Our Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Cowtail cottage was absolutely perfect! We have stayed in rentals before and none have been as nice as Cowtail Cottage. The location was perfect and all the little extras that were included made for a wonderful vacation. The sheets and towels were all included as well as coffee and all the fixings. even a big bowl of cookies! If you are going to visit the Asheville/Black Mountain area I would definitely recommend Cowtail. Especially nice for families. Even a playhouse in the back yard!

What a wonderful place! A true gem!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we booked through the locking the door as we left, we truly enjoyed this experience.

We have stayed at a handful of VRBO type rentals and this was our best experience without a doubt.

Allison was very kind, accessible and seemed ready to assist with anything we could need at any point through the process and during our stay.

We had a large group and The Cowtail accommodated us perfectly. The rental was equipped with everything you could need for a pleasant stay and more. The King bed was without a doubt the most comfortable bed in a VRBO that I've ever experienced. Nice touches like a little firewood and some coffee, cream and sugar on the counter made us feel welcome through our stay.

The property was lovely and quiet. It was situated next to a small farm and we enjoyed the visits and views of the cows, horse and dog.

Overall, it's an easy recommendation to make. The Cowtail Cottage will offer a lovely experience.

Beautiful cottage in convenient location (plus cows!)

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at Cowtail for a long weekend. Our kids loved seeing the cows and horses in the yard behind and to the right of the house (like other reviewers have said, it's also great that you can see them but not smell them). We also loved the fire pit, the playhouse/swing set, and the overall cleanliness and appearance of the house. It was great to have two living room spaces with TVs, etc. Although there's not really a neighborhood for walking, the house was had plenty of outdoor space to explore and the location was very convenient to Black Mountain and Asheville, which was fantastic. The owner was tremendously responsive and extremely helpful. We will definitely be returning to Cowtail!

Beautiful home is quaint setting

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this super clean, tastefully decorated, well-stocked home. The beds were all comfy and having two dens with large TVs allowed teens to have their own space. We will definitely be back.
