  • Spring break getaway.


    Great little cottage tucked away just a little off the beaten path. Really convenient to Black Mountain and Asheville. Cottage was very tidy and comfortable. Cool game room off the master bath at the back of the house. Beds in master and secondary bedrooms were comfortable. Third bedroom had a bunk bed with a full on the bottom and twin on top. Not quite as comfortable, but totally good for kids. Nice covered outside sitting area in the front and patio with fire pit out back. Home looks recently redone and was nicely furnished and decorated. Really the only thing lacking for us was a dishwasher. Kitchen was fairly small, so probably not room for one. Owner was super responsive and easy to work with. Would happily stay here again when in the area.

  • Cute as pie!


    We loved the house! It was a cute as a button and the thoughtful detail blew us away! There were drinks in the game room, a very comfy bed and kitchen staples. It was easy to find and close to Asheville. The master bedroom is oversized with blackout curtains and a quietly ticking clock for sleep. It felt clean and comfortable. I highly recommend staying. It was like staying with a friend. Be advised, there’s no dishwasher but, we didn’t mind. The hostess left a bottle of wine. Don’t worry. This home is wonderful!
