The space
Charming mountain retreat with FREE NIGHT SPECIALS year-round!

Nestled in the Newfound River Valley, this modern slice of French-Country is just 15-20 minutes from downtown Asheville, and has some of the best views in the whole region, with mountain scenes you'd expect an hour or more out. From the front deck you can see the whole 180-degree panorama of the Newfound valley, reminiscent of a Little Switzerland meeting the Hobbit's Shire. It's beautiful and peaceful, and the sunsets can be breathtaking, especially from the hot tub and the fire-pit patio.

Paradise Cottage is furnished and decorated in a modern slightly Country-French style - unique, tasteful and super comfy with lots of artwork collected in our travels. We stay here as well and like it to feel luxurious, peaceful and cozy. Two good sized bedrooms, both with plush queen beds and black-out drapes, look out onto peaceful woods behind the cottage. Our beds are high quality with comfortable mattresses and great linens. We love to sleep, especially on vacation, and are proud of how comfy the beds are!

There's an electric fireplace which keeps the house nice and toasty in the winter (the cottage has central heat, too).

On the deck you can lounge on the chairs or relax in the hot tub while enjoying the sweeping mountain views.

Entertain yourself inside with Spectrum high-speed internet, Roku, Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Pandora subscriptions; as well as books, games, local TV channels.

A large circular patio with a large fire-pit, equipped with a large cauldron fire-pit, Weber gas grill, ample seating, and lawn games, surrounded by the mountains, is also available by reservation.

This is one of three dwellings situated on a 5-acre family property that has a nice secluded feel. We live downstairs in a completely separate unit. You will enjoy full privacy, but we are also available to help via phone or text if need be.

There'll be a dozen fresh, free-range eggs and starter of fresh roasted coffee for you when you arrive - provided by local neighbors who run a premium roasting business in town. We also provide all linens for you. We hope you book with us so we can show you our hospitality and share this gorgeous mountain retreat with you!

“When you are lucky enough to be in the mountains, you are lucky enough!”

This is a very beautiful 5-acre family property with a nice country feel that's only a short drive to Asheville. It's really one of the most special spots in the whole Asheville valley. That's why we moved here and love it so much!

We are married and in our youthful 60's :-) We manage both Serenity Mountain LLC properties: Serenity House and Paradise Cottage. We love to explore Western North Carolina, drive the Blue Ridge Parkway, hike the trails, try new restaurants or return to our favorites ... we love this place! John grew up in Florida, is a Vietnam war veteran, has traveled extensively, and is a retired federal officer. Kathy grew up in Colorado and is a licensed minister, director of a thriving Community Services ministry, and the church administrator at Foster SDA Church. Both Serenity House and Paradise Cottage are on the same property. We live in the basement apartment of Paradise Cottage. You will enjoy your privacy; however, should you need us, we are readily available by phone or text. We would love to open one of our homes to you and share the extraordinary experience of being in this gorgeous incomparable place on the planet! FYI: You may notice that many of our reviews are to "Nick" and/or "Sarah", who are Kathy's son and daughter-in-law; they manage the properties from time to time.
