Description

Sleep alongside the tree tops at Sparrow Cottage, a charming arts and crafts style 2 bedroom cottage that overlooks the mountains within the picturesque, upscale Village of Cheshire. This home is only a short 15 minute drive away from Asheville and mere minutes away from downtown Black Mountain. It is also within walking distance of the YMCA (pool, tennis, and fitness center) and the Village of Cheshire town center. Here you will find several dining options including The Artisan Gourmet Market & Café, where you can stop in for a delicious breakfast, grab fresh produce, meat and a bottle of wine from the market to make a delicious dinner at home or Sake Sushi, which boasts high quality Japanese cuisine.

The interior of Sparrow Cottage was recently fully updated, including the addition of a spacious downstairs bedroom and bathroom (complete with walk-in shower) connected by interior stairs. Sparrow Cottage also has hardwood floors and fresh paint throughout. This 3 level home has 2 bedrooms, each with a luxurious king-sized bed, a new Roku based LCD smart TV, and a full bathroom. The downstairs bedroom also features a brand new couch, sitting chair, furniture, and a coffee table. Up the stairs, you’ll find similar new features alongside a full bath with a spacious shower and laundry area with washer and dryer. The upstairs features a deck for viewing High Windy mountain while sipping on your beverage of choice!

The main level has a new LCD Smart TV with a new soundbar, new furniture, a new refrigerator, microwave, cooking utensils, and dishes. The living room features a gas-log fireplace, new king-size chaise sleeper sofa, and a new kitchen table and chairs. Step out on the deck for 4 person dining under an umbrella or under the stars. Use the new Weber grill year-round to grill fresh foods for an enjoyable feast. Fresh linens and towels are provided for your convenience, and a mini-split A/C system was installed upstairs to enhance your overall comfort.

Due to the owners' severe allergies, no pets are allowed.

FAQ

WHERE IS THIS HOUSE LOCATED?

Sparrow Cottage 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?

Sparrow Cottage 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?

You will receive check-in instructions prior to your arrival with driving directions and key access information. You do not need to stop by our office to pick up your keys. You will 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 Sparrow 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.

Cheshire village was a lovely community that gave us plenty opportunities for walks and the feeling that we were in the mountains. We felt safe in the community and really liked the opportunity to walk to the little village for dinner or grocery needs. We were close to Asheville and the town of Black mountain, but felt like we had escaped the hustle and bustle of the city. The Cottage itself was beautifully equipped and quite comfortable. We especially liked sitting out on the porch and sitting in front of the fireplace on a cool evening. Perfect getaway for a couple or a family or a group of friends.

Lovely!

Sparrow Cottage is lovely, and so convenient. The kitchen was very well equipped with all the essentials, and the bedrooms were spacious with comfortable beds. The layout is perfect for people travelling together with one bedroom on tbe upper floor and the other on tbe lower floor, and the luving area between the two.

I came to Black Mountain for one item on my vacation--see the mountains. And see them I did. What made the Sparrow Cottage spectacular was that it was convenient to get to places I needed to go (mainly, the grocery store), came with a gas grill to cook lunch and dinner with, had options to set individual climate zones (some like it warm, others cooler), and the view was incredible. I enjoyed cooking in the kitchen (lots of work surfaces) and then lounging in the recliner afterwards.

We and another couple shared this house for a 4-day getaway in early October. It met our needs perfectly. We were so grateful to find a house with 2 extremely comfortable king beds, separate bathrooms, and a kitchen that allowed us to cook and eat in. We used the gas grill on several occasions. Stairs to up and downstairs sleeping spaces were a bit steep, but we managed. As others have said, the driveway was also a little crazy. Decor was tasteful, modern, and neutral, much appreciated. Watch out for the bear that greeted us outside the front door when we returned one afternoon! Black Mountain is a wonderful reprieve from hectic Asheville!
Manager response - Response from Greybeard Rentals
Sounds enjoyable! I'm glad you had a nice time at Sparrow Cottage. Thanks for the feedback.

The Cottage is located in a very clean, quiet, & pretty community with shopping and places to dine at the entrance. You are about 3-5 minutes other grocery stores, Starbucks, & other fast food locations. 3 min from the interstate 40, 5 min from downtown Black Mtn. Approximately 15 min from the Biltmore Estate, & the Blueridge Parkway and many sites and attractions. I was pleasantly surprised & extremely pleased with the accomadatios & location.

We love working with Greybeard and this trip was no different! Sparrow Cottage is charming and we will return there again on our annual visit to Black Mountain. The cottage was spotless and provided us with exactly the space we needed for a family getaway. Greybeard is a first class rental company......from great customer service to the added touches you receive when you arrive. The bread was delicious! C’ya all next Fall!

Property was as described and very clean and well kept. Bedrooms were either up or down stairs. Which we knew going in. We just didn't realize how old we had gotten since we had pulled a lot of steps. However, by the end of the week, we were doing much better going up and down the stairs. This is a great house for young people. The drive way was not easy to navigate. We also knew this going in. Would come back to this neighborhood, but not this particular house, because of the above mentioned difficulties for us.

Sparrow Cottage was very clean, and layout was great for 2 couples. Lots of room. Kitchen well equipped and updated. Some very nice touches for guests. Beds were comfortable. Only drawback was that back in Sept. 2017, I was told that the A/C for upstairs would be corrected "soon". It wasn't when we arrived in May. Got a bit warm up there. Thank goodness it wasn't hot out or we would have been very unhappy. Parking was a bit awkward, but we managed. Neighborhood is very cute and very quiet at night. Drive was only about 15-20 minutes from Asheville. Black Mountain is nice, but shops all close early. Also, flooding issue hampered some activities. We would return to area and would stay at Sparrow Cottage again if A/C is corrected.

