The Cottage on Town Mountain offers the best of two worlds. Privacy is provided in a setting of towering evergreens and surrounding gardens. Every vantage offers beautiful views, some of them spectacular vistas of distant mountains to the south. Sunsets in the west often reflect off clouds to the east that turn from crimson to pink.

Once you are at The Cottage, it is hard to believe that you are just over two miles and five minutes from Asheville’s bustling city center and all it has to offer. Excellent restaurants with diverse cuisines, museums and art galleries, cafes, coffee houses and bars with great entertainment, theatre, antique stores and other unique retailers, four independent booksellers, wine markets that are the envy of visitors from much larger cities, and outstanding architecture are minutes away from The Cottage.

So is the Blue Ridge Parkway, just five minutes up Town Mountain in the other direction. The Folk Art Center is one exit away on the Parkway. Located on land once owned by the developer of the Grove Park Inn, The Cottage is just up the mountain from that famed resort and a stones throw from the North Carolina Governor’s Western Residence.
