Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Etowah - Guest House on Little Mountain

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Our 'Guest House on Little Mountain' is the vacation home you’ll want to return to year after year. Beautiful, comfortable decor sets just the right mood for relaxing during your mountain getaway. The cozy furnishings for reading or watching widescreen TV may make you reluctant to leave and go out exploring! Enjoy your morning coffee and evening dinner on the covered front porch, where you can observe sunsets, deer grazing, birds feeding and white squirrels robbing the bird feeders! When day fades into bedtime, you will enjoy snuggling under the unique quilts and plush comforters that define the character of each bedroom.

The back of the Guest House looks up a wooded mountainside with glimpses of a small Civil War era rock quarry. From the front porch and bedrooms, enjoy a 180+ degree view of the mountains.

On the other side of the private road from the Guest House is the old Eade Farm, which dates back to the 1800's.

The Guest House on Little Mountain is ideally located for our guests to take full advantage of all the wonderful amenities offered by the cities of Brevard, Hendersonville and Asheville. Yet it is nestled in a peaceful oasis in the Smoky Mountain countryside. The Pisgah National Forest and Dupont State Forest recreation areas are only a short drive away.

The house is available throughout the four seasons and since it is located just down the lane from our home, we look forward to having you as our neighbors and friends.

About Barbara Bothe

Our Guest House is located on the property where we are full time residents. Tonight I am sitting on the front porch watching an exquisite sunset over the Blue Ridge Mountains. I've never been able to memorize the view because it changes constantly as the light and shadows move across the mountains. The deer were out a little earlier grazing in the tall grass. It's close to full moon so I expect we will be serenaded by the coyotes again this evening.

Barbara Bothe purchased this house in 2007

Why Barbara Bothe chose North Carolina

We built the Guest House to be a home for our parents. They were elderly and wanted it to ultimately be a vacation rental home. They wanted to be close to us and they both loved this area so much. They were both thrilled that families would someday come and take advantage of the opportunity to be out in the country and enjoy the peacefulness. Mother died two weeks after the home was completed. Daddy stayed living with us on the property but so enjoyed meeting our guests and knowing that they were enjoying his home.

What makes this house unique

The view, the quiet and the feeling of luxury are the things that most people comment on when staying in our Guest House. It sits nearly at the end of country lane which is delightful for morning and evening strolls. Just down the way is a small donkey ranch and there are often young foals to pet. It's hard to get off the porch most of the time because the view is so lovely, but the inside furniture and beds are awfully cozy. Some guests say it's hard to get out of bed in the morning.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This has been a pleasure. The view is fantastic. Everything is perfect.

Very nice home in a very nice area!

  • 5 of 5

This home is very well equipped, comfortable & cozy. The rooms are large. The kitchen is huge with every appliance, cookware & dinnerware we needed. We planned to do a lot of outdoor activities and chose this house to its proximity to the Pisgah National forest, the Duoint state forest & reasonably close to Asheville.

The home is located in a beautiful area with many other beautiful homes and plenty of wild life. It's very serene. We had breakfast on the screened in porch and had the pleasure of seeing deer run through the yard.

The owners were also very accommodating and were attentive to our satisfaction. We'll be back!

Beautiful views

  • 4 of 5

My husband, our dog and I recently spent one week in Barbara's home. We found the house to be very clean with lovely views of the mountains from the screened in porch. The location is very secluded but only a 20 minute drive into Hendersonville where we found many dog friendly restaurants with patio dining. Barbara and her husband Brian were very accommodating.

Another delightful 2 weeks of peaceful rest and relaxation is over. The owners are very nice and always accomodating. A roomy kitchen, two spacious bedrooms, a master suite with an extremely comfortable king size bed, and a large screened in porch with fantastic views make it hard to leave for home. Can't wait to come back to September!

Comfortable and Peaceful

The home was spacious, well-equipped, and comfortable, and the surrounding neighborhood of Etowah was quiet and peaceful. We really enjoyed our stay, and will plan to return.

Felt like we were at home!

  • 5 of 5

How fortunate we were to find and rent this home. It was perfect for our family. Close to so much so we were out and about a lot, but enjoyed our time at the house just as much. It included everything we needed plus extras! Barbara was so helpful and accommodating. Would definitely recommend this home!

Great place

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed your vacation home in the mountains. Easy to get to. Roomy and the pictures you posted were accurate. We enjoyed the screened in front porch. King size bed was wonderful. Those are so hard to find in vacation homes.
