White Squirrel Cottage is a warm and cozy cottage with a cabin feel, located 20 min from downtown Asheville and from the Blue Ridge Parkway. There is a covered and gated back deck for outdoor dining & fur baby enjoyment, and a fire pit with twinkle lights in the trees and a hammock that over-look the stunning pastoral and mountain views. Wild turkey, deer, and sometime fox are often spotted in the field! The master suite is on the main level and offers a tile shower, double vanity, and premium linens. Living room has a vaulted ceiling and a stone fireplace (we supply the firewood and lighters). There is laundry on the main level as well, and the kitchen looks out over the view. Upstairs is an open loft with a TV, game system for the kids, and a queen sleeper sofa. Two bedrooms on the upper level share a full bath with a tub. One bedroom has a queen sized bed and the other has a triple bunk bed for younger family members. The kitchen is fully stocked and all linens are provided. Supplies for s'mores and wood for campfire in the fire pit are provided as well! We welcome your well-behaved pets and want them to have as good a time as you do!

About Heidi DuBose Fore
We live in the Asheville area, but love to get away to the woods and enjoy the quiet, the wildlife, and the mountains. We wanted a place for our family to get away close to home, and also a place we could share with others who want to come experience everything this area has to offer.
Heidi DuBose Fore purchased this Cottage in 2016
Why Heidi DuBose Fore chose Candler
We fell in love with the setting the first time we came here. The woods with gentle trails and beautiful trees, the large pasture in front where deer and wild turkey stroll through, and the gorgeous sunsets over the mountains won our hearts. It is a quiet corner of the world to rest, relax, and recharge.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage has all the modern amenities to make you comfortable, with the benefits of being quiet and secluded in the mountains. It's an easy 20 min drive to Asheville and has great access to the Blue Ridge Parkway for day hikes, bike rides, or scenic drives.

Great Family Retreat
Spent Christmas there and it was perfect. My family enjoyed both the house and the outdoors. Heidi thought of everything. She even had a Christmas tree decorated near the fireplace. The house is clean and welcoming. I can't say enough about how nice it all was.
We arrived from Florida just in time to enjoy the latest snowfall for the first two days of our trip! Heidi and Jason think of everything and left sleds out for the kids and it was perfect sliding down the big hills behind the home! The whole home and property is comfortable and cozy, warm and welcoming. The property is a hidden gem in the mountains and has everything you need for a wonderful getaway!
We were a close stay to a wedding we were attending in Candler and downtown Ashville is a comfortable 15-20 minute drive away. We went twice. We also were a quick 20 min from the Biltmore where we spent a full day. I highly recommend staying here! The house fit all 7 of us comfortably, 4 adults and 3 kids and our 3 kids were easily entertained by all the games, books and PS3. The triple bunk beds are a hit too for kids! I cannot say enough amazing things about this place!
Great little house
We enjoyed our stay. Everything we could think to need was provided.
My vacation here was everything I was hoping for and more. The house was amazing and the views were spectacular !!! The s’mores left out were a great surprise and were thoroughly enjoyed ! One of the bonuses was the fire wood that was provided for their amazing fire place. I couldn’t have asked for a better trip or hospitality. Heidi And Jason went out of there way numerous times to make sure our stay was great and make sure there was nothing they could do for us. Thanks for truely caring about our vacation and for opening up your beautiful place for us !! I will definatley be staying there again in the future. I would remeommend this lovely, peaceful place to everyone !!!
I booked this house mostly because of the yard. I have two old dogs and 2 very young children and a flat yard was a must. You get that plus amazing views! The fire pit was a huge hit and waking up to deer in the meadow behind the house was so peaceful. We felt right at home the minute we walked in. The house had all the amenities you might need and wouldn’t have to buy (tide pods, dishwashing pods, paper towels, etc). We loved our stay and hope to be back! Thank you Heidi!
Great location, view, and as advertised!
Went up for a long weekend with some friends and this place was perfect. Close enough to Asheville to see all the sights and Uber when needed. And just far enough away to make you feel like you were really away from society. Place was super clean, great size/layout, and had everything we needed for a fall trip to the mountains. Oh, and did I mention the abundance of DRY wood? We had awesome fires inside and out. You won’t go wrong with this place and we’ll definitely be back!
