STORYBOOK COTTAGE ~ MOUNTAIN ESCAPE ~ RIVER ACCESS ~ A TRUE PRIVATE RETREAT

A True Mountain Escape

Are you ready for a real mountain vacation? Load up your all-wheel drive or 4-wheel drive vehicle, and let's set out to Storybook Cottage. A perfect location for those who want to visit Asheville, Hendersonville, and the Lake Lure Chimney Rock area. You will need a 4-wheel drive or All-Wheel Drive vehicle to access this property.  Step back in time and experience living in a gorgeous mountain serene atmosphere in a home where everything is maintained to feel not like you're staying in an old house, but instead like you've stepped back in time to experience its charm in the late 1920s. 
 
Make this an extra memorable trip, and plan to "dress for dinner and cards" a few times on this stay. A remembrance to late 1920's southern living while overlooking mountain views and the river. This river is known for its fishing and is often called "an Angler's Paradise."
 
Carolina Properties is proud to have this home on our program. Let's head inside! Walk in and experience a quaint foyer ahead and a queen bedroom to your right. Let's walk into this queen room. You'll notice the original glass perfectly dancing in the light, thus beginning your step back in time. Solid surface flooring throughout this home means slipping on your bedroom slippers and settling into this room all the more relaxing. 
 
Enter the foyer once again, and crossing the hall will take you to another upstairs bedroom with a full/double bed. Aside from the pullout in the Drawing Room of this home, this is the end of the sleeping options on this level. You'll also find a fabulously charming upper deck and a living room complete with a gas log fireplace. Hor'durves, cards, and conversation by the fireplace will make you think, "this great place has been our best mountain vacation yet!"
 
Downward to the lounge room, the kitchen workspace, decks, and more decks, and a bedroom with a king-size bed. There's more to see; let's go! 
 
The lounge room is off the kitchen and is super stylish if your idea of super swank is a glass of red and fireplace and a good book with some light music playing in the background in a classic 1920's mountain home setting. It screams, "read the book." The work hall is adjacent and open to this room; there's fabulous counter space and storage for you to have what you need at hand. It's not fancy; it's sophisticated. There is internet at this property, but it is weak and unreliable. If you need to check and respond to a few emails while on vacation, this internet is appropriate for that. 
 
The kitchen and dining table are great, but open the sliding glass door and head outside to eat if the weather permits. Special memory-making meals - Guaranteed! 
 
This king bedroom is tucked away off the left side at the bottom of the stairs. A full bathroom is just around the corner. Just bring a loofa and a shower cap, and this 1920's bathroom will have you singing rub-a-dub-dub; what a happy country day! 
 
Today let's meet by the river; you can walk if you'd like to, but walking is only suitable for those in shape for a steep hike. Just drive down! Yes, a great place to stop at on your way in or out, but it's also great to pack a picnic at the house and take it down; there is a fabulous little spot on the river that will have the 1930s version of you feeling like you love this part of your property; it's a treasure, and the walk from here is quite reasonable! 

Perfect for Every Season
Each season offers its own unique, unrivaled beauty. Whether you enjoy campfires with s’mores and an acoustic guitar, camping beneath the stars, packing a picnic lunch for the trail, or adventuring into town to see the sights, you will find that the sky’s the limit for your next getaway to remember!

If you visit once, we are confident you’ll return again and again for the rest, beauty, fun, comfort, and hospitality. We hope to see you soon and welcome you to be our guest!
