We chose Story Book
Cottage for its charm and close proximity to the Biltmore Estate in Asheville and area waterfalls. We were not
disappointed. Story Book has virtually everything you need to feel at home. We especially enjoyed the kitchen for our omelets in the mornings.
Although breakfast was the only meal we ate in, I took a look through the cabinets and we could have literally
cooked anything we wanted. I couldn't think of anything I would have needed that wasn't supplied.
The jacuzzi tub was great for a good soak after our long days of hiking in the mountains looking at the areas
beautiful waterfalls. We slept great in the very comfortable king-sized bed. Everything smelled clean and fresh and
I wasn't afraid to walk around bare-footed :) Story Book is beautifully and comfortably decorated and peaceful. We
will definitely be back.
Thanks Stephanie & Robert for making our 24th Anniversary trip a great one!!
-David & LuVon,
We very much
enjoyed our stay at SBC. The home was very cozy, and we had all the privacy we needed. We had a great time
hiking in the Dupont Forest and seeing the waterfalls that are close by. We have traveled to the mountains many
times, and visited several of the surrounding area attractions such as Biltmore, NC Arboretum, and Hickory Nut
Gorge. We were looking for the comforts of home while away as we are not the camping type! We especially enjoyed
the added pleasure of a massage from the chair and soaking in the hot tub after hiking all day. Would recommend
this home to anyone looking for some peace and quiet on their trip!!!

Dear Stephanie and
We so enjoyed our stay in your Story Book Cottage! Not only was it a great location that allowed us to easily
travel to so many sites offered within the Hendersonville & Asheville areas, but it was the cabin itself that
was nicely decorated, clean and cozy, private, and relaxing.
Our boys really enjoyed exploring the backyard's eleven acres, and also the nearby mountain bike trails. Jim and I
really appreciated the hot-tub after hiking, and a long day at the Biltmore Estate! Thank you again, and we'll definitely be back.

enjoyed our stay at the Story Book Cottage. It was decorated wonderfully and our children enjoyed the outside
play set! The house is well-equipped, you've thought of everything! Thank you for sharing your home with
My husband and I
stayed at the Storybook Cottage for our 15th anniversary. We loved the interior decorating. The Cottage was
clean and had everything that we needed. It was close to all the special attractions, and was a great place to
My husband and I
spent 8 days at the Story book cottage and it exceeded our expectations. The cottage is truly a delight and so
well supplied with anything we may have needed. We cooked most of our night meals either in the kitchen or on
the grill and were very pleased with all of the cooking utensils. We would definitely recommend the cottage to
anyone looking for a getaway with all the comforts of home.
-Steve and Jean,
I chose the Story
Book Cottage as a home away from home for myself and my family during our trip to N. Carolina. It turned out to
be a fabulous choice! The Cottage has so many amenities, charming decor, and was very clean. We would certainly
wish to stay there again in future!
We loved our
stay at the cottage. You know how sometimes you book a getaway and the description says "luxury, be pampered"
and then when you get there it's a disappointment? I've kind of taken that as inevitable after staying in many
places. What a wonderful surprise to come across this cabin that actually lived up to the promise!!! It is nicer
than our house, we wanted to just move in. Everything was perfect from the decor to the fully equipped kitchen
to the comfy beds, the hot tub, a video library for relaxing in front of the fire in the evenings, the woods out
back, even the neighbors were friendly, it was everything we hoped for and more. We would definitely stay there
again the next time we visit Asheville. The location is also central to everywhere we wanted to go. Downtown
Hendersonville itself was fun with art galleries and restaurants, and the apple farms were only a few minutes
away. Thank you for going the extra mile with this space!

The Story Book
Cottage was a great place for us to spend a wonderful fall break. It is a very cute cottage, with a lot of
comforts. We especially enjoyed the nice kitchen, the fireplace, and the hot tub. Also, the mountains are great.
There are a lot of fun trails, for hiking, around here. Some very beautiful trails are the Looking Glass Rock
Trail and the trails at the Graveyard Fields. Overall, this is a very great, little home for a vacation and
there are so many things you can do around here. We loved the Story Book cottage, and we would love to come

Thank you so
much for the use of your beautifully decorated cottage. I normally spend hours, days, weeks and sometimes even
months if I book ahead trying to find what I consider the best vacation home to suit my families needs.
My family was very pleased (and they are not easy to please!).
First, thank you for the Halloween Candy. We got rained out trick or treating and my son was so content with the
basket that you left, he didn’t shed 1 tear.
Oh about the
house where can I start...... First the bedding, linens and decorations throughout are wonderful. The beds and
blankets are so comfortable. The massage chair... well that was an every day fight between us all who got it
first.......Oh how great to have that to come home to after a long day of hiking.. or should I say climbing
since the elevator was out at Chimney Rock and we had to climb to the top. The hot tub was a great asset. We
only used it once for a very short time because we were so exhausted. It was nice to have the back yard is so
Ok... what is
the most important part to a vacation rental to my family... a great kitchen because they like to eat their
meals at home. Your kitchen had everything that we needed to cook complete meals, unlike so many other rentals.
I loved everything and how easy it was to find. Ingles and Fresh Market were both so close that we utilized the
great kitchen often. The games, the movies, the bathroom towels, the picnic basket, the fireplace, the pens, the
pads, you thought of everything. I will highly recommend your home to anyone who asks and I hope to come back
soon.. maybe around the holidays so I can get the feeling of Christmas.. You know winters in Florida just don’t
feel like Christmas to me.

We LOVED our stay
at SBC! I had researched many properties and was looking for something affordable, with a good location that had
the amenities we needed (a full kitchen was a MUST) We could not have been more pleased! Every single amenity one could think of was there and few we hadn't
thought of either! We came to NC to spend parents weekend with our son who attends a nearby boarding school. We
didn't plan to do a lot of "things" in the area (we've done those on previous trips), we just wanted to feel
like we were home and be a family. SBC was the perfect place to do that!
We cooked, played, hot-tubbed, laughed, cried, the whole 9 yards. It was a true home-away-from-home. The beds were
to DIE for! So very comfy and the throws on the beds and sofas were delightful. We felt a little guilty staying
inside so much when the weather was perfect, but we did exactly what we needed to do.
Thanks for a lovely
stay at SBC. We hope to stay again in the spring!
