Enjoyed our first trip to Black Mountain, a long weekend at Winnie's Place. Great location, cozy and comfortable house. Loved the architectural details of the house and the artwork displayed. Lots of snow still on the ground, so didn't get to enjoy the outside areas like the porches, fireplace, etc. Would stay in this lovely home again! Good attention to details and a well-stocked kitchen.

Winnie's Place was the perfect spot for us. Two couples stayed with plenty of privacy for each having one bedroom upstairs and another on the lowest level while the main level was spacious and comfortable. The cottage was very clean, well appointed and the kitchen more than adequately equipped. The cottage is located in a beautiful setting within walking distance of a quaint commercial area with several eating establishments. Asheville is a quick 20 minute drive away.

Sounds like a great arrangement for your stay. I'm glad you enjoyed Winnie's Place.

We have stayed a week at Winnie's Place for two summers in a row. It is the perfect sized house for our family of four, and the location can't be beat. It is close to groceries and downtown shops in Black Mountain, but it is situated in a quiet and lovely neighborhood. Asheville exploring and mountain hiking opportunities abound as well.
Manager response - Response from Greybeard Rentals
That's great that you loved Winnie's Place so much that you made a return visit this summer! I'm glad you enjoyed the time there. Thanks for the feedback and come back again soon!

I have rented many homes in Black Mountain, but this house was terrific. This was our daughters 1st trip to the mountains and she loved it. My daughter said when, "Winnie is ready to sell, she'll buy it'. My only recommendations: some steak knives, and salt for icy conditions, it had snowed on NYE and the stone steps were a bit slippery. Again thank you Winnie for a well stocked and a wonderfully warm mountain home.
Manager response - Response from Greybeard Rentals
Thank you so much for your thoughtful feedback! We're so glad you enjoyed your stay at Winnie's Place. It's a great home! The homeowner was very interested in your feedback. Our team is discussing ways to improve slippery conditions in icy weather. I'm also happy to report that the homeowner shared in response to your note about steak knives: "you can be assured that next time you visit they will be waiting for you, actually we should have thought of it when we bought the new gas grill."

My wife and I took our first vacation here in over 2 years to celebrate our anniversary. We pored over options all over the area and when we came to Greybeard we knew we were on to something. Picked Winnie's Place from a short list - and we are so glad we did!! It was fabulous and we had an amazing time!!! The only problem was.....we couldn't stay longer!! We can't wait to come back and enjoy it again - definitely one of the best times we've ever had!!! Great coffee a short walk away. Hiking and the Parkway so close we could do it every day. Near great restaurants of Asheville. Bed super comfy, kitchen fabulous for making your own meals, fire pit outside - enjoyed it for hours! Can't go wrong with Winnie's Place. Thank you!!

Winnie's cottage was a perfect get away for our family of four before dropping our son off at sleep away camp. The community of Cheshire feels private and quiet; we enjoyed the streams, beautiful vegetable garden, and playground with our kids. The restaurants in Cheshire were perfect for a couple meals, and the town of Black Mountain is only a 5 minute drive for additional options. The location was a near drive to activities in Asheville, Chimney Rock, Lake Lure and other attractions. Winnie's place is very comfortable and well maintained. We greatly appreciated how well stocked the home was, and loved our welcome pumpkin break and bottle of wine from Greybeard. It would be helpful to have a clearer idea of what consumeables are offered in the cabin. We brought a number of paper products based on check-in directions that we did not require, while other items, such as hand soap, were missing from some sinks. Overall, a wonderful vacation get away!
Manager response - Response from Greybeard Rentals
Winnie's a great home! I'm glad you were pleased with the stay there while you dropped your son off at camp.Thanks for your feedback. We supply a starter pack of paper towels, travel sized bath gels and a starter roll of toilet tissue. Generally, the other items are up to you to bring, which we list in our info letter that we send pre-arrival. In this, case, it sounds like someone had left their items for use which sometimes happens. Thank you for the feedback!

Winnie's Place was just the right size for our family of four. It was clean, well equipped, and offered plenty of light and mountain breezes.

Our family recently stayed at Winnie's Place in order to spend some time hiking around the Blue Ridge and visiting the Biltmore. The home is in a quiet picturesque neighborhood that is perfect for families of all ages. We loved the location and being able walk to a few restaurants, a coffeeshop, and having a playground in the neighborhood. Having a fireplace out back was such a nice bonus. Winnie's Place was very clean and Greybeard couldn't have been easier to work with during the rental process. The location is great for getting to Chimney Rock in one direction and the Biltmore in the other. We would definitely rent Winnie's Place again when visiting Asheville area.

We loved Winnie's Place and Cheshire Village. The rental agent was very helpful and informative before our stay and we had to contact her during our stay and she was attentive and wonderful.

The cabin was spacious and fully stocked. The porch was so peaceful as was the outdoor fireplace that we used each night.

We will absolutely come back to Winnie's Place. Thank you for sharing your "happy place" with others!

Cute, Cute, Cute! The ladies enjoyed our stay at Winnie's Place. We appreciated that well seasoned firewood was available and that we didn't need to run to the store for some. Very enjoyable to sit by the fire on the cool nights. The pumpkin bread was delicious and a nice welcome! Thank you! Definitely set up for only 4 people who don't mind sleeping in the same bed. :) One lady preferred to sleep on the upstairs couch and we had to scramble to provide her a blanket to use, but all worked out well. The doors were at first tricky to understand how to lock, but finally figured that out too. Very clean. Would work better with two couples, however there are no doors to the bedrooms even though you have privacy being on separate floors, sound travels. Loved the place, close to everything.

Sounds like you had a fun stay! :) Thanks for laying out some observations about the house layout - I'm sure this will be helpful to future guests too. Thanks again for the feedback and for staying with us at Winnie's Place!

Comfortable, Quiet and Spacious Mountain Getaway!

Loved this house. In a great location, close to the town and grocery shopping yet you feel very secluded. Kitchen is well equipped for cooking any meal and beds are comfortable. Love hardwood upstairs bedroom..makes those with allergies much more comfortable. Neighbors close if needed but not on top of you. We loved the outdoor fireplace and the swing on the porch. Greybeard Rental was most accommodating, friendly and professional. We will return!

We traveled with another couple to Charlotte to see the Panthers play and ended our trip with a 2 night stay at Winnie's. It was a wonderful end to a fun trip. We loved the area and the cabin was perfect! It had everything we needed plus some. We enjoyed the outdoor fireplace at night. It was close to shops and restaurants in Black Mountain. We would stay here again if we return to the area.
