The Cottage is just 12 minutes from downtown Asheville. If you are interested in shopping the outlets are just 10 minutes away. If you are attending a wedding at The Farm it is just around the corner. We are in a country setting, with chickens, donkeys and goats nearby.
The Cottage is above a wholesale bakery - smells divine!. Its good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers.
The Cottage is an open floor plan with a private bath. You walk in the door through the covered porch to the "kitchen area." There is a sink, microwave, small refrigerator, and coffee pot along with assorted cutlery and dining ware. There is a kitchen table off to the side and a coat rack.
In the living area there is a large leather couch and an arm chair with a coffee table. A flat screen tv [with cable] is also provided. The queen bed also faces the TV but is tucked into the corner with a wall separating it on one side from the bathroom. There is a chest of drawers to store clothing and belongings.
There are abundant, large windows on every wall letting in ample natural light, but all windows also have blackout curtains. There is a heating/cooling unit on the wall, but all windows open to let in the cool mountain air.
The bathroom is fully enclosed with a large sink/vanity area, tiled walk in shower, and toilet.
You'll have full access to the cottage and parking out front. To get to the cottage you'll walk up a short set of brick steps, through a garden and trellis area. The lawn in front of The Cottage looks out onto farmland with donkeys, goats, chickens, and rolling hills. Feel free to walk around the gardens and orchard. Not all of the animals you see are ours so please check with us before you approach them.
Interaction with guests
We live in the house adjacent to The Cottage and are available for questions and help during your stay.
Other things to note
When you drive up to the property there will be a large white dog - Sadie - who will welcome you with barks. She is behind a invisible fence and cannot get to you, but please do not approach her.
The Cottage sits above a wholesale that operates Monday - Thursday. The smells are divine and often drift up to The Cottage. The floors are thick and insulated, but keep in mind there may be muffled sounds heard during operating hours (9AM - 5PM Monday - Thursday). Sorry, none of the bake goods are available for purchase.
