Description

Relax, reflect, and refresh at this peaceful mountain Artists Cottage. Located in the heart of the majestic Black Mountains, this cozy retreat is nestled at the end of a private lane among lush greenery, rhododendrons, dogwoods, and hemlocks, complete with a tranquil stream surrounding the perimeter of this private cottage. Artist Cottage is a great budget option for your mountain vacation!
The house and its surroundings are perfect for a romantic getaway, family gatherings, seeing old friends, or to just curl up and read a book. Wake up to savoring a cup of coffee in the crisp, fresh, mountain air on the rocking chair front porch, or gather around the fire pit in the evening and enjoy roasting hot dogs and marshmallows as you watch fireflies light up to spacious backyard. The backyard is a family, and guest, favorite for playing croquet, badminton, Frisbee, bocce ball, or just to pull up a chair and enjoy the peaceful sound of your natural mountain surroundings.
Although you will feel surrounded by nature, the Artists Cottage is minutes from I-40 and just 5 miles from the quaint shops and charming restaurants of downtown Black Mountain. Enjoy exploring the Montreat Camp trails and playground or head to Lake Tomahawk, complete with public tennis courts and a walking trail around the scenic lake. For the sports enthusiast, it is close to waterfalls, hiking trails and several golf courses and only an hour drive to snow-skiing and tubing in the winter or kayaking, canoeing, biking and whitewater rafting in the summer. Asheville's lively arts community, the Biltmore Estate, Lake Lure, and the Blue Ridge Parkway are only 25 minutes away.

Along with its great location, the one level Artists Cottage offers a main living room with gas logs, eat-in kitchen, laundry room, outdoor dining, 3 bedrooms (1 Queen tempurpedic, 1 full and 2 twins), and two bathrooms. The full bedroom has a private bathroom, complete with a vintage claw foot tub for soaking your cares away, and a second bathroom includes a newly installed, sliding door shower.
This rustically charming family home is authentically decorated with the owners' award-winning art and features modern amenities including: a fully equipped kitchen, with gas stove; central heat and air; a gas log fireplace; gas and charcoal grill; CD and iPod stereo unit; wireless internet; a flat screen TV, full cable, and a DVD/VCR player (complete with a video library of movie classics). Sheets and towels are included for your convenience. The Artists Cottage is pet friendly and welcomes up to two house trained dogs. No cats please.

FAQ

WHERE IS THIS HOUSE LOCATED?

Artist Cottage is located in Black Mountain. This home is approximately 5 minutes to downtown Black Mountain and 20 minutes to Asheville. Click on the location tab above to locate this house on a map.

WHAT IS YOUR REFUND/CANCELLATION POLICY?

If you need to cancel your reservation and the property you had reserved re-rents for the time which you had it reserved, you will be refunded all money you had paid minus an $89 cancellation fee. If you cancel and the property does not re-rent for your reserved dates, you will lose all money you have paid to that point. For this reason, we recommend that you purchase trip insurance. Please call 888-228-8008 before making a reservation if you have questions or concerns.

WHAT IS YOUR PET POLICY AND FEE?

Artist Cottage is specified as "pet friendly" and dogs are allowed. Unfortunately, due to common allergy problems we cannot allow cats. For the privilege of bringing your dog, there is a minimum charge of $100 nonrefundable fee per pet. A maximum of two dogs are allowed unless you have received special permission from the property manager or homeowner. Any damage that may be caused by your pet during your stay will be paid for out of your security deposit or charged to the credit card we have on file. There is a county-wide leash law in place. When taking your dog outside of a gated area, please ensure that they are on a leash. 

WHAT ARE CHECK-IN/CHECK OUT TIMES?

Check-in time is 4pm and check out time is 10am. It is important that we adhere to these times, because there is a chance that someone else will be checking out/in before or after you and we need sufficient time to ready the house for the next renter. If you wish to check-in early, there is a $50 early check-in fee that can be added on to your reservation. Early check-in is only available if someone is not checking out on the morning of your arrival.

WHERE DO WE CHECK-IN/PICK UP KEYS?

Artist Cottage has a keyless entry system. You will receive a unique access code within 3 days of your arrival, allowing you to go straight to the house and check-in starting at 4pm.

WHAT IF THERE IS AN EMERGENCY DURING OUR STAY?

If you are having a medical emergency, dial 911 from the phone in your rental home or cell phone.

We hope that your stay in the area will be relaxing and without incident, but should you need to get in touch with Greybeard, we have someone on call 24 hours a day. Just call our office at 828-669-1072 and dial extension 203, which will forward to the cell phone of the person on call. Please do not hesitate to call us if something needs immediate attention, but if your question or concern can wait, we ask that you call the office during normal office hours.

WHEN ARE HOMES WITH GAS LOGS IN OPERATION?

Artist Cottage has a gas logs fireplace for guests to use. Gas logs are not in operation May through September due to the warmer summer months. 

Absolutely NO fires are permitted outside unless the property is fitted with a fire ring/fire pit, which is not provided at Artist Cottage. You cannot bring your own portable fire pit. 

IS WIFI SERVICE INCLUDED WITH MY RENTAL RESERVATION? WILL I HAVE CELL PHONE SERVICE AT MY RENTAL?

Wifi is available at Artist Cottage. Please note that Greybeard Rentals does not guarantee internet connectivity or speed. Each individual homeowner contracts directly with an internet service provider, and due to a variety of reasons, Greybeard does not guarantee service. Our Black Mountain and Asheville offices have wifi service available if needed.

Cell phone service is not guaranteed. You may check with your service provider to see if service is available.

The cottage is perfectly located - close to town but very private and secluded. It's a charming old house in the country, complete with a babbling brook, well worn furniture and creaky wood floors. We found it delightful. One note of caution, we had bears in the backyard almost daily (also deer and possum). We enjoyed watching them but you want to keep a safe distance.
You can tell the property is well loved by the family that owns it.
We would love to return!

Everything was GREAT at the Artist Cottage! It was exactly what I was looking for, cozy and inviting. Unfortunately, we could not get the fireplace to work...everything else was perfect.

Another review wrote that it was like going to grandma's house and that's exactly what it was like! We loved it! The Artist Cottage is so cozy and quaint. It's secluded so you have privacy which we liked. And we were able to bring Bella, our 5 pound Yorkie. We took day trips into Asheville and the surrounding area. It was a wonderful week and we do plan on coming back!!

So happy to hear that you enjoyed the stay at Artist Cottage! Thanks for staying with us and we'll look forward to your next visit.

Rented this charming little house for a week in July while visiting friends and family. The spacious yard, nice front porch, and 2 bathrooms make it just the right size for a small group. It's very convenient to the shops and restaurants in Black Mountain (you can wlak into town -- only 2.5 miles) as well as numerous outdoor activities

Thanks for the feedback! Pleased to hear that you enjoyed the stay and that it was a good fit for your group.

Great place to stay. Quiet, Clean & perfect place to relax. There were four of us who traveled to Black Mountain to compete in the 40 mile Mt. Mitchell Challenge. Having a nice place like the Artist Cottage was perfect for resting before running that far as well as recovering after. thanks so much for the opportunity to visit your beautiful part of the State. It is amazing!

My sons, daughter-in-law, husband and I had the opportunity to stay at Artist Cottage. It is isolated a bit but still close to Grocery stores, gas stations,etc. Everyone loved the old mountain house and the large backyard. It looks like you're going to grandmas house. Also, the stream runs the perimeter and sounds so peaceful when you sit out on the deck. We loved it.
