Charming, sunny 2-story cottage, centrally located in Hendersonville

This charming, sunny 2-story cottage is centrally located in Hendersonville on a private, multi-cabin property, close to downtown (only 3.5 miles). Perfectly situated for exploring DuPont and Pisgah's waterfalls and trails, Asheville, Brevard and more. The historic Foxhole Cottage is ideal for couples, business travelers or friends traveling together. Not suitable for small children or pets.

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.

Accommodates a maximum of 4 people. Minutes to grocery and restaurants. Great for couples, business travelers or friends traveling together. Not suitable for small children or pets.

About Elisabeth Perez

I'm an avid mountain biker and hiker. I love the mountains and invite you to enjoy them too. As the owner of several cabins, Brightwaters Vacation Rentals, I take great pride in creating a home away from home for my guests and, as a host, I've met a lot of great people. I'm happy to share my knowledge and experience with you when you visit Western North Carolina.
