The Red Gate Cottage is a fantastic weekend getaway! My fiancé, our guests and I stayed there for a belated birthday weekend for me, and we couldn't have picked a more perfect place to stay while exploring Asheville. From the moment we confirmed our trip, the hostess of the house, Georgia, made sure we would have everything we needed. She sent me a thorough email of places to eat, hike, and explore while in Asheville. We used this information to eat multiple delicious meals and hike to see beautiful waterfalls. And the cottage was quintessential Asheville. It is near downtown, which was a huge plus for our group. We had 6 guests in our party, and we were more than comfortable in the cozy cottage. The house was stocked with EVERYTHING we needed - even a vase for the flowers my fiancé bought me! The house is decorated beautifully, and although it's a small place, there's plenty of storage. We will definitely be back to this wonderful place! Oh, and I can't forget the beautiful cookie cake she had waiting for me when I arrived. It even said Happy Birthday, Persis! If I could give out stars, Georgia would get a zillion!!

Georgia was a great host with plenty of communication. Our arrival was very smooth thanks to her detailed instructions. The cabin was clean and comfortable and all the listed amenities were in good working order. My friends and I would stay here again.

I traveled all over the world and now have put down roots in North Carolina. My stone and cedar cabin looks much like an Italian Alpine cottage, so impressions of Northern Italy found their way into the landscaping. Most of all, the house is what it always want to be – a faithfully restored cabin with all the modern luxuries. It's a peaceful mountain retreat minutes from the excitement of downtown Asheville, and also near the Blue Ridge Parkway with spectacular hiking, biking, and scenic driving. I love making Red Gate Cottage a special home away from home for my guests. I live just a few minutes away and I'm service oriented, so I enjoy making sure my guests lack for nothing.
