Our Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Cowtail cottage was absolutely perfect! We have stayed in rentals before and none have been as nice as Cowtail Cottage. The location was perfect and all the little extras that were included made for a wonderful vacation. The sheets and towels were all included as well as coffee and all the fixings. even a big bowl of cookies! If you are going to visit the Asheville/Black Mountain area I would definitely recommend Cowtail. Especially nice for families. Even a playhouse in the back yard!

Very nice and spotlessly clean!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay. The cottage was meticulously cleaned and well appointed for cooking/eating. We appreciated the two living rooms as it allowed the kids to watch their shows while we watched ours. Having access to a garage was also very nice. The cottage is conveniently located near 'downtown' Black Mountain AND around the corner from Pisgah Brewing! The owners are prompt and courteous in replying to any questions before or during your visit. We enjoyed our stay.

What a wonderful place! A true gem!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we booked through the locking the door as we left, we truly enjoyed this experience.

We have stayed at a handful of VRBO type rentals and this was our best experience without a doubt.

Allison was very kind, accessible and seemed ready to assist with anything we could need at any point through the process and during our stay.

We had a large group and The Cowtail accommodated us perfectly. The rental was equipped with everything you could need for a pleasant stay and more. The King bed was without a doubt the most comfortable bed in a VRBO that I've ever experienced. Nice touches like a little firewood and some coffee, cream and sugar on the counter made us feel welcome through our stay.

The property was lovely and quiet. It was situated next to a small farm and we enjoyed the visits and views of the cows, horse and dog.

Overall, it's an easy recommendation to make. The Cowtail Cottage will offer a lovely experience.
