Overview

About the property

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 Etowah

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.

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

The pictures do not do this place justice!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this place justice! The view was incredible, no matter what time of day you were at the house. We came up for a girls weekend, and any time that was spent at the house, we were hanging out on that glorious porch!!! Everything was super clean and easily accessible and our hosts were very communicative on any questions we had!!!

Clean, Spacious and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. After a long day of hiking, this was a wonderful place to kick back and relax on the porch and enjoy the mountain views, read a book, take a nap or watch a football game. We loved it and hope to come back soon.

Quiet country home with great view

  • 5 of 5

Barbara,

Most of all we loved (a) the screened in front porch where we ate all our meals and sat for many hours enjoying the mountain views and (b) the courtesy of good internet to help us scout out the local hiking trails, and Netflix. My wife was also very complimentary of your decorating and I enjoyed your husband's many framed photographs.

Thanks for hosting us.

Comfortable,relaxing and wonderful views from screened porch!

  • 5 of 5

This home was just what we were looking for - in the country, out of town yet close enough to everything. We (2 couples) used it as home base for a week to enjoy Asheville/Brevard area. Loved sitting on the screened in porch in AM to read and in the evening to watch the sun disappear behind the mountains and admire the beautiful sunsets 🌅?. Even on hot days the porch fans stirred the air and it was comfortable!!

Barbara was great to work with- answered questions and made suggestions when asked.

We did not cook at home much but found the kitchen well stocked for cooking. Only thing missing there was a blender. Also King bedroom fan was not working which would have been nice at night. No problem for us- we slept wonderfully under the beautiful quilt!

We definitely recommend this home for a relaxed stay! Try Dutch Cupboard for breakfast - great home cooking and reasonable and friendly staff and customers! Also think about enjoying a night at Flatrock Playhouse.
