Description

Newly-built in 2016, this comfy 2 bedroom, 1 and a half bath art and crafts cottage is located in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance of Lake Tomahawk, municipal swimming pool, tennis courts, and the shops and restaurants in downtown Black Mountain. And it's just minutes away from the Black Mountain Golf Course. A large, screened-in back porch with plenty of seating overlooks a lovely, level back yard with mature trees where you can watch the hummingbirds, enjoy a fire in the fire-pit, or cook up some NC barbeque on the gas grill. The cottage features two large bedrooms, each with a king bed and TV, and the master bedroom includes an attached half bath. The well-stocked kitchen and open living room (with TV) feature cozy, comfortable seating, whether for morning coffee or entertaining a few friends. Snug and efficient, the cottage also features a full washer/dryer set, utlra-quiet central heating and cooling, puzzles and games, cable and wireless hi-speed internet. Perfect for romantic getaways, or artist/writer retreats.

This home also offers a Keurig coffee machine.

House layout: living room with TV; eat-in kitchen with table that seats 4; a bedroom with a king bed and a half bath; a full bath in the hallway; another bedroom with a king bed and another TV. A wonderful screened porch at the back of the house.

The Hummingbird Cottage is such a wonderful little cottage. It has so many sweet little extra touches like coloring books and colored pencils, jigsaw puzzles, and pretty artwork that combine to make the cottage a delightful place for a mountain getaway. The cottage is easy to get to and made the perfect "launching pad" for our hike to Catawba Falls, shopping in Black Mountain, visiting a distillery, a cider, and a brewery, as well as delicious dining spots. Greybeard's addition of pumpkin bread and coffee made each morning perfect. The cottage was clean and comfortable and had all the amenities that we needed for our stay. We look forward to staying again soon!

Overall very nice. Except the Keurig machine did not work when we tried. Appeared to be broken.
Manager response - Response from Greybeard Rentals
Thank you for your feedback. Sorry to hear about the Keurig. Thanks for letting us know. I'll report to our maintenance division so we can resolve this. 3.1 Update: the Keurig machine has been fixed; thanks for letting us know about this.

Greybeard again proves to be a cut above the other vacation rental companies. The house was in excellent condition, immaculately clean and very well-equipped. Plus, the location cannot be beat! I would have preferred a whole-house climate control system rather than the single unit in the living room, but this proved to be a minor inconvenience.
Manager response - Response from Greybeard Rentals
Thank you for the compliments of our service! I'm so glad you had a nice stay. Thanks for the feedback.

We often rent in Black Mountain and this house was the best...comfortable furniture and beds, great porch (it rains a lot in summer). My only suggestion is to put in the ad you have Keureg...we could have brought our favorite pods.
Manager response - Response from Greybeard Rentals
Good suggestion! We will add the note about the Keurig. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay.

We had a delightful week at Hummingbird Cottage. Everything about this home was good, from the comfortable beds to the well-stocked kitchen and comfortable living room furniture. We loved having the Keurig so I could have tea while my husband enjoyed his coffee. There were only two of us so we only used one bed but it was very comfortable and provided a great night's sleep every night. We look forward to returning to Hummingbird Cottage.

Hummingbird Cottage was a delight. We enjoyed staying in the Black Mountain area, downtown was a mile from the cottage with wonderful shopping and dining choices. Biltmore and Downtown Asheville are very close a 30 minute drive. Hummingbird Cottage is a great location for your next getaway!

Great cottage! Brand new so absolutely clean and comfortable. Great furnishings and extremely comfortable beds and linens. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would return here again. The screened porch is a bonus and cottage is in a good location. About a mile walk to center of town but only a couple hundred yards to lake. We always enjoy Graybeard fresh bread and coffee upon arrival. Unfortunately this unit had no means of brewing the coffee. The only coffee maker in the unit is a Keurig pod coffee maker. Not the best choice for a rental.
Manager response - Response from Greybeard Rentals
Thank you for the feedback! I'm so glad you enjoyed the stay at Hummingbird Cottage. After reading your feedback about the Keurig pod coffee maker, the owner decided to stock the home with a regular coffee maker, so that will be available from now on. Come back soon!
