About this listing
Just minutes to downtown and the Blue Ridge Parkway, 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 19th century antique bed with a 3" memory foam topper, 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 in North Asheville situated just below the Blue Ridge Parkway with incredible sunsets and views. It has 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 and uber 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 do not allow any animals into the cottage.
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 or vape--anywhere (inside or out), period.
• 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 #1 and 2 only, and mixed paper. Please put these in the bin in the kitchen.
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 the grounds, uneven paths and walkways, 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.
Hi! My husband William and I are from Asheville NC. We have a small farm just minutes from downtown where we raise chickens, bees, and horses. We sell eggs and honey.
We love to travel and camp. We are interested in knowing the places we visit by knowing the people who live and work there. We want to eat the regional cuisine and find and do things we can't do at home.
