Excellent...really lovely cottage and well appointed! This cottage goes far beyond Montreat standards: top quality bed linens ( almost too nice for church youth groups I would think). Kitchen had everything ( even a nice sketch in the silverware drawer indicated the right slot for everything! Beautiful antiques ( we were obsessively careful about using coasters! interesting art work- not cluttered at all- we guessed that an interior designer was involved...all of the thoughtful touches did not go unnoticed by our group!

So glad you enjoyed McLean Cottage! Thanks for the feedback.

We had a great time gathering the family together to celebrate our nieces wedding. It is an older house with many neat rooms and plenty of space. Easy drive to Asheville. We would rent again if we need to rent in that area in the future.

This was our second time renting this house and we loved staying there. My mother uses a walker and the house is handicap accessible - an important factor for us. I also love that it is pet friendly. The house is well located and equipped and a great place to stay for those looking for the quintessential "Montreat experience".
Manager response - Response from Greybeard Rentals
Glad Barden House provided good accommodations for you and that you found it to be a good fit for a Montreat experience!

Any day spent in Montreat is a good day. This was our first experience staying in the Barden House. It is a great size for family gatherings with 5 bedrooms, a large comfortable seating area, two eating areas and a huge kitchen space and everything you could possibly need to cook meals. I liked the fact that it was handicap accessible with one downstairs bedroom for my 96 year old mother. There was a bath but no shower downstairs, which was a problem for her. The house in a great location with easy walking to Lake Susan and hiking trails. No air, which wasn't an issue due to time of year and plenty of fans in the house. This home is one of the older ones in Montreat and has lots of character; however, it needs quite a bit of TLC in the form of deep cleaning and de-cluttering that goes beyond the cleaning done by the rental agency. I would consider staying there again because of the positives, but would really love to see this house get the TLC and loving care it deserves.

We stayed at Barden House with our youth group and had an excellent stay. The house is very walkable to the center of Montreat. The walk is fairly level considering you are in the mountains! The house is large enough for a group to spread out, has enough seating for group meals and group discussions and has plenty of parking. I would highly recommend Barden ?House to a group or even a large family.
