Wake up to savoring a cup of coffee in the crisp, fresh, mountain air on the rocking chair front porch, or gather around the fire pit in the evening and enjoy roasting hot dogs and marshmallows as you watch fireflies light up to spacious backyard. The backyard is a family, and guest, favorite for playing croquet, badminton, Frisbee, bocce ball, or just to pull up a chair and enjoy the peaceful sound of your natural mountain surroundings. Although you will feel surrounded by nature, the Artists Cottage is minutes from I-40 and just 5 miles from the quaint shops and charming restaurants of downtown Black Mountain. Enjoy exploring the Montreat Camp trails and playground or head to Lake Tomahawk, complete with public tennis courts and a walking trail around the scenic lake.
