Description

Enjoy Ravenscroft, a beautiful home in the Village of Cheshire. The carefully cultivated décor is a delight and will leave you feeling like you’re living in a magazine spread. Featured in 'Old House Journal' and 'WNC Magazine' for the stunning interior design that blends a modern setting with Appalachian Americana and Moroccan inspired spaces, this home is a charming place to stay. From your perch on any of the two decks, survey the other Arts and Crafts style homes as you sip your morning coffee and watch the dew glisten on the lush landscaping.

The main level of the home is cozy, warm, and delightfully Appalachian. Featuring old postcards from Chimney Rock and the Blue Ridge Parkway, and works by local artists “Cornbread” and Richard Oversmith, you’ll feel enveloped in the culture of our region. Craft your meals in the light and fresh kitchen, equipped with marble countertops and stainless steel appliances with gas range. Dine inside at the round table with hand hewn chairs, or al fresco on the front porch, under the boughs of the river birch and rhododendrons.

Soar up to the bright blue and airy upstairs master suite and relax into the queen size four-poster bed. The dark furniture pieces ground the space. The ensuite bath is a shower with cozy green tile and a vanity outside the bathroom. The downstairs suite is sultry and Moroccan inspired full of warm hues and custom lighting. The ensuite is a delightfully bright orange bath with decorative windows within the space. Spend your early mornings or late evenings on the patio, watching the sunlight filter through the hemlocks and ferns.

Ravenscroft will rent monthly for $2595 per month with $100 power allowance and $50 water allowance per month.

FAQ

WHERE IS THIS HOUSE LOCATED?

Ravenscroft is located in Black Mountain. This home is approximately 5 minutes to downtown Black Mountain and approximately 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?

Ravenscroft is not “pet friendly”. Please be respectful of those owners who, because of allergies or other personal reasons, have chosen not to allow any pets. If housekeeping notes that a pet was present on a non-pet friendly property during your visit, you will be charged a minimum of $600 to clean carpets, upholstered furniture and complete air purification measures. Bringing a pet to a house that is not pet-friendly without owner consent or permission from Greybeard is grounds for termination of the rental agreement without refund. If you must travel with your pet, please contact us for local boarding recommendations. More info about service animals and the ADA is available here.

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?

Ravenscroft 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?

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. 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 Ravenscroft. 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.

We enjoyed everything about our stay. The home was so comfortable. I loved the attention to detail these owners placed on their home. We loved all the artwork and little details throughout the home. It is a lovely home! The neighborhood is stunning as well and in great proximity to Black Mountain. Black mountain is a wonderful little town. We loved that there was plentiful shopping and places to eat without being too crowded like Asheville. We did a new adventure daily such as trips to chimney rock, lake lure, Asheville, and Hendersonville. We also enjoyed the Biltmore for candlelight Christmas. We would do this trip again and again! We did do some hiking but definitely would do more of that next time. There is just so much to explore! We also would definitely choose Ravenscroft. This area and home is fantastic.

Ravenscroft was super clean, beautifully decorated and just perfect for our family of 4. We cooked most of our meals ourselves during the 6 days we were there. The kitchen was VERY well stocked with cooking/prep supplies. The grocery store was very close. The ground at Cheshire village are also beautiful. We enjoyed going for morning runs and evening walks. Our two favorite places this trip were Chimney Rock and Catawba Falls.
Manager response - Response from Greybeard Rentals
It sounds like you had a wonderful time. Glad you enjoyed Ravenscroft and the surrounding area! Chimney Rock and Catawba Falls are both great spots. Thanks for staying with us!

The cabin's location is ideal as it is only 5 minutes from Black Mountain and also near the interstate for a trip to Asheville. We enjoyed several meals at the nearby Artisan Gourmet.

Our family of four enjoyed our stay at Ravenscroft so much! It is a lovely home, so unlike most rentals. The owners have created a cozy, yet spacious home with art, pottery, and architectural details. You could easily just stay at the cottage and enjoy the extensive book collection and the porch views. The location is great also, with an easy walk to breakfast, or quick drive to Asheville or for a hike. Graybeard Realty's special touch, leaving pumpkin bread on the counter (best I've ever had) was a treat also. We hope to return soon!

Lovely home with beautiful views from the top deck. Cheshire Village is an ideal community for visitors. The home and village are very quiet and peaceful. The home is nestled in the trees. It feels like you traveled to another country far away from the hustle and bustle of the big cities. Only negative is parking- one car is fine, two cars would be challenging/impossible to fit in the driveway.<br/><br/>The home is in a great location with an easy commute to many locations: Blue Ridge Parkway, Biltmore, Asheville, Montreat, Brevard and Hendersonville. We had a wonderful time and our week at Ravenscroft went by too quickly.
Manager response - Response from Greybeard Rentals
Nice to hear that you enjoyed your stay! Sorry to hear that parking was a challenge. Hope to welcome you back soon!

We had a very nice stay at Ravenscroft over Xmas. The home was just "as advertised".

Had a very nice time. Great rental for 2 couples. The kitchen was wonderful! We found parking for 2 vehicles way to tight.
