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.

Guest access
Entire home and yard. Additional vacant lot next door is great for outdoor recreation or just watching the wildlife - rabbits and wild turkeys are frequent visitors!
Please note: our driveway is shared, please allow space for their vehicle.

Other things to note
Old Fort offers a grocery store, post office, bank and ATM machines, a library, Mountain Gateway Museum, Arrowhead Gallery & Studios, K&R Antiques as well as numerous hiking, cycling and waterfall trails. Camp Grier is just down the road and has public access (during fall, winter & spring) to additional trails- both cycling and equestrian and use of their new cycling pump station for a small fee.

Railway Rest is located just outside the town limits in a quiet and peaceful setting. A vacant field and forested area are adjacent and to the rear of the property allowing guests privacy. Listen to the sound of Mill Creek across the street and enjoy fishing from its banks in town.

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!
