The homeowners, Stephanie & Robert, actually live up to
their mission statement, "You'll be outrageously spoiled..." at Rose Cottage. They really have thought of
everything to meet your needs and make your stay pleasant and enjoyable. The accommodations and furnishings
are absolutely remarkable. They've done a terrific job with the renovations and updates. We found everything
to be in superb condition and operating order.
As I love to cook when I'm away on holiday, I was most impressed with the well-equipped kitchen. Though I generally
bring my own oils and spices when I rent a vacation home, I was fascinated to find a cabinet full of all kinds of
awesome spices. Even more impressive, how often do you rent a property and find junk cookware that you wouldn't
want to cook with to feed your worst enemy no less your family and friends? Not so in Stephanie's kitchen I can
promise you! She provides very good quality appliances, cookware and utensils. I prepared excellent, healthy meals
every night during our stay. There was no need to spend lots of money going out to eat because everything we needed
was right there. After dinner, you'll enjoy resting and relaxing on the large back deck and enjoy the peacefulness
and seclusion...and if the weather is appropriate, you can take advantage of the well kept pool and/or hot tub. I
absolutely will stay again at Rose Cottage the next time we return to Asheville region.

Fabulous! My husband and I have rented cottages each summer
for the past six years in a variety of areas. We have stayed in places that were well maintained and well
stocked but never have we stayed in a cottage that was 100 percent wonderful. All the living areas were
comfy...lots of sofas to congregate and watch TV - a large well-equipped kitchen, luxurious bedrooms and the
ultimate outdoor spaces imaginable. The hot tub and pool area had lots of chairs and tables for cards,
reading a good book (lots to choose from in the library and games area), BBQing and eating breakfast, lunch
or dinner. The front porch is cute and cozy for bird-watching or horse-watching. As tour guides, we have
brought groups through the Hendersonville/Asheville area and now we are delighted to have found a place where
we can host our friends and family and show them the spectacular area. We will be returning for family
vacations with our new grandchildren. Thanks Stephanie for thinking of everything and being such a gracious
and generous hostess.

Rose Cottage has it all and is truly a home to be enjoyed!!! Stephanie and Robert have thought of everything.
The most comfy bed, delightful decor throughout and a well appointed kitchen to cook real food. Cozy and
private. Our 2 weeks went all too fast. Extra bonus are the 5 neighboring horses that come to the fence when
bribed with a carrot. We have rented other houses in the area, but none were near the quality of the Rose
Cottage. It is close to Hendersonville & Asheville. In Hendersonville, visit McFarland's Bakery for
excellent donuts. WNC Farmers Market is worth a visit as well as the tailgate markets in the area. My husband
and I hope to return next year. Thank you Stephanie and Robert.

The Rose Cottage will spoil you! Everything in this vacation home has been well
thought out and no expense was spared when it came to amenities! We had business to attend to in the area and
enjoyed "coming home" everyday instead of being cooped up in a hotel room! Our Nanny had no problem entertaining
our 4 year old while we worked. Between the pool, hot tub, playground, games, horses, movies and oh yes the
massage chair, there was plenty to keep all ages entertained! We definitely hope the Rose Cottage is available
next year at the same time! We will be calling Stephanie and Robert again!

Thanks a million to Stephanie and Robert for making Rose Cottage a home away from home.
It was just wonderful! The house could not be more inviting. Our daughter absolutely loved playing in the kids'
bedroom and play yard and petting and feeding the horses. We found something new within less than an hour of
driving every day. There are still things we missed and discussed a return visit on our way home from that one!
We certainly hope Rose Cottage is available then as well. We could not have stayed in a nicer

Many thanks to Robert & Stephanie! This trip was spectacular! The drive was long from Arkansas. We had no idea what to expect when we got here since our daughter-in-law
made all of the arrangements. What a pleasant
surprise! The house is fabulous with all the comforts of
home. I never sleep all night at home, but the king bed is so
comfy; I slept the whole night through.
We have enjoyed everything including the horses that got out of the fence and came to
visit. LOL The kids loved the pool and the adults loved the
hot tub. We put up the bad mitten/volleyball net and
played. You have thought of everything and then
I would love to come back once a year if possible. Our kids met us here from Goldsboro, NC and loved it too. I will recommend the Rose Cottage to anyone I know coming this
way. Thank you for everything!!

Stephanie and Robert you have done such a wonderful job of remodeling, refurbishing &
decorating this home.Your thoughtfulness in providing directions, instructions and area information was most
helpful. The house is VERY comfortable. It was easy to make ourselves at home during our week's stay. The
location makes it so quick and easy to get to surrounding areas of interest. And I have to say a special thank
you for being so gracious and accommodating.

This home was well-equipped. Our stay was quiet and peaceful. We walked in the
neighborhood and enjoyed the badminton set out back. The hot tub was fun. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our

We had a Family Reunion here! Our son and his Danish wife and 3 kids (ages 7, 4, 1 1/2)
from Denmark, my husband & I (the grandparents!) from New Orleans, and our other son and their 2 1/2 year
old and 6 month old) also from New Orleans. AND the kids' Great-grandmother from Tryon, N.C. Our daughter and
her husband and 1 year old from Asheville came down a lot to be with all of us.
We are so thankful we found the Rose Cottage - it has been a perfect fit for our multi-generational yearly
get-together! We saw a white squirrel - and the horses were wonderfully friendly. Our weather was great! Our son
from Denmark will hopefully
send you photos of his daughter Ella (7) in the pool for your website. We enjoyed the hot tub several times - one
time when it was snowing!
The strollers and high chair were WONDERFUL to have - as was the whole kid-friendly atmosphere. Our Danish
daughter-in-law said this cottage was tops - their kids loved the big play yard and play gym - we had a blast
playing volley ball and badminton, and croquet (tho' we couldn't remember the rules very well!). We had lovely BBQ
meals on the deck - that grill is wonderful.
The sheets and afghans were all luxurious and homey/comforting. Office supplies were so thoughtful - you really
thought of everything to make this reunion memorable. I'll send you a family photo we'll have framed to enjoy for
years and years. This is a place that is as close to home as you could get...enjoy!

We just returned from our Asheville vacation, and it was wonderful. Stephanie and Robert have
truly thought of everything, from the wonderful bed linens and comfortable mattresses, to the baby gear, to the
games and videos in the living room, to the umbrellas hanging near the front door (which thankfully we didn't
have to use during our visit.) We got almost daily visits from the horses next door, to the delight of our
2-year-old. The weather was perfect for using the pool, which we did daily, and our son loved the "hot
Stephanie and Robert were easily accessible to us by
phone when we had questions about the property, and very responsive to our calls. We will definitely be in touch
when we return to Asheville next spring for another family vacation.

everything, from the wonderful bed linens and comfortable mattresses, to the games and videos in the living
