  • Carefree Cottage fits its name!


    We stayed for 4 nights in March. The cottage was very spacious for us and the decor pleasant. While staying the weather was very changeable but we always felt cozy. The kitchen was well equipped as were the bathrooms.

    The cottage is very close to the 'Mountains to Sea Trail' and we did a couple of enjoyable hikes on the trail. The dogs also felt welcome and enjoyed the back yard of the house, the interesting new sniffs and the wide variety of trails to explore.

    Finally, the owners were very helpful with our questions. It was an enjoyable stay!

  • Amazing time


    My husband and I came and stayed at the Carefree Cottage when we came for a marriage retreat and loved it. My in laws and children came as well. The house is very spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. The house is located on the end of a very quiet street.

    Cindy, the hostess was so sweet and accommodating as well! I would recommend this house for anyone to stay at who is needing a place to stay in Asheville!

    The hostess and owners left treats for us and the kiddos as well!

    The owners were super quick about messaging me back when I messaged them. They were super friendly and accommodating as well.

    If I could give this VRBO 100 stars, I would. It was such a blessing to stay here! We loved that they left us pastries and teabags to have a tea party on the back patio and juice boxes for our kiddos as well as coffee for us!

  • Great Asheville location, close to MTS Trail


    We had a great stay at this property. It's within walking distance to the Mountain to Sea Trail, which we enjoyed hiking on several days. It's very quiet (great sleeping) and has a nice porch for reading. Cindy, the resident caretaker, is a delight, very discrete, and gives you plenty of privacy as she is gone a lot. Only 10 minutes to downtown Asheville and even closer to the BR Parkway. We also appreciated all the little treats!

  • Wonderful property


    Property was beautiful and clean. The property came with a complete array of kitchen and grill equipment. Beds and furniture were comfortable. Very quiet--literally only heard crickets! My brother and I enjoyed sitting out on the rocking chairs on the front porch.

  • Great Place


    Susan and Jay were great hosts. The Carefree Cottage was clean and comfortable, and lived up to its name. Hanging out on the front porch was our favorite part. We did end up having an issue with one of the toilets, but it was fixed immediately with no interruption to our stay. Cindy, the on-site hostess was very pleasant and accommodating, we hardly knew she was even there. I would highly recommend this property.
