Treasured time away

  • 5 of 5

The location, property, cleanliness, and kindness of the owner cannot be overstated. My husband and I took this trip for some downtime and restoration. The location was perfect for it as the cottage is located in what I described to someone as a ‘secret garden.’ I felt sequestered from the world. Our hostess was so intuitive. She knew the perfect blend of creating a welcoming, restorative, home-like atmosphere with giving us as much space as we wanted. The location is a safe, easy walk to most everything you could do in Black Mountain. When we were packing to come home this morning we were already talking about when we could return.

Perfect as advertised and Shirley is the perfect hostess!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was a wonderful home base from which to launch our exploration of the region. Close to Asheville, near the Blue Ridge Parkway, mountains, waterfalls, everything is nearby. Not to mention the town of Black Mountain itself. Full of great little shops with unique themes and items, good restaurants. It rained a lot when we were there, but in between the raindrops we made the best of it, and all the rain made the waterfalls spectacular. Shirley was wonderful, making sure we knew to ask for anything we needed and making great recommendations from dinner to bakery! We will be looking forward to our next time at Country Girl's Cottage out Back!

Wonderful guest cottage

  • 5 of 5

The guest cottage is very comfortable and well appointed. It is within walking distance of downtown Black Mountain which is full of restaurants and shops, although many are closed on Mondays. The garden between the houses is beautiful and it was very pleasant to have a place to sit outdoors. Shirley was a gracious hostess. We hope to visit again someday.

Loved the cottage, clean, and adorable. A lovely flower garden in the front and a fire pit to relax and sip wine. The cottage contains a binder with thoughtful suggestions for restaurants with menus, etc.

Shirley, our host, is the epitome of a southern charmer.

Things that may not suit everyone are the stairs to second floor bedroom- not a problem unless you have knee issues. Other thing is the rather hefty fee for using VRBO.
