for providing such a nice stay for us. We will be seeking to rent here again.

Our new "vacation home"

  • 5 of 5

Cranberry Cottage was SO GREAT! We are now calling it our "vacation home in the mountains." We will definitely be back, as it exceeded expectations. The owners were great, the property is great. The whole yard is fenced in with a privacy fence, so you don't see the neighbors or the street, but you get all the lovely beauty of the tall surrounding trees and sky -- it feels like an oasis, truly. Inside, you have all the amenities you'd need for a mountain weekend, with the kitchen fully stocked, just bring your own groceries. It's close to downtown, just about a 1 mile walk (that was a really pleasant walk). Downtown Black Mountain is the cutest quintessential mountain town, but with a cool, artsy, eclectic, all-are-welcome kind of vibe. If you're reading this, and still wondering if you should book a stay at Cranberry Cottage, just DO IT ALREADY! You won't regret it, I promise.

Great little cottage

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage just on the outskirts of Black Mountain, NC is a great place convenient to Black Mountain proper as well as easy access to the main highways including US40 and Route 9. Asheville was a quick 15 minute drive with Swannanoa less than 10 minutes away. Bill was easy to work with and gave us a great place to stay with our two dogs while house hunting in the area. The house is in great shape, clean and tidy. We used the firepit and the fenced in outdoor space with the dogs. It was also a great place centrally located for several outdoors activities including a few mountain bike rides and a couple hikes/runs on the trails to Kitsuma peak. Perfect for two, though room and beds/futons for more are possible there. Highly recommended.
