This 1000 sqft ,pet friendly , 2 bed, 1 bath & full kitchen. Come meet our adorable resident animals ( pigs, ducks, and chickens). Only 36 miles to West asheville, close to the Smoky Mountain National Park, skiing, and the quaint town of Waynesville. All proceeds from the rental go to support Iron Will Animal Sanctuary.

The space
Winslow Cottage is decorated with antiques, and has a very charming and unique vibe. I live right next door on the property and am available as needed. This is a wonderful pet friendly rental. We are located on an animal sanctuary so we ask that your are respectful to the animals that live here. The Cottage has window units and ceiling fans throughout. It has pocket WIFI, and Dish network in the living room and back bedroom. Winslow is stocked with games, books, and DVD's to use. There is also a washer and dryer onsite. Due to the age (built in the 50’s) of the house is has add ons, one of those add ons is a bedroom, so the bedrooms are adjoining. (This doesn’t bother most people). The cottage can sleep up to 5 people comfortably.

Depending on your cell phone provider you may have limited to no reception on certain parts of the property there is a landline phone that can be used for emergency calls, this line is shared with the main house.

Pandemic cleaning: All bedding including duvet covers and shames are bleached between guests, and all household surfaces and appliances are sanitized with a rubbing alcohol and vinegar mixture.
We ask that if you are not feeling well that you please stay home as we try to uphold the safety of our family and guests.

I’m a vegan animal chiropractor, I love to volunteer and work around my property. I’m a sucker for the oldies and greatly made baked goods.
