The SpaceThe spacious High Tower is nestled in a forest cove near the Asheville watershed. The views are spectacular, and the feeling is peaceful seclusion. High Tower is a two-unit chalet, fully furnished, and accommodates up to 14 guests. The upper unit may be occupied simultaneously by another guest or party. Guest AccessEach unit has a fully functioning kitchen, with electrical range/oven, coffee pot, toaster, microwave, and cookware.

Interaction with GuestsI direct operations and programs at Eagle Rock Farm which is located down the road within walking distance of the High Tower. I will try to be available to walk through our rental upon guests arrival. The NeighborhoodSummer haven is an old, 1920's neighborhood that has remained small and forested. Surrounding housing is sparse, which gives High Tower a secluded feel. Getting AroundThere is a public bus stop at nearby Warren Wilson College, it will take you into downtown Asheville or Black Mountain.

The SpaceOur beloved Waterfall Cottage is perfect for an individual or couple who wish to experience the best of both worlds, the peaceful zen of the woods with two mountain streams which come together on our property as well as being within 15 minutes driving distance to both downtown Asheville and Black Mountain (where you will find great abundance of amazing restaurants, shopping, nightlife and other attractions). The cottage contains a queen size bed. There is also a small living space with a futon plus table/chairs for 2 people, full bathroom (from which you have a view of our small waterfall), and a cozy galley kitchen (for simple food preparation). Your own private back deck also overlooks the water. The cottage is located on one acre of land in the Buckeye Cove Community of Swannanoa (between Asheville and Black Mountain). The "main house", where my husband Jason and I live, sits about 50 feet from Waterfall Cottage. If you like, you may also meander along the woodland path which we created along the perimeter of the property. We are eager to share our little piece of paradise with likehearted souls! NOTE: Most guests at Waterfall Cottage are not able to get a signal on their cellphone. Usually driving a short distance out of our cove will restore your cellphone signal. We have Wifi on the property, however guests' ability to connect to it is not guaranteed. Devices such as tablets and laptops seem to connect better than cellphones. Also provided: -TV with Roku including Netflix -Air conditioning/Heat -Refrigerator -Coffee maker(fresh local coffee and tea provided) -Toaster oven and Microwave oven -Blender -Two electric NuWave brand burners for cooking -Basic cookware/cooking utensils -Flatware service for 4 people, glasses, mugs, etc. -Standard staples such as dishsoap, handsoap, cooking oil, sugar/honey, salt/pepper. Jason and I have been practicing massage therapists in the Asheville area since 2001. For an additional charge, you can also book a single or couples massage with us for during your visit. Massage sessions will take place on-site in Waterfall Cottage. Massage therapy rates are: $75 per 70-minute session ($150 for couples massage) $100 per 90-minute session ($200 for couples massage) (We prefer that massage sessions are scheduled ahead of time before your arrival if possible.) Guest AccessGuests are of course free to enjoy the privacy of the cottage as well as to explore (if they so choose) the property's woodland path and/or sit on the bench next to the waterfall. A walk on the roads in our quiet, woodsy neighborhood can be delightful as well. If hiking is your thing, we are also only 10 minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway and the trails of Warren Wilson College as well as 25 minutes from many hiking possibilites in Montreat. Jason and I do not consider the main house to be a shared space, however it is totally OK if you want/need to come to front door for any reason that may arise. We want to make ourselves as available as possible for both friendly interactions with our guests as well as for guiding guests as much or as little as is requested during their stay. I would say that, as a rule, we usually err on the side of giving guests as much privacy as may be desired. Also, guests booked for more than a 5-night stay are welcome to use the washer/dryer in the main house as needed. Access to other area attactions/amenities: Closest supermarket(Ingles) - 7 min. Whole Foods/ Earth Fare/Trader Joes - 15 min. Biltmore Estate - 20 min. Warren Wilson College - 10 min. Blue Ridge Parkway entrance - 10 min. Regarding our flexible check-in, I will try to accommodate guests' check-in preferences as best as I can. It might be good to communicate about check-in time before making a reservation. Since my schedule and other obligations vary from day to day, I may or may not be able to offer you as early of a check-in as you may need/want for your travel plans. Interaction with GuestsJason and I will be present next door in the main house (where we live with our two cats, Liam and Lyle) during your stay. We want to do all that we can to ensure both your comfort at Waterfall Cottage and that you have the richest experience possible here in the mountains of North Carolina. Depending on the day, we have a tendency to come and go quite a bit. We also, from time to time, see local massage therapy clients in the main house. On nice evenings, you may just catch us taking our own walk along the woodland path with Liam and Lyle, one of our favorite family activities. We trust that we are attracting visitors who share a mutual respect for both privacy and autonomy. AND, in setting our intention for the co-created experience of appreciation, comfort, harmony, peace, freedom, connection, and fun...we invite interactions with our guests which flow with the ease of the soothing mountain stream that serenades us here in our cove. Getting AroundThere is no convenient public transit for Waterfall Cottage. Guests must plan on having their own vehicle for transportation. We are located around 25 minutes from Asheville Regional airport. Other Things to NoteWe like to do our best at keeping Waterfall Cottage an acceptable enviroment for people who deal with allergies to cats. Please do your best to not allow either cat to come into the cottage (especially for an extended period of time). No other pets are allowed on the property. As is the case in many pockets of our mountains, you may not have a cell phone signal here in the cove. U.S.Cellular and Verizon seem to do OK here, but there is no guarantee with your particular provider. We do have a landline at the main house if you have strong need to place or receive phonecalls during your stay (to be used on a limited basis). We will provide you with exact directions prior to your arrival. Do not follow Mapquest. Your GPS may get you here, but we prefer to make sure you have our homemade directions too.

