Snug in the western NC mountains, just off a scenic byway, this 1940s hideaway lies waiting for you to discover it. Gypsy Cottage is the perfect setting for free spirits who appreciate small wonders, like antique stained glass windows and tree-shaded rocking chairs. With two full bedroom suites and zen spaces both indoors and out, you’ll have plenty of opportunities for blissed out relaxation. Excitement beckons just a few miles away, from vibrant downtowns to winding mountain trails.

Now Under New Management

Gypsy Cottage has kept its soul throughout the decades with details including a reclaimed wood interior, original flooring and diamond lattice windows. Slow down and experience small moments of enchantment—like watching evening light slant through stained glass or listening to raindrops patter on the metal roof. Enjoy some smores around the FirePit under a starry night's sky.

Greet the morning with sun salutations on the enclosed porch. Or sneak out to sip your morning coffee in the tucked-away outdoor sitting area, where the stone garden gnomes will keep you company.

Before you set off on the day’s big adventure, make breakfast in a sun-drenched kitchen with a full set of appliances. An 1830s-armoire-turned-pantry and lofted dining area with aged patina accents make even the most ordinary of mornings just a bit more charming.

Rainy afternoons are best spent curled up in an overstuffed armchair in the living area with a movie on the flat-screen TV. Or pass the time by with a book or board game—you’ll find plenty of options in the antique hutch. Evenings are made for gathering around the firepit while the moon peeks out overhead.

With two separate queen-size suites, each with soothing palettes and full en-suite bathrooms, it won’t take long for everyone in your group to feel right at home here.

Gypsy Cottage is just off of Highway 108, a 22-mile stretch of road that winds through scenic farmlands, old growth forests, and small towns rich with history. Just a 10-minute drive away is Rutherfordton’s Main Street, home to both an array of beloved local restaurants and a peaceful creekside walking trail.

Despite the quiet woodland setting, there’s plenty of excitement to be found nearby. Within a 25-minute drive, you’ll find Tryon International Equestrian Center, Forest City's Pavilion on Park Square and historic Tryon Theatre. Downtown Asheville is just over an hour away.

For those seeking to spend time in the great outdoors, Western North Carolina has plenty to offer. Spend an afternoon splashing and sunbathing at Lake Lure, climb to the top of a granite cliff for panoramic views at Chimney Rock, or choose from dozens of nearby hiking trails to spend some quiet time with Mother Nature.

Where you’ll be

Rutherfordton, North Carolina, United States

The Cottage is situated just off Highway 108--a commemorative motor route following the Overmountain Victory Trail, which terminates at Kings Mountain National Military Park, the site of an important and decisive Revolutionary War victory. Beautiful country views await as you travel in any direction. While this location is car-dependent, you'll find easily accessible country roads for peaceful evening walks.

Founded in 1787, visit one of the oldest towns in Western North Carolina. Located just 16 miles east of Lake Lure, Rutherfordton in Rutherford County is a literal gold mine of interesting history. Beautiful historic antebellum homes line Main Street near downtown, along with shops, restaurants and one of the best children's museums in the state. Visit the Bechtler House to learn about a private mint that produced $2+ million in gold coins in the early 1800s, the first dollar gold coin in the nation.

Marvel at and purchase creations by 200 local artists in the Rutherford County Visual Arts Center (160 North Main Street). Month-long exhibits are held for various art forms. Nearby, stop by Small Town Coffee Roasters (116 West Court Street) for java and pastries. And check out the 1925 City Hall and Fire Station (134 North Washington Street) that has been transformed into The Firehouse Inn and the Blue Ridge Design studio. Stop by the Town Hall (129 N Main) to learn more about the local history
