About Carl and Valerie

Valerie and I are transplants from deep in the woods of Maine. We came here on vacation in January of 2012. We had read that people come here and hear the mountains calling them. We heard, went home, packed up, sold the house and here we are. We have never regretted our move.

We are laid back, "go with the flow" people. We have 2 lazy house cats and Sid, The Mayor. Sid is an older Jack Russel with a sweet disposition. He is a gentle old man that prefers non aggressive breeds.

Carl and Valerie purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Carl and Valerie chose Asheville Area

We chose this house because our land is so beautiful. When we bought it, it had been vacant for years . We have spent the past few years bringing our land back to a beautiful, park like setting.

It is constantly evolving with interesting plans for the future.

What makes this cottage unique

We are so close to a multitude of attractions, but when you come home, you are in a safe, peaceful area with views of the mountain tops. We have turkeys, the occasional cow, and chickens that wander through our yard. At night you can hear the tree frogs and owls calling.

We have a large variety of birds that visit the feeders, perfect for birdwatching.

A Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

Me, my wife and my dog all stayed here recently and loved our stay. It's the best kind of VRBO, you can tell the owners really look after and care about the place, it's immediately apparent that they put a ton of thought into the cottage, doing a lot with a small space. Valerie is the best kind of VRBO host: accessible, kind and helpful, but not intrusive. She was quick with hiking suggestions and points of interest, and was lovely to our dog, which is always appreciated.

It's a great place. You should absolutely stay here. You'll love it.

Our little home was perfect for the 2 of us and a dog. The owners were amazing and so nice. Super close to food and shops, 12 miles from Asheville. In a good spot, so its nice and quiet. Very relaxing.

Excellent. very well maintained.

  • 5 of 5

My daughter joined me for my visit, who lives in N. C., and we fell in love with the cottage. The area is so beautiful, and the grounds and back yard are very relaxing. It was very clean, all necessities were furnished and Valerie and Carl are lovely and very accommodating. I would stay again if I don't move to N. C. So quite and comfortable. Very nice for two to three people. I would recommend highly.

Home away from home. One of the best vacations stays I've had.

  • 5 of 5

This property is a quaint beauty. Valerie was a lovely hostess. Very friendly and accommodating. Dog friendly too. My dog enjoyed the property as much as I did. The house / cottage was well stocked with anything you could need. If it wasn't there, Valerie likely did and she's next door. The bed was uber comfortable and the property is breathtaking. The fenced in backyard oasis was a bonus. Stores, eateries and Asheville are just minutes away. I feel as though I've found my home away from home and a friend for life. I will definitely be back. This property meets and exceeds expectations. LOVED IT!!

Cozy Comfort

  • 5 of 5

This place was exactly what my wife, 2 dogs, and I needed for a nice weekend getaway. Every possible need tended to before we arrived. There were even treats for the pups and us along with a nice welcome note. We will be staying again.