The SpaceEnjoy yourself for 2 nights or more on our 18 acre farm in the prettiest valley in the Asheville, NC region (the Swannanoa Valley). Located next to Warren Wilson College, we have vacation rental homes on our farm that are available from mid-November thru mid-March and from Sunday thru Wednesday during other months of the year. Enjoy amazing views of the northern Craggie Mountains, with sunsets like no other, beautiful gardens on our farm, and access to the Swannanoa River and over 25 miles of hiking trails, right from your door step. We're the best kept secret in town for vacation rentals! This home is has a great deck overlooking the valley, a side yard for picnics and access to the farm. Guests are just 10 minutes from downtown Asheville and 8 minutes from Black Mountain. A five minute drive gets you to the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Biltmore Estate and more mountain attractions. There is a kitchen with modest cooking implements, service for 20, W/D, wi-fi, TV with cable. We're unique in that we are one of the few remaining farms, this close into Asheville that has been undeveloped. Because our neighbor is Warren Wilson College (who owns 1100 acres of the valley), the region is pristine. Our prices are affordable and we are known for our kind and attentive service. We want you to enjoy the mountains and come back to visit us again. We can also provide additional services such as catered food, tours, etc. Guest AccessThere are 25 miles of hiking trails accessible from this house. Guests can walk on the farm, be by the river, gorgeous flower gardens in season, and just chill on the deck. Guests can rent a carriage ride around the property with our draught horse, Dr. Love. Just inquire! Interaction with GuestsI try to meet the guests when they check in. My cell phone is provided and I can respond to any necessary calls. A property manager is on duty with any issues that may arise during your stay. The NeighborhoodThis home is in one of the few remaining largely open valleys close to Asheville. We are a neighbor to Warren Wilson College, who owns 1100 acres of land, has cattle farms, 700 acres of managed forests etc. There are modest homes on the road that gets you to our farm and in the trees behind us there are million dollar homes. It is a typical southern, mixed neighborhood. This home is not palatial by any means, but it's neat and clean and capable of comfortably hosting a good sized group. Getting AroundThere is a bus stop just 1/2 mile away. You can travel to and from Asheville and Black Mountain from this stop. Other Things to NoteThere is a fireplace in the home but it is not working. There is a propane insert, but we do not hook it up due to problems with guests knowing how to work it properly/safety reasons. While we know the ambiance of a fire would be nice, we have unfortunately had to decide not to have it hooked up because of peoples' various levels of comfort with propane operation. The shower in the basement is a standup unit that is small. The nozzle on the shower should be placed toward the back of the shower. Otherwise, you will get splashed when you turn it on. There are a lot of cabinets in the kitchen. The dishes are kept in the cabinet above the dishwasher. There is a binder in the kitchen that has house rules and information. Please make sure to read this, as it contains the password for the internet and other important information.

        This secluded cabin was built in 1947 from logs grown on the surrounding 16 acres of land. On the ridge above, EW Grove had intended to build a second Grove Park Inn. Though his passing ended his plans, the switchback roads built to the site are etched into the hillside and the driveway partially follows that original access. Fully renovated, the cabin has a cathedral ceiling, great room with a stone fireplace and exposed beams, knotty pine paneling throughout, cedar-lined closets, hardwood and tile floors and fabulous views. A geothermal heat pump installed in 2012 provides instant, green energy to heat and cool. From the quiet privacy of the front porch, downtown Black Mountain is less than 10 minutes east and downtown Asheville is 20 minutes west of the cabin. For nature lovers, wild turkey and bear are regularly spotted on the property. For hikers, your adventure begins just beyond the French doors of the sun porch. For LEAF Festival attendees at Camp Rockmont, this property is adjacent to the festival site. Granny & Pa's cabin includes: WiFi, Roku TV, dishwasher, washer/dryer, gas grill. 2 queen beds, 1 double, 1 twin Additional amenities include: wood stove, coffee maker, secluded, close to town, nearby medical services, nearby grocery, private, cookware, washer & dryer, ironing board.
