We had a wonderful time in Red Gate Cottage!
Georgia, the manager, was responsive and very helpful from my first inquiry; and left homemade cookies, note, and a bottle of wine for us. The cottage is authentically rustic on the outside and modernized and cozy on the inside. The beds are very comfortable and the bathrooms are very nicely remodeled. We loved the gas fireplace! Overall, everything was thoughtfully done and arranged. Red Gate Cottage has a mountain feel but is very close to town.
Georgia makes EVERY effort to ensure this is a special place. The kitchen has everything, from spices to all utensils. Private yet near downtown. Dogs welcome and even dog treats waiting, not to mention the bottle of wine for humans! Outdoor and indoor at its rustic best, It could not have been better!

Thank you so much for opening your beautiful cottage to us. It was the perfect place for a Bachelorette weekend - small enough to provide a cozy and intimate atmosphere, but big enough for a dance party in the living room!
This cottage, a brief drive from downtown (I think we clocked it at 7 minutes, with stoplights), is absolutely adorable...an old cabin which has been stoned on the outside, well-fenced - great for folks with dogs (we have a Border Collie), outdoor fireplace, deck, outdoor hot tub, and well-tended grounds. Inside, the real talents of the landlady, Georgia, become apparent: her extensive education and experience as an interior designer and architect are undeniable - the place is adorable, cozy, well-appointed. Curl up in the kitchen nook, read a book in front of the fireplace, take a bath in the beautifully renovated master bath. The cottage is a perfect place from which to explore Asheville or the Blue Ridge. And the landlady is a real delight...but that's ANOTHER story...
The property is charming, comfortable, very well appointed, and has a great vibe. Beautifully landscaped grounds, lovely areas to bring your party outdoors, and very private - yet, close to anything you might need during your stay. Just rustic enough to feel like a mountain hideaway, but with lots of nice amenities and little extras I didn't expect. I will definitely be back!
