Property Highlights

The essence of a mountain cottage, complete with babbling brook, woodsy surroundings, and knotty pine interior. Perfect for a small family or couple, this 1953 cottage was renovated and enlarged in 1996. It features 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a modern kitchen and a large deck. Day or night, open the windows and enjoy the welcome fresh air while reading, playing board games, or letting the mountain stream sing you to sleep each night. Easy 10 minute walk to Lake Susan.

House Layout: Bedroom with a queen bed, bedroom with a full bed and full bath, full hall bath (shower only).

LINENS INCLUDED for your convenience. Although the cottage does not have central a/c, it stays comfortable due to the wooded surroundings. In the summer of 2019 a wonderful screened porch was added for your enjoyment.

FAQ

WHERE IS THIS HOUSE LOCATED?

Wardlaw Cottage is located in Montreat. This home is approximately 10 minutes to Black Mountain and 30 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?

Wardlaw 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. Early check-in is not available during the summer conference season. 

WHERE DO WE CHECK-IN/PICK UP KEYS?

You will pick up keys from our Black Mountain office, located at 204 East State Street. Keys will be available starting at 4:00 pm. If you are arriving after hours, you will receive instructions on how to access the safe on our front porch. There will be an envelope with your name and house name at the top. Your keys and driving directions will be inside the envelope.

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 Wardlaw 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.

Wardlaw Cottage is a cozy, quaint location with tons of charm! It reminded us of our cabin we had in Michigan's U.P. right down to the smell! The dining area was big enough for us to host our family that we came to spend Christmas with. I was afraid we wouldn't be able to use the beautiful screened in porch but the weather surprised us with 65+ while we were there. The fireplace in the living room made it so cozy and the back sun room was sweet too. We brought our Christmas decorations, right down to a tree, and had the place looking very festive. Wardlaw was a great choice for us size wise and location to our extended family on Mississippi - we would definitely rent here again! Thank you Wardlaw family for sharing your getaway place on the mountain!

I've stayed in Wardlaw Cottage for a week each summer for the past 15 years. It's wonderfully cozy, its quiet ambience accompanied only by the sound of a babbling brook just outside the window. I look forward to its welcoming atmosphere each year. I highly recommend it.

Sounds delightful. I'm glad you enjoyed another stay at Wardlaw and have continued to stay with us year after year!

This was the best decision I ever made. We were evacuating our town for hurricane Matthew. I called about 12 different cabin rental places and they had nothing left, until I called Greybeard Rentals. I got the last available cabin that was the right size and right price. When we pulled up in the driveway we were impressed at first sight. We walked in and it was very clean and tidy. I have 3 kids that loved it and it was very child friendly. I would totally rent here again.
Manager response - Response from Greybeard Rentals
Oh, this is great. I'm so glad we could accommodate during the storm on the coast and that you felt at home at Wardlaw. Please do come back soon. Greybeard would love to welcome you back!

My stay in Montreat was made very easy with GreyBeard's professional manner. My cottage was spotlessly clean (this is the eighth time I've stayed in it) and I've never had a problem. Thank you, GreyBeard!
