Our place is close to and halfway in between Asheville, NC and Lake Lure, NC. You’ll love it because of the coziness, privacy, high ceilings, location, and views. Kenzie's Cottage is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers.
As guests at Kenzie's Cottage, you will enjoy privacy yet rest secure in the knowledge that we are just a phone call and/or several steps away, if you need anything. We can help you find what you're looking for in the Asheville or Lake Lure area and are familiar with area hiking opportunities. We are only a few miles from several beautiful Hickory Nut Gorge trails. (By the way, the path outside the cottage's front door leads to a couple of short but beautiful forest trails!) The driveway to the cottage is very long and lined with trees - so you really do have lots of privacy here. We believe you'll enjoy your stay. And, by the way, especially if this is your first time vacationing in the mountains, the cottage has air conditioning and heat, so you'll be snug in your own vacation paradise.
The space is complete in and of itself. There is a kitchenette with sink, microwave, and mini-refrigerator. There is no laundry room.
Interaction with guests
You will have our cell phone numbers to connect with us at your convenience. Our house is also located directly across from the cottage - about 60 feet away. So when we're home we are just a quick stroll away. In other words, you will have complete privacy unless you need something from us!
Other things to note
We periodically work in the yard close to the property immediately surrounding the cottage. Though you might see us out and about during your stay, we will respect your privacy.
- Request no eating outdoors to keep from encouraging the interest of coyotes or bears.
- We will take responsibility for removing trash and recyclables from the cottage after your stay.
- The cottage is ideally suited for one dog of small or medium size that accompanies you. The cottage is surrounded by the forest and so you will want to be confident your dog will come when called or be prepared to use a leash when outside the cottage. Also, it's best to not leave your dog unattended in the cottage. Rather, plan to take him or her with you on your outings. So far, folks who have brought their dogs are coming here to hike with their dogs and have come at a time of year when it's safe to leave their dog in the car while they go to restaurants and coffee shops.
- Our dog Daisy is friendly. She likes to greet people and dogs. She does appear a little high strung until she has said hello, at which point she is so content she appears bored. However, unless she is with us, we keep her fenced in. So you and your dog will have comfortable access to and from your car.
