Brand New Luxury Cottage - 10 Minutes from Downtown Asheville
Explore the tastes and sights of Asheville effortlessly from our brand new, family-friendly, girls weekend, or friends gathering in this 3 bedroom 2 bath cottage. Merlot on the Mountain is nestled on the side of Cedar Cliff mountain 5-minutes southeast of the Blue Ridge Parkway, and only 10 minutes from Downtown Asheville and The Biltmore Estate.

Closer to home, enjoy a quick 5-minute walk to DayMoon, our neighborhood coffee shop. Stop in and support the Signs for Hope Global Marketplace offering unique gifts from Fair Trade Federation artisans, with proceeds donated to deaf children around the world.

Merlot on the Mountain is a North Carolina Certified Green Built, contemporary cottage with all of the warmth and sophistication of the wine it's named after. The Cottage is steps away from the community fire pit, grill and picnic tables.

Bookings are like good wine, they go fast! Book with us today to experience all of the town and country adventures Asheville has to offer.

Both Instacart and Whole Foods grocery delivery are available right to the front door. Don't want to cook or go out again? Especially with little ones? No worries! Relax with dinner delivered from KickBackAVL featuring popular, award-winning Asheville restaurants or keep it simple with familiar family favorites from DoorDash.

All 3 SmartTVs include complimentary Disney+ and Hulu's Live TV Bundle.
