The Foxhole Cottage has a celebrated history. This 2 bedroom/1.5 bath, 1940's cottage was originally built as a carriage house behind the historical stone house on the property, which was known as the Brightwaters Guesthouse, established in 1938. Upstairs housed 3 rooms - 2 were bedrooms for the cooks who came from Florida in the summers to cook at the Brightwaters Lodge and Dining Room, which used to be in the center of the property. A third room was used for the storage of goods. Renovations in the 1970's enclosed the downstairs (now the living/dining rooms and kitchen and half bath) and combined 2 rooms into 1 large master bedroom upstairs. The name, "Foxhole", is original to the structure.
Today, the Foxhole Cottage has been refreshed and restored to it's former glory, exposing the refinished hardwood floors on the upper level, the original rustic doors and the beamed ceilings.
The Foxhole Cottage is a great house for getting away to enjoy the outdoors.Very close to all of the best mountain biking and hiking trails - DuPont, Pisgah, Bent Creek and Mills River. The Foxhole Cottage is centrally located to dining, breweries and entertainment in Hendersonville, Brevard and Asheville.
