About Susan Eggerton
I live in Asheville and am available at any time for specific needs. I have several rental properties so am usually scurrying around tending to one of them! The house is suitable for kids. In fact it is a great area for children. It is very safe. There is a big field w/ a pavilion that can be used for small groups and a small stream that is great to play in. There is however a pond so supervision is a must! The Gerton area holds a special place in my heart. We use this house quite often. The community is very welcoming, should you choose to join them in any of their events such as 4th of July fireworks or covered dish suppers. I am an avid tennis player and love to be outdoors, so am available to set a match for or with you in Asheville! My husband and I ride motorcycles, so should that be your passion as well, we can sure point you to some lovely rides. I think you will be very comfortable here!
Susan Eggerton purchased this Cottage in 1998
Why Susan Eggerton chose Gerton
Gerton is close to Asheville yet this small formerly vacation community still has a very 50's feel, as though you have gone back in time. Peaceful!
What makes this Cottage unique
You can't beat this location for a vacation rental! You are 15 minutes from Lake Lure with its restaurants, the beach, boating, golf, tennis courts. Rumbling Bald provides climbers delight. Chimney Rock Park is truly a wonder to see, with great hiking trails. There are also free hiking trails in very close proximity. Asheville is a 20-30 minute, easy beautiful drive and has a ton of things to do and see. Hendersonville is approx. 30 minutes away, as is Black Mountain. The house has a lovely deck. The wireless reaches here so enjoy reading or catching up on the news while staring at the mountains each morning. Ahhh.... There is a grill on the deck as well.

Peaceful and quiet, very relaxing cabin!
My husband and I stayed here for two months this summer. The cabin had everything we needed for our stay. Susan has the cabin well stocked for guests, with plenty of dishes, towels, and linens. She was a wonderful hostess,checking on us without being intrusive. We loved the neighborhood, walking along the lake and small creeks. We spent most of our time on the front porch, enjoying the wildlife and cool mountain breezes. We would definitely return!
This home was the most warm and comfortable home I ever rented! I had a wonderful time!
Thank you, Julie, for this great review. Do come again!

Our second time staying at this wonderful home
Our second time staying at this wonderful home. We loved it so much last year we decided to make it our fall colors home base.
The Gerten Big House Is very convenient to all our favorite things in and around Hendersonville and Asheville. The house itself is fully equipped and very comfortable… And Susan is a wonderful hostess. We will keep coming back.
Gerton is a vintage vacation community and still imparts that old world charm. Its relaxed and peaceful, yet is an easy, beautiful drive into Asheville or Lake Lure for some city fun!
