Burntshirt Vintner’s Cottage
This charming 1939 stone cottage, with it’s delightful kitchen and enchanting nooks and crannies, is a pleasure to behold. When we renovated the Vintner’s Cottage we were intent on maintaining the vintage charm and warm cozy feeling. The kitchen is decorated in an endearing retro/vintage style. We have decorated the home with antiques, comfortable living room furniture and vintage accent pieces. The fireplace shown in the pictures is decorative only. It has 2 bedrooms (double beds), 1 full bath (bathtub and shower), and living room. The house has front and back porches. The house is located on the grounds of the vineyard and apple orchard, and boasts beautiful gardens,& walking trails. You will truly enjoy relaxing on the covered front porch at sunset with a glass of your favorite wine; the view is nothing short of spectacular as the vineyard is spread out before you! The back porch features a view of our iconic red barn, the apple orchard and flower gardens. At the close of the vineyard in the evening this bountiful expanse of property is yours to explore – enjoy a peaceful evening stroll when all you hear are the chirping of birds, the aroma of the flowers and the cool mountain breezes.

Burntshirt Vineyards Team purchased this cottage in 2012
We owned the land across the street and ventured into growing grapes for wine. The harvest was so excellent, we decided to make the wine ourselves rather than sell the grapes. So voila, we were in the wine making business and in need of a tasting room. We had the opportunity to purchase the apple orchard across the street from the vineyard. The property had nice craftsman style house which we turned into the tasting room and the lovely stone cottage. My wife, Sandra, couldn't wait to renovate and decorate the charming cottage; she kept the retro vintage feel she so dearly loved. She's quite talented as you can see from the pictures. She was intent on respecting the heritage of the family we purchased the property from and kept many items of significance to them and the history of the farm.
There is so much to love about staying at Vintner's Cottage, the retro style kitchen is fully equipped and the home is filled with antiques creating a relaxed comfortable atmosphere in the home. It's like being at a lovely bed and breakfast but with privacy! During the day you can take the winery tour, everyone meets at the tasting room at 2, and enjoys an informative tour. If you wish to have a nice picnic lunch, you can place your order the day before and your lunch will be delivered to the tasting room from A Day In The Country's Café on the Veranda around noon. The chicken salad is amazing! And of course you can enjoy a relaxing wine tasting at the tasting room and we even have a little gift shop on the grounds. We invite people to freely stroll about the gardens and enjoy the beauty and discover all the special areas on their own. Hendersonville has lots of really nice restaurants, like Mezzaluna and West First Pizza. Great atmosphere, friendly staff and top notch dishes for dinner. And on Saturday's enjoy the afternoon listening to an entertaining local musician either on the patio or at The Summit event center during inclement weather. Oh and don't forget, on Fridays we serve delightful appetizers with the wine tasting!
We stayed in the cottage for 2 days and we had an excellent experience. Customer service was very good and property was clean and maintained well. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a quiet place away from the city buzz.
My wife and I spent a couple of nights for our wedding anniversary, check in was a breeze, courteous hosts and of course wine readily available. The cottage itself was clean, authentically 'old' with appropriate decor and appliances, perfect size for two or four people with great outdoor space. The grounds perfect for a walk. Some people had complained about traffic noise because it is close to the street but we were not impacted, out exploring local sites/mountains during the day, traffic noise had waned by late evening into the night.
We had already done some wine tasting and hanging out at the vineyard in the past - recommend it, especially fall/winter with big fireplace burning.
Thank you for having us.
My sister and I stayed at the cottage for several nights. The only two negatives were the highway--which was a driveway length from the cottage. Conversation on the patio was difficult because of the road noise. The picture does not show that there are several stone steps that must be used to bring items into the house. BUT the kitchen was light and welcoming, the road noise didn't seem to disturb our sleeping, and we would stay there again. The grounds are beautiful for morning walks and we enjoyed the wine tasting. The location was perfect--close to the downtown area and grocery stores. Clean and cozy!
Charming but not really "senior"friendly. Full size beds too small for two. Bathroom space limited, no place to unpack suitcases except on the floor. We made it work for us but little improvements would be nice.
We loved out stay in the cottage it was charming and whimsical! The vineyard staff was wonderful, and the wine selection is lovely in the tasting room! The grounds are beautifully landscaped and perfect for morning or evening walks! Overall a wonderful experience!
