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 back deck for outdoor dining, 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 a campfire in the fire pit are provided as well!

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 cabin that feels middle of nowhere but less than 10 minutes from everything. My family of 4 really enjoyed our stay. The cabin has everything and every detail is taken care of. Will recommend to all our family and friends!
This was a great place to spend a few nights reuniting with old friends.
We were very pleased with the accommodation and communication. This house is even nicer than in the pictures (which are already good). The kitchen is spacious and well-equipped. The living room couch is comfy and big. The yard has lots of room for children to run around. The location is good too, an easy drive to Downtown Asheville and right near Pisgah for great hiking.
We had a great time! Beautiful home that has everything you could need! My husband and I stayed here with our twin infants, 3 year old, 5 year old, and grandparents. The setup was perfect and everyone had more than enough room! Beautiful property. Would definitely stay here again. Heidi was very friendly and accommodating : ).
A Gem of a House
We had a pleasant stay at White Squirrel Cottage...it more than met our expectations. The back porch was perfect for eating late afternoon sandwiches and watching the last rays of the setting sun. The fire pit was a real treat. I don’t know when I last roasted a hot dog over an open fire. Everything in the house was sparkling clean and neat and the kitchen was well appointed for our needs. We found it easy to travel out and about for outings, but do check your GPS as ours did sometimes give incorrect directions. Thanks, Jason, for your suggestion of eating breakfast at Pisgah Inn and for touring the Sierra Nevada Brewery. This was the perfect way to spend our last day in Candler.
60th and 25rh Birthday Celebration
This home was everything we could of asked for. Beautiful scenery all accompadations needed homey comfortable bedding and really enjoyed the firepit as well. Backporch was great as we played games while looking at the beautiful mountain view. We will definitely rent again possibly in Fall when leaves are changing. Thank you SO much for giving us the opportunity to enjoy your home.
We had a wonderful stay at the cabin! The house is lovely as well as the outdoor landscape. A perfect vacation home for those who travel with their dogs. Very spacious, private backyard with a great view. Thank you for allowing us to bring our dogs! We had a great time!
