Thank you so much for opening your beautiful cottage to us. It was the perfect place for a Bachelorette weekend - small enough to provide a cozy and intimate atmosphere, but big enough for a dance party in the living room!
This cottage, a brief drive from downtown (I think we clocked it at 7 minutes, with stoplights), is absolutely adorable...an old cabin which has been stoned on the outside, well-fenced - great for folks with dogs (we have a Border Collie), outdoor fireplace, deck, outdoor hot tub, and well-tended grounds. Inside, the real talents of the landlady, Georgia, become apparent: her extensive education and experience as an interior designer and architect are undeniable - the place is adorable, cozy, well-appointed. Curl up in the kitchen nook, read a book in front of the fireplace, take a bath in the beautifully renovated master bath. The cottage is a perfect place from which to explore Asheville or the Blue Ridge. And the landlady is a real delight...but that's ANOTHER story...
The property is charming, comfortable, very well appointed, and has a great vibe. Beautifully landscaped grounds, lovely areas to bring your party outdoors, and very private - yet, close to anything you might need during your stay. Just rustic enough to feel like a mountain hideaway, but with lots of nice amenities and little extras I didn't expect. I will definitely be back!
Georgia was a wonderful hostess! She added little special touches like cookies, wine and even a dog treat for our golden retriever! Hard to find a place of such charm and quality that accepts dogs. She out did herself and thought of everything. No complaints here! We will be back, thank you for a wonderful week!
The Red Gate Cottage is exactly what we were hoping for during our stay in Asheville! I traveled with my boyfriend and two other couples. The cottage had everything we needed for our stay, and the personal touches made us feel incredibly welcome! We cooked a couple of breakfasts in the well-stocked kitchen, and then gathered around the wonderful kitchen table to plan our days. The gas fireplace made the cottage feel so cozy (what a beautiful stone surround!) and took the slight edge off the somewhat wet March weather. The location was very convenient for everything we were looking to do, including hiking, brewery visits, and checking out downtown.
