Perfect writer's retreat or family getaway, we've covered every detail so you can unplug and relax at Edinburgh Cottage at Loch Lure. A beautiful 1960's cottage with 3 BR and 2 baths, plus open kitchen/ dining/ living room with cathedral ceiling and gas fireplace. The house also boasts a sunroom with large windows to enjoy both forest and lake views.
Conveniently located near Chimney Rock and Asheville, with a sandy beach/ waterpark, outdoor activities, spas, restaurants, golf, & more nearby.
Furnished and decorated with love, Edinburgh Cottage is sure to be your favorite cozy little home away from home. There are games to play, puzzles to do, novels to read, and even writer's guides to inspire your creativity and help you overcome writer's block.
Please note we do NOT currently have internet, cable TV, or a landline phone. We do have a TV, DVDs, and bluray player though ...just in case you want to veg out. ;-) This is a truly tranquil getaway.
We also have a charcoal grill now! (Charcoal not provided)
It has a propane fireplace to keep you feeling cozy in the winter (though the HVAC works just fine!) and the lake views from the sunroom will be a pleasure all year round-- even in the summer, when the trees are full, the sun glinting off the lake makes sunsets spectacular.
On a practical note, the house boasts updated plumbing, HVAC, a security system, washer/dryer, crawl space, and a large latticed storage area down below to keep your canoes, kayaks, bicycles, and other outdoor equipment contained.
Its 4-season landscaping will keep you happy even when the lilies, roses, gladiolas, rhododendrons, and other flowers are not in bloom. The stone paths add a picturesque touch and offer a lovely path between the home, storage shed, stone bench, side porch (with spiral staircase), and wooden double swing.
Smartlock with keypad entry makes check-in and returning home a breeze while you're here. There's no key to remember, and you'll never lock yourself out with your easy-to-remember personalized numeric keycode.

Hi and welcome!
I'm David and I'm originally from Edinburgh, Scotland. I met my wife when she was there for graduate school. We moved to America, got married, and now have the best, cutest, and smartest son in the whole world (not that we're biased ;-)). We moved to the Asheville, NC area a few years ago and love it here in the mountains.
Whenever we go back home to Edinburgh, we always get a flat with a kitchen and living room so we can save money, have more space, and stay longer. Because of that, we know what amenities are most useful in a vacation rental. We think we've covered everything you'll need for a comfortable holiday in our home away from home and hope it becomes your favorite home away from home.
As for work, I'm a web developer and my wife is an author and business consultant. We work from home, so while our schedule isn't 100% flexible (having a baby changes that), we're readily available if you need us during your stay. We look forward to making you welcome in our cozy little "Edinburgh Cottage at Loch Lure."
