Just minutes to downtown, but surrounded by farms and wildlife! Lucky W Cottage is located on the grounds of Lucky W Farm in the Beaverdam Valley of North Asheville.
Lucky W Cottage is a 1925 guest house and is situated over our detached garage. It has approximately 800 sq.ft. of newly remodeled and upgraded living space. It is private and is located 100 ft or so from the main house where we live with our three boys. The cottage has one bedroom with a queen-size antique bed, a living room area with a queen-size fold-out sofa, a generous, contemporary kitchen, a walk-in closet and a modern bathroom with a large mosaic tile shower. The decor is a fun mix of new and old. It has wi-fi and a TV for DVD's or Netflix. Enjoy your morning coffee or late night apertif alfresco on the private bistro table and chairs.
We will provide all linens, coffee and farm fresh eggs.
There are many places to discover on our small patch of 8 acres. Enjoy a swim in the pool or make a fire in the fire pit in the front yard. It is situated with a great view. Meander along the farm road and end up at the post and beam barns to interact with the horses.
Interaction with Guests
We have had guests come in and sit in the kitchen of the main house and we have had guests we hardly see. We are present on the property, but we try to give our guests a lot of "space". The cottage is very private even though it is situated a hundred feet or so from the main house.
The Beaverdam Valley is a special place with lots of history and lots of good people. What I love about it is that we live in a rural setting but are very close to downtown Asheville. We have wonderful views and lots of wildlife and are only minutes away from almost everything we might need.
There is public transportation, but one must hoof-it to the nearest bus stop which is at least 1/2 mile down the road. We have had guests use taxi service, but most guests use a car. Parking is always available right at the cottage.
Other Things to Note
No children under 8 years of age.
We have lots and lots of animals here on our farm and they are all free-roaming (except the horses). Please come enjoy ours, but we have a no pet policy for Lucky W Cottage. We are sorry for this, but for the safety of all the animals (yours and ours), we think this the best policy.
Please care for our cottage as if it were your own. We have worked long and hard to make it a comfortable space for you.
Do not smoke--anywhere (inside or out), period.
If you open the main doors, please turn all lights out in the cottage to reduce the number of bugs inside the cottage.
Do not let any animals in the cottage.
Please be careful on the rocky access path; it is old and uneven. We will leave outside lights on for you, but ask that you turn them off when you go to bed. Also, please turn off lights inside when you are out.
We have frequent and unexpected thunderstorms during the warmer months in the mountains, so please be sure to close all windows while you are out. Also close them while you are there if the rain is coming in the windows.
Lucky W Farm is a working farm and has potential hazards. We ask that visitors use caution around electric fences, bee hives, swimming pool and horses. Guests assume all liability for themselves and their children. Our swimming pool is open with no protective enclosure. For this reason we have a no children under 8 policy. Guests are welcome to use the pool, but please note that it is the family pool so you may have company while you swim.
Our free-roaming chickens are part of the charm of our place. So crowing in the wee hours is to be expected and a vital piece of the natural ambiance.
Put all dirty towels on the floor in front of the shower.
Wipe any food from the kitchen counters. Put all dirty dishes in the dishwasher and start before you leave.
Put bathroom trash into the can in the kitchen.
We can recycle newspaper, cartons, plastic number one and two only, and mixed paper. Please put these in the gray bin in the kitchen.
This is a great place to stay
The Withers family is very helpful and the cottage is very comfortable and sweet
We had a great time staying at the Lucky W! Jessica and her husband made us feel very welcome. They gave us a lot of great recommendations for restaurants and provided fresh eggs, coffee, and honey in the cottage.
We ended up taking an Uber back to the Lucky W from a concert on Saturday night. Jessica was kind enough to give us a ride back to our car, told us about an amazing brunch spot (Early Girl), and let us check out a little bit late. We were very impressed and hope to return to Asheville soon and stay with Jessica again!
Oh, where to start....
The cottage was everything we hoped for...and more. It was clean, quiet, and restful. At the end of a day exploring downtown, it was nice to come back to the cottage--about 10 minutes from downtown. The hospitality was unmatched, with coffee and farm-fresh (their chickens) eggs each morning. Our last evening there, we chatted in their kitchen for a while, talking about life, music, food, and such. My wife and I were looking for rest, and we found it at Lucky W. Grateful for this kind of hospitality. If we ever stay in Asheville again, we're staying here. And, I'll be sure to tell others...
Our trip to Lucky W was absolutely perfect. The cottage, although relatively close to the main house, was the secluded get away we needed for the weekend. The cottage is also close enough to downtown, so we were able to take advantage of the awesome restaurants had to offer. I will definitely recommend Lucky W to others who go to Asheville. Way better than staying in a hotel!!
We were so pleased with our stay. Loved the decor and everything we needed was provided. It was clean, quiet, and the bed was so comfy. Thanks again!
What a stellar experience! Staying at the cottage far exceeds any five star hotel experience you could wish far. Keep your feet warm with radiant heat, sip fine teas from the stocked kitchen, and watch the chickens walk by outside the windows.
This was my first experience with AirBnB and it was unbelievable. Jessica and William where phenomenal hosts and I can't wait to go back to visit. Everything I could ever want was provided for. It was clear that they created a very intentional environment to ensure a positive stay for all guests. The dogs, the fresh eggs and coffee, the comfortable beds, the guitar, the land, the Asheville maps, the music speakers, the incredible bathroom and kitchen... I'm a raving fan. We felt like we were apart of the family.
Hi! We are from Asheville NC. We have a small farm just outside the city of Asheville where we raise chickens, bees, and horses. We sell eggs and honey.
We love to travel and camp. We are interested in knowing a place we visit by knowing the people who live and work there. We want to eat the regional cuisine and find things and do things we can't do at home.