I'm so sorry the timing was off on the extra A/C unit being installed, but it has been included upstairs as of June 2018 so it will be available for your next visit. It was planned to be installed a bit earlier, but the area flooding that impacted all of Western North Carolina due to a coastal hurricane, caused a delay for the install. Thanks for providing this helpful feedback.

Great Place!

This is the second time my husband and I have rented a house from Greybeard in the same community in Black Mountain. This house was just as great as the first one. It's the perfect house for two couples since one bedroom is upstairs and one bedroom is down stairs. Plenty of privacy for each couple along with a terrific shared living and kitchen area. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a beautiful and quiet location. Plus, it's a short ride to downtown Asheville -- giving you the best of both worlds. This is a wonderful house in a wonderful location!

Thanks for returning to rent with us at Greybeard! I'm so glad you were as pleased this time as last time with the stay and enjoyed the time at Sparrow Cottage.

Location and management of the property was excellent. However, there are some structural concerns: (1) The upstairs bedroom is too hot for use in warm weather; only the downstairs bedroom was cool enough for sleeping during August; (2) The stairs are steep, the treads are narrow, and the finish is too slick for safety. (3) Parking is difficult. (4) the Living room TV controls are unnecessarily complicated. All else is wonderful.
Manager response - Response from Greybeard Rentals
Thank you for the 5-star review and feedback on your stay! The owner plans to add a third zone upstairs for the A/C to improve the cooling up there shortly. Thanks for letting us know how your stay was.

Loved staying here with my husband for two weeks. Our two daughters visited on the weekend so it was great to have two king size beds and two full baths. The downstairs bedroom is HUGE and we probably should have nabbed that bedroom instead of the upstairs (which has a view and balcony). Kitchen had all we needed and the common area was fine for our (perfect for two). The location is GREAT and it was super easy to drive into Asheville for dinner...highway the entire way. Our only small complaint is we wish we had a covered porch. It would have been nice to have someone where to sit, read and relax on rainy days. Otherwise all was perfect!

Had a great stay at Sparrow Cottage. Only a few things I would change, mattress in the upstairs bedroom was too firm. Very uncomfortable. More towels, had 4 people staying, 2 were women and need extra towels for their hair. Paid good money for the rental only to have 1 towel per person.<br/><br/>Upstairs bedroom ventilation not good. Very warm compared to rest of house.
Manager response - Response from Greybeard Rentals
Thank you for the feedback. I'm so glad you enjoyed the stay! The upstairs bed is a brand new natural latex bed. I'm sorry that the level of firmness was not to your preference. This is the first time we've heard mention of the upstairs the temperature not getting above 80 degrees during your stay dates and the A/C being fully functional, I'm confused about this detail. I understand that there were 10 towels stored at the home, so there should have been more than 1 towel per person available. Feel free to email additional details to if you'd like. It's always helpful to have feedback!

This cottage is a little piece of heaven and we can't wait to return. It's cozy, clean and we loved the location. It's close to the I40, 15 minutes away from Asheville & Blue Ridge Parkway. BTW both televisions have been upgraded to newer models. The neighborhood is beautiful and quiet, and there are 3 restaurants that you can walk to, the views are amazing! Fully equipped kitchen. The only thing I'd suggest is bringing your own cooking Utensils, some of them are worn out. However, all of the dishes were clean and in good condition. My husband and I can't wait to return to this house.

What a great review for a great home! I'm glad you enjoyed the stay at Sparrow Cottage and thank you for the notes about the upgrades the owners have made. The owners also plan to upgrade kitchen utensils as you mentioned.

We recently rented the Sparrow Cottage for a five night stay. The cottage is immaculately maintained and offers everything you could need. Is is conveniently located close to major roads.only negative for us was the driveway access. It is somewhat steep and narrow and roadway to access is not pave. We would stay again but hope improvements are made to access.

Our stay in Sparrow Cottage was better than we could have imagined! I almost hate to write this review for fear of losing a best kept secret: Black Mountain and vacation rentals through Greybeard. The house and community are beautiful! The driveway takes a little practice but is much easier than others in the mountains. We will definitely return.

Sparrow Cottage is a very cute and cozy cottage. It's the perfect size for two people with all the amenities you could ask for. We didn't spend too much time in the cottage because there is so much to do and see in the area. We hiked our way up the Blue Ridge Parkway almost every day and then spent a day in downtown Asheville. This cottage is conveniently located to Asheville and the Blue Ridge Parkway. The best part is being able to bring our fur kids with us. It's great to find places to vacation that are nice and pet friendly! That is not always an easy task. We would definitely stay again if we ever have plans to visit the area!
Manager response - Response from Greybeard Rentals
Glad you and fur kids had a great time enjoying the area! Asheville is wonderful in terms of being pet friendly. We'd love to have you back anytime!

The cottage was amazing! We loved the location and the entire house. The only problems were the driveway is very hard to get a truck in and out especially with some of the gravel being washed away. The only other problem was the living room remote did not work but it could have just had dead batteries. Overall we loved the area and cottage and the whole experience.

Hey, that's great to hear you enjoyed the stay overall! Thanks for the feedback on driveway access and the living room remote - it's quite possible that it needed a battery replacement. We will take a look!

Stayed at Sparrow Cottage in late June 2015. The accommodations were excellent for the two of us. Very clean and roomy for two. The kitchen is fully equipped, there is washer/dryer close to the bedroom, and the cottage is very close to a small community center and within 5 minute drive to downtown Black Mountain. Also only 15 min away from Asheville and all that that city has to offer. Going back again.

The only drawback to the property is the driveway as described by other tenants. My recommendation would be to completely pave the drive from the top of the driveway to the bottom of the drive. We have an all wheel drive vehicle yet at times it was a bit difficult to maneuver. Other than that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
