The 'Apple Orchard Riverfront Cottage' Just a quick block off the Interstate and not too far from Asheville you soon find yourself traveling quietly through an apple orchard on a quaint narrow mountain road which suddenly explodes into a riverfront vista complete with rushing rapids right in the front yard of a truly lovely cottage surrounded by plant pots filled with vegetation and glorious blossoming flowers, weather permitting. You're smiling and haven't even parked the car yet. Off to the right you will see the challenge of a bright new shuffleboard court (final planning stage) beckoning some good old family competition later, and think what a nice way to bring everyone together.

You're smiling and haven't even parked the car yet. Off to the right you will see the challenge of a bright new shuffleboard court (final planning stage) beckoning some good old family competition later, and think what a nice way to bring everyone together. To enhance the experience you find an exterior deck right off the living room that affords a more leisurely opportunity to sit and reflect on this lovely river view while the sounds of rushing waters subtlety background your relaxed conversation with loved ones. As you eventually return inside to a colorful gathering room filled with endless hardwood floors and luscious warm room colors you enjoy the warmth of a flickering fire in a room filled with family and friends. You're now in the 'Apple Orchard Riverfront Cottage'. Inside you soon discover three large bedrooms with amazingly comfortable beds and two beautiful spotless bathrooms, complete with hardwood floors. Throughout the cottage wonderful eclectic furnishings hand selected by caring, keen eyes continue to intrigue and peak both your interest and curiosity. Your exploration soon finds a wonderfully bright and cheerful, newly-remodeled kitchen well equipped and filled with just about any type of gadgetry required to prepare the tastiest hors d'oeuvres or a gourmet meal for eight. Nothing has been left to wishful thinking. A beautiful kitchen island topped in mountain hardwood beckons you to sit, sip coffee or open a bottle of wine to quietly linger and savior this moment. No kids for a moment, just the two of you. And as you sit and sip, be it coffee or wine, to ponder the day's potential; you realize how many wonderful opportunities await you here in the Great Smoky Mountains. You may decide to take a long leisurely walk right here at home along almost a mile of river frontage and ending in the apple orchards or bee hive stands where you might buy apples, peaches and honey. Perhaps you decide a quick drive into Asheville for a leisurely day of exploring the Biltmore or The Grove Park Inn, or all the neat restaurants and shops. For those more inclined to physical activity you might find yourself planning on rafting the rapids or tubing right in front of your cottage or zip lining the tree canopies near Asheville, or all the above. In fall, you may want to hike the mountain trails to view the vivid fall colors, knowing it's a must see. And later in the year you may plan on the challenge of skiing the slopes of Cataloochee, just minutes away. Regardless of your choice of so many varied things to do and see, one thing is truly certain: you ultimately will enjoy coming home again and again to the warmth and caring found nestled in your lovely home away from home, the 'Apple Orchard Riverfront Cottage'.

I adored everything about this property. The character of the old home, all of the land, the river. It was so quiet and peaceful minus the family. The air was fresh. Plenty of places for my dogs to explore. On the downside, there are no...More

I love old houses - absolutely adore them - so it was such a treat to stay in such a beautifully preserved home in the most relaxing setting. The house is off the pages of a magazine, and its many indoor and outdoor living areas...More
