100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Situated on a quiet road in Pisgah National Forest, Railway Rest is minutes to I-40, downtown Old Fort, and Black Mountain. Asheville, The Blue Ridge Parkway, Grandfather Mountain, Chimney Rock and Biltmore House are a short drive. Hike and bike the trails in Pisgah National Forest, fish for trout in nearby Mill Creek. Watch wild turkeys or a train headed up the mountain. Perfect for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with kids).

The space
The cottage is newly renovated; cozy and quaint, offering a quiet relaxing stay. Stocked breakfast items are included - eggs, coffee, tea and homemade bread! Far enough away from the noise in town, but so convenient for all the area offers. It has everything you need to enjoy a little R&R. Get outside! Play Frisbee or Badminton in the yard. A fire pit located in the back yard is great for cool evenings. If you prefer, curl up with a book or magazine or pick a game or DVD available for a variety of ages. WiFi and cable TV available. Combined living and dining area, FULLY equipped kitchen as well as full-sized laundry facilities. Larger bedroom features a small dresser, closet and a queen-sized bed with a memory foam topper. A double bed, dresser, and closet make up the smaller bedroom.

My wife and I live and work in western NC. We're not natives, but have adopted the area as home. We love it here in the Blue Ridge Mountains - what's not to love? Working in tourism for years and living in the area gives my wife a unique perspective - she knows where "the locals go" as well as the visitors! We can't wait to share our home and all the area offers with you!
